Aussie Day 4 – Bondi Beach!

It’s beach day today and we were lucky to be blessed with good weather + blue sky again~! 😀 Morning view from my room’s window!

Got the whole bed to myself after Mommeyyyy left quietly for her flight, because she didn’t wanna wake anyone up. Still managed to drag myself up to hug her goodbye before she left! Can’t wait to reunite with her in Gold Coast! (:

Headed out after our usual breakfast and it was quite a sunny day! Thought I could do without jacket but it’s still a bit chilly for me 😅 It was really quite warm at the beach though, and I think we had the perfect weather! A bit of sun, a bit of wind, a bit of clouds…hehe!

Took the train down to Bondi Junction before catching a bus from there! 😀

Spotted a fast food chain that looks very much like our Burger King, and I think it really is! But they call it Hungry Jack’s there 😅

And here we are, at the famous Bondi Beach! When we talk about beaches in Sydney, this is definitely the one that people will mention~ Just look at the blue sea with the blue sky! Isn’t it such a beauty? 😍

It’s really nothing close to our East Coast Park at all and this is why I love to visit the beaches in overseas~ So beautiful that we couldn’t stop snapping away 😀

Wefie time~!

Lots of LOVE!!! Hehe!

It was such a sunny day that we could hardly open our eyes! But it’s really the perfect weather for beaches~

Transformed into a sunshine girl! 😂

Looking tourist-sy here~

And then we started doing plenty of jump shots, over and over again! Thank goodness it was on grass patch, which is softer, so it doesn’t hurt your feet when landing. But still, doing a jump shot with too many people is just not easy!!! So hard to synchronise!

Leng Leng looks like she’s being washed off by some sea waves here! xD

Next team to try! Much better timing this time round because we don’t have Miss Kelly, who does jump shots like she’s doing ballet 😑

Now the YOLO solo jump shot! 😀

And this is the hilarious moment when the bird decided to “jump” together with me!
 photo 20160904_120542_013_zpsydhfwpqi.jpg

It looks quite obscene to have a bird right below me, but it was actually behind me and the amazing thing is we really jumped/flew at the same timing!!! So bird does more accurate jump shots than human beings 😝

Guess what are we doing, surrounding Mr Chan?! 😆

Ta-duh~! Inspired by the reflection shot we took 4 years ago, Lyn suggested that we try it again! Hahaha!

Heading down to the beach~! Really such a beautiful beach!!!

Everyone commented that I look super lack of sleep because my dark eye circles are very obvious 😑 In other words, I just look extra cui on this day~ I admit that I had not been sleeping enough for the past few nights, but I think I will be having very good sleep soon with the big bed to myself! Haha!

Made with LOVE!

We love the blue sky!!!

As usual, the super cartoon Lyn was trying hard to get her heart-shape right – freezing there with her half-heart so that she would not screw up the shape 😂

Tried yoga on the beach but look who’s tilting to the left 😂

And who’s tilting to the right now…hahaha!
 photo IMG_0340_zps9liopsid.jpg

Then who finally lost her balance! 😆
 photo IMG_0341_zpszlb3xbs7.jpg

Finally a decent shot! Hahaha!

Sand shots as inspired by Mr Chan!

But these let-go-of-sand shots were purely my own inspiration 😛 Love the fineness of the sand there!

Took some nice shots for Mr Chan too! This one looks like he’s carrying the surfboard, got beach boy feel! 😁

Wish we had brought our bikinis to suntan a bit or have a picnic here! Thought it would be too cold for that~

Couldn’t join them at the sea area nor barefooted because I was wearing stocking~ So I could only help them take photos from a distance instead (:

Hello blue sky~!

There were a lot of people surfing because the waves were strong enough.

Even has got people jogging in bikini 😶

The hot couple! xD

 photo 20160904_132713_zpswr3j9ztp.jpg

After a boob job…LOL!

Meals are always a headache~ Some wanna eat this some wanna eat that. Here has got food for all and here doesn’t. Here too expensive there too little choices. Oh well, I’m glad we found something for everyone in the end!
 photo 20160904_140417_zpsnsvgq9yr.jpg

Again, I was not hungry (I really think I can just survive on breakfast everyday~) and I wanted something small. Got attracted by the chicken wrap at the counter so I dropped the idea of the kids’ meal! In the end, the wrap was still kinda too big 😐

Yeah! Enjoying the relaxing beach!

 photo IMG-20160905-WA0025_zpsa6c8k9s6.jpg

Happiest moment for everyone (except me) – MEAL TIME! Haha!

Off to the next destination which we missed on Day 1 because we didn’t had enough time to go~ Glad that we managed to cover more or less everything in the itinerary eventually! 😀 Back to the Central station once again~!

With the arrival of Lyn and Kelly, there is bound to be group wefie! Hahaha! But this time missing of Ah Gong Eric because he was constantly rushing us in order to cover more places 😅

Ah Gong is back!

Mr Very-Serious-Photographer xD

And despite rushing us, Ah Gong still couldn’t help but snapped some photos of the railway track 😓 So all of us snapped too! Hahaha!

Buildings near Central station

We passed by this Market City Mall which I later discovered that it’s also in our itinerary, but we did not have time to visit because the Paddy’s Market is the priority~

Reminds me of somewhere in SG…hmmmmm

Arrived at Paddy’s Market! As you can see (in the background), the eager Ah Gong has already rushed in again while we were still wefie-ing away 😐

After the previous day‘s Paddington Market and The Rocks weekend market’s experience, I had little faith that we would buy anything at the Paddy’s Market as well. I thought it would be mainly expensive handmade items again, but I just wanted to take a look since it’s a recommended place~

It turned out that the Paddy’s Market is exactly the kind of market I was looking for! The kind that sells cheap clothes and etc like I had been hoping all the markets would be like! Was so busy shopping that I did not take any picture inside~ This was koped from Kelly’s Facebook 😅
14361438_10154606677517664_6110711042054010911_o

A pity we only had like 1 hour inside because it closes at 6pm~ But at least I finally got something for myself!!! We each bought a jacket there which we would feature on day 5’s post, so stay tuned! 😛

Anyway, I really wished we had more time inside the market because by the time we finished getting the jackets, all the shops were starting to close 😦 Did not have time to go back to get the cute pajamas suit too~

By the time we were finally done with our shopping, poor Karen and Ronald were already waiting outside for us, freezing in the cold! And Ah Gong Eric has also went off to the Opera House by himself, because he wanted to catch the view before the sunset 😐 I think he was still a tad too late because the sun really sets very early in Aussie!

Yea so we only managed to catch the night scene by the time we arrived~ Makes it a bit hard for photography, but still managed to capture some decent shots luh 😅

Sydney Harbour Bridge first!

Life goal – to dine in the romantic restaurant at the Opera House at least once in my life 😂 So beautiful inside! I really wonder if there’s minimum spending of like 100 per pax…hmmmm.

Can only selfie outside for now~ But I will be back! 😛

Attempted to find food for Mr Chan but to no avail~ Thank god for cup noodle though! This time I ain’t disagreeing on it because beggar really can’t be chooser 😅 So tired after being a whole day out, but guess what Tiff and I are still doing at midnight???

Preparing everyone’s lunch for our Blue Mountain the next day! Dreading to wake up in a few hours’ time 😧 Less than 5 hours of sleep left! Nevertheless, it has been a happy beach day! Hehe!
