It is not too bad... its cheaper relatively in comparison to Albert Park or East Melbourne

My wild guess for those nice terrace houses will be 'only' $800K to $1.5M

and according to REIV Carlton is the Melbourne highest growth in property prices ie >64% growth in Median prices jump from last year - increased to $867K

there are some pockets of Carlton which is full of apartments as it is a university precinct

Gertrude Street is the bees knees and Ladro is the best place for Pizza!
Smith Street is funky, dangerous, hip and grubby, my kind of place.
Great shots again Ali!
p.s. Love the Rathdowne Village as well.

Camberwell Sunday Market

Camberwell Sunday Market

It is a popular spot to purchase a 'vintage' or simply bargain stuffs - either old record, used clothing or just 'antiques' thingy - name them and they are all there for sale

It has pretty extensive selections - would love to go back there for more shoppings!


I went there last sunday morning with Gappa and Brandy the dog


Brandy got excited with that hunky black dog





Brandy got excited with male brown dog... she is such a beeyatch... (Which she is...)



btw- started with a brekky




oooh dolls and wigs ....





people are everywhere







dont tell me.. are they Manohlos???



cant figure out what the hell it is??




some exotic thingy....???


gappa is looking serious ...? shall i buy this hat? and those earings?


and moi


and Brandy -- where are the other dogs...? i am so bored...




i found a cat


more people


We ended up with another coffee and a pancake

i bought a silver candle holder - a very Art Deco looking for $20!

It was a fun day

A Birthday in the City

A Birthday in the City


Today is my birthday and I want to celebrate it by visiting the city for lunch, coffee and shopping...

I cought a train to the city about midday (took a day off) and the photos started at the Blackburn Train station







arrived at Southern Cross station - and the new Docklands precinct






some new developments can be seen from the Batman Hill








Then started walking to Collins street - West end side










my office tower



It was lunch time... so many office workers are out and about
I am meeting my friend (below) for quick lunch at Negroni - just outside my office








From inside Negroni







from lunch - i then keep on walking towards Swanston street - alongside this famous Collins St




The swanky new Silk Road bar.....









The Eureka is towering the city...






Tram station - cnr of Elizabeth street
















A volunteer for city of Melbourne at work





City Square





will finish it off tomorrow.. too tired

Great thread.
thanks dude

I do really like Alphaville fashion - it is so quintesentially Melbourne look... think of Brunswick street/Fitzroy and those laneways
The problem is .. that i deliberately omitted previously... I am not only too old.. but I also need to shed the sizeable of 10kg of my love handles so i can wear their garments...

When i was there.. cute little skinny young thing tried the skinny jeans and he was shocked that he has to resort to size 28 !!! about 6 size smaller than mine !!! beyatch!
