Field Trip | Bairnsdale, East Gippsland

APPLES! APPLES HANGING ON THE TREE!
I got the hype!

.

...

Hello people!
This hectic week is over! TGIF in advance! :D

But hell no,
there's 3 more reports to hand in next week >:(
And I just noticed there's two more weeks till the end of the semester.
Finals coming up and winter too. 
Bummer :(

*Bipolar*

.

...

Back to talking about the field trip.

Yesterday, my lecturer brought us to Bairnsdale, East Gippsland for industrial visit. 
Hence, another report. Seriously, there ain't no such thing as free lunch. SIGH.
Woke up around 7am to get ready because we have to depart from the campus before 8am. 
What a nightmare.

After everyone gathered, we hit the road!

Not forgetting to selfie in the bus! With my beloved course mates.

I swear to God I sleep in the bus for like 4 or 5 rounds on the way to our destination. OMG
My neck hurts, my knee hurts.
Symptoms of getting old >:(

FINALLY
After 121367795793km, took us almost 4/5 hours to reach
One Harvest, Vegco.

Y U SO FAR?!

K la. Since I am already talking about it, might as well intro about them a bit.
So they are a well-known company or industry that supplies pre-packed salads, fresh-cut fruits and vegetables to famous supermarkets in OZ like Coles or Woolworths.

etc etc.

We were super hungry and they provided some light lunch such as wraps and sandwiches.
After toilet break and lunch break,
it's time to jot down all the notes because we have report to write.
BOOHOO.


After the presenter finished presenting,
we went in to their processing area.
Sorry, no pictures for the processing area guys cuz it's confidential.

We were all divided into three groups and damn, my group's presenter was talking too softly and FAST in the mean time. But getting to know how those pre-packed salad were made was kinda cool!

Looking at all the advance industrial technology just make you go jaw-drop yo.
And the amount of salads they can make per hour. It's shocking.

Bla bla bla. 
It's 3.30 and we have to leave the place.

So,

a few pictures with the girls
A picture with the signboard HEEEE.


Seriously, this factory visit was sort of a let down. Not because the factory sucks, but the fact that the 4 hours journey was way too time consuming and if possible, add more destinations along the way that would be cool. >:(
Sorry, Liz (le lecturer).

But, SHE DID!

En routed to Picnic Point Reserve :DDD


My "Pink Lady" apple :)
I had 2 muahaha
It's so sweeet. It taste so much better back in Malaysia. 
AND IT'S SUPER FRESH! Just plucked from the orchard!

More breathtaking pictures ahead!











Apples hanging on the TREEE. My very first time. 
Forgive my jakun-ness. 

Look at them cute cows. They were staring at us the whole time while the owner of the farm trying to explain how to grow the apples.
& most of us weren't paying attention because everyone busy taking pictures with them cows and apples. Too pretty okay. 



Mother of apples!

Time to go home :(

The sudden sadness of realizing there's so much work to be done after going back to the city.
UGH.

.

...

On the way back home, the gorgeous sunset view.







Notice how the color changes from yellow to orange and then red?
Somehow reminds me of the Lion King HAHA

That's all about the trip.

OH WAIT. There's one more group picture. 
Selfie Level: BUS!





Thanks for reading!
