Down Under

hack! hack!
I hate getting a runny nose.. first of all, your nose runs. (duh!) then because of that, you can't breathe out of your nose, so i'm breathing through my mouth, which is so uncool. i feel like a dog panting without sticking its tongue out because that dog thinks its a human being. haih..

Currently studying up on Perth, Australia. For Numerical Literacy, we need to plan a trip to a destination of our choice. we chose perth because i pronounced t in a funny way (good enough reason no?) Pe(r)th! haha! (Haram tak lawak pon)


See that red dot? That's where Perth is..

An interesting piece of info that I found out is that of the city's occupants, there are 18,993 Malaysians living there, making the third most abundant (is that the right choice of word?) overseas occupants living there, behind the UK (171,024) and New Zealand (34,661). These were the stats taken from the year 2006. Thank you Wikipedia!

Another interesting piece of trivia regarding Perth that i found was that Perth is one of the most isolated metropolitan areas on Earth. The nearest city to Perth with a population over 1 million is Adelaide in Southe Australia, which is 2,104 kilometres (1,307 mi) away. Perth is geographically closer to Singapore and Jakarta than it is to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. (Fuh, Kena pulau dowh! haha)

I leave you with some Perth sceneries..

Itik pulang tengah hari..

Aerial strike!

Nope, nope, Adelaide is much more better in the sense of everything...

you got these kampung-like cities, which means less traffic, less wild-hooga-booga people/foreigner (excluding me that is), less stress and more scenery. when i said scenery it's more than just taking your breath away, they might take your soul away too.

I wanna go Adelaide so much!!
