Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 3: Lady Musgrave Court and Captain Cook Drive

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 3: Lady Musgrave Court and Captain Cook Drive
At last, I've finished written up my last entry to conclude our 3D2N trip to the Great Barrier Reef! And since it was a road trip, there was so much time spent on either sitting in the bus or riding on the boat. I'd rather take flights if we were to visit Cairns next time, seriously. Upon our arrival on the first day, we had so much fun playing on the Agnes Water Beach. Day 2 was even more exciting with activities like guided walk at the Carpicornia Cays National Park, fish feeding and hours of snorkeling at the Lady Musgrave Island and Coral Lagoon, as well as sunset watching and a little bush walking at the Joseph Banks Conservation Park.

Anzac Holiday Trip: Surfers Paradise and Kimchi House

Anzac Holiday Trip: Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise
As we arrived on the Gold coast, we did not head straight to the beach but dropped by Harbour Town for a short while. With a cheerful mood, everyone left the car only to find out sooner that almost all of the outlets were not opened for business. I mean, what could we expect? It was the Anzac Day! We bought nothing and eventually left for our next and final destination of the day.

Anzac Holiday Trip: Outdoor BBQ in Brissie

ANZAC Holiday: Trip to Brisbane & Gold Coast
It was Anzac Day Holiday last Wednesday when I went on a trip with a bunch of  my friends. Initially, we planned to go to Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise, but there was a slight change of plan on our way heading down to the coast. We stopped by Brisbane for an outdoor Korean barbecue!!! Well, that was a bit out of my expectation, but the main important thing is, we really had fun and enjoyed ourselves.

Eat, Live, Love at La Porchetta Toowoomba

Eat, Live, Love at La Porchetta Italian Restaurant
Our friend came over two days ago to get some K-dramas off us. Rooftop Prince, Love Rain, and Fashion King are few of the new and my most favorite ones at the moment, if you were to ask me for recommendations. We had a little chit-chatting, then being offered to join them dinner at this La Porchetta Italian Restaurant located on Hume Street (opposite Hooper Center).

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 2: Joseph Banks Conservation Park and Town of Seventeen Seventy

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 2: Lady Musgrave Cruise
I could barely smile with my sun-tanned skin after hours of snorkeling at the Coral Lagoon. My hair was so rough (due to the very limited tap water supply here, no showering or shampoo-ing but just a quick rinse off was allowed), fluffy, and messy because the genius me forgot to bring my hair comb along. We chose to sit on the open-air upper deck this time, instead of the air-conditioned lower deck which made us suffer so badly from sea sick.

Graduation Celebration Lunch at the Angel Cafe

Graduation Celebration Lunch at the Angel Cafe
After spending almost an hour taking photos at the Japanese Garden, we were still kind of in a dilemma of choosing between Chinese or Western cuisine for lunch. Shaine intended to try out the new Chinese restaurant in town, but her longing for Angel Cafe's nachos was far more zealous. And therefore, we decided to go there in the end. Thanks aunty for treating us such wonderful meals!

Bestie's Graduation Ceremony and Photoshoot at the Japanese Garden

Bestie's Graduation Ceremony and Photoshoot in Japanese Garden
I had a very significant mission to accomplish today, which was to attend my bestie's graduation held in the K.J. Stapleton Stadium, Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre of the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). The ceremony started at 10 a.m. and thus, I woke up few hours earlier just to wash and blow-dry my hair, and to get myself dressed up with some light make-up on.

Veny's Unusual Birthday Bash

Veny's Birthday Party
First of all, my sincere apology for starting off today's post with this act-cute pose of mine. I just couldn't help it, really ;p And as you can see, I did put some extra efforts in selecting my outfits and styling my hair to attend Veny's birthday bash last Saturday. The occasion was held in the afternoon, unusual time I know, and the celebration went unusual long too!

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 2: Snorkeling at the Lady Musgrave Island and Coral Lagoon

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 2: Snorkeling at the Coral Lagoon
Howdy!!! I'll be taking you along to Lady Musgrave Island and Coral Lagoon for a little snorkeling adventure today! I promise, it shall lead you to nowhere else but a paradise of fun and excitement, no money back guarantee! ;p Earlier on, I mentioned about a 45-minute guided walk at the Captricornia Cays National Park and lunch buffet on the boat that came afterwards. Now, it's time for us to gear ourselves up with snorkeling equipment such as snorkel, mask, flippers, life jacket (which may not be necessary to you but it's extremely crucial to me), and start swimming like a mermaid!

Night View on Q1 Skypoint Observation Deck Gold Coast and Beach Front Markets

Night View on Q1 Skypoint Observation Deck Gold Coast
Have you ever spent hours sitting there watching as the sky changes colors? It was like seeing a flower bloom in spring after a long winter, timely and endearing at the same time.

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 2: Capricornia Cays National Park on Lady Musgrave Island

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 2: Lady Musgrave Cruise 'Spirit of 1770'
Day 2 of our Great Barrier Reef Trip. I woke up at 5 a.m. in the morning after having a not-so-good night sleep. Not that I wanted to, but I'm a very light sleeper who tolerates zero noise when I'm asleep. There were people snoring, bunk beds creaking... and all other noises that drove me nuts *pulling hair*

Madtongsan II and Max Brenner Chocolate Bar Southbank

After spending a fun yet memorable day with our two friends on the Gold Coast, we farewell-ed the couple at the Brisbane Airport the next morning. Heavy-heartedly we hugged each other, bid goodbye, and fingers crossed, we'll be seeing them again sometime near the future. As the quote goes, "Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends."

Great Barrier Reef Road Trip Day 1: Agnes Water Beach and 1770 Backpackers

Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 1: Holiday Inn Brisbane
Happy Easter Monday, everybody!!! I'm officially back from my 3 days package tour to the Great Barrier Reef, still in a stage of recovering from my holiday mood and getting some rest in my home sweet home. The road trip was indeed an awesome one with my traveling buddies and Sunset Safaris, except the long hours sitting and crampy tight hips. In that very morning of departure, we met up at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Brisbane and took off around 7-ish.

Day View on Q1 Skypoint Observation Deck Gold Coast

Skypoint Observation Deck at Q1 Tower Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise
Say hello to Skypoint Observation Deck everybody!!! I finally came back again, landing my feet on level 77 and 78 of the iconic Q1 Tower after my first visit here about three years ago. The experiences and feelings were different this time, with different group of friends.

April Fools Lunch Gathering at the Cube Hotel

April Fools' Lunch Gathering at the Cube Hotel
Today is the 1st of April a.k.a. April Fools' Day. We had a rendezvous for lunch with a bunch of friends at the Cube Hotel in town. Don't worry guys, it was no prank at all. Everybody showed up in accordance and the catch-up was indeed a great one since we haven't really spent time together for a fair while.
