Mummy in Melbourne again (part 2)

You might think that my love of being in front of the camera is a little extreme but I can tell you that I inherited that trait from my mum! She LOVES to take selfies and she takes it to a further extreme than me (if you have a chance to look at the pictures in her mobile you will understand). I hope she never gets her hands on a selfie-stick! That was why when we went sightseeing, I knew the best way to please her was to take a lot of pictures of her. I am glad we went to the scenic places that really managed to satisfy her camera-lust. Of course I had to be in those pictures as well—this is why I will be dedicating a separate post for the snaps she took of me at the Hot Springs. Hahaha.

Also, it looks like my mum and I will be taking more pictures of ourselves soon when I head back to Singapore in less than a week's time for her 70th birthday celebration as well as another VERY important event. For now, please enjoy the second part of my time with mummy dearest in Melbourne (first part is here).


Part one of the pictures taken during my Mum's first trip to a proper hot spring today. It's hard to find someone who loves to be in front of the camera as much as me! And this person is none other than Mummy dearest! — at Peninsula Hot Springs.


Here is the second part of the hot spring snaps. Hands up if you think we look great in them! We are both feeling so blissfully relaxed now... — at Peninsula Hot Springs.


Last stop before dinner - more picture-taking at the scenic Cape Schank. Our tummies are growling now and I think Korean might be a good idea for tonight. — at Cape Schank.


Ision doesn't think too highly of this place and he only realised this AFTER pestering me to take him here, and I did tonight, along with Mum. — with Ision Ensor at Oriental Spoon.


After a gym workout, the best thing to reward yourself is with dim sum. There are only two of us today sans Ision as he's feeling under the weather. We could have tried more items if he were here. Well at least Mum got her wish to yum cha this trip. — at Crystal Jade Restaurant.


Yet another of mum's market-exploration days, this time to one she's never been to before. Since there are more markets in Melbourne than Sydney and she loves markets, I can safely assume she prefers Melbourne to Sydney. But I'm not too sure if we take weather into consideration. — at South Melbourne Market.


Enroute to the Twelve Apostles. Lunching and soaking in the sights in the meantime. — at Apollo Bay Main Beach.


 
Happy snaps from our Great Ocean Road trip this afternoon. I've been here many times but I guess the important thing is Mum got to enjoy herself today. — at Great Ocean Road.


Another superb Great Ocean Road photo-taking location was what we needed and that was what we got. The tide came in to wet both our shoes but the pictures that resulted from our venture were so worth it! — at Loch Ard Gorge.


Mum finally found her favourite dish this trip - Thai glass noodle seafood salad (first dish pictured). What a satisfying meal! — at Ghin Khao.


Years of housewifery have perfected Mum's shopping and bargaining skills at the market. Looking forward to the feast tonight! By the way, shopping includes groceries AND wigs. — at Queen Victoria Markets.


One happy family. Our last meal together in a little while. As autumn grows on us, what better home-cooked meal is there other than hotpot?


10 days flew by so fast and now that she is on her way back to Singapore, I've got to prepare for my own flight back to work. I hope she has truly enjoyed her stay this time. I will see you again very soon Mummy. — at Melbourne International Airport Mel International Departures.
