41 hours in Melbourne

/ Wednesday /
At the Art Gallery- not quite fitting...

Super angles

I really wanted to put out heads in here and have our photo taken but my boyfriend went walkabout. Seems a bit lame to do it yourself.

Ahhh...the famous Melbourne lanes. Sydney DOES seem a bit bland in comparison.

Johnny can be so silly sometimes. Instead of taking the amazingly decorated archway he just took this of me.

3 cups and no girls in sight.

How great are these colours? It was as it someone had perfect placed these milk crates to look like they were trying to run away.

Who am I kidding? I basically wanted to go down to Melbourne to eat at Flowerdrum again. And it was worth it. Especially when they accidentally gave us two desserts. So much for portion control.

I didn't realise the sun set over the water at St Kilda. Too bad it almost blinded Johnny. We had dinner at Ichi Ni which is super cute and has a great view.

Berlin Bar is one of my highlights. Set in Chinatown, you head up the stairs and knock and wait for a hostess to come greet you. I knew I'd love this place when waiting up the top of the stairs there was a sign saying that if you have more then 8 in your group you may not be catered for. Perfect- bars want to be 'intimate' but not enough go to lengths to create that.

The bar is divided into East Berlin and West Berlin each completely themed. East Berlin was a bit emo so we opted for the glamorous West. Gotta mention the toilets too- love the snow covered houses.

I don't care if we were at the Casino, these giant Chinese New Year decorations are fabulous!

Johnny wanted to watch Australia vs Japan in the Asian up finals so we did. What seemed like ten hours later, the guy in the fore ground sums up the night.

Little Creatures on Brunswick Street. What a lifesaver in 40 degree heat! The most exciting part were the tiny beer/cider servings that had. Asian size!

Mr Squiggle, I love you.

St Ali's is the bomb and so is Tori for taking us there. Coffee in siphons, amazing service, to die for food, you have to taste it explain it Fruit Tingle juice, and really really great menu copy. #WIN.


When it's 40 degrees outside your pretty helpless. Thank god for art galleries.

I love this water feature. I think I stood there for a good 10 minutes watching the people behind it and pretending they were watercolour paintings.

I found saw what people loved about Melbourne. It was such a whirlwind trip but all thanks to Johnny who whisked me away and spoilt me the whole weekend!
