Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show 2009

The Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show was held at Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens on 1 Apr 09 ~ 5 Apr 09. Me, hubby, Chai Hoong and Harry visited the show on Saturday. I am not really a fan of flower or gardening but since I had never been to the show previously and out of my curiosity, I decided to pay a visit. There was not just the flowers exhibition but there were also a lot of booths selling gardening stuffs.

Before we went to the show, we had our lunch at the food court at “Australia on Collins”. I used to walk by this place quite a few times and saw there’s few foods stall that selling delicious food. Hence, I decided to give it a try today. Tortilla wrap is the most common wrapper that I will buy from the supermarket. There are 2 stalls selling wrapper. Me and Chai Hoong had the chicken wrapper while hubby and Harry had rice. Anyway, here are some photos to share with… = )
