Victoria Market and 55 Webb St

Fast forward for awhile i would like to share with u guys the famous Queen Victoria Market~~

Queen Victoria Market is one of the main tourist attraction point of Melbourne, known for its wide selection of stuffs u can find there, from shirts, to snacks, to artistic stuffs, to people doing live portrait drawing, to people selling toys, all at a affordable price and great deals, example 5 sets of key chains pack (1 pack have 6) cost 5 dollar.....and things like this ^^ i manage to get something well extraordinary from there as well ^^















For breakfast we had a nice meal just on the row of cafes near the market, with Uncle John joining us for it, sadly we're too hungry to remember to take pics and therefore sorry Uncle John when you read this (and i know you do~thanks for that ^^) and thanks alot for buying us that lovely breakfast and a lovely dinner beforehand~~ Pictured here is my all time favorite, Egg Benedict, well that specific cafe serves a not-so-generous portion of Egg Benedict, they usually comes in the form like this plus 2 toasted bread with baked potato and some side salad as well, but, let me explain wat this is, its basically, two poached eggs, each serve on top of a toasted bread and served with Hollandaise sauce which is like a creamy soury sauce, that is like mayonnaise, but with more flavor and fragrance in it.....a poached egg is prepared by boiling a pot of water, put a big spoon in it first, then crack the egg onto it, and then proceed to wait for it to cook about 70 percent, or if the egg is in room temp, about 2 minute 30 to 40 seconds, and then use the spoon to scoop it up, it should have a solid egg white but a runny yolk in it.....















The market, it looks exactly like a pasar malam, but without the foul smell and the hotness from the sun~














































Theres even a wine tasting booth and u can purchase their homemade wine as well, seen here is the wine barrel~















Back at Collingwood, come across this buggy~wont it felt cool driving this in normal road?















And then proceed to the house that we spend our remaining holiday in, its a normal house that the landlord, which lives opposite, rents out to visitors or backpackers, its located in 55, Webb St, Collingwood, and following is the pictures from doorstep, to bathroom..































A nice artistic spiral stairs greets u while u stepped in....and dun u just love those floors!!















The living hall, with kitchen, plates, pans, kitchenware and cutlery, fridge, oven, u name it ! Its there!















From the spiraling stairs lead to the 2nd floor, and theres 1 Double Bed just after the staircase finish~















Dad going to the backyard quick to have his tobacco session~















On 2nd floor, dun seem to have this kinda design in Msia huh???















A Queen Bed in a warm and cozy room after the Double Bed, still remember the electric bed heater?? Its present for the Queen Bed, but not the Double Bed unfortunately...















Bathroom is mint!!!! (mint means in the best condition ever in Aussie sland..)














































42 inch TV for World Cup what could possibly be better than this?!?!?!















Kitchen..














The backyard..















Noe wats this? This is a barbecue stove, BBQ-ready this house is....^^















Dad relaxing in the fine weather of Melb..















A pigeon house??















And to let u guys noe my favorite chocolate in Australia...















They're call Turkish Delight, but basically its chocolate, with raspberry jelly in it !!!!














































Dad having been there with a mission of trying the different kinds of beer that Melb has, and he tried alot of variety, VB, Fosters, Carlton Draught, Budweiser, and so on, and this one, Sapporo, is from Japan actually, its the oldest brand in Japan apparently~~















Since 1870......















But strangely....its Made in Canada..=.="















Saw a GTR R35 blitz past.....
















The house, is a joy to stay in, with everthing u could possibly dream of its there, u can plug ur iPod, if u have on, to a radio or player compatible with iPod, its amazingly artistic, and everything is in top shape~! Juzzzz one small thing.......there's no Wifi connection...well there is, but the landlord say the electric guy did something to the cables in that area and the wifi became unstable due to that...but it will be fixed...i hope....it cost us 1200AUD for 8 days of staying, and judging from the state of the house, and the position of it (its just 1 minute away from Smith St, which is the liveliest, crowded street in Collingwood....i say its worth the price, yes it is almost RM4000 for 8 days of staying, but when ur traveling to a country that has 3 times the currency of RM, u are prepared to spend dun u.....and 55 Webb St is a sure choice to be recommended.....
