Port Macquarie 21.11.2011

Rent a car from Hertz. They advertised Toyota Yaris or similiar. And they gave us a Holden Barino. This is for our first leg of the journey which is to Brisbane. The distance is more than 900km. This car is not economical in petrol and we practically see the petrol dropping and have to keep filling up. We stop at Port Macquarie which is a 4 hours drive for the day before continuing our journey.

The seaside is about 10mins walk from our motel. Went for a walk there and ended up at the Port Macquarie Bowling Centre for dinner. Drove around the town centre too but didn't take any picture.

Sydney 20.11.2011

Paddy's market in Sydney. Souvenirs here are the cheapest compare to all the places I went in Australia.

Buying seasonal fruits in the market. Peaches and nectarines are cheap. These are fruits that are rare in Malaysia and very expensive.

Fish market

Lunch at the fish market. Lobster and oyster are cheap and fresh. Have soft shell crab and abalone too. The abalone is expensive and not worth the price we pay for.

Sydney, 19 Nov 2011

Bondi beach. Its summer, so you can see so many people sunbathing at the beach. The sand here is really fine and dry. You can walk on it and it won't stick to your feet. Just shake and it come off easily.

Eating the famous Hurricane pork ribs. Can't get that in Malaysia.

Watch fireworks at night at Darling Harbour. Just so happen that they have fireworks display on that day.

Australia Trip

Took a six weeks leave for a trip to Australia. Its summer at the moment and will be hot. Leave KL on the 18th November night and reach Sydney on the 19th morning. My daughter who is studying there came to meet me.
