Acland Street In St. Kilda

I haven't been to St. Kilda in a long time and last weekend we did when we went to farewell the yachts off. St. Kilda is Alex Allied's territory so when you come down here, you have to pay homage to tai kor first!

This is Acland Street in St. Kilda the most popular street in this suburb where most people come for the restaurants and all the arty farty shops they have here.


This place is always full of people just hanging around like a bad smell. I decided to join in! Have to go with the flow man! When you're in Rome do what the romans do, in this case its St. Kilda.

Trompoline is a local ice cream shop here and its always choke full of customers on a hot day like today. I think that lady spotted me taking this picture but lucky she didn't tell me off! Siao lah!


Like I said the place is full of wacky shops like this hair salon with the rocket on the roof. Maybe the hair-stylist is an alien who flies in to work and back in that rocket.

Not wanting to loose to that rocket salon, this salon's owner wanted to be more wacky by putting a 'party on the beach' on his roof! Ahh..keeping up with the competitions!

Btw, what digital camera model/brand are you using ? Thinking of buying one and I think all the pictures you have taken so far is VERY GOOD. :)
