Adidas Sport Shoes


Yesterday, I went to Harbour Town in Gold Coast for shopping. I found there are a lot of stores are on sales, such as $5 T-Shirt in Cotton-on and Extra 25% off for VIP member in Sheridan. The most attractive discount was in Adidas. That was 50% off storewide! I bought a pair of sport shoes for $49! What’s a bargain! Moreover, I bought a t-shirt for running for $14, that was a good deal too.

According what I saw in the store,  there were no information about how long this 50% off offer lasts. But I found a lot of goods were out of stocks and some items had stocks, but I did not find my size. Moreover, there was a long queue in front of cashier. I spent more than 30 minutes in the queue. So, if you want to check this 50% off offer, please consider these!

A lot of people were lining up in front of Chatime

Tomorrow, 27/8, Sunnybank Plaza will have a one day sale event. A lot of shops in Sunnybank will have some special offers, such as Buy a standard coffee get one free offer in Shingle Inn and $9.90 Fish & Chips with a can of soft drink in Sunni Cafe. Also, during the day, there will be some snap special offers. These will only last for 10 minutes at the scheduled time. At 12:30 noon, Chatime will have buy one get one free offer on their drinks.

I remember last year, Sunnybank Plaza had that sort of one day sale event. I was in there too, that wasn’t too bad at all. The only things I felt bad about was spending too much on the queue of getting  that  buy one get one free offer in Chatime.  Thus, if you have some free time, that is worth to have a look. For further details, please visit their website.

Thor Filming - BrisbaneThor 3 is filming in Village Roadshow Studios, Gold Coast.  Also, this week, the film crew drove up to Brisbane CBD to take some film shots. The site is near Mary and Margret Street. This afternoon, I and my wife was in City for an appointment. Thus, we took this opportunity to go this site. We did not see any super stars, such as Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston. We saw the crowd of fans at the street and some film crew members were working for film preparation.  I thought that would be a long wait for the stars coming.  Also, the crew members were very nice, I saw them gave a number of bottled waters to the crowd. At the end, we spent five minutes in there, then we went home. If you want to see them to film the movie, I think that is still possible, I checked the Mains Road website, there will be some road closures for this film until 31 August.

King George Square

Recently, I need to be in Brisbane City a lot for my work. Almost every times, I passed King George Square on my way to work. I found there were a lot of events in there. I saw a street market in there for a few times. There were a few stalls for selling fruits and vegetables.  Even tonight, I was in there too. There was a street night market. A few street food stalls were  in there, some of them were selling pasta and pizza, even some chinese cuisine too!  Also, I heard there will be a Korean Culture Festival  tomorrow from 10am to 4pm.  I believe there is some events every day!
