Melbourne ♥ 8:51 PM
I can't believe I forgot about posting this blog entry after saying that I would!
Back to my Melbourne trip. Speaking of which, I haven't done the Sydney theolo one either! I don't think I will ever do that entry tho. Some things should remain unsaid.
It was a last minute decision to go to Melbourne actually. On a whim:) Makes life a little exciting doesn't it? And I get to stay with LULULISA+ANGGEEE+DANIELLU:) Super excited yet a little scared that I would be hell bored. And so I happily(anyway) city hopped over to Melbourne.
DAY 1: 18.01.2010
On the plane from Sydney to Melbourne.
Eeeew, dreary weather when I got there. And there was even hail before I arrived. Hello, it's summer. WHAT HAIL?! And it's cold... brrrrr... Thanks John for picking me up:)
With Joanne, John's sista:)
Lululisa? Still looks the same:)
I ordered something random from a Chinese restaurant but it has coconut in it. FAIL! In the end, I swap with John:) Food.. is ok.
But love the almond hot drink. Ah^^
Out sightseeing with Lululisa, my tour guide! My first time on the tram. I know, I sound super country bumpkin:P
The famous Flinders station. Can you see me?
In the city
Max Brenner, awesome chocolate but I think San Churros in Perth is more awesome!
But nevertheless, who can resist CHOCOLATE???!!!
Then we went over to Chinatown where apparently the Korean hair salon is award winning.
I think they just screwed my fringe over. Sighs.
Then as Lisa has to go work, somebody else came to babysit me. Okie, actually just Bernice, Mel and her funny boyfriend, Nelson:) They look cute together!
We ended up hanging out at Mel's apartment since most shops are closing and we were waiting for the boys to meet us. It was hilarious when I met Lisa's new friends and they were like, you should go out clubbing with us and Lisa just said one sentence... 'erm, she is from my church.' Everyone went 'oooohhh' , like it explains everything:)
And because it's Bernice birthday dinner, I crashed the party:P Nam squashed at the back with us.
Evening came so quickly and it's one day in Melbourne!
Claypot-> Seafood. Nothing superb that impressed me yet.
There's a monster Octopus in the house!
Boo! Says the fish.
Crabs! I still prefer Malaysia's mud crabs anytime.
Then we went to look for Lisa Lu at her workplace. Happy birthday, Ber!
My new friend:) I like her, she is so down to earth and funny!
The rest of the gang
Lisa still has to work so Nelson and Mel gave me a lift home. I LOVE NELSON'S CONVERTIBLE!!!!!! But I think my dad will kill me if I ever buy a Ford. My dad has this thing against European cars.
After I left, no one to hold onto the computer display screen so Nelson safety belt it!
DAY 3: 20.01.2010
Today, Lisa is gonna bring me shopping at Southern Cross DFO! Super fail though because we sleep so late every night approx 3am and thus wake up around noon. SOooo, by the time we get out, it's almost time for shops to close. Nevertheless, still can buy things:)
Tram- specialty of Melbourne
I was craving Nandos:D
Met up with Mel again:)
Peter Alexander!! I think it's the best steal ever... I heart my playsuit, super cute!
Cafe for tea? Or dinner. Not quite sure. Our body clocks were screwed anyways.
Hanging out with Kat, Ian and Jackson
And then we went to Crown to look around. And no, I didn't gamble. Look at Jackson at the background!
The crazy Asians;P
BOOOM! And we are engulf in fire!
With Lisa and Kat
Little Chocolate teddies. Too bad the shop is closed:(
DAY 4: 21.01.2010
Came out of the house slightly earlier at 12pm
Here we are at Melbourne Central
Help! The library is sinking!
In the tram
With Ber and Lisa for lunch
The melting EYE
Bye Ber and see you real soon!
After that, we went to church:) That's Daniel and Angela
The church hall is pretty small too! And that's Pr Shee by the way
Watching tennis and playing table tennis
With Terence, the cleanest of the 3 brothers.
Yucky beetle.. Love vacuum cleaners! A case of the disappearing beetle:)
Stan against Daniel and Stan's dad.
And then he got bored and went to play the computer instead.
DAY 5: 22.01.2010
Angela's studying hard! But I'm glad she came along:) That girl honestly need to take a break!
Daniel using trying to block the sun.
Bored! Ange and Dan fell alseep!
Yay, finally reach a spot called... see below
Stan double checking to see that we are on the right track
The view was breathtaking:)
Then we moved on to a higher place... It's called Arthur's seat I think
My favorite photo:)
Yay, reached the strawberry farm.
This is how a strawberry flower looks like!
Eating while picking although we are not meant to.
Stan found a strange green one
Terence is the first to give up
We found some green ones, they look strange
Feasting on unwashed strawberries. We will think about the consequences later.
Ter looks cute with my bag:)
Ange advertising for the strawberry farm...
And she was so bored, she decorated her box-__-"
The tall gets taller.
And also crazier
Now for some ice cream
Then we continued our journey back to the city. At some crappy beach
Ter couldn't resist the water. I wish I could join him but for girls, we can't just take our tops off like that!
This is the most I could do.
The backseat people K.Oed
Back to Stan's and Ter's home for dinner before service
After church, we decided to bake cakes
Friday night, say hello to Tyga
DAY 6: 23.01.2010
Another photo of TJC
Lunch at church
With Sis Aileen, it's good to see someone familiar:)
And Matthias.. so cute!
With the Goh family
Then after service, took photos with the girlies from Melbourne
Then back to Lance and Larissa's home for Vegemite chicken dinner. Noms
It's super awesome!
And since it was still bright, Larissa brought Ange and I to... Mount Dandenong.
Tyga decided to go over to Larissa. I think he is trying to even out the love
Because if you noticed, he went to the back to Ange.
Finally there. And it was FREEZING COLD!
Ange and the Owl.
Sunset and someone's head
Then we went to a park near Larissa's uni.
I think my camera screen is dirty:/
Then back home for some awesome dessert!
They were so yummy that burning my tongue was so worth it!
DAY 7: 24.01.2010
Super FAIL! We went late for baptism and made it BARELY for phototaking. Hang on, I think we missed that one too.
A doggie photobombed my photo! But nice:)
Home time... at Boxhill station. Ange is studying hard because she is doing summer. And we are totally in love with Iyaz- Replay:)
Loving the bangles!
Later at Boxhill again... Dinner with the Melbourne youths
With the Phan girlies
Dodgy peppermint green bubble tea
DAY 8: 25.01.2010
City of Melbourne
Awesome ice cream on a nice hot day
Being very cultured people, we decided to go to the National Gallery to admire art:)
Handcrafted. Very amazing.
On the tram
Liking this shop's name
In some nice hotel toilet
Bubble tea.. not too great either
Cake at Crown
This one is nicer:)
Went all the way to Melbourne to watch Avatar:/ But it's a good movie:)
Yums... Hot chocolate on a cold night
Can my night get any better?
Strawberry pancakes love<3
At Docklands to reflect on life:P
DAY 10: 26.01.2010
Looks familiar? I am back at Flinders Street Station.
Back in the art gallery again. So much bigger than the one in Perth!
And then John and Ter picked me up and brought me to Doncaster shopping centre
It was Australia Day and we missed the fireworks. FAIL but we had a good dinner at TGIF but I got emo after that because I am leaving the next day:(
Night lights... reminds me of Singapore.

Then packing up and heading back to good old Perth. Thanks Stan for sending me to the airport:) Next time, I am gonna bring a bunch of people along so there can be more parties!
Just for you Tash! Krispy Cremes all the way from Melbourne!
