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?

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
