The original plan was to go to the Caversham Wildlife Park to feed the kangaroos. We changed it to Rockingham Wild Encounters sebab Adam has never been there. Caversham dia dah pernah pegi. Since Monday is the only day he could spend the whole day with us (no class), we chose to see the penguins.
After breakfast (16 March 2015), we went to pick up Adam and head to Watertown Brand Outlet Centre (formerly known as Harbourtown). I need fitflops sebab it’s too hot and I could not walk in my sneakers all day long, especially to the beach! Jalan pusing outlet se-round and stop for lunch at Ispa Kebab. Halal food is pretty much everywhere. We didn’t have problem to find food at all!
Journey to Rockingham is about 45 minutes. The traffic was clear and we wazed through the highway. Hubby enjoyed driving in Australia so much. He kept saying kereta ni sedap bawak la, jalan highway dia best la and dia jamu mata tengok Australian cars. Me on the other hand sibuk enjoying the view, the clouds, the skies and the Australian houses. The kids were okay minding their business at the backseat. Sibuk menyanyi la (penat dengar depa dok nyanyi lagu yang samaaaa je), sibuk makan la, sibuk bergaduh pun ada. IY didn’t need the booster seat while Z had to be strapped in the car seat but he’s used to it, so it was no biggie for him.
I’m thankful that the boys didn’t get sick on this trip. From our previous travelling adventures, depa ni asyik demam sokmo. This time Z had a slight runny nose but that was it. Perhaps it because of the weather yang similar to Malaysia. And time zone pun sama. Tak de masalah jetlag.
Arrived Rockingham and we took a short 5 minutes ferry ride to the Penguin Island. We saw penguin feeding activity and jalan-jalan around the island for pictures, of course. Cantik sungguh beach dia. I just wish it wasn’t too hot at that time. Kalau tak, dah berpicnic dah kot. I originally wanted to go to Cottlesloe for some beach time tapi tak sempat lah.
It was 3pm when we took the ferry back to the mainland. We stopped by at the Rockingham Shopping Centre for solat. I saw Target and oh boy, I am one happy momma!
We went back to the apartment to freshen up and after Maghrib we went for dinner before sending Adam back. Dinner was at Makan2 Cafe in Victoria Park. They serve Malaysian food. The owner is a friend of mine I got to know from the Instagram, a Malaysian couple who now resides in Perth. Good food. The boys had roti canai and we had mee rebus and nasi goreng.
Lepas hantar Adam, we were done for the day. And that was only 8pm. Haha! Awal gila by Malaysian standard. But not in Perth!
Next — A day with the roos!
