Viper Challenge at Gloria Residences Ion Delemen Genting Highlands

Hi everyone !!! Long time did not update my post coz' I am very busy with my school works and exams. Since my exam just over, I will update my experience when I attended the Viper Challenge last weekend at Gloria Residences Ion Delemen Genting Highlands.
I am a teenager now. Yeah !!!
We check-in on Friday evening and check-out on Sunday afternoon. We had a 3-bedroom services residences at Gloria Residences. This is my first time been to this hotel and the hotel is quite new. Just 1 year plus. 

Our unit is quite spacious and clean. I can run around playing with my siblings and at night, we have a comfortable bed to sleep on. Since my eldest Sis is not around, I share the 2 single bed with my youngest brother.
Me and my Little Brother's room
WH and WT's room
My parents' room
After we check-in to our hotel, we walk around to visit some of the facilities available at the hotel. Me and my brothers like their heated indoor swimming pool where we could swim and play water without worrying about the cooling atmosphere out there.
Indoor heated swimming pool with Jacuzzi and Kid's Pool
Times to do some exerise at the Fitness Gym
We went to the Fitness Gym and Kids' Club. We played for almost 1 hour at the Kids' Club where we could climb, slide down, jumping at the trampoline, playing at the softballs area and watching cartoons. Fun right ? You can go there to play anytime you want coz' it is open 24 hours daily but need to get the key to access at the lobby counter. All these facilities are FREE for all the in-house guests. Even their hourly shuttle bus to Sky Avenue is free too.
Even though I am a teenager now, I still can become kids and enjoy my childhood playtime at the Kids' Club. Ha ha ha !!!
My 3 naughty brothers at Sky Avenue. Ha ha ha !!!
On Saturday morning, me and my family joined the launched of the Viper Challenge: King of the Mountain. Just the launch and not the challenge ya. Ha ha ha !!!
About 20,000 participants joined the challenge on Saturday and Sunday. There are 12 obstacles in 7km that all the participants have to complete but luckily the weather is cooling. Seems like everyone had enjoyed the challenge so much.
Everyone looks so excited with full energy to start the challenge
The food at Gloria Residences and G-Luxe are quite delicious. I enjoyed eating their breakfast which is complimentary for the hotel guests. Some of the food is cook on the spot to ensure we will have fresh and hot piping food serve to us. 
As for lunch and dinner, we have buffet lunch and ala-carte dishes for our dinner at Kembali Kitchen. I like their salted egg squid and herbal chicken soup for my dinner and for the lunch, I like their desserts, cheese macaroni and bbq fish.
Our tea time is at Fairy Tales Cafe. The garden looks beautiful for photo opportunity and a relax place for us to enjoy sweet and savoury pastries and a cup of hot tea. Beautiful flowers surrounded the garden.
Me and my happy family !!!
If you come to Genting Highlands, remember to book your stay at Gloria Residences Ion Delemen. It is a great place to stay and a good place to be !!! That's all from me and hope you will enjoy the stay as much as I do. See you !!!

SWISS DREAM CIRCUS WITH THE FIRST EVER KNIFE-THROWING AND FIRE DIABOLO SHOW IN MALAYSIA

Last Thursday, I went to Swiss Dream Circus at Desa Parkcity with my family and it’s been five years since Swiss Dream Circus set up their Big Top tent here in Kuala Lumpur and every year their show just keeps getting better and better. They are back once again this year for their fourth season with a 90-minute show featuring the styles of a spine-tingling knife throwing act and a fire diabolo performance, two acts that have yet to be seen on our shores. 

““One of the main attractions of our show every year, is that every act is different. Each year we have a different theme for the show and we curate and produce the acts in its fashion,” shares Ismail Stork, CEO of Le Tresor Legacy Ventures, the main organizer of Swiss Dream Circus, “This year we have an award-winning diabolo virtuoso duo, who will definitely amaze you with their fire diabolo act. It is completely magical when the burning diabolo flies high in the circus dome.”
Flames & Co – the award-winning virtuoso diabolo act from France
A diabolo is a juggling or circus prop consisting of an axle and two cups (hourglass/egg timer shaped) or discs derived from the Chinese yo-yo. This object is spun using a string attached to two hand sticks ("batons" or "wands"). A dexterity mastered by both Jean and his wife, Morgan.
Russian knife-throwing couple, Igor and Tatiana will take your breath away 
Another act that’s sure to keep you strapped tight to the edge of your seat is their Russian knifethrowing act. Real life couple Tatiana & Igor like to do dangerous things together and knife-throwing is their specialty. Knife throwing is one of the oldest disciplines in circus which requires great precision and concentration and it’s no easy feat for Igorto hurl knives at his wife while she rotates on a wooden platform – a life-size prop which was built from scratch right here in Malaysia.
 
Other highlights include the mesmerizing performances of Romanian aerial strap act Duo Romance, Venezuelan cradle act Isabela and Ernesto, gravity-defying stunts by Cirque du Soleil alumnae Trio Naumov and side-splitting antics from Clown Tirro, to name a few, all helmed by ringmaster and founder, Marco Baumgartner. 

This year’s show is an artistic spectacle that allows you to dream and be enchanted as you immerse yourself in a world full of EMOTIONS. If there is an emotion to be experience, you will find it under Swiss Dream Circus’ Big Top.

Catch Swiss Dream Circus 2018 at Desa Park City (opposite Plaza Arkadia) until September 9th, 2018. Tickets are priced from RM39 - RM199 and can be purchased at www.swissdreamcircus.com or at the venue.
