Mighty Mouth's Travelogue - Part 2 of 3

Day 3 (Pemberton)

For the first time, Daddie and Uncle Dabao were awake earlier than I am. Daddie’s favourite hobby in Australia is chopping firewood. He could go on and on forever without feeling tired or bored. This time round, he had Uncle Dabao’s help to pick firewood, load them onto a wheelbarrow and have them “delivered” to our cottage. Daddie said that a thunderstorm is brewing and we have to be prepared for it.

After breakfast, we left Daddie and Uncle Dabao at the cottage to continue their “morning exercise” while the rest of us went for a tram ride. Wow Whee! It was my first time riding on a tram. The tram went “chug chug chug” into the forest and the cool, fresh smelling air soon engulfed me (hmm.. I wonder why those air fresheners labeled as “Forest Fresh” doesn’t smell anything like that)! Along the way, the tram stopped at a beautiful cascading waterfall. Mommie was such a dampener, she didn’t allow me to walk on my own or play with the water either.... *sigh*

We picked Daddie and Uncle Dabao up for lunch at a nearby trout and marron farm (don’t ask me what trout and marrons are, all I know is they sure taste yummy!). The adults went fishing while little me popped bubbles by the river banks. It was fun! There was lots of space for me to run around except that I don’t really like the feeling of walking on grass.

Day 4 (Pemberton – Denmark)

It was another day of long drive and we arrived at a place known as the “Tree Top Walk” and “Ancient Forest”. The tree top walk is series of a long metal suspension bridge (about 60m off the ground), connecting the canopies of the giant karri trees. We were so high up, I could touch the leaves and hang on the branches of the trees. Whenever a strong gust of wind blows through, the bridge will shake and rattle…. it was so exciting! Daddie allowed me to walk on the bridge all by myself as long as I do not attempt to squeeze through the railings.

On our way home, we shopped at the town’s supermarket for food supplies. Uncle Dabao wanted to get lots of Coke to make Lemonade Coke coz there was a lemon tree right outside our cottage and Uncle Bob (owner of the farm) said we could pluck as many as we wish! Daddie said my feet has suddenly grown much bigger and needed new shoes… so he bought me a pair of red shoes that are fit for trekking and snow walking!!

A hearty breakfast to kickstart my day!

Mighty Mouth's Travelogue - Part 1 of 3

Day 1 (Singapore - Perth)

I was roused from my sweet slumber early in the morning. Ah Ma was there to send us to the airport. I think she must miss me a lot because she didn’t stop planting kisses on my cheeks until a man in blue uniform came to chase her away.

I’ve always enjoyed my plane rides especially during landing and takeoff. The experience is likened to a roller coaster ride. Ok! Not that I’ve rode on a roller coaster before (remember, I’m only 16 months) but mummy reckoned that the feeling is similar.

My time on the plane was spent munching away… there was pumpkin ravioli, my favourite ice cream and spongy headphones!

I want more ice-cream!

Yummicilious headphones

Tomatoes (Finders Keepers)

I'll make pumpkin soup
out of you, Duckie!

Day 2 (Perth - Pemberton)

We took a long drive to a place called Pemberton. Mommie told me that it’s a big big forest just like the one Goldilocks and the 3 bears lived in. We felt like dwarfs driving through the Karri Forest with lots of giant Karri (obviously!) trees.

Our entourage (a party of 13, including little me) stayed in this really beautiful cottage at the Lavender and Berry farm. There were animals roaming around freely in our garden! I saw some alpacas (they too have only 4 teeth, just like me!) and a couple of miniature horses (one of them is called Muffin, the other Milkshake).

Being the kind little girl I am, I offered my ONE and ONLY banana to the horses… but Fatty Gramps said that they are too fat and cannot eat anymore. Too bad for them!

Look! No shoes are too big for my feet

Milkshake and Muffin are too fat.

G'day Lil'l Mates!

Yours truly has been so busy lately, i could hardly find the time to let my literary juices flow. My schedule for the past 2 weeks was packed to the brim with activities (now, this explains my 1 month absence from the virtual blogging community). For 2 weeks leading up to 11 May, Mommie was busy fussing over me, in preparation for my grand uncle's wedding. And, right after the wedding, we gathered our bags and whisked off to airport for a big happy family holiday in Australia.

It's my 2nd trip to Perth and with my increased level of maturity, boy, was it a totally different experience from the 1st! In the next few postings, i will try my hands at writing a travelogue with lots of pictures detailing my lil'l aussie adventure! Stay tuned!
