Love and Hate relationship with CityRail

Train is our number one choice of transportation mode in Sydney. We have a car, but most of the time, we can't afford the parking fee in the city or near the beach. When we can afford it, we couldn't get the spot. Usually we're not lucky enough. There is no Sydney bus run directly from the suburb we live, to the city. Well, there is an old Punchbowl bus service (private bus). Just by looking at that tired bus, you know that it's not for you :p Back to Train. It is so far the most convenience way to go anywhere.

Help! Big Idea Occupied Me!

Oh, sh*t! I've been to a river cruise, a birthday party, an eating out with British friends, a Pakistani wedding since the promise, and no single blog post from me? I am a bullsh*t. Lemme explain. A big idea hijacked my mind since then and I couldn't let it go. So I did what necessary to make it happened. I need a lot of time to study new things in totally different language. This is tiring, complicated but making me happy. It's just like falling in love with a new guy. No worries, Hubby, this is NOT a new guy, just a new BIG IDEA. I can't tell you what it is now. Give me a month to deliver. I hope everything running smoothly. Wish me luck! Write to you soon. Double promise now. *grin* A.K.
