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.

  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?

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
