Chinese Garden, Darling Harbour.
Yesterday was quite a tiring day for me..I guess it's because i havent travelled/walked that much since..well..since! hu2..that shows how many FEW times i've enjoyed myself OUT there..anyways..the day started around 7.05am (thats when i woke up, took my shower, had my breakie,etc).. and we (izan, fiza, fiza's visiting friends from Japan, darina and the gang, and daniel) took the 9.11 am bus to the city.. arrived at Darling Harbour at 10.20am (approx)..I've been to Darling Harbour a few times before this..nothing much to see,it's after all..a port.he2..n i did take some pictures last year (and already printed,now in my album back home).anyways, we arrived at Tumbalong Park, where Mfest is held..what's Mfest? (wait..looking through my inbox to look for the info bout Mfest..he2) ok ok.. found it..here's what it said:The festival is opened to everyone, and provides visitors with the best Malaysian experience anyone can find in Australia. It showcases the BEST Malaysian food, a whole day of cultural and contemporary performances, as well as information about Malaysia. So, what's on this year @ MFest?

The food was indeed better than last year's.. i bought Nasi lemak with chicken curry for $8, that's rm24 just for nasi lemak dan kari ayam..but hey, I AM SATISFIED. (so dont tell me that i'm crazy to buy such expensive food, coz it's MY MONEY,MY TUMMY!!!!!i've bought wanton noodles for $13 a bowl..so DONT U DARE criticize me on how i spend my money, coz it's MINE,not yours..what do YOU know about buying Asian food in Australia?!!!)..hmm..i'm so emotional rite now coz i'm still pissed off by the stupid mistake just now.. (u know, the finished blog, gone just like that..) damn. anyways, cut the story short (and FCUK you who dare to comment on my poor english. u're not an orang putih yourself. u're an ORANGUTAN!)..izan and i joined the other audience on the field..we sat on the grass and enjoyed the performances while eating our food.. *wink* this year's Mfest is different than last year's coz it's more happening, most probably coz of the weather.. previous years, the weather hadnt been friendly or helpful to the Mfest event..it was always raining, and really2 windy during Mfest.but not this year..he2..what a great experience for our last Mfest in Sydney.. :)With the crowd..
Izan and i left Mfest around 1 pm, and spent the rest of the afternoon window shopping at QVB..(SES, Supre`, Perfume Shop-uuuu..!!Glow Pink's scent is sooooooooooo nice!!waaa..!!i really2 love it..!no more estee lauder!! it's gonna be Glow Pink now!hehe)..
After spending almost two hours in QVB, we ended up at Pitt Street (Deja Vu of being in Brisbane few months back! the whole environment was exactly like what i experienced in Brisbane!the street, shops, stree performances, etc..!) .. Somehow later we ended up at Hyde Park.. heh..Izan had been telling me about this "garden"/"park" that she'd been to. It's a large park, etc..but she never mentioned the name of the park to me.If she'd mentioned it to me, i could've known what park she was talking about.. coz most of my "friends" had been there!he2!anyways, only when we were there and saw the sign that said "HYDE PARK" then only we know that we're "there". well, i didnt take pics there..just one in front of a Cathedral (cant remember what's the name)..
and we took a rest for almost an hour sitting on the grass..such a great weather..we felt so relaxed at that time as we've been walking for 6 hours!hu2..!
We then got back to QVB, took the bus to Macquarie Uni (we went to the library first before going back home to surf the internet).. and got back around 6.20 pm..tired..but satisfied.. =D it was a really2 great day @ the city with izan.. :) hehe..i really2 had fun, and felt relaxed.. *wink* and i'm definitely gonna come back (for my GLow Pink!!!!)..hueheueu..!! =D =D
