RWGenting YNOT Graffiti Art Finale

We were up in Genting last weekend for the YNOT Graffiti Art Finale. Resort World Genting is very kind to provide accommodation, meals and transportation for us bloggers. We did not follow their bus though and drove up ourselves as we planned to stay back late on Sunday.

Genting First World Hotel Room

We were given a room in First World Hotel and to my surprise, it is quite spacious. I stayed in First World decades ago and as I remembered, I had to ‘kiss the wall’ to move about in the room but this time, I can dance my way to and fro! I guess they’ve refurbished and that teeny weeny room that I stayed ages ago is no more? The washroom is also quite spacious. No more cramped feelings. I won’t mind staying in First World Hotel again now. 

We feasted like VIPs during our stay in Genting. From the lavish lunch in Happy Valley Seafood Restaurant to some hardcore Tom Yam Kung dinner in the best buffet spread you can ever get in Genting at Coffee Terrace to the BEST teh tarik at Resort Cafe, we ate and ate and ate some more that more than half of my pictures taken over the weekend were of FOOD! LoL!

They have a wide spread of Thai dishes in Coffee Terrace to celebrate the Water Festival aka Songkran over the weekend.

I’m not a fan of tea but this really lift me up that I just can’t have enough of it!

Okay, I think I better stop writing about the food and get back to the main reason we were up in Genting – YNOT Graffiti Finale.

The entire Genting Outdoor Theme Park has been transformed into a HUGE canvas for graffiti artists to ‘express’ themselves. 

Genting YNOT Graffiti Finale

Ethan was introduced to the art of graffiti for the very first time that weekend. He even had some hands-on experience expressing himself through spray painting. The very first image he painted was a yellow smiley with bleeding black eyes! Well, the eye was not intentionally made to bleed :P It was his first time handling a spray can and he sprayed too much.

His next ‘art’ is his own name – ETHAN. He sprayed his own name without any help from me nor Darling. Not bad, not bad at all! 

Graffiti artist at work

We saw many graffiti artists at work.

We saw those graffiti artists working on this corner until it was completed the day after. Themed CONCRETE JUNGLE, this is one awesome masterpiece!

Of course, there is that cute Genting mascots.

And also my favourite  as I grew up in that era. Yep, now you know that I’m ancient. Museum worthy…

BMX Showcase

The public were also treated to some heart stopping BMX stunts during the two day event.

We were also treated to some ultra cool popping dance moves by Elecoldxhot & Fix. I managed  to catch all THREE of their performances. I love them that much!

The different looks of Elecoldxhot & Fix:

Day 1 – Night

They started their first set dancing with LED lights on their suit!

I thought I’m so over Gangnam dance but when I see them performing it, it was done so perfectly and full of energy that Ethan was dancing in his stroller eventhough it was late at night and he was extremely tired!

Day 2 – Morning

Elecoldxhot & Fix

During the first set on Day 2, they gave us some kickass KungFu fighting moves.

Day 2 – Evening

In the evening during their very last set, they looked super sleek in their suit. Even Darling was smitten! LoL!

I cried a little as I watched their final set for this event. They had the biggest crowd ever during this final set and the crowd kept cheering for them to go on and on but alas, all good things must come to an end :(

That’s the end of my coverage for the Genting YNOT Graffiti event but that’s not the end of our purpose in Genting as we still have that Songkran festival to celebrate. We wanna get WET! But that will have to wait as I need to dry my pictures first :P

Till then, go get yourself a cup of coffee and come back here in a while. Let’s get wet together! :)

    Henry,

    You might not be able to appreciate their artwork until you try graffitying yourself, then you’ll appreciate the ‘freedom of expression’ it gives you. We were all given the freedom to express ourselves on the wall and it was FUN! Nobody to tell you what is RIGHT and what is WRONG. For that we are really thankful to RWGenting for organizing.

    Not everyday we can spray paint walls! :P

    It was surely a great outing for your family, Cynthia and Breanna.

    I stayed in First World Hotel Tower 2 recently, I was surprised that the room is clean and spacious.
