I was saying how I miss Perth and L quipped, Why don’t you relive it…, and my face lighted up thinking he’s about to suggest another holiday, before he continued, …by WRITING it down.
Face falls. Can’t believe I fell for THAT.
But I suppose it is about time I got started. Even Michelle (whom I didn’t realise was reading) reminded me during our Whatsapp chat, Waiting for your blog…
ERM, HELLO BACKSIDES! :D
L and I spent a wonderful nine days in Perth during my birthday week.
It was both our first visits to Perth and if we thought Sydney was laid-back, Perth was even more so. There is very little human traffic even in the city and in the suburbs, you don’t see pedestrians along the road for up to a good 15 minutes of driving sometimes. Some may say it’s boring, but to us, the remoteness is an attraction itself :)
When we arrived, my cousin Michelle came to pick us up from the airport despite her mountain-load of assignments and upcoming exams. (Thanks, Michy!) During our time in the city – i.e. when we were not in Margaret River – we stayed at my aunt’s place. They made us feel so at home and so comfortable we felt like we could just live off them forever.

Took a short stroll in the lovely neighbourhood

We settled in to some home-made chwee kway and entertained ourselves with the Wii in their entertainment room while dinner was being prepared. That night, we had a sumptuous tom yam steamboat dinner with white wine – the perfect comfort food for post-flight exhaustion and the cold.
I miss the M Tans already :)
