Melbourne Day 4: Steam

Off to the Dandenong Ranges!

Puffing Billy Railway, a narrow gauge railway built in the 1900s originally intended to facilitate transportation in the wooded ranges. It's now mainly run by enthusiastic volunteers, something that would never happen in Singapore.

There wasn't much of a view along the way...

Next we headed to Cuckoo restaurant which is a buffet with a mindboggling variety of food and especially cakes.

Not to mention, live performances.

They have alot of cuckoo clocks, big and small over there.

Back to the city for some shopping, went to Myers (Queen's Birthday clearance sale) and got some CK jeans on offer, and JayJays for cute slogan tees. And to Safeway for wine, cheese and chocolates to buy back home.

It's a public holiday and every shop closes extra early. Including fast food outlets, which meant that looking for dinner proved to be a challenge.

There's this Chinese eatery that sells claypot rice and hotplate noodles, and the standard, like for most of food in Melbourne, was good.
