I will make a list of culture shocks in Sydney including the differences
between Australia and my country (or Canada), and known facts as well.

1. Everything in the city is expensive except for chicken.
2. Of course Japanese things are very expensive.
However, Korean and Chinese things are very cheap.
3. The Air is very dry.
4. The weather is more erratic.
5. Australian English is hard to catch.
6. There are many Asians, especially Chinese and Korean people.
China town in the city is very large.
7. Australians use the unit "kg" rather than "lb" used in Canada.
8. Cars drive on the same side of the road, unlike in Canada.
9. Cars don't move at all while people walk across pedestrian crossings.
10. Some people eat a hunk of meat for breakfast.
11. The service from supermarkets clerks is very bad.
If the worse comes to the worst, they don't say a word.
12. Some Australian women who are not skinny wear short skirts or overexposed dresses.

My roommates agreed with some of my views and added the following.
1. Some people do not care about fashion.
2. Streets are clean since there are no bins or not so many cigarettes.
(I don't think so though)
3. The service is better. (The opposite opinion of mine)

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. murky (on TV)
= deliberately obscure so as to conceal dishonesty or immorality.
2. premier (on TV)
= the chief minister of a government of a state or province
