So much food to choose from, not sure where to start at.

Finally now I have arrived from Hobart to melbourn and had my bags all safely checked in. Was very lucky because the luggages weigh totalled up 32kg or so, when my luggage allowance was only 20kg. The guy at the coutner that checked me in was very reluctant to do so, from the way I see. Hehehe...
Anyway, it is very sad that my week long holiday here at Hobart has finally ended. I wish I could come back to Hobart again sometime soon! I want to eat the fresh salmon that is abundant in the market as well as fresh seafood from the market.
I shall not forget the beautiful Mount Wellington as well, also the fact that the wind there almost blew me off at one point in time!!
Till then, I am signing off here. Will catch my flight in a bit!

What's in Mark's hand??? See See See... it is a large 3.7kg Fresh Atlantic Salmon. Paid like AUD$50+ for it!!
sashimi without wasthing time.
Steak Diane for dinner as well on one of the night.
Of course, I wouldn't forget the nice beers we tasted at Cascade Brewery.
Sausage bread, a fairly common offer at the Salamanca Market.
Hmm... pretty small market, and very touristy. Things here are not so cheap to buy really. Just sampled some food here and there.
Decided to grab something to eat. And we had a sausage from this stall.
Then went wealking around in the city. The city is really small.... gives me a feeling of a shrunk Melbourne City? Haha... well, Hobart has its own beauty as well, there is generally less traffic around the area. One thing for sure, parking around here is extremely expensive on weekday, and hard to find as well.
Later on, went to the Tasmania Museum. Didn't take any pictures, but the free admission make the visit quite worthwhile. They have this small little corner on the upstair dedicated to the Antartica Research. Little that people know that Hobart is where one of the Ice-breaker ship -- Aurora Australis sail to the antartica for research purposes.
Should go there if you have time.

I paid AUD$15 as an visitor, while Mark paid AUD$10 as a student. So, we were given a tour around the hold buildings and process of making beer.
This, in return, actually make Cascade beer as a top of the line beer and more expensive to drink till drunk.
But, for a ticket of AUD$15, we were given 3 tasting of different kind of beers. So Mark and I really tought the price wasn't bad.
Cool, we load ourselves with freddo chocolate while waiting for our turn for the trip
At AUD$12.50, I think the ticket wasn't so bad. At the end of the trip, we were given a small box of chocolate as our souvinirs. Haha...
The smell of this factory, is too chocolately to my taste. I think I prefer the yeast smell from the Cascade brewery better.
Anyway, sorry for not much pics, as camera was not allowed inside the factory.
