Alright, I shall continue from where I left off about my Awana Genting Trip with Nuffnang.
The 2nd day of our trip went by pretty slowly. After waking up, I went for a quick shower and just when I had shampoo and soap all over my head and body, I discovered a leech that was crawling rather slowly on the wall.

And darn, the leech can really extend itself.

After the quick shower, I went to pack my bag and headed over to Pasir Ikan Bakar to have a hearty breakfast with the rest of the Nuffies.

The breakfast was a rather hearty affair because of the huge variety of food choices that we could choose from!

There was Porridge,

Noodles, Eggs, Sausages, French Toasts,

Cereals,

The last segment of the day was a simple telematch consisting of 5 challenges.

The 1st challenge was this…

I believe almost everyone would have played this in school camps before and well, even though it looks easy, tight coordination and speed are required to win the game! [photo courtesy of Nuffnang]

Alas, our team came in 3rd place! 😛 [Photo courtesy of Nuffnang]

The 2nd challenge was to have two balloons placed under our armpits and one balloon placed in between our legs, and we had to dash from one point to the other with the balloons. Again, this wasn’t that easy but it sure was fun because we looked extremely funny when dashing from one point to another with the balloons awkwardly placed! I looked kinda stupid trying to retrieve the balloon that dropped while I was dashing over to the other point. [Photo courtesy of Nuffnang]

The 3rd challenge was pretty straightforward. We had to form the longest line using only the items we have on our body. So, I guess there’s no need for a photo for that. 😛

The 4th challenge was to dash to the balloon, turn 5 rounds around it, grab the rubber bands using only the straw, and then dash back to the starting point. I think my team did pretty well for this one. [Photos courtesy of Nuffnang]

Last but not the least, we were required to perform a team cheer that lasted for 30 seconds and well, it was an overall good team effort because everyone gave their best shot for the final challenge! [Photo courtesy of Nuffnang]

The prizes were generously sponsored by Resorts World Genting and as for my team, we won a 2D1N Stay at First World Hotel! 🙂

It was overall a rather fruitful and rewarding trip to Awana Genting. I really would miss the beautiful greenery and cool weather over there. In fact, this trip to Awana Genting  has allowed me to make new friends in the Blogosphere, but more than just that, it has also given me one of the rarest opportunity to experience the more adventurous side of Genting. I am really indeed thankful to Nuffnang for selecting me to go on this trip, so kudos to Nuffnang and Awana Genting! & also not forgetting Zul and the rest of the team that made this trip possible for all of us![Photo courtesy of Nuffnang]

God Bless!

It’s 4 more days to the supposedly “End of The World” [EOTW], 8 more days to Christmas, 15 days to the New Year, and 16 days to my 1st day of work in the new year. On a side note, our current giveaway of a bottle of Moscato D’Asti by G.D. Vajra, Italy is ending in 3 days time and we’re happy to announce that Jason Koh is currently in the lead for the giveaway. +Claps Claps+.
I [Melvin] just came back from a really tiring but fruitful sponsored trip with the Nuffies at Awana Genting and I will be blogging about it soon; so do keep a lookout for that blog entry because you will discover another different side of Genting apart from the usual casino, food, and accommodation!

Anyways, we’re not sure if anyone remembered about the Gold Kili & Frezfruta Challenge that we previously embarked on but if you don’t know, worry not because you can check out our Blog entry about it via the following link: http://awinsomelife.org/2012/11/15/lion-citys-bloggers-challenge-medzs-millenia-walk/

Since the Bloggers’ Challenge has officially ended, Lion City Distributions hosted an appreciation dinner at J.K Don Cafe & Bar for all the Bloggers whom were involved and it was a fabulous evening indeed.

J.K Don currently has two outlets in Singapore, one at Shaw Tower and the other one at Telok Kurau. Both their outlets serve Japanese and Korean cuisine.

J.K Don Cafe & Bar at Telok Kurau has a cosy alfresco dining area where you can just chill and catch up with your colleagues/friends over some drinks and snacks. They even screen live soccer matches too!

If you’re not into soccer, you can also have some fun with the in-house board games that J.K Don Cafe & Bar provides.

and the Grand Winner of the Bloggers’ Challenge is none other than Celestial Delish! +Claps Claps+. The gentleman whom presented the prize was the owner of Sin Sin [remember the Sin Sin Kaya that comes in a metal tin that we always eat for breakfast?]

The dinner ended with a blast and we really want to thank Lion City Distributions for the fantastic dinner that we had and the kind invitation to participate in their Blogger’s Challenge. Celestial Delish really deserves the grand prize because she came out with quite a number of recipes using Gold Kili‘s Coffee and Frezfruta Jams as ingredients!
