This is the story of two Singaporean geeks
lost in Australia...
Yes, I'm gonna go missing for a few days
Those in Aussie can still text me or something
If I don't come back in one piece
I don't know when
Sunday, June 27, 2010
After my EHR3009 iHRM paper
lunch was at CITY MALL INN (炳胜美食)
245 Albert Street
The restaurant is kinda like a food court concept
but there's only one vendor
The menu is like our 煮炒 (Stir-fried) style
So you'll see dishes like Sweet-and-Sour Pork with Rice, Mongolian Beef with Rice etc
The restaurant is not packed
Pretty clean and service is quite good
Opens 7 days from 9.30am to 10.30pm
Errmm.. that is a soup spoon
I had Chicken and Vegetables
Its pretty good! Cost less than $10
Return Factor: 9/10
Met up with Richard-san in the city
We're going to a picnic gathering today..
Check out the pink-hair!
Yep.. Its a COSPLAY Gathering in Brisbane City
The very famous KITTY (left)
Richard is pretty famous and popular in the community
He invited me to this event - THANK YOU RICHARD SAN!!!!
THE WITCHES TEA PARTY
City Botanical Gardens
26 June 2010
The Cosplayers brought their food (mostly pastries and savouries)
They're really fun to watch
I think they are "happy-people"
very lively and vibrant
More importantly, the dedication in making the costumes
I would say its a CULTURE
And of course the event attracted a lot of photographers
Lots of dSLR and professional equipment
We are the people who choose gadgets over LVs and CHANELs
Find your favourite Anime/Managa/Game character here!
I think Cosplayers like to climb trees
Another famous photographer - U Gene
Photographers go all out!

56 Mollison Street
Its a Greek Tavern
so naturally - Mediterranean Cuisine
Expect lots of Olives, Cheese, Herbs , Pita Bread etc
Previously, we came here for coffee
The restaurant has a very nice little garden at the back
with lil scuptures - clean and welcoming
Service is excellent
We were served by a humourous male staff
(could be the owner)
Mykonos Salad (scallops with salad)
The seasoning is fantastic, however scallops taste a lil bland
Suggest that they are most likely frozen
Ivy ordered the Vegetarian Souvlaki
She said it was very tasty!
Return Factor: 7.5/10
GREEN BAMBOO RESTAURANT
153 Boundary Street
Its a small restaurant along the stretch
that serves Chinese-Vietnamese cuisine
The dining area is pretty clean with one female staff
running the entire dining area
Ambience is pretty basic and simple
Some rattan art and a Buddha wood art
Washroom is located at the side-alley next to the restaurant
The path is flooded with nasty-looking water
No key entry, it doesn't look safe to me
Menu is stained and flimsy
Some of the pages were detached from it already
Yes, its been a long time
A lot of readers has commented that they wanna see more JESSY BESSY
So here she is! Save the picture and put as your wallpaper..
You do not get to choose who I want to dine with! ROAR!
Also, dining with me today - Roy..
..and Wei Minn
Naturally, people always judge a Vietnamese restaurant by its Beef Pho
Very tasty! Taste like chicken, only better!
The poor thing looks pretty cute too..
I think this is the Duck with Egg Noodle Soup
Egg noodles (wanton mee noodles) in Duck stock
served with duck meat and baby bok choy
Vietnamese Pho Soup (combination)
It comes with only rare beef/chicken or a combination of rare beef, beef ball and brisket
Personally, I find the soup much better than Happy Days, but the beef ball is too soft
I would rate it on par with AJ Vietnamese, except this one has a more spicy soup
Flat rice noodles are nicely cooked
The beansprouts and mint leaves
that comes with the noodle dishes - pretty generous
Steamed Dim Sims (4)
These are our siew mai
Minced Pork with carrots
Pretty decent taste
Spicy Hue Style Pork and Beef Noodle Soup
The ladies had this
Its thick vermicelli in beef stock
Said it wasn't spicy enough
Return Factor: 7/10
Other Remarks: Will not use the toilet for $10
FREESTYLE TOUT (West End)
220 Melbourne Street
The ladies wanted dessert, so here we are at the very famous Freestyle Tout
I don't have to introduce the place
if you're new to this blog, go read the older entries
Also in the restaurant - Feeona Chang and Family
Seriously I need a hair-cut + shave badly
A lil bit of Queensland
Their signature dish
Caramel brownie, macadamia nut ice-cream, caramel sauce, chocolate, strawberry
Very orgasmic, very sinful, very tasty
Gives you a floaty feeling everytime
No, there's no marijuana in the dish!
Return factor: 10/10
Radio show 啦啦世界 (Lala-Land)
on Radio4EB FM98.1
Its a local radio station
our Singaporean time slot is every Sunday 10pm (Brisbane)

http://4EB.org.au/listen/ at 8pm (Singapore)
Jessy Bessy came along
and she liked Richard-san best among the DJs
Here's a lil preview of the show
Post-exams Party at Vanessa's
Not exactly a party, but it was pretty fun
to hang out with our international West End gang
Chris, Ivy, Scott, Gorm and made a few new friends
We had a lil barbeque and played soccer at the backyard in the dark
I head-butt someone's knee and had a concussion
I think I became stupid after that
1 + 1 = 2811
Rushed home after that to watch the North Korea match
Today the sofa is ALL MINE!
I'm the King of the Sofa!
Nah nah nah.. More Jessy Bessy!
Take.. and Go!

You can double-click on your HOME button

So now we don't have to open-open-close-close!
5X Digital Zoom Camera
Yea.. Digital, not Optical
So for the lazy or low-tech people who
prefers not to crop their photos, here's the zoom
Actually thats about it
how you multi-task is up to your creativity
I'm not too sure whether or not it "eats" more battery
But hey look! I can now Whatsapp and watch the sex scene
in House of Flying Daggers at the same time! =D
