Perth - The Search for a House

January 20th, 2010 by kamkuey

Ok.. I have had these photos uploaded and ready for blogging but did not find the time for posting a new blog. So in the calm of this morning’s lull.. I had better get it done first :p
They really do have really nice houses over there.

For the price of a double storey link house, you get a nice single storey bungalow house. For the price of a double storey semi-D, you get a REALLY nice bungalow over there. Of course, dollar to dollar. We had some time so we went browsing for houses.

Photobucket

Most of the houses have got a driveway. Most of them..

We went to a show village. A whole area filled with showhouses from various builders.
Photobucket

There were lots of them there. And apparently…. these show houses, once they are done, you can buy them… lock, stock and barrel!! can you see yourself living there? I would not mind driving up to one of these after a hard day’s work…
Photobucket

I would not mind. They are tastefully furnished!!

Photobucket

Photobucket

There are one or two.. actually two.. double storey showhouses. But mostly they prefer single storey homes.
Photobucket

And they love their garden. However, their gardens are usually at the back. This is a shot from the front tho..

Photobucket

And they love openess. Everywhere you see large glass doors or windows. This is from the masterbedroom. the doors open up to their own garden. So it’s still private and you would not have strangers walking up to the glass door to see what you are doing in your master bedroom. Only your housemates can do that.

Photobucket

See.. large doors/windows.

Photobucket

More large doors and windows. This is one of the show houses.. the view from the back patio.

Photobucket

Large doors and windows… from the living room.. and kitchen

Photobucket

Another house with large doors and windows.. note the BBQ stuff outside?

Photobucket

The Aussies love their BBQs.

Photobucket

I would love BBQs if I have their weather… and their cheap, yet juicy and tasty beef cuts..

Perth… Part 2

January 13th, 2010 by kamkuey

I think it is best that I separate my Aussie trip into several parts. Otherwise it would be a long wait for a blog entry. As always, I am guessing that the Aussie trip entries would be more photos than words, which I think is best lar. hoh? Some of the photos, I have uploaded to Facebook previously. So some of you might have seen some of the photos here before. But what the heck, Facebook and Kamkuey.com ..not the same mar….
Photobucket

This is the view of my uncle’s backyard.

Photobucket

Another view from just across the street from my uncle’s house. A park just next door. How nice :)

Photobucket

That’s me… with a cap soo small for my oversized head. Aunt insisted that we brought along a cap each. Sound advice as the sun over there can be rather harsh.

Photobucket

With not a cloud in sight.. and a cooling weather with nice cool breeze, you would not realise that your skin is being cooked by the sun.

Photobucket

A warning sign before you enter the pathway. Apparently the land down under has got the most dangerous/poisonous creatures anywhere.

Photobucket

It was a lovely morning… and we had a really nice walk in the park… and bush

Photobucket

Photobucket

.. and thru wide open fields

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

I thought this retaining wall was interesting.. so I took a photo of it :)

Photobucket

Went to Fremantle..

Photobucket

Had fish and chips here…I am not too sure that the lines are for. But I am guess to barr the birds from landing directly unto the umbrellas/tables.
Photobucket

Photobucket

the famous fish and chips. Not so nice lar.

Photobucket

Lots of.. erm.. birds waiting around to pounce on unfinished food

Photobucket

At Kings Park.. the spiral DNA tower.

Photobucket

And the view from the top of the tower.

Photobucket

And we took a stroll through the park. We did lots of strolling and walking in Perth. Weather permitted walking. Here, you would loose a pound or two from sweating!!

Photobucket

Interesting tree. Like ultraman uprooted a tree and poked the three back into the earth upside down.

Photobucket

Lots and lots of flowers everywhere. Even wild flowers growing on the side of roads and around your house. Here, it would be weeds, weeds and more weeds in between lalangs!!

Photobucket

And then we walked some more.

Photobucket

A community mall… looks like Alamanda in putrajaya… or rather.. alamanda looks like this community mall.

Photobucket

a RM12 cup of coffee

Photobucket

Me with the RM12 cup of coffee

Photobucket

A monastary…. that’s my elder brother.. who somehow came into the frame as I was composing.

Photobucket

Errr.. I do not know who this is, but I thought this pic is nice so I posted it up :)

Photobucket

Aaah.. so peaceful here.

Photobucket

Not the bird park. Still at the monastery. This fella and some of his friends came during lunch. haha. It’s a very nice and tranquil place.
Ok.. here ends part 2

Will work on Part 3 soon :) Will be blogging about my trip south of Perth.
Check back soon ya?

Photos from Perth…. just a few

January 12th, 2010 by kamkuey

Sorry guys, I know some of you have been waiting to see some photos from Perth. I have uploaded some to my facebook profile but I guess I should also update my blog with some. Unfortunately I do not have the full set with me. But no matter, I do have a few photos in my notebook. Will update with Part 2.. or possibly Part 3 soon.

These are various shots, in no particular order. All taken with my trusty 5mp Ixus55 :)

Photobucket

First day in Perth. A bunch of us going for a morning walk at a park which was just in front of my uncle’s house. How nice :)

Oh.. I have to tell you guys this. My flight to Perth was at midnight. Which meant that I would touch on in Perth and walk out the airport door into what I thought would be a cold chilly.. and dark… 5am or 6am. So I bought along my jacket/windbreaker which was rather thick. Wasted. I walked out Perth’s airport only to be greeted by the glorious morning sun which casted long shadows. Dem.. I should have taken a picture.

Photobucket

Dem I look fat!!!

Photobucket

The glorious clear blue skies!!

Photobucket

Path meandering through the park… and the clear blue skies… glorious!!

Photobucket

Dem I look a bit ’soft’ here.. hahaha

Photobucket

Better angle??

Photobucket

The park.. very well taken care of. Lots of flowers.. so nice.

Photobucket

This photo was taken when Perth was about 35 celcious. It was hot!!
So, this is about it for today. Have to dig into my archives to find some more photos :) Check back tomorrow for possibly another update :)
