Had to Cancel Genting Highlands Trip

We are now in KL and need to meet up with a potential client on Sunday evening. So what do we do in between as today is Saturday? Go to Genting Highlands, of course! But my friend has slight fever and needs to rest. So we decided to cancel the Genting trip. Besides, we are going to Genting over Christmas which is the super peak season and far more expensive. For your information, Genting Hotel is now undergoing renovation and will take some time before completion. So, for today, we need to rest in our rented apartment in Subang Jaya before going back to Penang on Monday and work again.
