End of 2015

Image
Time flies ~ and the NY will be on us faster than a cape-wearing man flying in tights ~ It’s somehow at the last 2 days of the year, which means it’s time to  start finishing up for what is on your hands and prep for the new year ~
Experience and time changes the way we look at things ~ Attitude and trust changes the way we look at human beings ~ I guess at this age, we loses friends more than we make new ones ~
But still, the true one stays ~

2015 is another exciting year ~
Reflecting a year which i spend it overseas backpacking in the South America ~
One bucket list down that enrich me with so much of travelling ~

A year i have been looking forward to getting this HMDP award ~
and travel out of my comfort zone to another country for training ~

At the same time when our father of Singapore pass away ~
I never knew that i que up for a whole night just to thank him in
that couple of mins for everything that he has build for us ~

Follow on by X 2 BKK trips with bestie then family ~
when the whole MERS …
First week of HL gone ~ Day 9/180
记得你是 孩子,你难过,就哭,狠狠的哭。 午夜梦回,随你便,然后再忘记你是 孩,
站在太阳下,就要懂得什么是坚强。
Today is Day 1/180 ~ I will be strong!

Hainan Medical Mission

Image
I have never been on a medical mission ~ Hence in Nov 2015, when the opportunity presented itself, i went on my virgin medical mission ~
For the past 7 years, this Hainan Smiles operation has been on-going in  Cheng Mai County, in Hainan Province, China, to operate on patients with cleft/craniofacial problems aiming to enrich the lives of them who may otherwise faced social difficulties due to their physical handicap and have been outcast from the society.


   I didn’t know what to expect when i arrived ~
While i’ve travelled over some "still developing" countries, this would be
an entirely different experience. I was excited and nervous for what might come and what the demands would be, both physically and maybe slight mentally ~
I was not really train in plastics (clef lip) before hence its was a challenged but luckily,
i have some background and roughly know the instruments since i do head & neck in GS too ~
Now is to learn the steps of the procedure. They are only doing 2-3 s…

Richmond Bridge

Image
The Richmond Bridge is a historic bridge in Richmond, 25 km north of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. It is the oldest bridge still in use in Australia. It was built over Tasmania's Coal River from 1823 to 1825 and was used for the moment of military police and convicts between Hobart & Port Arthur. It is said to have been the site where a desperate convict committed suicide and where, in another story, a cruel overseer was set upon by the convict workers and thrown off the bridge.



Salamanca Place is one of Tasmania's best known landmarks With dozens of restaurants and shops, Salamanca Square, nightlife, pubs, artists, galleries and craft shops to suit every budget plus the famous Salamanca Market every week ! But sadly we miss that particularly Saturday when it comes alive ~




Dating back to the mid-19th century, the splendid St. David's Cathedral is the centre of Anglican religion in Hobart. With outstandin…

Cadbury & Mt Wellington

Image
So who dont like chocolates!
But again to my much disappointment ~
there was no tour around the Cadbury Chocolate Factory except for some slides presentation which was totally not even worth the 4bucks we paid for!


Decided not to be disappointment again! We head up to the Mount Wellington ~
It is officially known as Kunanyi / Mount Wellington as a mountain in the southeast coastal region of Tasmania, Australia.The mountain is the summit of the Wellington Range on whose foothills is built much of the city of Hobart. The mountain rises to 1,269m (4,163 ft) above sea level ~
An enclosed lookout near the summit provides spectacular views of the city below and to the east, the Derwent estuary, and also glimpses of the World Heritage Area nearly 100 km west.
Finally had our dinner at a decent place beside the dock ~ Seafood it shall be =) Recommended to all!

Hobart

Image
Last stop Hobart ~ It is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania ~ Hobart is Australia's second oldest capital city after Sydney, New South Wales ~ We are going to spend 5 nights here!
This is my first time staying
in this "use to be shopping mall turn motel"
You never know we may be staying in an "LV" shop =p
The disadvantage is there is no windows except the "big shopping window"
which kind of looks into our privacy ~

.

As we came at the wrong season which the lavenders are still a little sprout ~ We managed to had a bite at the lavender cafe!

Driving on, we went to Devil's Kitchen, Tasman Arch which was kind of boring as we really cant see much stuff from the top !
At the southern end of Pirates Bays are some very interesting coastal features. The Devil's Kitchen is an unusual rock formation carved by the sea through the sheer rock face of the eastern coast of the Tasman Peninsula. The Tasmna Arch is a short strol…

Swansea

Image
Our next destination is SwanSea ~ i love the sound of the breeze in my ear ~ facing the ocean,
with a new breeze blowing with a world refreshed by freedom
Its a happy day because there are flower petals
in the breeze look like a butterfly flapping its wings =)


We plan the itineary well as we though there was no fantastic food in Swansea
and we though there was no cooking utensils for a cabin but it turn our to be
a real surprise! So in the end, we need to clear our food and here you go ~

Have been waiting for Oyster feast for breakfast ~
but oh well, again was disappointed with it ~

Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay!

Love the broadway way at the Cape of Tourville Lighth…
