hi slinky,
ganda ng shots mo... esp from the sydney tower.. hehehe.. di pa ako naka punta doon eh :p
ayos diba.. you don't need a CPL to get blue skies. 

the bridge's name is Anzac Bridge... :) 

sayang salisi tayo... ako naman nasa manila :p sana na contact mo other sydney-siders prior to the trip..  but i am sure 4 days was hectic.

cheers!

hi elmer! :)  thank you  ;D  we had one free day to roam around.  went to the malls lang and naka-abot kami sa parramatta.. ang haba ng train ride ha.  oo nga nagkasalisi tayo hehe.  was meaning to ask who was in sydney kaso nahiya ako.  haha.  i want to go back next year.  sarap ng weather pag winter and spring.  haay.  you're so blessed to stay there  ;D

rache,
kainis talaga ang mga langaw when the weather gets hot... wala kang kawala.... your only thing is wala naman garbage areas where they 'eat' hahaha.  talaga lang marami. :D 

spring or fall yung gusto ko... longer days.. hehehe.. pag winter kasi 4pm pa lang wala ng araw. 
Title: Re: Touring Sydney
Post by: slinky67 on November 20, 2007, 04:10:37 PM
elmer, ang linis kasi sa kalsada kaya sa tao ang punta ng mga langaw. haha.  so i guess may advantage din pala sa pinas.  hehehe. 

.. btw, na-shock ako sa bondi beach  :o  ibang klase!  ganun pala doon.  haha.  sexytimes haven.
