Day trip to Mount Dandenong

Labour Day fall on 8 Mar 10 which was on Monday. This means that we had 3 days long weekend! Yay! Everyone lovez holidays, right? So do I.

We were tagged along by Chai Hoong and Harry for a day trip to Mount Dandenong.

Breakfast at McDonalds on the half way through our first destination.

Ham and Cheese Toast + coffee
Mango cheesecake + hot chocolate

Almond and orange cake + Cappuccino

Welcome to Mount Dandenong! Finally we'd arrived.

Breathtaking scenery

Continued our journey to SkyHigh Mount Dandenong...

Bad hair day! It was so windy.

The next stop is Grants Picnic Ground. We passed by a street that have a few shops along the road side. One of the shops had caught Chai Hoong’s attention which is a crystal shop. Hence we decided to wander around the street.

There were few shops like:

Craf shop

Antique shop

Toy's shop

A picture with this little thing. Haha, isn’t it cute?

Okay… continued with our journey. We kinda got lost in this mount as we couldn’t find the location of Grants Picnic Ground.

Luck was with us, we managed to find the location after a while.

Here we were! We can’t wait to see the Australian Native Birds. You are able to hand-feed these colourful Australian parrots.

They are so beautiful…

We were feeding the parrots!!! I was scared they will bite my hand. I kept asking hubby to quickly snap photo for me while the parrot was being feed from my palm. Hehe

We didn’t stay long there as we were starving already, it was over the lunch time! =D

Off we went to Knox City to have our late lunch at Hogs Breath Café.
