Perth from Oct. 15 ~ Nov. 18, 2013

Never expect that I will stay so long there. It just happen. No hurry for any travel or plan. The life just beauty..

First, I got my first couch in Carlisle. My host Chris and Mike are very hospitality.I tasted the traditional way to eat Tim Tam with chocolate milk. Kangaroo BBQ, Lamington, fish and chip in Flemantle.( I tried Vegemite in Melbourne and didn’t notice most of the foreigner didn’acept them until I met other csers here) The first time I cook beef noodle soup and made paper roll for my host. They are very kind to prepare the meals for me and show me around when they are free. so I have the night view along swan river, kings park and the cottesole beach. Mike like gardening. I got the chance to enjoy the Rose perfume. Chris like reading and she gave me one book to read to understand Aussie slang. I also spent some watch the TV program with them. They also drop me off to the couch surfing gathering. so I had very relax life for 11 days with them. I treasure so much.

Due to the bad weather, I did’t get the chance to go fishing with Mike. But the last Saturday before I leave Perth. Finally We went fishing by boat in Rockinghan. Surprising, I got more then 10 fishes. Mike let me drive the boat for a while. That’s very special experience.

Second, I met Martin when I took the ferry from Barrat dock. Then we have several times nice date after that. He like to have my accompany and I enjoy that. We went to Safety bay, cape peron in Rockinghan, Mundaring weir in perth hill, and enjoy the breeze and sunset in the night view in kings park. The last day in Perth, we got together to the beach, perth hill. I enjoy the time he hug me , hold my hand. That’s part of my best memory in Perth.

Third, of course couch surfing gathering. couple time of gathering but I always too quiet. But I am a good listener. Try to catch , to understand more as I can. Also join frizbee gathering, beach volleyball. sports is always exciting. It’s funny that we have the day trip with some of them to Penguin island the next day. Chris from canada prepare nice food for all of us. So sweet. The pitty is that we didn’t see Penguin there. (haha... It’s differentthe joke that we didn’t see monkey in Monkey mia) The other trip to south with Roberto just by accident. just deside within 1 hour before my departure. Also funny, we slept on the car for two nights. Enjoy the forest in Leenwin National park, winery in Margaret river. Some nice beach in yallingup , saw whale in smith beach, cape naturaliste saw lots of kangaroo. He is lucky found someone uo to Broome few days later. He also stay one night with me at Xiauling apartment before his trip.

Fourth, very relax time stay at Xiauling apartment with Lotta after our trip to Monkey Mia. Free Perth wifi anywhere in Starling Park, George Church. Reading, watching TV, sleeping in the apartment. Doing nothing is kind of relax. Here have lot of good meal with Xiauling and Lotta. Special discount Pizza, every Friday international food festival, Xiauling cooking for Us. Or I use different kind of spicy, noodle from Xiauling apartment. Cooking is kind of my favorite hobby when I stay there. slept on the couch with sleeping bag in the luxury apartment in the city center with nice view. Costless for me to stay in the expensive city for 11 days.

Fifth, nice weather. Very comfortable for me. breeze and no so much raining. haha... Campare to Melbourne which 4 seasons within one day.

Fremantle 2013.Oct.8 ~2013.Oct.15

Fremantle is a lovely town. There are red, blue CAT free bus running per 15 minutes around the town. Out of old firestation packpackers hostel is a stop. Also near the train station. It’s very convenient for me to go anywhere.

The first day arrived here is with Jase where he busking. Maybe it’s week days. Not good for Jase to get tip as before. At the same time, I met Sofia on the street where Jase play guitar. It’s lucky for me that Sofia also stay at the same hostel. Thanks Jase to bring me to the hostel. Finally, I said goodbye to Jase for 2 weeks trip from Victoria to WA.

Walking around south beach, enjoy the nature, breeze from the ocean. smell of ocean.  seagull fly on the sky. At the costal, green lawn with colorful flower. That’s the other enjoy. reading, ling on the ground. Enjoy the day.

When Fremantle market open on the weekend (from Friday to Sunday), that bring the town more busy. Saw more interesting street performers on the street. That’s busker’s heaven. Also the people enjoy the days. Inside Fremantle market is also different surprised for me. Different food, fruit, vegetable were found here. More exciting is the time before closing, you can get very cheap price. I got one bag of tomato, apples were 1AUD. Stay at hostel, I got plenty of time prepare my three meals. People always said to me my breakfast is like a big dinner. Jase also said to me what I ate is two times over then him. haha... I enjoy the time preparing my 3 meal and having meal. That’s also the important part of my journey.

The last impressive are the live music at the art centre. I am so lucky to catch the timing for the live music on the sunny sunday afternoon. All the people just enjoy the day listening. The display on the art centre also nice. simple but unique.

The last night , I saw dirty dance movie at the hostel. After that, I got the chance to listen the packpacker play guitar and singing at the backpacker hostel. There are so many surprised during my trip. That’s the amazing night I have. Just love it.

Enjoy the busking on the street. Always bring me good mood.
some place allow the musican did the busking. That’s cool. Not only the busker joyful but also bring all the people pass by pretty good mood. People dancing along their performance.

Due to my couch surfing friend Jase, I have more chance to see and appreciate those musican busking. Very special experance for me in Australia. Awesome!!

The age of busker from children to charming 50 years old person. Big range as long as they are willing to show their best to the people on the street. The instrument from guitar, drum,electric guitar, harmonica, cajon, foot cabasa, symble.... So many interesting thing happen during my stay in Australia.

So far, in Melbourne, albany, Margaret river, fremantle saw the busker. Some are local people, also meet the busker from Taiwan, Japan... I am pround of them.

I would love to be there in personal. ever through about study spanish in argentina for 1 year. but finally subtitute by Spain for 3 weeks.

Life is short

Polly had pass by for almost 10 years.
She was my best friend, classmate in the university. full of so many unforgetable memory with her.

*Create english club . she was the leader and I take care financial in university.

*Familiar with nearby club members ( moutain climbing club, astrology club) ,therefore stay at English club is the happiest time I have in  university. adict , visit there is my  routine job.

*Part time job teaching  Primary School student.

*Travel around

*exercise ( jogging , tennis , hiking )

*accompany me to overcome the hard time when I suffer the mass (broken) relationship  between my parents (they argue, fighting, hurting...)

*Join most of Dancing Party in university, listen to several speach, learned Chinese Art painting

*Take many English , Japanese lessen together. ( Germany, Franch just episode )

In the night of Nov. 2002, it was a nightmare, one truck hit her when she finished the class and rode scooter on the way back home from Graduate school. Suddenly her life totally gone without any warning. Life is so weak!!

Expect future ? Appreciate the moment what we have, do what we want to do right away. No need to pitty ourself. As we never know what will happen the next second. that's inconstant  life.
