Melbourne

Sorry for the absence. I was back a week ago and ermmm....loser that I am, spent the entire week reading my newly acquired cheese-tastic Stephenie Meyer Twilight series. Cough, really :/

Melbourne was incredible! The kind of holiday that, on day 2, you've forgotten all the petty dramas/don't know what the day and date are/is just bliss. My boy is amazing; not once did he whinge whilst I shopped, and he made me laugh all day, everyday. I'm a lucky girl.

We spend ALOT of time in a French cafe with the best crepes ever (tucked away in a lane inside a lane), checked out an awesome library and a museum/gallery, checked out op-shops, went to the markets a number of times (each time we'd get there, we would overhear things like 'yes, we close in 10 minutes..' or 'today we close early; 20 minutes max'). Haha, we eventually got it right and managed to scoff a whole bag of Spanish donuts, mmm. I bought an awesome hooded leather jacket and a faux fur hat at the market, in addition to some of the boy's Christmas presents and a pair of shoes for dad.

We also took alot of photos, re-visited the jazz bar we had found last time (you guessed it; in a lane, inside a lane, inside another lane...not helped by the rain pissing down!), found an incredible and funky coffee shop, went to an artsy-type market, tried Starbucks for the first time in our lives (meh.), trammed it everywhere, frequented the St. Kilda cake shops, visited a bunch of restaurants (yummy cheap food!), got our photo taken at a well-known pub, visited the boy's sister who lives about an hour and a half outside of Melbourne (and who's cat was the fluffiest, cutest thing that would lick my hair once or twice every time I picked her up :), and even took awesome photos at Union Lane, a Council/government-sponsored 'authorised grafitti' laneway.

Haha, I leave you with this parting shot ;)

Basically Melbourne = love. Except for the weather.

Oh and I also have a post idea. I want to share my unhealthy obsession with oversize costume rings (yeah, don't ask, it's not right, you'll see what I mean)....so I'll take some snaps tonight and post them tomorrow.

withasianstereotypes and yiqin, you should see my bangs now :/
I wrecked them by hacking into them, to trim them, with blunt scissors (blunt scissors because my dad 'borrowed' my good pair). And the result is not good haha. Oh well, they'll grow back.
