Hot Chicks

In this day and age of shopping at supermarkets and hypermarkets, I have noticed many people (younger people, that is) do not actually know the sources of their burgers and nuggets - that the food products actually come from animals like chicken and cattle. I got to know this first-hand when my son JR was 4-years old - during a trip to our kampung for a kenduri.

The kenduri was held at my uncle's, who reared chickens as a hobby. When we told JR, that the two-legged creatures were what he actually eats in KFC, you should have seen the incredulous look on his face. And he spent the whole afternoon, chasing after them - trying to get a closer look.

The fascination resurfaced recently. While watching a morning show on TV together one morning, we saw a clip on MAHA International 2012, which is Malaysia's leading biennial agricultural show held in Serdang, Selangor. It featured these neat luxury chicken coops (if you can call them that) that looked so cool that we had to go and see. JR and me persuaded the Teenager and MrA that although there were thousands of visitors every day during the show,  this was one trip that we should make.


We got there on the last Saturday of the week-long show. Although we arrived at 10am, which was when the gates were opened, there were already a gazillion other people who were already there. After parking our car, we found that we had to queue to get on the various modes of transportation that would take us to whichever part of the show we wanted to see.

Of course, we were there for the chickens and the chicken coops, so we went straight for the livestock section..

I suppose this would be a standard room.

This one I liked.

JR overwhelmed..and also wilting in the heat..
 Told you the chicken coops were something else!

Translation: Caution! Fierce chicken..

Chicks

Very expensive, these are..
 We also saw rabbits. But we couldn't go near coz JR couldn't stand their smell.



As we were there for the chickens, we were done pretty quick.

An impression of..what else.. a chicken.

Phew..thank goodness for cold drinks.
Well, here's another tick on our school holiday activity list. MAHA..been there, done that!
