Our arrival at Genting Highlands was delayed due to heavy rainfalls which immediately caused traffic jams throughout the whole ride. But we were welcomed by 'bunga manggar' and staff of Awana Genting.
We then were showed into a cafe where the officiating and introduction of Resort World Genting was done by Dato Anthony Yeo (SVP of PR Communications Genting Malaysia Berhad).

|The art of abseiling and maybe some room for romance? hehe|
Abseiling or Rappelling is the technique of descending through the use of a fixed rope. This is either done after a climb (going back to the base of the climb), in trying new climbing routes, or where there is difficult access (e.g. sea cliffs) to the start of the climb.Who would've thought that on our first day at Genting Highlands we were taught the descending climbing technique called abseiling? The plywood exit down the hill is only meant for beginners. But once in the real world of climbing, this technique will surely be handy and dangerous.
Always bear in mind that Abseiling is a very dangerous technique. There are so many things that can happen in doing this activity. This includes the occurrence of a jammed Climbing Rope, equipment failure, ropes cutting through sharp edges or rocks, and other incidents that are risky to the abseiler. Take note that any of these can happen even if you think you have done everything to ensure your safety. (source)
