Today, from 2 pm to 8 pm, around 45 participated restaurants across those two shopping centers will offer $2 tasting plates. Besides, the ranges of the dish on the offers have wide range of choices, such as Chinese, Japanese, Hong Kong Style, Vietnamese, Korean and Taiwanese styles. Also, because we are in the Summer, this times, some restaurants will offer chilled desserts and they mentioned some other new mini tasting dish. According to their website, this event is only about food; there will be some live entertainments too, such as live performance from
local musicians and traditional roaming lion dancers . This year, they will have a dedicated Kids Zone. There will be face painting, board games and colouring-in. I think the kids will have fun too!

ToysRUS Australia ran into the Administration for a while. About a month ago, their Administrator planned to close down all stores across Australia.
Because of this action, all stores are running a closing down sales. Last week, I went to their store in Garden City. I found there are still a fair amount of stocks. The most of goods got the 20% to 40% off. Today, I got an email from them, there will be a further cut-down, 30% to 50% off. I think that will have some good deals. I bought a small bear for my daughter.

 

Brisbane City Council Library in Garden City is serving for Brisbane People for a long period of time. 20 years ago, I moved to Brisbane, that library located in Garden City. Moreover, that is a popular location After we did the supermarket shopping in Garden City, we can go to the Garden City Library for reading. In addition, the collections in the Library have a lot of Chinese books and Magazine. However, today is the last day of this “old” Garden City library. It will close for two weeks and move to a new location on 25/7. Please do not worry, that is still a good location in Garden City, only a steps away. That will move from the current location, next to “ToysRus”, to the new location next Bupa Dental. I read the floor plan of the new library. That sounds bigger too!
Lastly, during the closure period of this library, there will be a pop-up library at 2065A Shop. You can renew the loaned books and return the books.

SkatingAt Festival(Winter Festival)
Now is the winter time in Brisbane, but the lowest degree in Winter time is just only around 7-8 degree. Thus, we cannot see the snow at all.
However, you can go to SkatingAt Festiva to have a snowy winter.
From today to 22nd July 2017, a giant ice rink and ice slide have setup in King George Square. I believe you can skate in there. But you need to pay the entry fee, Adult $28, Children (8 to 13-year-old) $20, Kid (3 to 5-year-old) $10.(Buy online ~20% off).
Also, there are some food trucks next to the ice rink. They offer some hot foods, which is the best for the cozy winter.
That sounds cool, I think you should not miss this event.

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!
