Travel Around Europe in Resorts World Genting

Dreamed of traveling around Europe but don’t exactly have the time or budget to fly over? Worry not. Resorts World Genting is bringing Europe to you and you can experience how it is like to travel to some countries in Europe without even stepping out of Malaysia.

 photo received_bWVzc2FnZV9ibG9iX2F0dGFjaG1lbnQ6MTM1Mjk2MDQ4MTQxMDk5MA_zpssm5ylqia.jpeg

A visit to SnowWorld at Resorts World Genting means you will bring home rib-tickling memories thanks to the arrival of some new attractions.

 photo received_bWVzc2FnZV9ibG9iX2F0dGFjaG1lbnQ6MTM1Mjk2MDI0MTQxMTAxNA_zpske8ugbh3.jpeg

A new attraction that awaits visitors is the Excitement European Facade. Like the theme suggests, SnowWorld has been transformed to look like a European village—with replicas of various European symbols creating a believable imaginary world.

 photo received_bWVzc2FnZV9ibG9iX2F0dGFjaG1lbnQ6MTM1Mjk2MDkxODA3NzYxMw_zpsry8jhlbw.jpeg

You can make-believe you are touring Europe as you take in the sights and sounds at the various “countries” created, namely Holland, Italy, Norway, England, France, Spain, Germany and Switzerland.

 photo received_bWVzc2FnZV9ibG9iX2F0dGFjaG1lbnQ6MTM1Mjk2MDY0NDc0NDMwNw_zpsr6lfgwtw.jpeg

Experience what being in a German Boucherie with 3D sausage and 3D cow is like  or take a picture in front of the facade bearing the image of a windmill with the 3D Holland Clog aside. 

Apatt from the European village facade, SnowWorld is offering to take you time traveling back to the fantastic madieval times in the form of 3D trick art—fanciful comical props with hilarious names like King’s Feast, Falling Chandelier, Distorted Knight, Snow Monster, and Dragon Prop. Yes, SnowWorld has adopted a medieval theme and there are many exciting photography backdrops and 3D props, making each visit a delightful one for visitors. They can take pictures of themselves as part of someone’s food at the King’s Feast, or appear to be stuck in a black castiron cauldron, the unfortunate victim of a trio of witches at the Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble segment. And what about taking a picture of a chandelier falling on you? This can be realised at the Falling Chandelier section that gives the illusion of, well, a chandelier falling on you! The young and young-at-heart who simply love taking selfies would no doubt also be delighted to take a picture with the Snow Monster—they are seemingly enveloped in a blue fog that is the monster’s breath. Yet another funny backdrop worth capturing in print is the Knight on Horse where you can make-believe you are a warrior when you stick your head through a hole that is the missing head of a knight.

The tour itself can be considered educational—Geography lessons for the kids—or the guest may simply look upon it as a picture-worthy session filled with heartwarming moments.  SnowWorld has revised its ticket prices and the new rates are RM38.30 for adults and teenagers (RM34.50 for Genting Rewards Card or GRC members) and RM32.50 for children and senior citizens (RM29.20 for GRC members). There is also Family Package priced at RM129.10.  For more information, please call 03-27181118 or log on to www.rwgenting.com.

Mamee Monster Biskidz, First-ever biscuit with DHA

Mamee has been as part of Malaysians’ childhood years and households for almost half a century. As the company continues to grow with Malaysians, Mamee understands that it is even more important to identify and evolve with its consumers’ needs. Focusing on two key elements of a child’s life – nutrition and play – Mamee officially launched Mamee Monster Biskidz, its first-ever biscuit with DHA.

 photo image006_zps2tukumia.jpg
 

“Children these days have so much going on, running from one activity to another and, they need to keep their hunger pangs at bay to keep them going; especially in between their activities, helping them focus on their activities. Research and science have shown that DHA is a key component that aids brain development, DHA is essential for a child’s brain growth. We are excited to launch this new product, which complements their learning and development while giving them a tasty and nutritious boost on-the-go,” said Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Pang Tee Chew, Group CEO, Mamee -Double Decker Sdn. Bhd.

 

The biscuits also contain added product benefits including nine vitamins; vitamin A, which is essential for functioning of the eyes, the family of B vitamins, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, that aid metabolism and energy production, Vitamin D that helps the body utilise calcium and phosphorous, Vitamin E that protects the fat in the body tissues from oxidation and calcium to aid in the development of strong bones and teeth.

 

“Education today has evolved and children must develop skills that will help them succeed and compete, be it in Malaysia or beyond. This led to the introduction of the Ministry of Education’s Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 that has a focus on development of higher-order thinking skills, the holistic development of children and improving cognitive skills which include problem solving, reasoning and creative thinking. Innovations like this complement children’s lifestyles as they go about their daily routine,” said Yang Berhormat Dato’ Seri Mahdzir Bin Khalid, Minister of Education, Malaysia.

 

“Our brand purpose is to inject fun in learning and children must develop skills that will help them become more well-rounded individuals, which is in line with the efforts of The Ministry of Education. At Mamee, we have always encouraged learning via fun activities through our various initiatives and school roadshows. We want to encourage children to unleash the power of imagination or what we at Mamee term “Kuasai Imameeginasi” with the ambition of inspiring young minds today for tomorrow,” said Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Pang Tee Chew.

 

The biscuits come in three flavours, developed based on what children enjoy – milk, which is key in their lives, chocolate a favourite treat and seaweed that adds a savoury element. The biscuits are also light and crispy in texture, making it easier for children to consume. There are four convenient pack sizes to choose from, catering to different consumption needs and occasions. Each biscuit is also embossed with the iconic Mamee Monster Biskidz mascot, adding a fun twist to the biscuits.

 

Mamee Monster Biskidz are now available nationwide in four different pack sizes with varied pricings as below:

·         Mini Pack sold at RM 0.50

·         Regular Pack at RM 1.00

·         Mid Pack at RM 3.90

·         Large Pack at RM 7.90
