Part 2! (scroll down for part 1 :D)

Met with ex-5adilians for lunch and dinner the next day!
Me with Xiaxun and Fang, opposite is Melissa with her Monash batchmates!
Ate icecream with them later too. Weirdly one of the better flavours there is durian. i have no idea why. Durian icecream in malaysia only can get from the ciplak icecream brand which taste like they used diluted cream to make their icecream. Not that i don't enjoy them still though :D

Me and my sis also went to the Flemington racecourse the next morning. They also have a gambling place nearby and there was this sign:
Haiz... gamblers.

Then we went over to Footscray park where they had a community centre/art gallery. Outside was a cafe and we had our Fisherman's? breakfast there.
See the ham, salami, lettuce, cheese, pickles and salsa. *salivate* I miss the big portions of australian serving
Hot chocolate!
Soy chai! Tea served with honey and fresh soy milk.

At night we went to a fusion Jap restaurant called Wabi Sabi near St Kilda beach

Cute deco. Real tree in the middle of the dining area.

Plum wine. Super nice :D

Fried squid
Main dish: Blue-eyed grilled fish with mashed potato+asparagus

Me with the dessert: Pear creme brulee with green tea ice cream. (this is becoming more like sook's food adventure in aussie)

The skyline in st kilda beach. We went there to see penguins but what the heck... obviously the penguins were sleeping. hahahaha. + It was too dark to see anything. My sis said the penguins were even smarter than us. They choose to sleep in the warm burrows while we idiots were wondering beside the sea at night during winter.

Next day was city day! Used the train there and arrived at Southern Cross station

Behind me is Etihad stadium. Pronounced as "Idiot" stadium by australians (seriously. i heard them annoucing the name on a tourist bus)

We went to DFO (Direct Factory Outlet) where you can find discounted items (from past season, or damaged goods, etc) from most major brands in the city. The super cheap items are usually defected though

Waiting for the tram after visiting DFO
We then went to the Royal Arcade where Koko Black is located (siao chen, are you salivating now?)
Me with my belgian spoil... kuahahhaha. delicious

Chocolates for sale. Each chocolate is about $2= rm6

More buskers. Yeen... you can keep this option open as an alternative if you need extra pocket money. ahahhahaa. i think he got quite a lot of coins that night

Then I got belanja-ed in a super nice fine dining restaurant- The Point in Albert Hill. It's something like my bday celebration since I was turning 20 at the stroke of midnight.
12am, 12th July 2009- me and my sis enjoying our desert of souffle.

On my bday, my sis brought me to St Kilda again to go see the craft market.
Luna park. $45/entry. I think Sunway Lagoon beats Luna park's ass anytime.

At the craft market! A lot of handmade stuff- soap, necklaces, mugs, clothes, bags, etc. One store was selling bangles made out of forks and spoon!

My sis!

Random shot

Cutey pie
Posing under the bridge

Then we went to San Churros cause my sis wanted to belanja me their chocolate fondue.

The whole set

Super nice. U dip your churros, strawberry, bananas or pretzel cookie into the melted chocolate then u can coat with peanuts or popcorn. hahahaha. damn nice
Everybody wants to pet daisey

Then we went on to South Melb market.
My sister made me sit on this toy car T_T

Me and daisey!
We bought dips and cheese here.

I went out with xx again the next day to docklands then to crowne. (i know i prob missed a few places i went to. without photos..... i can't remember)
Weird statues at the port
At the ferris wheel (which wasn't functioning)

Beside Yarra? river
Me and xx

Camwhoring at the pesdestrian walk leading up to crowne hotel (super gigantica gambling area with a lot of super expensive restaurants located inside). Lots of drunkards and weird people along this road at night

Too bad we forgot to bring our passports (so we can proove that we were above 18 to enter the casino area) but we decided to just watch the fire show and enjoy a slice of cheesecake

Mars bar cheesecake. Chose this cause i know i won't find it here. hahaha. pretty sweet tho.

Fire show! It starts every hour with coordinated burst of flames from each "tower" lining the river edge
Super cool shot :D Fire in motion

Thus ends my post. Next one shall be about the Great Ocean Road (which sadly i don't have a lot of pictures of. I accidentally left the dvds containing those photos in aussie)
