Sorry for MIA-ing for 2 weeks! I have been totally swamped with uni stuff and I just got back from a weekend getaway trip with darling and his uni/postgrad friends. We went over to Venus Bay and it was funnnnn :) I'll get to that post, prolly next week lah ok :P
For now, I should get the Lakes Entrance trip post out of the way as it happened a month ago HEHEH :D It was when mum and pa was here. Another family trip!
13th till 15th September,
Darling stayed over the night before and we adjourned our journey at around 10am. But we somehow took a wrong turn and lead us to a longer route so the journey took almost 2 hours extra..
And then we stopped by Sale for lunch. I urbanspooned to see what was good in Sale town and the only restaurant that caught my attention was Mister Raymond.
Enjoyed our lunch a lot! The waiters were friendly and the food was goood!
After our lunch at Sale, off we continued on to Lakes Entrance. And I drove from Sale to Lakes Entrance because the boyfie was already tired after an almost four hours drive. So I took over and drove another hour plus close to two hours.
Straight after we checked in and settled down our luggages, we went out to the supermarket to get fresh seafood to cook our dinner.
Then me and the boyfie went to explore just outside our room because it is actually a lookout point and wanted to take some shots of the sunset.
As soon as we went back into our rooms, we were greeted by the fishy seafood smell.. It was dinner preparation time.
And after dinner everyone called the night pretty early. Everyone was too tired from the long travel.
We drove to Metung after having breakfast in our room as Metung was having a farmers market that Saturday.
After exploring around, we went back into Lakes Entrance town for lunch. And of course whats a coastal holiday without seafood right?? More specifically, fish and chips!
After this we went back to our accommodation which was only a 5 minutes drive away.
Then we went to the nearby jetty to capture to sun setting sky.
There wasn't anything else to do after that so we went back.
Dinner that night was instant noodles and all the other bits and pieces that we brought from home. But then it wasn't enough, soooo me and dear and may yen jie went out to KFC and tapaoed 18 pieces of wicked wings!! OMGGGG! Wicked Wings too yumsssss man!!!
Watched movie in bed with the bf on my iPad and it was a long long night cause the two of us can't sleep....
After breakfast and checkout, we went shopping!!
After feeling satisfied with all the buyings, off we got into our cars and started our journey back to Melbourne. And this time, we also stopped by at Sale town for lunch.
We wanted to try some other restaurant but none was open except for Mister Raymond. So yeappp..., we went back to Mister Raymond again. But the food was pretty good the first time so I didn't mind going back at all! :D
After lunch, we went vitamins shopping at chemist warehouse because they were having a huge sale. And after that, we drove back to Melbourne. This time, Jie took over the wheel while me and the boyfie slept.. hehe
We've decided to have dinner at Sofia's in Camberwell because aunty D and pa and jie hasn't tried their food because when mum and aunty jaime tried it the last time, they loved it, so they said we have to go back there to eat. So yeaps.. anyways I haven't been back for quite a long while already.
Only three HUGE dishes for 7 people! And we were filled to the brim ok! Their portion has always been to hugeeeeeee!
After dinner, I drove the bf back to Clayton because I was the only one who knew the way without the GPS and also took him to grocery shopping since we had the car so he could get more things that usually he can't because normally we commute to clayton by bus. And then dropped him back to MA, chilled awhile and I then left back for home.
It was so stressful to drive back on Princes Highway/Kings Way...!!! There were so many traffic lights!!! And cameras and speed limits and all that... I was so so stressed out! I know the way home perfectly well but the traffic lights totally got to me.
By the time I got home, I felt so relieved! Altho, it was quite fun to drive in Melbourne as it was my first! :D
That's it for the trip! Time passes by so quick!! I remember waiting impatiently for mum's arrival and now, she has came and gone. Now I shall wait impatiently again till she comes again next April! And also my annual year end trip back to Malaysia :)
Till my next update! Byeeeee!
