out and about

in and around town

Aren’t uni breaks the best? One thing I’ll definitely miss about student life are the ridiculously long holidays, the kind where the days eventually blend together. The past few weeks for me have been pretty much a blur, mainly spent eating, sleeping… and forgetting I have a blog, apparently! To be honest though, lately I’ve been more concerned about catching up with people I never get to see anymore. The other day my friend and I ventured into the city to do just that, by catching a movie and eating food. Lots of it, might I add…

      

I had time to kill before lunch so I walked around QVB and started snapping, as you do. It’s been awhile since I last explored the top floor, but it’s just as photogenic as ever! It also doesn’t hurt that the free wifi happens to be the best up there. Just saying…

Bowls of deliciousness from O-San Ramen. I won’t go into too much detail, but my friend had the creamy tonkotsu ramen and said it definitely lived up to its name. Since I’m a total fiend for garlic (watch out vampires), black garlic tonkotsu was the obvious choice for me. Considering we both struggled to finish the sheer amount of noodles, I’d say it was pretty good value. Needless to say I’ll definitely be visiting again soon!

      

Chinatown alleyways and obligatory ice cream photos at Aqua S. I just had to try the Milo soft serve before it disappeared, and I wasn’t let down! This flavour’s exactly what it sounds like, and pretty much sums up my childhood in a cone. Although, I still think it’d be that tiny bit better if it was slightly crunchy, just like the Milo powder I used to devour as a kid…

A bunch of stuff in my pockets including tickets to the movie we saw, Inside Out. From the trailer alone I thought it’d be super cheesy and contrived, but thankfully I was proven wrong! The story even had me tearing up towards the end and I never cry during movies, not even The Notebook. Does that make me abnormal?

      

Okay so this wasn’t in the same day, but I finally got to see Les Misรฉrables last week. I remember being totally bitter when the show hit Melbourne first, but it was definitely worth the wait! There’s just something magical about seeing the songs you know and love being performed live. Plus, no matter how many times I visit Capitol Theatre the grandeur of the place always blows me away. My friends and I got a bit carried away taking photos in there, but hey! It’s not everyday you get a chance to visit the theatre.
