This Week’s 5 Melbourne Facts

 

1 — They use “s” in place of “z.” For example, “realise” not “realize.” For the longest time, I thought my boyfriend couldn’t spell; but in reality it’s just the way.

2 — Construction cones = “witch hats.” It really makes sense (if witches hats were orange).

3 — You pump before you pay. That’s right! They trust you to put gas (or petrol) in your car then go to the counter to pay the amount.

4 — Champagne is shortened to “champas,” because everything is cut in half here.

5 — Melbourne is all about their AFL footy and this weekend happens to be the Grand Final (like our Super Bowl).
