WorldVentures has just started in Australia for about a year. I thought it would be a good opportunity to make a short trip there to excite some Aussies to come aboard with WorldVentures. The truth was, at the end of my trip, I felt that the Aussies did much more to excite me than what I wanted to do for them. Enjoy this story.
After settling into Sydney, one of the first places I wanted to go immediately was to the Bondi Beach. Bondi Beach is a popular beach in Sydney and represented in one of the most popular sporting competitions across Australia. I have fond memories of this place having visited it 15 years ago. The beauty of Bondi Beach is always captivating and refreshing.
However, my heart was heavy today because I got news that Mr Lee Kuan Yew, founding father of modern Singapore, has passed away. He was 91 years old. My whole nation was grieving. I was grieving too at a faraway land.
Mr Lee was a man on a mission and he gave his life to build his dream. His dream was Singapore. He faced a lot of obstacles building Singapore but he never gave up. I want to thank him for his leadership, heart, wisdom and his sacrifices. Without him, there will be no Singapore story to tell. He has made Singapore a shining red dot on this planet. RIP Mr Lee. Your legacy leaves with us and lives in us always. We will always remember you.
Travel parties are our opportunity meetings to share WorldVentures with our friends. There are many travel parties happening now all across Australia. I was invited to attend a travel party by my friend Ken. This happened to be my first travel party! So exciting!!
That’s Ken presenting enthusiastically to an inquisitive crowd who are curious about this wonderful opportunity that has landed into Australia.
My Australian counterparts brought us out for supper after the travel party. I like the awesome feeling of having friends wherever I go. Do you? I like the camaraderie that i found in WorldVentures. Priceless. Can’t wait to see more of Sydney the following day.
The famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. Tourists like to climb this iconic bridge. Tours run throughout the day, from dawn to night, and are only cancelled for electrical storms or high wind.
Is this new? I didn’t know that the famous madame tussauds can be found here too! Later in 2015, I went to the Madame Tussauds museum in Hong Kong. It’s good. The wax figures look so real.
Aboriginal culture and music. There are about 500 different Aboriginal peoples in Australia, each with their own language and territory and usually made up of a large number of separate clans.
This man painted himself with golden color paint. He sat there so still for so long…what patience!!
Of course, the famous Sydney Opera House. The Opera House is Sydney’s best-known landmark. It is a multipurpose performing arts facility whose largest venue, the 2,679-seat Concert Hall, is host to symphony concerts, choir performances, and popular music shows.
Identified as one of the 20th century’s most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world, the facility is managed by the Sydney Opera House Trust, under the auspices of the New South Wales Ministry of the Arts.
Took a ferry to Manly Beach
Manly combines a laid-back beachside attitude with sophisticated dining and shopping. Manly’s long ocean-side stretch of sand, running all the way from Queenscliff Beach to North Steyne Beach and Manly Beach, has long held a strong attraction for walkers, bathers and surfers alike.
Next day – to the Blue Mountains!
Experience fresh mountain air as you rise above Sydney and enter the spectacular Blue Mountains region. The Blue Mountains is perfect for exploring the best that NSW has to offer. The Three Sisters at Echo Point, bushwalking, galleries, dining, shopping, day spas, golf, and numerous attractions. The Blue Mountains is the ideal destination for that romantic getaway or family escape.
Finally got to take a picture besides the famous three sisters. Bucket list checked!
Special thanks to my dear friend Terence who took time to drive me here.
Do you know why blue mountains look blue?
Answer from DR Google:
The Blue Mountains is densely populated by oil bearing Eucalyptus trees. The atmosphere is filled with finely dispersed droplets of oil, which, in combination with dust particles and water vapour, scatter short-wave length rays of light which are predominantly blue in colour.
Big Shot Event
It’s so timely that I could go to this event because a VIP flown all the way from Singapore to share with Aussies this amazing opportunity. Excitement was in the air!
My dear friend, mentor and fellow Singaporean, James Lee, the first person who started the WorldVentures movement in Asia back in 2010 when there was nothing. James gave a passionate opportunity presentation and many people were excited. Tomorrow he would conduct a training (we call it a “regional training event”) for our WorldVentures family in Sydney. I would be there to learn and support him.
WorldVentures Regional Training @ Sydney
Almost a full house event! People were paying attention to this big deal.
James Lee in action!
Got to know new friends in this business. Friendship is a good deal to me and that’s what attracted me to WV.
We recognized people who have worked hard, led well and played hard! James made us laughed so much and helped us to learn so much. Thank you James Lee.
We are one big team, one big family, one big fun club and we have one big mission – to help more people make a living…LIVING!!
This is a fun club. How to share this club? Just have more fun!!
When did this dino pop up? She must had been so attracted by fun people! 🙂
I love rainbow. Do you? It usually comes after the rain. No rain, no rainbow. In life, we have to go through the test, pass the test before we can have our testimony.
Are you going through some sort of test today? Don’t give up buddy. Don’t resent the test. The test is meant to make you better and stronger. Ask God for help. He will see you through even the most difficult test you could ever face. God will not allow you to be tested beyond what you can bear. There’s always hope in God. When you are tempted to give up, think about the rainbow.
It’s just a short week in Australia but i felt that I have been here for a long time. Time to pack and go. I am ready to experience the next chapter.
