melb part 1

23 March 2009, 23:33

so the brother unit had to test out this gps thing for work where basically he goes to diff cities in aus and drives around and takes notes and stuff. the mothership went with him to brisvegas, the fathership to perth and i to melbourne- city of trams, crazy hook turns and fabulous food!

but first i had to endure plane food. theres something about plane food that i quite enjoy. not so much the taste but more the breaking up of journey. we economy class passengers had the choice of the sandwich OR AN APPLE. seriously we couldnt have both we had to choose! the sandwich label read ‘beef, cucumber & dijonnaise on wholewheat bread’. what they failed to mention was the ‘cucumber’ were PICKLES yeuch at least there was cheese in it which ya know was weird since it wasnt on the label… meh FAIL

the brother unit had a different flight from me which was delayed so i consoled myself at gloria jeans with a cup of hot chocolate and the most awesomest gingerbread i have ever eaten! seriously it was so delicious! figures that it was made in melb and that i could hardly find any gloria jeans so before coming back to syd i walked thru 3 terminals just to return to the same gloria jeans to buy a supply of gingerbread hmm that’s dedication no?

we stayed in st kilda about 1 street away from luna park. yes im so tiny in this photo and i knew i couldnt be seen so i was happily scoffing my gelato

the days were spent driving up and down 4 main roads in certain time frames which meant no time to go shopping or eating which was ok cos i am poor haha

my diy falafel pocket from the falafel kitchen. i didnt put enough garlic sauce but it was still tasty. and healthy. so healthy i had to buy some cake for later =P

and driving thru random streets we came across this random graffiti on a building near some train lines at clifton hill. decided to chance taking jumping shots and run screaming when the boom gates went clang clang and started lowering haha i promise we werent being stupid and waited sensibly behind the gates while the train passed

and some more random graffiti!

burger time!

om nom nom. yeah that burger was huge. i made it about 3/4 of the way thru before feeling burgered out. and then turned to cake heh but that will be for the next post =P



  1. omg what happened to the poor gingerbread man’s legs?!

    that’s an amazing jumping shot btw. burnt off most of your lunch surely! and lol at your burger shot

    ps. can’t believe you had to choose between a sandwich and an apple!

  3. Airplane sandwich or apple. Tough choice…

    Why am I not surprised you went back to stockpike gingy? :)

    The whole jumping thing is the kind of crazy thing that my sister would want me to shoot. Thing is though, where is the Toyota?

    Ooo… Can’t wait for the next post!

  8. I love the creative graffiti all over Melbourne. It seems more street art than the usual tags we get scrawled on our walls. Love that jumping shot too!
