Gordon Reserve

Gordon reserve is a green space located just adjacent to the corner of Little Collins and Spring Street. If you are on this end of Melbourne CBD, it's a good place to let your kids round around chasing pigeons and enjoy the water fountain.

South Melbourne Market: Port Phillip Mussel and Jazz Festival

You may have noticed that South Melbourne Market is one of our favourite places to visit. We love the vibe and, of course, they have my husband's favourite places, Agathe Patisserie and Clement Coffee Roaster. Agathe Patisserie When we arrived at South Melbourne Market last weekend, the Port Phillip Mussel and Jazz Festival was on. … Continue reading South Melbourne Market: Port Phillip Mussel and Jazz Festival

Sushi Kaiten

My hubby is into sushi train lately and we had Sushi Kaiten for lunch. We arrived around 12pm on Saturday. We parked on an off street parking in front of the restaurant. It's  1P spot and you need to buy ticket. With this one, the tables are bar style and I don't think they have … Continue reading Sushi Kaiten

Pink Strawberry Cake at Bibelot

I really wanted to go to Bibelot by Chez Dre for my birthday but it was cancelled because Little Miss decided to have her nap during afternoon tea - and parents will understand that ye shall never wake a toddler from her/his nap. So the following week, we visited the place on Saturday afternoon. It … Continue reading Pink Strawberry Cake at Bibelot

Phillip Island: The Nobbies

This post is going to be a short one. Before we head home, we thought we'd visit the Nobbies. This area offers amazing coastal view from the boardwalks and look out points. There are penguins burrows on the hills and we were lucky to have spotted one! We decided not to take our stroller. You could … Continue reading Phillip Island: The Nobbies

Soon after our caffeine hit,  we were undecided between … Continue reading Phillip Island: Day 2 – Koala Conservation Centre

Phillip Island: Day 1 – Penguin Parade

When it comes to Penguin Parade at Phillip Island Nature Park, the question we asked ourselves is whether to choose the General Viewing, Penguin Plus or Underground Viewing. We ended up getting the General Viewing tickets at $25.10/adult. Little Miss' entrance was free. I've never been to Penguin Plus or Underground Viewing so I can't … Continue reading Phillip Island: Day 1 – Penguin Parade

Phillip Island: Day 1 – Arrival

If you have noticed, our trips are mostly from last year (2016). When I realised that I have accumulated photos from our trips last year, it made me think that I should start blogging and posting them. Apart from that, I also thought that I could help other families by sharing our budget and things we … Continue reading Phillip Island: Day 1 – Arrival

Macedon Forest Glade Garden

It's officially Autumn and one place to visit during this season is the Macedon Ranges. Around the same time last year we visited Mount Macedon. We didn't actually go to Hanging Rock because Little Miss was still too young to go up and we weren't able to carry her up - she was already quite heavy. … Continue reading Macedon Forest Glade Garden
