Bukit Tinggi & Genting Highlands

The weather nowadays are damn fucking hot so we are hoping for a cool, breezy place to go to. Hubby and I took leave last Wednesday thinking of bringing our Angels to somewhere cold for a day trip. We immediately thought of Genting Highlands :-) Then on second thought, why not visit Bukit Tinggi too since it’s on the way, we can kill 2 birds with 1 stone ;-)

Honestly, it was a greedy and unworthy choice :-( We went to Bukit Tinggi first. We nearly exited the wrong place due to poor signage. In fact, throughout the journey to Bukit Tinggi, the signages were improperly placed or insufficient. It was expensive too as we need to pay for entering Bukit Tinggi; RM12 for each adults and RM8 for each children per entry

First stop: Japanese Village

After a tiring and hot climb, we reached the Japanese Village. MIL and I nearly fainted, lost our breath climbing up the steep road. We parked mid-way as informed by the signboard, not realizing that we can actually drive all the way up! WTF!!!

Second stop: Colmar Tropicale

It was so damn hot by now… not even a cold breeze. There’s nothing much going on here too except for the beautiful French buildings

SV405352 We ordered a small Calzone pizza and 2 glasses of apple juice

SV405354 A delicious large Hawaiian pizza! We also ordered a cup of Milo and a bottled water. Our bill came up to a whopping RM83.80! A little costly but luckily, it was delicious :p

Third stop: Rabbit Farm

SV405381There were donkeys too but their condition was so dilapidated and dirty! So skinny, they looked malnourished too! What happens to the entry fees they collected, I wonder?

SV405382 SV405383The same applied to the deers, they totally looked neglected also. There wasn’t any clean drinking water around, saw one of the deers drinking from a pool of dirty water on the ground :-( 

Last but not least, forth stop: Genting Highlands

Finally, some cool breeze! Unfortunately, we had to stay indoors as it started raining when we reached Genting :-( Sigh! What a trip! Thank goodness my Angels totally enjoyed themselves so it was worth it even with minor hiccups :-)
