GUNSSA @ GOLD COAST
Arrived at HARBOUR TOWN SHOPPING CENTER
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
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.
Return Factor: 6/10
GUNSSA meets GUGCSSA
Dirt Cheap Shopping for both men and women
Linda is like a character from Maple Story
Always full of funny surprises
Matching sweaters for best friends!
Girls and New Shoes - the most horrible combination on Earth
Its like Gremlins and Water
Do not let them meet!
After that we went to Broadwater Park to chill out
A treat for all who are young at heart
Dinner time at the mansion..
A private lake.. How sick is that?
Tasty Peranakan-style food prepared by Chef Matt
Everyone had an awesome time!
iPad challenge games
Found a strawberry at Jason's backyard

Main Beach, Gold Coast
We should hold out club meetings here...
Hard Rock Cafe, Gold Coast
Let's visit Ripley's Believe It or Not
at Surfer's Paradise, Gold Coast
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
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
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
African customised coffins
Genting has quite a massive collection of them
My favourite section - Mummies
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
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
Hazel Tea Shop for Bubble Tea
Shop 9, RSL Centre
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.

Red Bean Paste Cake

Char Siew Bao

Tender pork ribs
Tasty but not enough black beans
I like it unhealthy

Tasty not impressive, but one of the better ones in brisbane
Deep fried Cuttlefish Tentacles
I have no idea why the menu says squid
cuttlefish is NOT squid
but yea.. it taste pretty good
Not spicy at all
as much as there're lots of chilli oil
Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice
Tasty.. Tender chicken, flavorful rice
has duck egg yolk in it and is very fragrant
Has chicken thigh meat, chinese sausage, chinese mushrooms in it

Lovely! Just the right sweetness
and has real mangos inside
