Well at the beginning of December i had to pleasure of making a 3 day trip to Melbourne with my best friends, which would include my amazing Mandy.

I did a bit of shooting, but i generally spent my time sight seeing and not taking as many shots as i would like to...so my bad.
When i head to KL and (hopefully) Singapore in the new year, i really want to get some great shots! I do regret not taking many shots when i was in Melbourne!

So Moving on....the Architecture going on in Melbourne is simply amazing! I have one photo which shows how colourful their thinking is when designing something new there.
The rest of the photos are just general things. Thought id share them with you.

This Building (the one im talking about with the outstanding design) isnt even completed and looks amazing!

This is the view had courtesy Amanda's friend who allowed us to stay there for one of the nights. WHAT A VIEW!!!

And the below is the same view at night. I know its blurry, but i think it gives you an idea of the city lights when your right in the centre of it all.

Oh my goodness! It was amazing too see the amount of trams going around Melbourne...left right and centre. It was crazy but very impressive. You miss one tram...no joke, literally a couple of minutes later, another one which would be heading to the same destination would arrive. Impressive isnt it?...well i guess us Adelaidians get impressed by smallest of things.

Once again...there is some pretty sweet design going on here at the Melbourne Train Station! It looks more impressive when you see it in person. The photo again cannot justify how it looks like when your actually there.

So...This is the Eureka Tower (below). May not Look Big (But trust me it is...) but it does give some very amazing views of the city and outter skirts of the Central Melbourne.

The below photo was taken at the Eureka Skydeck! Oh My Gosh...the view (in person may i say) was astonishing! i was GOBSMACKED at how high we actually were. The Photo does not fully justify the amazing feeling you get while being some 88 stories high.

The photo above is me standing at the same spot where the last photo was taken. If it looks like im peacking it...then yes...u are very correct! i dont think ive been so scared in my entire life. I know it sounds sad of me to say so, but im sure you'd agree if you faced the same thing...where you can feel the building move because of its hight!...and then trying to stand right next to a window.
If that was scary...we had the opportunity to go on....The EDGE! Check this LINK OUT! It was AMAZING and scary at the same time! WOOOOOW
I didnt get any photos from my camera of The EDGE because we werent allowed to, so the link gives u great idea of what im talking about.

And this was the pretty view we got on the way back to Adelaide.

All in all... the trip was great. Met many people... ate lots of food and did a bit of shopping! Wasnt much, if at all cheaper in Melbourne hence why i say "a bit of shopping".
