I come from Bangkok Thailand to visit Perth WA with the AusWaThai culture project, for details click here.
The objective: Brief log of each day .. what I learn and what I teach about culture and exchange of friendship.AusWaThai focus is about people and friendship (not language and grammar)
Date 23/08/09Sunday morning flight TG from Bangkok to Perth, flight time was about 6.30 hrs, arrived Perth in the evening, been asked some questions by the immigration but all went well Dusi and khun Phill's mom Ms. Von came to pick me up at the airport and take me straight to Phill's home, mom is probably the best ( fastest ) driver for 72 years old lady in Perth! we finally arrived home, big & beautiful house, first time to meet lovely Lade, a blind dog... then meet n' pair, a funny and friendly girl and mary, another Thai student live in this house. We had a fun welcome dinner and chit chat for my first day in Perth.. quite cold at night time but had a warm and relaxing feeling... thanks girls! oh and a little cat Oliver too!
My second day in Perth! very exciting and couldn't wait to wake up to see the town.... its cold and cloudy day but feel nice. Dusi took me to walk around the house area and take some photos.. we walk to Swan river near by, what a beautiful view! many people come to take photos, jogging, take dogs for a walk... really relaxing atmosphere compared to Bangkok where I live caz there is hard to find the place to do such things.. this is one thing I like about Perth, less traffic, clean, fresh air hmmmmm... nice!We made Thai food, Lade and Oliver always around... not sure if they think it smells good or make them itchy on their noses!
Today take easy at home, made Thai breakfast with Dusi and also prepare for other girls when they are back from school, since I love cooking, everybody know where to find me then we do some house cleaning, its a big house but easy to clean up caz all are helpful equipments and well organized house..Lade & Oliver always ask for food with those pity eyes... but time to diet for Lade! but we like to play game " happy bottle " with Lade, she is such a happy and smart blind dog ever! Oliver like to sit in the sun watching us playing
Today khun Phill came back from Thailand, first day to see him in his house... he is very kind person and make us feel as our own house... thank you khun Phill... the girls took me to drive around Perth city, very nice and beautiful places... we went to the asian shop where we can find any of asian food, but I prefer my fresh market in Thailand This evening khun Phill's friends are coming for a party, we made Thai spring roll, Tom yam kung Nachos, and Pad thai, they are nice, funny and friendly people... and they seems likes our food.... phew!
Today went to the city of Perth with Dusi, n'Pair come to meet us and show us around... many nice shops & good stuffs, remind me of Siam Square in Bangkok.. all the shops here are close at 5pm... for me thats too early! I get used to the shops in Bangkok that they close around 9-10pm, so I like Bangkok more on this point In the evening khun Phill took us to see an Australian football game... sooooooo exciting! what a huge stadium in real.. WOW! it was a real excited to see all the players so close instead of watching on tv as usual! lots of people & sounds of people cheering their team.. cool! thank you khun Phill After the game khun Phill took us to King's Park to see the night view of Perth, what a beautiful panoramic view.....!!!

Today taking easy at home, make Thai breakfast and lunch, every morning khun Phill will come and talk about differernt stuffs, cultures, makes joke.. etc... make people at home laugh and feel relaxed.... thank you khun Phill....n'Pair came back from school in the afternoon, we took Lade for a walk, really nice weather today, no raining but still cold. I really love this town, not too busy and not too quiet, just right atmosphere.. In the evening we made Thai food, and khun Phill's friend drop by for chit chat, play video game with n'Pair tonight, was sooooooo fun!
Today mom came to pick me up, we went to the store to buy a new wardrobe.. they are huge stores in the same road, its interesting that they do separate different stuffs in each store and they all are huge..... its easy to find and less confuse but if you need more than one thing, you need to drive to another store and that's takes time....In Thailand we have everything in one place but ofcourse less stuffs but safe time... so there are always good & bad point everywhere...
Finally today has arrived! I, Pair and Mary drove to sunday market, they sell some beautiful used stuffs but we had a bad luck... not many people come today as its raining...So we headed to the city named Fremantle... really beautiful view on the way there... we drive around the city, many of beautiful old buildings.... feel so good! I love this city.. we drop to the big store, seems like a werehouse which they have many stuffs... cloths.. shoes... home decor... souvenir... etc.... quite cheap compared to the perth city.On the way back we went to the beach to take some photos... really cold and windy but see some people surfing in the ocean.... oh my.... make me feel freezing already just to watch them surfing!
Another easy day today, make breakfast for khun Phill, he always busy working in his office room, do lots of work at the same time... I have never seen someone work very hard and all the time like khun Phill before.... amazing.... Its time to do laundry today and some cleaning, mom drop by and had some chit chat, mom is a funny person, always tells jokes and make me laugh, lovely mom Pair is back home late afternoon, we went to the store near by and take Lade for a walk at the same time... happy Lade again We made Thai food for dinner, and one of khun Phill friend drop by, had some talking and good night all ....
Its weekend! went to the city with n'Pair, a little raining today but not serious, the wind brings rain come and go all day... this is Perth in the winter time...We went to Harbor town, another shopping area, most of them are on sale as the winter time will be gone soon... I see many stuffs like cloths, shoes... in Bangkok are more beautiful and more style than here... hmmmm.... maybe Thailand is a warm country so more various stuffs and more fun to wear

Woke up with rainy morning... we make Thai breakfast and lunch then in the afternoon went to Curtin university with n'Pair to find the building for her exam tomorrow... when we were in the university, we did walk on road but still keep walking aside... but seems not enough caz one of the guy drove over and tell me I have to walk on the side walk only, not on the road... ooops.... well.. I just got used to walk on the road in Bangkok hahaha.... thank you for telling me! another lesson of the day... so we decided to walk back to the car and drive to another building which is very far... oh... what a big university we are now....
Another rainy day... first time to see this heavy raining with strong wind in Perth, quite scary sounds of storm.. so I do some cleaning and laundry, play with Lade and talk with Oliver, yes I did... In the evening khun Phill's daughters came, Kate, Tessa and Kelly, they all beautiful and lovely, we all had pizza for dinner and watch movie together, another good evening I had...
Its sunny day today! khun Phill mow the front and back lawn quickly, he said he wanted to get himself out of the office room, stop working for a while and do something else... good idea, caz he always working! In the afternoon when n'Pair is back home, we drive the scooter to town for an asian shop, a little excited but fun even a little cold brrrrr...... but on the way back wasn't that fun.... raining again and quite heavy raining too! we wear helmet but didn't help! had to stop driving twice on the way back home caz its soooooo cold and we all wet! we needed to get home before its getting dark so we had no choice... driving our cute scooter home under the rain with less than 10c degree.... took us 1 hr to get home finally! thank god we are alive! another memorable day of my life! cheers n'Pair! hahaha.....
Woke up with the feeling of freezing from yesterday We make breakfats for khun Phill and had some chit chat as usual, in the afternoon khun Phill took me to the his insurance company office beside the Swan river, nice place with fantastic view! In the evening khun phill's friend, Frank drop by and more friends came, p' Aood, a Thai lady who is the president of the Thai&Australian association in Perth, she is vey nice and kind lady, very friendly and fun to talk with We are looking forward for Thai festival next week
