Home-Cooking: Seafood Dinner (Fish, Crab, Oyster)

Home-Cooking: Seafood Dinner

Regardless of the fact that I'm down with flu, cough and sore-throat. But still I'm capable of preparing an all-seafood dinner together with my boi. We spent less than AU $50 on the ingredients, including the seafood, herbs and sauces.

Carnival of Flowers 2009: Lunch Invitation

As soon as the Grand Central Floral Parade ended, majority of the crowd (including us) was swiftly moving towards Queens Park. We met up with the rest of them and agreed to have lunch together over the chef's place. So here we are, standing in front of his beautiful house.

Gold Coast Trip Day 3: Top One Chinese Seafood Restaurant (Yum Jo Cha)

Australian Fair: Top One Chinese Seafood Restaurant

Although, it's quite windy and cold (approximately 15-19 degrees) today, but the weather is just a lot better than the previous few days. Most importantly, the dust storm is not as serious as yesterday. I'm in a very good mood today, and so, I decided to take everyone of you to "Yum Jo Cha" (have morning tea) at this Top One (第一楼) Chinese Seafood Restaurant located at Australian Fair, Gold Coast.

The X-Factor 2009 (Season 6): Best Performers and Videos

The X-Factor 2009 (season 6) is back, in search of the most talented singers for categories like male soloists aged 14-24, female soloists 14-24 years, over 25s and groups. I personally think these are the twelve BEST videos of the auditions so far. These contestants not only wowed the crowd, they have also successfully blown the judges away with their stunning performances. Some of them even touched me and made me cry. And because of this UK talent show, I started to fall for the songs by Kings of Leon, the American rock band. Watch them and tell me which of them is / are your favorite!

Gold Coast Trip Day 2: King Crab and Conrad Jupiters Casino

Shark's Fin & Chinese Seafood Restaurant: 3.6 kg King Crab

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a 3.6 kg King Crab right next to me!!! We had the most expensive (overpriced sounds more like it) seafood dinner here at the Golden Fortune Shark Fin & Chinese Seafood Restaurant (天宝鱼翅海鲜酒家) on our second night. So expensive that we could have walked out of the Louis Vuitton store with a brand new wallet / purse!

Gold Coast Trip Day 2: Dreamworld and Thrill Rides

Gold Coast's Dreamworld

On the day before heading down to Gold Coast, we have pre-purchased ourselves a stack of 2-Days-World-Pass Tickets with unlimited hops between Dreamworld and White Water World from the RACQ Toowoomba. These tickets can actually be used again for the second visit within the 14 days after our first. So, if you're planning to go there by 29th of this month, feel free to get them tickets from me.

Dust Storm Shrouds Toowoomba, Southern Queensland

Toowoomba Dust Storm
I woke up and noticed that the color of the sky reflected on my wardrobe mirror was unfathomably yellowish brown today. Immediately, I walked towards the study desk to check out the time, as I did not have my glasses on. I was like OMG?! What happened?!!! It was only 11 something in the morning, not 4 or 5 in the afternoon. And therefore, it's impossible for the sky to be in such unusual color at this time of the day. My first instinct rushed me to snap some photos, then I started google for the keywords, "dust storm september 23 2009 toowoomba".

After having a satisfying lunch at the Golden Fortune, we came to Mantra Legends Hotel to check ourselves in as well as the luggage we brought.

Gold Coast Trip Day 1: Golden Fortune Chinese Seafood Restaurant

Gold Coast: Golden Fortune Chinese Seafood Restaurant

On our first day in Gold Coast, we went to this Chinese seafood restaurant called Golden Fortune (金宝海鲜烧腊酒家) to have lunch before checking in to Mantra Legends Hotel. There were only four of us (Henry, Crystal, My boi and I) as the rest (Liho, Mandy and Albee) was still on the way to meet us at the hotel. And if you notice, that huge crab on my palm was actually a King Crab (皇帝蟹). Yes!!! We're going to have seafood dinner (海鲜大餐) together on the second day!

Brisbane River Festival 2009: Southbank

Brisbane River Festival 2009: Southbank

There was this record-breaking QBE Riverfire (one of the River Festival events) held at Brisbane River last Saturday, September 12th of 2009. Earlier that day, we departed at around eight thirty in the morning with my four other friends. Mory took us to the Translink train station to take train from Annerley to Southbank, as there'll be an expected massive traffic jam in the city centre.

USQ Graduation Ceremony '09: Lunch at Thai Cottage and Friends

USQ Graduation Ceremony 2009: Thai Cottage Restaurant

That afternoon, my boi returned his graduation gown at around 2pm. We planned to have lunch together at Qi'lin at first, but the Chinese restaurant was already closed by the time we reached there. With no other choice, we went to this Thai restaurant, Thai Cottage which we visited once last year.

09.09.09 at Fire + Ice Restaurant

Fire + Ice Restaurant

September 9th of 2009 (09.09.09) is a very meaningful day especially to those Chinese couples who intent to engage or to get married in 2009. In Chinese, the figure 9 represents "forever", so 999 actually means "forever and ever". We did not get married nor engage on that day, all we did was just a little celebration between two of us, indulged ourselves with some great food and beverages at Fire + Ice Restaurant.

My Boi's USQ Graduation Ceremony '09: Photoshooting

My Boi's USQ Graduation Ceremony '09: Morning Session

Here comes the second which is also the final part of my boi's graduation. Thinking back, we could have spent our time (although there was not much time left before returning the graduation gown) shooting photos in the Japanese Garden, just like what I did last time. But somehow, we just didn't do it this time. I told my boi that it'd be such a waste if we didn't make use of this opportunity to increase our photo collection. So, with no further delay, we urged everyone to gather at the USQ main gate to do some photo shooting.

City Golf Club: Graduation Celebration Dinner

City Golf Club Restaurant: Graduation Celebration

Just wonder if you have any plan tonight? And if you don't, just follow me to this City Golf Club Restaurant for a little graduation celebration dinner with my boi. Well, I'm all dressed up in black armors, shall we make a move now?

My Boi's USQ Graduation Ceremony '09: Morning Session

My Boi's USQ Graduation Ceremony '09: Morning Session

As mentioned, it's my boi's graduation ceremony today! I had to wake up early (early as in 7 am in the morning) to put on light make-up, to set my hair, and to get myself dress up as a pretty birdie. When we were both done and ready, immediately we headed off to Allison Dickson Lecture Theatre to pick up his graduation gown (between 8.30 am to 9 am). I was a bit surprised when they refrain me from following him to the graduation gown collecting area, in a nice and friendly way of course.
