Waking up early in the morning just to drive down from Brissy to Byron Bay kind of makes you go all woozy if you haven't had your cup of coffee let's say, or haven't had that pancake for breakfast. There was a slight delay in going up the summit though, why? The gate was closed!! So, there was traffic around the end of the road, right before the gates area to go in. We could see people getting dropped off and doing a U-turn because the parking was full up there already. I do have to say they really need extra parking because it's hideous. Only a few cars can fit and how many people come down every morning? Of course there were joggers and runners around too that would jog up or walk up the hill to get to the summit area.

Another revisit to Wara Wara on a fine but chilly day, coming in at mid afternoon means that restaurants would not be full but quiet. We entered Wara Wara and its design and interior is still the same regardless of the fact that their nearest competitor has just expanded their restaurant in which both were Korean restaurants but Wara Wara has more of a fusion of Japanese within some of its dishes. We sat in one of the booths and looked through the menu. One downside I have to add about Wara Wara is that they don't have any Korean BBQ, although we initially wanted Korean BBQ but as soon as we realised there weren't any, we thought we might just order what's available instead of changing restaurants.

Now, for your Melbourners, you don't have to worry about this and you guys would probably already know what I'm going to write about. But for those who has never been to Melbourne or Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne, then you are missing out big time mates.. Of course, Queen Victoria Markets is filled with goodness, from fresh fruit and veges to fresh baked pastries or deli cheeses and cured meats, even handmade goods or your fresh fishes, you can find it all here, all under one roof. It doesn't open everyday but when it does, it will be good if you could come before lunchtime because it does get packed quite easily. It's always nice walking through the markets on a chilly day in Melbourne. Now, this little ball of goodness above is a Queen Victoria Market visit must-have, oh this is a definite fix you must entice yourself upon whenever you go to Queen Vic, don't ask why, just do it and after you have taken a bite, I'm pretty sure you will fall in love with it as much as I did.

Of course, for those who knows Melbourne and its home to all of the interesting food and European style laneways, you will not be surprised by the amount of Best Breakfast in town that was listed. Of course, don't forget the Melbourne coffees.. I definitely know that Brisbane has topped up their game in the food industry and have presented us with various openings of new creative and unique food culture. Brisbane or Sydney or Melbourne, they all have their food culture, in their own uniqueness and dashing way.

As we were in Melbourne for a few days, we thought we would visit the Great Ocean Road where the 12 Apostles lie. Along the way, we stopped by at Apollo Bay Hotel for a quick lunch before heading off to see the 12 Apostles. Apollo Bay Hotel is a humble hotel located in Apollo Bay, situated with a magnificent views of the ocean and mountains, a popular tourist hotel when wanting to stay over while taking a trip down to the 12 Apostles.

It was about 9.30 pm in chilly Melbourne when we decided to have dinner. As I had a few places I had wanted to go for dinner, we made our way to the restaurant. We wanted a nice warm chinese meal at the time so we didn't particularly noticed the Italian or Korean etc etc restaurants as we passed by it. Unfortunately, the restaurant I had wanted to go to was closed and so, having to walk back again, I decided to try the next one on my list, and again, it seemed to have closed earlier than what I thought it would normally be. I wasn't being judgemental or anything, but since it is in the CBD, plus near Chinatown, and may I have to remind you that it is a Chinese restaurant may it be a Dumplings restaurant or just a noodle soup but no, I did not expect it to close at around this time.
And so, our journey ended us with grumbling tummies, trying to look for a Chinese restaurant in the heart of Little Bourke St area and some were quite filled but the menu didn't interest us. We came across 'Spicy Fish' a restaurant located on the GF of Target Centre, a restaurant that didn't look as much as appealing but what the heck, we gave it a shot.. So that's how we ended up here, in 'Spicy Fish', whilst being tired of walking around at night trying to find a casual delicious Chinese restaurant.
