Tasmania Trip 2019 Day 3: Seagulls & Supermarket

More walking around Hobart. And I do love seagulls. We never get these in Singapore. And the grass here is so lovely. In Singapore this would be called carpet grass and they have to be weeded carefully and it’s expensive.

B pointed out that the orchids at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands are real and if they are replaced regularly must be super expensive. Me and my cousin D love coming to TWG. The outlet here looks nice but … Continue reading
