Sydney Day-1 (part I)

Arrived 08:35am Sunday morning at Sydney domestic airport. Thank God for a comfortable safe flight 🙂 From far i could spotted Ivy sitting there with the bus tickets all ready! 🙂 So happy to see her again! 🙂

Thank God for the weather was just nice and breezy. Mr. Sun was playing hide & seek with the cloud sisters. It was a beautiful day to walk about in Sydney.

Then, we took a bus back to Ivy’s place in Kingsford. Dropped luggage, had Ivy’s homecooked banana cake for breakfast. It was really yummilicious~

After the good healthy breakfast, we were all ready for an adventurous day in Sydney~

Took a bus to city. Sydney’s frequent bus services saved us from waiting long. The bus comes every 3-5 minutes, very convenient.

Stopped at Town Hall Station. The historical building is just beautiful~

Then, we walked to Paddy’s Market, passing by Chinatown.

To me, it’s like ‘pasar malam’ in Malaysia…hehe 😀
So, we didn’t stay there long…moving on to Queen Victoria’s Building (QVB)

Again…the historical QVB is also a beautiful piece of architecture.

Most of the shops are selling branded fashion designers clothing etc. The atmosphere was nice with the lightings and vintage-style architecture designs.

The entire tree was decorated with Swarovski Crystals…that explained why the tall glass fencing around the tree.
Next, we headed off to Art Gallery of NSW…weee~
