News from Down Under

I miss blogging 😦 and that is why I’m back here again after like…3 months? Ok just say it, I’m a horrible blogger.

Anyway, another reason I’m here again is because I wanna share the awesomeness Melbourne with all of you =) Not you…‘already-in-melbourne people’ =P

Here’s some photos just for starters…

Theme : Streets of Melbourne


large giant chess set


dragon made of palm leaves, can you believe it?


gorgeous paintings created with mere spray cans and newspaper cuttings.

Guess how long the artist took to create one painting? Approximately half an hour!


Naked Jesus and Virgin Mary.

Drawn by a street artist who seems to have penchant for nude drawings.

The other day he was drawing another naked person.

What can I say? Sex Sells huh?


These pictures are only part of Melbourne’s vibrant streets, I haven’t took picutres of..

  • The 70-year-old japanese dude who hula-hoops on stilts for hours. Did I mention he’s dressed as a flower? You’ll see 🙂
  • The dude wearing a spaceman suit while playing weird techno music. According to roomie Edwina, he cusses at people who don’t give him money. Oh wait, actually we’re not sure if he’s a dude coz we can’t see his/her face underneath that suit.
  • Awesome buskers who sing awesome songs that make us smile.
  • The three mexican men wearing ponchos at Victoria Market.

and thank you for all those sweet messages in my previous “Farewell Comtemplation” post =) I really really appreciate it!
