A delegation of children and their guardians from Kuala Lumpur’s Rumah Titian Kaseh, a home for underprivileged kids, were treated to a day out at Resorts World Genting (RWG) to personally experience the hill resort’s latest attractions.
After a scenic trip up Gunung Ulu Kali, the 58 children and 10 adults were greeted at the iconic entrance of Genting Grand Hotel by the warm and smiling Resorts World Genting team. This trip was particularly thrilling for the children, as it was their first visit to the resort.
In Malaysia, friendships are forged over food and the first stop for the children was at Coffee Terrace for a buffet lunch. The kids were amazed at the vast selection, chatting animatedly as they tucked in the delicious food.
Fuelled up at Coffee Terrace, the fun-filled day was then ready to begin! “There’s just so much food to try, I don’t even know which one I want to start with!” said five-year-old Atikah Zubaidi.
After lunch, their first stop was to the soaring atrium at SkyAvenue where the children were awestruck by the high ceilings and visual displays.
They were then even more wow-ed when their hero, Batman, emerged onto the screens for the special The Call Is Out SkySymphony show that celebrates 80 years of the Caped Crusader and erupted in applause when the show ended with the Batmobile emerging from the stage.
From superheroes to super fun, the next stop was the bright lights and exciting rides of Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park.
With two full hours to explore the carnival-inspired space and a free pass to jump onto fantastical rides like the Ride ‘Em Round carousel, Boo Boo Bump bumper cars, the Copper Express vintage train and frantic Loop De Loop around the Genting Tower, it was a truly memorable experience in an amazing setting.
After all that adrenaline rush, the children then got to experience something special – a European winter. Clad in jackets and gloves, the young guests of the resort got to frolic in the snow at Snow World, enjoying winter activities such as building snowmen and tobogganing.
To wrap up the indelible outing, the children received a goodie bag each containing Faber-Castell stationery set plus snacks such as Twisties, Cheezels and assorted candies. At the same time, the orphanage received a gift hamper of rice, cooking oil, Milo, Maggi instant noodles, dry bihun and biscuits to take home, along with a little bit of the Genting hospitality.
“It is always a pleasure to welcome children here,” said Katherine Chew, Vice President of Resorts Communication and Public Relations. “At Resorts World Genting, our attractions are for everyone and we pride ourselves on offering them to Malaysians from all walks of life. It’s been a wonderful day, and I hope the kids from Rumah Titian Kaseh have enjoyed it as much as we have.”
