Our City Edge On Elizabeth Apartment In Melbourne

Many of my friends asked me where we stayed during our eight days trip in Melbourne.   Before coming over, I've asked a blogger friend about the accommodation and which one she would recommend and she was so kind enough to find out for me.  Her recommendation was City Edge at A'Beckett Street and without much ado, we just booked it online...

The City Edge is just on the right.... directly opposite the Book Sale sign....
There is one queen size bed....
and another sofa-bed at the living hall...
The pantry is just two steps away from the sofa bed.... LOL....
The corridor where we put our luggage....
Initially we were given this apartment but the air conditioner was not working very well...
The heat outside was really terrible and we went down to the reception to request for another room...
The lady-in-charge was very friendly actually, 
she took the trouble to let me see another two more rooms 
before we finally settled for the third one.....
At least the room was not facing the evening sun as the other two rooms....
And this room was a bit larger than the other two..... 
We could chuck our big luggage inside here...
So... this has become one room apartment during our 7 nights stay here in Melbourne...
We can do our cooking... (dish washer provided)
We can do our own laundry (washing machine and dryer too)
Ironing..... stand fan... heater... hair dryer...
4 sets of plates, cups, glasses, bowls, pans, pots...
What else did I miss?
Oh, the rates..... 
For our 7 nights, it cost around $1100.00
I think the rates vary depending on peak and non peak season...
So that is about it....
Happy Staying!!

  8. Oohh so this is how the apartment looks like! A bit small but at least you have everything needed... and the rates are quite reasonable considering the location. Will consider this place if we travel to Melbourne next time!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
