Final Entry - Perth

This is my final entry on our trip to Perth. My narrated entries were only up to day 5, leaving day 6 and 7 still untold. Although there are still a few more observations of Perth that I’d like to write on, I figured some of them could be saved for later, when time permits. (Ohh..yes, work has started to pick up!!!). And before the story goes stale, I reckon I'd capture the holiday highlights in a pictorial video presentation.

Our last few days in Perth saw us lazing by the beach, with kids taking dips into the cool waters of the Indian Ocean. We traveled the coastal route from Scarborough up North to Mandurah down South, stopping at picnic areas to rest and have our snack breaks. The kids had their fair share of beach bumming, going in and out of the water, chasing waves till the sun came down. As for ABE and I, well, we just let ourselves go with the flow, sat back, admired the beauty created by God Almighty, as we were calmed by the coolness of the deep blue. Time ticked and passed rather slowly…but no one seemed to be bothered. Hey…we were on holidays!!!

Enjoy the video folks, and to Faris, Farah and Nissa, cherish the good times we all had together during the trip. The song “Laskar Pelangi” is specially dedicated to all of you…know that everything starts with a dream, go ahead, dream what you want to dream, and realize that only YOU can make your dream come true!!!

Laskar Pelangi by Nidji

Mimpi adalah kunci
untuk kita menaklukkan dunia
tanpa lelah sampai engkau

laskar pelangi
takkan terikat waktu
bebaskan mimpimu di angkasa
raih bintang di jiwa

menarilah dan terus tertawa
walau dunia tak seindah surga
bersukurlah pada yang kuasa
cinta kita di dunia


cinta kepada hidup
memberikan senyuman abadi
walau ini kadang tak adil
tapi cinta lengkapi kita

laskar pelangi
takkan terikat waktu
jangan berhenti mewarnai
jutaan mimpi di bumi

menarilah dan terus tertawa
walau dunia takseindah surga
bersukurlah pada yang kuasa
cinta kita di dunia

Dear Kay

Lots of memory, lots of love. Wonderful slides and beautiful Nidji, they sound like Heroes again. I must get Aliah or Ayna learn to do the video from you.

Perth must have left all of you with very fond memories eh?
