Sensational Sydney X Nostalgic Newcastle (I)

Hey guys, how’s it going? :>

Ahhh, it’s so hot back in sunny SG that I miss Sydney so much alrd :<
The skies are so much bluer there, the breeze, the trees, oh those beaches and the waves. 


Departure night

Kinda departed with a heavy heart,
don’t really like leaving things behind.
Although I know no one is indispensable,
but I still fear that during my absence, something bad happens and I can’t be around to do anything. 
What a helpless feeling :/

But I had to say a temporary goodbye.

My lepak attire for the flight
The flight was about 7 hours long overnight. 

I sat beside a Vietnamese man who thought that I was Vietnamese too. 
WHY? WHY? WHY?
Previously on the mrt, this auntie also asked me if I’m from Myanmar. 
Don’t I look chinese enough? Meh. 

The flight was really bad, 
was fighting my period cramps the whole night. 
Super awful :<

But at least, I recovered by morning.
Amanda is strong *flex non existent muscles* HAHHA


Day Uno


Picture

Checked into Mercure Sydney Hotel!

Picture

Stairs in my suite! HAHAH kidding, this was in the lobby.
We checked in and felt really hungry so we headed out for some food!

Picture

Old looking building just outside the hotel

Picture

Couldn’t help but stop to take OOTDs

Picture

Love my sister’s knitted vest thingy
The hotel is smack in the city.
With University of Technology and University of Sydney just down the road, 
the place was buzzing with students and full of life.

Lots of sushi places around to fill the tummies of hungry students 


Picture

Reminds me of Aussie Roll at Chevron house back in SG. If you like Sushi Hub’s FB page, you get one roll free. SO GOOD RIGHT

Picture

Blue skies and majestic clock tower, lovin all the old architecture!
We took a bus to get to the Sydney Harbour, 
transport is quite exp in the city. 
One trip easily costs you 3.80 AUD.

Passed by a lovely lil park otw

It was just a short walk, 
the harbour is located at Circular Quay, which has a railway station!

Someone please buy me flowers
IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TO SYDNEY,

Lookin’ more and more alike
After all the gawking, 
we decided to train back to our hotel area to have dinner.

Our hotel is really near The Central Station.

Understand that shops close really early in the evening,
but thankfully we managed to find a lil vietnamese shop to fill our tummies.

A nice hot bowl of beef noodles with soup :>

Makannnnnn~
In Australia, you learn to take it slow. 
There isn’t much to do at night unless you go drinking or clubbing. 

We ended the day with a trip to the supermarket, we just love Australian supermarkets. 
So much variety and S P A C E to run around.


Day Dos

We woke up bright and early to go on a day tour to the Blue Mountains!

The first stop was actually a Aboriginal Centre, where we learnt more about their culture; their dance and their music.

Then we headed to Scenic World


Picture

At Scenic world, there are basically 3 rides that you can take. It will bring you into the valley where you can be one with nature :>

Picture

Skyway, here we come!

Totally feeling the height

I believe that’s where we came from.
We headed for our next ride, hohoho

We took a leisure valley walk, 
enjoying the cool weather, 
eating apples and snacks, 
talking about our lives.

Just wanna lay and watch the clouds pass by
The bus brought us to an area with shophouses for lunch!
Love love shophouses.

Autumn leavesssss
We explored a little, 
had cheap fish and chips at a takeaway shop run by chinese, 
and peeked into the chocolatier stalls.

To finish off the day, 
we cruised back to the city!
Just in time for sunset views *heartshaped eyes*

Yatches and the high life.
Upon reaching the city, we headed to the Central, which was a mall near the hotel.
