Last weekend we visited Darling Harbour for the Craft Expo. My wife went in with her friend Giselle to the craft show while me and my little boy roam around.

Here are some photos i'd like to share.

Vivid Sydney

Vivid Sydney is a festival of light and music. Last night we went to the city to take photos of the Opera House here are some of the photos I took.

A picture of some buildings on Circular Quay.

And a picture of St. Mary's Cathedral. Too bad we were too late to go there.

Cleveland Cavaliers - Williams to The King

I've always been a fan of basketball, right now I'm rooting for the Cleveland Cavaliers. All because of LeBron James. For me he is the top NBA athlete of his generation. I think he is an all around player, he gets triple doubles which is really rare for a player who can turn on the heat and score 50 plus points a game.

I'm just sharing at the same time trying out how to embed videos on a blog and here is one of them.

An outstanding play from Mo to the King. Go CAVs for the championship.

Pepper Lunch

This is one of our favorite restaurants here in Australia. They serve beef, chicken, salmon cooked in a hot plate. All you need to do is add some sweet and garlic soy sauce and you are ready to go.

But, I've noticed this as I was paying for our orders in the counter.

Isn't this funny?

This aside, I still go back to this restaurant to enjoy now my favorite "Beef Curry". You should all try this out, I believe Pepper Lunch is also available in the Philippines in Rockwell. Here in Australia it is near Town Hall station just walk to George Street just close to Paul's Warehouse.

The Real Sydney Olympic Park

I was fortunate to again visit Sydney Olympic Park. The title says "The Real", its not that the previous post I did was not real but this time its THE Olympic Park where all the games were held back in 2000.

I went here to drop my wife on a Craft Expo, she loves craft specially scrap booking you might want to visit her blog through this link and see how creative she is.

It was a long 3 to 4 hours wait outside THE DOME which is where the Craft Expo took place. So me and little Harvey walked our way around the Olympic Park. Mind you I didn't think we were even close to completely tour around the place. It was hard specially if first you don't know which places you would need to visit and second you don't have a map.

I think Sydney Olympic Park is a great place to visit, you'll see a lot of memories from the 2000 Olympics done here in Sydney. Lots of names engraved here and there. So here are my takes on this nice place.

The ANZ Stadium, if only I was not lazy enough to retake this picture next time making sure the whole name of ANZ Stadium appears this would have been perfect for me.
And yet another angle of the stadium.

Here are some poles near the ANZ Stadium with names engraved in alphabetical order. I'm not sure if these are names of the participants on the games though silly me :).

And yet another angle of the poles.

Here is the Acer Arena, where the concerts are held. From the posters I saw "Smackdown" and "Kelly Clarkson" will be held here.

There is this huge ladder almost taller than the Hotel near it.
A huge fountain, where kids are actually taking a shower. Yes kids do take a dip on fountains be it huge or small they simply think its fun. I'd love to try it sometime.

Here it is when it is turned off.

Some views of the walk.

And a little of nature.Hope you like my pictures. There is still a lot of places here to explore and a lot of pictures yet to be taken by me, so I would definitely come back to this place, next time armed with a basketball, some extra shirts, a bike for my little harvey or may be his scooter will do and most importantly food for a little family picnic.

Manly Beach - Sydney Australia

It was the 1st of January 2010. When we were able to visit Manly Beach in Sydney. This is the first beach we visited as a family. Its quite small and full of waves. Yep, unlike back in the Philippines where in most beaches don't have much waves, in Sydney beaches have huge waves that's why surfing is quite popular here.

Before going to the beach we had our first breakfast of the year, I got my self the "BIG ONE".

Here are some of my take on the beach.

Sydney's - Luna Park

One common attraction in Sydney is Luna Park. Luna Park is a carnival with many rides and it is worth visiting when you are in Sydney.

The entrance is free, so all you have to worry about is the rides passes. Here is the list of the prices when I last visited.

and here are some more pics I took.
