Dont get confused between my personality & my attitude...

My personality is who I am...

My attitude depends on who you are...

XR6 is a good choice.. make sure you open the bonnet to drool at the 4lit I-6 engine before driving it... wub.gif wub.gif

If you have chance to go to their flea market, you might wanna look at their Leather jacket, provided you wear one, it's dirt cheap compare to SG...

Their police are very strict, TP or Police can catch speedster or what ever funny thing you try to do, becareful of their speed cams, sure activate once u above the speed limit even by 1kph.

Careful on the hook turns if there are any as well.

Will be going to Melbourne for a week with my family this coming school holiday.... Any good lobang on which car rental to rent a car at Tullamarine airport?



renting a car is cheap. parking in melbourne will be a $$ killer.


i would suggest take teksi from airport (abt AUD50) if you're juz visiting the city and rent only when you're going out of town and drop-off at the airport on the way back.

Budget is very popular, cheaper than Avis and Hertz. If need a GPS, cheaper to bring your own Garmin GPS (if you have one) to Australia, because to rent one in Australia is around AUD$10-$20 per day.

Watch out for the infamous Hook Turn.

Yea, I'm aware of the hook turn, though I have not personally encountered it yet. Seen this a lot in Taipei, though it's only for bikers, but the concept is the same. I wonder if the hook turn sign will appear early enough. It's difficult to change lane if it's too near to the intersection.

I'll be staying slightly offskirt of Melbourne, so renting from airport will make sense to me. On the day that we plan to go to the city, we will like be taking the public transport.... We'll see how...

You can either take a train to City or park at Crown casino ($6 for 6hr), this is the cheapest parking fee ever in City.

Go to Queen Victoria Market in the city. Is like a huge pasar malam. Shop until you drop. Things there quite cheap. Also quite accessible via train/tram. I bought bags and souvenirs there on my last trip.

But IIRC, is closed on Mondays and Wednesdays. Most other days open till until after lunch only, so have to go in morning.
