so i arrived in the big smoke. been here a couple of weeks now, staying with 2 girls from scotland in a nice little house in maroubra aka Bra. this is where the bra boys come from if you've seen the film. infact. the land lady's actually one of the bra boys mums. so we've been partying like no tomorrow and playing on the beaches in the day. christmas eve was great fun, but i think we got a bit too carried away, as our hangovers kind of took over chritmas day and there was no chance we could make dinner. we went to bondi instead and the palce was packed. people all over the place, mainly backpackers though. it was like a big beach festival. so boxing day was our christmas day. i made dinner for the girls and we plaed in the garden in our bikini's like kids (that had been drinking punch) then next came new years eve. we stressed ourselves out by trying to get into the botanical gardens to see the fireworks, but the line was so long that people who got in line by 10AM only just got in before they shut the gates at 3pm. mental! so we ended up catching a bus out of town to Dover Heights, where we could see all the way across the city. unbelievable. We arrived at 11am and partied all day and into the night. i managed to get right to the front to see the fireworks and they were so amazing all reflecting of the water! i've got some video footage and all the pics are on my facebook. so i have a trail for waitressing at a little italian restaurant tomorrow night, fingers crossed i can earn myself some money before i leave in february to meet pheebs in singapore! Happy New Year Everyone!!
