Hello, Queensland (Part 2)
The next day, we left from Hervey Bay back to my uncle's place in Redland Bay.
Sunnies : H&M / Shirt : Cotton On / Bottom : FOREVER 21 / Sandals : Vincci
Stopped by River Heads for some sightseeing.
River Heads is a ferry terminal for ferries from the main island to Fraser Island.
On the way, there were some small boutiques in the town centre and I bought two halter neck cropped tops from a boutique called ICE. 2 for 10AUD! STEAL!
On the way, we stopped by Rainbow Bay for lunch.
We also attempted to look for Mother Nature's best kept secret - a small part of the beach with a blow hole & actual rainbow coloured sand.
Sadly, tourist maps and google didn't help. We got lost hiking up and down some random trail behind the houses by the beach. It was terrible haha we were not dressed for such a hike and my sandals almost fell apart :(
Had lunch at some fish & chips cafe. Loved it!
The drive back to Redland Bay was a long one. Reached back only in the evening.
The next day, we left for Movie World and spent the whole day there. The last time I was here was when I was 6/7. It's literally been 10 years, it's crazy! Now it's Damien's turn. He's 7 this year.
My first ever roller coaster ride was this Scooby Doo one. Rode it again with my mom!
Damien dragged and encouraged dad to sit on an amateur roller coaster with him haha! This is literally his second time on a roller coaster. The first time was with my mom on their honeymoon! Dad's usually behind the camera and with the bags :p

After spending the whole day in Movie World, we went back to prepare dinner for the family.
The next day, we headed to Sea World.
I enjoyed Sea World more than Movie World surprisingly. I enjoyed interacting with the animals and also the amazing dolphin show.
There were a few rides in Sea World but I only went on a few exciting ones. Didn't have any pictures taken tho.
After Sea World, we headed to Surfer's Paradise since it was nearby.
Shirt : Cotton On / Bikini : Triangl / Bracelet : Lokai
Went for a swim and played some frisbee with my mom & brother while watching the sunset.
After sunset, we were asked to leave the beach by the lifeguards. My family & I then went around trying to look for an Asian restaurant but failed miserably. We ended up at MCD...zzz
The next morning, we headed to Sunnybank (Asian Town) because my grandma desperately misses food back at home.
Food was pretty good. I must admit I kinda missed Chinese food as well.
After my grandma's satisfying lunch, we left for Gold Coast. We had a river cruise to board and some sightseeing to do.
The river cruise wasn't as nice as the one I experienced in London. This wasn't the main river in the city. The only attractions were nice houses by the bay that costs a minimum of 6 million AUD. Tea wasn't exactly proper either. It was just self service packed crackers, dips and coffee/tea from sachets. Not complaining but it wasn't exactly worth it.

After the river cruise, we left for Brisbane port and had street food at Eat Street Market for dinner.
Inspired by Asian markets but even better. They converted shipping containers into little food stalls. A ton of international & unique foodies are available in Eat Street Market. Live entrainment is available as well. It was slightly pricey but it's not our typical pasar malam/hawker so it's expected :p
I didn't manage to take a lot of photos because it started raining but nevertheless, I enjoyed my various meals there.
The next morning, we left for Westfield, Carindale to have dim sum with my parent's friends for the last time. The restaurant was called Yum Cha and it was really popular. GO CHINESE!!!
Food was delicious and portions were big!
Damien definitely has a crush on Megan. Parent's friends' youngest daughter.
I did some last minute shopping and got some souvenirs for my friends.
Got this Halter Turtle Neck Knit Top from Ally Boutique.
My cousins are literally 80% all over the world, eurasian and Damien's age. I feel like everyone's aunty more like anything else. Oh wells, age gap probs. Nevertheless, I had fun with the little ones even though they were way too energetic for me to keep up.
Spent the last morning going to Woolworths, Coles & K-Mart to stock up before heading back to KL.
Love this pair of joggers! Saw the exact same one from H&M for RM60-80? Got the exact same pair at 12AUD only!
This was highly recommended by Hannah & the sales assistant in store so I decided to give it a try. It's supposed to be a really good AU NATUREL ointment!
Bought a ton of healthy goodies for the next few meals in school. I'm excited!
Bought this really cute lunchbox from Smiggle as well. Can't wait to bring home cooked meals to school. SO DONE WITH SCHOOL FOOD.
Left for the airport at 5pm. Returned the car and boarded the plane at 11pm. En Route to SG! Transited and then headed back to KL.
