The Last Brekkie of Year 2012

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.

Manchester Press

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.

Market Lane Coffee

I’ve heard many people raving about Market Lane Coffee for its quality brew and excellent service. Right after finishing my quick lunch, I headed off to Prahran to check this place out. Market Lane Coffee is actually situated in Prahran Market, and sadly the market was not open.

I love the wooden furniture at this gem. The window lighting was so good and the staff were really helpful and friendly. I was mostly impressed with their coffee. I had firstly a latte of their single origin Paraiso from Brazil and then I couldn’t resist having a second cup of their pour over Nyakizu, which originates from Rwanda. It tasted really floral and complex with a candy sweetness and notes of pineapple butterscotch and apricot.

I think I have found my favorite cafe to hang out, especially on weekdays where there’s not a lot of people. I swear I could just stay there for hours, reading books and relaxing. One sad thing about this place is that they don’t seem to do breakfast or meals.

Oh, guess which of these photos was taken with my iphone? =)
