My 3rd time to Melbourne!

Melbourne, Australia

I am going to sidetrack from posting about my graduation trip and blog about my recent trip to Melbourne. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have been to Melbourne for 3 times. The first time when I was here, we were gambling around with beer in our hands. Getting a little tipsy in the casino. Met a stranger who gave us money to bet. Loitered around the streets to find more alcohol. Bunked in with the other two girls. Lol! This sounds so UNLIKE ME but nonetheless, we had a pretty fun and crazy night!!

I hibernated in my room the second time I was here cos all the shops were closed when I woke up. It was S.O…B.O.R.I.N.G!

And….I finally went out to explore in this city on my third time here!ย 

It was S.O…B.E.A..U.T.I.F.U.L! So happy that I managed to take such a nice photo that made the whole trip was so worth it! ๐Ÿ˜€

I rented a bike from one of the Bike Share stations which is easily found in Melbourne.

The Bike Share station will look like the photo on the left. I took this photo from the internet cos I forgot to take a photo of it. The Bike Share is designed for short trips across the city. I paid AUD2.50 with my credit card for the daily access fee. There is also a AUD50 security deposit for each bike which will be returned to you. The trip is free if is within 0-30 minutes and you will have to pay extra subsequently according to the trip duration.

@ Swanston Street. Nice clouds! ๐Ÿ™‚

Flinder Street Station. Sunny weather always make the photos look much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.”

A pleasant surprise after a heavy downpour in the evening. ๐Ÿ™‚

An interesting sight is that the other side of the sky was very gloomy.

This is the bridge that links to the Crown Entertainment Complex.

Interesting street performance.

The Melbourne Skyline at night with reflections on the Yarra River. Enjoying inner peace while cycling along the Yarra River. I love to cycle and the other country that I enjoyed cycling at is Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Art Centre Tower from afar and it reminds of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. ย I wanna go Paris very badly!!

Interesting building structure.

Flinder Street Station at night.

Captivating night view.

Bought my fav Jacobs Creek sparkling wine and enjoyed my lonely drinking session in the hotel’s room. I am definitely not feeling emo but just a little alcoholic.

I finished the whole bottle by myself. Tadah! This is not the way to enjoy wine but heck, I just want to get drunk.

And…Aha! I really got drunk and start taking stupid self-shots.

Australia feels like a second home to me now cos I visit this country more often than I go to town in Singapore. I am starting to enjoy my stay here cos there are a lot of hidden gems in this country.

I wanna go to Great Ocean Road, Grampians National Park,ย Ayers Rock and Phillip Island in Victoria. I gonna conquer all these places one by one and I really hope that I will have kaki to travel with me to all these places.

Australia, I am seeing you again tomorrow! 5th time to Sydney, here I come! Hahah! ๐Ÿ˜‰
