After leaving Malaysia we flew to Sydney and immediately returned to the youth hostel we had met in ten year earlier; Glebe Point Village Backpackers. It hadn't really changed in ten years, but it was a bit of a shock compared to the Sheraton Beach Resort. The city itself had also not changed very much, which is a good thing as it is a wonderful city. We spent some time walking around the places we remembered, visiting the beach, and of course a bit of shopping!

She said YES!

On the last day in Sydney when we were walking through Hyde Park I asked Sandra to marry me. Surprised (and perhaps not fully understanding what she was saying!) she said yes. Hopefully it won't take us another ten years to actually get married! Either way I'm one lucky guy.

Still shocked
