Play: Exploring Western Australia in Winter (Day 3)

After spending 2 days in Fremantle, we checked out of the hotel and drove into the Perth CBD area... It is about half an hour drive and our first stop is to fill our stomach at Hog's Breath, highly recommended by my ex-colleague who used to study in Perth.

Hog's Breath specialise in Prime Rib Steak which they slow cook for 18 hours. Hubby and me both ordered their Prime Rib Steak (mine is original version and hubby's one is top with egg and bacon). 

They have 3 types of cut to suit different stomach:
1) Traditional cut-about 300g steak
2) Lite cut-about 200g steak
3) Mega cut-about 400g steak

While waiting, the kids got their colour pack... so they are enjoying themselves.


Cheerful girl... always ready for the camera

Our steak has arrived and they look wonderful!

The steaks are really nice, well cooked and marinated on the outside and still remains juicy inside. Served with crispy and yummy fries, we both enjoyed the meal very much. We even ordered extra chips cause they tasted so good!

After meal, we walked around Northbridge area and bought this huge apple strudel from Corica Cafe as recommended from my ex-colleague as well. The cafe is in this green and grey building... just a few minutes walk from Hog's Breath. The apple strudel is really huge so you might want to share among a few of you :p

Nice dessert on display
The huge apple strudel which are store in the fridge behind the cashier, they are too big to go into the display cakes area
See how big the apple strudel is...
We also bought some vegetable (brocollini, peas and tomatoes) to cook some porridge for the kids for dinner....

Check in at Novotel Langley Perth was quick and we got a room on the second level... wanted to get a room higher up but for family room (with two double beds), they are only located on 2nd and 3rd floor... Car park is available at the basement of the hotel at additional cost. There are also some roadside parking where you pay the parking fees using parking machine. 

Room are spacious, comfortable beds, bathroom with bathtub and a fridge. However, room doesn't come with a locked safe... Washing machine and dryer are located at the basement where guest could do their own washing if need to.

Hubby went to return the car as we will be in the city centre for a few days... and the kiddos can't wait to try the apple strudel.... both eagerly posing for pics because they know after pic time, they get to eat the apple strudel :)

And this is indeed the biggest apple strudel i have ever eaten...

Look at the boy's cheeky face....
While we eating, hubby walking back from city centre

After a satisfying dessert time, both took their nap.....and when daddy is back from returning the car, mummy went for a shopping spree at the city centre :) yay!!!

Sleeping well
I went to explore the city centre, find out where have nursing room etc but in the end, didn't have time to bring the kiddos to walk in the centre... we found ourselves other entertainment instead.

For those travelling to Perth with kids, there is nursing room at this David Jones outlet in the CBD area, it is quite big and have a few rooms for breastfeeding...its located on the first floor.

For dinner, i cook some porridge for the kids.. they have been eating outside food for the past few days and its time to detox.

To do that, I used my portable electric cooker. This is really one of my best investment. Its a electric pot and u can basically cook anything in it. I usually use this to cook porridge and also to boil hot water especially when the electric jug at the hotel is not that clean...

After porridge, they had a good time watching tv and drinking apple berry juice.

Satisfied... after meal, enjoying their drinks

Tomorrow, its the time to explore the zoo :) Sweet dreams baby!
