Di Bella Roasting Warehouse in North Melbourne, lunching with my mum & sis, organic lemon lime bitters with a kick, the salad special with crispy pork & apple and the chicken mince salad, cute details, my mum!
A North Melbourne gem!
A short walk from Errol street and you will find this trendy warehouse-style eatery with patrons spilling out on to the footpath through the gaping roller door wall. After having a heavy and not so healthy Macca’s breakfast at the airport and sweating from the super hot weather, it was nice to sit down in the shade of this popular coffee joint. As it was super hot that day, I actually didn’t order their coffee opting for a big, juicy salad instead. I must visit again soon as it was a sin to not order the coffee at a place like this!
The service was easy-going and very friendly and we ordered the day’s special crispy pork salad and chicken mince Thai style salad. These dishes were perfect for a day that was super hot and dry. Paired with their organic lemon and lime bitters, the salads were very satisfying. I also felt comfortable having my pram at the table and our waitress kindly seated us in a pram-friendly area which was basically right at the front of the warehouse so we were able to people watch while we enoyed our lunch!
I’m glad we ventured away from Errol street to find yet another quality Melbourne eatery – definitely coming back to this place soon!
Bopha Devi’s dishes – I was caught up in conversation with my besties so sorry I can’t name the dishes for you in the above photos! The staff were very helpful though, so just ask them for their recommendations if you are not sure what dish to order!
Bopha Devi – Yarraville and Docklands
The thing I love about Melbourne is no matter how long I have lived here I am always discovering new places that are perfect for catching up with friends. Bopha Devi is one of them. A cute little restaurant in Yarraville serving Cambodian cuisine. I have never tried Cambodian cuisine before and its light, fresh tasting dishes had me hooked in one spoonful! With much more understated flavours than other Asian cuisines that I’m used to, the Cambodian food at Bopha was very tasty and elegantly presented. For me the freshness reminded me of the fresh Vietnamese food I ate in Saigon last year and the flavours in the curry dish reminded me a little of Thai food but not as strong.
If you’re looking for a place to catch up with friends on a relaxed weeknight, the Yarraville institution is perfect! For more of a special celebration then I suggest Bopha Devi in the Docklands as it is a lot bigger and the interior a little fancier than its Yarraville sibling.
What is something new that you have tried lately?
Hi everybody! Happy Friday!
It has been a while since I took over mummy’s blog because I have been busy having lots of tummy time and laughs with mummy and daddy 🙂 There are so many new things that I am learning like how to support my neck and sit up with the help of mummy and daddy and also we have been reading lots of books. I do not really understand what those nursery rhymes mean but the pictures are interesting and mummy and daddy seem to find the rhymes amusing and they like to reminisce about their own childhood – hehehheh old people! 😛
The pics I’ve chosen today are of outfits where I am wearing an awesome t-shirt which was a present from one of mummy’s friends! I like it a lot as it’s grey colour is easy to match with my other clothes and it is super comfy! And of course it has headphones like the ones daddy uses when he goes out to dj. I heard mummy saying that the t-shirt is from Next. Mummy bought my red & grey striped hoodie from Charlie & Me and she has teamed it up with some red Bonds bottoms! The hoodie also has a dj theme – daddy must be proud when I wear these! I am his mini-me! 🙂
I hope you all have a happy Friday and fun weekend! Stay tuned for more ootd’s and if you have Instagram you can follow mummy on “jacqfruit” 🙂
– Baby D –
Happy Friday everyone!!
I thought I’d change it up and post a video for you today because Baby has started to become so much more alert and interactive with us! He loves to have d&m’s with his daddy and the other day after going out for my birthday lunch, I captured this video of baby and I just chillin’ on the bed. I put captions in just for fun.
Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Happy New Year everybody! I am taking over mummy’s blog today because she has been so busy lately that I noticed she has not posted anything here for you.I got a bit too excited about my first Christmas & New Year’s celebrations that there are a few more photos than usual! I am sure you all do not mind 🙂
my first acting gig lol!!
my great grandma!!
Christmas was all about family 🙂 It was so nice to see that everywhere people were celebrating this special time of year with their mummy’s and daddy’s, brothers and sisters etc (Mummy thinks that I am not paying attention when she is on the laptop and thinks that I sit there just sucking my hand, but I am really checking out what she is looking at on these websites called Facebook and Twitter hehehe!).
This Christmas I was so lucky to meet and spend time with all my aunties and uncles and grandparents and great grandparents! I was also very lucky to receive so much love, cuddles, kisses and presents from everyone. I think mummy and daddy thoroughly enjoyed opening my presents this first Christmas.Everyone keeps saying Christmas is all about me now! Heheheh! I was trying to be a good boy for mummy and daddy by sleeping lots during Christmas eve so that they could eat and hang out with their cousins and aunties. But by the next day, Christmas day, I was quite tired and cried a little bit when we went to see Daddy’s side. It did not seem to matter because everyone still wanted to hold me and carry me and hug me 🙂 I feel so happy! 🙂
round fruits for New Year’s eve!
Mummy & Daddy took me outside to see the fireworks! – our first family pic of 2013
Mummy and Daddy spent NYE at home with me and all their friends came over to celebrate too! It was so noisy outside with the neighbours bringing in the new year and people setting off some huge firework things! I was excited too but by the time it was midnight it did not matter how loud the festivities got, I just went straight to sleep because I had had a big day that last day of 2012 (mummy and daddy were cleaning and shopping and doing lots of prep for the night time guests!).
Overall it was just the best holiday time ever! I got up to a few things: I got to play Baby Jesus during the kids Christmas mass, I was able to “party” with mummy and daddy during their new year’s celebrations, I did a massive poo explosion on Christmas day which is why you see me naked in one of the photos!
I hope all of you had a memorable Christmas and New Year’s with your families and friends! I sure did!! 🙂
