Queen Victoria Market + Winter night market

Every morning, my friends and i would make coffee runs. Melbourne is known for it's coffee. It would be a real waste if we didn't drink at least one cup everyday. I'm not a huge coffee fan.. But working at a coffee house previously has taught me to appreciate the taste. I absolutely love the coffee beans that Melbourne uses. Not too acidic, which i honestly dislike.

There happens to be a coffee place near Yarraville where we were staying at. So we walked over every morning to have a cup & would sometimes head back to the apartment after getting our take away coffees to cook our own breakfast! The fresh produce here is sooo much cheaper than SG it's insane! Wish i would stay in Melbourne for several years. Cooking in would be so awesome & saves me so much money! We bought 8 Jumbo homemade sausages for & $10. Tt's really cheap! Can never find such prices in SG.

We visited Queen Victoria Market as it is one of the most touristy places in Melbourne! It's kind of like a huge flea market. Lots of handy crafts, vintage items, food etc. I scored a vintage luggage bag for $20!! How awesome! The vintage lugagge i purchased would have easily cost over 150SGD. At the market i got it for $20! & a rotary phone for $5!!! Well it ain't working but i've always wanted a display piece. So for $5 it's pretty darn cheap! I can gurantee you that you can NEVER find one of that price in SG. I've been searching for years but it's usually priced at 80SGD & above. Most of em aren't even working anyway.

This is the vintage luggage i bought for $20!
