Prahran Market, Melbourne


If you are a regular visitor to my blog, by this time you have noticed that my blog header had been changed..Thanks to Biren for your guidance and my daughter who helped me to draw my blog's icon, a pack of yummy Nasi Lemak bungkus. I am very happy as i have my own copyright blog's icon now. Hope you like my blog's new look..


This is another market that i visited beside Queen Victoria market, Prahran Market is the oldest market of Melbourne. I took 20mins to walk along the Chapel Street (South Yarra) from the The Olsen hotel where i stayed to get to this market..

Oh I like that cute icon of yours. Your daughter did a great job. I wish we have market like this in Malaysia. When I go back to US, I will definitely visit the farmers market in California. I think I can go to a different one everyday.
