Last week I went to Melbourne for a day. It was for a job interview - I'm crossing my fingers that I get this job, because it is a permanent, full-time teaching position. But, the interview only lasted about 20 minutes. That left me the rest of the day to hang out in Melbourne.
Although it was rainy, and cold, I spent several hours wandering around the city centre, just getting the feel for the city. There were loads of people in suits, and even more people in skinny jeans. I saw salons offering eye lash perms (only in a city...). I saw cupcake bakeries. I went on a search for Melissa shoes, which took me into some interesting boutique shops. I scored myself a pair of Summer sandals, in black. They smell like cake and they make my feet happy.
I got a vegan burger, which tasted like fast food from my pregan days, but so much nicer -- a soft, delicious bun, and really great pickles.
I ordered the onion rings too, with tomato sauce. They were beatiful - crunchy and greasy with that sweet onion-y flavour.
I also got a serve of 'chicken' nuggets, with Thai satay sauce. I didn't get a shot of these, but they looked strikingly similar to the last time I ordered these - but with a different sauce. The satay sauce was tasty, but really thick. And either the sauce or the nuggets were a bit salty. I am impressed with myself that I ate all of this food in one go.
