Rendezvous in Melbourne

King Kong, French crepes, a new leather jacket  & my love. What more could a girl want in a weekend away?

My boyfriend, D, is an intern at an investment bank this summer. The perfect excuse for a weekend in Melbourne, no?


The highlights (apart from seeing him)

  • Getting dressed up for the spectacle of King Kong at the gorgeous Regent Theatre
  • French crepes in Fitzroy at BreizozI’ll be back for the pear poached in vanilla sauce & wine, drizzled with chocolate ganache
  • A new leather jacket – Melbourne was unexpectedly cold
  • Mag Nation – A shop devoted to magazines. Picked up an Elle UK – I’m sad to say, I prefer to its new Australian counterpart
  • The fluffiest cupcakes in the world at Cupcakes by Paolo on Collins
  • Devilishly indulgent Portugese tapas & sweet Pedro X sherry at Bar Lourinha
  • A new skirt from Kookai
  • Happy nails thanks to Chelsea from Trophy Wife Nail Art in Richmond
  • Watching D’s face light up when we stumbled upon Double Monk on Smith Street
  • Books for Cooks on Gertrude Street. Paradise for a cookbook lover like me
  • Mouthwatering antipasto at Tazio
  • Clubbing in Prahan
  • Finally getting a table at Chin Chin, the most delicious of Asian restaurants
  • Strolling through Southbank

Details of the above and more thoughts on the magic of Melbourne soon. Today I have a 21st to prepare for.
