this is a long post

Day 1:
There wasn't any pre-departure xcitement or anything. More of like, 'Am I really going Brisbane today?' Guess the trip is really too last minute for me to handle haha. Just the day before I was shopping w @kSachdev for a suitable jacket/coat/wtv .

more of their pretty faces in this post!

IMG_6604
very typical school trip thing?

IMG_6608

Reached Brisbane at like 2am and drove down to ze hotel~ The whole place was pretty quiet and everything.

IMG_6643
all amazed by this luggage carrier thing

IMG_6645
first shot in brisbane~

IMG_6653

Hotel for the night. its a budget hotel btw but the room/toilet/everything was bigger than our 4.5 star hotel in gold coast. How contradicting.

IMG_6652


Day 2:
Everyone was saying that it will be freezing cold in Brisbane but its alright for me. Ok its pretty cold in the night (after like 4pm) but bearable during daytime i suppose. So... I didn't put my 2 jeans into good use. Plus 2 shorts, 2 dresses and a few long sleeve tops. Overpacked... I know.

IMG_6673
really like their letter box!

IMG_6678

IMG_6683

We were at some highest point of Brisbane or sth... Really pretty view and good place for the camwhores.

Then was lunch at chinatown (which sucked) haha there is Chinatown basically everywhr. I like bkk's the most though. The shopping....

IMG_6768

IMG_6760

I remember all of us were bushed (aussie lingo for tired) during the lunch. We slept at 4 and had to wake up at like 7? I was literally dozing off during the talks at uq (University of Queensland).

IMG_6785

I guess this patch of field at uq really made us tempted to further our studies in Brisbane. How often do you see people just lazing around the grass, reading a book or just hanging out in Singapore? Its so... Relaxing and movie-like.

There are other more tempting things though... Like it only takes 1.5 years to complete the degree and the weather omg the weather is awesome over thr. Had a talk with daddy hahaha. It takes 30k more (frugal living expenses included) to study there as compared to a local university. Worthy if its more recognised...

Oh well. First pirority will be a local uni but that goal seem to be drifting away each day. :(

my eyebags come out to play alr.

IMG_6795
best company for long bus rides.

IMG_6801

I think we shopped at Woolworths almost every night because the chocolates there are mad cheap!! Some flavors are not even available in sg... At the end of trip, I bought like 15 big bars of cadbury... 6 pkts of other kinds of choco... Opps.

Day 3:

IMG_6806
her fave spot of the hotel room: the balcony

IMG_6809
looks good bt imagine eating this for a few days straight. bleh.

IMG_6811
uncle brian, by far the best (and lamest) guide

IMG_6814

We visited QUT (University of Queenslands Technology). It really felt that they were seducing us to study in Brisbane. The whole 40% of Brisbane revenue comes from international students really proved it. Pretty place but ya...

IMG_6821

IMG_6827

IMG_6823

IMG_6829

We visited an advertising agency too and it was so cool inside. No photos because we were all tired and sweaty after walking like a thousand miles to the building. Kinda inspired by this company to stay in marketing.

IMG_6839
Dinner at Hardrock Cafe!

IMG_6861

Shopping wasn't that great in aussie. We expected aus brands like cotton on, supre, diva, billabong, etc to be cheaper over there but it wasn't the case. $30sgd for 2 tops in cotton on is also $30aus over there... :(

Day 4:

IMG_6919

Above is one of the rides tt i will die rather than sitting it.

IMG_6920

This too, I was almost tempted to join them but... Ya. It will go high up spin a lil then drop down and swing to another side spin a lil and drop dwn then higher and higher... Can you picture it already?

IMG_6925
Ze brave girls

IMG_6926

IMG_6928
This was quite fun though!

IMG_6936

My legs were so wide open. This thing will turn like 360deg around and you feet will be dangling in the air... So I guess I subconsciously 'kiap-ed' my both feet at the sides so that it wouldn't dangle. So embarrassing...

Ok moving on.

IMG_6955

So pretty~

IMG_6956

IMG_6958

Followed by shopping night again~

Day 5:

IMG_6969

We were at Point Danger and the view was so pretty! Willing to die for a house facing the Pacific Ocean... The sea breeze and everything. Sigh if only we were able to pack all of those into our luggage and bring it back to s'pore. :(

IMG_6970

IMG_6973

IMG_6977
spot the surfers!

IMG_6982

IMG_6988

At Tropical Fruit World where we basically sat all modes of transportation. Bus there, some tractor thing, boat and the miniature train (trust me, miniature).

IMG_7066

IMG_7039

Moved on to Wildlife blahblah where the steak sucked haha. Most boring place throughout the trip. Maybe I was just too tired.

IMG_7040
talks talks and more talks.

IMG_7050
hangover kangaroo

IMG_7052

IMG_7064

Then to Honeyworld for more talks... About bees.

IMG_7069

IMG_7073

IMG_7074
the honeycomb was good, should have bought more. :(

Day 6:

Woke up at 5am (sg time:3am) just to see the sunrise at Surfer's Paradise but... It was cloudy. The water was cold the air was cold everything was cold and it was a complete waste of time, could have slept more...

IMG_7087

IMG_7092
plz don't mind my flasher outfit and my morning face, it was freezing.

IMG_7142

IMG_7131

last balcony pic

IMG_7173

We were at Habourtown where there are like 100 over factory outlets there. Satisfied my shopping cravings because the stores at gold coast can be quite pricey hehe. Luvin' my loots!

Particularly in luv w this shop called 'Typo'. More of the wall deco they sold haha was so tempted to get that Eiffel Tower... :(

Will get my wall done and show u all~

IMG_7174
even talks for shopping.

IMG_7175
more and more eco totes.

IMG_7186

Last minute shopping at Surfer's Paradise!

IMG_7202

IMG_7205

IMG_7214
Last shot at Brisbane, @jerrbears are u proud? ^^

That sums up my 7d4n at Brisbane/Gold Coast. It was fun and definitely memorable with the awesome company over there. Of course I got to know more about people who are like acquaintance in the past... In the good way and bad way though. The knowledge gained is like whoa.

Long post right bet most of you are just looking at the peektures. From 540 photos in camera to 200 photos for fb and lastly, 100 for blog.

Hope you enjoyed this post, I know its long-winded but pretty useful for future reference hehe.
