Melbourne! ...for the second time this year. 

I don't know what's going on, but it seems like everybody's moving to the Windy-Sunny-Rainy-Hailing-Storming city and I can see why. I had such a great time catching up with my best mates and old ones, whilst the sun actually came out to play with us (how very un-Melbourne-like). 

Essentially Sydney and Melbs are not all that different, but I must admit Melbournians have upped their entire/attire game, and don't mind lining up for a good feast. We decided to follow suit for brunch at Top Paddock but avoid the queue for a seat inside, and bask in the sun instead. The food did get cold quickly but was glorious nonetheless. If you're heading in for lunch I would suggest the eggs benny with a generous serving of pulled pork. For a salty hit try the white anchovies and jamón serrano (dry-cured Spanish ham)...and of course you cannot go past the blueberry and ricotta hotcake with berries, organic maple, seeds and double cream! Be prepared for a massive legit cake come out (sharing necessary)...topped with that thick luxurious cream, and those juicy assorted berries! Ah bring me back. 

As you can see I rugged up for the chilly weather with my new coat from H&M (coming to Sydney soon), which was on sale too. Afterwards we took a short stroll to Chapel Street and started our shopping adventures for another day.
