Amazing Marine World Nobbies Centre, Phillip Island

Penguins only come out at night, so we were told... their eyes cannot take the bright lights, it will spoil their eyesight. To while away the time, the tour bus driver took us to two tourist places. One of them is Maro as in my previous post and the second one is Noobies Centre.  We stopped by here to immerse ourselves in the interactive displays and explore the specatcular coastal scenery from the cliff top boardwalks.
Getting down from the bus and into the sunny and cooling weather...
 
If not for this picture, I wouldn't remember the name of this place...

She is using the ‘seal spy’ cameras to zoom in on the seals....
All oceanside view along Phillip Island... 
Somebody is really relaxing here...enjoying the cool air sea  breeze...
 Watching the waves splashes by the seashore...
The sand were very fine and soft... I feel that I could fly... 
Just for show... Hahahaaa....
Cool guy enjoying the wind...  
My Do-Re-Mi... Someone is starting to feel the chill....
We were told to walk on the pathway and not on the grass... 
If we don't follow instructions, we might be bitten by snake... ahhhhhh.....
Just enjoy looking at the scenery.... 
Just like in the postcards, the scenery is breathtaking... 
Can stand here longer if not for the time factor and the weather...
My son is not bad in photography, huh... 
Credit goes to my old faithful cybershot Sony too! 
 Cover my cold ears... or was it that my hat might get blown away...

I remember this picture... taken by one old couple who happened to pass by...
She asked us whether we wanted a picture to be taken together....
So nice of her....
I was told to climb up and sit beside my kids...
But after a few tries, I gave up... 
I wouldn't want to land on the other side of the shore... 
LOL...

  2. oh, i didn't know that penguins only come out at night because their eyes cannot take the bright lights!! i thot as long as they are kept in a place with the right temperature then that's it, at least that's what i've seen before in some zoo (forgotten MY or SG already)..

    1. I am very clumsy one you know... and I am afraid of heights whatever... here is what I found out..
      Penguins have very sensitive eyesight so white torches/flashlights cannot be used, nor camera flashes, so our experienced and knowledgeable guides take groups of visitors into the colony after dark, equipped with specially adapted dimming red torches which provide a softer light than white. It is also believed that Penguins don’t see the red spectrum so our torches do not bother the birds. Since we are in the colony at night time the camera flash is very disturbing to the penguins, so we ask that your camera flash be turned off whilst on the tour.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
