Full post: Melbourne

Hello guys! I'm truly sorry it took me so long just to update.Finally done with the editing and choosing the photos. Most of my time was taken up due to my indecisiveness. heh. Anyways,  I just touched down 2 days ago from my 10 days 9 night trip to Melbourne with a bunch of friends.To be honest I was jet-lagged and exhausted. I had a blast there, and it was definitely a remarkable trip.Our mode of transport throughout the trip was actually walking due to the expensive tram fares (ps we chose not to jump trams.) I had successfully broken my longest walking record in my life. In desperate need of an authentic Thai foot massage after walking 20km on one of those days! We constantly stroll  along the 90 degree incline streets and indeed, our calf muscles had totally worn out. My friends who are currently studying at Melbourne brought me around the city. They have opened up my sight to a whole new world. 

Shall let the picture do all the talking. (:
Flinders street station
 Federation Square. A place which is filled with live performances.
