In the Fish Bowl

wheee! justin stayed over last night and i couldn't get up for class in time this morning (again) and we were starveedd so we decided to go down chapel to chapellis for breakfast.


my hot chocolate with marshmellows!

justin's boring flat white...

sigh. my boyfriend the nerd. he even has to read the Financial Review over brekkie.

WOOHOO! BREAKFAST! hash browns, sausage, toast, sunny side up eggs, bacon..mmm..

MY breakfast. haha so typical right, pancakes with icing sugar, maple syrup and ice cream..

wheee! what we had for brekkie. the big breakfast plate, my stack of pancakes and an additional short stack in case justin got hungry...which he did.

after that we went to the city and decided to walk off our brekkie along southbank! ended up near crown.

hee hee! the cute fountain in front of crown...

justin dared me to run across it...*rolls eyes*

some young boy dared though...

Melbourne highrise buildings! :D

we decided to go to the melbourne aquarium which was justtt across the river! (some of the photos are a bit blurry cause its hard to take pictures of fish, they perpetually move around the tank...they're not as cooperative as zoo animals who POSE)

actually we'd been planning the trip since the last time he came but it kept getting put off for some reason or other...

the first thing we saw when we walked in...

ominous yah?

mr. hermit crab surprised by the flash. don't think i was meant to use one...oops

funny looking....mollusc? i dont know what this is :S

beeeeeeg bluee....lobster?

hahaha i'm really bad with fish/aqua organism names :D

Murray Cod! it looks so big and...EWWWWW...

justin in the observation tank! hahahah so fun, u got to crawl under the fish tanks and stick ur head in the globe thingies


Mr. Happy Fish! (so named because he wiggled his fins around a lot)


dodofish lined up at the bottom of the tank (no thats not their real name...)

water dragon!

shark? eel? fish? I DON'T KNOW!

Spot the Sting Ray.

JELLY FISH!! wheee!! little nippers

the Hyundai 'Finn'. its actually a Hyundai Getz which they turned into an aquarium, u can see the little fishes through the car windows. cool huh??

ribbon eeel!

smiley faced sting ray!! soooo cute

our only NICE photo at the aquarium. dammit. justin looks like he's a friggin gangster with that haircut.

and speaking of gangsters. justin with 2 sharks. (think finding nemo)

feeding time in the fish bowl! can see the divers and the ginormous sting ray...didn't manage to get a photo of the shark that could extend it's jaws. sscaaarry.

had a lot more photos but got really lazy to upload them, its already 1am and i have jewellery class again tomorrow morning. justin's moving in tomorrow! yay!

Hmm.. how come I've never seen that fountain in front of Crown before? o_O; I'm guessing I probably have, but it doesn't seem to be registering in my memory..

How much did it cost to enter the Aquarium? I wanted to, but changed my mind after hearing it was pricey. I think I checked the prices online as well, and it was even pricier than Sydney's Aquarium.. :X

15 bucks for concession, 23 bucks for adults.

its more worth it to go to the melbourne/weribee/healesville zoo, it's only 15.80 and you get to see much more! i think we're going this weekend :D

Ugh, I can't get concession... or does that apply to all students? :x I remember getting a "student price" at Sydney's Aquarium, but it was $1 more than melb's..

Yea, been wanting to go to the zoo but then friends kept discouraging me. They said it's really dead o_O No idea why. Lol maybe I'll bring my parents to the zoo...

it applies to all students! just show them your student card, shouldn't be a problem.

ahah the melbourne zoo's quite alright leh, it's got more of a variety of animals whereas the healesville one is more of australian animals and the werribee one has this safari thing :/ can't decide between healesville and weribee
