Melbourne Museum

Saturday morning I visited Melbourne museum. By the time I arrived at 8.50am, the queue was very long waiting for the museum door to be opened.

There is a special exhibition on the classic Titanic display. But I didn’t go to Imax (with extra charges) though.

However, I visited some other exhibits including local aboriginal culture, and the famous racinghorse Phar Lap. Cool.

melbourne’s tram

Although Abdul Haseeb taught me on how to purchase a tram’s ticket inside a tram, I was still confused at first.

Fortunately, when I asked one of the chinese student (I think I think) passenger, he told me where the ticket’s machine is located. It also accepts coins, and if you put extra money, the machine will throw the balance back to you. Cool.

our community mosque

On the first day of my arrival here, I was brought to the nearest mosque in the area by a good and pious Abdul Haseeb. He is sitting next to me in the office.

In the mosque, I met some Malaysian students. Cool.

alone in melbourne city

Last night after work, I went to the downtown Melbourne city by myself. I caught a tram number 19 and went straight to the Yarra River. I snapped some photos of the city’s skyline.

Yes, I managed (finally) to play round with the RAW captured films in Photoshop and above is the result. But it’s a very time consuming task. Hopefully you like it too. Cool.
