SEM 2 . WEEK 4 . BRISSY


Arrived at Eagle Farm
to head to MORETON ISLAND (Tangalooma)


Joining me is BaoBao from Singapore


I'm a Child
So this is the correct ticket






Upon arrival, we watched DOLPHIN FEEDING


You may go down and feed the dolphins
Its free!


Nari is the famous dolphin
who survived a shark attack some years back
It has some pretty awesome scars


Eva, our pretty and friendly guide from Korea


Karaoke Facilities


Dinner at BEACH HOUSE ROTUNDA


Buffet-styled Dinner
Pretty awesome food


The mushroom soup is fantastic
Home-made from scratch


Steak is yum yum nom nom too!


Apple Crumble + Custard Dessert
Sweet endings for all


Amazing they even have an Islamic channel on TV


Breakfast is at BEACH HOUSE ROTUNDA




There's even congee!


Buffet style
The pancakes sucks, but the rest are very tasty!


4 Cereal to mix-and-match!


Fruits for sweet endings! =D


Lil boy with 50D
which is bigger than his head - cute right?


PELICAN FEEDING in the morning


Spotted a bird
which swallowed a hook


Cool guy rescued him immediately


What they usually do is
Let the bird swallow an oil soaked fish
which makes it puke all the shit out
including the hook


Went to book a 4WD Tour with Eva


Japanese boys playing volleyball
YABAI!


This is the Dolphin Educational Center
Kids write letters to Tangalooma after their trip


A dugong tried to attack me...


Our 4WD is filled with old farts
I think eco-trips only attract old men like me..




We were all awed by the beautiful clean and clear blue ocean
soft white sand.. the limiteless skies..
Simply beautiful!

Lake Blue
Very clean and sweet water
it has some good soil for facial
and mineral deposits that gives u good skin
Kinda like Lake McKenzie at Fraser Island


Makes u wanna kill Litter Bugs




Went to Whale-watch from the lookout


No zoom lens, so yea.. Photohunt for readers
Pretty cool.. we saw dolphins frolicking in the waters too




Remember yesterday
Walking hand in hand
I wanna hear you say...
(complete the lyrics)




Honeymoon Bay
Nope din take any panorama during this trip


Kitty Lunch
Picnic styled.. The old people are pretty cute


Ruins from the war


Ship wrecks
Great area for snorkeling


Time to say goodbye! =D




Many Titanic Fans had their dreams come true






Beautiful sunset..


"Ok get your asses off my boat!"


This month's FHM cover - Jessica Alba
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetttttttttt
Love her to bits


Pit stop at BP Caboolture


Very smart to have this hook on top of the roller bins
Prevents intelligent birds like crows from lifting the lids


Awesome license plate that reads 24PMS
Decal reads: "I want to be just like Barbie, that bitch has everything"


Arrived at Rollin Farms
Rutters Road
Caboolture


Eating one is ok
Eating many is a crime


Some brought their beautiful dogs here
Above, two cute beagles - Tiger and I-forgot-the-name


Time to say goodbye to them
and pluck some strawberries!




Great fun for families and kids!


Its really quite fun!
Maybe its just me
I was overjoyed to see those red ripe delicious sweet juicy strawberries


PLUCK PLUCK PLUCK PLUCK
Its hard to stop once u start...




Strawberry Production Line
A lot of China people work here as pluckers and packers
Seems like a fun job


Next stop - Australia Zoo
1638 Steve Irwin Way
Beerwah


Ticket Price
Adults $57
Pensioner/Student $46
Child (3-14yr) $34


1pm - Koalas LIVE!
Learn fun facts about koala bears
Like how joeys (koala babies) eat poop before they learn to feed from the tits
and about how koalas can sleep for like 20 hours a day
There are only 4,000 koalas left in Australia
Lets help save them!


Pat a koala bear
They look so silly..


Look! Here's one with a baby on its back..
Ok at this size, they stopped eating shit already.


This one already learnt how to eat shoots


Pat/poke sheep bottoms!


KIDS' ZOO section
where you can get upclose and personal
with lambs...


...nice-smelling piglets and many more!


2PM - WILDLIFE WARRIORS SHOW
Pretty awesome animal shows!
This is better than the Singapore Zoo
where you can only watch from afar..


Audience participation during the birds' show


Experience beautiful birds flying just before your eyes
Like less than an arm's length
IN YOU FACE!


Jaw snapping action with crocodiles
This one is doing a Tower
The croc hides in the water and ambush the chicken
and jumps up vertically to attack - quite scary!




FREE KIDS' RIDES




FEEDING FRENZY FOOD COURT
Its quite cool that they do not use straws
to protect the animals.
Also the food/drinks here is not over-priced
unlike Singapore Zoo


Yes.. there are a lot of these brainless signs
Australia-wide such as this one and
"Bags without people do not make sense"

But at least its better than those funny
China/Korean/Japanese signs with wrong English
that reads "It is ancient to pack photo"


KANGAROO SECTION


Wow! The Red Kangaroo is a monster!


Very cute and busy Echidna
Extremely adorable




Dead Wallaby - NOT!
These lazy marsupials like to laze around after meals
Note: I did not say "All Aussie-related stuff are lazy"






WETLANDS BIRDS
You can go really near to them
but try to resist touching them
cos they are wild and untamed
They may bite off your fingers


BINDI'S PONY TRAILS


Very magnificant SOUTHEAST ASIA section
Open your eyes big-big!




ELEPHANT ASIA


TIGER TEMPLE
Look how massive these strutures are
The design is inspired by Cambodia's Angkor Wat


Lord Ganesha


The amazing thing about the enclosures here is that
THEY ARE NOT SMELLY AT ALL
Even crocodiles and otters - probably the most awful smelling creatures alive
(other than the skunk)


Wombat in Khaki - so cute right?


AUSTRALIAN SNAKES - lazy


Not-so-lazy Australian zoo-keeper cleaning up
cos they are closing in one hour's time


Wombat taking a shower!
They are VERY VERY cute.. wobbly marsupials.


and they look like giant hamsters!


Kids can play inside the Fossil Dig
(hint: there's a dinosaur skull inside)


Extra Irwin family member?




Had a really awesome time!
Every cent worth while..

You can buy your one day ticket
and get the rest of Year 2010 FREE - unlimited visit!

Picking up Baobao at Brisbane International Airport


Airport Ambassador
I was a Changi Youth Ambassador
Does bring back very fond memories


I drove through the narrow round-about at about 80kmh
and fucked up one of the tyres
near Mt Gravatt... 丢脸
I thought I was Bunta Fujiwara
Fortunately the Rescue Unit arrived shortly..

Ya.. I'm from Macau too, cannot is it?


Ramen Lunch Special
Comes with free Spring Rolls


Spicy Ramen
Nom nom nom...
I love Ajisen in Brisbane
Its so tasty, unlike the Ajisen Ramen in Singapore
Gave them so many chance already, still taste like shit
and service from hell..




Spotted some Kangaroos in the City


Had my hair cut at Koogi
The stylist said "You no long style, you short style"
and gave me bangs FML
I hope he's not talking about my height


Dinner was at NORMAN HOTEL
Brisbane Worst Vegetarian Restaurant
(Woollonggabba)


Steaks grilled to perfection!


Lovely Lovely Steak!
This is at the moment my favourite steak house
in Brisbane...


This is why I dun really like to go to Fortitude Valley
A lot of silly drunkards who do stupid things..


Breakfast was at Golden Palace Chinese Restaurant
Chinatown Mall
Fortitude Valley
Look they actually call their Siew Mai - Steamed Dim Sims
Like how Aussies have been calling it


We were the first customers to arrive...


Siew Mai - Tasty and very Q-delicious
Chicken Claws - Tasty and fleshy claws
Pai Kuat - Not tender, not enough black bean; fail
(From top left clockwise)


Har Gao - Delicious; Thin foreskins skins with fresh Q prawns


Har Chiong - Left on the pass for too long
It was not piping hot when it arrived
Wraps were a bit thick, but prawns were tasty
Portion size very good


I've no idea why there is a chair in the restroom
May be for "Invisible Guardian Spirits"
or for the staff to sit down when they tie their shoe-laces
I dunno!

Return Factor: 8/10
Pretty good food and value-for-money, but you gotta know what to and not to order.
Pretty impatient and anal female China (not Hongkee) staff. Service can be improved.


UNPREDICTABLE PIGS
They pop up anywhere!


Fly Magpie..
Fly...
Fly...
Fly...


Some DotA screenies
Getting pretty rusty after not playing for a while..






Lindy's respond to my DotA playing..
I have no idea why girls hate DotA so much
Come on... Give it a chance!

FIN!
