Gold Coast

Lunch was at Fasta Pasta
Harbour Town, Gold Coast

Was kinda late cos I had to pick up some GUNSSA members
who were involved in Brisbane Festival

Joining us are members from GUGCSSA

Some of the ladies were on diet.. I think..

Choose from Traditional to Contemporary pastas

Tortellini Pollo
Chicken Toretllini sauteed with chicken pieces, onions, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, garlic, basil and baby spinach in a cream.
Well it ain't fantastic but it ain't bad
Pasta Mania standard
However they can house big number of people
So I'm quite happy about it.

Hard Rock Cafe, Gold Coast

Let's visit Ripley's Believe It or Not
at Surfer's Paradise, Gold Coast

Concession $18
Ripley's is one of my favourite tourist attractions I like to visit
Cos its very dynamic and bizzare
Weird people enjoy looking at weird stuff
Make sense?

World's Biggest Glutton, Skinniest Man and Tallest Man
(left to right)

The man with 双瞳 (two pupils)
Ancient Chinese believed that people who are born like that
are able to foresee future and see ghost kinda stuff

Lots of Tibetan, Indian and Chinese Relics

Hologram man..
As you can see there's a lot of repetition
in Ripley's all over the world
but its all a different experience

Man who's born with a blue face

Lord Ganesha

African customised coffins
Genting has quite a massive collection of them

My favourite section - Mummies

Shrunken Heads

Tibal Long Neck Women

This one is in ALL Ripley's

Chinese Lily Slipper

World Ugliest Woman

Man with Crocodile Teeth

This one is quite funny
You must see for yourself..

Painting Michael Jackson on crickets


This room has a weird laser smell
that you often smell in clubs

Cropcircle Chua

Baby born with two heads
Actually not abnormal
Lots of animals are born like this...

You may crawl through the lil hole on the left side if you can fit
Lots of interesting stuff inside..

My favourite game when I was young
You shoot the target and it interacts with you
Some will sing, some will squirt water at you etc

Manta Ray

Hazel Tea Shop for Bubble Tea
Shop 9, RSL Centre
Surfers Paradise

Taste pretty much the same as
the outlet in Brisbane City

Tea time at Malaya Corner
Shop 38, 341 Mains Road

I'm here with Linda, Ian, Matt and Jason

FML can you believe this is actually coffee?

I think I've been here too many times
and written too many reviews...
Read previous posts if you're interested.
