It was raining not long after this picture was catch. [please bring umbrella to anywhere you go]

We are running through the rain for almost 10 to 15 minutes with the cold weather somewhere around 10 degree Celsius [lesson learned] to the next spot.
We arrived to a harbour and head above a ferry i [guess] that will cruise along the river & enjoying the night view with a cocktail party inside the ferry.
The skies turn completely dark once reach 5pm, the interior of the ferry is lighted with light, reflection, cant see the opera house at all. Suddenly, all lights was up and we finally saw the scene after waited for 3 hours inside the ferry. By that time, they are having VIVID SYDNEY light show.

Its very nearby the china town actually, walk somewhere around 5 to 10 minutes, then will arrove tho the china town that sells many foods. Unfortunately, all the shops is closed.
