Heyyyy~~~~~ how ya'll doing? It was months ago when I went to Perth, but I still can't get over this beautiful place.

The clear blue sky, the warm and friendly locals and the amazing cafes!

I came across this balcony cafe, Moana Coffee when I was researching on cafes in Perth. The cafe is located in a restored heritage building along Hay St. Mall, where they share the building with an artists-run exhibition space. I love sitting by the balcony sipping on my flat white (AUD$ 3), while doing some people-watching.

Another favourite spot of mine at Perth is Polly Coffee Bar at Northbridge. The concrete coffee bar might seem like a pop-up, but they are definitely there to stay. They are strategically located at the Perth Cultural Centre. The coffee is ok, but the sandwiches are really good. If you love sitting outdoor, the coffee bar is worth a try.
Flat White (small) - AUD$ 3.70
Can't get enough of the outdoor and blue sky? Hop over to Livingston's Urban Jungle to enjoy a cuppa. I like how they have created a jungle-liked seating area next to their shop for the customers to hang out. It's very relaxing and this was one of the spot where Joe and I would hang out to get our coffee when we were visiting Perth. There are 3 sizes to their coffee (small, medium and large), and they offer toasties and bagels too.

We made a trip out of the city to Caversham Wildlife Park too. The wildlife park is located inside Whiteman Park, and you can either drive or take a public transport there. Since we did not rent a car, we took the bus to the park, and it was roughly 45 minutes bus ride.

The bus dropped us off opposite of the park entrance, and we have to walk about 1.9km (roughly 23 minutes) to reach the wildlife park. Seriously, the park is HUGE!!!!

Let the walk begin...

Spotted a group of kangaroos hanging at the bushes while walking into the park, and I strongly believe they are wild!

Finally, we are near the park after a looooooong walk! We decided to have our lunch before going to the wildlife park.

Chai Latte.

A mountain of nachos to compensate all the energy lost. XD

The admission fee into the park is AUD$ 28 per adult and you can check for further fees on the website. Oh ya, don't forget to pick up the map of the wildlife park along your way in. It includes the timing of their shows too, and you definitely don't want to miss any of it!

Get ready to snap away... Kangaroos are everywhere!!!!!!!!! They are too cute and I can't resist not to pat and feed them! The park has prepared kangaroo food for you to feed and interact with these cute creatures.

Wanted to take a photo with the wombat, but the queue was too long and I just gave up. Nevertheless, I still get to snap photos of some of these cuties.

Cute koalas~~~

Visited Molly's Farm for sheep shearing, lamb feeding and whip cracking. Yep, you get to volunteer and play with the whip... if you are bold enough! LOL

Stand too close, and they will nibble your clothes.....

There are a lot more animals at the park, and if you are lucky, you might come across some very active Tasmanian Devil in captivity.

Time flies when we were having fun. By the time we stepped out from the park, the sun was already setting. We actually spotted more wild kangaroos on our way out, but we did not stop to take photos because to be very honest... it was kinda scary to be the only 2 people walking across the park with the sky getting dark..... >.<

If you have a whole day to spare, Whiteman Park is a nice place to be. On top of Caversham Wildlife Park, you can visit some of the museums in the park too.
