Behind The Scene Tour- Resort World Genting

Written by: Little A

After the Ice Age Adventure, our mission is the Behind The Scene Tour.

In the Visitor’s Galleria we were told the history of how Genting was built. This tour may be boring to some, but it is very educational. :) We were also shown Genting future plan, the Fox World theme Park.

After the little educational visit, we were brought to the Genting International Showroom where we were briefed on how things works behind the stage during concerts or shows in Genting International Showroom.

My friends and I get to have fun on stageda complete with lighting and music before proceeding to our next stop; the educational visit to First World Hotel Laundry division

First World Hotel Laundry

During our visit to the First World Hotel laundry Division, we were given a glimpse on how laundry are done every day. Wow. It is really not easy!

We were shown an A-Z process of laundry in First World Hotel, from collection of dirty linens to washing, drying up, pressing and distributing it back to hotel rooms for your usage.

MIGF 2014

 photo MediaLaunch_Alex_MIGF2014_MG_8530_zpsdzdr8qii.jpg

The spectacular preview event for the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival, TasteMIGF 2014, will take place from the 26th to 28th of September 2014 at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre.

For one fabulous gastronomic weekend, food lovers can get a tasting preview of the Festival by partaking in a Super Gourmet Safari exchanging Gourmet Dollars for bite sized samples from all the Festival restaurants as they gather in one specially created location – The Theatre of Cuisines.They can also shop at the Epicure Gourmet Village and attend Master Chefs’ cooking classes and enjoy wine appreciation talks and other culinary happenings.

A new inclusion this year is the LuxuryPlus Showcase which will display high end properties and investment opportunities among others and provide those present with the opportunity to hear from the industry’s best.

Go on a Super Gourmet Safari at the Theatre of Cuisines
In the specially created “Theatre of Cuisines”, where the Festival restaurants are showcased, visitors can buy “Gourmet Dollars” and enjoy a “Super Gourmet Safari” sampling creations from Malaysia’s leading chefs as they serve up tasting portions from their Festival Menus. These special portions are big enough to exhibit the creativity of the Festival chefs but small enough to allow tasting as many dishes from as many restaurants as possible. Live music and cooking demonstrations take place, providing a fiesta-like atmosphere for all visitors.

The Theatre of Cuisines will open to the public for a fabulous gourmet weekend from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.

To go on your Super Gourmet Safari, you will need Gourmet Dollars that have been created with the benefit of diners in mind. They help to minimise queues and delays for people waiting for their change. Gourmet Dollars will be available for purchase on the day of the event itself; however, you can avoid valuable time on that day and enjoy a 5% discount if you pre-purchase Gourmet Dollars at www.tastemigf.com.

Epicure International Gourmet Village
TasteMIGF will also feature an “Epicure International Gourmet Village”, situated right next to the Theatre of Cuisines. Here, more than 80 purveyors of the finest gourmet food, wines, cigars, and much more, offer their wares in a festive, bazaar-like atmosphere.
The Epicure International Gourmet Village will open to the public from 11.00am to 4.00pm on Friday 26th September and again from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.

This is this also unique opportunity to get to know the Festival Master Chefs as they share their culinary secrets. There will also be wine appreciation, mixology classes and many other activities throughout the 2-day weekend.

Cooking Classes and Workshops will be conducted on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September from 1pm until 8.30pm.

A new inclusion to TasteMIGF this year and located on the same floor as the Epicure Lifestyle Workshops, is the LuxuryPlus Showcase & Workshops where all things luxurious will be on display including high end properties, investment opportunities and much more. The workshops will feature talks and invaluable advice by industry experts.

The LuxuryPlus Showcase will open to the public from 11.00am to 4.00pm on Friday 26th September and again from 11.00am to 10.00pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September.
Workshops are available on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of September from 1pm to 8.30pm.

So mark the 26th – 28th September 2014 in your diaries, foosies.
