Genting Trip - Day 1

Entry: 79
9th April 2007

Dear Diary,

Darling brought me up to Genting Highlands for a little vacation. An escape from the real city to the city of entertainment :p For our dinner that night, we decided to dine at Hainan Kitchen as darling wanted to have their Lamb Shank which he told me was very good.

Hainan Kitchen is located at First World Plaza, on Level 2. You wont fail to notice it if you happen to be heading towards the casinos.

I ordered a Chocolate Milkshake (RM7.20) for myself while darling had a Coke (RM5.00).

Darling was so disappointed when he was told that the Lamb Shank was sold out for the day. And to think we chose to eat here again was because of that :( Never mind dear, we'll try it another time :) Anyway, darling then opt for their Pork Escalope "Mandarin" (RM15.00) which he said was rather good too. Well, I dont know what escalope means or which part of the pig it came from, but this pork escalope came engulfed in a very sour BBQ sauce with fries and sauteed vege served along. The meat was nice, but darling and I found the sauce a tad too sour for our liking. Darling said that it didnt use to be like this before. Hmm... did they accidentally spilled vinegar in? :p

This place is actually famous for its Hainanese Chicken Rice (RM10.50). I had this for my dinner. You have a choice between steam or roast chicken in which I opt for roast chicken since I had already tried the steam chicken version. It was served along with flavoured fragrant rice, soup, chilli and ginger sauce. Apart from the miserable portion of roast chicken they gave me, it was quite nice and very well presented :)

We had already decided to have our handpacked Baskin Robbins ice-cream up here since we missed last month's 31st promotion in which I was awfully disappointed. Well, darling more than made it up to me *grin*. We had a quart but it was too bad they didnt serve our favourite Chocolate Mousse Royal flavour. We had to replace it with their Chocolate flavour and also chosed Gold Medal Ribbon and Strawberry Cheesecake as our two other flavours. Goody!!!

Yeah, we were dipping and dripping alritey... :p

Irresistible ice-cream.... :) Strawberry cheesecake was kind of like my first-love flavour when I was first introduced to Baskin Robbins. The same goes for Haagen Dazs except that Baskin Robbins doesnt melt so quickly. The both of us devoured the whole quart and were too full to move after that, that we fell asleep. Hahahahaha!!!! Too high on ice-cream to stay awake :p

Well, we managed to get up without a Baskin Robbins hangover, and were surprised to find that we had only been knocked-out for half and hour or so :p We then went to Starbucks in First World Plaza for a drink and ordered their Signature Hot Chocolate. It's simply lovely to slurp something so wonderfully hot and deliciously chocolatey in the cold climate of Genting.

Genting Trip - Day 2 coming right up :)
