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.

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
