Melbourne – Day 4 – Part 2 I read about a Parisian styled laneway with lots of coffee and Italian food before leaving for Australia, but with so much going on, I kind of forgot about this place. That was until we stumbled upon this laneway the previous day as we were exploring the other […]
Melbourne – Day 4 – Part 1 It’s not the tallest building in the world, it’s not the tallest building in Australia either but it is the highest public vantage point in a building in the Southern Hemisphere at 285 m (935 ft). Eureka Tower in Melbourne yields amazing views of Melbourne (at least it really is the […]
Dinner for 10 people in Melbourne, and we didn’t have reservations. Mom’s friends wanted to take us to a new restaurant that they heard is really good. We made our way from the Crown Casino all the to Dainty Sichuan. Dinner for 10 people in Melbourne, and we didn’t have reservations.

When we arrived, we were immediately seated. I was pretty surprised because I was told we didn’t have reservations. There were quite a few people in the lobby area waiting. I was later told that we literally had out big table for 1 hour.
Melbourne – Day 3 – Part 4 Laneways are the (not) scary, (not) ugly, (not) dirty back alley ways of Melbourne. Between the buildings are many (often cobblestone) laneways and lots of graffiti. Without even knowing it, you’ll notice these laneways throughout the CBD (or not). I basically noticed that the sides of many buildings […]
Melbourne – Day 3 – Part 3 Now that I’ve been to Sydney and Melbourne, I remember a few things that are uniquely Melbourne (in my opinion): the cable cars that run through CBD, and the street art (and the laneways…in my next post). We stayed just across the Yarra River near the Crown Casino […]
Melbourne – Day 3 – Part 2 14-16 Market Lane Melbourne, VIC http://www.hutong.com.au/ Auntie knew exactly what she wanted for lunch and guided us to HuTong Dumpling Bar. HuTong is an area in Beijing China that consists of small alley ways (kind of similar to the laneways in Melbourne but very different culturally). Tucked in […]
Melbourne – Day 3 – Part 1 We walked to CBD area to hop onto the Free Tram Zone which includes the area from the iconic Queen Victoria Market, across to Victoria Harbour in Docklands, up to Spring Street and over to Flinders Street Station and Federation Square. We went from Federation Square to Queen Victoria […]
Melbourne – Day 2 – Part 4 (Philip Island Day Tour – Part 3) We’re finally at the point of this day trip! We’re finally going to see the Penguin Parade. I was super excited for this and tried to do a little bit of research before arriving. I found a few rather old home […]
Melbourne – Day 2 – Part 3 (Philip Island Day Tour – Part 2) After an amazing trip to MARU Koala and Animal Park, we had plenty of time to kill before the main attraction of this trip; the Penguin Parade. Extragreen Holidays took us to the Islantis Surf Experience, the Koala Conservation Centre, then […]
Melbourne – Day 2 – Part 2 (Philip Island Day Tour – Part 1) When I started to plan for this trip to Australia, there were a couple things I really really wanted to see in Melbourne. That was to go see the Penguins and touch a koala. After asking my Auntie about this she booked […]
