Friends, travel, food. What else could be the happiest thing that I’ve done throughout my spring break this year? At first I thought my spring break was not gonna be as lit as my previous breaks when I was still in high school. But who knew that my spring break this year was one of the remarkable breaks I’ve ever had (away from family)? When I first heard that my housemates’ friends were coming from Melbourne and Brisbane and stay at our place for the break, I thought I was doomed. Ah, another awkward ‘hi, hello’ thing again. And of course I was feeling a little bit anxious because I was worried that I might not be able to break the ice. I was worried that they might not be as crazy as I am because I can seriously get out of hand if I’m excited lol. Plus, I was just about to get closer to my new housemates. Yikes.
Ah as expected, it was awkward ‘hi, hello’ when I first met them but that didn’t last long. Hours past and viola ~ Right after I got back from the Malaysian Ball, all 10 girls in the house got along with each other. We talked and we laughed for hours past our bed time forgetting the itinerary that we had for the next day; and the journey started then.
The next morning, EVERYONE was late. E V E R Y O N E. Boys, girls, all of us were rushing. We were supposed to meet at Central Station by 730AM but our schedule was delayed about an hour. Not guilty because it was pretty early for us. During the 2-3 hours train to Blue Mountains, the girls went back to sleep but I wasn’t sure about the guys. Probably they were not sleeping throughout the whole journey since I heard them talking the whole time. Upon our arrival, we got off the carriage like goats getting released to eat grass at a field. To express the greatness of our trip to Blue Mountains, the one day trip was worth it though I pretty much gambled the trip because money was such a huge pain in an ass. It was the end of the month, and I was broke and the money that my dad wired in was taking forever to get into my bank account. But fun is fun. No regret.
Long story, short:
Day 1: Blue Mountain + Time for Thai for dinner after we got back from Blue Mountains. Got home around 10-11 PM ish, stalked each others’ Facebook, commented on old pictures. Probably the highlight of our break.
Day 2: Sydney sightseeing. First, we went to Chinese Garden of Friendship and took lots of royalty pictures. HAHAH. Then, we took a ferry, passed the harbour bridge, went to Opera house, the usual tourist trip y’know. Lots of pictures and lots of love. Then we had dinner at Pancake on Rocks, and they made the best pancake I’ve ever tasted in my 20 years life. It was bomb dot com. Btw, it is recommended. A must try! hehe
Day 3: Bondi to Cooge coastal walk. A lot of walking. A L O T. And a lot of stopping for pictures too. Honestly I couldn’t remember what and where we ate for dinner. Probably it was Time for Thai again but, didn’t skip dinner fosho.

Day 4: Souvenirs stop and we went to Paddy’s Market, a very well-known hotspot for cheap souvenirs. After that we went for ice skating cuz it was free but we sucked at it. Still no regrets.
