The Western Australia Trip; Day 1 and 2
The trip home took nearly 12-hours, from airport transfers to immigration and flying-off into the sky. I reached home at about 2 AM on the 1st of January, 2012. I woke-up late on a Sunday, just lazing around and enjoying my time at home. Rasanya dah cukup rehat, time to share and record, my adventures.
Day One-Perth, Australia
(Typed this while we were driving to Busselton.)
I slept at around 3 am, enjoying my probably last day/night as a lazy girl catching up with the Korean series, “Goong; Princess Hour”. I was suppose to leave for the airport in two hours time, departing for a 10-day adventure around the Western Australia countryside. This time around I was going as traveller, road-tripper, not as a tourist (gladly). After dizzily waking-up from the cold and rainy early morning of Kuala Lumpur, the whole family made our way towards the airport, and departed, leaving the rainy tropical Malaysia (my favourite weather) for the dry and cold summer of Australia. Day one of the trip has commenced.
Woolsworth is the equivalent of the near-to-home Mutiara Damansara’s Tesco. A nice halal butchery sits nicely in the supermarket, and we engaged in the attack upon the fresh sausages! Well, usually wursts are quite expensive in KL…however here, it is quite affordable! Only AUD$ 7.95 for 1 Kg, and let me tell you, that is enough to feed 10 people, at least.
Day two-Fremantle (40-minutes drive from Perth city)
Basically…it’s a port like Port Klang, minus the gangster problems and confusing road signs. The town by the sea holds a couple of attractions. We went to the E-Shed to get our souvenirs, so that we could worry less about not getting them later on. A brisk 200m walk from the market is Kailis, the oh-so-famous fish and chips spot among Malaysian tourist and travel bloggers. We indulge in the food with our brought-from-home packs of chillies and mayo sauce. Let me inform you that when travelling to Australia, do take with you your own mayo and chilli sauce. Here they charge you AUD$1 for every packet (those small packets) of the sauces.
The trip didn’t end just there, because after Solat Maghrib, approx. around 7.20PM here during Summer, we head out to Perth’s King’s Park, and equivalent of KL’s Jalan Parlimen Lake Garden. From here, there’s an observation deck, to look out into the beautiful night view of Perth’s modest skyline. We ended day two, here.
