Melbourne with the Kohs, the Lees and the Ngs!
The last time Xiaohan, Monica (aka 冷玩妹) went on a trip together was in 2003! So it was a great chance for us to go to Melbourne together to watch Coldplay! It’s always nice to go on a holiday with good friends. The last time when we went on a trip, Ashley (Xiaohan’s daughter) wasn’t even born yet! This time, we had a great relaxed get away in Melbourne.
We stayed in a nice swanky Air BnB apartment just opposite of the Crown Casino where I performed 2 years ago with Wakin. This is the 2nd time I’m in Melbourne and I think after this trip, we roughly managed to comb through all the touristy places one needs to go when in Melbourne =D.
During this trip, I managed to hang with Sanjeev of Empra, who’s based in Melbourne and he brought me to all the nice music spots and chill by the famous St Kilda beach area.
My favourite shopping places are J.B Hifi, which sells lots of music where Sanjeev recommended me lots of cool Aussie acts to check out and Book Grocer where they have great deals on books in particularly music books all year!
I think what’s nice this time is that Melbourne now has a tram free zone meaning tram rides are free within the city. Which is great as Crown Casino is just at the edge of the city.
I’ll be back in May with Wakin for our Australia tour.
And of course, on to the main reason why we went to Melbourne….
