Off to Awana Hotel, Genting HIghlands

Destination: Awana Hotel
Yet another meeting organized by my department, this time at Awana hotel, a subsidiary of Genting Resort located midway up Genting Highlands and fame for its golf course. It was held for 4 days and 3 nights from 29.9.2014-2.10.2014 so some heavy stuff was expected. Still, we had time to karaoke during the last night. Later, we were given a site visit and technical briefing on the construction of the 21st Century Fox theme park, the first outside USA scheduled to open in 2016. Food was delicious and the room very well provided and maintained. The Genting road is much wider than before and now has humps at all critical junctions. Going down the Genting road always gives me the creeps.
