MAHA Expo 2008

Hi everyone!

As it turns out, there's so many juicy stuff to post about in Mom's trip to this MAHA thingy (It stands for Malaysian Agriculture, Horticulture and Agrotourism), so I'm going to divide it into a few posts. o.O" Yes, freaky I know! But then, from what Mom told sounded like such a cool event! Wish I was there! (I'll let you know why I can't go further down).

So, here's the lowdown on her trip. After my obedience class ended, my instructor told Mom that there's an obedience trial going on at the MAHA expo! Naturally, Mom was psyched coz she hasn't been to an obedience trial and she wanted to see how other doggies do in obedience trials, AND possibly pick up some tips on how to train moi in the future...*rolls eyes*

She said she couldn't bring me to the trials because:

  • It's probably not dog-friendly (due to the fact that Malaysia is a multi-racial and multi-cultural country, the major race is not dog-friendly). *pouts* I SOOO protested on this. How can an obedience trial that feature DOGS not be DOG-FRIENDLY????!! Such a ridiculous notion, and I made myself clear to Mom.
  • The place is HUGE and probably involves lots of walking (which I don't mind!) but then it's back to the previous point of it not being dog-friendly and all...bleh!

And so...she left me and Kenji all alone at home while she hops off in the car to the Expo. But then, when she came back...she got tons of photos to show!

This is how long the queue was to get on the tram thingers that take people around (Mom was told that the place was like, 170 hectares wide so transport is crucial). You probably can't see the whole queue, but it spanned all the way to the bus at the front, and wayyyy back from Mom's camera...eep!

One of the many many trams that took people around...

Due to boredom of waiting, look at what silly Mom took a photo of...her tram wristband. *rolls eyes*

Ooh...this photo is of DURIAN TREES!! Mom took this when she was on the tram.
Remember my durian post? Well, Mom says those trees are where we got them durians from! Yumm....*licks lips*

Ah hah...another reason why there's so many people coming to this Expo! More on that later...*wink*

After Mom got down from the tram, she headed straight for the obedience trials area. But not before snapping some interesting photos of the other animals on display (I STILL can't believe it's not dog-friendly! I mean, there's SOOO many animals there! What's a dog going to do? *pouts*) Here is a photo of some cows for auction...

Shy duckies! =P Mom says they are delicious...o.O I wonder if I can get a taste of them in the near future..

Goatsies! Yet another delicious feast...*wink*

Here's a photo of a uhh...sheep? Mom says it's a local one. I thought sheep are white? And have fluffy wool?

Up close and personal with them horns...eep! They look dangerous!

Wow! They've got rabbits too! And they look so similar to the rabbits we got at home! Hee...

This one is just. plain. weird....why is the man all painted and stuff? I can never understand humans. And the snake is errm....yellow.

Mom says these are camels. They walk around the desert and never go thirsty for a long time. That's amazing, innit?

Ooh...they got elephants there too! Mom says that people could go on rides on the elephants for a small fee...I wonder where they go to on these rides.

Look! Horses are here too! Mom liked the shiny coat on this horsie...but to her horror, she heard someone saying that they can be eaten too! O.O" He said that they even taste better than beef...eep!

They even got ponies too! This one is tame enough for Mom to touch...she says they have lovely eyes!

Well, that's about it for now. I don't want to overload this post with too many pictures! Next up, I'll post about the obedience trials! Mom says she met someone special there! Too bad I wasn't present as well...*sigh*

Faith & I were there on Saturday! We had to do the Agility demonstration. We were under the MKA Demo team. My hoomans were very disappointed by the whole thing becoz 1st, it was bloordy hot like crazy! 2nd,m there were too many Malays. Big problem! 3rd, it's the worst place to ever hold a demo or a trial, period!!! My Mommy especially was sooo pissed on that day that she didn't have any mood to go for the trial the next day which was on Sunday so only my Hooman M & Faith went. But the end result on that day, Faith did pretty badly & so did the others. It was too hot & hardly anyone was watching! But the things my Mommy enjoyed was riding on the Elephant, playing with the bunnies & feeding the horsies with carrots.

Scottie -

NOOO we LOVE horses!!

We heard that some people eat them, but we don't like that fact *sigh*

That fish bus is the coolest thing ever!

And sister keeps her wrist bands too. *eye rolls* hoomans.

Those goats seem pretty cool! i want to meet a goat.

mom ALWAYS makes duck for christmas. Its the best ever! You have to get some!

Thats a creepy sheep- and an even creepier man. Well, thats not fair, the sheep isn't creepy, the horns are!

Can we ride the elephants?

Such great pictures!
