Melbourne Day 2 - 4th May 2016

After having a simple breakfast at my mother's friend apartment, we took tram to the city.


First stop we went to Flinder's Train Station which is the main train station for Melbourne to Victoria suburb town. 


After that, we went to Spencer Outlet Centre, and i saw the below creative message. 


Next, we went to Harbour town, the place where Melbourne star is situated at. 



There's a lot of artistic element at the Harbour town. The scenery is nice. The sea is so aqua and clear.






We can even rent a bicycle to ride along the marina if we want. 



Went to Pho Bo Ka Mekong Vietnam at Swanston Street for lunch.

The pho is very autentic vietnam pho,is similar to our Malaysia "kai xi hor fun" , the meat is soft, tender, and juicy. The Prawn Roll is filled with basil leaves, rice noodles, and prawn. The restaurant is very generous with the portion. We were so full after the lunch. This Vietnam restaurant is one of the famous Vietnamese restaurant in Melbourne. 

After lunch, we went to State Library of Victoria. Pass by RMIT University and saw a special protest stone.

The tourist package from Melbourne Visitor Centre is so expensive. Thus, we went to few travel agency at Swanston street to survey for their tour price to Philip Island and Great Ocean Road.

Melbourne Day 1 - 3rd May 2016

Hello everyone, my blog is back online again finally after 3 years.

Back to the topic, i went to Melbourne with my mother on 3rd of May.

We took Airasia X to Melbourne. The flight time from KL to Melbourne is 8 hours. Luckily i downloaded few addictive game to play in the plane during the flight, if not i will be terribly boring.

                                 

By the time we reach Melbourne, it was already 8pm local time. We took a taxi to my mother's friend apartment at Berkeley street. 

After put down the luggage, we walk to the tram station and took a free tram to Viva Kebabs at Flinder's street for dinner.

Weather at Melbourne was quite cooling as it is autumn at there. Day is long and night is short during autumn. 

Anyway, the queue was quite long at Viva Kebabs, we order the chicken kebab and we waited for a while for them to make our kebabs. But delicious food is worth the wait.

Anyway, while waiting, we saw some locals order the HSC,Viva Kebabs House special. The portion for HSC is very big with lots of kebab and wedges + fries below the kebab.

The Kebab is crispy, just that the portion is too big for 1 person. 

Went back to my mother's friend apartment by tram after the satisfying and delicious dinner. 

Rest a while for the food to digest , then went to sleep.

Just Be Yourself

Living in this cruel and reality world , life tend to be so complicated sometime. Everyday what we wear , what we do will always be compared , you can't run away from it .We are like wearing an invisible mask everyday. We wear a mask when we go out on the morning , and wear another mask when we reach home at night. We also will be judged , being look in different way , and being look down . You can either live with it or prove them wrong . What if i say , just be yourself , just do what you want , what you like , we really does not need to care about what people think about us, simply because we are who we are . We are limited edition , there's no two person with the same identity , attitude or personality . There only might have similarity between people . Everyone of us is special because we are the only one . 

So, why care so much , just be yourself , but of course do the right thing , not wrong thing. Life is much easier if we be ourself . You can be yourself to make the best out of you . Only you can answer yourself , only you yourself can realize your dream , and only you yourself know what you really want . You are the main character of your life, so why not just be yourself and write a beautiful story of your life all by yourself .

It is hard to be natural , but easy to be fake . But to be natural shows your sincerity and originality , and to be fake shows that you are just another similar person , a prototype of another person . You just need a little bit effort and energy to be natural , but you need a lot of effort and energy to pretend to be a person . Be who you are and say what you feel , because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Be what you are to be a better you . Be control of yourself , your destiny , you are the pen which write your own story of your life. Life is a drama , so just play your part well , and make it a beautiful script .

Don't be a people-pleaser to get everyone's love and respect. But instead , filter what other people say , be confident in yourself and be you yourself . There are are always one in a million that truly appreciate you for who you are . Remember , it's always about quality , not quantity . Numbers doesn't matter , but are the people who matters. If you want people to love and respect you , love and respect them back . Everyone you meet in your life is part of your story , whether they are passerby , stranger , or friend , they played a part in your life , they are the person that contribute and help to make you who you are today .

Be yourself , shine yourself , stand out from others . Being different is beautiful , it's a way to attract people to you . Don't change yourself , instead improve yourself . Being yourself and have confidence make you even more beautiful . You are the one who create your beauty with your attitude , behavior and action . It's all up to you . It's all about you , yourself.

Be yourself , love yourself more , you are wonderful , you are the best. It's your life , make the most out of it . Be the one and only YOU !

Thanks for reading !

Sincerely ,

The one and only ME

Be a Better Me

Alright , i'm here to share something with you all . I am here to sharing my positive spirit with you all . Hope i can somehow make you become more positive . This post is inspired by Jane latest post. But i had been always want to blog about being positive. I mean , a lot of people had been asking me how can i be so positive always . To be honest with you all , i used to be a shy person , a person that not brave and always look down on myself , and a person who can be negative at times . But i guess after gone through a tough life ( those who know me will know how tough my life are ) , i had tried to see thing in different way . I mean , there's always a lot of way to see things . 

As long as we dare to try , everything is possible . You see , we all have choice , either to be happy or sad , so why not choose to be happy over sad . There's no point being sad , because seriously nobody care whether you are sad or not . Of course , you can always post at the social network and emo , but that only will make people saying you just want some attention, and people may also avoid you , because who want to have a emo friend . But being happy is different , when you are happy , you will spread the happiness to others as well . People will also see you as a friendly person and a person that easy to be approach. I mean , what is better than to see other people smile . 

Just learn to smile even you are sad or in a bad mood . You can always watch some comedy , listen to music and do something you like to make yourself happy . Turn the negative spirit to positive spirit and you will definitely see how beautiful life is . Of course , i can be emo also sometimes , what i do is sleep it off , and believe that i will be happy again when i wake up on the next day . Always believe that when a door is close , another door will open . Also believe that good thing will come after a bad thing happen . Because rainbow will only appear after the rain. When you fall down , climb up again and learn to walk again from the place you fall down . Just tell yourself when you face a bad day  that tomorrow will be a better day. Learn from mistake and be tough . 

Being positive is important , it will make you feel that everything you do is so smooth , it's like a lucky charm , you will feel so lucky because when you are positive , you will believe that you can do everything as you believe yourself that you can do it . 

When life gives you a lemon , squash it and make a delicious lemon juice and enjoy it . Or sell the lemon and get some money . No point throw away the valuable lemon when you can make use of it . 

I promise myself to be a better me and be a more positive person , and also help to make other people to be positive as well . So , people , try to be positive . There's no harm trying . Maybe you will like your life even better when you be more positive. 

Okay , this post is my personal thought , if this post offended you in any way , i am sorry . Hope it inspired you though . 


Smile ! It's a gift , don't waste it ! =D

Jayren 

Have a nice day people !
