If u were to ask, this is impromptu trip. When AA did the zero fare sales, we already decided not to buy anything except for one trip to KK and my girls trip. But on the day AA launched it Sydney route, I was just toying around and OMG the offer is just too hard to say NO. The rest is history. And at the very last minute, I had my brother tagging along with us on board so there u go, extra people to help us with the kids too :)
The flight was at 1145 pm. the whole journey was ok. Khazin was sleeping all the way but Khilfi took some time to eat, read his book before he could settle down. When we reached Sydney it was about 945am local time. Sydney is 2 hours ahead of Malaysia time during our trip and it was the start of winter. Temperature on daily basis ranging from 13-16degree day time and by night time it dropped to 8-10degree if i am not mistaken. It was windy sometimes but the weather was still very much perfect for us to explore in and about.
So day 1 kick off straight away. Since the room is not ready yet, we just pop to the nearby kebab shop and had brunch. It just next to our hotel and only opposite the World Square. After the brunch, we straight away walked to Darling Harbour. About 5 mins walk to the place frm our hotel. Very close nearby.
So the kids had fun at the playground. Went to Paddys market and just pop in there for a while tgk2 souvenir and making mental note while the kids playing and continue overseeing them as the playground was huge and very interesting. There was a water park, sandy pit, a huge slides, flying fox, swings and many other things.
If u wanna visit some point of interest (POI) in sydney, please shop around and determine what u want. They actually offer a lot of package at cheaper rate online and especially for families. Like the Sydney Aquarium it was at 50% off for all 4 o'clock admission on the week that we went and cost me abt AUD40 if i am not mistaken for 2 adults and 2 kids to go in. Kewl kan.
So we spend like 2 hours inside and just later we walked around the Harbour again enjoying the night view. It was cold and the boys hand was freeezing. So we stop for coffee and hot choc for the boys and later back in the apartment i prepare the dinner. Menu for tonight was chicken soup, beans and carrot stir fry and also fried egg. The kids were having fun enjoying their stay and excited about tomorrow. And we settle for bed afterwards.
