Sunday


View Sydney ... To the Beach & Flight to Australia on LaurenLolz's travel map.

I wake up this morning get ready, walk downstairs to get my free cereal, and I had a text from Mats that said, KC was cooking them more food, before he had to return to Canberra. (He is a private chef for a Malaysian ambassador, and can cook his ass off for 72 hours straight). They are over at my hostel, and he's cooking noodles, that he made by hand with flour and water and butter, and poached eggs. So we got crispy noodles (kinda like hash brown texture) and eggs. OMG!!! Sooooo good, and he was done with everything like 5 mins, before he had to go get on the train and head back. He is insane at cooking. He said he will be back in Sydney this weekend, so Lucas and Mats are like .. awesome we have a personal 5 star Asian chef! I just have to say. This is why I travel. This was such an Anthony Bourdain/Iron/Top Chef moment. This was effing awesome!

So after breakfast/lunch, we headed back to Paddy's Market to walk around, then hopped on the Monarail, just to ride around. We ended up getting off at Darling Harbour, to go check out the IMAX. So we walked over the bridge, and dun dun dun... PICTURESSS!!!! (Only, I'm an ass and didn't have my camera) You'll see, if you check back next week. Darling Harbour, nice little harbour, some dude with a huge ass bubble maker, and you can YouTube digoridoo and you'll see what I mean. These guys just sitting and playing the thing to a cool beat, and another guy in aboriginal dress keepin' the beat! Touristy? Yes? Cool? Yes? So we went to check out the times of the Imax and decided on Deep Sea 3D, which didn't start for an hour or so, so we grabbed a bit to eat just around the corner. Darling Harbour, really is darling. A nice little green area of Sydney near the water, palm trees and waterfalls backed by the skyline of Sydney (Sydney Tower included). For those that are familiar, think Bayfront, Miami, or Bicentennial Park, Miami. Your on the water, surrounded be green, and the city in the background. Lovely. Imax time. Deep Sea was pretty cool, you just a short little movie, narrated my Jhonny Depp and Kate Winslet. Then headed back to the hostel, we caught the bus. Yea, it was warm today. I say warm, because I am from Florida, and I know hot, and it was not HOT. So We got back and hit the pool for a bit. By the time I got back to my room, it was 8. Now an hour and half later, tired.. as I mentioned. And I have to be up early to go surfing. The bus leaves at 730, so I need to check out like 7-715, and get up at what 615-630 or so. So, I'm going to make a sandwhich, and read till I pass out. MORE TO COME! And mom, I found a place to stay till the 10th, and hopefully I should be working the 9th.
