Happy belated New Year everyone..! I Just got back to Melbourne last week from holiday, and this blog already looks a bit ‘dusty’.. šŸ™‚

Holiday made my blogging mood a bit low, besides I didn’t do much cooking back home. Anyway, I’m back in Melbourne now, and just got my mojo back.. thanks to the trip to Royal Botanical Garden. (I promise, I will be back there for a picnic!).

Just some of the pictures taken with my hubby’s SLR camera (sooooo much better than my blurry phone cam and pocket cam)…. :

stop, and smell the flowers..

Love the pond ā¤


chocolate cake@ the terrace

Of course, after all the walking, we deserve a chocolate cake and some coffee.. šŸ™‚ we stopped at the terrace, tea room at the garden. The cake was okay, not as rich and chocolate-y as vegie bar’s, the cake was a bit on the dry side, but the amount of frosting had saved it. The coffee was good, but not great either, however, the prices are still on the normal range. But with the view to the garden, everything tasted better anyway. Well, looks like the botanical garden will be our new little ‘escape’ place for us.
