I'm beginning to feel sad.. Trying hard to refresh my memory and experiences for the past one week.
Yes, it has been one week!! Can you believe it??
Sigh... I miss home, yet I miss my hol, I miss my family and friends yet I miss the scenery here. I just dun miss my work. That's all.
I'm now sitting next to the wharf, looking at the sailboat, under the sun, doing nothing. Accidentally chanced upon the free Internet provided here. Time now is 4.30pm.
Great weather, though abit of a sun.
Woke up in the morning at 7am when the sun rose. The sun rises up at 6 plus everyday! And sets at 8 plus in the evening!
Then went to the city to find breakfast.. Settled down for egg Benedict.. Portion was huge! That actually settled my bkfast and lunch. Opposite of the cafe is a book store. And I went in, bought a book! Again!
Then went to salamanca market. This market opens every Saturday morning till 3pm. Lots of stalls.. There's souvenir stalls, food stalls, fruits and Vege stalls, books stalls, flowers stalls, silver ware stalls, honey stalls, jams stalls etc...
A whole week of "restraint" shopping ends here! Hahaha! Bought a huon pine 木头 bowl for my dad. And some souvenirs for colleagues and frens (you will know what they are when I return heehee..)
And cos I sotong left my sunglasses in the coach ytd, I got myself another pair. Ate ice cream, again! Hahaha!
Legs tired (wallet also tired), went back to hotel. Put down the shopping stuff and I went out again.
Hearing some people whom I met along the way, how cradle mountain is worth visiting for more than a day, I decided to cancel my day trip, and book on two days stay myself.
So I went to the Visitor Center (very helpful service - you can ask them about tours available, ask them to book accom, find out directions of other parts of tassie etc).
Booked a two night stay at cradle mountain (discovery holiday park) for next week and got a two day pass to the national park.
So my next week plan will be:
Monday: transfer from Hobart to Launceston by bus
Tuesday: day tour to lavender farm and berries farm plus a visit to the winery
Wednesday: take a bus to cradle mountain. Will reach there in noon.
Thursday: still at cradle mountain
Friday: transfer via bus from cradle mountain back to Launceston.
Saturday: flies back Singapore
Brief update just in case I dun get Internet at Launceston!
After booking next week stuff, I wandered to get a cruise trip for tmr. To Bruny Island! Also heard many people saying great things abt this trip. So 经不起诱惑的我 booked this trip too!! Bleah...
Then I've been sitting by the wharf ever since.. Watching the bridge opens and closes for the yacht to go out of the sea...
