Coca Cola Summer Ad: We're All In This Together

It was love at first sight when I first saw this Coca-cola advertisement in one of the local cinemas here in Australia. I simply love the remix version of "We're All In This Together", the original track is recorded by the Australian singer in his 5th album, "Awake Is the New Sleep".

Pizza Hut: All You Can Eat

Pizza Hut: Salads & Desserts

We had our lunch at Pizza Hut, Ruthven Street this afternoon right after we got back from Harvey Norman. The Australian-based retailer is now having big sales on most of their products, and we were shocked to find out that the price of the digital and SLR cameras are actually darn cheap now. Although, I have the thought of buying a new camera but I intend to wait until everything is settled down. I must not spend my hard-earned money until then.

White Water World Gold Coast (II)

Please don't misunderstood that there was nothing else but only slippers in White Water World. To tell you the truth, it is really very inconvenient to bring your camera along with you especially when taking water rides. The worse thing was that we had to walk around barefoot in the water theme park under the burning hot sun. Anyway, here is a list of the rides we took...
  • Little Rippers (New)
  • Super Tubes HydroCoaster
  • The BRO (Blue Ringed Octopus)
  • The Green Room
  • The Rip
  • Cave of Waves
  • Nickelodeon Pipeline Plunge
  • The Temple of Huey

Moonlight Resonance Soundtracks (溏心風暴之家好月圓)

Moonlight Resonance [Heart Of Greed II]

In the past whole week, I was so hooked up with the hottest TVB drama in town, Moonlight Resonance, which is also known as the Heart of Greed II. Truthfully speaking, the storyline of the first and second season are actually pretty much the same, it just that certain roles of the characters have been swapped and several other characters have added to make the episodes more interesting. There are these two songs that I love so much and they were often being played throughout the whole drama series. Now, let me introduce you to Ice Cream (Talk to Me) by DNR and 爱不疚 by Raymond Lam (林峰).

Family In Australia - Day 3: Flying to Sydney

Eventually, I have enough free time to devote to write about my graduation trip to Sydney last September. However, due to the sudden change of weather here in Toowoomba, I can't help but fall sick again. On my graduation night, which is 6th of September, my family and I had a simple yet wonderful steamboat dinner together before departing to Brisbane Domestic Airport.
