Trips to Melbourne City Part I

 Hey there Lovelies 
School has started ;A; -sad-
I don't like forcing myself out of bed and trying to get ready for it.
Is it just Australia that everyone has to go to school at 9am? or is it the same?
Well all the lovelies that have started or starting school soon, good luck and continue smiling! C:
Anyways today I will be introducing one of the main areas of Melbourne, which is obviously The City of Melbourne hehe.
A few weeks ago I had some Korean tourists come along and asked us
 to be their tour guides -yay-
after such a long time, I was able to see the famous places within the city.

First I would like to introduce Melbourne Central, MC for short.
It is practically the shopping mall and the centre of the city called the CBD (central business district) and has various shops, food  courts etc

This is the very middle of Melbourne Central; this watch called the Marionette Fob Watch opens up from the bottom and plays a tune every hour which many people come to wait and see.

This is the other side from the clock which is the Coop's Shot Tower which was built in 1888, which still remains strong within the centre and the shopping centre was built around this prison in order to preserve history. The time I went to the city was around Christmas time, so there you have it; a beautiful man-made tree ^^

The roof right above the Coop's Shot Tower is a glass covering called the 'Glass Cone,' which from the outside of the building looks like a giant dome.

While walking about I found a little store library which I had never seen before..
Have I really not been here for that long? ._.

After a long walk, we decided to stop and replenish ourselves with a refreshing drink. It was a nice hot, sunny day which was perfect for a fresh Frappe.


Eventually we came by Bourke Street, which is considered  as the main street filled with various clothing shops such as Myer, David Jones, H&M etc. Lots of buskers and various musicians and talented people all come out of their way in order to show case performances to all the people shopping.

We quickly headed towards Flinders Station, but on the way towards it, we stopped by The Royal Arcade. The famous Macarons Store called 'The Little Royal Macarons' is known by many people who watch Running man (
, a Korean variety show where one of the members, Song Ji Hyo (송지효) had tried the petite sweets.
The second picture is a famous cake store within the Royal Arcade that goes by the name 'Hopetoun Tea Rooms,' the cakes come in manifolds of tastes and as it is very famous, there is always a que in order for people to go in and have a bite.

This is the famous Flinders Station located within the CBD

Right across the station we have the Saint Paul's Cathedral

And right across the street from the Cathedral, we have the popular entertainment grounds, Federation Square. Depending on the various events, talented people organise shows in order to perform in front of everyone a few times a month.

Anyways part II shall be up very soon!
bye bye for now  lovelies!
