Australia Day 1 - Sydney (16 October 2015, Friday)

Finally got around to sorting the crazy amount of photos we took! Took an overnight flight and landed in Sydney at about 10am. Lugged our luggages to our airbnb apartment at Bondi Beach via public transport. Our apartment was so cute! T'was a studio apartment so it was tiny but cosy. Poor Scott had to sleep on the sofa bed hahaha. Headed out for lunch at Mongers, a cafe just across the street.

After lunch we headed to the city area for touristy stuff - Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge & Luna Park. Bought the My Multi 2 pass so that we could take unlimited public transport rides throughout our 4 days in Sydney, ferry included. Settled for a jap restaurant somewhere in the city. We also bought Optus SIM cards for the 10 day trip which only cost $2 per day. Really cheap considering we get 500 MB of data each day :) You can purchase it directly from the airport.

Speaking of SIM cards, we had a mini panic attack on our way to the apartment! We had no idea how to get there but we knew we had to take a bus to Bondi Beach first. Upon boarding, Ruimin got up first and started to move in when the driver stopped Scott & I from boarding as the bus was too full. Due to Min's luggage, she couldn't alight from the crowded bus and it drove off!!

Bear in mind that our SIM cards were not activated yet and we had no means of contacting one another. Plus the next bus we boarded wasn't the same number cuz we were confused. It took a different route but thankfully we still went past Bondi Beach and just before alighting Scott saw Min waiting at a random bus stop. What an adventure on the first day!

Our SIM cards finally started working at this time so Min couldn't stop using her phone. It was so epic cuz something went wrong and our SIM cards only started working after 6 hours. When it finally activated, the 3 of us immediately formed a group hug and started running around like we won the lottery. Hahahaha.
