The heart-pounding rides at Skytropolis offered a thrilling respite, making us feel like daredevils soaring through the skies. We went on the Super Glider twice as we couldn’t get enough of it after the first ride. The exhilaration of twirling, spinning, and looping sent our hearts racing and smiles beaming.

The private dining room at The Olive

With the sun gracefully bidding farewell, we decided to relish a gastronomic delight at The Olive which is now a Muslim-friendly culinary haven for modern Malaysian cuisine. Located in the Genting Grand Hotel, this establishment offers a delightful array of authentic Malaysian dishes that celebrate the country’s rich culinary traditions. From the savory Gear Box Soup to the crispy Popiah Makanan Laut and refreshing Kerabu Nangka Salad, every bite is a burst of flavor.

The menu at The Olive features highlights like the succulent Ikan Cod Kukus, simmered in a zesty lime sauce, and the flavorful Gulai Ayam Kampung Nangka, where braised free-range chicken meets creamy coconut curry. For seafood lovers, the Assam Sotong delivers a delightful combination of wok-fried baby squid with a medley of spices. Accompanied by Nasi Bunga Telang, the visually stunning blue rice colored by pea flowers, each dish is a feast for both the eyes and the palate.
Kek Keju Nangka
We couldn’t resist indulging in the Kek Keju Nangka, a heavenly baked cheesecake with the enticing flavors of jackfruit, bringing a perfect end to our dining experience at The Olive.
With a seating capacity of 85, The Olive Genting Highlands provides a welcoming atmosphere for guests to embark on a culinary adventure. Operating from 5.00 pm to 11.00 pm, it’s the perfect destination for an evening dining experience.

As bedtime approached, we retired to our cozy hotel room, replaying the day’s adventures in our minds and ready for the next.

As the sun ascended on the second day of our wondrous escapade, we headed to the Malaysian Food Street – a true celebration of authentic hawker fare from various corners of the country. Bringing together 14 established hawkers from Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, the culinary paradise of Penang, the historical charm of Melaka, the tantalizing offerings of Ipoh, and the gastronomic delights of Kuching, the Malaysian Food Street spared no effort in offering a diverse and mouthwatering experience to its patrons. It was as if the entire country’s culinary heritage had been condensed into this one vibrant space.

The Hainanese Chicken Rice was a revelation, tender chicken perched atop fragrant rice, exuding a heavenly aroma. A harmonious symphony of flavors and textures, this delectable masterpiece left an indelible mark on our taste buds. The accompanying trio of sauces – tangy chili, piquant ginger, and savory dark soy – elevated the dish to new heights, offering a delightful play of tastes.

Penang Char Koay Teow took me on a flavor-packed journey, the wok masterfully orchestrating the ingredients into a stir-fried symphony that danced on my palate. This stir-fried delight is a harmonious marriage of flat rice noodles, plump bean sprouts, chives, and delectable Chinese sausage, all wok-tossed to perfection in a tantalizing blend of soy sauce, chili paste, and fragrant spices.

The Malaysian Food Street didn’t stop at just these offerings; it beckoned me to explore further. I found myself drawn to the renowned Klang Bak Kut Teh, a herbal soup brimming with succulent pork ribs that warmed my soul.

Koon Kee Wan Tan Mee, where springy egg noodles are elegantly dressed in a luscious dark sauce, bringing forth a symphony of umami flavors. On a separate bowl of soup are plump wantan dumplings, each one concealing a treasure trove of minced pork and prawns. The dish is garnished with fresh leafy vegetables & Sweet Char Siew, adding a refreshing crunch to the medley of tastes and textures.

From 8am – 9pm, the Malaysian Food Street welcomed diners, and on Thursdays to Saturdays and the eve of public holidays, 8am – 11pm.

Our first stop after breakfast was to Genting SkyWorlds (GSW). Stepping through its doors, we were instantly whisked away into a world of enchanting wonders and endless delight.

We transformed into fearless explorers, navigating uncharted realms, heroic champions saving the day, and dreamers immersed in captivating tales. Every ride and show left us in awe, making us eager to experience the magic all over again.
