The bus took off at 9.40p.m. It's late by 40 minutes. Total of 2 stopovers, 1 at Yong Peng and another at a petrol kiosk in KL. The ride was bumpy. The stopover at Yong Peng lasted for 30 minutes which is a good amount of time for a quick supper. However, I did not do that. Neither did my girlfriend - Ms. JH. Sleep was far more important.
We reached Genting round about 5 in the morning. I was dead tired as I didn't sleep well during the ride. Besides, I didn't feel fresh. My last shower was taken on a Thursday morning and the next one is not until Friday afternoon. Smelly smelly~~~ I was so grateful for that 2nd shower. I wonder how our soldiers tolerate the idea of not being able to shower for days during their training under the hot sun. It would have been a torture for me! But then again, they are guys. Boy am I glad I'm a female. I took a short nap from 6 plus and was up by 9.30a.m. Yes, no matter how tired, this is the most I can take.

Standing Shower on the Left
On the Right, it's a wardrobe where both sides are doors. Meaning, I can have access to my clothes from the toilet or from the pathway leading to the beds on the other side. Get it?

Super Single - Nice
Hotel was clean and basic. TV is small but still manageable. I paid RM315 for a 3D2N stay. Needless to say, Ms. JH paid for her share too. Hence, it's RM315 per night. I'm sure it's cheaper during off-peak season.
Having read a bit about the food in Genting, we went for our breakfast at The Bakery. Initially, we wanted to have some Dim Sum @ Restoran Good Friends (yah yah I know... what a name) but it was too crowded. Our queue number was 58 when they are seating number 40!

Mushroom Quiche: So-So
Turkey Ham Quiche: Yummy
Butter Croissant: No idea as I didn't try it. Ms. JH told me later that it's crispy and nice.
If only they heated it up before serving
Carrot Cake: Alright. I've had better donkey years ago
This one, I don't remember what it is. It's pre-prepared.
I like the filling but not the bread.
Another one we bought. It has salmon.
I like the bread but not the filling.
I find them stingy on the filling for this one.
Cuppucino for Ms. JH's parents. Looked nice.
They said it's not bad. They're easy-going people. Not fussy at all.
This cost RM100 plus. I wonder if I remember correctly. All I can say that for a breakfast, this ain't that bad after all. Even if it really cost RM100, I would go back again and again.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of Day 1!
