Uggs, Hoodies, and crazy Chickens!

17th October

overcast 18 °C

Again... we didnt have a plan for today, we picked somewhere we could go for free on our travel pass, which today was 'Watsons Bay' and headed off! We called at Bondi Junction to pick up my Birthday Present, i'd been wanting this hoody from a livesavers surf shop, it said Bondi Beach on it, so Ashley said he'd buy it me for my Birthday, yey! not a bad birthday afterall!! Taking the oppurtunity of being in Bondi Junction we went to PIE FACE!! We both had wraps then Ashley had a chicken pie, and when he bit into it and saw the contents he said it looked 'Vulgs' which im thinkin meant he wasnt to keen on Pie Face's Pies, but he ate it! I went for a sweet pie, a cherry pie to be exact and it was good, i give ashley half because i thought he looked a bit disappointed with his choice! We got a juice after this, and a yoghurt, these were good and we discussed the juice bar situation in England, which apparantly isnt thriving!
After our refreshing lunch and me wearing my hoody not caring if i looked like a tourist at this point we headed to Cental Quay;the harbour; and because we were saving money on our flights, i thought it was only right that i buy some UGG boots, which are cheaper over here, so really how could i refuse! THEY'RE SOOO COMFY!!!
Ashley wasn't feeling very well at this point so we went and sat on a bench watching the boats, some old people being attacked by birds and some random weird crazy person pretending to be a chicken for money, seriously he was crazy and for some reason ashley was really freaked out by him. So on our way past i asked him if ashley could have his picture taken and literally had to push Ashley next to him! haha! He smiles on the picture, but he assures me he was freaked out!! The picture doesnt really do the chicken man justice so we're gonna go film him!
After this experience We needed a sit down so went to the botanical Gardens and sat on another bench, no crazy birds attacked us today though!
When we got home we sorted out our flights, and they're as follows, well we think!! We are allowed to change them but hopefully now we wont!

31st October - fly to Cairns 07:05am

28th November - fly to Singapore from Cairns 13:55pm

4th December - fly to Bangkok from Singapore 22:30pm

27th December - fly to London from Bangkok 00:35am (bit of a poop time)

28th December - Fly to Manchester from London

Soooo.... we're home a LOT earlier than we thought, away for Xmas but home for new year and we come home on my Mums Birthday, so a nice/bad present... plus Ashley points out... "Our xmas shopping in Thailand will be well cheap, like a tenner for the lot" which is also good!!

So having our flights sorted we didnt have much left to do, just accomodation for singapore and thailand and changing the insurance. Well... later on we Booked some accomodation in Singapore for 6 nights, and it looks soooooo nice... click the link below to have a look:
The Hotel In Singapore

So we're pretty much sorted, we've emailed the insurance people for a quote and to see if we could upgrade or something, and we've emailed people about accomodation in Thailand. We also spoke to someone today about whether Thailand was safe, and we were told that it was fine! that lots of tourists visit each year and that it was perfectly safe! So mum, Stop Worrying!!

Some Pictures from today are on the link below:: (look for Ashley with the weird chicken man and me in my new hoody and Ugg Boots, I refused to take them off even when i got home - gonna sleep in them!)
