Yay! It was a short trip to Perth in December — 3 days! Am glad that it finally happened as it I was pretty disappointed when it was postponed from November due to some “reasons”. This was the furthest I’ve travelled in 27yrs of my life!
It was a very last minute trip — was confirmed just one day before I flew off. And yea, this explains the super expensive ticket I’ve paid for — SGD 1200 — On Jetstar! But that’s okay, there’s always a price to pay for something I really wanted.
Off I went… To Australia! It was an evening flight departing at 5pm and arriving at 11:10pm — ugly timing! This was the first time I took a flight all by myself — pretty boring in fact!
Awful $27.00 Dinner on board — excludes bottle of water!
Finally on the ground after a 5hr boring flight — but it was worthwhile!
A warm welcome !
1st night at Hyatt
Off we went to Yallingup and stopping by at some beaches along the way. Can’t remember the names of the beaches though coz I didn’t take any photos but I think we did stop at one of the beaches along Banbury — Had lunch at a very nice cafe!
Finally arrived in Yallingup after hours of drive from Perth.
Fully equipped kitchen with microwave oven, dishwasher (but I dont know how to operate it!), washing machine (never got to use it coz trip was too short), etc …
And now.. My favourite Spot! Balcony/Smoking Corner!
Views from the Balcony (From left to right)
Pretty much done with the introduction for accommodation. Went out for sight seeing after a little rest.. Cant remember where I’ve been to though. The only thing that I could recall during the trip were the flies — they are everywhere. You could basically see everyone using their hands to shoo off the flies like a national salute!
Dinner for the night — Salads and Pizza
Drinks for the night — Wine + Beer
Nice Refreshing Beer, Blue Tongue Lager. I doubt I will buy this off the shelf (if I havent tried it before) because of the picture! Will you?
Cooling my feets! =)
Dinner @ Margaret River
Loves the firewood oven. Too bad we had pizza for dinner the night before, else I’ll definitely order one!
Summary of trip:It was a very relaxing trip to Perth but there’s nothing much apart from sight seeing in the day and drinking at night.
Alcohol is so cheap in Aussie, you can easily get a bottle of wine for less than 20bucks! Love it.
Hates the huge portions of food served though — could only finish 1/2 of whatever is served — how i wished they served kid size.
Oh yea, and the irritating flies — hate it!
All was well in general till the very last evening — anyway it’s over — things have changed for the better!
Hurray! I’m glad I made it for this trip!
