Memories of March Perth trip… how I miss it…
Memories of March Perth trip… how I miss it…
This entry is focusing solely on the FOODDDDD…
We attempted to make Japanese cheesecake during the week I was there, and I *think* I might have perfected the recipe!
I’ve always been interested to know how hospital food look and taste like… ok… I don’t think I want to taste it now…
Breakfast with Darren at Globe Cafe, Mt Lawley. As usual, it was fantastic: creamy scrambled eggs with fluffy toast.
Lunch with him was Sumo Salad at a shopping centre near home. The salad was so gooooood! Also had my favourite Boost juice (there’s actually a Boost juice in SG, VivoCity, but there’s hardly anyone there…) – actually that was my 2nd Boost in a day… my favourite 2&5 veggie fruit juice!
Obviously, I had a lot more other food than what I’ve posted but no pictures. Jo did a roast and it was really good! One of the mums of Jarrod’s friends at school made us some lovely cupcakes (thanks so much!), while another friend of @nn made a lovely pasta bake. We also had my favourite Ciao Italia (though it wasn’t that nice anymore cos we were late in picking up the takeout, and we had a 30min drive before we reached home to enjoy the food). Dim Sum at a new Chinese restaurant – but that was forgettable. And lots of home cooked food!
Shoot! I thought of editing and updating my post when somehow, I managed to delete half of what I have originally posted. Oh well… here we go again!
I bought a new Braun Buffel wallet & a pair of Polo Ralph Lauren sunglasses at the airport even before we boarded the plane. I can’t imagine what else I’d buy when I’m officially on holiday! Wallet was ~S$130 while sunnies were ~S$290. Both were duty-free, so that’s probably my only consolation for the amount I’ve spent pre-holiday. *Pardon the cutesy bolster background – it belongs to my boyfriend, so I don’t care what you say. Hmph!
Our flight was a night one (taking off at 7pm, arriving at 2am) and I was still working that day, so I thought I would be snoring away on the flight. But the food (oh, I always look forward to flight meals, for some weird reason) and the entertainment kept me awake. Food was bad – one of the rare inedible SQ meals, but entertainment… boy oh boy… how could I ever resist Edward Cullen? Yup, my fourth time watching Twilight and still as good!
Let me introduce both my boyfriends to you…
Though I was in Perth for a good 2 years, I’ve never parked illegally SG-style (ie, anywhere, on the kerb, walkway etc). But Jo… apparently has adapted very well!
A quick peek at the boy’s school… looks fun!
We also visited Garden City, my ‘favourite-test’ shopping place in Perth because they have almost all the shops I like under one roof! Plus FREE parking! I didn’t buy much though cos I still have lots to bring back from the Chanders’.
The main reason why we went over:
While we were there, we also took a look at the new place. Backyard’s huge! Please grow some veggies when the place is completed!
I spent a good part of Saturday hanging out with Darren. Met up really early, like 845am! Somehow, mornings aren’t that dreadful in Perth, even when I was there as a student. Went back to uni to look at the new Business building and also to East Perth just to look at the beautiful architecture. There’s something about the buildings there that I could never get enough of!
For most part of the holiday, I was either playing with the boys, or watching TV – think Ben10, Bakugan, Bones. Good shows, good shows. I was hooked onto Ben10!!!
We also rented a car while we were there to help us get around during the day. Good thing we did, because on the day we wanted to rent a car, we missed the only bus to bring us to the train station and had to walk 30mins (the next bus comes in an hour’s time!). The train ticket was A$5.10, expensive but that’s probably the usual pricing. Rented a car from M2000 cos Bayswater were out of cars. Can you believe that?! Got a Nissan tiida so that’s something new because we always get Toyota Corollas from Bayswater and that gets a little boring after some time.
2nd day here and it’s slightly more relaxed now. yesterday was a whirl cos we were scuttling between the boys’ schools, hospital and home. i’ve got tons to update – my shopping trip started early at the airport!- and so many pictures taken but those will have to come later cos i don’t want to screw up @nn’s internet connection.
unlike singapore, there are no unlimited (download) plans here. instead, you’ll enjoy high speed for a certain amount of GB downloads (depending on your plan). if you exceed the ‘given’ data amount, your speed will be reduced till the next billing cycle. ok, i’m bad at describing, but you get the drift, don’t you?
i’m having a great time with the boys here (let’s not forget their parents too!). they are extremely cute and funny. lots of antics and tricks up their tiny sleeves. the new baby’s absolutely a girly girl, no doubts about that cos she’s dainty and she sleeps girly too. let’s hope her brothers don’t influence her with their roughness when she gets older.
the weather’s a little bonkers, but not so much like melbourne *oops*.
aite, gotta go now!
