Second Day In Victoria Market, Melbourne

Day 2 - Another free and easy on our own...

We woke up late to replenish back the sleep we have lost on the first day and it was almost noon when we left for Victoria Market, just two traffic lights away from our apartment.
Walking along the pavement toward Victoria Market...
At the junction while waiting for the traffic light... 
It was quite hot during the day... by now, our skins are almost tan!
We were so happy when we realized that this was so near to our apartment...
Just like a five minutes walk away...
At the entrance.... 
I definitely wouldn't want to sit outside under this hot weather for a cup of tea... LOL...
Inside the market... Dry section...
Food bloggers will definitely love this place!  
Kangaroo meat was displayed... horse meat?   (just kidding!)
Neatly cut ... lots of choices...
marinated and non-marinated as well...
Giant cheddar cheese...
Giant sausages too!!
Food bloggers, giant butter fro your cakes!
I was holding a hot meat pie... only $2 and such a Big piece too!
At the fruit stalls...
American doughnuts... best in town so one local told my son.... 
Time to do some shopping...
My son must be busy taking pictures.... at all corners...
These are just a few he has taken... 
At another section of the market... 
Souvenirs section... 
Talking about souvenirs, we really feel "heartbreak".... 
We learn a lesson... must walk around first before buying...
Stall after stall gives different prices... 
We got some stuff so much more expensive than they really are... 
More than double... 
Ok, better not think about it... hahahaaa...

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
