it was great to get away from sydney for a little bit of change and just relaxing in this beautiful city. no i didn't go to melbourne for australian open, it would have been fun but it wasn't really within my budget as this trip was a bit of a last minute plan. all weekend we were just walking around, enjoying the sun, coffee, food (a lot of them!), street art and quirky laneway shops. i really had a great time. below are a few favourites. i will be uploading more photos in my flickr.
visit: cookie bar for great food and great atmosphere. we only had lunch there but it seems like a cool place at night too, especially if you love beer. the seafood red curry is very yummy.
visit: chimmy's bakery for great coffee and nice breakfast or brunch. i'll definitely have to come back to this place next time when i visit melbourne again.
visit: little cupcakes for the tiniest yet prettiest and most delicious cupcakes! you don't want to miss this one.
explore: melbourne street art graffiti at hosier land and union lane. these two i think are from the same artist called deb - you can find her signature if you take a closer look at both artworks.
