Day 2 – Silicon Valley~

 Last updated: 1st October, 2016, 3:56 AM Silicon Valley… If you are in IT, it’s recommended to drive around here… Although the only building where we could physically enter was the Intel Museum, we still had fun! Point to note: Do NOT go during weekends because the Google merchandise store is closed… Thereafter, we headed to … Continue reading Day 2 – Silicon Valley~

My take on Sydney~

 Last updated: 19th February, 2015, 8:16 PM Sydney is commonly mistaken by many as the capital city of Australia. I’m guilty of that when I was young. Our initial plan was to go to Germany and BeNeLux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg) but apparently serving the country took precedence for hubby hence we have to “discount” our year-end trip … Continue reading My take on Sydney~

Day 7 – Featherdale Wildlife Park | Shopping at Paddy’s Market

 Last updated: 19th February, 2015, 8:15 PM Hellooooo koalas! I went to Perth twice and both times I didn’t get to see any koalas, even at the zoo. How silly! When I went to Gold Coast, not only I got to see lots of koalas, I even got to carry one! Thank you Risa Aris once … Continue reading Day 7 – Featherdale Wildlife Park | Shopping at Paddy’s Market

Day 6 – SEA Life Sydney Aquarium | Sydney Tower Eye | Madame Tussauds Sydney

 Last updated: 13th February, 2015, 6:48 AM Sydney town. It’s weird that we toured this vibrant city on the 6th day. Weird but smart! We wanted to avoid the crowd so it’s much better to visit the attractions on a weekday. 1st stop: SEA Life Sydney Aquarium. I haven’t been to S.E.A. Aquarium in Resorts World … Continue reading Day 6 – SEA Life Sydney Aquarium | Sydney Tower Eye | Madame Tussauds Sydney

Day 5 – Jervis Bay | Kiama Blowhole

 Last updated: 29th January, 2015, 2:47 PM Today will be another long drive. Jervis Bay is about 3 hours drive from our home so everyone’s making themselves comfortable in the van. The drive to Jervis Bay surprisingly was not mundane. My eyes were on the road but I stole several glances of the rivers whenever I … Continue reading Day 5 – Jervis Bay | Kiama Blowhole

Day 4 – Sydney Skydive

 Last updated: 28th January, 2015, 6:28 PM Happy birthday to me… Happy birthday to me… Happy birthday to me… Happy birthday to me… Talking about shameless in a whole new level. Well I’m super-duper excited because hubby gave me the best birthday present ever! Skydiving baby!!! Yeah!!! It’s our first skydiving experience and we’re extremely thrilled. … Continue reading Day 4 – Sydney Skydive

Day 3 – The Scenic World Blue Mountains

 Last updated: 11th February, 2015, 8:47 AM Rise and shine! We had to leave early because Blue Mountains is about 1½ hours away from our home. We packed tuna sandwiches and anchovies fritters in case we cannot find any halal foods. For the kids, it will be butter sandwiches instead just in case tuna might be … Continue reading Day 3 – The Scenic World Blue Mountains

Day 2 – Shopping at Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre & Direct Factory Outlet (Homebush)

 Last updated: 28th January, 2015, 5:49 PM Good morning mate! It was warm and sunny outside. Certainly brought smiles to many faces especially the ladies. Only the ladies I must say because even the kids dislike the idea. Well, wait until they grow up and we’ll see whose side they’re on. Hmph! Based on my research, … Continue reading Day 2 – Shopping at Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre & Direct Factory Outlet (Homebush)

Day 1 – Sydney Opera House | Sydney Harbour Bridge

 Last updated: 28th January, 2015, 5:42 PM Thank goodness I’m smart enough not to squeeze in any hectic sightseeing on the arrival day. Everyone was so lethargic, unsure whether it’s jetlag or insufficient of sleep. We aimed to reach the house around noon but got delayed. It was not because of purchasing the prepaid SIM card … Continue reading Day 1 – Sydney Opera House | Sydney Harbour Bridge

My take on Phuket~

 Last updated: 28th January, 2015, 5:24 PM I’d always wanted to go to Phuket but hubby always said NO because we’d been to Thailand already. Let’s face it we’d only been to Bangkok but he’d rather go to other countries instead. He felt that having been to 1 city of a country was enough. Move on … Continue reading My take on Phuket~
