Anzac Hill

If you missed the rest of attraction in the town, just make sure that you dont miss the ANZAC HILL! For your information. ANZAC is the abbreviation of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, representing men and women who fought in the great wars. It's a memorial to all those who served in the defence of their country during the wars in which Australia has participated. 

When you reach the top of it, the view is worthwhile and spectacular.

Glen Waverly Chickilia

One of my favourite korean restaurant.. 
It's located at Glen Waverly. Just to let you know that Glen Waverly is part of my favourite place. Because the first day when I arrived in Melbourne, the first place that I visited? And Most of the time, I like going there for groceries. 



It's a very small restaurant and only fits for 15 people perhaps? 




Kimbap. 김밥


Spicy Fried Chicken Drumsticks and wings.  Loves! 


Dukbokki ! 떡볶이
Korean Spicy Rice Cakes.
Love how spicy it is.     



Chickilia 
259 Springvale Road, Glen Waverly   
Contact : 03-9887-7777
Close on Monday 
Opening Hours : 11am - 9pm Tuesday-Sunday 

Some hints to look for the restaurant =) 

It's located opposite to the centro and the car parking. 


Once you saw the Waverly Original Charcoal Chickens, 



Just beside the Chemist's back entrance. The other way is you enter through the front entrance of the korean grocery shop.  


P/s : FYI, they moved to the city and no longer at Glen Waverly anymore. I blogged about this restaurant and click here for the post. =)

Town of Alice Springs

It's pretty amusing when I told my friends that I'm going to Alice Springs for 5 days during my winter break.  They gave some thought that I'm going to one of the hot Springs in somewhere. XD

We are surprised that there is Kmart, Coles, Woolworth just like another suburb areas in Melbourne. 
We imagined that there shouldn't anything in the town of Alice Springs. As you know, Desert... Like rocks and sands.

P6270085

Even rubbish bin with aboriginal arts! 

P6270084

There is many galleries which showcased the local Aboriginal Arts and art centres dotted throughout the Town. If you tend to have a whole day free in the town, you can take a "hop on-hop off" town tour to explore the town's many attractions. We arrived there in the afternoon, hence, not much time to go for other things except walk around in the town. If you are interested to visit centres like Alice Springs Reptile Centre, School of the Air Visitor Centre, you gotta take a cab and the cost is affordable.
