Trout Farm, The Nobbies and Our Shopping Loot

Okay, okay, this is the last post of our Melbourne trip...

On the second day of our Philip Island trip, right after the beach outing in Sunderland Bay, daddy & mummy chose to go to The Nobbies while Mei yiyi and her family wanted to go fishing. I was given 2 options... to follow daddy mummy or to follow Mei yiyi's family. I chose to follow Mei yiyi's family (because I wanted to be with the kids) so off to the trout farm we went.

Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm

Look, I'm holding a real fishing rod and I'm... I'm fishing! It's my very first time and it could also probably be my one and only fishing experience cos daddy and mummy aren't into this...

See, I'm really fishing :) Waiting... at the outdoor pond

After waiting for about 20 minutes with still no sign of fishes, we (the kids) started to get a bit restless so we moved to the indoor pond...

David yi-jeong giving me a helping hand. Within 2 minutes, we felt something... 

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive...

Catch of the day!

The whopping 1kg rainbow trout, the biggest catch ever in David yi-jeong's fishing history! (and it burned a small hole in his pockets too... yes, we had to pay for the fish and we were not allowed to throw it back into the pond hehe)

Meanwhile, daddy and mummy went "pak-tho" and took a slow drive to The Nobbies. 

They didn't spot any seals but saw flocks and flocks of seagulls.

The Nobbies are the 2 rock islands

Nesting seabirds

The weather was not so good... it rained and was freezing cold! Daddy and mummy did not complete the boardwalk  and left in a hurry because they were threatened by the dark clouds and strong winds

Lastly, we lugged home one large suitcase filled with nothing else but 20kg worth of goodies...

Thank goodness for the baggage weight limit or mummy could have bought even more :p

The heaviest... chocolates!

16 bars altogether (mummy only bought 5 bars, the rest were all gifts for family members back home)

The most expensive... nuts! 

Most value for money (in other words, CHEAPEST)... fish oil! (These are very heavy too)

... and finally, the cutest of the lot!

  11. Sheoh Yan: I don't really fancy goat's milk products. I did buy some when I went to NZ last time and it took me years to finish using them up :p
