Then take the room card at kiosk with a small paper with informing all the details such as room number, tower and many more. You also can check in at front office but need to pay RM15.

In each level has a water refill machine for you to refill water.

Hotel did offer free shuttle bus to Chin Swee Caves Temple. As due to the bad weather, I did not have chance to go.

Genting Highlands has 2 casinos. Sky Casino is very near with First World Hotel and it is very big (2 floors). Inside casino can get free drinks. Remember that wearing slippers is no allows to go in. Casino De Genting is a small casino and I did not go in to visit. Only adults who 21 years old and above can go in casino.

At hotel lobby has Lobby Café. We did eat breakfast at there because no many places can look for breakfast. The choice of breakfast is limited such as chicken noodle soup RM 20.50, breakfast fried rice RM 16.00, fried noodle RM 16.00, nasi lemak and wanton noodle (dry/soup).  During booking the hotel, we did get the 20% discount voucher for dine in this café therefore we used the voucher for our breakfast. Beside Lobby Café, you can look for café name “Nyonya Color” which offer quite reasonable price of breakfast.

Melaka Trip 2017: Low Yong Moh


In Jonker Street is quite difficult to look for breakfast in the morning. The hotel staff told us that only 2 shops are early open for breakfast. She took us to a shop named Loh Yong Moh.

We ordered Lotus Leaf Rice RM 4.00, Big Pau/Big Bun RM 3.50, Small Pau RM 1.80, Dim sum (range from RM 2.60-RM 3.20).

In this shop mostly are dim sum, did not have noodle so my parents did not use to it.

I felt most surprised when saw the big bun because the size is middle compare to the one I eat in Labuan or Kota Kinabalu so eat one big bun is not full at all.

Genting Highlands + Melaka Trip 2017

1st June 2017 (Thursday)

Labuan Airport >> Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) 2 >> Quizinn by rasa (Lunch) >> KLIA2 Ground Floor (Bus Station) >> Genting Highlands >> First World Hotel >> Sky Casino >> Malaysia Food Street >> First World Hotel

Flight from Labuan on time departed on 10:25am and arrives at KLIA2 on 12:45pm. Same as usual, I read magazine on flight and found out what is “Air Asia Tune Protect”.

We were having lunch at Quizinn by rasa and I ate Vegetarian Bibimbap which cost me RM 19.10. After lunch, we went ground floor to purchase bus ticket to Genting Highlands. From KLIA2 to Genting Highlands took around 2 hours to reach (14:30-16:30) and cost RM 35 per person.

When went down from bus, we went upstairs to look for Awana Station (4th Floor). At there, we purchased skyway ticket through machine.  Awana Skyway ticket (standard gondola) cost RM 8 per trip.

Awana Station >> Chin Swee Station >> Sky Avenue Station (Level 4)

Skyway did stop a while in Chin Swee station. From this station, you can go to Chin Swee Caves Temple (Opening hour: 7:00am-6:45pm). After go inside skyway will have a cameraman to take your photo and can buy it if you likes when reach the last station.

From Sky Avenue Station, turn left can go to Malaysia Food Street. To go to First World Hotel, you need take escalator to ground floor.

In Malaysia Food Street, you need to purchase a prepaid card before purchase any food.  The card purchase and top up values are limited to RM20, RM50, RM100, RM150, RM200, RM250 or RM300. A refundable deposit of RM2 will be held from the purchase of each card. Refund of unused value and deposit must be requested from the cashier within 7days of most recent top up transaction. No refunds will be given for damaged, lost or stolen cards.

The foods in Genting Highlands are quite expensive. I like the design of Malaysia Food Street. For dinner, we ate fish head curry and spring roll. For breakfast in Malaysia Food Street is very limited only has dim sum and Nasi Lemak.

2nd June 2017 (Friday)

First World Hotel >> Lobby Café >> First World Hotel >> Genting Highlands Skyway >> Bus Ticketing Counter >> Pudu Station>> LRT Plaza Rakyat >> LRT Bandar Tasik Selatan (BTS) Station >> Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) >> Teratai Food Court >> King’s Bakery >> Melaka Sentral >> Hotel Hong>> Jonker Street >> Hotel Hong

When in Awana Station, we went to Go Genting Bus Express Counter (ground floor) to purchase bus ticket to Pudu Station.  My initial plan is take bus to KL Sentral and take KTM to TBS Station. After consult with the staff, he suggested that go to Pudu Station to take LRT is faster than take KTM.  Bus departed on 10:30am and reached Pudu Station on 11:30am.

This was my first time to go Pudu Station. When reached, I have no idea what to go therefore saw some people at there so plan follow them. Suddenly a Malay guy shouted at a group of people to ask them to take lift which is faster therefore we also took lift with the Malay guy. When reached, the Malay guy asked help from us to give him RM2 because he did not have money to eat. We were quite surprised and gave him RM2.

I asked a staff in a shop about how to go LRT station. She told me to go at the center until saw Dunkin Donuts stall. Then turn left to go out from the building. When go out, it has 2 ways which are right and left without signboard show to LRT. This time has 2 ladies with backpacker asked a guy about how to go LRT. We need go upstairs to reach LRT Station Plaza Rakyat to purchase LRT ticket to BTS Station.

When reached BTS station need cross a bridge in order to reach TBS. We purchased bus ticket to Melaka Sentral which departs on 13:15pm and cost RM 10.00. After that, we were having lunch at Teratai Food Court (Level 4) which needs to purchase prepaid card.

From TBS to Melaka Sentral need take around 2.5 hours to reach.  When in Melaka Sentral, the hotel arranged transport for us to hotel. From Melaka Sentral to Hotel Hong is quite near which take around 10 minutes depend on the traffic.

After checked in hotel, we look for food at Jonker Street and some street art. In Jonker street, you can see many people drinks watermelon and we also bought one for tried. Inside watermelon did not have many juices.

Putu Piring is a round, steamed rice cake filled with melted palm sugar or gula Melaka and eaten with freshly grated coconut. I bought Putu Piring with Gula Melaka and peanut inside it. It not tastes very nice as the filings are not so much.

Dim sum in many colors but I not sure the color is artificial or not.

This is egg shape ice-cream with laici flavor.

This handmade noodle is delicious. Inside of it has few soy beans which I did not expected will see and I think it’s also made the soup nice to drink. I also ordered 爱玉which like agar-agar. 

For this Mr. Melaka has gold one which at the end of Jonker Street there. Due to time limit so I did not went inside to see the gold status of Mr. Melaka. Next time has chance will pay for visit.
