I left the hotel room at 1:45pm today omg hahaha Worse than yesterday! Sheesh. And people say three hours doesn’t make a difference. It’s screwing with my body clock big time!
I decided to have brunch (at 2pm hahaha) at Buddabah, this small cafe on Collins Street. They had a sign saying “breakfast until 2pm” and it was 1:55pm. So I had to ask if they were still doing breakfast, as some places would just go “nah, it’s 2pm, sorry”. But she said “yep, you have five minutes”. YES! Hahaha I get excited by the smallest of things 😊
And for the remainder of the afternoon, I decided to check out our old hood, Docklands. The main shopping mall in the area seems to have expanded a bit more, but the restaurant strip by the water still remains quite empty. I asked one of the shop assistants if the mall is busy these days, and she said on weekends it’s chockers, but during the week, it’s a bit up and down. We seem to be ahead of the crowds. Alexandria in Sydney started picking up in the few years since we moved out from the area, and now the place is buzzing. I suspect Docklands will be the same too. We just have this knack of picking the hip areas well ahead of everyone 😂
I did a bit of trading in the early evening before heading over to South Melbourne for a late dinner with a few good friends over at their place. They ordered Greek food from UberEats! Awesome 👍 I always try and grab some Greek food whenever we’re in town. There’s a large Greek population down in Melbourne, so you get some pretty decent Greek food down here. Plus Masterchef Australia’s George Calombaris lives here 😆
Our friends have a German shepherd cross, and their dog is HUGE. And he’s only 15 months old! Plus he has a good bark on him. Freaks me out, man, but really he’s just a big baby hehehe But still, when a German shepherd is playing with you, he may just be mucking around, but who knows if he’ll change his mind and decides that he no longer trusts you….! 😲
So despite a rather late start to my day, I still managed to do quite a fair bit today😊
