My Trip To Australia: Brisbane

Im currently in my Sydney home waiting to go to the airport & fly to Melbourne...
And since I hav some extra time...
& a trusty pack of 500g Peanut M&Ms by my side...
I'd like to blog bout my Brisbane trip!
If i have time, i might blog about Sydney as well!

---------------------------

Hello Brisbane!In the early mornings of Thursday, 14 Dec, I checked myself in at Wellington airport with my companions in anticipation of an awesome holiday getaway!


Waiting In Wellington To Fly To Brisbane!

First Week Spent Mucking Around In BrisbaneI was mucking around in Brisbane during my first week...
Did not visit many sites...
Just explored some of the city, played football & xbox 360 games wif the boys!

The boys' favourite passtime... XBOX 360!!!
"Marvel: Ultimate Allowance" is a highly recommended game in my books!
Hada really great time working together wif 3 other players in defeating evil Dr Doom!
I giv it a FOUR OUT OF FIVE!
Thanks for the Xbox & the 4 controllers, Najib!
=)

I watched Casino Royale in Brisbane...
& IT WAS AWESOME!!!
The best Bond movie i've seen yet!
Bond as he is starting his life as a double-o-seven...
See him making mistakes & being vulnerable!
FIVE OUT OF FIVE!!!

Mucking around on the streets of Brisbane!
One evening we were innocently having a peaceful evening walk when flashes caught my attention...
Behold 2 young blonde ladies were mucking around wif a digital camera...
They took many pictures as they were walking on the street...
Annoying me with their camera flashes & inspiring me wif their zany poses...
We decided to hava flash fest of our own!
(The aforementioned ladies can be seen in the above foto.)

Armed with my fully charged Sony Cybershot T9, i activated the flash & started taking pictures of my own...
while ensuring the 2 young ladies could see our flashes!

We took many pictures as we were approaching them from the back...
Then, we quickly overtook them & took one last picture right in front of them!
What Fun! =D
(The Picture Above Is The Very Well Taken Last Picture!)

Movie WorldOn a Saturday, 2 days before Christmas, we headed to the Gold Coast in search of the Warner Bros Movie World!

I had to endure a 1 hr train ride from the city of Brisbane to Helensvale station
& then take a 10 min bus ride to Movie World...

Very very very very looooong wait...
=(

But It Was Worth it!
Welcome To Movie World!

Dream WorldOn Sunday, Christmas Eve, I headed back to Gold Coast...
but this time my destination was Dream World!

We cudnt escape the long train ride...
It drove one of us insane...

Once again, the long wait was worth it!
Welcome to Dreamworld!

The Giant Drop...
Yup... I went all the way to the top!
& I was dropped!
Not that scary actually...
=)

Wipeout!
My favourite ride!
Loved being tossed around & seeing the world upside down!
=D
