God, I LOVE Melbourne. Everything about it makes me so satisfied. The food, the people, the fashion, the trams. Whenever I do visit Melbourne, I make it a point to have an Aussie breakfast and a really good cafe latte.
My first stop - Brekky at Vic Markets
It has been a very long time since I had eggs florentine. It has been a VERY long time since I've had spinach this good.
My friend drives a sweet-as car. I'm jealous. Obviously, I will be 50 by the time I own a sportscar. My next car is an Audi SUV. No, it won't be a mummy car... hehe!
He took me on a spin around Melbourne. Don't ask me what these buildings are... I just snapped happily. He's a sexy thing too, so I was really enjoying the looks we were getting from pedestrians! ;) Blasted the music and it was a purrfect experience.
Ok, I know this one. It's the Parliament House. *feeling proud of myself*
The trams are a nice necessity to Melbourne's public transport system. But some of the older trams are gross. I heard they were loaned from the Swiss. Yuck. I don't think the Swiss expected the Aussies to be THAT dirty.
St. Vincent's Hospital... one of the best hospitals in Australia.
This place is legend. If you ever visit Melbourne, you must try hot chocolate from San Cirirro at Brunswick Street.
The shop next to the chocolate shop... now, was this part of the chocolate shop?
The Spanish donuts are amazing dipped in thick milk chocolate.
The hot chocolate is sooooo thick that it forms a thick chocolate layer on top. One cup is enough to make ANY girl happy. Perfect for the breakup blues. Guaranteed.
This is what I'm talking about!!! This is the shiiitttzzz!!! Haha!
Lets have a closer look, shall we??
*dying in chocolate heaven* Do you see how thick that layer is? Seriously... You guys are missing out. Get on that plane now!
After all that chocolate, we needed to walk it off. We strolled down Flinders Lane... Don't mind my random pictures. I liked this store. I love how grunge the backstreet alleys of Melbourne are. Gotta love the character here.
These places serve the BEST coffee. I had coffee in Italy, and trust me... it can't compare to Melbourne's cafes. The Danish are the biggest drinkers of coffee but man... their coffee sucks. The poor souls. If they had this good a coffee in Denmark, the Danish will be having coffees every 5 minutes.
I even get home made cafe lattes... with Koko black handmade chocolates. Haha! Just when you think I was chocolated-out...
Figs on fried cheese is sinfully good.
Now on to cute pictures. A very close friend of mine gave birth 2 months ago. This little bubby was one of the reasons why I really wanted to visit Melbourne. How cute are her fat cheeks?
And another kid who I really really wanted to see for the longest time. The parents never post pictures of her on facebook so I had no idea she will look so gorgeous in real life. She loves to kiss and hug people. I want one!
That's all folks! I'm going back to Melbourne this Thursday night. Melbourne is an amazing place. I think I will make Australia my home again soon.
