Rundle Street East In Adelaide

AS THIS IS A RELAXING AND LEISURE GETAWAY, we did not plan anything in advance.  I really don't mind if I just laze around in the apartment or going out for short walks around the vicinity, it really suits me real fine!  NO more waking up calls at 6am in the morning and dragging my legs up to the hotel room in the late evening like those tour groups which I have experienced those days.  Thank goodness I was younger then.... and now, I prefer to go for these free and easy trips... no more time commitments and rushing from one place to another.....

We slept early the night before, replenishing the "lack of sleep" we lost the previous night before and we woke up fully refreshed and ready to start off our second day in Adelaide.  After our hearty breakfast in the apartment, we set out to Rundle Street again, so much to "look and see"... well, with over 1000 retail stores and services, it seems to be a never-ending walk for us...  I really don't mind taking our own time walking leisurely, the weather was simply fabulous.... cooling and yet not windy... very nice!
Before we set out, here I am in front of the apartment hotel...
Oh, I think I was not the only one there.... 
Obviously someone was waving from behind.... 
No sweater on the second day... 
Weather was around 16 to 22 degrees as we set out.... 
From our hotel to Rundle Street, it was just a five to seven minutes walk....
Oh ... er... unless we stopped every now and then to take pictures, it is again a different story...
The railway station is a short distant away from our place....
Along the subway... I mean pathway...
and soon we reached the intersection leading to Rundle Street pedestrian walk...
It was more crowded on Tuesday than the previous day....
Leisure walk was what we did and enjoyed, no time constraint...
Another musician here on the streets...

This reminded me of Ipoh... 
But this is Rundle Street Coffee Central...
And me at 127, Rundle Mall....
Someone is getting ready to shop!
While it was fun to shop and relax.....
We wasted no time busy connecting to the outside  world such as Malaysia!
Cyber Cafe on the Streets!

  1. Ooooo...I loved those buskers overseas. Some of them that I saw were really very very good...and of course, I would give them a bit for their effort. I loved browsing around the shops there too, just browsed, not buy...everything there was way too expensive, couldn't afford. Would just spend on food, eat the stuff they had there - not cheap either, but no choice.

  5. if not mistaken I thot I once heard friends who have been staying in Australia, that Adelaide is a city for the elderly, haha.. so what are you all young girls doing there?? sure nice to relax and follow your own pace when you go travel, afterall it's for "leisure" so don't need to "bok meng" lor :)

  6. What an awesome walk! You had lots of willpower to avoid the coffee stall. Now that you are retired, you are what we call "a lady of leisure".

  9. It sure looks a nice place for walks and window shopping at leisure. Love the blue sky and nice buildings. Wouldn't mind spending time sitting and watching people going by especially when the weather is cool.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
