I ain’t sure whether it’s because of the unpredictable Monsoon sudden climate changes or because of the fact I am now bearing Tonsilitis symptoms : I am now in no good health; feeling a little bit lethargic, nauseated and minor diarrhea. Since a Tonsilitis patient is prone to fever, body aches and sore eyes and throats, everything becomes so delicate. Anyway, since Genting Highlands situated just around the corner from the idyllic Serendah where I teach now, I decided to have the ultimate weekend peekaboo on the apex.
Ayah, Mak and Rifqi came to the house last week because Rifqi was to be staying with them for at least 3 weeks. Although the house was a bit congested and chaotic but having Rifqi around was a cheery moment. I went there on Saturday afternoon and checked-in at First World Hotel. It was a chilling-to-the-bone atmosphere and very refreshing.
On whole I could say that the trip to Genting Highland was a fun and a memorable YET it wasn’t perfect. Why did I say that? The place is too consumed with its international glitz and had lost its locality flavors. I hardly could find a Malay Restaurant that serves typical ‘kampung’ cuisines (except for Restoran Kampung located in Resort Hotel; but I found it in a bit too late time)! I don’t give a damn for westerner-wannabes who probably scorned and jeered my ‘authentic Malay’ taste because that is how I am! I can’t live with sausages, bagels-and-butter or mango juices for ever! I need to eat rice at least once a day! I wonder how would I fair living abroad? Sheesh.
I enjoyed the scenery although I didn’t get to really explore the place because of time-constraint. Furthermore, I am not really in the pink of health so it becomes a bit of a barrier for me. Nonetheless, Alhamdulillah that the plan commenced without major glitches! (,”)
