I am sorry for the really really bad publishing rate! I am seriously having one hell of a semester and it is literally draining me out like crazy on the weekdays. And when the weekend comes, I just want to do nothing and laze around. But, the good and relaxing times just passes by TOO QUICK and before I know it, the weekend will be over! ): totally totally sad about that....
Anyways, I am still left with two weeks of studies then my exam is about 3 weeks away.. )): Brightside is, I'll be back in Malaysia from mid of December till end of February! I am in neeeeeeeeed of some friends quality time and am so glad I am heading home to all of them!!! :D Maybe we will go somewhere for vacay???? Well it doesn't really matter to me where we go, as long as we are all together!
I know I have been super backdated with my posts and this post is going to backdate even more but just bear with me... It's just these memories that I have to commemorate.
This will be a food post of all the food we had while mum was here! It's been awhile since I properly did a full food post. And here goes!
First meal out was to Korean food! I seriously do enjoy a good Korean meal! Especially in Melbourne, the Korean meal is so so so good! Malaysia's can go fly kite.. with that I only mean the Korean BBQ because we can seriously get good quality cuts of meats here!
In short, I really loved the food! It was authentic and GOOD! The meat were all PERFECT! Have no complains whatsoever of this place. And I'll definitely be back!!
Basically these three that we ordered we all my favourites! Whenever I go to Rose Garden, these are the only ones I'll order and also their Duck Fried Rice. These are the ONLY four dishes that I will order and they are seriously so so good!
I used to patronize Rose Garden so often last time and now that I only do every couple of months, whenever I see these pictures, I miss it so much! I literally want to eat them right now, this instance! )):
Next stop, The Meat and Wine Co!!! Had this the night before we went to Lakes Entrance :) One of my favourite restaurants for dinner in Melbourne. Somehow I know, every single time I get there, eventho they are pricey, I know I could always depend on their consistently good food :)
And because I was there at Southbank earlier than the rest, I lingered around to capture some sunset shots first. I don't think I can say this enough, I absolutely absolutely LOVE the view from and at Southbank!! My most ultimate ULTIMATE FAVOURITE PLACE TO BE IN MELBOURNE!
Now. just let the gorgeous pictures of the view do the talking! I still have more pictures of this view at night when it is even prettier coming up after the food!
And that is it for the food shots because I was too engrossed with my ribs till I totally forgotten to take pictures of the other food on the other side of the table.
I'll always love The Meat and Wine Co! :D Totally satisfied my tummy that night!
Thennnnnn, of course I HAD TO take pictures of the night view! This will be my first time capturing the Melbourne CBD night view from Southbank with my camera! Absolutely loveeeeeee it when the night comes! In my books, buildings come to life when the darkness comes in!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LIGHTS! It makes me so so happy just by sitting there and staring at it! But now, it makes me even happier to be able to capture it as perfect as I see it with my own eyes! Baby camera, I love you too much!
One of the days, or actually for a few days we were at Victoria Market for some food shopping and souvenir shopping. And once you are at Victoria Market, you can never say no to em' Spanish Churros/Spanish Donuts man!! They are literally THE BEST CHURROS EVER! And not to mention, so cheap as well! It is at $1 for 1 or $6 for 7! So worth it and SO GOOD!
Whenever I am in Vic Market, I'll definitely definitely buy these!!
After those churros for breakkie, we went walking around the city for somemore shopping before settling down @ Chinatown for lunch.
I haven't been back to this dumpling house in ages man. Like years... I used to go there when I first got to Melbourne with Jia Shen because it is dirt cheap and the food is ok for the price you pay. But I think over the years, this place has gotten worse... Don't think I'll ever be back again.
Next item isn't a food picture but it is my new love! Mum got it for me and I LOVE IT! It is so so pretty! Not exactly cheap but I love it... Need I say more? :P HEHE
Next food itinerary is a hearty dinner at home over the weekend as mum and pa was going to head back to Malaysia in the next two days.
The next day, me and the boyfie decided to head down to the city for some nice lunch. It was because he had to head back to Clayton anyways and I tagged along with him to the city to just catch lunch together :)
The food was pretty good but really pricey.. We paid $63... just for three dishes.. Expensive eh? And for the price we paid, it wasn't really worth it lor I think.. Anyhoos, I still did enjoy lunch tho. More of the view and the company and the cuisine :)
And then after lunch, the two of us went to meetup with Wei Nian and Tek Yik for more lunch because we weren't exactly filled up with the japanese food we had earlier. And so, we went for cheap and filling asian food.
This place has a huge hugeeeee selection of food man! I am so coming back to try somemore of their food! According to nian, their roast duck is really good! Altho I am not much of a duck fan, but if and when someone says its good, I would usually definitely try it!
Next stop on the second last day out to the city with mum, we had Korean food! We just had to lah ok! You can't exactly get really really awesome good ones in Malaysia everywhere... In Melbourne, almost always, whatever korean restaurant you go to, you would most likely be served with a decent meal.
Oriental Spoon is my usual go to place for korean food! They always serve good and authentic korean food!! I especially love their bento lunches and their sweet and chilli chicken! Have been coming back so so frequent in the last 4 years especially for big group dinners because they have plenty of space and they are always consistent and good!
Lastly, on the day mum left back to Malaysia, we went down to the city in the morning for last minute walking and for some brunch!
We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch! It was super duper filling but yums! This is I think the only cafe on degraves street that I always come back to! Mainly because they serve all day breakfast but also because they are pretty good!
This girl right here cannot get any fussier with brunch food and if I say its pretty good, it is pretty good! *ahem clears throat* HEHEHE
And that concludes the food we had while mum was here in Melbourne! So so glad to have spent quality time with them! Looking forward till next April because mum will be coming again!!!
I am ending this post with a picture of malaysian snack goodness that mum brought over for me and the bf :)
I am hoping to at least have my recent Venus Bay trip post up and running before I go hiatus due to exams but from the looks of it, I don't think I can make it... HMMM... I'll try okays?
Until then, lots of love and kisses!
