I don’t really have the energy much for posting at the moment. Just like everyone else in Melbourne right now I’ve been sick with the flu this week.

My Mum came to visit over the weekend and some jerk was nice enough to cough on her the first day she was here and so she was too sick to go out for almost the whole rest of her trip. We only got to go out twice the whole time she was here and that kind of sucked because it was her first time visiting Melbourne.

I took these from the top of the Myer overpass.

And the other direction. For some reason I really like all the trees they have in the middle of the roads here.

One of the places we managed to go to was Easy Way Tea. My favorite bubble tea place ever! EasyWay have a bunch of franchises in Brisbane and I was sad to see there weren’t any in Melbourne…

Luckily the first week we were here they read my mind and opened a store here!

My favorite there is the Blueberry Milk tea with pearls. Super sweet and super yummy. This time I tried out the new Ooolong milk tea and it was really good too, it was sweet but still tasted distinctly oolong…ish?

Verdict: Still my favorite bubble tea place!

Speaking of favorites, this is my favorite alley in the city at the moment, the architecture is absolutely beautiful. You can’t see half the details of it but it’s stunning. I want to go back and take lots of photos.

This week in James’ baking adventures he re-lived his American childhood and baked a pumpkin pie. We don’t have pumpkin pie here in Aus… because… well… it’s quite possibly the most icky thing I can think of! Not that I don’t like pumpkins, they are one of my favorite foods … but the idea of having them as a sweet desert pie just turns me right off! *_*

James was very happy with the way it turned out, I tried a piece but I still think it’s not for me! I just can’t get my head around pumpkin being a desert >_< James gets to eat pretty much the whole thing himself now so I don’t think he cares!

Lastly I leave you with a photo of a bunch of bunnies (still a novelty for me) that I saw in a pet store, funny though there seems to be a very strange looking one hiding up the back! Damn crafty guinea pigs sneaking in with the bunnies!
