It's time for another blogpost, yipee!
As you might have known, winter is on it's way to Australia. The temperature may drop down to 3 degrees Celcius here in Perth. What brings the winter vibe better than an ice skating rink!
So about a few days ago, me and my friends went to the winter festival happening in Perth. At the Esplanade Park of Fremantle to be exact. The festival occurs in 4 parts of Australia, Sydney, Brisbane, Fremantle, and Canberra. Started at the end of June and mostly ends on the 17th of July, except for Brisbane, they end on the 10th of July. Which made me a little burdened by having to write this post as soon as possible, before it's too late! Haha.
Honestly speaking the park wasn't that big and there weren't a lot of things to do besides skating and a few slides. But I find the slides less amusing as they are designed for little kids. But I guess that's another positive side of this place for others, as the environment is really children friendly. So it's definitely a good idea to bring you children or probably little siblings down there.
Beside the ice skating rink, there are 3 other rides that you can try.
- Toboggan Terror (5 Rides) $10
Real ice toboggan ride with sledges (helmets available). Available for all ages, under 5's need to be accompanied by an adult.
- Giant Slide $5
Giant inflatable slide to jump and bump down. Available for ages 4 and above. 1 ride = 10 min . Sessions start every 10 minutes.
- Tube Dudes $5
Giant inflatable tubes ready for racing. Available for ages 5 and up. 1 ride = 10 min.
Or you can also get 3 hours unlimited all-ride-pass ($25 online, $35 counter price), this exclude the ice rink though.
There is a really good deal from Monday-Wednesday that my friends and I took. It's called the EAT DRINK SKATE program, where we paid for $20 (exclude $2.75 fee) and get a skating session, a jaffle and get to pick an alcoholic beverage. Just in case you are wondering jaffle is another word for toast! haha. Where the jaffle itself already cost up to $9. It's a pretty good deal, isn't it?
Then finally the time was almost 6pm! Time to skate! Yayy!!
Actually, this is only the second time I went ice skating since my parents used to forbid me when I was younger, they always say that it's dangerous. Well, that's partially true because many accidents happened in ice rinks, so always be very careful when you skate peeps!
Took a few ootd pics :3

At the end of the day we had so much fun! Although Priscilla hurt her foot :(
Luckily it wasn't that bad and she's all better now <3
This is Sher, a new friend from Queensland that I've just met that day! She's really friendly & nice, looking forward in meeting her again someday! :D
That's all for now, I hope you find this post useful!
Wishing you and your family happy holiday and a wonderful winter.
