I didn't do a lot of super touristy sight-seeing stuff since I just stayed in the city.
So Yaxue brought me to the big H&M, which is located Melbourne's GPO.
Melbourne’s GPO is located in heart of Melbourne’s CBD and is one of the most iconic buildings in the city. Previously the General Post Office, the heritage listed building now plays home to H&M, along with a selection of amazing eateries, Larsen Jewellery and Absolutely Altered and Tailored.
|She said this is one of those spots that people always Instagram, hahaha.|
Flinders Street Railway Station
Flinders Street is the busiest suburban railway station in the southern hemisphere, with over 1500 trains and 110,000 commuters passing through each day. Listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, its 708-metre main platform is the fourth longest railway platform in the world.
|This looks so majestic, especially when compared to our MRT stations. AND WHY IS AUSTRALIA'S SKY ALWAYS SO PRETTY??!|
Donwoori Korean BBQ Restaurant
This was a very un-touristy meal, but omg this is the best Korean BBQ I have ever had. Their beef bulgogi was my favourite.
|They cook the meat with charcoal. Not sure if it made the food taste better or if my logic is flawed, heh.|
You can read more reviews here.
Market Lane Bar
We went to the bar at InterContinental because Gary and their friends worked there, so we had free cocktails.
|I think this was called Chocolate Delight or something.|
Chris ordered the Sticky Date Pudding and went crazy over it because it was just that good. They served it with fried ice cream on the side, which I think is enough of a reason to order it if you ever visit that place.
Queen Victoria Market
Since Yaxue lived right next to the market, I decided to explore alone for a bit. To be honest, there was nothing much to see or buy? Just lots of tourist souvenirs and organic produce.
|I thought this looked quite pretty though!|
And since Melbourne is known for its good coffee and cafe culture, I just had to visit a hipster cafe. Krimper was located along an alley, which already gave it extra hipster points.
|Our hipster food, hehe.|
|My french toast|
I have been looking forward to this ever since I saw it on Instagram!!!
|Nutella Swirl. They dig a hole in the ice cream and fill it with Nutella, yumz.|
This was some random dinner at the Hilton hotel, cos they bought the Groupon deal. It's located next to the Crown Melbourne Gas Brigades and Yarra River, so they view is pretty nice :)
|Wilderness Beef Tenderloin. Juicy beef and cheesy risotto!|
|Pana Cotta. This was kinda meh.|
