DrSinga pun suka ‘Bokeh’

After getting off from the city tour bus last Saturday, I straight went to Tesselaar Tulip Festival in Silvan. It was the last day of the festival this year.

Eventually, I lost my umbrella in the train to Belgrave town.

But the experience to capture thousands of colourful tulips in the festival was priceless. Cool.

Had the bus all to myself (Silvan to Belgrave). Nope. Those are not rubber trees out the window. Lol.

Immigration Museum & Melbourne Aquarium

Located at Flinders Street, I visited the Immigration Museum. The entrance fee is eight bucks, cheaper compared to the Melbourne Aquarium’s of thirty-two.

Nonetheless, inside the Aquarium I can snap pictures of penguins and other aquatic animals as I like, contrary to those living in Phillip Island. Cool.

Across the road, there is the Melbourne Aquarium.

Wali Songo

Last Saturday I visited the Great Ocean Road to the popular Twelve Apostles, the Gibson Steps, and Port Campbell. It was a day-tour and I enjoyed the scenic landscapes, and beaches very much.

The title is nothing to do with this entry. Pardon me.

Eureka Tower

Last Monday night (after work), I managed to catch the sunset view on top of Eureka Tower (297.3 metre), the second tallest building in Australia. Before that I thought I could view it from the Observation Deck of Rialto Tower (the previous tallest tower in Melbourne) but it is closed to public now.

I didn’t dare to try the Edge and the windows reflections made the photography session as an unpleasant experience.

Note: by comparison, our Petronas Towers is 451.9 metre high. Cool.

Churchill Island

After jumping off the steam train in Menzies station, we went to Churchill Island to visit a country farm.

There we were taken to farm ride, watch demonstrations on cow milking, and sheep shearing. We were also got the opportunity to meet wallabies.

Later, we went to the Koala Conservation Center just to see many sleeping koalas. Cool.
