I’m estimating that this post is going to take a day to write!!

haha there are just too many pictures…
we took two 1Gb memory cards worth of pics!!
haha talk about exaggeration…kiasu singaporeans… n typical tourists…
we ARE!

I look horrible in those pics…but please pay attention to the nice scenery n cute animals ONLY!!

First!! The placeS we stayed at..
we stayed at two different places…

1. Novetel Hotel at Darling Habour

After Group 2 reached… before dinner…


view of darling harbour from hotel room

SIX person in a room == DISASTER!!

2. Waldorf Apartments NEAR Darling Habour


I liked the appartment more…
we have like… SIX persons…so it’s rather squeezy squeezing in 2 squeezy hotel rooms (at first 2…after that 1…aiya..long story)


we were not allowed to throw the bottles that we bought…
gotta use them as waterbottles…
look at how much(disgustingly) we collected over the first three days… UGH~

so…

on the first day ….
we didn’t do much…we pretty much splitted!
we went on TWO FLIGHTS…
first flight was Uncle Chan, Markus (Uncle Chan’s nephew) and Tiffany(my sis)
second(the following morning) was Mommy, Samuel (Uncle Chan’s nephew) and ME! hehe
well, group 1 reached first n thoroughly enjoyed themselves! /hmph
haha but when we reached sydney in the evening, we went for dinner in this uber beautiful restaurant…(cant remember name)


Fish n chips… seafood…

well, there’s this VERY COMMON XMAS TREE!!! i mean…the one at takashimaya (sg) is nicer…
but i wonder why everyone (among us) said it was nice… (/sweat)

that’s about all for the first night…
for the second day… we went to the FISH MARKET!
hehe they sell LOTS N LOTS OF smelly fishes…
UGH!
but the seafood they serve there is rather good for the smell they exude…

after that… we did nothing much except “PROJECT RUNAWAY”
nope..not designing or making clothes…but we changed from novetel to waldorf from the 2nd day to the third last day..
n we DRAGGED OUR LUGGAGE ALL THE WAY to the appartment!!
it was hilarious..
too bad everyone was too bz to take pictures or video…

after that… i don’t really remember the sequence of events…
so i’ll group the pictures according to the places we went… n restaurants that we had eaten in…
not by sequence!

Blue Mountains


we are still unaware of our fate …


The Three Sisters… there’s an aboriginal story behind these cliffs/rock formations. But im too lazy to tell..
anyway…we trekked all the way to one of them… /almost died


This is before the trek… argh.. i still feel cheated…


Steep walls… it’s actually very very high up… n im kinda acrophobic…


Down was mighty ez…now…going BACK UP was the freaking problem…~ but the scenery was beautiful…
we were standing on a bridge… to one of the sisters… n well..if u look down… TRUST ME…u WILL FEEL DIZZY!


Our model resting after the descend …not knowing (or went to think) that we ACTUALLY HAVE TO GO BACK UP!!


Still looking happy here…


Scenic World is something like the summary of Blue Mountains…
they have trams, cable-car-look-alikes to bring u around the blue mountains area…
this is actually the story of the 3 sisters..
naked aborigines n a witchdoctor…yummy…
ask me! n i tell u the story *fufufufu*


This is one of the attractions …
it’s a tram(i think it is) down the steepest slope in the world…
n it was damn good.. the ride i mean…

The FREEZING SAGA

The story is, we went on a Dolphin watching trip.
and err… argh..let the pictures speak for me…


on the boat…


i mentioned Dolphin Watching, didn’t i? they are wild dolphins..n they boat people tracked them using radar…or something like that… it was really cool!


yeah … the freezing starts…
my sister insisted on going down to this net thingy behind the boat…
n err…the water was fucking freezing cold…
brrrrr..
just thinking of it makes me shiver…
as the boat moved…. more COLD FREEZING WATER CAME POURING ON US!! it’s like bathing in ice water..
we were dragged behind the boat… n MORE N MORE COLD FREEZING water …more …mo..re….
ahemz…
yeah…n did i mention that we saw damn lots of jellyfishes in the water on the way ?
i hate jellyfishes…i have a phobia of them…


yeah yeah….freeeeezeee


at least we still bothered to post for the heartless adults on the deck…. they didn’t have the guts to come down…haha


just to prove my point of freezing…

The Food Cult


disgustingly thick pancakes(but not that bad) at The Rocks for breakfast…


my favourite food there…uber delectable ribeye…!!!


they had a “Who can finish the disgustingly sour lime juice first- competition” [Markus & Samuel]



Samuel won … haha n well, tiffany was doing her job as the cutie pie!


Harry’s Hurricane Ribs @ Bondi Beach…
it was F**king HUGE…


A disgusting end… haha



Hunter Valley has the best Dark Chocolate Coated Coffee Beans in the WORLD!!
WOO!


Hunter Valley Chocolate Store …sells candies as well…


Vineyards in Hunter Valley…
we were actually not allowed to enter it..there were surveillance cameras…
but well, they still went in…


my super model mommy…. posing for the camera at the vineyards

Port Stephen + Sand Dune Adventure


Preparing for one helluva car ride… over sand dunes in Port Stephen…


Sandboarding!!
i went once…but no one took picture for me../sob..
haha… the reason i went ONLY ONCE… is in the next two pics~


THE CLIMB BACK UP WILL KILL!
haha…
my sister needed PUSHING! that was really hilarious…she also got stuck when she was sandboarding down…
Samuel went to her rescue… climbed up the sand dune SOOOO many times..that poor dude~


this is acutally how far it was….SUPER DUPER TOUGH CLIMB~


all exhausted … panting… breathing in the fine sand of the dunes…
ahemz..
look at the nice sky behind…
u can never see such clear blue sky in singapore… hmph…


We loved the sand dunes.. i think~

Next..we went to a nearby beach… it was really near…haha
n the tour guide taught us how to dig for pipis (or pee pees) i don’t know the spelling so i shall call them ‘PPs’…
u will witness the cruelty of life… n how brutal women n young children can be … in the next few pictures…
haha


The search for PPs…u actually have to use your legs…n do the twisting motion…dig into the soft sand…n when u hit something hard…
those are the PPs….
u dig them out… n leave them on the soft sand …. n u can witness them dig their way into safety !!


My mom n sis got damn good at it…
they keep diggin’ n diggin’
n i was there thinking if they wanted PPs to go extinct…


we were amused by the PPs ability to dig its way back into the sand…


Super Model wanna-be…


we each dug one… n had a race on whose PP will dig its way into the sand first…
mine was dug by my mom…
she ought to be awarded for getting so many of them…
maybe she would stop if someone praises her… hehe~


the beach was beautiful… breath-taking~


haha…
just proving my point.

Sydney Opera House + Jet Cruise


haha …where’s the wet cement …for me to write “Angeline was here”?


Sister eating corn



we bought lotsa souvenirs at the Weekend market around the area…


we went on the Jet Cruise…which was another helluva experience..
in which most of the time i couldn’t open my eyes coz salty seawater got in…
haha…
but it was really fun..
this was the briefing guy…
kinda cute eh?
i wasn’t the one who took the pic…nobody wanna admit to taking it…
hmm…


purple ponchos given to us… made us look like Barnies United~


the couple in front of me was really x10 CUTE!!
the guy was damn good looking n the lady looked like a super model… with ultra long legs…
/drool


well, we came back to the jetty in ONE PIECE despite the twists, turns n non-stop splashings… haha


Tea Break after the ride…
we had garlic bread…coffee… n wedges with sour cream…


mindless group shot as we were walking back from opera house…

Bondi Beach
I didn’t go down n play with them…
coz i got horridly burnt by the sun the previous day …
haha
yeah yeah … during the dolphin watching session..
while freezing myself out…i got horridly burnt too…


hehe…all prep-ed .
my sister wore her swimming gear all the way from the apartment, to the beach…
it was a long walk + a bus ride + another long walk ….
haha


Strong waves they have there…
Samuel’s glasses got washed away…


it was a very beautiful place…~

Animals Galore
Australia has lots of animals…
well, kangaroos n koalas are everywhere…even on streets! (joking)



we were at the wildlife park … n despite the massive amount of wildlife they have there…
we spent about half n hour on taking pictures… for the Kangaroos..
they were soo cute…


mad people chasing after kangaroos


staring session…


i hope that they were not fighting for real… /cross fingers


A purple lobster…!
we were at the aquarium… with..


a seal that looked dead…


damn lots of sharks…

we also went to a farm… with lots of farm animals for u to feed n touch…
i LOVE that place..i wanna own a farm in the future!


the silky chicken…


Attack of the Farm Animals Part 1


Attack of the Farm Animals Part 2


Sheepish Horror!


Goat scared Tiffany out of her skin… haha
n it wasn’t even moving much…


Uber Cute Piglets


The Long March …
they were following us ALL the way..esp this black goat…it was sooo cute
by my mom was kinda freaked out by it..
haha


relentless following turned into stalking~


a very friendly donkey..
the ponies refused to let us touch them…


one of the goat that followed us since we entered the farm.. hehe..


it was the fiercest(at least it looked like it is) kangaroo..
no one dared to go near it..so i tried ! n succeeded! hehe


haha my mom was really scared of them..

n we also went to another wildlife park…which was similar to a zoo


my favourite animal(now)… the WOMBAT!


isn’t it cute…. /melt


a very friendly kookaburra…


we also fed violent birds(emu) and kangaroos there..


they have albino kangaroos… very beautiful creatures, they are


they too have mating salamanders
… not for children under 18 …haha


hehe
not a very rare sight i know… but it was nice to see..

Misc Photos


at the vineyards… looking silly
haha


after the very-thick-pancakes breakfast


we slept in the car a lot!



what’s so nice n special about this building? i don’t even know..
i was asked to pose..that’s all… hehe


in case u haven’t noticed…
there’s a rather cool submarine in front of the battleship in the background


if i didn’t remember wrongly
we were standing in front of a court house…
either that or a police station..
pure tourist dumbness


we took the very expensive-not-worth-it monorail ONCE!
hehe


before we headed for the aquarium…


At Sydney Olympics Stadium…


dumbass posing..


we were more interested in the playground at the stadium, rather than the nice tracks and pools they have there… haha

yeah..that kinda summarized my trip..
i like Sydney..but i think i LOVE Gold Coast more..
hehe The Three Worlds in Gold Coast are still the best!
