Travel Vlog here:
Hey people we are back! It was a super tiring trip (again!) but we totally enjoyed ourselves! I actually missed chinese food because we had cafe food almost everyday. Eggs, toast, coffee, cakes and this repeats. I think I probably gain a few pounds but it’s okay cos I enjoyed myself so much! :D:D
I was abit stressed up during the trip because I had to come up with an idea for work but other than that everything is well and fun!
Today I’m going to share what I wear for this trip and also all the places (pics not included!) we’ve been to! Detailed post will be coming up after Bali and that will probably take awhile so be patient yeah!
Finally Australia is checked! I love Australia! I want to come back to Melbourne again! Actually I don’t like to visit the same place more than once or twice. For me I like to spend money on places that I’ve never been to instead of the same city. But Melbourne? Yes I will definitely go back again. But not so soon because I will want to visit Perth and Sydney first. =D
We took Scoot to Melbourne and my overall fare was about $1100 for two. Added insurance and checked in luggage for both of us. I almost upgrade to ScootBiz because it was a 7hrs and 40minutes flight but Simon nearly killed me for that. =P
Our Airbnb was about $640 for 6 nights and we spend about $1100 (food and expenses) for 7 days.
Alright let’s start with the blog now.
No make up with my open shoulder green knit top at Changi Airport.
Day 1: Took Skybus to Southern Cross station and had lunch at Hungry Jacks. Their Hungry Jacks is like our burger king!
We took tram to our airbnb next, which is at Collingwood. (will do full review on that!)
Tram got stopped and delayed because of the demo going on outside.
arrived at our Airbnb and changed to a new outfit.
Colorful off shoulder knit that I got from Ezbuy and my suede skirt from Carousell. Also with my new Gola sneakers I bought just one day before my trip because I think I can’t survive with Superga. This pair costs me $130 bucks but I’m very happy with it.
Couple shots around the neighbourhood just outside Pavlov’s Duck at Smith Street.
We were freezing but still need a selfie. Sweet right this shot LOL!
Dinner was at The Higher Ground Cafe (little bourke street) where we had atas Duck Confit, side dish and Coffee.
2nd Day: Hiking day.
Breakfast at Breakfast Thieves (Gore Street) before going to the National Rhododendron gardens.
Had Pie in the Sky for lunch (apparently #1 in Victoria), ordered takeaway and ate it at the Gardens.
Explore National Rhododendron Gardens (so many pretty flowers!) and HUGE TREES!
couple shot again. ^^
Big yellow tree!
Us admiring the super tall trees. Honestly I have a thing for tall trees, I don’t know why myself either but I find them very pretty. I don’t know if I blog about it before but one of the places on my to go list is the Sequotia National Park at California. The trees there are HUMONGOUS! Go google it.
The tiny me with the BIGBIG TREES!!
Simon told me there was this super huge tree where I can stand inside the trunk, YES but we didn’t have enough time to head over there. 🙁 So end up we took a bus and head to Kalorama lookout instead. 🙁
Didn’t have much time anymore so we are here waiting for the bus to go back to the station where we will head back to the city 😀
And here’s my tiring face with my ootd. Can’t show you the details of my dress cos I was freezing but it’s a dress from Warehouse.
For dinner we had Mappen Ramen (bourke street), (rhymes like melbourne?) and it was full of MSG. lol!
Day 3: 1 Day Grampians National Park tour with KKDAY. 🙂 Will write a full review on it too.
Standing at the Grand Canyon. I think I might have developed a interest for climbing rocks now. :O
Top H&M, neckerchief H&M, Denim shorts Cotton On, Stockings Topshop.
Outfit definitely not appropriate hahaha.
Melbourne sky is so blue!!
Us looking at the silverband falls. 😀
Dinner was Mcdonalds and lunch was provided.
Day 4: Exploring the city, EUREKA SKYDECK and shopping!
Using Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte on the lips. 🙂
Breakfast was at Hammer and Tongs (Brunswick street).
then went to St Patrick Cathedral Melbourne. So magnificent!! Also visited St Paul’s.
Took some photos there too. And this is one of it.
Top from theclosetlover. 😉
Lunch was at Industry Beans (Rose Street) and Simon bought his aeropress there too.
Dinner was at Nandos because we were too tired to walk. We went to Eureka Skydeck 88 after dinner and it was so scary. We paid extra to go into the glass cube (the edge) and this cube extends from the tower’s 88th floor!!! The whole cube is glass made so the experience was quite scary! Will talk more about it in future posts!
Day 5: City, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, State Library of Victoria, Hosier lane!
First time sitting and playing around a tree. LOL
State library of Victoria is so beautiful! Went to Mr Tulk’s cafe too.

Then to Hosier Lane to check out all the graffiti! It’s a must visit!
I’m just quoting but yea, ‘fuck trump’ is on the wall.
Dinner was at Emporium, Spud Bar. Amazing potato dishes! Before we head back we also bought sushi from Sushi Hub.
Day 6: St Kilda, Queen Victoria market and Night noodle market!
First thing in the morning got coffee from the cafe right beside our Airbnb. It’s called the Knife Shop Cafe.
Me with coffee! 😀
Took a bus to St Kilda to visit St Kilda Pier! We spotted penguins hiding behind the rocks! I also wanted to visit Luna Park but it was closed!! =( Only open from friday to sundays!
Pink biker jacket from Ezbuy and my dress from (I forgot where).
Had lunch at Little blue restaurant. 🙂
Went to Queen Victoria Market next and had mussels from The Mussel Pot, fish and chips from the market food court and coffee from Market Lane Coffee! Wanted to go Old Melbourne Goal but we were too late. :/

Day 7: Had breakfast at The Knife Shop cafe and rush to the airport to catch our plane. LOL. Really fun trip! I miss Melbourne already!!
Oh by the way I actually spend money on the plane for the first time in my life. 20 bucks for instant food and coconut water. Guess we were too hungry. lol!
