Then you go up these stairs to the upper level to my bedroom and bathroom.
I also made my way to Mekong on Swanson Street. Every time I go to Melbourne I come here, it's famous for its Vietnamese cuisine. The store proudly displays photos around the walls of all the Chinese celebrities who have visited. The food is ok....but I prefer Pho An in Bankstown (Sydney) any day!
If you look hard enough you can find some very cheap eats in Melbourne! (The locals will usually tell you). For lunch I found a little Indian retaurant that served a variety of curry from Northern India. Below is a big plate of vegetable curry with tomato rice and salad for $3.50...yes $3.50!
Other times I would just order room service. All the room service Meals were prepared by the hotel restaurant The Treasury, and delivered by the best looking guys!! I'm talking about tall model types....and there I was in my daggy tracksuit - hawt!

The hotel also did an amazing buffet breakfast every morning, (no piccies because the hotel people would think I was weird). Instead of honey out of a jar, they had fresh honey comb that dripped honey onto a plate for people to put onto their yogurt and toast - it was just amazing.
I guess despite having such a great time, I really started to miss friends, family and most of all Jacky. You can be at the nicest places but at the end of the day, it is never that great when you don't have someone to share the experience with. Career wise it's been such a long road to get to where I am, and I'm so grateful...
Next work trip - Wollongong!
