    Thanks very much, Cara. I will definitely pay a visit to the temple sometime soon.

    Obviously we are from the same neighbourhood.

    What I miss the most about home

    1. Long standing friendships and family
    2. The ease of familiarity and routine
    3. Carlton coffee shops
    4. Victoria Market - where I can buy everything I need at one place and enjoy the experience at the same time!
    5. All the wonderful mum's I have met through my daughter through play groups, ballet, music
    6. Princes Park and Curtain Square - two fantastic parks in Melbourne just up the road from home
    7. Clean air
    8. Public toilets that DO NOT have exposed side bins of used toilet paper!
    9. Pram friendly footpaths and lots of parks with grass you can sit on!
    10. My house, my neighbourhood and my work
    11. Reasonably priced organic food
    12. Size 41 footwear

    Great post by the way Aussiegirl! Thanks.
    Sea Princess, I apologise, I didn't mean to make you feel so homesick, I'm sorry! I'm feeling the pinch at the moment myself and so this post got me thinking about all of the things I miss about Melbourne. It does sound like we are from the same neighbourhood. Hubby and I used to live in Parkville and spent a lot of time in Carlton, drinking coffee and eating gelato (Brunettis - yum!) in the warmer months.

    From what I read it seems there is a fare few Aussies missing things from 'home'. Matty thank you very much for also sharing all the wonderful things about Hong Kong (and Cara too!). It is always good to focus on what we have rather than what we do not have.

    Very nice! Hubby and I are going back to Australia in August and have already started discussing which restaurants we want to visit, what food we want to buy from the markets, where we are going to go to get coffee and cake and where we are going to get cooked breakfasts from. It seems our trip will revolve around meals (with a touch of family)!
