Misadventures continue… Day 2

April 5, 2009
After an unforgettable first day in Sydney, we started our new day with high spirits… that didn’t seem to last long… just because the rain decided it’s a wonderful day to visit the city with us… how nice……gahhhhhhhh….

Well, without dampening our spirits further, we had a lovely breakfast of deliciously-wicked brownies (baked with love by the babes), bread, ham, and a high dose of morning chatter.. Gosh, those were awesome moments… and we were LOUD…. hahahaha….


After that, we had a mini send off for Diren, our ‘macho-looking-but-can’t- help-dropping-a-tear-or-two’ senior… In another 8 months or less, that would be us…. double gahhhssssss….


After the ’emoness’, we headed of to the city, which is approximately 1 hour away… *woohoo on the outside, grumbling in the inside*

Since God decided to further test our patience before allowing us to act all mad in OZ by sending Mr Rain, our choices became seemingly limited… So we explored Queen Victoria Building, a super-chio shopping mall, with a touch of victorian feel (trying to talk classy here… hahaha…)


The best part of the mall trip was the super-duper chio swaroski christmas tree!!! Imagine a four or five storey high Christmas tree decorated with swaroski crystals, looking all bling bling and inviting…

Straight away i went into my lulu mood and wanted to ‘steal’, errrr … ‘have a closer look’ at the crystals before Super Popo held me back and pointed at the bunch of cctv surrounding the tree…………………….Mission failed.. *sulks*


The worst part of the mall trip…… everything is bloody expensive!!!!!!!!!!!! Since we’re not born as trust fund babies, neither have any socialites potential, we decided to acknowledge our modest position, and pass by those shops with ..errr…. style……………….

After feeling frustrated for not being able to shop without a care..*chuckles*… we went to the sydney aquarium! Remember people… it was raining mercilessly………….

To our pleasant surprise, the aquarium turned out fun after all!




ANd for some reason, Super Popo and Super Chong-ee switched to pro photographers mode and decided to do a documentary on fish and sea life……. *shakes head looking at Super Popo trying to snap a perfect picture of the mischevious clown fish as she was technically kneeling down and switching various positions just to ‘catch up’ with that ‘finding nemo’ fish………… hahaha……..



After a day with sharks, corals, starfish and sting rays………… we were FAMISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We looked like starving zombies, with Super Wira eyeing the popcorn stall lustfully…………lol…… So we met up with Ning Ko, and walked to our food paradise (have i mentioned that we walked a LOT for the whole day? And those places are not even near to each other…………)

The korean bbq and seafood pancake were lovely…. the hot guy nearby was lovely too……… lol….

But my oh my, if cost of living in Auckland is high…… Sydney is crazier….. our standard price for eating out is roughly 10 bucks each, but theirs is double the price… *calculating currency change some more……. aigoooo*



Somehow day 2 ended rather peacefully……. hmm…… does that mean our adventures are gonna take a nice turn now? *fingers-crossed…*
