Sydney was fun!! And my parents came after that which was awesome as well, though I didn't get to spend as much time with them (Uni classes already started when they came).
So first, Sydney (no photos as of yet, still got to get a copy of them in Jpeg format)! It was really fun, we stayed at a holiday studio in Dee Why which was pretty far from the city but the studio was really nice and equipped with most things.
Traffic in Sydney is kinda horrible though, and Phoenix was determined to not go on toll roads, though he changed his mind soon enough, it takes like half an hour more to get into the city via the non-tolled ways. Most of the roads in the city only allows you go to straight so you have to go for a really long way before being able to turn around if you went on a wrong road (the outdated street directory given to us by the car rental didn't help much either).
ANYWAYS, other than the traffic and expenses, Sydney is a pretty cool place! Definitely more diverse and busier than Brisbane! I really liked the architecture over there cause it's a good mix of old and new style buildings.
We went to the Taronga Zoo, Sydney Aquarium, Chinatown (they have a restaurant selling a number of Taiwanese snacks and another which sold Taiwanese desserts! Both had mega long lines!), Slide Bar for a play + degustation dinner, Beulah St Wharf for a really nice view of Sydney Harbour + City (but they were selling the Wharf when I was there...), Sydney Harbour itself, Blue mountains + Scenic World and just walking around the City. There were a few other places which I don't remember the name of.
I am so not done with Sydney yet, I want to go again!!! But Phoenix vowed not to drive in the City again (parking is also really expensive) which means we will stay in the city and only drive to Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley and those sort of places. XD

More later! It's almost time for the "Peak internet quota" to be implemented, and ours had been used up so it's at 64kbps. =.="

What on Earth is wrong with some people nowadays?
Apparently flamming your own family on facebook for all to see is something to be proud of!? Using a few thousand dollars on some game is justifiable just cause you are stuck at home on probation?! What, you think using someone elses phone number to pay for it means that they won't know its you?
Are you really that naive to think that the phone bills dont let the users know what they are paying for and that you can lie your way out of trouble? Oh, I know, maybe you are using other people's phone numbers cause if they don't pay for your bill, your line gets terminated but then they can't not pay for their own bills!
Apparently your friends make better family then your parents? Yea sure, try getting them to get you out of trouble, pay for your notorious bills, buy you new laptops, computers, dslr, private school fees, clothes, food and whatever else your parents actually pay for. Go ahead, run away live with them and lets see if you change your mind.
Yes, its never good to hear your own family calling you stupid or an idiot, but have you thought about why he called you that in the first place? And apparently he can't call you that cause he hasn't been to jail nor has he stabbed anyone as you so proclaimed on Facebook? Don't worry about my friends reading this, I am pretty sure your outburst on FB has already caught their attention as most of them know you anyway. And seeing that you are so proud of the actions, you wouldnt mind right?
Do you even know how much grief you have caused mum and dad? Any idea who rings me to cry and exclaim over your matters. Its about time you learnt to appreciate whats given to you. At your age people no longer "screw their own family upside down" let alone on a public network. Grow up and stop acting like a 2 year old.
If you just so happen to see this, I am hoping maybe you will gather some kind of guilt and just stop whatever you are doing before you drive anyone to the grave. If not, then I will probably just see more exclaimations on FB, flamming on my blog and maybe even people waiting to "look for me" when I am back in Singapore!
