The Coffee Club, Perth

Enjoying my morning cuppa at The Coffee Club in Western Australia! One of the best flat whites I’ve had in a while, to be honest. The spacious cafè with complimentary WiFi and an extended all-day breakfast and salads menu is to die for. With so many stores, so much food and coffee to choose from,Continue reading “The Coffee Club, Perth”

Baker’s Terrace in Perth

Australia is my favourite stopover for minced meat pies and squishy meat pastries!! For my airport-bound breakfast, I filled my tummy with this juicy chicken and veggie pot pie. It wasn’t altogether to-die-for because seriously I’ve had better meat pies from Pie Face or downtown Brisbane’s steak pie joints, but I’m a happy girl afterContinue reading “Baker’s Terrace in Perth”

The Lucky Shag Bar

“The only bar in the city on the river”, overlooking the expanse of Swan River across to South Perth. A must for tourists, also a great place to wind down and catch up with the locals over a couple of wines/beers. Love their crazy-sounding cocktails: Shag By The River (Sex On The Beach), Fruity Booty,Continue reading “The Lucky Shag Bar”

Sunset at Swan River

Slow and romantically lone walk along the Swan River waterfront overlooking South Perth.  Sea breeze and its accompanying calm did wonders for the incessant noise in my head, as did the pull of my heart in various messy directions. Loving the bright blue skies, crystal seas and its zen. This is nature at its best;Continue reading “Sunset at Swan River”

Swan Bells at Sunset

18 bells hanging in a 82.5m high campanile; The Bell Tower is breathtaking at sunset! Whoever says Perth is boring needs to visit these mind-blowing places. Based on the number of times I’ve been here this year, it’s almost my second home.

Christmas Spirits

All riled up with Christmas cheers, thanks to the awesome decorations at Carillon City in Perth! Would be spending Christmas day in Houston, and New Year in Moscow this year. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to the hohoho-happiness! How are you spending your Christmas day?:) xoxo, Viktoria Jean

Mad about Churros

Rajissimo in Copenhagen has the best churros I’ve ever eaten, and I miss it soooo much! When I stumbled upon Churros Plus in Perth, the sugar-cinnamon aroma single-handedly overpowered all my will to eat clean.  The plus-sized made-to-order churros are filled to-the-brim with chocolate, vanilla or caramel flavours.   A little disturbed by how phallic-looking my foodContinue reading “Mad about Churros”

Cafe-hunting: Aroma Cafe Perth

The only downside to cafe-hunting overseas: I can’t drink more than a cup a day, or I’ll have to deal with serious sleep issues. Average service, average coffee… Great spot to chill in the CBD area, though. 3/800 Hay St Perth

Perth – May’13

Aye aye captain, mission accomplished over the South Atlantic Ocean. Agent Yujin reporting, Over and out! Out in the city of Perth aiming my camera at random and snapping the most mundane shots while sourcing out cafes in the area. A very mind-clearing journey on foot, I have to say. Australia has got some hiddenContinue reading “Perth – May’13”
