Since we didn't spent much time in Melbourne city, Johnny & I decided back to the city for the last remaining day. Queen Victoria Market has been the heart and soul of Melbourne, definitely one of the tourist attraction.
Queen Victoria Market is quite similar to those open market (we called it pasar pagi) in Malaysia. The only different is this is much cleaner. It opens from 6am - 2pm (closed on Mon & Tues).
Johnny and I decided to have our first meal at here. Saw many people have been queuing up for a soup stall. So I picked a pumpkin soup for myself. (the best pumpkin soup eva)
I just can't get enough of the local blue mussels. This is a must try food in Queen Victoria Market. How I wish my stomach was big enough to try all of it. Huhu...
We had a great leisurely walk around here. Such a great place to get food and souvenirs.
Then we have some extra time to explore the city after our breakfast. If you lazy to walk around, you may try using tram to explore the city, a good way to mingle with locals.
Next stop - Brighton Beach, a bit far from the city but definitely a place worth for a visit. You can take train from Flinders Street Station on the Sandringham line straight to Brighton Beach Station. This place is famous because of the iconic bath houses.
While on my way to the beach, I saw many local residents taking their dogs for walk in this area.
Spot some beautiful houses with special designed just right behind the beach. The house owner must be interested in astronomy, cause there's a telescope behind the middle of glass windows.
Oh my goodness, I want a house like thisss.
Brighton Beach, it's an oceanside neighborhood in the southern portion of the NYC borough of Brooklyn. It has been transformed into a Russian enclave, also known as Odessa by the sea, also called "Little Odessa".
It took about 20 mins to walk from station to beach, but after arrived, it just paid off. It was freezing cold that day and windy, I almost blown away. lol
You ain't gonna see hot sexy bodies here (because it's winter) but you have to sit at here and enjoy the sunset. I came here just because of these colorful bathing boxes. All boxes are quaint and well maintained. Everyone of them is a good background for photos.
My simple OOTD, super love this jacket! I bought it from Taiwan which only cost me about 100 bucks. It's thick enough to keep me warm in this winter.
He's trying to act cool but failed. LOL
Nothing much to do here actually except for photography. We had a gale of time for photographing at here. And please remember come around 5pm to avoid the crowd. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and the last Melbourne entry is coming soon. Stay tuned.
