Before I start the Day #2 post proper, let me present the breakfast we had for the next few days.
Okay, now we get to business. The agenda of the day was very simple – Go to the Post Office, then to Central Market, and finish with the Adelaide Zoo. While mum did think of taking the tram which circled town at first, we decided to take a walk, since it passed the Adelaide Post Office.
Before I continue, I must warn some of my friends not to scream. Presenting…
ADELAIDE POST OFFICE
If you watched the TVB Drama Serial, “Triumph in the Skies”, this place was featured. At least I’m sure of it.
Quoting my good friend Raven Silvers, “This is how I imagined Fullerton to be when it was still a post office.” I won’t lie, the place looked amazing, reminded me of King’s Cross, even though I only saw it in movies and stuff.
After which, it was just crossing the road, past Victoria Square and making a right turn to…
The first thing you notice upon entering the place – dry floors and incredibly organised, clean stalls.
Then, the great variety of all the fresh produce, meats, and of course, confections.
Central Market was actually connected to Chinatown, where they had many shops and food courts with a wide selection of Asian food – it felt a bit funny seeing how Char Siew Rice in a Singaporean/ Malaysian food stall could cost AUD8.50 or something along that line. It was not something unheard of though.
And the the various wings of the Central Market had shops set up, selling clothes, souvenirs, together with other cafes, so sort of like those everything-under-one-roof kinds of markets.
Lunch that day was light, since we had an incredibly full breakfast. Had to say though, I could now cross “Meat Pie” out of my “To-Eat” list for Australia.
Adelaide Zoo and Pancake Kitchen are a separate post on their own, since they are quite a bit to talk about. I shall then leave you with two of the coolest buskers we encountered that day.
