To mum dearest, Melbourne Day 1 (Part 2)

“After taking a break at Sulin’s place, we went down 2 blocks away to attend a gig at a place called The Toff. Two local bands were playing that night, one was called The Good China Band and the other was Jack’s Castle. I had a pint of Dab beer while watching the performance. The good thing about the nightscene nowadays is that you’re not allowed to smoke indoors, so it was a pretty clean environment, except for people dancing away while having a pint at hand. Smokers were supposed to go outdoors to take a puff or else they’ll get fine.

The band performances were pretty good, very folksy with some upbeat tunes. And somehow, Jack’s Castle was pretty popular there because people were singing away to the band.

After that, we went to get a Souvlaki at Stalactites. Don ordered a mixed souvlaki with chicken and lamb in it. It’s almost like kebab with the meat being grilled on a skewer, and wrapped in pita with lettuce, tomato, onion and homemade tzatziki in it. It’s opened 24 hours.

Oh, I didn’t try McDonald’s here because apparently, this place called Hungry Jack’s is a lot better. And true to it, it IS alot better than Maccas. That’s what they call McDonald’s around here. I had a bite out of Sulin’s Chargrilled Chicken burger. NICE! Smelled a lot better than McDonald’s too. And it’s opened 24/7.

And oh, apparently some whites here are pretty racist. Brian told me he went to a bar with an Indian man and a white bloke approached the Indian and started insulting him, saying stuff like “You people come here and steal our jobs, drive all the taxis…”

It’s 3.55AM now and I’m gonna head to bed soon.”
