We Heart Sydney


Join this contest to win a Sydney holiday and a Canon Digital Ixus camera! All we need to do is to share what we think is an awesome Sydney experience and we could be one of the lucky winners. Open to Singapore residents. The contest ends 10 Apr 2011.

I was most impressed that one of the recent winners of this contest, Christine, has never visited Sydney. Through good research and a dream to visit Sydney, she submitted her entries, and Congratulations, she won herself a pair of flight tickets to Sydney on Singapore Airlines and a Canon Digital IXUS 1000HS!

After my two memorable visits to Sydney in the year 2008 and 2010, I am open and receptive to visit Sydney yet again, preferably this autumn in Sydney. If you have enjoyed any of my blog-entries on my Sydney trips, could I please ask for your generous vote to support me in this contest: We Heart Sydney?

What you would need to do is to have a Facebook account, visit and "like" the WeHeartSydney page and click on the "thumbs-up" icon on any of my entries to this contest, e.g. Be inspired, loving the art and culture in Sydney!. And you may win yourself a bottle of Hunter Valley wine for voting. Good luck!

Your support will be greatly appreciated as I am looking forward to share my sketches from yet another sketching spree at Sydney with you.

Here are some of my ideas of other awesome Sydney experiences:

Wonderful Watsons Bay.
"Take a ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay. Then climb up to the top of the Sydney Harbour Nature Park, Gap Bluff, to be treated to an awesome view. Crashing ways that release the healing negative ions. Nature has its way to bestow us with its beautiful gifts of art."

Marvelling at whales and dolphins
"Somewhere out there at the beautiful Port Stephens, which lies about five hours from Sydney city, is the unique encounter with fellow mammals of the open sea. A city dweller's dream of the sighting humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins now comes true easily. This makes Sydney so Sydney!"

On the top of the Observatory Hill!
"Sydney is about feeling at the top of the world! On the top of the Observatory Hill, surrender to the awesome sights of the Sydney cityscape, the harbour, the Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, the Anzac Bridge and the Observatory. Feel as if everything is within your reach. Everything!"

Sculpture by the Sea.
"Water breaks over the rocks of Bondi. The wind blows with might. On the rocky and sandy beaches of Bondi, one is treated to beautiful sculptures by the sea. See the coastal area of Bondi being transformed to an artistic space in this annual event. Sydney equals sculptures, sea and a creative story."

The Rocks that rock.
"My words of gratitude to the courageous and visionary people who have fought for the preservation of The Rocks. The precious part of Sydney's and Australia's heritage now stands for generations to see. Marvel at the sandstone structures, Cadman's Cottage and Sydney's history. Sydney rocks!"

Milsons Point: The tranquil point to marvel at the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House
"Sydney is about tranquility. I was introduced to Milsons Point which I have no prior knowledge of. One can have a lovely view of both the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House at peaceful Milsons Point. To conclude the tranquil day with some fun, one could head to the nearby Luna Park!"

The freshest calamari rings at the Sydney Fish Market
"When it comes to food, Sydney stands for quality and freshness. Head down to Sydney Fish Market and be dazzled by the treat to fresh seafood. Let the wonderful folks at the Fish Market whet your appetite with their sincere cooking. The calamari rings here are the freshest I have tasted in my life!"
