One day before, my sister already told us must get ready at 8am. But, you know la, we have a big group of people especially have so many kids…So, our progress slow abit…I think we delayed for 40mins ??? Is it ar? I also forgot already. After everyone get ready, our “Tour Guide(my sister)” will count 1,2,3,4,…14! Okie! Go! First of all, we walked to Downtown, 97 Franklin Street to pick up our vehicle!

Let’s take a picture first!
Me and my mummy!

Snap some photos during the way to Franklin Street.
Ming Ming! How come he looked so unhappy?
Is it because of his winter hat? He felt uncomfortable?
Around 9pm, we reached Hertz, a place to pick up the vehicle! If you want to find more information about car rental, click here.

Aiyo… How come need to wait so long!
After 5 mins….
Oh No, finally Xuan Xuan cannot stand and fall asleep Z_Z!
After waiting for around 30 mins! Finally we got our car! We rented one Toyota Tarago and one Toyota Estima. The rental was AUD105 per car per day. We rented for 5 days.
Our car no – 428! In cantonese, we pronouned 428 as “Sat Yee Fat”. Mean “Sure Easy Get Rich”! Lol.
The car was fully occupied by us as well as luggages & bag! We were fully utilized the car space!
We prepared everything and till 10 am, we only able to start our journey! Our first place to go is Melbourne’s famous Queen Victoria Market! It just 5 minutes drive from Hertz to the market.
The Queen Victoria Market (also known as the Queen Vic Markets or simply as the Queen Vic or “Vic Market”) is a major landmark in Melbourne, Australia, and at around seven hectares (17 acres) is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere. The Market is significant to Melbourne’s culture and heritage and has been listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. The Market is named after Queen Victoria who ruled the British Empire, from 1837 to 1901.
Bin Bin and Queen Victoria Market.
We only got 1 hour to shop around because we need to rush for another place. So, we directly went to fruit stalls to get some fruits.
My sister inlaw bought some apples. She said these apple called “Pink Lady”!
She also bought some grapes.
My sister bought some strawberries ~

Vegetables stall at Queen Victoria Market.
Due to lack of the time, we simply picked a restaurant to have our breakfast.
Pasta, spagetti, soup, meatball and etc…
What to order?
We ordered Bacon and Eggs on Toast with Hot Drinks (AUD9.50)
Set above come with hot chocalate.
We ordered sandwich too and some other breads..
We ordered Pizza too!
Do you know our breakfast total bills how much? We ate around AUD60 for our breakfast (4 adults, 3 kids). So expensive $_$ Anyway, we already know food in Australia is expensive. Just havent got used to it.
Actually Queen Victoria Market was very big but we did not have enough time to visit all. See, we took photos at the same place again =.=”’. I believe Queen Victoria Market sure has a better view for photo shooting.
While waiting for our “driver”. Picture time!
Me and hubby @ Queen Victoria Market.
Macadamia Nuts! How’s was the taste? Hehe, I not really like it because the taste weird weird one!
We were heading to next destination! Bye Bye Melbourne City!
