A Freezing Night Out At Genting Highlands

Last Sunday night, we went for a trip to Genting Highlands with our friends. It was my first time being up there & oh my gosh! It's was freakin COLD! And thank god, my mommy brought us our jackets! Hehehehe...Because Genting is situated in a hill, up up high in the mountains! The road going to Genting was very steep & windy. My mommy & I had to sit in friend's hooman's car coz our lousy car could not take out weight & if we were siting in that car, our car would have reversed all the way down the hill & back home. It's that dangerous, I'm telling you all...

Anyway, we reached to a chinese restaurant to have our din dins. Not ours actually, the hooman's din dins. Hmmpppff! It took about an hour to reach the restaurant & we were only half way up the hill. We haven't reached to the tip of Genting yet! Hold on, hold on, we did go but let me finish this chinese restaurant part first...

Here's the chinese restaurant. It was already quite cold here so mommy put on our jackets & each of us have different colored jackets, check them out!
Here's Chloe's blue jacket...

Here's Faith's pink jacket...Suits her doesn't it?

This is mine! Orange colored jacket...Do I look good in it? Unfortunately, it's a wee bit tight for me. Can't zip up all the way, blame my mommy's lousy sewing skills!

Look, what my mommy got to eat! See that prawn? I wanna have it!

Oh yeah baby! Come to me prawny...But guess what I have to do to get that yummy prawn?

You've guessed it right!
Poor Chloe wanted the prawn too but too bad, there was only one in my mommy's bowl. So mommy just gave her some plain rice...She liked it!

What about Faith? She just got a rawhide shoe which I stole it after she abandoned it...Teeheehee!

After din dins, we all performed tricks! Not only us two, but my friends too...

Designer dogs, Ginger & Scruffy had to do it too! Hahaha, look at Ginger's face, forced to stay still...

Shy girl Venus did it too! What's up with this trick huh? It seems like almost all of us can do it...

Then we had a group picture together! Wait, how many of us were there? 1, 2, 3, 4...Wow! Nine of us! Cool...

Then we said our good-byes to everyone who worked at the restaurant...We'll never forget you all! We'll be back soon...! Next, we headed higher up to a place where we all doggies can run free & play! Weeeeeee!

And no, we haven't reached totally up the hill yet but quite close to the tip of Genting...This is place called the 'car park' where we all got to run wild! Woohoo! It was already very cold up here compared earlier on at the restaurant. Time to fetch tennis balls!
Look at me! I was soooooooo excited when I got out of the car. You know, we've been running & running for about half an hour & I wasn't panting that much & still could go on for more! I think it must have been the weather maybe...It was nice & cold. I wish we could have our training there instead of the place we always have our training, it's sooo bloody hawt!

Oh yeah, can you hear my mommy & my hoomans shouting Faith's name? Yeah, she loves to explore on her own & just below the carpark is the main road & there's been some drifting going on(you know like Tokoyo Drift? Watched that dumb film before?) just higher up the hill & they were all very scared that she might be too confident & go out to the road or fall off the pitch black cliffs. She's like that so in the end, she was leashed up after that...You should see how sad she was after that. Heeheehee...

After that, we headed all the way up for some hot chocolate at Starbucks Cafe. But look what mommy & I saw when we reached there. Wooooh, it's soooo scawie. We're soooo high up & below is like a black hole & sooo misty too. Look up there! There are cable cars too but too bad, we doggies are not allowed to ride them. It was closed anyway...

Then we walked up the steep walkway & there we are! We reached the top of the hill! And we reached Starbucks Cafe too. Woohoo! I was sooo happy coz up here was freezing & my mommy at some point turned into a popsicle until her arms were crooked & frozen. I warmed her up with my warm body & then she melted back into normal again...She's got sooo much insulin like Chloe, I wonder why it didn't help, lol!

Mommy was having some hot chocolate drink to warm her up but unfortunayely, I didn't get any coz it was chocolate. So she just gave some doggie biscuits but as usual, I had to do this 1st...

Here are our Schnauzer friends, Miyoki & Venus...

I wonder what they were starring at coz they haven't been moving a muscle for some time now...

Well whatever they are looking at, I'm just gonna snooze under my mommy's legs for warmth...

Poor Faith was shivering really bad on the freezing tiled floor eventho she was already wearing her thick pink jacket. So my hooman picked her up & put on Chloe's jacket on her too for double warmness. Oh & taht's Faith's head in the jacket's sleeve...So funny! But luckily she didn't get sick after that coz she usually does when she's cold, she will have to go to the clinic immediately. But she's fine today...

Later we drove all the way down hill & all the way back home. While driving downhill, we can smell burnt tire coz the window was open & cars are not meant to be driving like that & braking all the time, my mommy told me coz it can spoil the car but luckily, our car lasted the whole way up & back home. And guess what time we reached home? We reached home close to 4am. I was totally pooped out & just knocked out straight away!

Phew! what a great time we had!

I loved the picture of all of you doggies....that was so so so cool.

But we are glad youlooked after her.

I received an email from Jennifer at Dogs n Us Community inviting me to join their community. They had already added my blog, without asking, without my approval. I see that your blog is also listed on this site. I am sking you to email them at jennifer@dogsnus.com and tell them to remove your blog from their site. This is a blatant rip off of our Dogs With Blogs Community and I for one do not appreciate it.

Simba said...

Putting one treat on your nose was mean, but three?! Luckily my nose is too short for that.

fee said...

did you go play with the jackpot machines? i think they should invent one that dispenses treats!

ToFFee said...

sound sooo great so far!

lucky you got some shrimps.. good thing my nose is a bit short so can't do the balance thingy but I'm seeing mom's eyes glinting meaning she plans on something horrendous...

so all bundled up and warm now?

Can't wait to read your post when you're on top of the mountain!

Wuffs!

River said...

What a fantastically brilliant outing that looks like - you all looked so classy in your coats - HM can't believe your mum actually made them herself - they look so professional!!

And how cool to go out to dinner with 9 doggies - you are sooooo lucky!!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Amber,
That was a very cool trip you went on. Did we see piles of snow in the parking lot?? Wow, no wonder all of you got so cold. Wish we had places to eat that doggies can go. The picture of all of you doggies is so nice. Since those 2 little dogs weren't moving, did you check to see if they were frozen stiff?? hehehehehe! Too bad the cable cars weren't running. Mama said that would be an awesome site riding on those. We're glad the cars held up. Mama told us that driving them in the mountains is very hard on them. Hope you get to take more trips like that.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
PS when you go to the beach in 2 weeks, be sure to take lots of towels so your Mama can wrap you up after coming out of the water. You will get cold. Be sure to check your eyes & ears for sand & things, and check your toes & pads to make sure there are no cuts.

Spencer said...

Hi Amber, That is such a great adventure! I like your jackets. I would have a purple one is it ever got cold enough to wear one here but it never does. That's so great you can go into the restuarant. We're only allowed on the patios.

Balboa & Mommy said...

It's so nice to see so many humans and doggies so happy togetehr.

Man, everytime I see you, you're forced to have food on your nose, you should make your mommy do that too!!!!!! hee hee

Natasha Fernz said...

Hey Amber,

Am green with envy that you got to go for such a cool break with Chloe & Faith and everyone else.

My mommy has been wanting to take me to Genting or Frasers, but I get car sick so bad, that we've not been able to do that. On our last trip to Cherating, I vomitted like 6 times!!! I felt terrible, though I thought it was worth it once we arrived there.

Keep up the fab stories!

Hugs
Cleo

Amber said...

Hey Amber-mae, so cool that u get to go to Genting Highland. Whoa, 4am?! Should stay there one night. The hotels don't allowed dogs right? So fun la, going with a group of doggies friends. I love cold places, hope i get a chance to go Genting too =3

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Amber,
Your trip was really fun...I mean so many doggies driving up (okay so you didn't do the actual driving la) hehe...

Tadpole said...

HOLY COW! You guys are SO lucky! What an AWESOME trip!

I'm glad Faith didn't find the drifters... that sounds scary! And she didn't even get sick from the cold - what a great night!

You guys so do look rad in your jackets! :-)

Boo Boo said...

i have never been to Genting ! The cloest I get to that coldness is maybe to put my head into the fridge :P

wally said...

Whoa! That looks like fun. It's so cool there are so many places you and your friends can go.

wally.

Wow the trip sounded so fun and cold.. Poor Faith.. she looked so cold. Too bad we can't go there, we need a passport 1st to get into Malaysia!

PerfectTosca said...

Drool...sputter...prawns!

I could eat them biscuits right off your nose!

Huskee Boy said...

WOW... you went to Genting? The furtherest I went was to HEAR my pawrents TALK about it!! *#!#^&*

Hui Min said...

wow amber that was so much fun!!! i think the travelling is just as fun as reaching there. but i'm curious. did you just drive up and immediately drive back down? :p hee hee

how come all of you can do the nose trick and i can't? is it because i don't have enough nose?

faith looks so cute in that sleeve hee hee like a posh lady going shopping in a head scarf!!

i think your mummy is awesome to sew jackets for you guys. and with zips!! i can't even get HM to repair my Moosie's exploded eye.

love..
