Sydney Trip Continued

And so, on the second day of my Easter Sydney Trip, we went to the famous Sydney Fish Market.

And here I am, being a jakun in the tram. lol. Sydney's transport system is very much different from here. More expensive too.

Here are some photos taken at the fish market.

Notice most of the people there are Asians?

The yummy seafood platter.

The shuper fresh sashimi.

And the not-so-yummy baked cheese lobster. Really not worth trying. At All.

Lazy to put captions. Lol. To cut the long story short, we visited all the famous tourist spots at Circular Quay.

Not to forget, the Royal Botanical Gardens where you can catch the best view of the Opera House together with the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Went to the city for some (window) shopping after that.

Shall end this chapter here. Will see if I have time to continue the 'Sydney series'. A lot to do for the coming few weeks. Thanks for reading peepol!

Lotsa love,

Sydney 2012

Finally, a short break from uni and work. It was during our summer break back in Malaysia that me and my cousin randomly decided to go on a trip during our Easter break. She studies in Brisbane and me in Melbourne so we thought that it would be great to meet up at the center point - Sydney. On a side note, I used to have thought that Sydney was the capital of Australia when I was in primary school.

So we really did make it to Sydney despite all the shit that happened to me on the first day. Long story short, I missed the flight, I had to forfeit my ticket and pay 139AUD for a new ticket to get on the next flight. And it wasn't my fault at all! zz. Stupid Jetstar.

Once we arrived, we checked into the hotel, walked to Chinatown and had dimsum for lunch. Not as nice as Malaysia dimsum of course.

Lined up for the famous cheap mini chinese cream puffs at Chinatown. (4 for AUD 1.00)

Not as nice as expected. But cute.

 Visited the Paddy's Market. Sells mostly souvenirs.

Walked to Darling Harbour after that.

Saw this somewhere near Chinese Garden on the way to Darling Harbour.

The Chinese Garden.

Unfortunately the Chinese Garden was closed by the time we went there so we can only take photos outside.

A small part of Darling Harbour.

Fireworks at night @Darling Harbour to conclude Day 1. Beautiful.

Think that's enough for today. :) TA! - Meet Millions of Bloggers
