Things that I love about Melbourne: Gardens and Foods


One of the many things that I adore about Melbourne is its many parks tucked a little way off or amidst the city centre. I like just to sit or stroll around those gardens, make a nice escape from the hustle bustle of the city activities. On last fine Saturday, me and hubby went to a friend's picnic at Treasury Garden, which located on the eastern boundary of CBD (near Spring st).





Another things about Melbourne of course is its foods!! Today we went to a nice Korean resto called Han Guuk Guan at Melbourne CBD. Only me and hubby ate, so we only ordered two of their famous dishes, since their portion is SO BIG @.@!!

The yummy and infamous sweet and spicy chicken for AUD27 (we couldn't finish it, and left the resto with a full take away box)


My fave Jajangmyon (enough for two people) AUD10. It tastes pretty good ^^

Here's the address if anyone is interested although I think this resto is pretty well known already :)
13A Victoria St Melbourne VIC 3000 - (03) 9639 1747

That's all for now.. Me and hubby just rented a house so we've been busy moving our stuff back and forth :) and I've been quite overloaded with works too...
So...hopefully my next post will be longer :) meanwhile stay safe and happy!

Have a good day everyone!!
God bless

I have a couple of friends who went to Melbourne for school. They both said it was awesome over there. I have to admit I'm jealous of them (and YOU)! In Indonesia there are rarely any parks. I wish our government would do something about it so that people can have alternative places to hang out other than malls! =(

Such a beautiful park...thanks for sharing the pic. That chicken looks great, but I've never tried jajangmyon and I think I would want to steal a bite from someone else's plate before I ordered it for myself.

Good luck with the move.
