Still Summer in Sydney

Arrived Sydney last Sunday morning. So a couple of friends picked me up for lunch. We went to this yum cha kind of place. Waiters walk around the restaurant each holding different food or dish and if we see something we like to eat, we just call the waiter. I had a chance to try the "fried ice cream" for the first time which was the highlight of the meal.

A little later, taking advantage of a Sunday afternoon, we went to some sailing clubs right by the river connecting to Botany Bay. Just enjoying the view and weather. Earlier that day was warm but in the late afternoon it became cool as the winds coming from the south rushed in.

Come Monday, I spent the morning in the city. Took the train going to Central Station then walked to Town Hall along Pitt Street where I noticed this music store:

Lovely as I recalled. Then I passed by my favorite bookstore, Kinokuniya in George Street. And was able to pick up a Macross art book. Hahaha!.... That evening, I've decide to eat the Aussie pizza just across the street from where I stayed. Cooked in wood fire, the flavor is called the Aussie because it had egg and bacon as toppings. Hmmm...

The Third day, Tuesday, I took the 20-minute walk to Rockdale Plaza from where I was staying just to have a sandwhich. It was good excercise just like the previous day. Half way back to the hotel, this dog walked beside me as if I'm its owner. I was getting worried that it might follow me all the way to the hotel...
