Christmas in Perth City 2016

I made the right decision to go down town Perth for Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…Celebrated Christmas week with my friends was the best choice ever. Glad to meet up with them and have a long chat, awesome road trip, food and shopping as well. 5 hours of car trip and 1 hour to Perth city was all worth it. Meet up and stayed over at Rachel's house throughout the days. Went to Woolies as well to pick up some groceries for Christmas dinner as most of the shop were not open on that day. Rest for awhile and head to dinner!

Had my first Japanese meal, I mean bento style dinner! ๐Ÿฃ๐ŸฃI love it and been craving it for so long. But still haven't try the real Japanese raw fish for dinner. Then Rachel decided to bake some cookies at night to give it some for her brother and friends the next day. Got to try her homemade cookies! ๐Ÿช๐ŸชIt was so good. All demolished within the next day. That's how good it is. Gonna try her recipe and make it as well for everyone.

On Christmas day itself all of the shop were practically closed. We went to Victoria park to look for restaurant that opens for lunch. Luckily Good Roast open for business a Hong Kong style restaurant!๐Ÿ˜‹ Definitely can't compared back to KK's taste. ๐Ÿ˜…

Went to visit one of the University in Perth, UWA. Oldest and the first University in Perth! I love the vibe and exterior of the building. The University is located in the middle of the city but as soon as I entered the Uni it was magnificent, back to the olden day, a vintage style Uni.

At first we were heading to Kings Park before going to UWA but we couldn't find any parking there. So we went to UWA first. Almost took 30mins to find a parking. Lots of people were gathering and picnic with friends and family. So all packed up at the park.

The scenery was amazing and beautiful. I enjoyed the view and all the walking. And we gave up half way on the glass bridge cause I'm scared of height. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… On the way down from the Kings Park we stopped by awhile and took photo at Blue Boat House. Smells really bad tho all the seaweed and seawater smells really bad but the view was breathtaking.

After that we drove to Frementle for sight seeing again as most of the shop were closed. Didn't managed to go try their fish & chips, ice cream and go to their Frementle Market. Such unfortunate. Fret not I will go there again! ๐Ÿ˜€

Walking around Frementle and take few picture of the small park there. Luckily its a calm and quite day for us to stroll around and chill. The next day which falls on boxing day! We all had an agreement to make it a shopping day. Cause who can resist sales. We all made a good purchase on boxing day. I purchased mostly for me to wear to work and to college. Practical stuff but all so worth it as long as I don't fucking convert to MYR. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

After a tiring day of shopping, we headed to nearby city where my friends recommended to try Korean food. Cause I was really craving for Korean food after so long in Geraldton. This dinner was my treat since they have been kind enough to let me stay over and bring me all other places for sight seeing. So grateful to have them accompany me the whole time during the stay. 

On Christmas night we were planning where to visit on the day after Boxing day. They search and look for some popular tourist place for me to choose. Wave rock or York town. I chose Wave Rock since they haven't been to Wave Rock too. It took us 7 hours forth and back throughout this journey. My first long day road trip to Wave Rock.

The journey was really long and tiring but all worth it with all the scenery on the way to Wave Rock. The scenery was amazing. However Wave Rock was really only few minutes of sight seeing place as it was really small place. And took picture of Hippo Yawn where the rock doesn't look like Hippo to me. More like elephant. HAHA ๐Ÿ˜‘

On the way back we drop off to York town for awhile, took few picture and most important was looking for toilet. HAHA Small vintage town. Most of the shop were closed during that time since its already 6pm. Most of the regional area closed around 5pm to 6pm. Same as Geraldton unless it was restaurant. 

After arrived back to Perth we headed directly to Northbridge for dinner at a Taiwan restaurant. Had our simple dinner then headed to Elizabeth Quay for a night view. The view was really amazing and it was freezing as well that night. I had amazing day and night tiring as well.

Lastly woke up early on Wednesday morning to meet up with my Aunt to head back to Geraldton. I'm a bit reluctant to go back, I love being in the city. The vibe and all the amazing food I can't get in Geraldton. There's down side and up side staying in the city than regional area. I am able to earn more money and use less in regional area, while in city expenses is pretty high and high pay job offer is very low. Also all the weight gain from eating in the city is unbearable!!! In 5days 4 night I've gained 2kg. Living in the city is a NO NO! HAHA Nonetheless I'm having fun in this short trip! I would definitely go there again. 

Till then,
Cheers and God Bless.
