Yesterday, I was in Time Square. I saw the Korean Grocery Store is running a promotion for Chinese New Year, 20% off store wide. I read the information in the store; this promotion will apply to all branches until 29/01. That is great! Tomorrow, I will go to Hanaro Mart at Calamvale Central. I want to buy some snacks!
A few days, when I did my grocery shopping at Coles, I saw the gift box for Lunar New Year(Chinese New Year) were sold in there. Is Lunar New Year coming? Thus, I did a google search. I found this Saturday,28/01, is Lunar New Year. Then my next question is any celebrations in Brisbane. Well, Google gave the answer too.
Of course, there will be a lot of celebrations in Sunnybank Plaza where is a hub of the Chinese community. From today to 29/01, every morning 10:30 am, there will be a Lion Dance (with Kung Fu demonstrations during the weekends) in front of Hoyts cinema. Also, 29/01 3 pm, there will be a dragon dance in the food court.
This year, Westfield Garden City joined the celebration of Chinese New year. There will be some celebration activities during 27/01(5 pm – 6:30 pm) and 28/01(4:30 pm – 8 pm) Of course, the activities included Lion Dance which is a “must-have” performance for Chinese new year. Moreover, at 7:30pm, 28/01(the Chinese new year day), there will have fireworks too. Please do not miss that!
There will be a fireworks display in Southbank tomorrow again. This times is for Australia Day. The fireworks display will start at 7:30 pm tomorrow.
According to my experiences during past years, there were a lot of people attended, but there were much less number of people than New Year Fireworks. We were not very keen to take the photo of fireworks, so we did not want to be in the front row. Every year, we went there around 6:30 pm – 7 pm. I think that will be easier and more comfortable to watch this fireworks display.
I think if you have time, you should go there, that is worth to be a part of Australia Day if you live in Australia.
I worked in Brisbane Technology Park for a while. During last year, there are a few of new buildings too. I believe there are quite a fair amount of people work in there. However, there are no enough choices of Coffee Resturant. Fortunately, the new building at 4 Clunies Ross Ct has a new Coffee Shop, black ink coffee.
