Melbourne Trip 2001 – Day 11

  • woke up literally @ dawn 8 am
  • bathed, ate leftover Shanghai noodles and 2 num loong pau
  • met friends Ann and Chris on the way out
  • Boarded the Gray Line bus to Menzies Creek where we took a couple of pics with the Puffing Billy. I felt like a sakai.
  • Bussed on to Warrook Cattle Farm. Had a $22 homestead lunch. *sob*
  • Took couple of pictures of friendly but greedy horses n peacocks.
  • Walked around, saw our 1st sheep, it greeted us with a *mehhh* so cute!!
  • Went into the fields where the sheep’s were. Guy explained about his doggie Jack and its duties. Jack rounded up the sheep.. even bit one of ‘em.
  • Went for a hay ride *ka bump* to see sheep shearing (it stinks there *euw*), then to milk cows. Tasted the milk straight out fresh. I tasted horrible, it’s very warm, somehow I feel disgusted by it, maybe it’s because I don’t really like milk, however my gf liked it
  • Hay ride again to play with the kangaroos. Saw one lonely wombat on the way, tho the sign read meet the wombat family. The Kangaroo’s were cool. It ate right outta ur hand, they were very friendly. Living harmoniously with the kangaroos are some geese and ducks, the geese are freaking fierce while the ducks are, hehe, nice to bully, we chased ducks into the water..hehehehe
  • Left farm, went to see koalas on Phillip Island. All I can say is, koalas are lazy all they do is eat, sleep, and shit. You’ll see the shit on the ground everywhere. Cute, nevertheless. Huge mosquitoes. *ouch*
  • Saw some great scenery near the Seal rocks.. WOW. Bass Strait separates the mainland and Tasmania. Saw the Nobbies a rugged rocky blunt mountain-looking thing. Very very beautiful.
  • Went to see the penguin parade. Damnnnnnnn coldddddddddd wore 4 layers of clothing.. brrrr kinda disappointing coz so few penguins showed up seems that they have not much reason to come up to shore in winter. We did see a few near their burrows, bout 4 5 of them. The thing that I notice is that they’re pretty stoned, I’ve seen couple of them standing dt the same place for a long time.
  • Time to go home, we had a sucky dinner in some lousy Italian restaurant. Souvenir shop bought fluffy penguins for my gf and meself..
  • On the way back to melb, we saw BEAUTIFUL stars like in a belt.. damn bright.. stretched vertically, not just flat out in the sky. Something like it rises from the horizon and spreads towards the sky, beautiful, simply beautiful!.
  • It took us 1 ½ hrs to reach home sweet home zzZzZzZZZzzzz
