Back To Basics @ Adeline's Rest House

On the 1st of October, we went to a place called Adeline's Rest House. That place is rocking kool I tell ya! Ya know, cold water, out houses, sleep on the bamboo floor, lots of bugs, leeches, snakes & all that's not so jazzy? It's actually quite deep in a secondary jungle. Adeline, the owner of Adeline's Rest House allows doggies to stay there. We went along with our friends & stayed there overnight. Here, let me show you some pictures & why I say that place is the sooperest dooperest! You dogs WILL want to go there. Trust me...

Here we are Adeline's!

We stayed at that long cottage also known as long house. We were put far away from the other people so we had lots of privacy. And lookie lookie what we've got!

A big pond just outside our cottage! Now, you water lover dogs, this is something you will not be able to resist. The moment we reached to our cottage, the first thing we did was jump in. Whee!

Well actually the water was pretty muddy & dirty with full of fishes swimming in it but who gives a POOP!

This place is full of lushy green land! It's like a mega huge toilet for us. We can shapeepee anywhere at anytime. Hee!

Our feeties could touch the bottom of the pond so me & Chloe played bitey face in it. As usual I always win the game but Chloe was smart this time. She tried to drown me by holding my head under the water & not letting go after that. Crazee woman!

So I got her back nicely!

Chloe pooping in the distance. How rude of Mommy to take a picture of her while she's doing her business.

Faith surveying her precious land...

There are a few activities that you can do at Adeline's place. There's what you call paintball shooting which I think is some mindless game that the hoomans play. Why not use real bullets? Makes more sense right? BOL!!! Then there's also jungle trekking which we went immediately after we arrived. There's some water sports which the hoomans can play at the river & night safari which we missed out. Would have been fun...

The jungle trekking was lotsa fun for us (our hoomans almost dieded-hopeless!) We doggies were the ones who were doing most of the work of pulling our hoomans up the steep hill. It was kinda treturous but fun. Oh & Chloe donated some more blood to the leeches. Haha! Faith & I did not get any but our hoomans did. Their blood must be tasty...

It was an hour up the hill & an hour down the hill. You can see how much I enjoyed it.

My Hooman M did not bring along enuf water for the trek so we were dying of thirst for more than one hour! Later, as we were going down, there was a stream of fresh spring water! It was deeleecious & refreshing. We just jumped in straight, wet our whole body & drank gallons of it!

This feels sooo freakin' good!

Now, let's play ball!

Okay, satisfied! Now, let's get the heck out of here.

After we got out from the jungle, we found a river. You can see how impatient I was. Very impatient! I was thinking of leaping from where I was to get into the water. Hee!

Yay! Finally reached!

Throw the ball woman!

In the middle of playing, my ball drifted away & I thought I saw it over there where I circled in the picture. So while all the hoomans were having fun & chit chatting away, I decided to be a brave nut to go check it that area out. To my Mommy's horror, I got sucked in the strong undercurrent & struggled to get back up but couldn't. My hoomans were screaming for me to get out & they were not fast enuf to come to my rescue as the grounds were very rocky & the water prevented them from coming fast. Luckily the jungle trekking guide quickly rushed & pulled me out. Woah man. I think I almost killed myself. But you know what? If I could do it again, I think I will.

Adeline prepares meals about 4 times a day whch includes, breakfast, lunch, dinner & supper. Here's us during din din time. It was BBQ night! Adeline cooks her own food & her food is fantabulously deeleecious! No restaurant can beat her home-cook taste. She harvests her own fishes from the river, grows her own petai (Malaysian beans aka smelly beans aka stinkified green lumps) & durians (another stinky Malaysian fruit) & she makes her own jungle recipies.

Check out the food! Do I see chicken wings there?

The three stooges begging...

Chloe got lots of attention as usual. Almost everybody who saw us were able to name our breeds correctly. The 1st words to come out of their mouths were, "Oh, Golden Retriever! Oh Dalmatian!" which was pretty amazing coz people usually get it wrong. I get Labrador alot or Rabador... Except the last couple who saw us on the last day we were there, the lady pointed to Chloe & said, "Look! A Persian!" That cracked me up!

This is the dining area. Oh yah, then there's this lady who was staying there who I think is a normal visitor who said who doesn't like dogs. She told her friends which my Hooman M overheard that my sista Faith bit her in the leg. That is so bonkers!!! None of us will ever bite anybody infact most of the time she's cautious of people & will not approach strangers until she's very, very, very, very sure but that usually takes say about 5 days? That lady was the only one so far who didn't like any of us.Whatever!

Then it was back to the cottage. Time to sneep! At night is freezing cold like the air-conditioner & that's the way I like it!

The next morning, we had Malaysian breakfast which was called Nasi Lemak (Oily rice aka Coconut Milk Rice). We just hung around some campus students.

While my Mommy was tucking into her breakfast, I snuck out behind her to check out that very tempting, inviting, absolutely irresistible stream flowing beside the dining area. Someone in the restaurant shouted out, "Hey! What is that do doing there?" That guy doesn't know that I AM Amber the Water Bamber. Whatever that means!

Here I am looking up at my Mommy from the stream. I checked out the entire length up & down much to the amusement of spectators above me. Whee!

Oh look! More water! This is called a Water Heaven but the hoomans call it a S.P.A. Huh?

Wohoho... Freezing! Very good for my loose skin. My Mommy says it's great for a face lift.

Later Chloe joined in. Me, Amber the Water Bamber & Chloe the Water Boey! Hey, it matches! We didn't enjoy it much tho as the water was blasting out from every corner & poking us all over the place. Kinda annoying so we didn't stay in there very long.

After we had our lunch, we bathed, packed up & were ready to leave but before we did, we had a group picture together - my friends Nancy & Ruby. The hoomans, well I'm not sure of their names. Hehe! We sure are gonna miss this pawsome place! But we'll be back soon. Mark my words, we'll be back.

Daisy said...

My goodness! What an adventure you had! I'm glad the guide saved you in the river. That jungle trek looked like terrific fun. I wish I had been there with you to swim in the streams and play with you, Chloe and Faith.

Moco said...

What a wonderful vacation spot. We are so glad you did not get carried away down stream. What in the Sam Hill is wrong with that hooman who thought Faith bit her? It was probably some gi-huge insect. Hoomans can be weirder than weird.

Amber said...

Hi Amber mae! Whoa, I love all the places your hoomans brought you. i can't wait to go to ruby resort that you went last time! I would want to go to the beach. Another great place xD what a nice greeny cozy place. i would like to have a dip in the spa too

Mango said...

Amber-Mae, I don't know what to make of your great adventure. That jungle would totally freak my mom out with all the leaches and buggies.

I was soooo scared about the part where you got caught in the water. What a relief that you got out OK. The spa would certainly be nice to enjoy.


Rudy said...

Ohhh wow that looks like so much fun! Doggie heaven! I'm not sure Mom would like the leech part of it but you all looked happy. I hope you get to go back there someday!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

That looks like such a cool vacation place. Kind of like camping (bugs and leeches and snakes and sleep on the floor) and kind of NOT like camping ... although the water spa made H-Mom laugh! All the hoses hooked up were pretty funny. Why didn't your humans jump in too?

CoCo said...

You guys have waaayyy toooo much fun! You guys are sooo lucky to have humans that like to take you to fun places like that! And oh my...look at all that yummy food!

Fred said...

You always have the greatest adventures! Glad you made it home safely!

Muttallica said...

Dear Amber, we love the pictures from your adventure. thanks for stoping by our blog. We'd love to be friends with you. You and I, the Roscoe doggie have at least two things in common: heavy coats and tropical climate. My people keep my hair very short, so I don't get too hot. DO you like to roll in mud during the rainy season. That is one of my favorite tings in the whole world.

Hana said...

Wow, looks like you had tons of fun at Adeline's Rest House! That was scary reading about how you got sweep in the undercurrent.... glad you are okay! I think I would enjoyed the rest house, but my Mom needs a nice clean environment... so I guess that wouldn't work for us.

You asked about the ribbon necklaces. Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you. There is LOTS going on here lately so it has been busy. You can see a close up photo of the necklace my Mom made, the one I was wearing in the photo. Click here and scroll down to "Polka Dot Power". My Mom will check on shipping costs and let you know.

That must have been a super-dooper holiday! I am jealous.
I would have been terrified if I were your mom when you were pulled down the river - thank goodness the guide saved you.
