10th july 2010

Woke up with healthy breakfast

Rushed all the way from Collin Street to federation Square. A street performer

ACMI in Federation square

as we signed up for a Melbourne by foot one day tour.

so meet up everybody at Federation Square. This is Dave Carswell, our tour guide.

big ass projection screen at Federation Square

He explained each and every inch of Melbourne Federation Square.

this remind me of  Hong Kong Star Avenue.

This is not a Paris Tower.

As you know this is called Melbourne by foot so our whole day tour was traveled the Melbourne city by our own foot.

Explaining right beside the Yarra River.

Very concentrating. Actually at that time when he explained I felt so dizzy as I had a very bad hang over after the 3 shots and one glass of  champaign the night before.

very western style design.

Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)

Birrarung Marr’s Federation Bells, The awesome part of the tour.

The Ferris Wheel. This remind me of one of my bestie wanted to get her proposal in the wheel. haha

Is bigger than me.

*chik chak* It was so damn cold.

The railway crossings merging towards Flinders Street Station.

Batman Avenue. What a name 😛 why not superman avenue or ironman avenue?

reached the awesome ACDC lane. I wasn’t aware until Chris told me ACDC actually are an Australian rock band, formed in 1973. Their album Back in Black is 2nd highest-selling album in history, behind Thriller by Michael Jackson. AC/DC ranked fourth on VH1’s list of the “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock”. The most interesting part is their latest album was Iron man 2 soundtrack! No wonder ler they are so proud of ACDC and renaming of Corporation Lane to ACDC Lane as a tribute to the rock band.

The entire lane was actually street arts.

pay attention to what Dave wanted to tell us before we start admiring the arts.

*meow*

I actually like the western culture as they appreciate ART.

Winter trip – Melbourne 2nd day

9th July 2010

Woke up and greeted with the morning breeze of Melbourne.

The place we stayed.

The parking signage.

The Melbourne tram. How I wish we can have this tram systems in Penang but we got no such big land and big budget for this. Imagine, if we do have this life would be so much easier.

Just right opposite the apartment there are a huge building own by a bank and in front of it there are alot of statues standing and posing out there.

Florist??? yea, it is.

Such lovely idea by opening a florist on the road side.

Bicycles for rent.

Morning!

Boo just look so tiny compare to the ang mo in there. haha

Still have’t got used with the temperature there.

Tram stop

Our 1st stop! Queen Victoria Market

Section by section

Very very very huge morning market.

never been to such huge market in my life before. Is like a Tesco in Malaysia

Spotted something that caught our attention.

A moving doughnut Kitchen’s van. Queuing for that.

that’s what I wanted to experience. Western country’s life.

The food court inside the market.

Seated and ready to eat.

forgotten what is this called. I know I ordered a set of breakfast

which came with this cup of cappuccino

Doughnuts which got jam flavour.

Mr. B’s Hot choco.

a plate of mini pancakes.

and soo yee’s cappuccino.

It may look small

but there are alot of choices.

Time to shop for our dinner for the rest of our stay.

Meat section.

They loves meats, I guess.

Oysters.

The cleanness, the odorless and the systematicness that make me like the market so much. Is just like a shopping mall. I went to the public toilet is just as clean as our hotel toilet here, it was so well-maintain.

Dairy product sections

Cheese??? yes cheeseeeee 🙂 whatever cheese u want u can get it here. cheddar kah, creame cheese kah, Mozzarella cheese kah, Parmesan cheese kah, as long as it is cheese. and they actually had cheese tasting there.

Soo yee : I think we should cook cheese with bacon in the morning for breakfast lo.

Chris : uh huh??? bacon?? which means we need to buy bacon also??

so we headed to buy us some bacons.
