Recently, I found there is a favor of coca cola. That is a coffee favor. I bought a bottle of this kind of coke to try. That is not bad. However, that tasted similar to the coke candy and smelled like a cup of real coffee. That is not 100% my taste. Anyway, it got more 50% caffeine; it made myself awake. That is the things I like. If you wish to stay awake, I think that is worth to try this.

Today, Brisbane Festival 2017 will be officially ended. That is the time for the largest event of this festival, Brisbane Riverfire, as the course event. It will start on Tomorrow 7 pm. At the time, there will be a ton of colorful fireworks at the River to light up Brisbane.
This event is not about Fire Works; There will be aerial displays from defense force at Southbank, not many other opportunities you can see the fighter jets from RAAF
According to the official website of Brisbane Festival,the timetable is listed as the below:
3.30pm RAAF Roulettes Display
4.30pm ARMY Helicopter Display
5 pm RAAF C-17A Globemaster flyover
5.15pm ARMY Helicopter Display
5.40pm RAAF EA-18G Growler display
7.05pm RAAF EA-18G Growler fly over as the start of fireworks
EA-18G is the latest RAAF fighter jet. Also, in memory RAAF Roulettes and C-17A Globemaster is the first year in Brisbane Festival, so I think you should not miss that.
I believe this event is worth to go! Thus A lot of people will go to Southbank for this. Then, the best way to there is using public transport. Translink will have extra services for this event!
Last week, I was in the city for a user group meeting. Thus, I took this opportunity to visit the main venue of Brisbane Festival in Southbank where is near my meeting place.
I arrived around 5 pm. There were not too many people. I feel quite comfortable, and there was not too crowded. I guess the most of people were still at work.
Although that was still a bit of early, I saw there were a few people at the entrance of Arcadia. They were standing in front of “Brisbane”sign for photo taking. I think that is a must-do activity.
Besides, there are a lot of people sitting in the open space pub for eating pizza and having a cup of beer.
Lastly, I saw there was a big screen in the middle of Arcadia. A cartoon in that screen can talk with the people in front of itself. That sounds interesting; I saw some people taking a photo in front of this screen.
That is too bad, and I needed to rush back to the meeting. If not, I would buy a ticket to enter Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent where has some music acts, floor shows and circus bravery. (Actually, I don’t want to spend money at all. Having meeting is just an excuse).
I think that is worth to visit if you will be nearby Southbank. It won’t last long; the festival is ended on 30 the September.
There are a lot of activities in this area this month.In Brisbane, We have Brisbane Festival. Also in Toowoomba, there is also a major event happening. This is The Carnival of Flowers, which held from 15th to 24th September.
First of all, I need to recommend you visit the private gardens of the Chronicle Garden Competition and I think that is a must-do event. Many passionate locals turned their private gardens into stunning floral showpiece . to participate in this competition. Those gardens are gorgeous, and some gardens are big, like a small botanic garden. For the detailed address of those gardens, you need to buy the 15th Septemeber of The Chronicle which is available in most of the local newsagent in Toowoomba. And if you would like to spend a bit, there are some bus groups to take you to those gardens, Toowoomba Visitor Information Center will have more information about this.
Besides, there is a large carnival and flower show in queens park. It is the main site of this activity.
Besides queens park and those private gardens, the USQ Japanese garden is also a must-do place. There are also many flowers in full bloom, very beautiful.That is an Authentic Japanese Graden. If you read those photo I took in there; you cannot imagine that in Toowoomba, not in Japan.
If you have time, you can also participate in the Grand Central Floral Parade parade on 16th September at 3 pm. By then, there are dozens of flowery floats will parade near Queens Park.
Please do not miss the Picnic Point. There are not too many blooming flowers to enjoy, but there is a beautiful scenery. Where you can take a panoramic view of Toowoomba.
I believe that this will be suitable for your whole family, that will be the best activity for you this weekend
From now to 30th September, we have a major annual event held in Brisbane, Brisbane Festival. There are different activities in the Brisbane district, such as the various art performance held in New Farm’s Power House. However, the main event is to focus on Southbank’s culture forecourt, which is called Treasury Brisbane Arcadia. There has been a small theater, Courier-Mail Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, where there are some musical performances. Of course, besides of live entertainment, there is a place for eating and drinking.T here are several food stalls and an outdoor bar.
Also this year, Kelvin Grove’s QUT Creative Industries Precinct has the Theater Republic, and there are some free live music shows and food stalls.
Of course, I would like to participate in RiverFire fireworks show at Brisbane River on 30 th September we must not miss!
The details of the different activities can be found on their website
EKKA, I believe that is the largest event in Brisbane, started today! This event holds in RNA showground until 20/8. This year is 140th EKKA show.
Originally, this event is an agriculture show. Of course, during the show, you can see a lot of livestock and crops.
Nowadays, EKKA got a lot of various activities. It sounds like a carnival. It got some rides and some live performances and firework displays at night!
If you go to EKKA, you should miss their show bags which is a bag contains commercial merchandise. This merchandise will have much higher value than the price tag of a showbag.
Also, this year got a new feature, the gourmet plaza. That is similar a street food market; you can enjoy from street foods in there. The stalls are from various restaurants such as Eat Fresh Mexican and Let’s Do Yum Cha.
Please do not miss that! However, the ticket price is quite high. For adults, each ticket cost $32. Children ticket cost $21. There is a cheaper option if you just want to watch the night show and having a dinner in there. You can get a Twilight Ticket for $16, if you choose to enter after 6pm.
Garden City will hold a food festival (Eat.Drink Festival) Tomorrow and on this Sunday. Yes, I believe this event may not be considered as a major event in Brisbane, but I am still keen to go. That is because Garden City is near our home. Moreover, we will go to Garden city for shopping or lunch at the most of weekend anyway. I think I do not need to take much effort for going this event.
Moreover, the programs are good, there are some free tasting activities and free coffee workshop. In additional, there are some discount deals during this event, for example, Jamaica Blue will have buy one coffee get one free offer. If you go to Garden City, it is worth to take the advantage to join this event

Two weeks ago, when we went to Garden City for our Night Shopping, we found that the HOT Star Large fried chicken which is popular Fried Chicken chain stores in Taiwan opened a new store in this shopping center, near the Daiso. In fact, they already opened a
Branch in the Sunnybank Market Square, but Market Square is the lack of parking spaces and too many people, so I am not very keen to try that store. Garden City store is in a different situation, there are a plenty of parking spaces, and there are a lot of major department stores or supermarkets, such as Myer, David Jones, Coles and Woolworths so you can eat chicken, but you can do your grocery shopping during the same trip.
Because of the location of the convenience, so you can try to HOT Star Large fried chicken this times
I believe that Thursday, this shop should be opened for only a few days, so there are a lot of people wish to try this new store. I spent some time to wait. After I had waited for a while, finally I got my large fried chicken breast.
This is a huge chicken breast, almost the size of my face. Also, this is very tendering too. However, that cost $ 8.5. Also, I got a small tip for you about this chicken breast, On Thursday, we bought the takeaway to home, although it is very delicious, that is not sufficient. On Sunday, we bought a chicken breast again, we ate that right away, the taste was different, that tasted very very good.
Besides of chicken breast, their chicken wings are good.It cost $3.90 for three.
Of course, you think you had too much chicken; we wish to try some things differently. I tried their sweet potato chips, and they are also very crisp.
All the above things are very delicious. We had their fried chicken twice a week.

Also as in the past, during the event, there are some live music entertainments.
Summary of the above points, it seems this year’s night market will be desirable.
