060517 Saturday Dim Sum Lunch

Another day, another high tea session. This time Nicole learned to make dimsum. It was an awesome outcome for this lunch meal. Nurool decorated nicely with different style this time. The theme should be Chinese but ended up with Japanese plus modern classic. 

After we took tons of picture of the decoration we gathered all the food on the table and start feasting. Such amazing and scrumptious meal to start with. The amount of food was above average because it was all home cooked and self made. Nicole really did an amazing job in cooking.

As soon as we started our meal some of Nurool's husband friends came to join our lunch session as well as their neighbor. We have tons of food so luckily they manage to clear all the food. Otherwise we have lots of leftovers to dealt with. 

After our awesome meal we had a small meeting for our next party and short rest. Cause at night we were working, so relaxing while we can. It was really nice and chill day, lots of conversation, laughter and amazing food to end the day. I practically gained weight for eating non-stop ever since I come back from my Perth trip. Having a nice day was all worth it. Need to get back on track with fitness a.s.a.p.

Till then,
Cheers and God Bless.

290417 BBQ Day & Sunset Walk

This was definitely an overdue long post. Long story short, 260617 marks the day my uncle passed away. It was a sudden shocked for us. We all knew he was unwell and was ready to go to Perth for minor operation. However due to sudden cardiac arrest/ heart attack he couldn't make it to through his minor surgery on May. It was a despair and sad day for us. I got the news after my aunt picked me up from my friends house. I was real calm when I heard the news because I haven't really absorb everything into my mind. All I was wondering why it happened?? I just couldn't get right through my head. Everything was in confusion. 

The next day(270617) I went to work at the Chinese Restaurant. I was calm when I head to work but as soon as I saw my friends I broke down in front of my them because I can't keep it together. I was real sad and mentally exhausted but I keep myself busy with work after a short while of crying. Afterwards I went to childcare for my next shift, keeping myself busy again to distract my mind, luckily the kids were good that time and keep me happy and entertained. While I was taking the bus home I received a message from one of my friend that I wanted to hear from the most. When I received his message it made me cried again because I need him by my side at that time. But because I refused to let him know what had happen he only got the news later. He ensure I was okay, I called and talked to him on the phone, he was trying to cheer me up and keep me on track. He was all I need to calm my mind. 

Not only that, the 3rd day(280617) after uncle passed away, a lot of problem arise, it was unexpected. All we can do was to wait and wait. Getting our mind and things sort out one by one. I can only be there for my aunt, to support her emotionally and ensure she had her meals. It was hard on both of us, but my aunt suffered the most. 

After a few days(290617) of grasping of what was happening, we kinda let loose a bit especially me. As I couldn't do much. Even tho I can't help much but I need to breathe and take a short break from staying at home for days. I decided to join back the BBQ session when I declined back then. I went to town by myself, walk around the town before I meet up with them on the beach. 

Had the most filling and scrumptious meal with them. It was a great day for BBQ session and we took few photos and enjoy the sunny day beside the beach. They made me calm and happy at the same time. Distract my mind and ensuring I'm alright.

After the BBQ session, one of the Aunty offered to send me home. But it was still too early for me. Because I wasn't ready to go home yet. So I went to shopping and go to one of our friend's house to get his bike. We were planning to do biking but I decided to work at night instead. He was kind enough to spend some time with me beside the beach, practicing his photography skill. It was funny, chill and calm day for me. I'm so thankful for him to stay by my side. He's definitely one of the best gem I've met. Taking a deep breath and distract myself with work and company was worth it. So blessed to have bunch of family and friends to support us while we were fragile and despair. So blessed and grateful despite unexpected circumstances problem arise.

Till then,
Cheers and God Bless.

170417 Easter Holiday Day 4

It was our last day in Perth for our holiday! We woke up pretty early and packed our stuff before the check out time. As we need to head back to Geraldton early as well because we were planning to stop by Nambung sand dune and Pinnacles. 

Because it was still holiday some of the shop were not open. So we change our location to PINCHOS it was the best brunch we had. I think it was Spanish restaurant. Happy tummy indeed.

While we were having our brunch we were waiting for Nicole, Janice and Tony to arrive as well. We were half way finished, so it was only a short while meet up session. After our brunch we drop Joanna off nearby city. It was real hard to bid farewell because I found my best friend. She is my sister. Trying not to cry in front of her but she couldn't resist and cried. All the good times we spend together just ended with a great memories. People do come and go, move on or go back to their own country to start a new venture ahead. 

We literally started our journey back to Geraldton pretty late as we stopped by somewhere for awhile. Then for at least 2 hours of car journey back we stopped by Nambung sand dune. We took pretty much tons of photo as you can see above. It was real windy, cloudy and cold that day. But I wouldn't and refused to wear any jacket because I want the picture to look good on me. While they were warm but I myself was literally shaking, trying to get nice shots of photo.

After Nambung sand dune, we directly head to Pinnacles, I kid you not. I'm literally freezing. While we arrived there I was asking them, 'Did they put or plant the rocks there?'. They were laughing at my ridiculous question. I was in awe struck actually to think it was all from nature because it seems impossible for this to happen. Nature are amazing creation.

While we were in Pinnacle, we did all sorts of dancing, jumping and laughing. People looked at us like we were crazy people. We just enjoy everything and record few videos. It was the best memories we created. It was fun. We were running and dancing towards the phone camera. Thinking back makes it funny enough for us to laugh about it. 

As so after all the crazy stunt we made in front of people we head back to Geraldton. Another 3 hours of car journey. We literally took 1.5 hours time in both Nambung and Pinnacles cause we just wouldn't want to leave without doing all sorts crazy and funny video, not to mention tons of photo!

Anyway we arrived Geraldton pretty late night as we rest half way and had dinner before we continue our journey again. The night view was really amazing. The sky was so clear at night I was mesmerized by the stars above. I kept on looking out from the window for the amazing view. Nonetheless it was real tiring and long journey especially for the driver! Pat on his back and thumbs up for the long hours of driving. For sure our next adventure would be even more fun and amazing! 

Till then,
Cheers and God Bless.

160417 Easter Holiday Day 3

Excited as it gets we woke up early to prepare our Rottnest Island trip. I was practically wearing short in the beginning but everyone else wear long pants. As so I changed to longer wear and brought jacket as well, to prevent sunburn and cold wind. We headed to the Fremantle port and took the ferry to Rottnest Island. 

When we arrived to the port I practically took the car keys off from them while they were buying parking ticket. I went to the toilet and they were looking for me frantically in panic mode. They were nervous to missed to ferry. Never run off myself again HAHAHA. Anyway the sea was good we had snacks on our way to the island. Met a mom and a son there from Austria, her son was so cute, we literally gave him some of our snacks as he was looking at us eating some of it. So adorable of him. 

We had our brunch at Dome when we arrived there and rent a bike for 3 hours. Then we started our biking and stopped by few amazing scenery spot and took few photos. I mean tons of amazing photo. We just couldn't resist how breathtaking creation of nature. All the photo turns out pretty amazing but experience and look at the view itself was worth it! Photo can't 100% do it's justice. Experience it yourself! 

As we continue on our biking journey, we encountered people who fell off from the bike and injured herself. It was one scary image to see blood on her face and on the ground. We sure were reminded to be careful when riding the bike as the route are upwards and downwards. 

Saw Quokka while we head up to the light house. Joanna lure them with food HAHAHA Some of them fight with each other because we stop giving them food. We wouldn't want to get fine or caught giving food without permission. So we just gave few and stopped giving it further more. 

Sitting on top of the fence without support was no fun. I was literally wobbly, luckily the guys gave me support. I'm bad with balancing HAHA. While the light house was our last destination we need to rush back to the bike rental as we were out of time. We literally have an hour and half to return to the ferry and less than 10 minutes to return back the bike. Nurool and me head back the the town first as we took longer time to reach each part of the stop. 

So we bike back earlier without waiting for them. The three of them were fast so we were not particularly scared but when we arrived to the bike rental we still couldn't see them, they arrived later cause they turn to the wrong route. They had to turn back to where we went. The route we went was shorter than the first one we started but all was good. Even tho we returned the bike late for 30 minutes they didn't charge us extra fee. So it was all good.

We were on time for our ferry ride. On our trip back to Fremantle the wind and wave was so strong. The attendant was passing out vomit bag to us, on our way back to the port was horrible. But we slept our way back throughout the trip cause we were so tired from the long hours of biking session. After we arrived, we head to Fremantle market before it closed up. The guys were so tired they had their rest in the car. So we girls headed to the market and the street was lively full with performance. Afterwards we were debating where to eat. So we went to Nando's good chicken good food! HAHA we were hungry as well.

After our scrumptious dinner we had a short walk at Fremantle street. The night was as lively as ever. We join in the crowd and dance together with other people while the band was performing their amazing traditional song, we enjoyed the chilling night and took few photos while we can. It was our best last night in Perth. We were tired but so much fun occurred in one day. We head back to our apartment and end our night. We had our rest and pretty much chill all night. We had our best day and night ever. 

Till then,
Cheers and God Bless

150417 Easter Holiday Day 2

As we were sharing one bathroom with five people in the apartment, I've been the first one to get ready to use the bathroom. Cause otherwise I took so much time getting ready. I'm always the one who takes the longer time. I prefer to wait for people rather than people waiting for me. As so I'm the first one to get ready and waited for everyone. We start off pretty late in ended up from brunch to lunch instead. Shops were mostly close during Easter holiday. So one of the restaurant we intended to go did not open, so we head to other restaurant for lunch.

We had the most scrumptious breakfast a.k.a lunch on the second day in Perth! I couldn't believe how big the portion and the amount of food we ordered. It was a feast. It was so good too! I've been craving for a proper Chinese dimsum. There goes my diet on this trip!

After our amazing lunch we walk to nearby shopping destination. As we have the rest of the day shopping the guys were resting and took lotsa picture by themselves. We girls ended up shopping and I spend quite few of stuff too! I even bought my Lush bath bombs again after trying out one in Japan! Super in love with it.

We were supposed to go for the next destination which was Harbour town for our second place for shopping. Nonetheless we stopped by awhile to take few picture nearby cause the weather was amazing and the architecture of the Church building was amazing.

After our shopping session we head back to our apartment and get ready for our girls night out. Basically we're gonna have dinner with others first then we will head to club for our awesome night. 

Paparich for dinner! I'm so happy to get my craving satisfied after for so long. Actually I didn't crave that much asian food cause I basically can try the food while I was in Perth. I'm just glad that our night was awesome food, great company and amazing night.

That night after our dinner I bumped into one of my friend's sister. So much coincident. After our dinner we were still quite early for club, as club usually starts real late. Anyway we went into one of the club because its free entry. We stayed for only 10 minutes then we head off to male strip club. It was one of the most intense strip club I've been to but it was so boring to be honest. The guys does have the sex appeal but the way they act felt so gay to me. My friends love it but I did not enjoy it as much. 

As so we changed to our last location. The normal club we usually go back in the days, but of course all different kinds of people were there to enjoy themselves. I literally dance my ass out and enjoy as much as possible because its rare to go to club in Perth city. Small town like Geraldton is no fun compared to big city. I had blast dancing with them girls and some guys too 😏😏, some weirdo followed me where his genital keeps rubbing at the back of my ass (DISGUSTED but expected 😒😒😒), one of the guy gay group 👬👬 blocked us from getting close to them while we were closed to them, that was because it was crowded (we're not interested in you even tho you are good looking 😂😂😂)

As so our night ended with a blast! We went home around 1.30am in the morning. Couldn't stay longer as we have to get ready to go to Rottness Island. Joanna and me practically slept at 3am in the morning and woke up at 6.30am again. Anyway our night was the best of the best.  

Till then,
Cheers and God Bless.
