Let it snow, let it snow!

I'm sure most of us wish to experience snow at least once in our life, especially when we are staying in a country that only has one season whole year round. I wonder how does it feel to wake up and realize that it's snowing outside? I would definitely run out of the house and lie happily in the snow, not to forget making ☃ snowman and have a snowball fight, how FUN!

Guess what, you can now have all these fun experiences in Genting's Snowworld! Yes, without the need of flying out of the country :D Two weeks back, I had the opportunity to attend the official launch of SnowWorld with a bunch of fellow bloggers and experience snow myself.
Weather looking rather chilly that day 
After an hour of bus ride, we are finally here! ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ 

Welcome to SnowWorld at Resorts World Genting; the coolest place to be. Having closed for nearly 8 months, the brand new SnowWorld soft opened on 31st August 2012. After opening for nearly 5 months, SnowWorld was officially opened on the 23rd January 2013. 

Before entering SnowWorld, you'll first have to go to the dress up corner to get your snow gears; winter jacket, boots, and gloves. The winter jackets are available in size M,X, L, XL. It's advisable to bring your own socks to keep your feet warm.

There are lockers available too to keep your belongings, it is not encouraged to bring in your cameras and cellphones as they might not be able to sustain the high temperature. If you insist to bring it in, well it's on your own risk then. 

The counter to collect your boots and gloves. 

I was blown away by the beautiful scene upon entering, felt like you're at the other side of the world. It was freezing cold inside, -6°C to be exact. Now I feel the pain of those complaining how cold winter is.   
I was still shivering despite wearing a thick turtleneck sweater and heat tech pants inside the winter jacket.  

The best panoramic view of SnowWorld.
Most photos are taken with Joeann's S3 and we had to take out our gloves to take photos. 

The new SnowWorld offers a completely new enchanted attraction that houses fantasies and wonders on a fairlyland that epic traditional Europoean street scenes (on the left of the photo). There's an English Tea shop, a French Bakery, an Italian Pizzeria as well as shops displaying Spanish red wine,  Dutch clogs and Swiss chocolates to take you to an European experience. 

My inner child was brimming in glee when I saw that it was snowing, die die also must have those snow on my hair :P 
Before the launch, we were first entertained by these energetic young dancers dancing to K-pop songs.  

Then, SnowWorld is officially launched by YB Dato Kevin Sim, Executive Vice President of Genting Malaysia Berhad with the management team by lighting up the 8ft SnowWorld ice sculpture logo with crystal lights *applause*

Special appearance by Astro celebrity, Jentzen (middle) and he was also the MC of the event.

After the launch, we were brought to the Lover Cave for some refreshment where finger food, coffee, mocktail flavoured popsicles were served.
Later on, we decided to explore around and take photos since we have some time to kill before lunch.

The view from above. For something slightly adventurous, one can take a spin on the Cresta Run Slide and slide down from the top of the hill.  

There are four new never seen before attractions to spice up your visit to the new SnowWorld which are namely the Winter Downtown plus World Heritage Concept, LED Light Animation Scheme, The Lookout Point and the Warm House. 

Of course I didn't miss the chance of making my very own angel wings *inserts halo above* 
 Me and my angel wings (*≧▽≦)

Take a stroll down the streets of snowy downtown and be amazed quaint and scenic streetscape. 

It was definitely a cool experience and we sure had fun taking photo and being mesmerized by the spectacular view in the cold  It was too cold too handle or else we would have a snowball fight with each other. So what are you waiting for? Head up to Genting and have some fun at this snowy wonderland, be it with your friends or family.
