a park in Sydney
yesterday i decided to go ambling before Maybelle and her friend Jasmine came for the night.
traveling around Sydney is puke-blood-inducing-ly expensive but i discovered the Sunday Family Funday ticket! it lets you take unlimited train rides at only a$2.50/day. compare that with the a$3.20 single trip ticket to the next stop!
bent st bazaar
on weekends i've been going to markets (because they usually only run on weekends).
this market is actually at a shopping block next to a cricket ground.
i was a bit confused over the bus prices but i met the kindest driver who patiently clarified all my queries and gave me a map! ah~ i'm feeling for Sydney what i never felt for Melbourne!
there wasn't much at the small market-- some lovely baby trinkets but i don't have one and my nephew Nathan's mama does her own sewing so nothing for me to buy.
decided to have Spanish for lunch-- this stall's garlic prawns look absolutely divine but i had a Mojo Roll instead (Austin Powers!! haha i love the name!) as seafood exacerbate my crappy skin condition!
ah but i should have opted for the prawns because the lady having them next to me kept praising them!
plus am not a huge fan of cured meats!
anyway my preferred markets are still Glebe Markets and Bondi Markets.
all because Glebe has this beautiful Korean tea set which i can't buy because i'm not a tea person.. but Bondi has good views-- the sea, sand.. and the boys. plus my new go-to necklace brand is there. my Belle & Peace necklace is the only item i wear more than my earrings! gosh i love Belle & Peace so much!
one of the MANY Thai restaurants in Newtown
it was great to meet fellow Malaysians after so long! (parents-- what do you mean 'so long'? it's only been less than 3 weeks!)
the charming Maybelle
gee how small her face is!
tom yum mushroom soup, a$4.90
the food was quite reasonably priced, and quite tasty too.
it was crowded and the noise was totally Malaysian--i almost had to shout to communicate with Maybs, who was seated opposite me!
the green curry was very sweet-- Westernized for the Aussies.
Jasmine knew like only a thousand eateries worth going to in Newtown.. haha by the time i finish checking them all out, i'll need to overhaul my wardrobe!
have a safe flight Maybs!
