Chicken Curry@Aburi Kitchen
During the Easter holiday, we were having lunch in Garden City. Our usual lunch choice Hanaichi, did not open. That is a good opportunity to try something new. So, we bought the other Japanese style takeaway in the same food court, Aburi Kitchen. It just opened a few months ago.
Finally, I ordered Curry Chicken with Rice. This is a bit more expensive than Hanaichi. It costs around $13, but there was an opening offer, I got a bottle of free water. That is not bad; the price sounds similar to others. Moreover, it tasted quite good. I like the sauce; it tasted quite sweet. Also, it had a lot of chicken meat. Lastly, the rice made quite good too, that was not too hard or too soft! I think that is a new Chicken Curry Choice for new.

Pepper Rice (Classic Chicken)
PeeperLunch is an original Japanese DIY
Teppan restaurant. They have branches in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and other Asia countries I had a lot of times when I was in Hong Kong. They opened a branch in Sunnybank a few months ago. I had once after a week. There were too many people. This was not an excellent opportunity to enjoy my pepper rice.
Last Friday, I had a chance to have lunch in there. That was a first real opportunity to taste that. I ordered the signature Pepper Rice with Chicken. That was quite good. The rice served on the hot plate. It made me feel warm. Moreover, after I stir the rice with chicken on the hot plate. I found there were some hidden sauces inside the rice. That is cool! However, I found the portion sounds smaller than those I had in Hong Kong. I felt that was not enough for me as a full lunch. Rather than that, I am quite happy with this lunch experience!

UNO-$5
When I opened the catalog for Woolworth’s specials this week, I found there is an attractive item – UNO, that is only $5 until the next Tuesday. That is a half-price special. In my memory, there is a rare opportunity. I cannot remember there is any half price special before. Also, the UNO is an excellent and classic game for friends; even I think that will be fun to play UNO with my wife and my daughter. So, I bought one today!

Sand Safari Arts Festival


The major event happening in Surfer Paradise is Sand Safari Art Festival. I have been there a few weeks ago. That sounds quite interesting. There are a number of sand sculptures sitting on Surfers Paradise Foreshore. All of them are themed with a different sea creatures, moreover, the artists only used sand and water to create them, they is magnificent! In additional, there are inflatable arts placed in the beach!

I have not realized today is the new year eve of Chinese New Year. Most of the Chinese in Brisbane live in Brisbane southside. Thus, we have a few of Chinese New Year Celebrations, although they are smaller scale than those in Sydney and Melbourne, I know there will be street markets and dragon dance. Our Chinese New Year Celebrations are mainly in Sunnybank Plaza and Grand City; those are the major shopping malls in Southside.
For Sunnybank Plaza, there will be kung fu and lion dance performances in front of the cinema at 10:30 every day from today to this Sunday and ice sculptures at 2 p.m today

There are also lion dance performances at Graden city between 16 and 18 /2 and fireworks at 8:00 pm on New Year’s Day. There are also lion dance shows in some smaller shopping malls in Southside. You can watch out for any announcements in your nearby shopping malls.

Super Blue Moon Tonight


Last night, we watched the news. BOM said tonight; we can see the Super Blue Moon. They said that would be the largest in the century. However, I remember about a year ago, there was a Super Moon. We went to Mt Gravatt Lookout for watching the Super Moon. All car parks were full. In the end, we did not stop at all. Thus, tonight, we will watch the Super Blue Moon in our
backyard. If you do not mind to seek a car park very hard, you can go to Mt Coot-tha Lookout or Mt Gravatt Lookout for watching the Super Blue Moon.

In recent years, Yum Cha Cuisine restaurant is working hard to expand their business, they opened several branches, and like to open in the mainstream shopping malls. Moreover, a few days ago, I found they also got a branch in Hyperdome. The most important things I found is a significant discount at lunchtime every day. All dim sums are $4.80. All “Small, Medium and Large” tag dim sums are in the same price.

So we had a lot of dim sums that day.
For example, prawn dumplings, in other branches, eacd dish costs $ 6.80. Now it’s just $ 4.80.


And my favorite dish, Dough Stick Cheung Fun has an original price tag,$7.80, now is priced down to $ 4.80. So today we had six dishes of dim sum. The final bill was $33.
This price is very attractive, so if you have a chance to go shopping that mall, you can consider this restaurant as one of your lunch options.
It has not the afternoon tea session, so the restaurant closes at 3pm, and reopen at 5pm for dinner.

Brisbane 2017 countdown

The time is passing so fast. Tomorrow is the new year eve. The major new year celebration in Brisbane is the new year fireworks display, and there are two sessions.

The first is at 8:30 pm, this is more suitable for the families with young children. It will be end at 8.45pm. For children, it is not too late.

The main session will be at 0:00 pm on New Year’s Day, 2018 and I believe it will be more exciting than the one at  8:30. As for Southbank and Eagle Street, both are the vantage points for watching the fireworks. In fact, Mount Cootha can see the firework. It is even more awesome to see the fireworks across the Brisbane River from the higher ground. It has a different experience than the riverside.

According to the Translink website, all public transport in Brisbane City is free from New Year’s Eve, 8:45 pm to January 1,5:30 am. This is good  for everyone to see the fireworks. There are also food trucks at the SouthBank, you can enjoy some street food with the fireworks too!

Every year, a lot of people will line up in front of the major department stores on 26/12 very early. They wish to get the best deal on the boxing day sales. However, during the recent years, you do not need to wait until 26/12. You can place orders on the Christmas day. Yesterday, I received the newsletters from UNIQLO and Target regarding their online stores are ready for Boxing Day Sales. Moreover, according to my experiences in previous years, almost all major shopping centers will be full of people on the Boxing day, even that will be very hard to get a parking spot. In contrast, shopping online is easier. You need to click a few buttons and make payment. Then you just need to wait for the delivery at home. That is more comfortable. Thus, that is worth to check out the websites of the major stores, whether they have already started the boxing day sales.
