not in Castle Towers (Castle Hill) today

Well, I guess Castle Towers (in Castle Hill) does not like me.

I received an email from Apple on Monday that Apple would open Apple Store Castle Towers today in Castle Towers Shopping Centre. So I planned to be there and wanted to try to get an Apple Store T-shirt (as first 1000 customers).

Apple Store Castle Towers Grand Opening

I got up unusually early this morning, and check the Apple Retail Stores page, I realised the Apple Store Castle Towers opens at 5pm. Bugger! I have to work tonight, and without a doubt, I got up early for nothing. Something I thought it opens in the morning 8am or 9am.

Last time I went there for Harry Connick Jr's live performance. Only after I arrived there, I realised it got cancelled.

It would be my second time in Castle Hill, lucky, I checked the Apple webpage this morning, and saved the two road tolls. (I would have been there for nothing.) Well, the email Apple sent me did say it would open at 5pm. Somehow I missed that out completely.

According to Don's favourite online map service - Google Maps, the distance from my place to Castle Towers Shopping Centre is about 37 km (23 miles, via Motorway and tolls) or 30 km (18.6 miles, via Parramatta (Western Highway), no tolls). For Don's information, we planned to use the Motorway (with tolls).

Well, what did Laurent and I do instead? We visited Parramatta Park (in Parramatta, NSW) instead.

That is the story for today. Nothing exciting as in beautiful Boston or picturesque Quincy.
