Yesterday was a very eventful day. We started the day off by popping by Paddy’s markets (of course) and did some shopping. I bought a phone case and a few clothing items. We were there for quite some time. It amazes me how the different stalls charge such different prices. The phone case I bought was $10 at most stalls, $15 at one, and I managed to get it for $5 at another. So it’s important that you look around before you decide to buy something!
We had Yum Char for lunch again yesterday. Man, I have a feeling I’m going to put on some weight while I’m over here, but screw it – I’m on holiday.
We decided to go for a walk down Pitt Street to do some shopping, and we came across this street performer called ‘The Bucket Boy’. He was so awesome! Super entertaining and great at what he does. You should definitely check him out. We then went to Nespresso for a coffee, then onto Uniqlo to buy some clothes and I also stopped by H&M. That place was HUGE. It was a bit overwhelming, so I didn’t end up buying anything. I can wait to buy clothes from H&M until I get to Sweden I suppose!
We kept on walking down Pitt Street until we reached Circular Quay. For those of you who aren’t too familiar with Sydney, that’s where the Sydney Opera House is. There were so many people down that way, drinking and eating food. We had a super tasty gelato. I chose the flavours Kinder Surprise and Snickers. Yum. Had to eat it so fast though because it was really hot outside so it started melting immediately.
We had a bit of a rest in the Royal Botanical Gardens next to the Opera House before we headed back to the hotel.
For dinner, I floated the idea of having Ramen, which Jeremy was also quite keen on, so we went to a Japanese Ramen restaurant close to our hotel, Central Park. It was a really cute little area, and outside of the restaurant, they had all sorts of games set up, such as Chinese checkers, chess, ping pong, Jenga etc. We decided to play some ping pong.
It was so much fun, but I got tangled up in spider web and started to feel a bit uneasy seeing as we’re in Australia. You never know what kind of spiders are around. I felt even more uneasy when I looked over and there was a giant spider hanging from the tree next to us. Well, maybe not giant, but definitely the biggest spider I’ve seen. No idea what kind of spider it was, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so my ping pong playing was not the best, haha!
Then they started to pack the games up so we headed back to the hotel, watched some tennis on TV and then went to bed.
Time for day three!
