Lately, its been heating up here in Melbourne. With our first taste of the warmer weather during that week of over 40 something degree heat, Melbournians are probably just about ready to take on the summer. Regardless of weather you prefer to hit the beach with your friends or stay indoors where the air conditioning is turned on, with summer finally making its grand appearance. This means going to the beach, hitting the swimming pool, hanging out with friends, attending summer festivals and eating ice cream…or in my case, gelato. And where can we find some good ol’ home made gelato? Why, Gelato Messina of course.
So over the course of this month I have had days where I was going to be completely on top of everything and other days where I felt like doing nothing. Now that I’m back to work, more than ever am I ever careful with how I go about spending my time, especially in such a way that will help me achieve some of my goals for this year.

With a lot of shops closing over the Christmas break well after the New Year’s, it was a hit and miss a lot of the times when trying to find a place that was going to be open not long after New Year’s day.

When my dad heard about the Melbourne Star being open, he really wanted to go check it out. Not only did he want to ride it once, but twice (because it worked out to be a better value that way). After finishing the first ride, we needed to find a way to kill some time and more importantly the growling of our stomach. How convenient it was that Gold Leaf was just across the boardwalk to the Melbourne Star in Harbour Town. And more importantly, it was still open.
I was hearing a lot of things over the foodie networks (aka Urbanspoon) about Hammer and Tong 412 and decided it was about time I went to see what all the fuss was about. Located on Brunswick not far from other popular foodie joints like Little Creatures Dining Hall and Vegie Bar, Hammer and Tong is a restaurant that caters its customers with the choice of three dining areas. You may choose to eat in the main dining area, the sun hall (which is beautifully lit from the large glass windows, it feels like your eating on a garden porch) or the corridor bar (which is a bit more cosy).
