It's such a beautiful place and I took like 500++ pictures... I wanted to upload so many pictures but I finally decided otherwise (1) cos my laptop keeps 'hanging', (2) you might get bored and (3) I'm just too lazy..:)
Anyway, here is our journey..
Arrived in Surrey Hills (that's where we meet the rest of the group) from Melbourne City. Lydia & I took the train and got lost a couple of times. The train system is darn complicated.. Anyway, Surrey Hills is this quiet little town with RAILWAY CROSSING!!! We sat there for awhile and watch a couple of train passed by while waiting for the others.. and let me tell you this.. its so peaceful just to hear the horn 'tooting' in the distance, watch the bell ring, the lights turn red, the bar goes down, the train whooshes by, the bell stops ringing, the bar goes up and the cars goes thru again... just like clockwork.. I know, Malaysia also got train.. but I've never set down an watch train going by.. maybe cos the weather is too hot..
We rush there cos we were worried that we couldn't get a table.. but we were lucky.. manage to get one without waiting.. but word of advice, try to get there early.. if not, you might have to wait your turn..

Miss Marple's Famous Fingers
And 'drum rolls please'.... their famous delicious yummylicious.... SCONES!!!
I'm not really a fan of scones.. but these scones are great.. not too heavy, not too dry.. and I topped with jam and lots of cream... I like!!!
Pic 1 : Cottage Pie . A bit to thick for my liking..
Pic 2 : Miss Marple's Sundae Best.. extremely sinful...
There is a funny story behind this. As we were having our meal, we noticed 2 elderly lady and 1 elderly man sitting behind our table.. and on their tables are 3 huge desserts.. They were just eating, and enjoying it.. its lunch time.. everybody else was having 'real' food.. and this 3 couldn't be bothered.. they just ordered their dessert.. When we finished, we were stuffed so we decided to order 1 dessert and share among 5 of us.. When the elderly group saw us, the old man called us "weak"... haha.. we 5 young people were called weak by an old man... but yeah, we are weak.. we couldn't even finish it.. it is big..
Pic 1 : Tea Leaves
Pic 2 : Inside. They sell really cute stuff. I bought some tea leave strainers in a shape of a tea pot and a house. You lift of the top of the house, put your tea leaves in, close it and dip it into your cup fo hot water.. There was even one in the shape of a robot.
Pic 1 : Pie in the Sky. Heard that they have really good pies but we were too late. They closed @ 4.30pm..
Pic 2 : Walkway in Olinda Village
I like this shot that I took.. I wanted to take pic of the flowers but manage to captured my sis & friends too..
