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...

    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.

  4. Can see from your photos must be very windy and quite cold. Are there many snakes around that you can spot one so easily?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
