Melbourne City Walk

After our three days of guided tour, we had another two days to relax before flying back from Melbourne to our home sweet home. Aaron suggested touring the Melbourne city again and our main transport is our two walking sticks, ie. OUR LEGS! This way we could be able to see more and taste more as well... LOL...
Taken in the morning and we were on the way to an Asian supermarket to buy some stuff...
We were told that Victoria Market closes every Wednesday but reopens during the evening....
We had Korean noodles with lots of vegetables for our simple lunch...
Anything Asian is "yummylicious" to me then!!
After our simple lunch, we set out... our walk took us to another side of the city...
One of the Big Five companies in Malaysia... KPMG
While we walked, we snapped...
My son was also busy with his own camera...
It was a cooling walk....
Along the high end shopping street...
Forgot the building names though...
Taking a rest... my lunch meal had digested by then...
Pretending to have game of chess before proceeding to our next destination...
The Sealife Aquarium....

  1. I loved the tours - the tourist guides were very witty, interesting and funny...not like our Malaysian ones. The city was just ok, didn't enjoy it much as there was a terrible heatwave when I was there (like a turkey roasting in an oven)...and the horrible swarm of flies...plus the rubbish collectors' strike. Not very nice memories of the place.

  2. Nice sightseeing and walking. I prefer light and easy holiday. Less stress but of course if you dont know anyone in a foreign country, guided tour is prefer. :)

    1. I like both... like guided during certain days and certain places and walking on our own on the other days... more relaxing this way..

  5. I don't mind walking in the surrounding area as one can take their sweet time sightseeing and at the same time a good exercise.

  11. So much fun and so much walking! I bet you all lost mighty weights with healthy exercises to whallop all the noodles. I also have same cravings for Asian food when I go overseas. I even bring along Cup Noodles, McD's chilly Sauces and Sambal Belacan!

    Hey, thanks a million for the surprise gift. I received it today and will use it on my office table.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
