Sorry that it took a tad long to write this for there’s a lot of things brewing! Nonetheless, here’s what happened on the last day of our trip!
And so, since it was our last day in Perth, we were rushing to buy what we haven’t and visit the places that we’ve missed. But first, we have to clear those leftovers ingredients that we bought!
But first of all, let’s just show you a nicer and not so messy picture of the Airbnb that we stayed for the past 2 days.
This place was actually a spa but they changed it to rent out for people to stay. I wasn’t too sure of they still operate though because the signboard was still there.
Anyway, the place was enough to squeeze the whole group of us together although some were actually sofa beds in an open area. The above was one of the living rooms that was still rather neat after 2 nights.
And then we’ve got our 2 chefs who woke up earlier than the rest to cook breakfast for us using whatever food that we bought to cook for previous days. Here’s a really big THANK YOU to them for the nice yummy food! ^^ It is always good to hang out with people who can cook nice food!
Shopping – Fremantle Market
We went out slightly later on the last day as everyone was feeling tired from all the travelling for the past few days. Nevertheless we left before 10am and arrived at the Fremantle Market which we had planned to go on the day of arrival.
Today is the day to catch up!
It was a relatively hot and sunny day but that definitely doesn’t affect our mood.
Little milkie saw this and when I told her that it was a phone, she was so surprise! Guess it happens when you live in a country and era where payphones are hardly seen already.
Well, the moment we stepped into the market, the little girl nudged at me and said that she wanted a doughnut since she hadn’t took her breakfast yet.
It was, to me, a very interesting place with tons of handmade crafts. It wasn’t as big as I had thought though.
This was one of my favourite stall. The aroma of the soap was so nice that I couldn’t resist the temptation to buy a few!
There were a lot of other stalls, such as the one that sells pictures of cartoon characters and famous artists, and the one that sells watches with handmade leather straps etc.
Cafe – Gabriel’s Chocolate
It took us a while to finish walking before we took a short rest at this cafe. The first moment I stepped in, I wondered if this really a chocolate fountain!
It was quite a small cafe.
But the ambience was nice…
… and so is the food! I had an eclair and till now, I still can vividly remember the taste!
Attraction – The Blue House
With that, we continued our journey to the Blue House!
We didn’t really know what that place is except that it looks really nice in photo. It was a long walk from the place where we parked our car.
Indeed, it was worth the walk!
In case if you are wondering why little milkie wasn’t in these pictures. Well, she was so tired that she dozed off just before we reached.
We didn’t manage to take too many photos for there was a queue behind us. Nice thing about here, people don’t cut queues! They simply patiently wait! I guess it’s always nice when you are in a country where people ain’t always rushing for time…
I managed to take a nice jump shot of the dad. The mom failed to jump high despite a few tries. Oops.
We went shopping at Belmont Forum thereafter. This was a last minute decision and we definitely never regret it! There were so many things to shop! This is definitely a must-go the next time we come to Perth again.
And so after all the last minute shopping, and squeezing the goodies into the luggage, we bid farewell to Perth and headed for the airport at night.
It definitely was a great trip, to be travelling with the relatives in such a big group. I doubt we would be able to have another one that is as big, and to be able to spend time with the young as well as the old. I guess a lot of times, in the midst of our busy schedule, we tend to neglect the ones around us.
Maybe, just maybe, once in a not so long while, take some time out to spend quality time with your loved ones.
With that, it’s time to celebrate the up and coming National Day!
