Rundle Street East In Adelaide

AS THIS IS A RELAXING AND LEISURE GETAWAY, we did not plan anything in advance.  I really don't mind if I just laze around in the apartment or going out for short walks around the vicinity, it really suits me real fine!  NO more waking up calls at 6am in the morning and dragging my legs up to the hotel room in the late evening like those tour groups which I have experienced those days.  Thank goodness I was younger then.... and now, I prefer to go for these free and easy trips... no more time commitments and rushing from one place to another.....

We slept early the night before, replenishing the "lack of sleep" we lost the previous night before and we woke up fully refreshed and ready to start off our second day in Adelaide.  After our hearty breakfast in the apartment, we set out to Rundle Street again, so much to "look and see"... well, with over 1000 retail stores and services, it seems to be a never-ending walk for us...  I really don't mind taking our own time walking leisurely, the weather was simply fabulous.... cooling and yet not windy... very nice!
Before we set out, here I am in front of the apartment hotel...
Oh, I think I was not the only one there.... 
Obviously someone was waving from behind.... 
No sweater on the second day... 
Weather was around 16 to 22 degrees as we set out.... 
From our hotel to Rundle Street, it was just a five to seven minutes walk....
Oh ... er... unless we stopped every now and then to take pictures, it is again a different story...
The railway station is a short distant away from our place....
Along the subway... I mean pathway...
and soon we reached the intersection leading to Rundle Street pedestrian walk...
It was more crowded on Tuesday than the previous day....
Leisure walk was what we did and enjoyed, no time constraint...
Another musician here on the streets...

This reminded me of Ipoh... 
But this is Rundle Street Coffee Central...
And me at 127, Rundle Mall....
Someone is getting ready to shop!
While it was fun to shop and relax.....
We wasted no time busy connecting to the outside  world such as Malaysia!
Cyber Cafe on the Streets!

  1. Ooooo...I loved those buskers overseas. Some of them that I saw were really very very good...and of course, I would give them a bit for their effort. I loved browsing around the shops there too, just browsed, not buy...everything there was way too expensive, couldn't afford. Would just spend on food, eat the stuff they had there - not cheap either, but no choice.

  5. if not mistaken I thot I once heard friends who have been staying in Australia, that Adelaide is a city for the elderly, haha.. so what are you all young girls doing there?? sure nice to relax and follow your own pace when you go travel, afterall it's for "leisure" so don't need to "bok meng" lor :)

  6. What an awesome walk! You had lots of willpower to avoid the coffee stall. Now that you are retired, you are what we call "a lady of leisure".

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...
