Kuala Lumpur Travel Diary 2015: Wonderland Valley and French Village

After a few hours exploring the colourfully wacky Genting Highlands (blog post here), our driver took us down the mountainside and to an out of the way restaurant called Wonderland Valley. The scenery was so beautiful, with lots of lush greenery <3

Take a look! 

Such a pretty location! 
Where we sat - right next to a stream
Tranquil and pretty scenery
The bridge is wide enough for cars to travel across
An aquarium and koi fish pond
Cute stray kitty 
Fresh passionfruit juice - the juice itself is not very sweet, but the seeds pack a lot of punch as they are sour!
The tofu is so darn good in Malaysia I swear! No matter where I ate tofu, it was always delicious

After lunch we continued onto a French style village nearby. There were quite a lot of different attractions in that area, including Japanese botanical gardens, and a rabbit farm, but we only had time to visit the French Village. 

Here are the pics I took ^^

Mini-castle *o*
Pretty water feature with lush greenery
Entrance of the French Village
One very colourful horsey...
Ta-da, a French style village~
Love that shade of blue on that building
Pretty, pretty buildings
It looks so quaint and sweet
A wishing well
Just when you begin to think you're not in Malaysia, you see this mountainous scenery! 
So much pretty greenery - it's a nice place to relax
It was nice to just to walk and explore
Time to leave...

And that was how I spent one day of my two week holiday in Malaysia ^^

Kuala Lumpur Travel Diary 2015: Genting Highlands

Hi Lovelies! Sorry I've been MIA - I got back from KL a week ago, but it's taken this long to prepare a blog post (guess I was still in holiday mode) T.T 

Anyways, this was my first trip back to KL (my mum's hometown) in 12 years *o*

It was really hot and humid, but the food was amazing and the shopping endless, lol. 

There will be more Malaysia related posts to come, but for now please enjoy the pictures I took when I went to Genting Highlands. 

Genting Highlands is about an hour's drive out of KL, up in the mountainside, and it's like a resort/theme park? There is an outdoors theme park which is under construction for another year yet, as well as an indoors theme park.

Beautiful lanterns and fairy lights display in the First World Resort foyer/entrance
Genting Highlands is popular with both young and old~
Hello Mr Superman ^^
All the interesting sights are found when you look up!
Lots of interesting eateries at Genting Highlands...
We went and rode on one of those cart things! There's lots of different styles to choose from - some with flashing lights :P
So many little details to look at - such as those gargoyle statues...
Little Big Ben? It's the entrance for Snowworld, and the casino is right next door. This casino is Malaysia's one and only legal casino *0* 
The Chinese New Year lanterns look so pretty strung up like this
Reminds me of Venice/gondola rides...or an imitation of Vegas' imitation of Venice :P
Sugarcane drink at one of the good! 

Gentings seemed a bit dated to me - there aren't many attractions for older people (asides from some shopping), but I guess since the outdoors park is under renovations it's less fun since that's where all the more thrilling rides are? 

We didn't stay long - went into the haunted mansion, rode one of the cable cart things, did a little bit of window shopping (I bought two hand mirrors), and then we were off to have lunch elsewhere, as well as visiting a French style village nearby. But I'll save the pics for the next photodiary post ^^

Thanks for reading!
