The "Nausea" Drive Up Great Ocean, Melbourne

Day 3 - Great Ocean Road 12 Apostles

My sons went to arrange the day tours in one of the tour agencies along Swanston Street, Melbourne.  They came back with a package of 3 day tours with one free attraction for $300 per person.  We requested an English speaking tour guide and it is a bit more than the Chinese speaking ones in Chinatown.

The next morning we walked to Grand Mercure Hotel around 7.30am to wait for the pick-up.  And our journey started around 8am and that was the starting of our 4 hours "nausea" journey up the Great Ocean Road, one of the world's scenic coastal drives. 

  The long and winding road up the coastal and up on the hills...
Along the way, the bus stopped for us to take some pictures....
The tour guide told us that this is just the initial stage.... 
The way he put it, he said this is "rubbish"... meaning... there is nothing compared to The One...
The "rubbish" he meant is spectacular to us!
Aaron went down to take some pictures...
The rest of us were "resting" on the bus... trying to keep the "nausea" from our throat... urghhh...
Yes, it was a long and winding road and we felt like throwing up...
But we managed to "control" our nausea by swallowing some tablets .... 
And taking a light lunch here... 
Taking a breather.... 
Walking around in the cool air helps to control the "wind" in our body...
Andy relaxed by chasing after a bird... I forgot the name....
He certainly feels like a small boy again doing this...
I also felt much better after consuming the tablet...  I really hate Vomiting!
Love this picture and their spike hair... hahaha....
Then the journey continues for another hour....
My kids called the drive a Nightmare! 
 LOL....

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
