Sydney is the city that reminds me of Singapore. They are both modern financial centres with busy bankers filling the streets and coffee shops. People are always in a hurry, much like how the cities are always in a hurry to keep up the competitiveness and attractiveness. My trip to Sydney mostly focuses around the Circular Quay: the Sydney Opera House and the Contemporary Art Museum. I watched my first (rather expensive) Ballot performance in Sydney Opera House and fell in love with the uncompromising art form. But my most memorable days were spent on a train – a trip to the suburban Sydney (Richmond to be more precise) where I found a coffee shop with a book shelf.
