Genting Food Recommendation

-->

Vietnam House
Vietnam House is the restaurant at Genting Highland, situated right at the center of Genting Indoor Theme Park, near Genting First World Hotel. It offers unique and tasty Vietnamese cuisine, with reasonable price.

The chef is a Vietnamese, Nguyen Thi My Phuong, and staffs are also Vietnamese too. They served the customer in English, wearing their traditional Vietnamese costume.


Decoration was done in order to give customer the ‘real’ sense of being in Vietnam!

Vietnamese Food
The food are good, with the famous spring roll from Vietnam. Vegetables were wrapped into a roll by a thin layer of skin made of flour. It can serve as both an appetizer, or a dessert as it harbors the natural aroma of the different vegetables.


This is the mixed fruit with blended ice at the bottom. It may look small from here but in fact it is a size for 2 adult.

Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup.

The entrance fees for adult cost us $45 each. This fee is inclusive of entrance to Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, and also a souvenir. However, there are promotional tickets and also special discount for foreigners if you bring your passport. Due to the heavy human traffic that morning, we did not take the normal queue; instead, we purchased our ticket at the front counter which was slightly more expensive.

The Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift Show Girls HD Wallpaper



A great Movie directed by Justin Lin in 2006, The Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift was another favorite movie of car lovers. Cars featured in this film include 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX GSR driven by Sean, 2006 Mazda RX-8 driven by Neela, 2006 Nissan 350Z driven by Morimoto and Villain DK, Veilside Fortune RX-7 driven by Han etc.
etc. 

Storyline
A high school kid, Sean Boswell (Lucas Black), was involved in illegal racing with his schoolmates and commit juvenile offense. To avoid going to jail, he was then transferred to Tokyo, Japan with his father, who is a military. From there, he knew a bunch of friends who were underground car racers and drifters. Sean started as a rookie drifter, was then taught on how to drift by Han (Sung Kang). In the final race against DK (Brian Tee),Sean won the race and get himself out from the Yakuza fight.

Movie was shot both in Tokyo and Los Angelas. What I like about the movies mainly is the cars, second is the skills in drifting. All the drifting in the movie were done by professional drifters, and not using any CGI or computer editing. 

Wallpapers
Besides seeing beautiful cars, these are some high-definition(HD) wallpapers of sexy models posing beside the cars used in The Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift.

Proton Waja as BumbleBee in Malaysia



On my normal day of driving in Kuching, I came across Bumblebee, which has not transformed and in his vehicle form. 

This is in fact a yellow Proton Waja, modified with custom fiber at its car plate, with crystal tail lamp. Moreover, what impressed me was the custom solid yellow paint, with the signature BumbleBee stripes on the car.




And this, is the original BumbleBee featured in Transformer I, II and III. Its model is 2009 Chevrolet Camaro, painted yellow and added stripes on it.



As for this is the first version of BumbleBee in Transformer I,1977 Chevrolet Camaro, before it transformed into 2009 Chevrolet Camaro.


With the film Transformer, it has impacted the whole automotive world in United States and Europe, making Chevrolet Camaro the best selling sports car since then. 

“The Transformers franchise has helped introduce Camaro – and Chevrolet – to a whole new generation of fans,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. In 2010, for the first time in 24 years, Chevrolet Camaro was the top sales sports car in U.S, followed by Ford Mustang. 
Not only for the automotive market, Chevrolet Camaro has become the most-searched-for car on the web in 2009.

Singapore Universal Studio Attractions:
Singapore Universal Studio officially opens at 10am. However, we arrived slightly earlier at 9:15am, and it was a good start to reach early. We shot a few photos with the signature Universal Studio globe at the entrance. Because it is early, there were no crowd thus making photo taking easier.



The queue started to build up when at 9:30am and the gate opens at around 9:45am. Immediately we entered and started playing each attraction.

There are many attractions in Universal Studio Singapore which I will not list all of them here. The first on our left is Madagascar: Madagascar: A Crate Adventure. In fact it is mainly a family ride in which you can bring your children and sit in the board and enjoy the story.


After exploring Madagascar for an hour or so, we proceed to Jurassic Park, in which one can enjoy thrill rides, and also family rides, namely Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. One of the attractions here was still under renovation while we were there. Along the path there are many restaurants and stalls available to quench your thirst. Food and beverages are not cheap, you may want to bring your own drinking water although outside food and drinks are not allowed.

  
Then we came to The Mummy! This was the first thrill ride we played on that morning. We were required to put our belongings in the lockers as we were not allowed to carry any bags for the high speed ride. As for the locker, it is free for the first 20 minutes. In conclusion, the ride is AMAZING! You get to sit in a high speed roller coaster in the dark and enjoy various exciting scene. However, if your spouse or partners do not like thrill ride, please don’t try this!

 This was what happened if your spouse couldn't stand thrill ride!

Apart from playing different themed-attractions, we were in fact taking brisk walk along the path and taking photos. Classic cars which date back to 1950s, old buildings are favorite spot for photo taking.
 
 Shrek's House

In addition, there are live shows available at specific time, such as Water World etc. In Water World, the seats are allocated as dry, partially wet and wet. For the first few rows, the audience will definitely get wet while enjoying the show. However, no photographing and video taking are allowed during the live shows. 



At 4.00pm, we managed to finish about 90% of all Universal Studio attractions and shows. The other 10% is extreme thrill rides in which I dare not try again with my wife.

To our surprise, Singapore Universal Studio job opening was a real success, with almost 99% of the live show performance was done by foreigners who speak excellent English.

In short, if you have a chance to visit Singapore, please do not miss Universal Studio. You can purchase your entrance pass online to avoid queuing up for hours just for the tickets.
