Freo

Joe said that the western aussies love to add an O behind when they abbreviate names or places.

So Frementle is known as Freo among the locals.

Apparently, Frementle was one of the earliest civilisation of British settlement. It's a port city and it's well known for seafood.

Frankly speaking, in the future if I were to settle down in one place, I would definitely choose the one with sea nearby. Somehow it felt so relaxing to look at the sea. For no appareny reason, I just like driving along the road by the seaside and I find it enjoyable.

and living nearby sea = fresh seafood! XD

That's why I loathe Kuala Lumpur so much. :P


Camwhored around the sea port of frementle.

and going to Frementle without tasting its fish 'n chip would be like going to Penang without eating char kuey tiaw and laksa. :P

So we went there around lunch hour on a Sunday.


Initially we decided to have some fish 'n chip in Cicerello's however Joe said it's abit oily.


So we went on to Kailies' Fish Market as recommended by some other friends to steal have a bite on some fish 'n chip.


This ultimate seafood experience attracted a crowd there as you can see. People were everywhere.



The dining area was just located right next to the sea with seagull flying around. Thus the umbrellas to avoid S.O.Y (a new term i learnt. Guess what's that? :P)


We ordered a seafood platter and a chili mussels. To tell you the truth, it was the best fish 'n chip I ever had. No chilli sauce or sour cream or pepper or what ever to enhance the taste, eating it alone was good enough. Having a hard time to chew as the fish was so smooth that it skidded around my teeth! :P and trust me the seafood is free from fishy taste. (The kind of taste is in every single seafood in KL)  


These are the seafood I didn't get to eat. :P Which one is your favourite? XD


Frementle Market. The angmoh pasar XD


On a beach nearby, took some photo with the seagulls! They weren't afraid of human at all :P


The well-preserved 19th heritage building. Honestly speaking, it felt a little bit like Georgetown in Penang. 


Drove around to camwhore.

Oh ya, don't forget to visit E-shed market if you happened to go there. You can get really good deals for some souvenir :)


the trio in freo. This was taken at a memorial park nearby.


Oh I think I forgot to tell you throughout the days in Perth, I traveled around in this limo. Cool huh?


Last but not least, a quiz for you (so that you will leave some comments :P). This is a city nearby freo, how do you pronounce it? :P (and for those who stays in Perth, especially Cockburn, please don't reveal the answer so fast la. Let people guess ma. :D)
