Shopping and Food, Melbourne Australia


Here were few shopping places that i went during my visit to Melbourne recently. Thanks to Helena for such good recommendation. I especially love to visit Royal Arcade and The Block Arcade, they have a lot of little speciality shops, fashion stores, cafe and etc.

Sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce (I saw Terri highly recommended this dessert) .
We feel the butterscotch sauce was a bit too sweet, but overall this is a nice pudding..

Hooked seafood ( nothing to shout about their fish fillets but salad and pesto sauce were very yummy and refreshing!)

Sonia, you know what, I have just made some sticky date puddings 2 days ago n there were just absolutely delicious (haha... sendiri oloh!!). This pudding is a famous dessert amongst western society however its not really popular in Asia. I like to eat this dessert with cream so that it balance out the sweetness.

I went to that Haigh's chocolate shop 3x wanted to get something nice for my friend but at the end I change to Lindt chocolate instead haha! My husband scolded me very imchim! haha!

I got a few nice things from the arcades but can't afford to buy all. :)
