perth trip 2009

went w K. it's nice to go w an ex-housemate because you know each other's routines and quirks. going with K was alot of laughs as usual.

the tiger airways flight to perth was delayed by 3hours. K had woken up late and had hastily packed and ran out of her house. she thought the trip was NOT going to happen bec she was going to miss the flight. BUT... the flight was delayed. so all that adrenaline that she had was for nothing.

JW and her housemate kindly picked us up from the airport. it was very nice to see JW again after all this time. it has been 1.5 years! time flies...

the next day was spent in the city. the cat buses were really good (and free!). saw king's park and the botanic gardens. saw Bells tower. hang out at some shops.

at this short Kokoda track was a steep set of steps. there was this 50-ish man walking up as we were walking down. then when we were at the bottom of the steps, he was walking down. and as we walked up, he walked up too. puzzled, i asked how many times he was going to do this. he said, "20, i'm working out for papau new guinea" wow... it felt like a good workout. i was pretty tachypnoeic at the top.

the boa tree

the DNA tower... and of course, i couldn't resist but to climb it. 108 steps apparently. another bloke had ran up and down in 58 secs...

the bells tower. literally to house bells. they apparently weigh 40tonnes. when they r rang, they weigh about 136 tonnes. that's why they need a tower
