Prego Restaurant, Floreat

I had dinner at Prego Restaurant several months ago as part of Dinner Club. Prego is a fine dining Italian restaurant located within the suburb of Floreat. Upon entering the restaurant, where waiters would hold the door and pull out your chair, you can sense that it's a little bit more upmarket. Given that I was driving that particular night, I ordered a lemon lime bitter to start.

South Perth Night Photography

Back in August, on a cold and chilly Friday night, a couple of friends and I met up at South Perth Foreshore, facing Perth city, to take the iconic shot of the Perth city night skyline. It's certainly a shot done ample of times over the years by plenty of photographers. However we just wanted to take our own version of it and mostly experiment with night long exposure.

Smuggled Seeds Espresso, Leederville

Smuggled Seeds Espresso is a little cafe located on the quiet end of Oxford Street in Leederville, away from the hustle and bustle of other popular cafes such as Sayers. This also meant parking was free and easy to find on a Sunday morning. I've heard many good things about this place from a couple of friends who know the owners so when one of my friends were keen to try it, I was happy to obliged. Despite being a tiny cafe frequented by knowing regulars/locals, it was fairly easy for us to find a table for two people.

Discover one of Australia's greatest drives, the Great Ocean Road | Part 2

After leaving Cape Otway Lighthouse, drove almost two hours straight towards Port Campbell National Park (Stopping at Princetown for fish & chips for lunch) to the highlight of the Great Ocean Road, the Twelve Apostles. No surprise, it was by far the most well built observation deck and the largest car park full of buses and cars I have seen so far along the drive. Considering we hardly saw too many tour busses along the way (main local tourists), I was a little bit shocked to see a sea of foreign tourist at the Twelve Apostles. The 45 metre high limestone structures sticking up in the Southern Ocean is certainly impressive it's its size and beauty. However now only eight "apostles" remain, five have fallen since their discovery.

Discover one of Australia's greatest drives, the Great Ocean Road | Part 1

Our three day journey on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, started in Melbourne City. After about an hour and a half's drive, we hit our first stop, Torquay. It is also the official start of the Great Ocean Road. Torquay is the surfing capital of Australia and is home to world famous Bells Beach. Despite the dreary weather, it didn't stop surfers from heading out.
