In my last post, Emily asked if I can put up more photos on the Lunar New Year street festival at Richmond. This post is for you, Emily. The colourful Victoria Street of Richmond, an inner city suburb of Melbourne.
Street food of Vietnam in Melbourne.
Fresh sugarcane juice stall. The two metal rollers machine is used to crush the sugarcane by pushing through one end and coming out the other end to extract the fresh juice. Some crushed ice is then added to chill the drink.
The fried coconut cake stall.
The only Thai food stall selling traditional Thai Papaya Salad.
Another stall selling grilled and fried street food.
The colourful traditonal paper umbrella.
And, finally the colour of prosperity and good fortune in red and yellow (gold). An artificial cherry blossom tree filled with dangling “red packets” stuffed with possibly money.
