Sorry for kept you guys waiting~ Hope you had a wonderful weekend =). Hmm I think I should continue my awesome trip to Genting. So here goes...where should I start ermmm OK!
After an overwhelming and heavy lunch I think it’s time for some walk. We thought why not visit the Strawberry farm since the Strawberry farm is a recent attraction in Gohtong Jaya. So we took a relaxing, scenic ride down to Gohtong Jaya on Skyway cable cars. The Awana and Genting Skyways provide breathtaking views of the surrounding hills at a comfortable speed that will get you down in no time at all.
Genting strawberry farm is 5 minutes drive from the Cable car station. It is a five-acre land that grows 100,000 juicy red strawberries. There are few key locations here, which are Strawberry Farm, Flower Farm, Organic Bean Sprout, Mushroom Farm and Strawberry Farmhouse Cafe. I can guarantee you this is a nice place for you to drop by because it is not just a strawberry park
Well, this is my first time riding in a cable car. I don’t even dare to look down...I just look straight the whole journey.
Some parts of the ride are SUPER high up from the woods.
Finally we are here!!!
waiting for our transport to strawberry farm...
Tadaa our transport has arrived! Super cute right =)
The Strawberry Leisure Farms is free entrance, you don't need to pay a single cent to visit this place.
They have super super lotsa isles!!!
One thing special about this farm is it allow self pick, which you can pick the strawberries direct from the strawberry's plant.
Look at these delicious looking strawberries~
Crime in action!
I asked Huai Bin to steal one for me too~ =)
The air here is extremely fresh, you will definitely feel refresh in your mind and body.
Strawberry Farmhouse Cafe, The cafe is spacious, even the tables and chair also decorated as strawberries, cool right.
The route was very well planned whereby you will have to walk every part of the farm before coming out the exit. There are a few shops selling souvenirs along the way~ This farm is highly recommended. We Had lotsa fun time at the Strawberry Farm. We wanted to visit the orchid farm but there's not enough time to do everything, cause we are running out of time for dinner.
Head back to the hotel for dinner at The Olive.
The Olive is Located at the Lobby Floor of Maxims Hotel, this restaurant exudes a modern, arty design with a casual, welcoming feel in its 'olive' colours and warm lighting. Offering Continental cuisine served in a trendy yet elegant ambience, the food features a myriad of textures, flavours and styles in a blend of classical recipes with contemporary ingredients and taste.
The dining area, which comfortably accommodates up to 75 diners, also commands an open view of the kitchen
Our menu for tonight is...
I love finger food!
Have you heard of squid ink bread? Sounds gross huh...but it taste good!!! I find the black bread enticing. The squid ink gives the bread a faint extra saltiness, but otherwise, it tastes very much like regular bread. As soon as I break apart the other bread roll I can smell the delicious savoury aroma of caramelised onion. The French butter makes eating these bread rolls feel wonderfully decadent.
