Gateway to Hotel Windsor : Traditional Afternoon Tea

Apologies for the lack of update… but in the coming posts there will be a flood with lot of photos from when my mommy visited me a week ago. 

Finally mommy arrived in Melbourne on last Wednesday! She stayed in Melbourne for a week. Hence, last week I was fully occupied. I had planned a lot of activities for mommy.

I had chosen to go for afternoon tea at Hotel Windsor as I think this is the perfect way to catch up with mommy where we can enjoy the goodies while having a chat.

The afternoon tea started at 2.30pm. We arrived earlier so camwhoring is a must for us too!

The lobby of the hotel

The ladies room was very classic and comfy...

Alright, shall we start our afternoon tea? =)

It begins with a glass of sparkling wine

We were served with a three-tiered stand with sandwiches, French pastries, cakes and of course scones!

Okay, let me show you the closer look.

At the bottom layer: Sandwiches - Smoked salmon, Egg & mayonnaise, Virginia ham & Dijon mustard, Chicken, apple & mayonnaise and lastly Traditional cucumber with sour cream & chives.

Mommy loves the Smoked salmon sandwiches the most. While for me I like the egg and ham sandwiches.

In the middle layer we had some gorgeous pastries and cakes.

At the top layer were our favorites - the raisin & vanilla scones. It comes with double cream, strawberry and summer berry preserves.

Overall the food was beautiful and the staffs were friendly and helpful too! The staff even offered to snap some pictures for us. =) We spent a lovely afternoon chit chatting and accompanied by all those yummylicious food. What a good place to chill.

After the tea, I brought mommy wandering in the city.

More to come! So yeah, people stay tuned. =)

Seafood hunting @ Fish Seafood Grilled

We had a sudden craving for seafood and we found a review of a place where you can always get the freshest seafood, Fish Seafood Grill at Waterfront City.

A stylish, spacious and cosy restaurant.

They do have outdoor seat too.

They offer a wide variety of seafood and they all sound tempting to me! The menu is divided into a few categories such as Plates to Share, Seafood Platter, House Specialities, Desserts and etc. Well… we opted for Plates to Share.

Okay, let see what we’ve ordered for sharing.

Oysters – we ordered 6 Kilpatrick and 2 Bloody Mary.

 Fresh! Loved it to bits!


Heart the calamari, fresh and springy!

Love the cauliflower puree on top of the scallops, it was so smooth.

Like the way they cut and grilled it, taste really good!

Me and the crab! ^_^

Not satiated with the seafood, hubby ordered a bowl of chips! =D

Initially we planned to have dessert after the meal but with those extra chips in our tummy, there’s no room for dessert anymore. =(

Overall the foods were excellent! We will definitely come back to taste on others type of seafood as well as the dessert!

End the post with a picture that I took when we strolled around the waterfront after the fulfilling lunch . =D

Weeknight dinner @ Café Giraffe

Apologise for the lack of update recently. Anyway, I am back now…

I came across the City Magazine few weeks ago that recommended a cute café called Café Giraffe which is located at 302 Little Lonsdale Street.

The decoration of the café is so adorable; they have a lot of quirkily stuffs as the decoration and it is a very cosy café too!

Our waiting number "Bread"

Must do activity – camwhoring while waiting for the food!

Iced Chocolate

Chicken Curry Masala Wrap

Chicken Lasagna

Lastly, Crème Brûlée!

Love the atmosphere.
A little bit let down was the lack of food options but we were still happy with our orders.

I am so excited because I have good news to share!
That is… my mom is coming to visit me very soon!!! Yay!!! So excited and looking forward for her arrival.

Count down… 9 days to go!
