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..

  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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
