Experiencing Melbourne CBD

This morning, we went into the central business district of Melbourne. We will be experiencing the hustle and bustle of the centre of a 3 million population metropolitan. We took our reliable Falcon and this time, an attempt to weave through heavy morning Melbourne traffic, in a little bit of rain. Of course, its chilly. The weather is very much typical London weather that I and the missus so accustomed of to.

First, we stopped at Queen Victoria Market, again. We approached the Victoria Market from Flemington Rd. onto Peel St., the west side of the market. We found a 2 hour free parking zone and we waddled around the covered market in light drizzle.

Then, after getting more souvenirs, we pushed of to somewhere near Swanston St. We managed to find a parking, somewhere in between buildings.

When we got of the building above the parking, it was a Commonwealth Bank on Bourke St. The next block is the Melbourne General Post Office and Meyer and David Jones departmental stores. Across from that is the renown Melbourne Arcade.

There is a lot of nice things in the arcade. Mainly cafe, curious and specialty shops, embroderies, trinkets, jewelers etc. Its a great place to get presents for loved ones.

After waltzing along these nice shops, we exited the Arcade on Elizabeth St. Girl-Girl wanted a pair of ankle boots like her mom, so we stopped at a bargain shoe store.

By the time we had enough, the less than two hour parking a Wilson parking cost us AUD 29!

Right: The street were we do our daily grocery

Then we went to Macca Halal Meats on Racecourse Rd., to be some chicken. Its nearby where we stayed and my daughter has been having halal meats everynight for dinner. The Safeway mart nearby also sells Indonesian kicap manis and a lot other varieties, which include Maggi Mee.

Across from the Macca Halal Meats, there are Chinese restaurants, which serve Laksa and Chicken cooked in satay sauce as the menu.

When we got back, while waiting for her mother, Girl-Girl wanted to prepare the meal so I assisted her in making her favourite Chicken Katsu.

Not bad, for her first attempt!

It is a great thing with the advancement of ICT. Nowadays I can make posting anywhere, almost real time.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
