Cute Animals @ Pet World Malaysia 2017, Mid Valley Exhibition Center Kuala Lumpur

It was a long weekend thanks to the Nuzul Al-Quran holiday (good thing about living in Malaysia – you get holidays for everything. Chinese New Year, Muslim holidays, Wesak, Deepavali, Christmas, etc. :D). C asked if I wanted to go to the Pet World Malaysia 2017 happening at Mid Valley Exhibition Center in KL, and I didn’t have anything else to do in the afternoon so it was a yes. We brought her pet Chihuahua, Genie, along.  

Didn’t bring a carrier, so Genie sat on my lap throughout the drive. She was very quiet; probably wondering if it was a journey to the dreaded vet lol.

Returning for its 10th year, the event is touted as the ‘largest pet exhibition’ in the country and was held at MVEC, which had plenty of floor space. There was an entrance fee of RM5. Place was pretty packed out, but we saw lots of cuties!

Pet owners were having fun introducing their dogs to each other and making new friends. Not sure about how the dogs felt though.. it was crowded and noisy enough for me, a human, let alone a small doggo who has senses of smell and hearing much more acute than mine.

Booths sold mainly pet products such as pet shampoo, food, treats, leashes, carriers, etc.

One of the grooming booths had this magnificent dog with long, soft and curly fur. When it flopped down I could easily have mistaken it for being a rug!

Corgi doggo.

Pug in pram. Most of the dogs were well behaved and no fights broke out.. at least not during our visit.

Not real fish, made from resin. They looked so life like tho!

Cat section. They were mostly in cages 😦 except when their owners took them out for grooming.

There was a corner dedicated to insect lovers. Look at this giant Rhinoceros beetle! It was really shiny and wasn’t moving, so I thought it was fake.. turns out they were real. The sticky bits on the stump was actually sugar-water + honey made into jelly, which they eat.

Show pigeons. Again, from afar,  I thought these were fake coz they weren’t in a cage.. until they started moving and plumping their breasts out.  Sooooo fluffy.

A sort of soft shelled turtle from the Amazon. I held it in my hand and it was cold, soft and squishy.

Balls of hamsters.

Some sort of flying fish with dragon wings.

We waited til 1.30PM so that C and Genie could have a Chihuahua photo session! We got a can of beef to take home.

A very fluffy and somewhat sad husky.

 

Til next post!

    1. Yeah, there aren’t too many places where dogs can roam around in Malaysia tbh coz of the whole Muslim sensitivity thing. They definitely can’t go around malls. xD Parks, maybe, and exhibitions like these.

      1. They are, and they’re even allowed to handle dogs as long as they ‘samak’ which is clean themselves with a special type of solution. Problem is, there are bunches of conservatives here who make mountains out of molehills, so…
