I am obsessed with good coffee that’s why when I was in Melbourne I tried to drink at least one a day from a different place.
One of my most memorable meals in Melbourne was the pizza at D.O.C. Pizza where we celebrated Sam’s birthday. It was a double celebration since I also celebrated my love for pizza.
One of the most popular attractions in Victoria, Australia is the Twelve Apostles, a collection of limestone stacks found in Port Campbell National Park.
The highlight of my trip to Melbourne last March was going to 12 Apostles which was a four hour trip from Melbourne via the scenic Great Ocean Road.
Our main purpose for going to Phillip Island was to see the famous Penguin Parade which happens at sunset everyday.
I’m sure you’ve heard about Filipino hospitality, a trait known to most foreigners who have met Filipinos. We were the recipient of that during our trip to Melbourne last March.
When I learned I was going to Melbourne I planned on eating a lot of lamb in restaurants serving authentic Aussie fare. It didn’t happen. Instead I got to eat lamb souvlaki twice and I was more than satisfied.
I have a confession. I have never been to the National Library of the Philippines. But I went to the State Library of Victoria because it’s smack dab in the middle of the CBD in Melbourne.
You could sum up the reasons I like Melbourne Central mall with these three places – Little Library, Plantation Coffee & Cupcake Central. Of course there’s also the nice mix of retail therapy, wood flooring and funky atmosphere.
Eating fast food in a mall is not exactly on my list when I go abroad but Deb assured me Hanaichi was better than your regular fast food fare.
