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.

Went to Federation Square to get some tourist information from the Melbourne Visitor Centre.

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.

We finally decided to book Extragreen Travel Agency tour. 

The sky almost dark after we book the tour, thus, we went back to my mother's friend apartment for simple dinner and rest.

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.
