The beach was cold. I’m in boots and pants and a hoodie but I’m still freezing. Nothing to do there, really. We just walked for a couple of minutes and took pictures. Some locals were out there swimming and sun bathing and that’s pretty much it. I didn’t even notice if the beach was beautiful because it’s incomparable to the beaches in the Philippines, haha. At least the sand is white and fine? But NOT Boracay-fine 😛
Went to a park next to get a view of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. I WAS SO SLEEPY. I couldn’t really function if I didn’t sleep. I know I sleep late most of my life but I try to sleep during the day as much as I can, too. Having zero sleep makes me a zombie, I don’t like it at all. When everyone was busy enjoying the view and having photoshoots here and there, I sat in a corner and tried to close my eyes hahaha. Good thing Nicole and Marion dragged me to walk and take more photos.
I swear it’s cold! Nicole’s wearing a crop top and Marion’s wearing a shirt but I’m there shivering in my warm clothes, haha. I think it was around 10 degrees that time?
Most of our pictures were taken by Sir Neil, so we’re thankful we have a lot of group photos. And as usual, I took care of the videos but it would probably take a while before I finish the blog. Please give me at least 60 working days hahaha.
We had lunch at a cruise and it wasn’t the best experience. I didn’t review the itinerary so I forgot to take my meds. My motion sickness really acted up and I couldn’t enjoy the view. The food wasn’t so great, too. It’s buffet but mostly vegetables and we were craving for meat. It didn’t help that my head was spinning. Luckily, one of my officemates brought some menthol to reduce the dizziness. After lunch, my officemates were out of the boat to take pictures but I had to stay inside. Puking was not an option for me that time, haha. Plus, I’d be hungry again!
Good thing we immediately checked in at the hotel so I slept for at least an hour. We showered and went out for dinner albeit a bit late. It was funny because I was so excited when they said we’ll have barbecue for dinner. I was expecting an Australian barbecue of course but surprise, it’s samgyupsal! Loooooool.
Everything tasted great because well, it’s kbbq. What do we even expect? Hahaha. Then we went to the supermarket for a bit to buy some chocolates since we had no idea if we’ll have time to shop in the next few days. Plus, I was just really tired and sleepy. Some of my friends went to the much cheaper option (I forgot the name of the store, sorry!) but I wanted nothing but sleep.
Went back to the hotel and tried to sleep but unfortunately, I couldn’t. Oh, we stayed at Holiday Inn which was supposedly one of the best ones but since it didn’t have a bidet (sigh, this is why Asia is still the best lol) I cannot say I enjoyed it very much. Haha. The room’s okay, there was no view and uh, can I just say that our stay in MovenPick was a hundred times better?
Anyway, that ends the first day of our trip! It was the most exhausting day I’ve had in a while. I feel like I need at least two months to recover, lol.
I post updates on Tiktok, too! 🙂
