Welcome to Adelaide!!!

Welcome to Adelaide...



Adelaide is the capital city of the Australian state of South Australia. It is the fifth largest city in Australia, with a population of over 1.1 million...

Adelaide has been my home for over 3 years now... When i first came here, my first reaction was "OH MY GAWD!! THATS IT?? THE CITY IS JUST THIS??"

Yes, Adelaide is a small city... but a very nice and comfortable place to study in... cause u know why? There is nothing much you can do after 5pm! Shopping centres and other shop houses close at 5pm... and the restaurants here closes at 11pm... If u r hungry after 11pm, COOK AT HOME!


view of the city


We have very nice buildings here in Adelaide... oh did i mention that Adelaide is also known as City of Churches and a Sister City of Penang? Y city of churches? because Adelaide has lots of Church la! duh! Sister City of Penang is because errmm.. remember Captain Francis Light landed in Penang n took over Penang? Francis Light's dad took over Adelaide... thats y its called a sister city of Penang... hehehee...


South Australia's Parliament House


The Railway Station Building cum SkyCity Casino... The railway station is underground...



I live right in the middle of the city where the one and only biggest mall is right opposite my house... everything is basically a walking distance from my place... Here in Adelaide City, we shop along the streets... ehehehe... It called street shopping... Our famous shopping street is Rundle Mall...


This is Rundle Mall... They often have street performers performing on the street here in Rundle Mall... See that guy? He is performing with dancing puppet!!



This is Adelaide's very own Chinatown!! Yeah, we have chinatown here... our wet market/central market is here as well...



There's one thing that i definitely like about about this place is the free bus services!!! I got to hop into the the free bus travel around the city for free... So, yeah... being a lazy person like me.. i dont have to walk to uni! yay! and the good thing about it is... FREE!!!



Our free colorful bus!!



Can u see how clean is the bus??!! It so clean ok... not like Malaysia's public bus... yukkk... its so comfortable to take busses here that i actually feel proud taking busses ok... LOL!

We do have beaches here.. Our famous beach is called Glenelg Beach....



Can u see the nice clean beautiful white sandy beach??!!


and not to mention, u can oogle the girls suntan their bodies... sometimes, topless... hehehee

Thats all i guess... oh before i forgot... here is a picture of my uni!
