Sorry peeps I haven't been updating much at all lately... Seriously so swamped! Not only with uni work but also being a tour guide bringing mum they all around and just basically spending time with them or more like going shopping with them HEHE :P
Usually my routine when there isn't any visitors is after dinner, I'll head up to my room and spend all my time for the night on my mac but now with visitors around, I will sit and chit chat with them till it is bed time or do whatever uni work if needed. Hence, no time whatsoever to sit infront of my mac to blog.
I have been drafting this post since a week ago and still haven't had a proper time to get it up and going.. And since now I am on my sem break(which ends today... I wrote this a couple of days back HEHE I took my holidays literally! :P) and with mum back to Malaysia, I am freer for everything else! So here I am, back to update about my Tassie trip!! One at a time for now ok.. Tassie comes first then Lakes Entrance then the other bits and pieces :))
Tassie trip was on the 7th till 9th of September! 150 pictures coming your way! :D
Mum they all flew to tassie a day earlier than me and the boyfriend because we had classes on Friday. And so, we flew in just for the weekend! I have never been to tassie so I was quite excited! :D Honestly tho... a weekend trip only was really damn short..
We took the earliest flight out to tassie from melbourne at about 6am I think? And was in Hobart an hour and a half after that.
Once we've landed, the first thing we did was went to collect our car. YEAP! We rented a car for the weekend and will be driving!! So exciting for me ok... cause I've never driven in Australia before altho being here for the last 4 years plus.
Initially we booked for a Nissan Micra but they upgraded us to a bigger car which was the Nissan Tiida or better known as a Latio in Malaysia. And then I drove from the airport to our hotel! :DDD It was easy and smooth :) Just that Hobart's housing roads are like super duper hilly which was quite scary actually...
After settling down for awhile and after everyone got ready, we left out to Salamanca Market.
After walking at Salamanca Market for 3 hours, we left to Mount Wellington. Totally not in the right attire for the mountain because we thought we were going tomorrow instead but we suddenly decided to go up that day..
It was starting to get too cold and we've seen the whole place already so we went back down the mountain. Heading for early dinner :)
There was still another fish and chips but I totally forgot to take picture of it. And I reckon the fish and chips was pretty good!! Basically all the other food was alright lah.. Nothing very very spectacular.. Me being me, I just expected a little more..
Then off we went back to the hotel and called it a night. Because Hobart isn't exactly like Melbourne... things go quiet pretty early... say 5pm?
I think after that mum cooked for me instant noodles for supper while we streamed two episodes of Triumph in the Skies II. And then we called it a night. Especially me and the boyfriend were completely exhausted out because we woke up at like 4am that day.
Then we went to another market at the showgrounds but it was more like a secondhand stuff market which I didn't take any picture of. But still managed to purchase a new blouse for only $5 :D
Third stop, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
Next stop, Mona! Museum of Old and New Art :) but the funny thing was, we didn't go to the art museum.. we only went there for the view and to check out the winery hahaha!
Then we signed ourselves up for a wine tour :)
Next stop, drove back out to Salamanca and decided to have dinner there because from my research, the No.1 restaurant based on Urbanspoon, is situated at Salamanca.
But still couldn't cover the fact of all the saltiness we had!! Never had such bad experience in a long time. And the meal wasn't cheap ok... It was an average of $28 per dish ok... So disappointing... ):
Then we headed back to the hotel and just chilled.
Around 12am everyone was already in bed...
Woke up at 6am cause me and boyfriend gotta catch our flight at 815am back to Melbourne as we both have to go back to uni that day. Where as mum they all are still gonna be in tassie for two more days.
Packed our stuff and left to the airport.. but first gotta find the nearest petrol station to pump our car full first before returning it.
Once we got to Melbourne, we took the SkyBus and then the train back to Clayton. It was my first experience on the SkyBus HAHAHA! I've never sat on it before.. as I have always been driven to the airport straight by aunty D.
I stayed in Clayton for the next two days until mum they all got back to Melbourne.
And that concludes my Hobart trip!
I am hoping that I can get to posting about Lakes Entrance soon but from the rate I am going with all my updates...., I doubt it will be up that soon. I rarely have anymore free weeks from now up till exams already.. but but I have so much to update leh!!! ))): We shall see when I have the time lah okays?
Oklah... That's it for now. Ciao y'all!
Lots of love,
