the quay & the fringe

So finally yesterday we had a free time in the afternoon and went to check out Elizabeth Quay. Apparently this place and the Fringe World is at the moment the most happening ones in Perth! 😀

Perth is my city and I love it 🙂 ohdearria.com image

Though we live in Perth, we rarely went to the city part. Sometimes it’s hard to find time after all those sport activities during the day, by afternoon either we are too lazy to go out again or we are busy with house chores and homework stuff.

  Elizabeth Quay is located on north shore of Perth Water and centred on the landmark Swan Bells. It is named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. It’s free to the public, featuring the stunning inlet connected by 1.5km of board walks and promenades, children playground, kiosk, food trucks and beautiful views back to the city. People can get together and  have a picnic or just enjoy the view. Yesterday was pretty much chalk a block with people. I suppose it’s week-end and the weather was lovely. At 8pm there’s laser show, though the show is nothing compared to the one in Hongkong!

Second most talked about is the Fringe World. Fringe World is an annual multi-arts festival featuring artists and acts from international. There are circus, cabaret, music, comedy, dance, visual art,   theater and film. Basically Fringe World is celebrating the summer vibes.  After the summer holidays have ended, Fringe World keeps the summer going in Perth for 31 days of entertainment. Today is the last day of Fringe World.

 Well, we had a beautiful evening. Kids enjoyed their swing ride and we had dinner at the very nice Vietnamese restaurant called Roll’d. If you happen to be in Perth, try this cosy Vietnamese gourmet restaurant.  Everything is yum and the price is reasonable. The owner is my friend, but I don’t get any special treatment and this is not a sponsor post😜

Hi I'm Ria! A hippie heart and gypsy soul mama who loves plants, yoga, blue and white chinas, thrifty finds, occasionally I like to bake and cook something delicious for my teenager twin boys and le hubby. On this blog, I'm mostly rambling about my every day life as a mama, wife, and human being, sharing my piece of mind and some good and not so good photos. Because I'm not a professional photographer or blogger. Just a blogger mama wanna be!😜 So, if you like what you find here please stay with me. If you don't, just close this page and no rude comment, as simple as that. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoy reading my stories. xx
