I like this spacious restaurant to dine with my family members and friends.
If you love buffet spread, you'll like to dine in Coffee Terrace because you can have plenty of choice in food namely flavors of Malaysia with Chinese food and Western food to choose from.
Desserts you'll be spoil with many choices,
who doesn't like desserts that you can choose,
pudding, cakes, ice cream, ice kacang.
What kind of food hunter are you? If you are hungry and there's choice of buffet spread. Would aim for the main course of the desserts first?
There is no right or wrong, everyone has their way of having their meal.
Some people like to have their fruits first then only go for the main course.
Now look out for below yummylicious ice cream with pancake at side if you like to add it on.
Maybe you'll like to get starts with Flavors of Malaysia then to Western and Chinese food.
There are an array of colorful pastries, candies & sweets, such as
miniature pastries, assorted cakes, jellies and pudding,

After a heavy meal, we have a next event to go that's to visit the Chin Swee Caves Temple.
Chin Swee Caves Temple is located 4,600 feet above sea level and at the most scenic site of Genting Highlands, the Chin Swee Caves Temple is the perfect getaway for those who would like to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Good place to enjoy the view and can take lots of pictures there.
A Taoist Temple, the Chin Swee Caves Temple is situated on a 28-acre plot of rocky forested land donated by Genting Group founder, the late Tan Sri Dato' Seri Lim Goh Tong.
The Chin Swee Caves Temple was officially opened in 1994 after 20 years of continous development by the then Minister of Transport, Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik.
Among some of the attractions you can find at the Chin Swee Caves Temple include the newly-built observation square called the Sky Terrace.
Spanning across 35,000 square feet, the Sky Terrace was built for guests to take a leisurely walk among the 'clouds in heaven'.
A large statue of the late Tan Sri Dato' Seri Lim Goh Tong, erected in honor of his dedication to the Chin Swee Caves Temple, stands tall in the vicinity of the Sky Terrace.
Just a few feet from the entrance, one could not miss the iconic 9-storey Pagoda,
which is decorated with hundreds of Buddha figurines.
Inside the Pagoda, you can find 10,000 blessing lamps installed for devotees of the Temple to dedicate to those that they would like to be blessed by Buddha.
This usually done once a year or twice a year, depend on individual.
Right at the entrance, you'll find the beautifully craved Nine-Colour Dragon Wall of Luck greets you to the Chin Swee Caves Temple
It's bonding time for mother and son.
Behind them is the large statue of Kuan-Yin.
Within the vicinity, the large statues of Buddha and Kuan-Yin stand tall behind five-storey Temple.
Besides praying to both Buddha and Kuan-Yin, devotees can also pray to a black seated statue of Reverend Master Chin Swee, which is found inside the Temple.
What are the kids looking at?
This is the Happy Heart Pond, my son and his friend looking at.
Chin Swee Caves Temple is one of the most popular tourist attraction,
it is educational Journey to Enlightenment that depicts the Ten Chambers of Hell.
How people end up in Hell?
Everything happen with a reason, it's interest and you can know it all from there.
What the Chinese beliefs is that the soul of a dead person would be sent to the First Chamber of Hell and his past deeds would be screened by Chin-Kwong-Wang, the King of the First Chamber,
who decide whether or not and where he should receive punishment.
A good soul would be sent for rebirth in the Heavenly Realm and an evil soul would be sent to one of the remaining nine chambers of Hell, each empowered to impose various degrees of punishment.
It's interesting and education for everyone to know, each Chamber has story to tell.
For example the Eight Chamber,
Du Shi Wang of the Eight Chamber is the controller or the Intense Heating Hell.
The Hell is located beneath the Wuo Jia Stone under the great ocean.
Those who did not practice filial piety,
caused fear, panic, sadness or worry to their parents and in laws,
will be punish here after death.
At the entrance to enter the hall of International Genting Showroom, we didn't know that he's one of the guest magician. He's holding a magic ball in hand.
