Unscheduled Trip To Genting

It was an unplanned trip to Genting Highlands. I know there are many bloggers and write ups about going to Genting Highlands but every experience adds up new informations to the "entertainment in the sky and gambling city" of Malaysia. 

I left home at about 9.00 in the morning and took a LRT from Bukit Jalil Station to Titiwangsa. At the Pekeliling Bus Station nearby there is a bus service plying between the city and Genting. Its just a coach and not an express but it did not make stops along the way because most passengers are going to Genting.

I thought the bus will end the journey at Goh Tong Jaya and continue the journey on Genting Skyway cable car. however the bus ends at the First World Bus Terminal on top of Genting. The fare is just RM 5.90 for adult and RM 3.00 for children. 

It was a smooth journey along the way up until it reaches the First World Bus Terminal. It took about 1 1/2 hours considering the jam in the city.

I am not going to write what is up the Highlands because it will be common for other articles about it. 
Now the way down. 
It was quite a long queue for the Genting Skyway when visitors are leaving down for Goh Tong Jaya and continue home either by car, coach or any other options. 

The fare

At the bottom station (Goh Tong Jaya) there is a Express bus Go Genting serves to Puduraya, 1Utama and Kl Central and Kajang.

When I reached the bottom station, the tickets were sold out. However the personel at the counter told me to wait at the bus bay and if there are seats, I can pay to the attendant on duty. 
I was lucky because there still seats at RM 5.00 to Puduraya. I wonder why there are still seats when it was sold out and the fare is 40 cents more than sold at the counter. Anybody had any experience and is it legal to charge more than the normal fare?
