"If there is any such thing as a universal question, it may be this: Are we there yet? Generations of children have asked it. They have then grown into adults who have to answer the same question when their children ask." - excerpt from ODB-
But after many trips with him, I guess his laid back attitude has gotten to me. The trip to Melbourne was well-planned as usual but we were more relax. Each morning we wake up, spread the map on the bed and decide where we wanna go.
So this post will be filled with lots and lots of pictures...and I meant really alot.. and was taken throughout our trip there; hence the differences in sky light and weather.
Notice that the sign says '...till late..'. Yeap, I realize in Melbourne they don't have a fix time in closing. If there are no customers or that day is a slow day, they will just close shop. How lucky is that?? *hint to boss*
St. Peter's Eastern Hill.
Its a small church/ chapel located just opposite its well-known neighbour, St. Patrick's Cathedral. They have this quaint, rustic looking, cosy feel to it. Oh, and I like their red door.
The huge and imposing St. Patrick's Cathedral.
Its so impressive and the hugest church I have ever seen. My pictures do it no justice.
The picture on the right is their 'pipe organ' and its like 2 stories high.
2nd pic : Taken from the front towards the back of the cathedral. The door at the end its the front entrance.
2nd pic : See the 2 tallest candles. That's ours. We decided to drop some coins into the offering box and light some candles. I dunno.. maybe it makes us feel holier.. hehe.. nah, its was just for fun.. I guess being inside such a big church makes me feel so small and insignificant..
Just a random view of Melbourne city, taken at the corner of Parliament house.
If you look closely, you will notice a girl lying on the grass. Its common in Melbourne. Its almost the ending of summer and the people there are just trying to catch whatever bit of sun they can.
Hotel Windsor. Just the name sounds grand.
Limo on the road.
Pheww.. That's the last of it. Looks tiring but its actually quite relaxing... Did not manage to visit many places that we planned too..
Forgive me if I have displayed any form of 'jakun-ness'. It's the 'living with passion' part of me that see things very excitedly... and after all, as what some people say, we still live on tree-tops.
OK, just 1 last picture of me. I'm not going to let my sister take the centerstage on my blog..
Erm, and its actually the only picture I could find of me.. all the others have her in them.. And if you still can't tell us apart, she has longer hair then me.. This is ME, not her...
Btw, this post its just the Inner Part sights in Melbourne. Wait for the others :) Oh, and I realise that the pictures on my laptop look much nicer cos I have a darker screen. So please, before you read my blog, lower down the brightness of your screens k? Then my pictures will look much nicer.. cos I selected them based on how they look on my screen.. For my sake, pretty please?
