Sydney in a flash

I visited Sydney, the beautiful energetic city within 24 hours! I arrived at midnight last Wed and spent the whole Thursday morning at a conference. By lunch time & after my presentation finished, I quietly sneaked out and took a walk along Darling Harbor and the famous Opera House. It was a brilliant sunny day and everything was just perfect! I did manage to take some pictures although it was so hard to walk wearing business skirt and high heel shoes. Not to mention the heavy conference bag that I carried. I wished I had worn a light summer dress and walked around in my sandals -young and free…

I left Sydney around 7 pm Thurs. But before leaving, I caught a taxi to have a light lunch at Bills Café which was owned by famous Australian Chef Bill Granger. Bill is one of my fav chef, and I really wanted to try out his café. I ordered linguine with grilled squid and prawn. True to be told I was a bit disappointed. The pasta was a bit salty and the flavor was nothing special. Perhaps I should have come earlier and tried out the famous breakfast menu instead? (Pics of ice-cream and pastry are from some shops in Darling Harbour)

Anyway, back to my beloved greeny suburban Melbourne, I was delighted to see that the Menu for Hope III has raised $19,438.00! Thanks to everyone who has kindly donated!

I will be back with more cooking in the coming weeks since my holiday has started!
