Going to Perth was a real treat for princess and I. The trips we usually take are to Ireland to visit her grandparents so this was really a bonus. It was winter in Perth or rather just the start of it and weather-wise it was lovely, not unbearably cold. Just a cardigan kept us nice and snug.
It was a relaxing holiday together with my dad to visit my sis living there. Princess got to spend lots of time alone with Yee Yee as she usually comes home once a year and her schedule is pretty tight, with many friends and family members wanting to spend time with her.
Perth is wonderful for kids as there are lots of open spaces for them to run around and basically, just enjoy Mother nature. In Singapore, we are couped up in the flat most of the time and thus kids don't get to have free play.
This picture was taken from the balcony of our serviced apartment. We enjoyed a glorious view of the Swan River. At night when the street lights came on, the depth of the reflection in the river was truly magnificent. Facing us is the financial district, just like our Shenton Way. There is a ferry service that takes us across the river. It is very cheap. Something like A$3 per adult one-way. Return would be double that amount.
