#fly2perth : Goodbye Perth!

[Travel in October/November 2015]

Last day! Though I took really long to finish this entire Perth trip, its really a wink when we were there! It’s been a really great trip for me partly because I was working almost every single days (include PH and Weekends), sleeping just 2hours from end May all the way to October. I have a great rest, great trip, have fun eating and touring around and putting more weight – see from my face, round like a moon :p On top of that, I get to meet 3 groups of friends whom I havent met for the longest time. Good to catch up :)

#fly2perth : Day 9, Last Day :(

[Travel in October/November 2015]

Last day of the trip usually planned with something easy and simple, and we tried to keep it this way too. We supposed to have our Whale watching today but because of the sea is a little rough, they had to cancel today schedule. So, we didn’t manage to get another time slot since we were returning the next day. Hence, we just proceed Hillary for some walks since we supposed to head over there for our ferry! :)

#fly2perth : Day 8, Hot Air Balloon!

[Travel in October/November 2015]

We had a very very early sleep because we need to arrive at Avon Valley meeting point at 4am. That’s make us leaving our hotel by 2pm, and it means, sleep real early! But, its all worth for a Hot Air Balloon experience! :) Apparently, we were the only foreigners while the rest came from different part of Australia :)

After the meeting point, they will send us to the hot air balloon location and remind us not to bring any bags. We were only allowed to bring things that is able to contain in our pockets and camera are fine, as long take off and landing we have to keep within our jacket (etc).

 photo IMG_5136 copy_zps9ownzxea.jpg

It was a long tired day for us because of the little sleep & the long journey to and back. Hence, we decided to go back bath and have another rest before heading out for dinner at 5pm. And our dinner was the very famous Italian restaurant – Ciao Italia~~~

 photo IMG_5145 copy_zpsaufcwavu.jpg
We ordered a squid ink pasta in seafood carbonara sauce too! Its really good too. We doesn’t have enough stomach for dessert or pizza. Actually, we cant finished our food either haha. We actually do a take-away and have it again the next day as our brunch! :D

As much as we were really full, and not willing to go back to our hotel as its one of our last few nights in Perth before heading back to SG :( So we decided to go for a drink! We passed this cafe on our way back, and thought of might as well visiting this place. Its a random finds, and we thought it worth coming back again for their drinks and atmosphere! :)

#fly2perth : Day 7, Exploring a little bit of Fremantle

[Travel in October/November 2015]

Exploring a little more in Fremantle today! Before that, we moved to another of our accommodation located at North Fremantle, Pier 21 Apartment Hotel. We love it so much when we saw photos of it, and I’m really thankful to manage to find such an awesome view hotel. Basically, it overlook marina on the Swan River, which gave a really breathe-taking view that you can’t ask for more! :)

I will recommend friends and family who wanted to a trip in Perth, can definitely consider staying with Pier 21 Apartment Hotel. As we move around via car, so there wasn’t much issue for us.

 photo IMG_4855 copy_zpsmhyirlhf.jpg
And we were so surprised that we got a complimentary room upgrade to Riverside Suites. (This suite cost SGD330 per night!!!)

 photo IMG_4853 copy_zpsgtnyueux.jpg
Our suite has a really big living room area where we get to rest and do nothing. Basically nua-ing while watching tv shows! haha!

 photo IMG_4856 copy_zpsqc7imxmv.jpg photo IMG_4854 copy_zps0vo8ik3g.jpg
Oh yeah, we have a proper kitchen with oven too! If only we have more days here, we could and maybe even bake a cake! hahahahahahaha! We gonna have awesome dinner tonight, because we have awesome kitchen! :p

 photo IMG_4846 copy_zpsutos7zjq.jpg
The toilet was big too, connecting the shower room and the walk-in wardrobe! :)

 photo IMG_4847 copy_zpshm1d0nso.jpg
I super super in love with rain shower! :)

 photo IMG_4848 copy_zpsh5qnyhx9.jpg
We have yoga mat, we can even do yoga during our stay here! (no lah, we didnt do it haha!!!)

 photo IMG_4849 copy_zpscagozn6z.jpg
Our bed is really comfortable! :)

 photo IMG_4850 copy_zpswmrkfgoz.jpg
Yes we have a tv in the bedroom too! :) We can even watch our favourite Undercover Boss here too! :p

 photo IMG_4851 copy_zpsqmjhjibl.jpg
Another view of our living room :)

 photo IMG_4858 copy_zpsydwlbpkp.jpg

After taking lots of photos of the rooms, and going crazy over how awesome this marina view of Swan River… We decided that its time for our lunch, and we headed out to Mary Street Bakery (Yes again! Because we really love the food from yesterday, and wanted to give other dish a try too!)

 photo IMG_4684 copy_zpsfd2bhnft.jpg
And yes, we are back again! haha :)

 photo IMG_4865 copy_zps0xopgn5a.jpg
 photo IMG_4868 copy_zpss7zs2gmo.jpg
 photo IMG_4870 copy_zpsk0gsgz5k.jpg

Honestly, the food was okay, but will prefer the spread from yesterday meal. It is more delicious and tasty as compare :) And remember the well-known Salted Caramel Donut that both my friends love? Yes, we did takeaway this time :) But, it is best ate in the cafe than doing a takeaway :/

Our next destination will be Fremantle Prison, which is a former Australian prison used till 1991. We joined the tour, and its one of the most enjoyable tour I ever went in oversea. The guide is funny and lively while sharing many happenings with great descriptions what I can literally imagine it.

 photo IMG_4872 copy_zpscoicnhzn.jpg
 photo IMG_4877 copy_zpsowi6iefb.jpg
We were too early for our tour, and we were walking around the gift shop. I thought the soft toys – Prisoners & Police is really cute!!! No I didn’t buy it haha :)

 photo IMG_4878 copy_zpskzton9d1.jpg

And so, we started our Fremantle Prison Tour now :)

 photo IMG_4880 copy_zpsvl8s2dcb.jpg
After being convicted, and brought over to this place, you gonna surrender everything here.

This look even a smaller room.

 photo IMG_4918 copy_zps0nszei4m.jpg
Because it get too crowded, and they started to have bunk room for 2 pax.

 photo IMG_4919 copy_zpsbgvrmg3u.jpg
And this is really interesting, there’s someone who spent his time drawing on the wall. I have to say, he is a good artist!

 photo IMG_4922 copy_zpsa55wajqa.jpg
The drawing are well-drawn and well-coloured.

 photo IMG_4924 copy_zpsfuenehnk.jpg
 photo IMG_4926 copy_zpssfspgcfe.jpg
Some of them will “buy” radio or tv for leisure, but I am not sure how they actually buy it! haha :/

 photo IMG_4927 copy_zpsvwp2z2jk.jpg
 photo IMG_4928 copy_zpsppryulln.jpg
 photo IMG_4932 copy_zpsav5d1az4.jpg
We went to this room, and our guide close the door and off the light. And its really pitch dark, where he told us one of the prisoner that live inside for 23hours everyday with just bible. Its really scary because you cant even see anything in front of you! :(

 photo IMG_4935 copy_zpsiufgolf2.jpg
And this is the death sentence.

The tour ended with a blast, I have to say, its my first time enjoyed so much from a guided-tour. This tour is really interesting and we get to know more about how a prison operated and how a prisoner was brought into the prison since day 1. From how they going to surrender their everything > their room > their daily schedule > places that they have their free-time > facing stroke sentences etc.

I will recommend other friends to join the guided-tour too! :)

Before heading back to make our dinner, we wanted to get some nice food to prepare in our new accommodation :) Yeah! With really well-equipped hotel room, we can basically cook anything and everything too! hehehehe! :) So, as we were driving to Coles, we saw this beautiful big wall mural, that we can’t help it and stopped for photos! Yeah! :)

 photo IMG_4967 copy_zpsbxtlkodu.jpg

#fly2perth : Day 6 Day trip to Swan Valley

[Travel in October/November 2015]

I love Australia, I must repeatedly say this again and again. Few days before I wrote this entry, I just tell my friends how much I love Australia, and how much I want to be back. I was telling Teng while we cycling over the weekend that, need to wait for 2018 for Australia since we have other travel plans in 2017. We both know we miss Australia and wish to be back soon. haha :)

So back to our Perth trip, we gonna have our day trip out to Swan Valley and we will be heading to Mary Street Bakery which is a highly recommended cafe too! :) Yeah! Excited! :)

Today ride is by Zijie because he said, its always nicer to be on a road trip by convertible car, which we jolly happy agreed with it and off we go via his car! yeah! :) But the sun was so hot so hot, that probably made teng chaotar! haha, but I was still fine because I was sitting in front :p

#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 :/

and again :p

we returned our bicycles and headed our super late lunch at Aristos Waterfront Rottnest :)

 photo IMG_4614 copy_zpshjhl44hw.jpg
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

 photo 20151103_153427 copy_zps4qkdx4zd.jpg
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 :)

 photo IMG_4617 copy_zpsambi8el9.jpg
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. :)

 photo IMG_4653 copy_zpsz1wsgjhe.jpg
and we safely arrive! WoohooO!! :) Our pilot was really nice to drop off us at the ferry terminal carpark! :)

 photo IMG_4666 copy_zpscfnogdpc.jpg

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 :)

 photo IMG_4669 copy_zpsjqvk5io1.jpg
Garlic bread was good, to the point :)

 photo IMG_4671 copy_zpszq3ay6oz.jpg

#fly2perth : Day 4 To Perth City

[Travel in October 2015]

Yes, I have heard too many friends sharing how boring Perth is, and they didn’t want a return trip. I guessed, this is because Perth closed at 5pm and that’s make everyone think its nothing but boring. Come to think about it, there’s plenty of road trips we can do, and many outdoor activities we can do together with our friends and family. And in fact, they didn’t really closed at 5pm at places like Fremantle! :)

For the past 3 entries I shared, was more like living in a countryside, with minimum and enjoyed the scenery and everything we could with the resources in the house. Pretty fun, like I always say, its a type of Australia trip I always wanted. Such a healing trip for me :)

So on our 4th day, we decided to head over to the City! We have so much agenda that day! We are going to shop at Pandora, visit the well-known Target, and most importantly, meeting my friend Andrew and his family, which I insist that he must bring the little one along :)

 photo IMG_4433 copy_zpsli0iotdt.jpgAre we lucky to see Jacarandas Tree here? My favourite colour – Purple. Its so pretty and so excited to see the tree filled with pretty purple flowers!

Heard that Perth City carpark is really expensive and many encourage us to just take the train over. Hence, we decided to park at the carpark next to the Fremantle Station! :)

 photo IMG_4435 copy_zpsfp6wjtss.jpg
 photo IMG_4439 copy_zpsowhqfirb.jpgWe dressed very confusing because teng dressed like summer while I dressed like winter! :)

 photo IMG_4440 copy_zpsdszljofp.jpgThe one way train ticket cost us 4.50AUD, considering a little pricey!

Something to take note, while we were moving around, we realised, the wilson carpark at the city is costing not more than 20AUD which we thought wasn’t as expensive as what most people mentioned. So with the fare costing 9AUD x 2 + our carpark fee 10AUD, which sum up quite expensive! So, this is something you can take note!!! :)

Moving around the city, checking out shops. Its like another modern shopping city, where you get to see high-rise building and many branded stores! :)

Met Andrew and family at La Veen Coffee & Kitchen, which looks pretty good. Its been so long we last met, was it before both Andrew & Valene left for Perth? And now they are upgrade to daddy and mummy of little Vivienne :)

 photo IMG_4444 copy_zpsvysx88uu.jpg photo IMG_4442 copy_zpsuxjiak9n.jpg
The menu actually looks good and there’s so much to order but the stomach is not big enough! :(

 photo IMG_4445 copy_zpsbitlqlaa.jpg
 photo IMG_4446 copy_zpsptdqancs.jpg
Signature Tiramisu, i didn’t ate it but Teng said its pretty good! :)

 photo IMG_4449 copy_zpst0468l0w.jpgI remembered when it came, I was like, omg, this looks so pretty, I need to take a photo of this haha!

 photo IMG_4451 copy_zpsbvuvk3ev.jpg

Brunch was good!

 photo IMG_4457 copy_zpsseaveksd.jpg
Hi Baby Vivienne! She was so cute, sitting so stable on the chair and moving her body left and right, so cute so cute, can I bring her home haha! :)

 photo IMG_4460 copy_zpslycx5beq.jpg
 photo IMG_4461 copy_zpssfokfr7k.jpg
 photo IMG_4463 copy_zpsuyarsd5w.jpgThank you Andrew & Valene for your time, and the great lunch! :)

So glad to see your own friend settle down good and happy especially in a foreign country! I know Andrew for 13 years, remembering those days when the 4 of us (yingseah, joy, fala and me) kept asking him to buy our lunch for us and ordering the same because we cant decide. Going through some homework that we can’t do, and he will helped us along the way! Thank you! :) Its been good to see you again, and hopefully soon! Come back and find us when you are free too! :)

Teng said, I picked a good spot, like right outside Prada haha!

 photo IMG_4466 copy_zpslavdm9z3.jpgLooks, we are happy with the purchases, there’s bag within bags too! And, I got some purchases from Pandora too! Got some xmas gift for my cousins and friends, and helped my cousin to get a brand new bracelet+charms as well.

If you are someone who love Pandora, and wanted to visit Australia, you can buy the charms/bracelet there because its alot cheaper as compare to even US. On top of that, you can get tax refund too. Good deal! :)

 photo IMG_4467 copy_zps5ryvibpo.jpg

London Court, my friends told us its a must-to-visit because the building are nice, and many many tourist will take a memorial photo here! So, we decided to find a cafe there and have a drink. You know, shopping is tiring haha!

The building actually remind me alot of Harry Potter, where he bought his wand at Diagon Alley. Not exactly alike, but you get what I mean. haha!

 photo IMG_4475 copy_zpsxdmauqig.jpgSitting down for a drink can make us happier. Soon, we realise its near 5pm, and its about time to take the subway back. Staying in Perth does make one healthier.

 photo 20151102_160604 copy_zpsptpc5mio.jpg
This is how the subway station looks like. So pretty! :)

 photo 20151101_175807 copy_zpsn4heuu2i.jpgwalked over to the Coles next to the carpark. Love visiting supermarket because their food section is really awesome, they have almost everything and things that we didn’t get to see often. We bought some groceries for our dinner later. And this definitely spell baby spinach. yes, we always buy baby spinach because they really taste super crunchy and fresh! :)

 photo IMG_4480 copy_zpslb66pycy.jpg
Love our white table so much that, it helps alot when taking photo. We still have 2 more serving from the home made pasta from the day before. So, we are having yummy Seafood cream pasta with our all-time-favourite spinach! :)
