Melbourne – Day of Departure

We checked out exactly at 11 am then, no where to go, except for the town area.Lepak-lepak depan libraryHe specifically requested to take picture hereLuckily my friend Nuha offered to lepak at her house before our flight back home (which was at 1 am…hahahah). Actually I wanted to experience a Sunday garage sale in Melbourne tapi apakan daya dah flight tengah malam, tak dapekla nak pegi. So, as a compensation, Nuha’s hubby bawakla kita pergi rumah mat saleh ni. Kata hubby Nuha, kalau ada belon kat tiang lampu or kat road sign, mesti ada orang buat garage sale. Kalau kat Mesia, jangan harapla, kang ada orang buat aduan berniaga tanpa lesen pulak kang. So, kitorang pun pegilah rumah mat saleh tu…. tak amik gambar pun, takkan pegi rumah orang tu amik gambar pulak?!I bought a Donatello (TMNT figurine zaman dulu) a few other toys…costed just 50 cents. Hubby Nuha pula beli racket tennis for a dollar…murah gile. Mat Saleh tu tak peduli dah. Ko amikla I just want to get rid of the stuffs. Kata…

Giraffes Can’t Dance is in Malaysia!!

Originally from the UK, this theatre is about a giraffe named Gerald. It learns how to dance despite his bandy knees. A very inspiring and happy-ending story. We went half an hour before the show to check out our seats. PosterActually I have been wanting to bring my son to watch a play/theatre just to let him feel the experience. I don’t think I can bring him to a cinema yet coz he’s a chatterbox when it comes to asking endless questions and creating questions from answers given by us. So, to be safe and to avoid dari kena marah dek orang sebab bising, I quite like this theatre idea.Posing depan dindingWe can’t take pictures or record the show but I managed to just snap one picture (no flash) just to show you how the play was.Gerald the GiraffeOur seats are premier seats (RM66) but ermm…since we were in the middle, so, that’s the best view (mat saleh ni besar2 la..)…but all in all, it was fun… My son was in awe for the first half an hour and then he lost interest, but the thing is, th…

Kita memang macam tu...

Kita memang masyarakat yang harmoni. Kita boleh hidup bersama walaupun kita berbeza agama, budaya dan bangsa. Ya, kita memang boleh....Kita boleh bersabar...ye, tapi sampai bila?

Adakah kita akan bersabar kalau train asyik delay jer? or bila 'train mengalami gangguan teknikal'? Boleh ke kita bersabar lagi jika problem tu berlarutan sehingga 3-4 jam? Sampai berpeluh-peluh, takde tempat duduk di station (seats takde backrest pulak tuh)? Sampai terlewat untuk interview, exam? etc etc.....?

Apa gunanya beratur, tapi bila train datang, semua berpusu-pusu, berebut-rebut, bertolak-tolakan tak mengira bangsa, lelaki ke, perempuan ke, tua atau muda, orang tua, OKU, perempuan mengandung, ibubapa dengan anak-anak kecil/baby.......what is the f****** use of lining up?

Yang dah selamat masuk train boleh pulak bersuara, "Take another train la", then continues, "roti saya pun dah lembik"......."yeah, and I'm pregnant, f*** you!"

Kenapa nak concern dengan roti di…

Makan at Kings Kebab and Es Teler, in Melbourne

Makan tu penting, tapi where to eat when you are in another land?…I always fall back to our local food and most importantly, it should be halal……baru lah tenang hati sikit…hehehe…..so, ada dua tempat yang best jugak kat sini….first is kebab kat Kings Kebab in Pascoe Vale Road…mmm…if you are not a fan, tak payah la makan sebab benda-benda macam ni sekali sekala boleh la kan…the second one is Es Teler in Swanston Street…..ramai yang makan kat situ mesti puji sup buntut (ox-tail soup) dia…kaw gitu…Teringat zaman makan kebab masa kat UK dulu…(hehe)Waiting for our order…Lamb kebabIskandar something…..can’t remember the exact name…In Es Teler, the menu is pasted on the wallsSup Buntut yang sangat kawWaiting for our orderEs Teler is always crowded especially during lunch and dinner…tempat ni memang famous among Indonesians, Singaporeans and Malaysians.

Melbourne Itinery – Day Two

If you love shopping for souvenirs, don’t miss to shop at the Victoria Market situated in Elizabeth Street. Since it’s near from our apartment, we just walked towards the market. Sampai jer, we jalan line by line coz it’s really big, rasa macam car boot Shah Alam pulak (minus the hot blazing sun)…..it was really nice to see so many things on sale, t-shirt souvenirs, magnets, towel, whatever you want, you name it, you’ve got it…..but, most of them made in China la…Personally, I love the t-shirts coz it’s really made in Australia…and really cheap, just AUD$5….we bought 10 and got one for free…(banyak nak kasi as souvenir)Merchandise areaBudak kacamata di depan t-shirt stallKitchen deco…eh, kalau lah ada rumah sendiri, mesti dah beli dah niCapsicums, cucumbers and tomatoes….very fresh…More fresh veggiesPelik kan cili dia?Makan churros for snackDah jalan-jalan pastu lapar pulak so we had churros for snack….the last time I had churros was in Japan…dah lama giller ok…best jugakla dapat mera…
