My Sydney trip

Back from our three-day marathon in Sydney. Left on a MH flight on Sat at 7p.m. Our SIN-KUL flight got delayed, so more time to shop @ Changi Airport duty free! Haha... Got loads of make-up & my DKNY perfume... Yippee! A GOOD start to the holiday! From KUL, we reached Sydney on Sunday 9 a.m. (Syd time, 2 hours ahead of S'pore).

Spent the whole of Sunday eating & walking & shopping. In that order... LOL. Went to Dragon Gate @ Chinatown for a lovely dim sum breakfast, then had Thai food for lunch near The Rocks (cos Pancakes was closed for renovations... Oh man...), then fish & chips @ Watsons Bay, and met Nic's school friends @ Una's (an Austrian restaurant that serves the BEST chicken schnitzel, deep-fried cheese & deep-fried mushrooms... Yummy! Reminiscent of Taiwan Shilin Ye Shi's mushrooms!).

Rolling out of bed bright & early the next day, we spent the entire day @ Blue Mountains & walked the Jenolan Caves... There was even 1 cave called 'Temple of Baal'! Gosh... We went for the Imperial Cave route though.

Reaching the city again, we went on to have the yummiest Korean food.

Check out my 'mini seafood omelette'... I ate 1/3 and couldn't take it no more! Hahaha! Huge servings!!! Coffee with Edwin & Peifen ended the day... Our very FIRST cuppa since Sunday!

Tuesday was a mad rush... We managed to squeeze in breakfast @ Fish Market & then a bit of nougat-shopping @ Chinatown before rushing back to the hotel to check out & get pretty for Nic's graduation.

Had a wonderful ceremony. Thank God for the opportunity that Nic had to really shine for God in UNSW... His Head of School even came by to speak to his parents (I had to interpret...) to share his congratulations as well as to explain to them the magnitude of the Uni Medal. PTL! :) God is indeed good. His parents were speechless!

Ah well, back to very humid Singapore...
