Genting's Halloween Horror Spirits 2 Starts Today!

Officially started last Saturday on the 19th of October which was somewhat like a warm up. Today, 24th of October will be the starts of 4 consecutive days of Genting's Halloween Horror Spirits 2 which will ends on the 27th. I happened to be able to go for the warm up on 19th, which is last Saturday.

Two years ago I went to Hong Kong for the Halloween themed night entry of Ocean Park and Disneyland HK. Which was quite an experience. This year, I didn't get a chance to go overseas so I went up to Genting Highland to try out their Halloween Horror Spirits 2.

Let the journey begin.

Traveling to the entrance of the attraction alone is quite eery because we have to go through some dark alley.

Haunted Playground

An abandoned playground with spirits wandering there. Take a picture with the spirits, if you dare.

I wondered what will happened if I don't stay away from the swing.

Scary Rating: 1/5

First World Hotel

Scary Rating: 5/5

Just kidding. =P

Old Shanghai

Chinese themed spirits haunt this place.

Do you dare to buy dim sum from him?

I'll say, she's pretty scary.

Scary Rating: 1/5

Prison Freak

Passing through Old Shanghai, one will find Prison Freak. One of the two horror houses that is available. Pretty much you'll be going through a prison that has not so friendly people lockup in there. Please don't freakout if you find some of them not properly locked. Muahahaha.

Here, we are only allowed in group by group. So, some waiting is needed.

Scary Rating: 2/5

City of Walker

You can skipped Prison Freak and go on to the City of Walker. This place is crowded with zombies.

Some freak accident happened?

Meet the walkers.

There will be dance performance too every half-an-hour. If you are lucky, you might be able to catch the zombies attacking the police.

Scary Rating: 2/5

Ghost Village (猛鬼村)

After coming in from Haunted Playground, you'll see this sign. Turn left to Old Shanghai and turn right to Ghost Village. We turned left to Old Shanghai first, hence we need to go all the way to the other side to go to Ghost Village.

I was a bit disappointed with Ghost Village. Is that it?

Scary Rating: 0/5

Kisah Rumah Puaka

After passing through Ghost Village, we've came to our final haunting. Kisah Rumah Puaka. This is of course Malay themed horror house.

In here you'll find Hantu Bungkus. Was there a Pontianak too? Just be careful of the bomoh there!

Scary Rating: 2.5/5

P.S. I am basically quite immune to the haunted houses, so the scary rating I put here is for those brave people, add 1 or 2 more points to the rating if you are a timid person :p

GAB Oktoberfest Malaysia Is Back!

Yes. Time flies. It's already October and it could only mean one thing. Time to party with beers! It's the time to celebrate Oktoberfest in Malaysia! What is Oktoberfest, you ask? It initially started as wedding celebration in 1810 to commemorate the union between Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen at Theresienwiese (translated as Therese's meadow / field) – it is for this reason that Oktoberfest is referred to by Germans as ‘die Wiesn’ or ‘the field’. Since it started in German, then it is better to celebrate with a German beer like Paulaner. Oh, there is a special edition 1 liter Ceramic Oktoberfest Mug.

Do you know that Paulaner was first brewed by monks from the Paulaner monastery in 1634 making it almost 380 years old – however it is still the “youngest” of the Oktoberfest Beers. Oh, Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier is not a wheat beer but instead a lager and it's a little bit stronger (6% alcohol) than the non-Oktoberfest Paulaner variant.

As with last year's Oktoberfest, GAB will be organizing themed parties across the country. If you want to grab the special edition 1 liter Ceramic Oktoberfest Mug then you must like the Oktoberfest Malaysia Facebook Page, to find out more about the locations of the GAB Oktoberfest Malaysia parties.

It's time to celebrate Oktoberfest 2013 during this month of October and it's more fun doing it with a mug or two of Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier and remember to drink sensibly. Now, let me go and have a mug first. :P
