i would not have thought that the last day i had left in Sydney, was scheduled to be drenched in endless unforgiving showers. But never would i have thought that it was also recorded the most memorable day for me there. It was romantic and easy going – the rain slowed down our pace; giving us the benefit of time to notice the little details hidden in this beautiful city. […]

Moo Moo LooMoo

It was a night when i crave for something gritty, raw, yet cosmopolitan. Think indie cool rockers, live jazz, and . . . well, a good ol’ pint of cold beer. A scene i often thirst for yet unfortunately does not exist enough in KL. Thankfully, i know i can definitely count on Sydney to satisfy such desire. To make the night even more diverse, Moo Moo LooMoo, our generous […]

One has not been to Sydney if s/he has never witnessed the sheer beauty of UNESCO’s magnificent World Heritage Site, the Sydney Opera House – a modern expressionist design inspired by the idea of shells, built by Jørn Utzon. As i listened to its story retold by Ai Rene, who is also an architect, i was bewildered yet horrified at the same time. Initially, the project is thrown into the waste bin […]

Manly Beach

As an islander wannabe i’ve been to many beaches and this one named Manly, is certainly ‘man enough’ for me. Usually my beach vacations involve getting sticky in sun block, collecting sand in my shoes, and capturing salty sea breeze in my hair; but Manly is a gentleman. At the end of the day we left feeling like we just arrived, but with a lighter heart, clearer head – both […]

La Guaira / Bondi

After 6382 bus + 91754 train rides, we found ourselves at an almost solitary and chilly Bondi (which is supposedly famous for looking zealous with colorful bikinis and surf boards everywhere). Unfortunately, there is nothing much one can do when visiting a beach during the brink of autumn; besides musing upon own thoughts or taking countless pictures of the sea. The latter is obviously done (and someone please take off […]

Sydney the Second

Happiness, such a simple word yet so hard to achieve; So ephemeral yet eternal when undeceived; That’s the kind of happiness from Sydney i received; Or at least that’s how i want you to perceive.   {this picture exists – just because i found a Malaysian restaurant in Sydney. that’s all about it really. caption ends} {my favorite booth in the world – hypothetically speaking, who would say “NO” to […]

Diary
Sydney Fish Market

It is 4 in the morning (just like Gwen Stephanie’s song) except that my “tears are not pouring and neither am i making any worth of a fight”. What i’m doing though, is battling sleepiness. Since i arrived from Cambodia half a day ago, i’ve been trying to get some close-eye but constantly awaken by random phone calls – thank you. Though i’m dead worn out right now, i MUST […]
