Malaysia - Genting

Memories flooded back.
It was 1985, March 21.
That's the date printed on the photo. If the camera is set correctly.
I'm 9 years old.
My first trip oversea.
It was like a little family trip.
With my grandfather and cousins.
This trip is special to me because my grandfather was there.
He is someone I love and respected most in my life.
He passed away many years back and this is my first trip outside Singapore with him.
We travelled there by train.
I remembered me and my cousins found a lot of loose coins in an empty train seat, amounting to a few dollars.
It's been ages since I was there. The place is completely different now.
Very colourful and big hotel suituated there.
I like it because it's cold. I'm just like a Penguin.
Here are some photos I got on Genting Highlands.
I re-took these pictures using my digital camera as I still can't figure how to scan.
It's quicker this way, at least to me it is!

My Grandfather. He was a kind and humble man.

Paddling with all mighty strength to move the boat

We had our best of time riding those Bumper Cars. It was a big hit at that time.
We went for a few rounds but had to queue for a long time to get our turn.
Needless to say, we all went home with blue-blacks legs.
