Bubbles and Bites | Resorts World Genting

If you are familiar with Genting's Pizza Factory, well, it's gone now. Replaced by this fancy place call Bubbles & Bites. Aren't the name adorable? However, it is creeply hard to pronounce. At one point, I called it Bumbles & Bite and sometimes I call it B&B or BB just because either I am unsure of the pronunciation or I'm just lazy.

It is opened for almost a week or so, I finally managed to get in and try the new restaurant in town (by town, I meant Genting). Due to it being new and fancy AND WE GET TO SIGN WITH OUR MEAL CARD, everyone wants to have their lunch there. Trust me, I've tried to get a place since forever but it is full house almost the whole week during lunch and dinner time.

It is apparently to be similar as the old Pizza Factory where they serve pizzas, spaghetti, burgers, salads and etc. Very western which is good as you can't really find much restaurants that sells pastas in Genting. 


Pricing wise, pretty decent for Genting price. I mean, you really can't compare with KL or anywhere else. Yes, just my lunch could cost about RM40+ if you choose to indulge in restaurants or cafe. Or else, staff can always opt of the good, cheaper canteen food. 

The interior has a few sections, Sofa, common chairs and 2nd floor! :D

What I love the most about this place is that it serves free water! Totally awesome to not have to pay extra for water. It serves in this beautiful letter-bottle (the kind where you see in movies people write sad love letters and let it float in the ocean) type bottle. :)

They serves a huge variety of champagne, wine, liquor, imported juice, imported water and etc.  

They would display some of the food that is served for the day. 




My friends order some old school spaghetti and it was nice to see they will grate cheese in front of you! :D



If you are wondering, they have some fancy name for this but they are basically just baby potatoes and cheese.



This was my lunch! Great fries and burger was good.


Food was average (so far), nothing particularly amazing or the best. Great service and Free Water! 

Life in Genting | Episode Four | CSR

I was lucky to have the opportunity to join the CSR team for a time of tuition teaching for the orphans at Batang Kali. It was one of those times where I am able to get out the office, I was happy and felt satisfied after even a short while teaching these kids. It was way better than having me staying in the office, in front of the computer and hitting on the keyboard. 


It was a rather nausea ride down and up that day, maybe cause I tend to feel that way when I travel in a van. I don't really get sick in a car or a bus. :) 












While working full time, I realized that I can not start my day with rice/noodles/heavy meal or I will get sleepy right after breakfast. Also, getting too full for lunch gets me in trouble of closing my eyes during the rest of the day. I can't focus and I just feel so emo when I am sleepy, not fun at all. One other thing that came to sense is that everything is really just in the mind, if you make yourself feel beaten by the day, you lose! So, I will have to tell myself that it will be great day and just by getting through today, you are one step closer to your holiday!

Life in Genting | Episode Three | Street Carnival

If I am not mistaken, Genting will have a Street Carnival annually for their employees. I think is a brilliant idea as some of us may have gotten rather bored of the canteens and food stalls. The best part was that if you register, you get yourself a RM10 voucher to spend in the carnival! That totally covers your dinner for the night. It was fun, it is a night market concept and some of the famous stalls such as Uncle Bob Fried Chicken and Fat Boy Lok-Lok and chicken wings and roti john can be found there!

It is a pretty big event, thus with the media and opening ceremony on the first night. They also invited cheerleaders and organized flash mob purely by Genting's own employees dancing!

If you want to know how many employee are there in Genting, yup, this is definitely the best time walk down that street and you will find it to be crazy pack!


Oh I forget that this year, we got free unlimited one day outdoor themepark pass! 

The coupons of RM10




By the way, they also had Laser Tag. Any employees can totally join in the last minute. Is a great way to meet friends from another department. 










For the entire 3 days, they had people dressing in their favorite movie character, walking about taking pictures or scaring ppl. 

Also, during the flash mob, we had our very own 'Michael Jackson' Blah, not interested. 

Our shopping paradise! Ok, not much but better than nothing.


AND FREE ARCADE GAMES!!!

Some people choose to play Cooking Mama on these machines. Lols

Lastly, one of my classmate from Uni came up to Genting for work. :) So happy to see familiar faces!
