Last Day in Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spa.. Heading to Awana Genting Highlands

by - Saturday, October 08, 2011

Thursday was the last day for all of us to stay in Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spa. All of us have been told that we were gonna stay in the jungle. It means that we’re gonna move from luxury/comfortable bed into not-so-comfortable bed. There's a lot of things that comes into mind. Is there water heater? How can I charge my camera? Is it safe?

I went down to Bila-Bila Cafe to grab my breakfast. Since my stomach was not feeling well since last night, I grabbed some light breakfast. I chose Japanese food and surprisingly it turned out good. The Japanese rice was just great, smooth and not too sticky. Served with special omelette where I ask the waitress to add on beef bacon. Everything was just good accompanied with miso soup.

Since I was still hungry, I added on a little bit more.. Cereal + sausage + omelette + bacon. Life is just great. Having my breakfast by the swimming pool while smelling the sea breeze. The breakfast was just great especially when I can have unlimited yogurt!

Right after all of us had our breakfast, we went back to our room to pack our stuff. All of the bloggers were to gather at the lobby 11.30am. Unfortunately, I reached there at 12.30pm because I went to the toilet for a few times and once I reached to the lobby, everyone has already left. All of them went to the seafood restaurant outside the resort.

It was painful to say goodbye especially when all the MSS 2011 had a lot of nice experience and we need to let go our comfortable room especially our bed... Since I was not feeling well, Dian force me to drink black tea while everyone have their coconut drink.

The MSS 2011 bloggers reach Awana Genting roughly around 4pm due to heavy traffic jam and rain. On behalf of MSS 2011 bloggers and organizer, I would like to apologize for the delay.

The moment all of us reach there, we were not only greeted by their warm hospitality but we also managed to get refreshments too. It is really great to have refreshments after being stuck in the bus for almost 1 hour. Thanks to Awana staff who prepared it for all of us.

When talking about Awana Genting Highland, their specialty is nature. MSS 2011 bloggers were greeted by an evergreen landscape and refreshingly cool mountain air. Not only that, all of us was surrounded by 130 million year-old rainforest at 3,000 feet above sea level.

I did not have a chance to visit their Orchid Farm, Strawberry Farm and Mushroom Farm. My next visit, I’m gonna visit all of that farm! Not only that, if you ever want to drop by Awana Genting, do not forget to enjoy the bird watching or firefly sighting. This time, all of the MSS 2011 bloggers, we had the chance to experience the outdoor activities and eco adventures. Stay tune in my next blog post ya.
