Perth: Down Under Kangaroo Land 🦘🇦🇺

Perth, Australia is almost like a 2nd home country as most of my family members are in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane & Sydney. 

1st trip was when I was 4 years old and i remember celebrating my 4th Birthday there with a home-made Mickey Mouse birthday cake made by my Aunt Sylvia Was also enrolled into their Kindie during our stay. 

Ever since then, i would be travelling to Perth almost every 4 years especially nearer to Christmas with my Granny (did about 7 trips if my memory does not fail me). 

Below are some of the amazing places that you should not miss when you’re in Perth:

If you’re staying on a landed property via Air B&B, do get some steaks 🥩 and have a bbq. We had a superb bbq luncheon hosted by David and Linda at Mandurah. Had the chance to grill a couple of steaks too.

If you’re looking for Halal Malaysian delicacies, there’s several Malaysian Food Stalls and restaurants to try as well such as Little Malaysian Cafe for your breakfast or tea time and Malaysian Dining Delights for Luncheons and Dinners. 

We try to visit our relatives before we head back to Malaysia and as usual, there will be a lot of makan-makan. 

Some throwbacks as well..
