Outrageous things you need to know | Melbourne, Australia

Updated: Feb 22, 2019

Just few second after, we were held back by one immigration officer whom asked us some random question and jotted down in her "555" note book. Nothing personal but my husband understandingly have waited for hours getting through the queue get a little annoyed by it. He asked "what is this about?" and the officer said "its just a standard procedure". YERP "standard" procedure.

It a throwback timeeeee.... My husband and I had choose Melbourne to shop baby stuff and to jalan-jalan release stress since I'm encounter an overly stress problem due to pregnancy. (Thank you husband. You're the best !).

So let start about the trip.

We go there with Air Asia because its the cheapest ticket we can find. We wanna save money on travelling so that we can maximise our shopping or so i though. SIGHHH.(keep reading iif you guys wanna know what happen)

We safely landed around 10am local time, we disembarked swiftly should i say and went to the immigration counter. Oh my god there was a veryyyy lonnnggg queue. Since I was pregnant, so i was calm and try to look for a lane for "preggers". Cis there was NONE!!

So I remain calm and look at the line and though to myself "well how long could it be". What a positive thought , and then reality hits!! We were in line for 1 HOUR and 13 MINUTES!!! I know a normal person would be tired by now and could you imagine ME, pregnant, STANDING for more than an hour. Okayla xpe so we finally made it thru without hassle. A big shout out to Ema for handling our visa (Thank you dear). Just few second after, we were held back by one immigration officer whom asked us some random question and jotted down in her "555" note book.

After going through immigration we went to collect our checked in baggage and since we were held back so long our baggage was doing the marry go round on the conveyer belt and so my husband trying to save time im guessing SPRINT to our runaway bag. I broke a slight faster walking pace to keep near distance with him. As soon as we claim our baggage, apparently we were in a line. Ohhh Goshhh another LLOOOONNNGGGG QUEUEEE. and yerp you guessed it folks. No special lane for this preggy woman. Sooo kesiannn. As said before, we noticed we were in a line,me and my husband was trying to look around figuring where would we queue up. suddenly  this one MAKCIK INFRONT was saying "eh dont cut the line. queue eh" in the most MALAY loghat utara you could possibly imagine. CEHHH dah masuk negara orang nak assertive konon makcik ni.  Whatever la MAKCIK so we went around and look for the end side of the queue. Just for info, the queue is for goods to declare. We packed some Brahim's just incase I got hungry at night so we did like most good citizen do during visiting other country (perasannyaaaaa) we declare and we got out at about 1230pm local time. Total of 2 hours and 30 minutes baru keluar kat tempat orang sambut tetamu. Keep in mind we are not fully out from the airport YET.

"Eh don't cut the line. queue eh" in the most MALAY loghat utara you could possibly imagine.

My God help us. 


We planned to buy local telco just for one of the phone and YAHOO! it was MINE. hah. Yela nak posts stories on Instagram, pictures and checked in places so of course i needed the internet. Of course incase of emergency but who cares if i cannot post pic. is a EMERGENCY by itself.hahahahaha. (BEST husband award goes to Mr Firdaus) clap clap clap !!

When we arrive there, we straight away go to the car rental company which is Redspot to take our car.

So let start with our itinerary. 


Day 1

After checked-in, we tour around our hotel and ate lunch at Asiah's Kitchen. There got Singapore, Malaysia dan Indonesia food so don't worry bout halal okay. It's CONFIRM halal coz makcik yang do the cooking was wearing a typical kampung makcik style scarf.(with anak tudung all) 

Cost for food there is as same as here in Malaysia (if you're not convert is so ehem-ehem sendiri la ye.)

Walk around through State Library Victoria(we didnt went in), Big W which was freaking expensive and out of the bloom our savior!!! WOOLWORTH. We didn't shop much there but it did gave us some hope. Even though our RM TURUNNNNN KAW KAW but we still are able to fill up penuhh our hand carry basket. Stock stock MYDIN SEYYYYY.  


Day 2

We drive for 4 hour untuk sampai ke 12 Apostle through Great Ocean Road and Otway National Park. Well actually if lalu highway, it can be reach just within 2 and half hour je but well nak bajet tourist sangatkan soooo I pon gedik pergi try other route konon. Then nampak National Park. I thought it was something. Then end up it was NOTHING. Haha. Siap boleh cakap macam balik Kelantan lalu Gua Musang pulak, which my husband found not funny. 

Then bila sampai sana, kita tengok helicopter and the cost Naik Helicopter is 95AUD per person for 15 MINUTES. So we just walk walk and bye bye helicopter je. Hehe. 


And suddenly Anakin starts crying. To be continue.


p/s : share with me your experience regarding this. I would love to hear it.


Love Tya
