Birthday Getaway Trip Day 1: Sunnybank and Brisbane


Roadtrip to Brisbane and Gold Coast
Here comes Mr. Choo's pre-birthday celebration cum weekend getaway to Brisbane and Gold Coast!!! We made sweet memories together, apart from being showered by an abundance of delicious meals, plushy accommodation, fabulous shopping goodies and so forth. The weather was exceptionally good as well after a rainy and freezing cold night.

Yumcha at Landmark Restaurant Sunnybank
First stop, yumcha at Sunnybank's Landmark Restaurant. It's part of our routine thingy and was more like an early lunch for two of us, considering we arrived there at about 11-ish.

Sitting next to the fish tank with heaps of live mud crabs. Holy crabs!!!

Roasted pork belly in huge pieces. Mr. Choo was overjoyed xD

Silly him being teased by me because of "something" funny he said. LOL

Shopping in Sunnybank Plaza
Window shopping after lunch. There were plenty of pigeonhole shops around here.

Aww, can guinea pig and hammie be anymore cuter?! I really felt like snuggling them!!!

Mercure Hotel Brisbane: Riverview Room
Upon arrival at the Mercure Hotel Brisbane, we first checked in our baggage, then took a short rest and got everything organized before heading out.

The TV was a lot bigger compared to the previous room we stayed. Not that we actually care about the size of the TV, but I think it somehowe enhances the overall appearance of the room and what's more?

Mercure Hotel Brisbane: Riverview Room
We had the most beautiful day and night views of the Brisbane River!!!

All these luxuries cost us absolutely nothing. That's right! The one-night accommodation was free and we only paid for the parking fee ;p

Now, are you ready to do some real shopping? 'Cause I am!

Treasury Casino and Hotel Brisbane
We walked pass Treasury Casino and eventually reached the place we wanted to visit, Queen Street Mall.

Shopping at Queen Street Mall
Me pledging guilty with my innocent eyes and smiling face... Yes, I've just got myself the most attractive winter coat from Forever New (blame the designer), which apparently also the most expensive piece in my wardrobe. Thanks Mr. Choo, muackz!

Sipping on my favorite Plum Green Tea with Rainbow Jelly.

Mr. Choo shouting for full body massage already.

To be honest, my feet were getting sore too =/

But we gotta keep walking! The Wheel of Brisbane and candlelight dinner won't wait for us!!!

    1. Thanks! The weather is getting cold as winter is approaching ;)
      Mind if I ask, where are you from? I think Forever 21 is quite a famous brand in the United States.
