Today’s the last day of the year 2012 and here’s a shot of last brekkie I had for this year. It was home-brewed coffee with chocolate scone and croissant. Simple yet fulfilling.
Just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2013. Hope good things are happening to all of you.

Just to drop by to let you know that I’m still here and will keep posting more photos soon. I’ve just started a new job and it’s now taking most of my free time.
Anyhow, Spring seems to be on its way to Melbourne as you can see from the photo below. Well, that only means one thing I suppose – more naturey photos!

Over the last weekend I finally got to meet up with Oy, the talented and creative photographer behind this blog. She turned out to be a Nikon shooter as well, and it was simply pleasant to chat with someone who enjoys the same things as I do. Oy loves to photograph still life, cafes, food as well as weddings. We had brekkie at this little gem, Manchester Press. They are famous for their latte art and their specialty in Bagels. The first photo is the photo of the street that I pass by everyday on the way to the station. It was such a beautiful winter morning that day.
Most of the cafe photos were actually taken by Oy, so credit goes to her. Also, I’m in one of the photos above see if you can spot me. And after that, we decided to walk around the small lanes to capture some street photography. Here are some of my favorite shots of that day. Note that this is Degraves Street or Centre Place, undoubtedly the most famous lane in Melbourne. It is always crowded with people, be that tourists or locals roaming around for good cafes and food.

It’s been a while since the last time I indulged myself with a fine dining experience. When I first read the article in Broadsheet about the newly opened Moon Under Water, especially when I was going through the photos of the restaurant I instantly knew that I had to visit this place immediately and so I did, along with my usual dining companions. This time we decided to do lunch, instead of dinner because I noticed from the photos that this place has such gorgeous lighting from the window. What I love about this place was the all-white decorations, in addition to their top-notch service and food of course.
Moon Under Water only serves 4-course set menu, no À la carte. The interesting thing is, their menu changes frequently according to the market produce and the availability. I won’t bore you with more words, here’s the list of the menu during the week I visited this place.
1. Winter vegetable salad
2. Black rice, red mullet and cuttlefish
3. Aged pheasant, boudin noir, apple
4. Burnt butter hazelnut sponge & chocolate ice cream
I think this place could also be the perfect venue for a small wedding reception. Everyone should try to visit this restaurant, while it’s still fairly new and easy to book.
