Day 2

Happy Australia Day!

We woke up early and headed to the Queen Victoria markets for breakfast. Unfortunately they were closed so we went to the South Melbourne Markets instead. After buying food for our BBQ celebrations, some of us went to do some serious shopping. I'm impressed at how much ground we covered. I didn't end up buying much seeing that my Japan trip was coming up. But I got 2 pairs of shoes for $30! I have Quyen's super sharp, bargain hunting eyes to thank for those. You are the awesomeness, babe!

Matt, Wine & Quyen put on a wonderful, belly-bulging BBQ of gourmet sausages, chilli marinated chicken wings, healthy but tasty kebabs, potato salad, garlic bread and veges - the asparagus were so juicy.

Those suss heads locked me out of the apartment ("Oh..err..the key doesn't work, I'll get the other one" - good one M!) and surprised me with a birthday cake. Q - it really meant a lot to me and made my trip even more sweeter. Thanks so much guys!

After we watched the fireworks from their balcony we headed to Crown Casino so the boys could hit the poker tables.

I also bumped into Derek and Germaine from high school at Crown. Hey guys, nice seeing you again. 6 degrees of separation (or less!) hey. Such a small, small world. Then it was time to stumble home, shower and sleep.
