Right ! I went to Genting Highland !
To some people, going to Genting Highland is to gamble ! Yep ! There are casinos, jackpots...& what-have-yous, gambling-wise on Genting Highland !
Genting Highland is also a theme park...Funny, only non-Muslims can enter the gambling areas but for us Muslims, we can have jolly fun at the theme park...

I went there with 2 of my friends. We didn't go there to gamble but because these 2 guys were scratching their heads as to why I had been to some nice places in Europe but never in my own country !
So, I took them there !
They had been here before, they knew all the merry-go-rounds, roller-coasters in the theme park !

So, for me going there was to take photos ! My cheap conventional camera (didn't even knew digital cameras exist then...); Liked the area, I should come here again.
Without these 2 friends of course because I had to treat them all the times !
They even said if I didn't bring enough money then we could sneek into the casinos & win bucketloads of money !
Rascals they we are, we knew the backdoors to enter the casinos anyway but we spent one whole day cruising the theme park instead !
We took the roller-coaster rides many times, we had sore bum !
