Perth Self Drive Kids Friendly Itinerary Day 3: Perth > Adventure Scape> Bunbury> Busselton Jetty> Margaret River

Perth Self Drive  Kids Friendly Itinerary Day 3: Perth > Adventure Scape> Bunbury> Busselton Jetty> Margaret River

It's gonna be a long day for us today, we're embarking on our second but longest road trip to Margaret River. (Read about our first road trip in Okinawa here)
Even though it's just a 3.5-hour drive from Perth to Margaret River but I am the only driver for the

Thankfully, the Mitsubishi ASX from Bayswater Car Rental is such an awesome car and we totally enjoyed the ride. Check out how we have an hourly stopover and some playground fun for Sticky Bean en route to Margaret River.
Perth was surprisingly super kids friendly and filled with lots of fun playground for kids!

  • Check out of Crown Plaza Perth
  • 1-hour drive to Adventurescape playground (Toilet, supermarket nearby)
  • 1-hour drive to Bunbury City Centre Macdonald (with playground), quick shop at a hypermart there
  • 15 minutes drive to Bunbury Wildlife Park
  • 40 minutes drive to Busselton Jetty (awesome sand playground)
  • Check-in at Prideaus of Margaret River for 3 nights
Adventurescape playground - an awesome playground for kids! They even have flying fox here as well. The good thing is, there're clean toilets and a supermarket too. Making this a perfect stopover.

2nd stopover - Bunbury City Centre 1 hour drive from Adventure scape playground

There's a playground within the Macdonalds and hypermart nearby. Mr Keir is excited with the you that came with their Happy Meal.

Bunbury Wildlife Park
From our lunch stopover above, it's merely a 15 minutes drive to Bunbury Wildlife centre. It's not a big place so you'll probably take an hour max at this place. You can purchase animal feed to feed the animals. Mainly birds and kangaroos. 
Though it's a relatively small wildlife centre, it's Sticky Bean's first close up encounter with Kangaroos.

The thing about Perth, they are so kids friendly and there are playgrounds everywhere! It felt as though we're on a playground hunt throughout Perth. 
Here's an awesome playground right outside Bunbury Wildife Centre. Wished we could spend there a tad longer but we still have to get to Magaret Drive before dark.

Love that their playgrounds cater to all ages and the fact that they have lower monkey bars for younger children to attempt. Unlike the vast majority of monkey bars found in Singapore playground which is way too high for younger children to attempt.

Sticky Bean mastered her monkey bar skills in Perth.

Busselton Jetty (awesome sand playground)

We're finally at Busselton Jetty. No we did not take the tram right to the jetty, we simply lingered around the playground area. There's this awesome sand playground right here! 
Perth is indeed a playground heaven for kids.

Oh yes, there's water play at this Busselton Jetty playground as well.

Finally, we've reached Prideaus safely. Our accommodation for the next 3 nights. 
Check out this awesome accommodation which is 2 bedroom double-storey and it comes with a huge Jacuzzi tub, a porch and fully equipped kitchen.

Bedroom 2 - they provide baby cots too

A perfect place to just enjoy the weather with a cuppa

Bedroom 1 which we slept in

The Jacuzzi tub room which is as big as the bedroom!

A living and dining area with fully equipped kitchen

aaah. don't you love this place?

We were pretty exhausted by the time we make it to Prideaus of Margaret River. Did a quick freshen up and hurry off to dinner. Luckily, we managed to make a trip to Coles Supermarket before they close for the day. Shops in Perth tend to close early at 7pm.

Quick Review of our Self Drive Perth Kids Friendly Itinerary Day 3
It was surprisingly an easy drive even though it's my longest road trip to date. Love the frequent stopovers we have so that I don't have to drive for more than 1.5 hours per stretch. We'll probably do the same again if we were to come back.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you. There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement. But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still. And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks. But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh... And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group. So naturally, i fall into this group as well. According
