Tour and See the World: Short Series on Sydney, Australia, part 2

Tour and See the World: Short Series on Sydney, Australia, part 2

Welcome to part two of the short series on my travel site, on Sydney, Australia! If you wish to see the previous post on Sydney, Australia, here is the link: Short Series on Sydney, part 1. Special thanks once again to bb :) who has sent me these nice pictures of Sydney during her holiday with her family members there. Without further ado, here are more interesting pictures of Sydney!

Well, I am pretty sure that the above two pictures were taken in Sydney's Chinatown... fairly certain about that! The first one says Tai Yuen Cafe and the second one is translated as "Understand Virtue and Trust" in English. I also remember that when I was in Manchester, on the very first day of my student exchange we all trooped down to Chinatown to have a Chinese buffet, which we all loved very much! I guess that's what some of us buffet-loving Chinese Singaporeans do when we are on holiday.

And that brings me to the end of this short, two part series on Sydney, Australia. I am going to visit Australia soon also to visit my uncle, and will be taking lots of photos so that I can share them with you on this travel site. Thanks for staying here with me, and cheers! More exciting pictures to come on Tour and See the World!

Hello I'm back! Special thanks to my dear bb :) , who contributed this short picture series to my travel site Tour and See the World - on Sydney, Australia! I think my travel blog, while very simple & primitive and not quite as high-tech or developed as other famous people's travel sites, like Eunice Khong from Travelerfolio, is quite nice and cosy... and if I may say so, sweet.

Nice friends of mine write in occasionally and some of them (like bb :) ) contribute photos of interesting places that they have visited. I will be visiting my uncle, who lives in Australia, in June. So in June, I will be first flying to Australia and then to South Korea. Don't worry dear readers - I will bring my camera and take lots of nice photos to share them with you! Yes, more photos or interesting places to come. And without further ado - my short series on Sydney, Australia. There is no commentary as I wasn't the one there; this series is contributed by the sweet bb :) Thank you!

Thanks for reading and cheers! A second part to the short series on Sydney, Australia, will follow in the next post here on Tour and See the World. Thanks for staying here with me.

Tour and see the world with bb :)

Tour and See the World: Japan, part 13 - Japanese Vending Machines!

Tour and See the World: Japan, part 13 - Japanese Vending Machines!

Here is the last instalment to my Japan trip! Alright, admittedly this last part to the series wasn't some very exciting part of my travels, but about ... vending machines in Japan! And oh, a very cute baby I met at Disneysea while at that theme park. OK, here goes:

Here is a cute Japanese baby asking for donations at Disneysea. Just kidding. This kid, like me, was also a tourist visiting Disneysea.

And now here come the most ubiqitous feature in Japan. When you visit, the first thing that strikes you in Japan is... the predominance of the vending machine!!!

The Japanese are also big on recyling too... and here are more vending machines from Japan, the land of vending machines (and the land of the rising sun).

Even in the mountains - I kid you not - there are vending machines! This one is from a temple in Nara I believe. Amazing! There are vending machines everywhere in Japan.

I hope you've enjoyed my series on Japan and the various places and sights and sounds I experienced while I was there. Thanks for reading my travel blog and cheers!

Tour and See the World: Japan, part 12 - Disneysea!

Tour and See the World: Japan, part 12 - Disneysea!

There are so many things to post on my travel blog, so here goes: my first instalment in a long time, a really long long while! I first visited Japan in 2005, and then visited it again last year in May (was it May? I think so) during Mavis' "glad trip" to Japan. I am glad I went on that glad trip, because it was the first time that I had been to Disneysea, Japan. I visited Disneyland in 2005 and it was a real blast, and this time I visited Disneysea, the other theme park at the same site!

To add to the mood, when we visited it, it was raining - I kid you not! But the Japanese all went there in the rain anyways, and so we did. That's the spirit - and that's the correct atmosphere. Disneysea and "Disneyrain" :) Without further ado, here come the first set of pictures from Tokyo's Disneysea:

Here's a funny looking Japanese man standing behind the famous Disney logo/motif/ mascot/ icon Mickey Mouse! Cute.

The theme from Arabian nights - the one and only famous Aladdin, from Disney.

Mavis and I went for this one, and the puffer fish went round and round we got really disney - I mean really dizzy! :)
You can see Terror Towers in the background here at Disneysea in the picture above.
In an interesting imitation of Ninja Warrior, stay tuned for ...

More pictures, more action, more places to visit in Japan and more places elsewhere as well, and more tours and visits around the world!

(How's that for an advertisement for my travel site with a bang!)
I will be back, and soon! Thanks for visiting.
