not sure if i shld be even posting this thread but ever since i spent 2 mths (close to 2 mths) in melb for my poly attachment i didnt want to leave at all.
in fact in the last weeks i was getting increasingly moody and short fused.
when i came back i was so sad, normally when i am packing up to go home from a holiday i feel excited to go home but not in the case of melb.
i dunno waht i like abt melb but i can safely say i dont miss sg at all. somehow the food in sg didnt attract me anymore. even though sg is my birthplace, i simply love the life in melb i had..
i yearn so much for a trip to melb...and somewhat jealous or envious of others who are going to melb/aust..

I love melbourne also... Will probably retire there if i have enough money..
Nice weather (erratic at times) and nice food (great italian food at lygon Street, Greek cakes and pastries at St Kilda, Beef noodle at Swanston Street, Viet food at Springvale).. Yummy!!
Great entertainment such as the as large as T2 - Crown Casino. Lots of excitement.

I had been back from Victoria (Australia) for more than a year already but i still miss the place. Stayed for nearly 2 years in a nice seaside town, one hour drive away from Melbourne. Very very nice place. was so upset to leave.

Ah, Melbourne... the town I grew up in - my home town you could call it. Having been away for a while, I certainly do miss it.
Things I miss... the cosmopolitan atmosphere, the fantastic food (with such a great variety), the parks and gardens, the sporting spectacles, the "four seasons in one day" !

1hr away from Melb..

Agreed (saving money for trip) ... better to go there with a P&S than to stay at home with a DSLR.
Ah, Melbourne ... lazy summers walking down St Kilda beach, the panic attack that comes the first time you mistakenly stop with all 4 wheels of your car on wet tram tracks, the unmarked police cruisers parked by the side of the neighbourhood roads with speed cameras, the thrill of driving down the scenic Great Ocean Road, watching the highway while your passengers ooh and aah at the sights, the hoons in their sin-bins making a racket on country roads at night, the weird feeling of doing a hook turn, the yummy porridge at Supper Inn at 4am after a night out on Chapel St, lime spiders on Lygon St ...
