When I was planning the itinerary, it forgot that Freo Market only open on weekends. Our trip was from a (late) Sunday to Thursday, so obviously we missed it lah!
We had an early checkout at 8am and terus pick up Adam kat college. We drove straight to Fremantle via the suburbs. This time tak lalu highway, so our driving view was the houses and kedai and schools and playgrounds. Sukaa! Gee as usual dok belek perati kereta orang sana. Asking me to snap each and every car that he likes.
We reached Fremantle and first thing’s first — Target! Haha. Last kopek to look around apa yang patut. After the quick spree, packed the stuff we bought and we walked around the area looking for the famous Kailis Fish and Chips.
Baru pukul 11 lebih masa tu so the place was not crowded yet. Waiting time pun tak lama. We ordered the seafood platter and fish and chips and memang licin. It was so sedap. The place banyak sangat seagulls and we were warned not to feed the birds. The boys apa lagi, kerja nya kejar burung je lah.
By the time we finished lunch, Adam had to go back already. Dia ada class and had to catch the bus . We bid farewell to him and walked somemore around the place. Found a playground and as usual the kids begged to play. So ok layan je lah. They really enjoyed the parks there in Perth.
By 1pm we made a move to the airport. Supposed to return the car back to the collection point at 2.30pm. Distance from Fremantle to airport lebih kurang 1 hour. Arrived airport just in the nick of time sebab ada sesat sikit entah Waze bawak ke mana. I love you Waze but sometimes you are crazy bawak we all masuk celah kilang mana. Haha!
Lepas return kunci kereta, we all checked in and went for solat. There is a surau at the airport. Memang sebijik macam surau kita kat Malaysia. Complete with the wudhuk area inside. I didn’t know ada tempat wuduk at first. Sibuk la pegi toilet dulu. Cuma bezanya di sana takde partition asing laki perempuan. So kena pandai-pandai la cover jaga aurat.
Perth airport is small so takde la jauh sangat nak berjalan from one spot to another. Everything went well from boarding to landing. The kids behaved in the plane main game and watching movies. Masa landing IY was sleeping and suddenly he cried sebab sakit telinga. The steward gave him a candy to suck on and he felt much better after.
So that’s it. I’m done with this travelogue. So happy to be able to finish it cepat sebelum terlupa.
If you ask me, what was the highlight of this trip? 2 words — the kangaroos and the park. I think the boys will remember these two things for quite some time. Well, at least until our next destination. Yes, it was challenging travelling with them with the penat lah, lapar lah, sejuk lah, panas lah, nak dukung la, but the adventure with them is so worth it. Make memories, cherish the time and explore the world they say. Looking forward to more travelling with the family.
IY saw me typing these entries and he asked me “mama buat apa tu?” I told him I’m jotting down our travel stories so that when you and adik grow up, you can read this and remember the places we went. He smiled.
P/S: Me and hubby received a hand written note by IY — “Thank you mama, thank you ayah, sebab bawa abang pergi Perth.”
And I just melt.
