Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4 and Day 5

Anyway, after a few days of exploring outside of the city centre with a tour company, we finally had the last two days for ourselves to explore Melbourne city by foot.

Of course, first thing first, we had to grab brunch at one of their cafes. 

And because we had our proposal nearby, we thought it would make perfect sense to create more memories here. 
I mean, with such stunning setting and surrounding, it was hard to resist dining here. 

And this incredible cafe I was talking about is Arbory Bar and Eatery!

Tucked away under the bridge, next to the Flinders Street Station, this serene place is an interesting juxtaposition to the crowded Flinders Street Station! 

As it was a chilly morning, it was really quiet at the restaurant. 
There was only one table occupied. To keep ourselves warm, we sat next to them to share the heater. 

A cup of hot Chai Latte is a must every morning! 

This place is truly an escape from the city in the city as it's very tranquil and peaceful. 
The picture perfect view looked like it's straight out of a painting. 
The constant breeze, the friendly staffs, the incredible metropolitan view and a cup of warm drink in our hands, we would honestly stay there for hours and hours if we have all the time in the world. 

These two brunch dishes were beyond amazing! 

This place absolutely comes alive at night, with an incredible bar serving a great variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages! 

After our lovely brunch, we decided to walk around the city centre and explore more places. 

We headed to St. Paul's Cathedral and spent quite a long time there before hopping on a train to grab Greek food for lunch! 

As the food was takeaways, I didn't take any photos of it. 
But trust me, the food was amazing. 
Although it's not completely healthy, chugging down a big roll of fatty lamb/pork wrap was oddly satisfying in the cold. Haha! 
The portion was also really generous! 

Right after our lunch, we made our way to a nearby Outlet mall to have a quick shopping. 
DFO Essendon was not the biggest outlet mall in Melbourne, so the options were rather limited. 
You could still grab some good deals from their native brands like Cotton On, Oroton, Fossil and some sportswear from Lorna Jane and Lulu Lemon

We then headed back to Aunt Pat's house to chill before our sumptuous homecooked family dinner! 

It was particularly cold that night, so we did the usual thing, hopped into a nearby convenience store to grab milk and almond milk for the next day before calling it a day!
