Christmas Fireworks 2019

Christmas Fireworks

Christmas is only a few nights of sleep away, again, that is an excellent time to find the true meaning about Christmas. By the way, now is the period of “Fireworks Season.”, From Tonight to 23rd December, every night at 8 pm, the Brisbane river will have 15 minutes fireworks display. Please do not miss that; you can see the Christmas Parade at 7 pm earlier time, then you can see the firework displays. Lastly, most signature fireworks will be on New Year Eve.

Danbo Ramen

Danbo Ramen, This name has already been heard by friends. It is a ramen shop on the gold coast. Afterward, I heard that she opened a branch in Brisbane city. Unfortunately, I never have a chance to try this. Until recently she finally opened a branch in our southside of Brisbane, so there was an opportunity for me to try it out.
First of all, their interior design is quite glorious, very Japanese style. The space in which to sit is also very comfortable.

Danbo Ramen - Miso Ramen

For the tasting, on that day, I ordered Miso Ramen. The soup base is full of flavor, and the texture of the noodle is also elastic, and char siu is not too fat. There are some ramen shops in Brisbane that have this level of quality. However, Danbo Ramen offers somethings special. You can choose the hardness of the noodles, and even the saltiness of the soup base, which is unique. It seems like no other ramen shop in Brisbane offers this option.
Besides, I want to talk about its serving size. According to my stomach size, it is a little less, and there is no free extra ramen. It will cost $15, which is small for me. However, if you are willing to spend an extra dollar, you can have extra, which is still reasonable.

In summary, this ramen shop is attractive, and this shop sounds comfortable than Hakata ramen. The only bad thing is that if you pay by credit card, they need to charge a handling fee, so that is better to bring your cash

Santa Claus@ Myer Christmas Parade 2013

That is a major event for Christmas Celebration in Brisbane City. Tomorrow is the night shopping in Brisbane City. I think that is a good activity if you go to Brisbane tomorrow night.

I am a Christian. Of course, I must say the best event at Christmas is going to a church service, you can understand the true meaning of Christmas. Besides this, Visiting 4QK Christmas lighting winner is a must-do event of Christmas. In Brisbane, there are a lot of people keen to set up Christmas Lighting Decorations in their front yard. For some people, they are much more passion about this. They will design and set up the Christmas Lighting Decorations in their front yard and join the 4QK Christmas lighting competition. All winners of this competition open the front yard to the public from today to 24 th, let everyone will see their professional Christmas Lighting Decorations. In the past years, I have been several winners. All of them are super professional; they converted their front yard to a Christmas Theme park. Please check their details on the 4QK website, and the council got the bus tour to travel around the winners.

In the southside of Brisbane, there are a lot of shopping centers that have Santa for children photo taking. But the major of them are not free of charge. There is a free one. Tomorrow, from 5 pm to 8pm, Sunnybank Hills Shopping Town will be Santa and his closest friends for photo taking. Moreover, there will be a little parade from level 2 near Lincraft to outside Best & Less at Level 4. Then they will be settled in there for photo taking.

At King George Square, a 22m Christmas tree has setup, and the lord mayor will be officially light the Christmas tree at 6:30 tonight. This giant Christmas tree is the landmark of the Brisbane Christmas event, which will be setup at King George Square every year. Therefore, after the lighting ceremony, a series of Christmas celebrations officially started for Brisbane. For all Brisbane Christmas celebrations, please see the Brisbane city council website. If you are going to the night shopping at City tonight, it is worth to check it out.

Santa Village - Garden City

Now is only a month away from Christmas. In Australia, a lot of shopping centers already has set up the decorations for Christmas. A lot of them even hired Santa. That is a kind of unofficial custom to take your kid to have a photo with Santa. I took my daughter to do that last two years, that is an excellent way to leave a memory for her when she grew up. For some larger shopping centers, for example, the shopping center near us, Garden City, they set up a little Santa Village that looks beautiful. Christmas is around the corner. That is good to check out any fun activities for your kids. Well, as a Christian, I am more keen to wish everyone can know the true meaning behind Christmas.

Sweet Shine

The Calamvale central side is getting more and more prosperous. After opening the Taiwanese Style Bubble tea shop, recently, there are a new Taiwanese Style Resturant. Moreover, that is quite popular. I tried to have lunch there last week, but unfortunately, there are too many people! Even the staff told us that the waiting time was almost one hour, so the results did not go there to eat. Perhaps because their price is very reasonable, a fried chicken or fried ribs bento box will be just $12 , and there is $1 extra for the winter melon tea, so it is very attractive.Also It is a new opening, so there is long queues. I hope that after these two weeks, I try to go there because, in the circle of friends, some of them are saying they are good, some of them are saying they are average. I really want to find the truth by myself

Boba Chicken - Half Price for all drinks

Yesterday, after the church service, we went to the Garden City Food court for lunch. I saw all drinks in Boba Chicken at the food court are half-priced, included all bubble tea and fruit tea! For the regular size drink, that is only about $2.5, for large size, that is only about $3.20. What’s a good deal! Finally, I bought a large size of bubble milk tea with pearl for $3.20. If I bought it from the other shop, that would cost around $7. However, they did not list out when this offer will
be ended.
