Perth 211103 – 281103


Changi Airport
Nov 21 – 8:36am

Yea, so what? We had two hours before the flight. No choice but to do the usual say-cheeze-to-camera post.

Changi Airport

So you see ‘Departure Gate’. That’s before boardin’ the flight.

On the flight
Nov 21 – 1:16pm

What? You expect me to tell you that we were on the flight lookin’ out? OK, so we were on the flight, and we were lookin’ out. See those white patches? Yes, they were cloud.

Arrived at Perth
Nov 21 – 5:18pm

Jeanette’s room. It was so cold that I
didn’t have to act cool, see that?

Outside Jeanette’s house
Nov 21 – 6:50pm

Guess why did we take this photo?

Carillon Foodcourt
Nov 21 – 8:25pm

We should have taken western food,
but we didn’t. For some reasons we tried Chinese food in the foodcourt, and came to conclude that the Chinese food there tasted sweet. Or in another word, IT SUCKED.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia
Nov 21 – 8:42pm

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia, at Murray Street.

Post Office
Nov 21 – 9:03pm

That buildin’ is a post office, also located at the Murray Street. See that huge yellowish thingy? That’s Chinese lantern display.

Nov 21 – 9:06pm

Right opposite of the post office. If sit
closely enough you can see the Chinese wordings on the lanterns.

More Lanterns
Nov 21 – 9:17pm

Animal lanterns in front of Myer, one of the biggest shoppin’ malls in Perth City.

Train station
Nov 21 – 9:57pm

Perth train station. One is allowed to eat, or to bring his bicycle, pets onto the train. But the station is onsidered very clean. Remember though, the train tickets can be reused on any local bus within two hours.

Nov 21 – 10:03pm
James Street Mall

We were on our way to Northbridge. Thank God it was Friday and was very happenin’ even at that hour. For those DimSum lovers, there is an authentic Hong Kong DimSum Restaurant named ‘宴宾楼’.
Nov 21 – 10:04pm

Tons of pubs and restaurant with food from all around the world. It was where we paid 2 bucks for a 30-second peep show (but we felt like it was less than that, maybe the fella cheated us!!). Northbridge cuisine is a virtual melting pot of tastes and flavours, with a kaleidoscope of cultures including Italian, Greek, Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai and traditional English fare.

London Court
Nov 22 – 12:31pm

A place by the name ‘London Court’, sellin’ lots of things rangin’ from food to souveniors.

You get to see performance now and then at Hay Street. Those three guys each played different instrument while dacin’ before many people, givin’ a great performance.

Nov 22 – 1:58pm

Just a view at Subiaco, nothin’ to see here, move on guys…

Nov 22 – 2:27pm
Subiaco Market

Like I said, Subiaco Market. Fruits, food, soft toys, flowers, you name it.

Gelare ice-cream
Nov 22 – 3:34pm

Nice ice-cream they have there, main source of fat we carried back from Australia. (We soon realized that they DO HAVE Gelare ice-cream here also…)

Hoyts Cinema
Nov 22 – 8:53pm

Ooooooh no, fat hope. I’m not gonna tell you that Hoyts is a cinema and for sure I’m not gonna say we caught Matrix Revolution there…

DOME in Carousel
Nov 22 – 11:18pm

See the staircase behind DOME counter? That leads to Hoyts cinema. I see you concluded that Hoyts is in Carousel, good, keep it up.

Ocean Reef

Friends brought us to Ocean Reef, where they fished all their abalones. From left: mother in yellow, son of the mother, Jeanette, Diana, and my McDonald coffee cup.

Ocean Reef Seaside
Nov 23 – 7:15am

Another view at Ocean Reef. The sky was bright even before 6am, and the wind was strong and chillin’ cold under such a bright sun.

Nov 23 – 8:23am

Look at that!! Those were caught by Alex (or was it Troy?), he’s experienced in fishin’ abalones. Somebody cares to remind me how many did he get?

Nov 23 – 11:54am

We then headed down to Fremantle by bus (the train system to Fremantle was down, we had to take bus there).

South Terrance
Nov 23 – 12:19pm

Best coffee

Nov 23 – 12:24pm
Fremantle Market

That’s the entrance to Fremantle Market. It’s of larger scale compared to Subiaco Market (i.e. it sells more variaties of things).
Fish and Chips
Nov 23 – 2:04pm

Extra-large portion of fish and chips. We could have gotten away with only one set, because those two different sets were ‘un-finishably’ LARGE!! Oh, that was a boat behind us, the restaurant is built right next to the sea.

Cicerello’s Fish and Chips
Nov 23 – 2:04pm

The same fish and chips restaurant

Nov 23 – 3:12pm

Nov 23 – 4:29pm

That was the Fremantle Festival, once in a year. And we were lucky enough to be there to witness the whole thing.

Nov 24 – 11:09am

A roadside garden at Perth City. It was a pitty that we couldn’t take a nice picture here together, the beautiful garden was really a sight.

London Court Café
Nov 24 – 11:26am

Breakfast + London Court Café + nice weather = Heaven. Period

Nov 24 – 3:14pm

The big bells in Swan Bells Tower.

Nice View
Nov 24 – 3:23pm

This is the pathway surroundin’ the building’s outer wall, at level six, with a transparent floor. It was so scary to even try to walk through it. I watched it on tape again still scares the daylight out of me.

Kings Park
Nov 24 – 5:57pm

Perth City view from Kings Park.

The Fire of Remembrance
Nov 24 – 6:27pm

Ah great, we blocked the fire behind us. Anyway, THAT, is the ‘Fire of Remembrance’ at the Kings Park.

Cottesloe Beach
Nov 25 – 5:03pm

One of those very famous beaches in Western Australia, facin’ the Indian Ocean. It could have been better if the day started off hot, then there’d be more people on the beach.

Dinner at Fremantle
Nov 25 – 6:50pm

Best pasta I’ve ever tasted, and the “Fisherman’s Basket”. The wind was freakin’ cold as we sat outside of the restaurant, my hands went numb within minutes.

That’s Gino which makes the best coffee in Perth. Pitty though we didn’t really have time to stop by and have coffee there.

A mini museum at Tumbulgum Farm, showin’ some history of the aboriginal there.

Sheep Dogs
Nov 26 – 3:10pm

This guy made his dogs group those sheeps together, ya, as-seen-on-TV. The horse had his eyes covered by thin layer of net as there were too many flies surroundin’ us, they might annoy the horse.

Sheep Shearing
Nov 26 – 3:26pm

That is, strip that sheep.

Nov 26 – 4:03pm

Trust me when I say we have tried our best to smile ‘naturally’, the flies were just too friendly.
