The long awaited AWANA GENTING POST IS HERE!!!
So, I first have to say that you’re all lucky for reading my post before making a decision to go! Okay, not like that! I don’t mean my post is awesome, I mean you’ll be informed! Aiyaaa you all think I’m so cocky like that!
I went thinking that I was going to be spending a night getting pampered and my feet massaged. Why? because I didn’t do any research! HAHAAHA I really thought that, the whole bus trip up to Genting! Go ahead and laugh!
Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised with what we were greeted with though! It was an amazing night that we spent in the jungle! I’d love to do it all over again… minus the rain!~
We started our journey at Golden Mile. I had my kaya toast and teh tarik (in a bag) in hand. I ordered from the aunty who didn’t speak any english and I didn’t speak much mandarin… so it was a good way to start the morning, you know playing guess what the crazy angmoh is saying!
I waited for a while and no one had reached. I was all like “YEAH, FIRST! FIRST!” <;<; kinda like those kids on youtube videos that are so proud that they are first. Until I realised that everyone was on the other side of the road. woops.
Met up with everyone on the other side of the road and jumped on the bus! BUS WAS SUPER COMFY! I’ve never been on the bus from Singapore to KL before… I’ve only ever flown! So this was a first, it was nice up until my bladder started screaming “TOILET, WHERES THE TOILET?!??!”
So I sat the whole 6 hours eagerly waiting for the next toilet stop. I am the WORST person to travel with on a bus, I just sit there and stare out the window longing for the loo! I thought I was the only one on the bus feeling the same way but when I stopped the bus everyone else followed. Then later I found that our wonderful manager Hui Xian also has a demanding bladder… from this the #weakbladderclub formed.
We reached Genting, the trip is so fun though! Especially when driving through KL! You can see the Petronas towers and all! I didn’t snap any pics because I was afraid that if I took my mind off controlling my bladder bad things would happen!
The food was there waiting, buffet style. Was good to have something to eat especially seeing as I only had 2 clorets mints on the trip up. Dieting yo!
Good to see that they’re getting into the spirit of things.
Time to get down to business. We’re getting a tour of the facilities. My biggest fear was that the toilets would be nasty but they were clean and tidy with locking doors and TOILET paper! Fantastic. A man is now happy.
This where we stayed! I love it! Long House. They weren’t lying, it really is long.
We stayed here overnight. Was really nice at night, everyone hung out together, played “Throw the glow sticks on the bottle of water” game and had fun! We also did activities in here slept there too!
This is where we ate our meals! This place was damn nice! It was like a hotel buffet inside! Let me see if I can find a photo of it!
I stole this photo from Peishi’s blog.
There was heaps of fun activities to do!~ We went on the flying fox, Rock climbing (which I loved), archery (which I bluffed and told them I’d done before but have never done it, ever, like taylor swift ever) and treasure hunting!
We were also made to eat ice creams at night! IN THE COLD! It was painful but also painfully hilarious!
Here’s a pic of Billy chomping on his ice cream!
We had to eat the icecream within a minute or so then throw the stick into the bucket from a distance, then tag our team mate then they’d do the same by the end of the game I knew the formula… shame it was at the end! HAHAHA
After the ice cream games we had a campfire! It was awesome, the heat, the smoke and the GAMES!
First we played “Pass the balloon and if the music stops then you’re the one who has to carry out the dare” game! Was quite funny because peishi got the balloon too many times and had to embarrassing things like BARKING CHRISTMAS CAROLS! I was lucky enough not to capture the balloon!
After that we played a charade style game! This was hilarious… It was like Chinese Whispers mixed with charades. Some of the mixed messages were hilarious and people’s actions… oh my.
AFTER this we had gula farm milo and lepak-ed till lights out! OFF TO SLEEP!
We woke the next morning, showered and got ready for some fun and games!
After breakfast we were greeted by the giant slippers!
Our team had to jump on these and make our way to one end and back! We came second!
Hui Xian, Our ChurpChurp Manager!
After that we had to do the monkey run! Or the Orang Utan Walk…
Here’s Billy Modelling the Balloon!
There’s meiting and billyberry doing the orang utan run in the background.
After walking in giant slippers and looking like monkeys we were given our next task!
I call this the “Tie up all your belongings to make a huge line of things and win” game.
Luckily for our team we had a lot of things on our person! Our line was the biggest *cough cough*
There was one more challenge after this. We had to run to one point and suck up elastic bands just after being made dizzy.
NOW! POINTS ARE EQUAL for the top two teams.
The final challenge. Make a Cheer. The best cheer anyone had ever known.
Ours was some rip off of an american basketball team or something! haah We just made it fit our team name “The three musketeers.” We actually had 4 people in our team but the team name needed to be associated with the number 3.
Anyway, we lost. WE came second though! And we won a prize! 2D1N stay at theme park hotel’s deluxe room! Thank you!
After that we ate and jumped back on the bus but not before we took over 1 million photos. Okay, not really one million photos but you know what I mean. It’s a blogger event! What’d you expect?!
Churpers! L-R: PeiShi, Yina, Angmoh, Billy and Esther
I don’t have that many photos on my camera so If you want to see more I recommend you check out the links I posted earlier!!!
After the photo session we ate again and then went back to Singapore!
I had an awesome time at Awana Genting, I’d recommend it to anyone who is looking to get a bit of adventure in their lives and just have a bit of fun! The staff are great and the location is perfect!
