A trip to Richmond

It was weekend and hardly any shop is open for lunch. Weekend in Hobart is like living in dead city. So I came up a plan to go Tandoor for lunch with Michelle. But Nachi called me up and said that Mac is going on a road trip to Richmond. Finally, there is something to do on the weekend. And finally, my dream of going to Richmond is fulfilled.

It is amazing that whilst all the shops in the city are closed on weekend, all the shops in Richmond remain its operation. The place is kinda laidback French village style. I love it a lot. I swear I'm going there again if I can.


Above is the oldest bridge in Australia. The first bridge ever built in Australia. Look at the serenity of the photo. So peaceful right? Like a piece of painting.

The highlight of the day was the Olde Time Portrait. Everyone goes to Richmond for that. The boys didn't want to take the photo on that day. They prefer to wait to take with the whole family. Meanwhile, Sharmilla, Vani and I couldn't resist it. It's a waste of effort to get to Richmond without taking the photograph. It's quite an experience. I just love the vintage dress on me. It looks so...vintage. What else can I say? But the photographer is a wee bit psycho in her head. She asked us to smile widely and the next minute she asked us not to smile. So the photo turned out as if we're constipated 'cos we couldn't control it. Here it is...


Please don't laugh...I love the photo.

Richmond? I got chased out of Richmond for laughing too much in a cafe because a guy had herbal tea bags in his top pocket.

I know you had to be there, but it's put me off the place...
