Australia Day

A bunch of us (Jem, Mey, Sam, JC, Minh, Yui and myself) decided to enjoy Australia Day this year in the wonderful city of Sydney. This was the first time in AGES that I'd been to the city during Australia day.. Didn't make it to the harbour in time for the ferry races, but it was all pretty good.

We started off in Hyde Park for lunch (pretty piss-poor lunch actually, and crowded and expensive to boot!). From there we made it down to Bungalow 8 at King St Wharf to enjoy some drinks and catch the Alicia Molik vs Lindsay Davenport match at the Aus Open.

At about 5pm someone had the idea to visit Manly, so off we went to Circular Quay and the Manly Ferry. It was a pretty cool ride, as always, with a damn fine view of the CBD and harbour.

After a little walk towards Manly Beach, we had dinner from a pretty good seafood place (the salmon was awesome!) and headed to the beach for a bit. After grabbing some ice cream and watching a brilliant sunset it was time to head back.

Met up with Quang and his entourage at Darling Harbour for the fireworks, at around and chatted a bit and headed home. It was about 12:30 am when I finally got to sleep.. I walked into work 30 minutes late (I had an 8 am start dammit!). 'Twas tres fun.
