My Favourite Part of Sydney: Royal Botanical Garden

Short Note: Hohoho, going Tioman next week to take my AOW diving license. Legitimate night dive here I come!

If there is one place that I love Sydney more than anything, it's their Royal Botanical Garden.

I know it's odd. Of all places beautiful and amazing in Sydney, why the garden?

I don't know, seriously. It's me with the nature, and the Royal Botanical Garden is probably the closest to nature I can find in Sydney, apart from the beach. But then again, the Sydney Palace Garden (also called) is not just any garden, it's a paradise, situated strategically next to the water edge's walk from the Sydney Opera House.

Kif, again, brought me here because he knew this would be a place I would like (according to his guts), and it's also the place where he stole a nap every afternoon after lunch before returning to his office back then. That was before he moved back to Malaysia la.

Also, it's a great place to take some kick-ass photos.

Some of the sculptures here reminded me of ancient Greece, or Rome, or Europe overall actually.

Being bloggers, we kinda went wild with every single stationary objects there.

It's always nice to go out with a blogger, we always understand my each other's need to camwhore every 2 steps taken.


Like this sundial, we stood there trying to figure out how to read the ancient clock, but figured that since there was no sun that day, it's impossible to do that. wtf.

So I hugged the sundial in the end. lol

Taking a walk in the park/garden can be a very romantic thing.

The trees and grass are always so perfect in alignments.

Once or twice you can sit and the bench and cuddle in the cold early spring time, or late autumn.


Take a walk hand in hand down the path surrounds by rainbow color flower beds.

Stop to kiss a flower.

Or pause to look at pretty little flowers.

Bathe in the bed of plants.

pretty sharp cactus
No, not these.


That's more like it.

If you really like the flowers you see, you can even buy some seeds of the plant back.

Occasionally you'll spot a weird plant you can't put a name on.

Looks like some sort of inverted red banana flower.

Or a tree that looks like a cactus.

We landed in the cactus park, which was such a delightful area to play in.

I was am'bushed' by a group of cactusaurers!

Kif found an erected cactus.

I got down to talking emo stuff with a new found cacty friend.

She had problems with her neighbours you see, they thought she was weird. :((

We found the park to be in its late puberty, because we stumbled across some massive pimples on the earth.

pretty little cactus

Kif tried to cheer them up by doing some quirky stunt next to the riped pimples.

see the pimples about to burst soon? so red on the top

It was really a fun and enjoyable walk in the park. The garden was closing when we did our last stroll in the cactus park.
