Day 05: The End of Part 1

Moving on to the fifth day of our 31 Days Adventure which also marked the end of the first part of the trip and we checked out the hotel for real this time round. Good bye, Cosmopolitan Hotel! 

Family photo in our tiny-weeny room. 
The Petite Room of Cosmopolitan Hotel was located on the two-and-a-half storey of the hotel. 
Another family photo in the car.

Back at Dendy Street Beach Brighton (about 15mins drive from our hotel) first thing in the morning to take a closer look at the 82 colorful Brighton Bathing Boxes that we missed out the previous day.  This tourist and cultural icon of Melbourne was on my must-go list! Thankful for the nice weather and we can bring Duffy out for a walk on the beach! :) 

Entrance to the beach
Loving the vibrant colours of the boxes! 
Before we leave the beach.. guess what we saw! Infringement notices (in Singlish SUMMON) sticking on the two cars next to ours.. 

So be sure you pay and display your parking ticket! Otherwise, the penalty is AUD70!!!

The rest of the afternoon was spent SHOPPING in one of Melbourne's outlet mall - DFO South Wharf! The name says it all, Direct Factory Outlet. The mall offers a wide range of the Australian and international brands under one roof.

Check out my new kicks! 
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you the most expensive and scariest parking charges I've ever seen in my life. AUD30 (SGD36.90) for that few hours of shopping in the DFO!! Thankfully, a 50% parking discount will be given to the mall's customers. Just remember to grab a discount ticket from any of the store cashier. 

***
On the way to Melbourne CBD for another round of shopping. Hi babyboy! 
Chanced upon the existence of this Sweet & Nut Shop (located in a corner of the CBD) while researching on places to buy macadamia nuts and nougats for souvenirs in Melbourne. Bought a bar of their homemade cranberry nougat (original nougat with a hint of sourness from the dried cranberries) and a packet of honey macadamia nuts for AUD19

***
Dropped off our car at the car rental depot and the night was spent at Melbourne Airport because we had an early flight at 7:10AM (local time) to catch to the second part of the adventure - New Zealand!!!
