Sydney airport has a quite strict regulation, and it took quite a long time at the immigration. Finished with the luggage and passport/visa checking, then we ok to go! 2 of our colleagues welcomed us at the front, and took us to tour around the airport (they said, it's an Airport inspection) before drove us to hotel. Once we got to hotel there was a slight problem occurred, they can't find our booking! But after 1hr we finally get our room *thank God. It was already 1700 o'clock, and since we have several restaurant inspection to do, so we didn't got the chance to have some rest in the room. We spent about 2 hours for inspection on foot before we hit an Indonesian restaurant called "Delima" for dinner, yeeeaay! Enough with the yummy foods, we go back to hotel to get some rest before tomorrow's tight schedule to Hunter Valley.

Today we had 3hours meeting at Sydney office, then heading to Fish Market to grab some "fishy" lunch. I totally in love with this place! It's a bit look like Jakarta's Muara Angke, but with more various seafood, and of course, cleaner. Fed up with seafood, it's time to get back to work. This time we have to do inspection to one of free tax department store, called DFS Galleria at The Rock. Since we still have spare time until dinner, my boss allowed me to wander around and me her at the DFS lobby, so i decided to wander around at The Rock. There are so many cafe around the The Rock, and within 5 minutes walk i can see the famous Sydney Opera House, wow! Enough taking pictures at the Harbour, it's time to go back to DFS and heading to Zilver Restaurant for dinner. The dinner itself is not special but on the way back to hotel, one of our colleague took us to China town for shopping. Oh my, it was heaven! I bought some souvenirs for my friends and family.

Last day before going home to Jakarta. We didn't really got a fix schedule for this day. So we spend it for shopping at Paddy's Market and wander around Sydney (Opera House, Harbour bridge, Darling Harbour, etc). It was a fun day, because we don't have to follow any schedule. Oh ya, i took a city train (double decker, yep, a double decker train) from darling harbour to central station (nearby our hotel). Me and one of my colleague ate Sop Buntut and Nasi goreng for dinner and the portion was awesomely huge! We didn't finished it :p

Jakarta here we come. No more money left in the pocket, so i spent most of the time before depart to airport at hotel. I took taxi to airport and it only took about 40minutes from hotel. I went back to Jakarta took 1350 flight and arrived safely at 1820 (Jakarta Time). So this was the end of my trip to Oceania (New Zealand and Australia). So long, auf wiedersehen! I shall be back :)
