Breakfast Thieves, Rose Street Artists’ Market, Pho Bo Ga Mekong Vietnam & Yarra River + Gas Brigades Fire Show | Melbourne, Australia

And in continuation of the chill day we had the day before, we woke up to another brunch and more lazy walks at Fitzroy (again) and Yarra River in the evening.

Breakfast Thieves

2 July 2016: Breakfast Thieves | Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia It was a Saturday when we popped by Breakfast Thieves for brunch that morning and, we are entirely not surprised to see a crowd at the award-winning brunch cafe. 

We managed to secure the last seats outside along the pavement and, I went right for Mr Benedict that was only available on the weekends and holidays then got all addicted to the braised pork jowl and kale chips! And I was still getting used to coffee-ing since I was never into a coffee-drinking until this trip to Melbourne and swapped for hot chocolate instead that morning.

The Rose Street Artists’ Market

2 July 2016: The Rose Street Artists' Market | Fitzroy, Melbourne, AustraliaI am a sucker for unique handmade anything and weekend flea markets are always my favourite place to go because I know there will be something I will love to get my hands on. And it was no exception at The Rose Street Artists’ Market with so many stalls and sellers both indoors and outdoors where I (almost) break the bank over some accessories, trinkets and apparels for the kids at home!

Pho Bo Ga Mekong Vietnam

2 July 2016: Pho Bo Ga Mekong Vietnam | Melbourne CBD, AustraliaIt was like I confirmed I am Asian every time I start asking for rice, noodles or soup after a couple of meals and we satisfied the craving with a piping hot bowl of pho at Pho Bo Ga Mekong Vietnam in the CBD for dinner. Frankly speaking, I forgot what I had other than the fact that it was so shiok!

San Churro QV
2 July 2016: San Churro QV | Melbourne CBD, AustraliaWe decided to grab some churros from San Churros QV across the road after dinner and the underwhelming coffee and donuts earlier the same afternoon. Thank goodness it didn’t disappoint!

I can totally get used to a chill life like this!
