Woohoo!!!!!

Soccerama? Soccermania? Whatever...

Yeehah!!! World Cup is over and done with. So, no more watching the idiot box at un-Godly hours. Yeah, there's still Tour de France live telecast but we're not into cycling. Yet.
Anyway, time for me to catch up on my sleep....yawn....

My Mama has other ideas though. I'm really really glad coz I've been begging to spend time outdoors though it's like 5-7deg Celcius out there. Angelina can stay home as she's still hibernating. Yeah, it's amazing how much a girlcat can sleep. Does she think that she's Sleeping Beauty?

Oh, but I digress. Anyway, Mama plans to take me to the city. Just us. Mother and son outing. Oooohhhh....am so excited.
First, we'll just have a picnic under the Harbour Bridge. Aaah...time to frolick on the green green grass....

Then, we'll just sit quietly while admiring that great architecture of the Opera House.

Next, a bit of adrenaline rushing adventure at the Luna Park.

Followed by some fishing at the harbour. Y'all know how I love fish...

If I can't catch any fish, I'll catch myself some birds then.

...or catch the ferry to go to the Sydney Fish Market...

Mama would have to get some money from the bank first, somewhere in the business district, before we hit the market.

And finally...when we return home... catching up on my sleep....again....

This is the city where I was born.
This is the city I love.

Signing off,
Brad (the unofficial ambassador of Tourism Australia) har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Dell dear,
Come live with me. Maybe we can swap Angelina with you... hmmm... what say you? I'll share the magnums with you too. har har har *evil laughs*

Pi Bani said...

Brad,
Go get one big bucket of icy cold water and pour it over Angelina. It's about time she realizes she's not a bear...

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Pi,
Why should we wake her up? Let her be. Am I not more fun to have around? har har har *evil laughs*

How can anything as gorgeous as you have an evil laugh, dear Brad? I think you're just not into cycling because your legs can't reach the pedals yet. Fishing's another story. You can just swipe the fish with your paws and claw one up for yourself, can't you?

Au and Target said...

If Angelina is asleep, that means more fish for you, right? Excellent!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

CO78,
What can I do, for I am blessed with four short legs. So, yup, no cycling. As for fishing, it's easier doing it in the Sydney Fish Market.

Gorgeously evil,
Brad

har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Au and Target,
Correcto! Let sleeping cats lie, eh? har har har *evil laughs*

:-)))

Wan Sharif said...

Can you fish samson fish at the harbour?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

TK Sensei,
I'm sure OctoPaul is getting a much deserved rest. All that prediction activities must be exhausting for him. What more with all those death threats he's been getting - paella, sambal, curry, stir fry, inked, BBQ etc etc. I think the Spaniards should rescue him. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Your Royal Highness,
Please, come. All monyets are welcome. There's plenty of banana for everyone here or else we'll just import from Queensland, OK? har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Cheqna,
Of course you can. It will only cost you an arm and a leg. I'm the best tourist guide around, y'know! har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Ayoh Wang,
Samson fish? Hmmm...will have to google that first. har har har *evil laughs*

kay_leeda said...

Hey Brad...u know, those pictures you posted reminds me of the hit drama series "Nur Kasih". I believe some scenes in the drama was shot at the park.

Angie still sleeping? U sure you didn't like dope her or sumthing?? Behave Brad....she's Ms Jolie you know *cruel laughs*

Naz said...

Cat,
Samson fish are known to be swimming in the same group as the Delilahs...ok?
No need to go look in the encyclop., just ask me...hehe!

I hope to go to Sydney some time soon. With the kids, of course. Will do the budgeting and scheduling for 2011 first. Could you lend me a paw?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Kay,
Errr...what's this Nur Kasih thingy? Sorry...I don't have access to soap operas, in any language. Mama's more strict than the Censor Board...sigh...
Angelina's looooong sleep is by her own choosing. She said this winter is too cold for her. So, she'd prefer to conserve her energy. See you in spring, she said. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Naz,
You coming here? Woohoo!!! Pucuk dicita ulam mendatang, kecik tapak kaki Olympic Park Brad tadahkan...just say the word. We'll create an itinerary for you. har har har *evil laughs*
Samson & Delilah is, by the way, an award winning Aussie film about the life of the First Australians (PC for aborigines), in the same ilk of The Ten Canoes, I think.

The film star,
Brad

Naz said...

Opps! *aborigine* is not PC? Since when? Please update.
The term is still widely used in popular anthro articles!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Naz,
The more widely used term nowadays is First Australians - in recognition of the aborigines as the original owners of the land. Apparently, calling someone an "abo" can be defined as racist. But it's good though that finally something is being put right. har har har *evil laughs*

The anthropology prof,
Brad

Naz said...

There's a wide spread arrogance in academia still. Many recent articles still refer to the non-PC term.
But then again, many people still believe in the myth of the lazy native. So...

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Naz,
Perhaps it's not arrogance but ignorance. The term First Australians have only been introduced recently. Maybe has not caught on elsewhere. Even then, there are still many red necks in this country who refuse to acknowledge the original owners of this land. Remember, they were shot on sight when Capt Cook first landed and then systematically "tamed" over the years. The climax was in the 1950s where native mothers were declared unfit mothers and their children taken away and forced to live among White people. It's only recently that the government has said "sorry" to the natives but the harm done to that lost generation was tremendous.

The aspiring Prof,
Brad

Dear Brad,

Can I come over when I am utterly tired and too worked up...Sydney looks lovely and it has been 39 years since I have been to Australia...Would love to check out Hobart and your friend - The cat and The Fiddle.

Alas, I have 5 princesses and Cruikshanks ...how to leave them. Oh yes, Uncle Rudi too. Who's going to make his coffee every morning?

A dream remains a dream?

I feel like getting away...What say you? Your Mom?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Ninot,
If there's a will, there's a way. Strike a deal with Uncle Rudi. 1. He's gonna have to take care of Cruikshank and the 5 kids, 2. He's gonna have to make his own coffee for a while. Promise him that you'll return a better person coz you've been recharged after visiting your tanah tumpah darah.... Oh yes, we'd love to return to Hobart too. Spring or summer should be wonderful. Not too cold then to sit in the piazza/atrium at the Cat & Fiddler. har har har *evil laughs*

ninotaziz said...

I am turning 'har har har "evil laugh" too.

A plan is unfolding....

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Ninot,
Ooooo....I'd love to be your partner in crime. har har har *evil laughs*

Great Sydney shots and great blog. My blog is all about Sydney.
Sydney - City and Suburbs

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Hie J Bar! Welcome to my wicked wicked world. har har har *evil laughs*

I amsterdam said...

Hey... the ferry looks almost like penang ones!!! I think...

By the way, you look just like my bro's sweetheart, so adorable. She decided to pass her s***l in his car (luckily on the rubber "lapik kaki") when he brought her home to kl. But he didn't mind, he still drove with her sleeping on his lap!!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Mother of Ilham,
No. This ferry doesn't carry vehicles so nothing like Penang one. Really? Your bro's sweetheart looks like me? Still single? har har har *evil laughs*
