Went to Chin Swee Caves Temple to see those giant lantern in conjunction of the Mooncake Festival. Actually there are free shuttle buses from Genting Highlands Hotel every hour leaving for the temple but due to the landslide in Genting the service was suspended hence we have to take the Awana Cable cars to go to the temple @RM 3 per person per trip.








Short notes:The best thing is we used our accumulated points collected during our hotel stay at Genting and the points we collected while playing on those 1 cent slot machine to exchange for mooncakes. 12 genting points for 2 Genting mooncakes. I got 6 mooncakes of which 2 are low sugar single yolk mooncake!!

I was in Putrajaya on the first day of Raya. Thanks to my husband niece who drove us around Putrajaya to see how my tax $$ was used by the government.




Then being Najib 's open house at Seri Perdana that day, we drop in at Seri Perdana to join the crowd.

I have been hearing and reading a lot about Berjaya Hill, hence after a long planning of 3 months I finally reached Colmar Tropicale of Berjaya Hill.

Okay.. how to go to Berjaya Hill? Catch their shuttle van service from Berjaya Times Square @ RM 25 per way per person. 2 trips a day: 9.30 am and 2 pm daily. I chose the 2.30 pm trip cos the food up in the hill is expensive so I might as well eat my lunch at Berjaya Times Square food court before my trip.


For dinner I brought along my own bread toaster and bread and cooked chicken bought from Cold Storage supermarket @Berjaya Times Square.
Check in was a mess. We waited for 2 hours and finally get to check in at 5pm . hence I negotiate with the check in counter to let us check out an hour later the next day to make up our lost time...which they agree to.

Our 2 room suite:
Booked through Berjaya website at RM 330 per night.A bit run down but for a night stay it is still alright.






Around Colmar Tropicale:






Next morning we used the free shuttle service to visit the Japanese garden and the Botanical Garden which is nearby each other.










We also took advantage of the free shuttle to the rabbit farm but since it is so hot and there are not many rabbits to see we did not enter the farm.
