GREAT OCEAN ROAD TOUR 1





last saturday, we went for the great ocean road(GOR) tour..... it's a day tour .... we collapsed as soon as we reach home at 10pm....

It's the most hoo-ha tour or it is a MUST GO tour if you in melbourne..... just enjoying the scenic view along the great ocean road!!

aiya..... but have to wake up at 4am to get ready for the tour as we need to catch a train to the city for the pick-ups....

i paid AUS$45... yeah... half price of it's original price......but everything is conducted in MANDARIN!!!!!!.... okay, im just a beginner in my mandarin ,probably, starting to enter into amateur stage..... HOWEVER, after the tour, i found out that my mandarin totally suckss!!!!!!!! maybe worse than a beginner!!!!!!!

well, as usual, i couldnt wake up at 4am... snoozed till 445am and get a bit panic as we need to leave from the house by 530am....

Mrs. Loh packed our food for lunch and breakfast and also tea time!!!!!... we brought pastries, kransky, cakes, breads, juices, water and rice for lunch....

as we soon leave from the house, the weather looks gloomy and i had this feeling that it's gonna rain.....

we caught the train at 608am and guess what .... i start to camwhore in the train!!!!
















we reached at FLinders st at 642am and we quickly walked to the tour agent .....

we are one of the early birds there.... and later..... more and more ppl swarming in front the shop and 99.99% are chinese.....

time is very precious in ozzie land.... they said must leave at 8 am sharped..... they really meaned it!!!!! or else... we will be left by the bus!!!!!!.... not like in Msia... 8am means 830 am or porbably longer!!!!

as soon we get on into the bus... me and my bro have this sleeping war!!!!!... we slept till we reached our 1st stop... Bell's beach!!!!..... bah.... it's starts drizzling outside!!!!...and it's really cold....































it was really cold... the wind was so strong and u felt like been blown away!!!... bah..... am i exaggerating?????.... not so serious la... but it was really cold as it was raining !!!!

it was just only the beach .... the tour guide was explaning why it's called Bell's beach.... but you know... it's a chines-guided tour .... so, i couldnt understand at all but just enjoying the c\view of the beach.....

after that, we departed for our next stop ..... Appollo Bay, for our lunch .... but before that, we stopped at an arch indicating we will be riding along the GOR!!!!































well, most of the time, we were on the road....we only have a short time outside to take a few photographs....

it tooks us around 1 hour to reach our next destination.... Apollo Bay.... a small town which only populated by only less than 1000 people.... but along the way to Apollo Bay, the view was magnificent..... and yeah.... Chi Mei, a friend of mine who always travels to Oz, told me to sit on the left side of the bus to enjoy the view !!!..thanks gal!!!!!

We stopped in Apollo Bay for lunch for an hour.... we look like a hungry hyena and ate as fast as possible to explore the small little town..... well,.... during our exploration. we were swarmed by the thousand handful of houseflies!!!!!!!!















the township of Apollo Bay















attacked by the houseflies!!!!















beach view fr apollo bay!!!















i noe.. im getting fatter oledi!!!!






























jus camwhoring in the town near their saturday market...




























































my bro looks nice in this pic.... he looks so kiddie...















ok... i look like a big fat moron!!!!!

after one hour, we departed the city and headed to the magnificent 12 apostles!!!!!!!.... along the way, i slept like a pregnant koala..... competiting with my bro in the sleeping competition!!!

b4 we reached the 12 apostles, i was awaken by my tour guide.... and struggling to open my stubborn eyes..... i look outside my window.... and i saw a big gigantic stone in front me!!!

hurray!!!!!!.... alas.... we reached the 12 apostles!!!!!

i zoomed down the bus and headed to the helipcopter... yeah... me and bro took all our fortune (which costs us AUS 60 for 15 min ride)...... eh... it's our first time sitting on the helipcopter... not the big one.... but the mini one.....

i was a lucky dude to sit next to the pilot......















me.....






























me again!!!!!















the view fr the top....















lord arc george fr the top...
















London Bridge from the top













































the shipwreck coast

Sadly to say, currently, they only left 8 apostles now.... the recent one was crashed down in 2005 .... all of them are constantly attacked by the waves and wind .. thinning them out... well, currently, it is still free to go and watch this magnificent and gigantic stone .... i guess, next time, they will start charging for entrance fee to see the few 'survivors'!!!!

So, better booked your tickets now to Melbourne to watch the last hanging survivors or else....or else you need to pay a large sum of money for the entrance fee!!!















after the ride.....

but hey... where is my brother??>???...

aha..... we got separated as they need 3 ppl on board.... most of the girlfriends dont want to get separated ... so , we both siblings sacrificed of being together ... and went our separate ways....

but hey.... we just a lucky dude..... my bro also get to sit beside the pilot!!!!
















tired now.... will continue on my next blog!!!
