Melbourne Dreamin' (Part 1)

Finally have got some of the pix organized... here's the journal of our Melbourne Dreamin' trip... ;)

Day 1 - 4th August, Friday, 5pm, we arrived at Singapore Changi Airport, checking in... we chose MAS because the tix were S$200 cheaper than Qantas/BA per person... that's a whopping S$400 we saved...though a little hassle of transitting in KL...but we are on holiday and have all the time in the world...kekeke

Day 2 - 5th August, Saturday, 8am, Arrived at Melbourne airport...went to Budget to hunt for a car to rent... we recommend you to try Budget, cos their rates are one of the most reasonable...got ourselves a nice 1.3L Hyundai Getz Coupe... at A$600 (with insurance) for 8 days...

Our adventure has just begun...Melbourne's street directory - Melway... even with the step-by-step instructions we've downloaded from the internet directing us from the airport to Elaine's place + the street directory... we were still confused and needed directions... hiaks!~ Thank goodness for a kind soul who directed us from the airport to the Highway...

We needed directions again when we reached the city... travelled along Victoria Street and we were in a complete BLUR...need to stop by the roadside to ask for direction again...it's 9+ in the morning, fortunately the owner of the Tavern (pub/hotel/restaurant) was kind enough to give my darling a detailed explanation of how we should travel to hit the Eastern Highway in order to reach Elaine's place at Doncaster...

To be continued...
