Australian Adventure (Day 9 of 21) - Chilling at Home

     After having such an action-packed Saturday, my ninth day in Sydney was mostly spent relaxing at home and having a short trip to the nearby grocery store to buy some food, chocolates and to rent some DVDs.  The last one was more of a surprise to me because apparently in Australia, there are still plenty of people who are willing to shell out some money.  And mind you, these rentals don't come in cheap.  Unlike in the Philippines, wherein the norm is to download the movies/tv shows over the internet.

      Once we made our selection, we went back home and had some afternoon snack - Filipino style.  We ate at the terrace where we had a relaxing view of the neighborhood. As I was feeling a bit nostalgic, I decided to catch up with a friend back at home over Skype. (Ahhh, the wonders of technology!)

Couldn't help but hoard some Cadbury chocolates, especially since they were on Sale!
Yummy Pancit - reminds me of home

     With my tummy full, I decided to spend the rest of the day reading a good book in my Kindle. Though I may not have gone to a special or new place that day, I still thought that it was a day that was well spent. After all, no vacation would be complete without a relaxing day at home.  Sometimes, our days could be so busy and fast-paced that we forget to appreciate the simple things in life.  A home cooked meal with the company of family, exchanging stories and laughing their hearts out, is what most people take for granted. Getting together in the family room to watch rented movies may not be much for some, but it was definitely enough for me. These kinds of bonding moments are the ones that I treasure the most and would fondly think of, many years from now.

    How about you? When was the last time you spent your day at home just bonding with your family?

More Soon - Day 10 - Back to Olympic Park
