Morrie had just come back from her short trip in Sydney and boy oh boy, did she learning to love that city. She absolutely adore the architectures of the town,especially around Paddington and Darlinghurst area. It has that whole urban-slash-vintage quirkiness that so appeals to her. All the friendly greetings from the locals, the neighborhood parks, their spic-and-span buses, and the finger-lickin foods were some of the things she said that really made her trip memorable. And the thing that always gets her about the birds in Sydney are all these parrots and seagulls flying around loose and being all native and free. It’s unnatural!
She loved to hit the pavement and started walking, it’s one of the best ways to get around town and really become immersed in the local life. She walked up along the Oxford Street and made a pleasant walk through scenic alleyways and quiet streets lined with terraces, artists studios, boutiques, sidewalk cafes and many local bookstores up to the Hyde Park. Sydney really grabbed a hold of her heart. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Below are some of the photos that she snapped whilst being all touristy :p
Yes for more photos!

Our love of playground started way back in childhood. As kids, we would beg our parents to let us play with all of its rides to our little hearts content. So imagine our excitement when we discovered a temporary playground near our neighborhood last week.
The playground is only operated at certain month, usually when it’s on long school holiday like now and always crammed full of people of all ages. Even though all of its arcades were not the most sophisticated ones (it was operated completely by human-power, how cool is that?), it didn’t stop us from having the best fun possible!
more fun after the jump!

Continuing our trip in Bali, all 14 of us decided to visit other beaches around Uluwatu, in southern part of Bali. First, we went to Padang-Padang Beach, a beautiful but secluded beach behind the cliff. Poor us, it was packed with fellow tourists that day and within 5 minutes there, we decided to go to the other beach near in the area, Balangan Beach.
The next day, me, Morrie, and the other six guys went to Ubud, while the others snorkeled at Amed Beach. Morrie found a must-visit-place there, a small jam shop called Kou Cuisine. The place is so simple yet lovely, our upcoming post is specially dedicated to this cute shop.

Morrie loves beach so much, she always have soft spot for anything summer. Getting all excited like a kid with a cheerful smile, she could spent hours playing in the beach.
The first beach we went to is Echo Beach in Canggu, Bali. Since we didn’t bring our swimsuits, Morrie decided to walk along the beach, play with the waves and found some seashells (she picks some of them for herself), while I took some photographs (mostly of her :p).
These are the seashells Morrie collected from Echo Beach, my favorite is the spiral one, with the brown lines around it. :)
