Visit to Bright Day 1

Last weekend we went to this place called Bright, which claimed to be one of Victoria's most attractive tourist destinations. The reason being, every year in autumn, the town and surrounding countryside transformed into a canvas of colors where trees ablaze with red and gold, a breathtaking display of shades.

With that description in mind, we went there with expectation.

Unfortunately, we were 2 weeks early. The season just started. The trees is still green, with few hues of yellow and red. So much for autumn scenery...
Anyway I did manage to catch a glimpse of what it should be.I bet in another 2 weeks time, Bright is going to be bright and beautiful. How I wish I could be there to see it.

Actually jalan2 kali ni was more like 'Rombongan Cik Kiah' melawat Bright. There were 14 families in this trip. Got itenaries too!! Dah lama tak ikut rombongan melawat2 ni...
So, the first itenary was to visit the largest hedge maze in Australia (that's what the signboard says). To make the visit more interesting rather than just going round and round in the maze, there were prizes for the 3 families that can find their way out from the maze the earliest. So being the uncompetitive family that we were, we just walked and let Amirah took the lead. Not surprising, we were the second last family that came out of the maze (ingatkan yang last sekali..hehe..siap berposing2 dalam maze lagik..) Anyway, it didn't matter that we did not win, because Amirah was having a good time being lost in a maze and finding our way out!
  • Hedge Maze

Di celah lorong2 dalam maze

On one of the two towers (mcm LOTR la plak). Ber'background'kan the top of the maze.

This is how the maze looks like from bird's eye view. Notice the 2 towers in the middle?

Next stop, apple and chestnut farm. Too bad tak leh nak apple picking here, Amirah and Taufiq dah geram2 dok tarik buah apple tu..and adala err few ter'picking' jugak.. but I just pretended the apples jatuh naturally on the ground hehehe..
  • Apple and Chestnut Farm

"Can i pick this mom?"

So, this is how chestnut looks like. Macam mix buah rambutan and buah getah.. if you are kampung enough, you will know mcm mana ropa nyer buah getah (from the rubber tree).

Dah tak leh apple picking from the tree, pilih and beli from here jer lah nampaknya..

Dah settle kat apple farm, we stopped by Bright town kejap.Very clean and nice town. Macam pekan koboi pun ada jugak..
  • Bright Town

After that actually we went to trout farm. Memancing ikan trout. Only one video shot taken, gambar2 tak sempat nak ambik.. yelah..sibuk jaga Taufiq yang asyik2 ada cubaan nak terjun kolam je..he..he..

So, end of day1 jalan2. Next entry pulak cerita lagi :).

Good bye Anis

Anis,Amirah and Aiman

The only kawan perempuan melayu yang sebaya and quite close dengan Amirah kat sini, and she's going home for good. This picture was taken on Anis's final night in Melbourne, just hours before her flight back to Malaysia. Before going to her house, Amirah asked me to wrap a present for her friend, the item being one of Amirah's favourite hairbands. She said that she really likes the hairband and she hopes that Anis will like it too. Yes darling..I'm sure Anis will love it.

Keep in touch and take care Anis. Amirah will miss you. Good bye.

How to Save a Life

How to Save a Life - The Fray

Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
And you begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Great Ocean Road trip

All the pics actually were couple of months old ... apa nak buat zaman2 malas nak update blog dulu... but the scenery was too breathtaking not to be shared. These were taken along the Great Ocean Road, the stretch of road that covers some of the most scenic coastline in the world, because of its striking and dramatic natural rock formations.

Nature has ways of creating beautiful things. Here are some to share with you. Enjoy.

Most famous rock formation - The Twelve Apostles.

The 2 of 12 Apostles

Semua formation batu2 ada nama2 tersendiri. Like this one behind Ihsan, is called London Bridge but was renamed to London Arch in recent years after the 'bridge' partially collapsed.

Gambar2 kat whale viewing platform in Warrnambol. Unfortunately, bukan season whale datang bertandang. Ambik gambar jer lah.

I've been tagged by my friend Konot .. and it was a zillion time ago ..he..he.. entry yang dia tagged aku pun agaknya dah takdak kat front page blog dia ..:P Sorry darling .. I've been away.. :)
So here goes .. 6 weird things about me..

1. I like to memorize script from movies. I mean not the whole thing.. but part2 yang aku rasa best. And i can like watch it over and over again...

2. I have this one favourite buku cerita melayu.. Which dah berkali2 khatam.. and yet i still cry kat ending dia sebab watak dalam buku tu mati ..and err.. nama watak tu 'AYU' ..he..he.. and actually after she died, there's another chapter, but i refuse to read to rest of the chapter, sebab ada cerita husband dia macam jumpa orang lain..he..he.. for me, the book end when 'Ayu' died...

3. I get tachycardia after i drank coffee. I'm not sure if the term correctly describe what i felt.. but it sort of like rapid beating of the heart. But lately, i think i drank too much coffee .. my body was getting familiarize to it. I hardly get tachy anymore nowadays.... Somehow, i kinda missed having it..

4. I have this looking into nothingness habit. Macam termenung.. like i have to stare at one spot for sometimes.. and selagi that feeling of 'looking' tu tak habis.. i can't stare away. Kalau ada orang like kacau before aku 'habis' staring .. memang rasa cam tak best betul aa...

5. I have short term memory loss .. aku selalu lupa where i put all my stuffs like jam tangan, keys,handphone and handbag ... actually it's more like bad habit of letak barang merata2... but seriously, (he..he.. aku pun tgh layan grey's anatomy ..) sometimes baru jer 2 seconds letak.. and i kinda forgot aku letak kat mana.. seriously... he..he..

6. Okay..i'm running out of weirdness.. he..he.. perasan .. but just to complete number 6..he..he..
aku ada sorang kawan yang high/suka main hujung kain ..well aku tak reti xplain, but if wanna know kena visit blog dia sendiri aaaa... dia explain panjang lebar..and i have this one friend yang kena goyang kaki sebelum dia tidur .. so when the kaki stop bergoyang meaning dia dah tido aaa tu ... ada jugak yang bila on high places, dia akan jadik gayat and terasa nak terjun..he..he... bahaya betul... and i wonder if word 'Teritip' still send goosebumps to you? .

*sigh* i miss you guys .. my weird but lovely friends .. keep in touch okay.
