An economy flight (Scoot from Singapore to Sydney) was straining but finally touches down the red earth! Thought I can go easy on the transit to hostel and get a good rest but who knows it turn out to be the worst nightmare ever in my travel history.

I was waiting for 2hours at the airport with my phone calling to the hostel at every 20mins interval (just to make sure they don't forget me) but not a single shadow is on sight! Only until my final call then I was asked to take public transport instead!! What on earth is this practical joke have to go untill this extends?? I was starving and dizzy after hours in the flight& now stranded in the airport.

Arrived at St. James train station exhausted, just hope to lay down on bed for a nice nap. So where is this Elephant I suppose to find? All I hope for is the pick-up and never bother to look at the direction on the webpage when I make the booking online.

Open up the tourist map (I grab from Airport) and start my walks> pass through the garden> go under the tunnels> nearly get myself killed in the driveway> there I found the stupid Elephant!

Reception is as dumb as their pick-up service. It takes ages just to clear a few on the queue and I was overcharged for extra two more night by accident!! and was told to return to reception tomorrow for the refund, due to some of their stupid procedures. It's really a joy-killer.

Open my maps and started my walking toward Circular Quay which I somehow makes it to Darling Harbour instead. Not bad for a walks in the peaceful evening at Darling Harbour though most of the tourist attractions has been closed. Relaxing by rested my fat ass on the wooden giant bench and enjoying the view at the riverside is rewarding.

Then, I continue my walk from Aquarium to IMAX and finally to the Maritime Museum before
catch a ferry to Balmain follow by Circular Quay. So finally I did it! but it was
dark and nothing much happening there....
