Rui Ping is in Perth! ♥ 1:00 PM


I can't believe it! Like RP is finally here:)

14.07.2008 (Monday)- I didn't know that the custom will clear so fast so I think RP got pissed when I wasn't at the airport to get her. Or maybe she seriously thinks that I forgot her which I really didn't! Anyway, she is in good hands:)

Came back home to put her luggage down, rested for awhile then we are off to Henry's and Debbie's home!

Still can't believe my darling RP is here with me for 10 straight days!
Photobucket

Lotsa food
Photobucket

Then Pr Chang asked us to present a hymn since RP came from faraway. And yes, Stan is still here:P I think he loves Perth too much!
Photobucket

After a long day, it was K.O back home to prepare for the big day the next day!

15.07.2008 (Tuesday)- SHOPPING! Harbour Town and city with Tash and Liz:) Crap day though. It refused to stop pouring! But regardless of the weather, we did some awesome shopping! Had lunch at The Vietnamese restaurant in Northbridge.

See RP is so happy.
Photobucket

Came home and shower and we are off for the BBQ at Michael's place. By the time RP and I reached there, most of the food is gone because I got the time wrong+ more delay on my part-.-

I don't know how come I don't have pictures. I'm guessing that the shopping high left me and I was crabby. But yeah, we played till late then got kicked out of the multi-purpose hall. Proceed to Ken's home which is 2 minutes drive. Played Scrabble till we got too noisy then we moved over to Ben's home. Continue playing Scrabble while some people helped Ben clean up his house(as usual guy's home are messy) and some watched movie and SOME people KEEP ON playing bridge that I fell asleep while waiting for Big two. Till very very late.

Super tired the next day when we had brekkie at Hungry Jacks. See Xiao wei's and Vince face! She's stoning!
Photobucket

16.07.2008 (Wednesday)- I had to do some stuff so we stayed at home for the whole morning while RP rested since she has to redeem sleep time. Gave lunch a miss.

Still crap weather but I was hoping that we can catch the sunset at Cottesloe beach. Went to pick up Shu Ling and went to beach in the rain. Ok, you can see how desperate I wanted to show RP the beautiful sunset. Unfortunately it was too rainy and cloudy hence can't see sunset. Next time ok?
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Rushed off from beach to Korean BBQ because Ben, Stan and Ken was there and we were meant to have dinner together:)

Doing what we Asian chicks do best... Pose with food!
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Entree: Yuk Hwe(Marinated raw beef with egg and pear slices). Taste very interesting i must say. And you can see I'm pretty happy since I finally got to eat Korean BBQ:)
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Had some beef, pork and cow's tongue(Hyo Kwe). Then we realised after the BBQ there was so much oil:S
PhotobucketPhotobucket

The 3 girls
Photobucket

I think Korean BBQ in Northbridge has the best Korean BBQ! Expensive though.

Introducing Icy ice. I hope RP likes it:) And yes, it was freaking cold outside yet we are eating ice!
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Then we moved on to King Park to view the beautiful night view. If there is anything to be proud of Perth, I guess this would be it.

Photobucket

Brrrr.. cold! At the war memorial in King Park.
Photobucket

17.07.2008 (Thursday)- Swan Valley!

I'm RP's official driver tour guide slave.
Photobucket

Had bible study in church in the morning then a sumptuous lunch prepared by the parents:)
Photobucket

Bought Pr Chang along too:) 3 cars went, Vince, Ken and Ashton.

Vince is a pimp! All the chicks in his car.
PhotobucketPhotobucket

1st stop: Margaret River chocolate factory although we are only in Swan valley.
Photobucket

Taking pictures of ourselves while waiting for Ken who got lost even though he was following Vince's car.
Photobucket

Vince's GPS indicate we have to change 2 lanes across...

Me: Hey, I think Ken is in the wrong lane, do you think he saw us?
Vince: He should know what, even Ashton saw us.
Me: But Ken is very blur... I don't think he saw us!
Vince: Aiya, confirm can see one lar.
(Traffic turns green)
Me: Uh, I think Ken just passed us.
(Behind people including me frantically wave at his car when he passed by)
Me: -.-

The other cars passing us must be thinking that we are insane.

But it's all good, Ken's car reached safely to the destination. Super cold. Brrrr...
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Yummilious chocolate:)
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Everybody attacking the chocolate fondue!
Photobucket

Moving on to destination #2, wine and cheese tasting. Didn't stay long because we ain't alcoholics anyway:)

Then to honey where all 10 of us squeezed into the tiny shop!

The scenery along the way.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
PhotobucketPhotobucket

It started raining again:( Was driving the twins, Xiao Wei and RP and they started doing things to my window:S Ikea meatballs!
PhotobucketPhotobucket

18.07.2008 (Friday)- Off to Fremantle:)

Wanted to shop around Shed E market but Vince Tan Sheng Yi decided to go his way and he ended up in another market which I wanted to go a bit later. Hence they had to wait for us at Cicerellos for fish and chips.

Shed E
Photobucket


At some random yacht dock. The wind was so strong I was so worried that RP will get blown away!
Photobucket

Finally meet them at Cicerellos! They renovated the toilet and now it is so pretty:)
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Fish and chips!
Photobucket

Now, the actual Fremantle market!
Photobucket

Photobucket

Came home feeling super tired but then I had to go church. I'm such a good girl:)

19.07.2008 (Saturday)- Day of rest:) Spent most of the time in church while I get Ben to drop RP off in city for her to help the Australian economy.

Then went to pick her up for dinner at Retro Betty. This place is as Aussie as you can get.

YUM!
Photobucket

We waited like about 1 hour for our food. While waiting, we played bridge again. All Vince's fault. He started the trend. Even I who wasn't interested in it was sucked into it.
Photobucket

After that we proceeded to Northbridge to have bubble tea. Actually, I would love to go home since I'm so tired but I can't give up on bubble tea. Love it too much:)

20.07.2008 (Sunday)- We achieved so much today.

Welcome to my uni! I didn't notice how pretty it was. I love my uni even more now:) Maybe not the studying part though.
PhotobucketPhotobucket

PhotobucketPhotobucket

Matilda Bay just across the street from my uni.
Photobucket

We then headed for Subiaco market so that RP can continue her crazy shopping.

Muahaha, caught in action!
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Had Subway for lunch at Cottesloe beach because of the beautiful weather.
Photobucket

Then we saw this when we turn our head around-.-
Photobucket

With my dear dear RP:)
Photobucket

Cute or not??!!
Photobucket

21.07.2008 (Monday)- Went for a bush walk at Mundaring. This day was so interesting I believe it deserve one whole entry!

22.07.2008 (Tuesday)- Still getting over the excitement we had at the bush walk. Only went out at lunch time to Shimizu with Winnie and Daisy.
Photobucket

Hands itchy so when to Winnie's place to play Mahjong before getting ready for Ciao Italia! It's so good:) Especially the tiramsu=)

PhotobucketPhotobucket

Forgot to take a picture of it because it was so good so here is another from the last time. SOOOOOoooo awesome!
Photobucket

After that was Burswood! Had drinks there while chit chatting with Indery, Inda, Tash and RP. You guys says the weirdest things!

Super late when we got home. But I have to check the weather on my computer because somebody wanted to go wildlife park.

Me: Eh, RP, tomorrow raining.
RP: Still must go!
Me: You sure or not?
RP: Yeah.
Me: Ok.

23.07.2008 (Wednesday)- So we are off to Caversham Wildlife park early in the morning! It was a glorious morning:)
Photobucket

Some of the stuff I saw.
PhotobucketPhotobucket

We saw this Owl couple. There are actually eggs under them! Decided to take signs instead since the animals wouldn't keep still enough for us to take nice pictures.
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Did you know that the Kangaroos are actually so small? I always thought they are as tall as me! As you can see, we were both pretty scared of them in the beginning. Then RP got braver and decided to kiss a Kangaroo to see whether it will turn into a prince or not.
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Being surrounded by Kangaroos is not funny! RP keep on taking pictures and not save me while the evil Kangaroos surrounded cornered me!
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Koalas! To tell you the truth, after 2 years in Australia, this is the first time I seen a live Koala. I decided that they are not as cute as tigers! I want a pet tiger!
Photobucket

RP was taking a random lamb and a goat was resolved to be in the picture too! You should have seen RP's reaction. Super funny! And Dingos, bunnies and piglets! They are pretty cute=)
PhotobucketPhotobucket
PhotobucketPhotobucket

Big fat Wombat. Another animal that I never set my eyes until today.
Photobucket

We finally finished walking around and was in the Souvenir shop when it started POURING! We were stuck in there for awhile until we are too hungry and decided to run to our car. The weatherman wasn't kidding when he said storm.
Photobucket

Went to Northbridge to Vietnamese food in Vin hoi. Had so much Viet food lately!
Photobucket

After lunch, we went to get some noughts for RP to bring back to Singapore. Oh, and apple strudel! Yums:) Then went Coles for some last minute shopping.

Went home so that RP can pack because at night, we are going to ZEN! My room is super messy!
Photobucket

Must put makeup before going! Just for the fun of it:)
PhotobucketPhotobucket
PhotobucketPhotobucket

PhotobucketPhotobucket

Preparing to go out!
Photobucket

Asked Ben whether he wants to join us or not because a few days ago he asked me and I declined. In the end, he couldnt resist the temptation and bought Aaron along too! Couldn't place Aaron's face although when Ben introduced RP and me, he said we had met. 0.O

Stupid, the whole dinner I kept thinking and thinking where I met him and all the time chatting amiably with them. Thank God that I'm a woman, I can multi-tasking:) And you know me la, don't know people still can talk a lot. Blame my dad, his genes.

Yummy sushi:) Sea Urchin sushi is nice right, RP?
Photobucket

Anyway, I finally got my answer when I step out of the restaurant. Aaron used to put extra sushi on my plate in Jaws where he works whenever I go with Stephen or Ben. I know, I know, how can I forget somebody who is so nice to me. Aiya, he wears a hat while working and besides, I don't go around staring at boys, you know.

24.07.2008 (Thursday)- Last day that RP will be here! Must go shopping again! Drove to Garden city for RP to do some last minute shopping!

Then after that rushed off to airport to check in and have lunch at Red Rooster and then, RP is off!

Feel both sad and relieved. Sad because my dear dear friend is leaving, relieved because I don't need to crack my brain to think where we can go. Perth is so small, it's pretty hard ok unless you are travelling up North or down South!

We go there next time ok? When we have more people:) And can't show you everything or you will not return! Haha, hope you enjoy your trip despite the crappy weather. RP, do you know it hasn't rain since you left!

Can't wait to see you in Singapore! *Muacks*
