Toowoomba City


The Strand Cinema

The Strand is the cinema where we watched "10, 000 BC" about 3 weeks ago. When I told my sis that we watched our very first movie (after being here for 9 months) in one of the "old" cinemas located in the city, she was so eager to find out how does the building actually look like. So today, I intentionally brought the camera along to snap some nice photos for her.

We Only Got 4 Minutes, 4 Minutes...


Bathroom: Guess What

Two weeks ago, I made a post about water saving and that certain regions in Australia are now experiencing droughts. Out of the four seasons, "Spring" and "Summer" would be my most favorable seasons. Unlike "Autumn" and "Winter", the weather makes my skin extremely dry and itching like mad. Sometimes, I'm even force to take antihistamine tablets to reduce the itching besides applying sorbolene and body lotion.

Home-Cooking: Basa Fillet Recipe


Baked Curry Base Fillet

We've been cooking and eating good food lately, tried out new recipes such as Steamed Hot and Sour Base Fillet and Baked Curry Base Fillet. Both of the dishes were tasty, just like the Stir-fry Basa Fillet with Garlic Shoot, and 年年有 “鱼” I prepared during Chinese New Year.

Drive Free Traffic to Your Websites


VerveEarth

I just noticed there was such an e-mail in my mailbox when I was doing a house-keeping on my mailbox this morning. In order to satisfy my curiosity, I paid a friendly visit to VerveEarth. And as usual, I got myself signed up, and began exploring around.

The Rainbow Sky


Rainbow Sky

It was yesterday, late afternoon, when I took this shot. While I was on my way walking back from the university, I happened to notice there was a beautiful rainbow appearing on the left of the sky, in real close-distance. As I had no "equipment" with me at that time, so I just rushed back home to get our T100.

DFO Brisbane Airport (Part II)


Direct Factory Outlets Brisbane

We spent our 4 quality hours there, shopping and circling around the outlets to make sure that we wouldn't miss out any available "good deals". I wanted so much to get myself a beautiful fur sweater for this coming winter, but they're really pretty pricey. Lets see, the cheapest one costs around 150 dollars?

As I mentioned in my earlier post, we'll be going to DFO Brisbane Airport, the Direct Factory Outlets are made up of 120 big brands and they're having big bargains at up to 70% off. Oh well, here's a sneak peek of the items I've got for myself. There'll be more photos coming right up...

Water Saving


Bamboo's New Uniform

Yeah, they are my new red uniforms with black cap. Neither the kitchen hands nor the waitresses all wearing the same type of uniform. I personally think, red color is indeed looks more refreshing than the old black ones and I love the cutting as well. By the way, we'll be going for Direct Factory Outlets (DFO) Brisbane trip tomorrow at 7.30 a.m. Remember to come back and check out my upcoming updates!

Teen Horror Movie: Prom Night


Prom Night (2008)

Today, we headed to The Strand in the city once again, with the intention to watch the US top-charted teen horror movie entitled "Prom Night". The movie is a remake of a 1980 Canadian thriller starring Jamie Lee Curtis. According to Sony Pictures distributor, "Prom Night" has earned an estimation of $22 million during its first three days screening in North America.

A Busy Day in the Kitchen


The New Chefs: My Boi and Alex

While I was busy preparing chocolate cake at the other side of the kitchen, these two fella spent their "quality time" together, coating and frying the calamari pieces. I bet they did enjoy themselves throughout the entire process though, a big applaud to them!

The Spiderwick Chronicles


The Spiderwick Chronicles

The weather is turning unusually cold in the autumn, it was around 12 °C last night when we were playing "Chor Tai Tee" downstairs. Yesterday morning, we went for a fantasy movie called The Spiderwick Chronicles. This is NOT just another Bridge to The Terabithia or Pan's Labyrinth kind of films. I found myself pleasantly surprised as the story was tremendously entertaining and thankfully resolute, even the CGI effects were pretty amazing.

USQ Harmony Day 2008 (Part III)


Finally, I have the time to filter and photoshop the event photos of the USQ Harmony Day '08. However, the majority think that the activities organized this year were plain bored and simply lack of new ideas/ activities. Even the food prepared by the international food stalls didn't seem to be attractive enough.

These photos were taken using Sony Ericsson K550i, when I was on my way attending the late afternoon class. The sky was amazing beautiful, it's just that the cameraman (me) who failed to capture the true beauty of the scenery...

Cross-Over and Straight-Through
