#fly2perth : Day 5 Rottnest Island

[Travel in October/November 2015]

Have you heard about Quokka? When I first known of Quokka was a series of selfie photos with them smiling widely. And my first reaction was “OMG! SO CUTE! I WANT A SELFIE WITH QUOKKA TOO!” They belongs to the kangaroos and wallabies family that makes them looks really cute in bunny size :)

During the planning of this Perth trip, the most exciting of the trip was this Rottnest Island trip :) We get really excited and share with Zijie whom staying in Perth at that moment, and decided to go for this island trip together! :) We bought our ferry ticket with Zijie’s network help haha, which I can’t really remember the price for now :/

We ordered a seafood platter for sharing. This seafood platter is for 2, but since most of us are small eater, its really more than enough for 3 of us. Seafood Platter consist of 1/2 lobster mornay, calamari, BBQ prawns, scallops, oysters kilpatrick, grilled and fried fish served with fresh salad and homemade sauce

And we had Oyster’s cheer! :) Friendship Cheers! We basically grow up together and seen through each other good & bad! haha :p

I was sharing with ZJ that actually, we wanted to take a Air Taxi, but its really expensive because we can’t confirm the number of us taking the air taxi. So once we talked about it in the ferry, he decided to call his friend for some “lobang!” and yes, we got it, and not very expensive, less than $100/per pax for such experience! :) All thanks to ZJ’s help! :) So we forgo our return ferry and took Air Taxi back to the Perth city instead :)

This is the plane we going to take, and leave Rottnest Island! Woohoo! :)

 photo IMG_4620 copy_zpsp8ftz2ly.jpg
Before the flight took off, we took a picture with our pilot! :)

 photo IMG_4624 copy_zps53gwnpxw.jpg
we are all ready, a little nervous, a little excited. You know no matter how much you can hear from the pilot conversation, you still get to hear very very loud flight engine too. Mixture of nervous and everything does make me a little worries, so, I took many selca and the scenery out of the plane too. :)

Its a long tiring day, no doubt, the cycling under the hot sun really worn us off. We decided to rest a little, before meeting up again like 8 for dinner together :)

We went to Old Swan Brewery along the Perth along Swan River, which makes the atmosphere and scenery perfect :)
