Vivid Sydney @ The Royal Botanic Garden

29th May 2018

Dear Chibi,

Last night Marcus, Emily and I hung out after work to see the Vivid displays around Circular Quay. It happened to be International Burger Day so we end up dining at Maccas’ and claiming our free Big Mac, woo XD.

There’s usually a ton of people at Vivid, but it really made a difference coming on a Monday night. There were still people, but it wasn’t crazy packed where you felt like you couldn’t move.

Here are some pics I snapped along the way :D The photos aren’t great quality, but it’s about experiencing it in person…right?? XD (I didn’t feel like bringing my camera ^^”)

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie animation. There was even a little booth selling merch XD

Vivid Sydney 2016

13th June 2016

Dear Chibi,

It’s Vivid Sydney again, that time of the year when the harbour lights up with interactive light installations. It ends next Saturday so do check it out soon if you were meaning to go.

We started off at Darling Harbour but arrived just past 7.10pm so we didn’t catch the fireworks display. We waited till 7.30pm for the ‘Laser-Dragon Water-Theatre’ show, since it only runs every 30 minutes. No fireworks though, which was a bit disappointing. The show itself was also quite underwhelming. I imagined the projections to be much larger. It didn’t look anywhere near as good as the photos you see on their website ;D It was okay. We probably could’ve skipped this area as it was also super packed (and not worth the wait).

Around 8.15pm, Hubby and I started walking to Circular Quay and stopped by Martin Place to see the installations along the way. Now those were pretty cool! My favourite ones were the animated car “The Art of Performance”, and the light beam that shoots right up into the sky.

7th June 2013

Dear Chibi,

Last night Jacky and I grabbed ourselves a yummy Grill’d burger before heading over to Darling Harbour to check out this year’s Vivid Sydney Lights display! Most people have probably checked it out by now, but if you haven’t it’s still showing until Monday June 10th :)

Here are some low quality but decent-enough-to-keep-Chibi-happy photos she snapped with her phone :)

We arrived just in time for the 7pm water work and fireworks display. It was packed with people and the show lasted for about 12 minutes.
