Hobart, Tasmania.

Taking a break from Malaysian politics related posts


Hobart being the state capital and most populous city of Tasmania, Australia, would be my second favorite place in Australia. The first being Brisbane  because I like half naked boys on the beach more. Nevertheless, Hobart is really an amazing city and I would love to go back there again.

Hobart is right by the sea and the waterfront is gorgeous. The dream would be to own a luxury yacht here, imagine all the things I can do with it ! To be honest, there is not much you can do in Hobart except relax. Here are some things we did while we were in Hobart. 

Places to go

On the cruise to Mona , an interesting museum of old and new art.
Didn't regret a single bit to pay for this because it really did opened my eyes to very different things.

One of my favourite pieces was the, I forgot it's name but lets called it the water spurting words 
You only have a split second to see the words that the water forms before gravity messes it all up. Just like us, everyone wants to adapt to society, but everytime we're done adapting, society changes again. We only have such a split second to know what we are really doing.

Forgot this name too but I call it silent aboriginal cos it represented the aboriginals who had mouths but are restricted from talking.

The Blank Library

Ok end of my nerd talk and on to food.
You can never go wrong with seafood in Hobart.

Apart from seafood, we had the famous Jackman & McRoss pies !

We tried all their pies and I can't even decide which one I like because all of them are so good. My tummy is churning now at the thought of it.

Dad chilling around the city center. Shoppers would enjoy this place not just because do they have all the usual stores including Myers, but because the environment was really nice. Open aired and all.

and the number thing to do in Hobart : 
Visit the Salamanca market
It is opened every Saturday morning.

From French donuts to spices from the Middle East. 
There were soooo many food samples to try !

There were also a lot of street entertainers who evidently from the pic above are very entertaining.

Because it was sunny so we had so many bottles of ginger beer ! Also tried my first ginger CHILLI beer, which I didn't really like at first, but the taste kind of grew on me. Worth a try !

Bumped into my fellow Albert House mate. The world is so small I can't even.
