Victoria Market with Mum and Tubby's Cast Removal

Went with mum to Victoria Market a few weeks ago. She wanted to go down there to shop for gifts and souvenirs for her friends. We probably went down a tad too late and the stalls there started packing up way before the closing time. Apparently they start at 6am in the morning! I really wonder who shops at that time! Why can't they just open and close a bit later? Closing at like 2-3pm in the arvo is just silly as people are still out shopping.

Anyway we decided to make the most of the 1.5 hours we had there. And having not been there for a long time, I was surprised at some of the new things that they had.
Came across this Socks Stall selling all kinds of socks and saw these really cute animal socks!
Mum also caught up for a bit with my High School mate King Yen's mum - Mrs Han.
Very beautiful and elegant German Tealight Candle Holders. Not cheap as well!
Mum taking a closer look at one of the leggings and was trying to bargain.
On the way back at Melbourne Central, we just couldn't resist taking a quick look at these cute puppies at the Pet Shop. They are of Maltese / Terrier breed mix.

I couldn't resist getting one of the animal socks! They were just too cute! It was two pairs for $10 and we could mix and match. So mum took another long colourful type without any funny design. And I took a cow because somehow it reminded me of Tubby! Haha! :p

Another happy occasion was that Tubby's finally had his cast removed last Monday. His legs really look like "chicken" legs - all thin and scrawny for now. He needs to wear a Cam Walker Boot and learn to walk that leg again. Meantime he's still needs the aid of his crutches as well but as least he can walk on both legs now.
In the plaster room, the nurse turning on the saw to cut off the very hard cast!Another pic here and the careless nurse actually made a few minor cuts on his leg!
The wound area where he was operated on. Check out the filthy feet! :SHere's an X-Ray of his leg showing the screws and metal plates!

I'm still getting my lazy ass to continue with the wedding blog so I can launch it on time! But just too busy with outings and stuff! :p
