Univ of WA, Fremantle & King’s Park

Previous post: The Way Back To Perth

Date: 2nd September 2012

On the 3rd day of our stay, we decided to do Perth and Fremantle.

First stop was at the University of Western Australia:

 

We stayed at the Malaysian Student Centre (or was it just a Malaysian students’ house?) near this campus¬† when we first visited Perth in 1984.

 

This time,¬† our friend, Pa’Aron was to meet up with a couple of his former students:

 

We had a guided tour of the campus. Another photo shoot:

 

 

Nice quadrangle (for the Faculty of Arts, if I am not mistaken):

 

Came across a peacock:

 

We continued to walk:

 

I found this old tree very attractive (imagine myself on a swing, hung from this tree!):

 

The final destination, before we walked back to our car:

 

We later went briefly to The Fremantle Market. Being a Sunday, there were just too many people. We felt hungry and hurriedly (though caugft in the jam) to taste the famous Frematle dishes:

Seafood and chips!!

Got some of our dishes:

 

Fish, cuttlefish and chips:

 

Tummy tucked, we took a walk at the nearby area, and I met a local lass:

 

We had another place to visit, so we hurried back to our car. DH managed to snap this pic with both banners – one claiming to be The Best Fish and Chips, and the other claims to be WA no.1 fish and chips! Cicerella and Kaili’s, which would be your choice?

 

Our final destination was the famous King’s Park!

 

Now with some new attraction (as compared to 1084).

 

I tried to look for the giant clock, but obviously it is no longer there :(

 

 

We went back to our hotel for a quick rest.

We then went to this halal place for dinner:

 

Met 2 students there:

 

Nice chow, for sure!

 

The following morning we took the AAX flight back to Kuala Lumpur. That was a short (3 night) outing, indeed!
