I remember when I first got here,
Everything was so strange and different!
Sydney was so cold in July that year
But it must get warmer, of that I was confident.
Bacon and eggs were quite nice
But they sat rather heavy in my tummy.
Oh, how I longed for some curry and rice
Instead of plain meat and boiled veges, yummy!
So, off to Chinatown we went
To get some rice, noodles and chilli.
The scent of Asis pervades, it doesn’t relent,
The flavours get you hungry, especially when you’re chilly!
