6 Ways to Enjoy Your Stay in Sydney!

Sydney, Australia

I have visited Sydney for 6 times in the last five months. Just in the month of November, I went there for 3 times! Even though it was a short stay on my each visit, it gets boring to see the same place and eat the same food again, again and again. I know I will dread coming to this place if I do not find ways to enjoy myself.

So…I have come up with a compilation of ways to enjoy my stay and here goes.. 😉

1. EAT PANCAKES!!

YUM YUM!! I love pancakes! If you are a pancake lover, you got to visit this restaurant named ‘Pancakes on The Rocks‘ when you are in Sydney! They serve the BEST pancakes in the world!

I had tried the pancakes for 4 times out of my 6 visits to Sydney. The two outlets that I have been to are located in Darling Harbor and The Rocks (24 Hours) which is near to Harbor Bridge.

I heard a good place to eat pancakes in Singapore is Strictly Pancakes which is in Dhoby Ghaut area. Gonna try it soon! Heehee..

2. POSE STUPIDLY WITH OPERA HOUSE 

Hehehe…I am so strong!

Trying to show that I am bigger than the Opera House but failed terribly. Lol! -.-

I JUMP~ but block the Opera House. Epic fail!

This is the result of coming to the same place for so many times and you start to get a little crazy and crappy. Lol!

3. VISIT BLUE MOUNTAINS

The Blues Mountains is a mountainous region in New South Wales and you can take a 2 hours train ride from Sydney Central Station and alight at Katoomba. The weather was really bad and all we can see is mist and rain! Kena con by hotel’s concierge again cos he told us the weather was only going to be cloudy.

You can buy the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus ticket from any CityRail Station in Sydney. It costs about AUD45 for the return train ride and bus ride around Blue Mountains. The hop-on hop-off bus will stop at 29 stops around Leura and Kamtooba.

Inside the Skyway. I am very scared of heights and I cannot cross an overhead bridge alone. However, the skyway ride wasn’t scary to me at all cos it was so misty and I can’t see anything below/around me at all.

The Railway, which is the steepest passenger railway in the world. Very fun but the ride was too short.

We were supposed to see all of these and not just mist and rain! Blue Mountains is so beautiful and it is also listed as one of UNESCO World Heritage Site. I will definitely come back again!

4. SEE CUTE KIDS!! 😀

Children are so cute and they always give you the biggest smile in the world. You can be yourself in their world. No pretense. No faking. No wayang. Life is just so simple with them. 😉

Fatherly love. Awww..

Handsome boy! Love the hair and eyes!

A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement.  It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.  ~Rachel Carson

Let’s all be great man who does not lose our child’s heart and treat every fellow human beings with compassion and respect. 😉

5. CHILLING OUT

What is nicer than spending a lovely afternoon sitting by the bay and having a nice chilled beer? 🙂

We had Beez Neez, a specialty honey wheat beer. It is an amazingly smooth beer with nice honey taste and not overpowering at all. I like to try the different kinds of beer around the world and some of my favorites include Corona, Kirin and Pure Blonde.

Chill out @ Opera Bar..

You can also enjoy the view of Harbor Bridge and birds flying around the bay from the bar.

    Yep – don’t forget the Newport up on the Northern Beaches! Grab an Airbnb and stay up their for the night! Cushie properties are generally good – Clean, well maintained and positioned (You can check out their properties online https://www.cushie.com) . No visit to Sydney is complete without seeing the beaches up north.
