Two things checked!

It is less than a month away from our Perth vacation! And I am so excited about it. Hubby has been browsing a lot of sites to check for places of interest for us to go while there. There are quite a number of places that I wish to go if our budget permits.

Some of these place i found from Kenny Sia's must-go places in Perth.


Perth City, Fremantle, Swan Valley, Margaret River, Wave Rock, Pinnacles Desert and Caversham Wildlife Park


And we have ticked two list out of things to prepare before leave for Perth.

Place to stay - The Witchs Hat Backpacker; AU$35/person/night x 2 pac x 9 nights = AU$630.00 (10% deposit and amount due payable during check-in)

Visa - MYR35/person x 2 pax = MYR60.00 (bought at travel agent office)

While hubby does the searching for places to go, yours truly on the other side has done what every girl knows best. Clothes hunting! Since it's expected to have rather cold weather during our visit (below 17 degree celcius), I might need a good jumper or leather jacket or perhaps a trench coat. But I think, a good jacket pair with Pashmina should do just nice. I wanted to get a leather jacket but the ones that I spotted was kinda pricey and gonna burn hole in my pocket. Fortunately, the mannequins at MNG were waving at me to come in. Voila! I got my jacket there! So make that 3 list ticked.

We haven't get around to go to change our Ringgit to Australian Dollars. Well, to quote the hubby; "we can always go the weekend before we leave for Perth". I hope by that time the Forex is just good enough for our barely 5K budget.

  6. Eik, I put a comment, hilang ka? hehehe.. Anyway, I was saying how nice your jacket looks and how you can layer if it gets too cold.. And don't change money at the last minute, they always run out.
