TUESDAY 20April2010
My very unhealthy breakfast
Deep-fried Egg with Cheese

Damnit! Someone stole my Sprite AGAIN!

I wrote a very nasty note
and soaked the oral-contact part of the canned drink
with Tobasco sauce!

But after a while, I thought
If I can afford my LVs and G-STAR RAWs,
the more I should have a big heart and generosity to the poor soul
who obviously has no shame and poor upbringing
I should have compassion and pity for him/her instead of vengence

So I cleaned up the Chilli sauce and removed the note
and this time, I put TWO cans of Sprite
If he/she is really so pathetic to afford his/her own Sprite
or decided to remain as a thief for the rest of their lives,
you can take it! It doesn't cost me anything much.
But please leave one for me at all times.

Went to The Gunshop Cafe for lunch
with International Student Ambassador (Brisbane), Kelly
(You see my tip at a restaurant already cost more than a can of Sprite)

The lunch menu looks interesting
and I'm very spoilt for choice

smoked chicken and avocado salad w. asparagus | marinated artichokes & macadamia pesto

seared hervey bay scallops | spanner crab & corriander mousse, tempura zucchini flowers | micro herbs and salad greens | nam jim dressing
The scallops were actually fresh, not frozen!

The food looks awesome right?
Its super!
You have to eat it AT LEAST ONCE
during your stay in Brisbane!
