FADU: Botanic Garden and The Dark Knight Rises

In case you don’t know, FADU = Family Adventures Down Under = here’s what our family is up to while they’re visiting me in Australia!

You may also be wondering why I’m skipping days. Don’t worry, it’s not because I can’t read a calendar! It’s simply because we didn’t do anything exciting enough to take pictures or share with you 🙂

Visited the Brisbane Botanic Garden with Yoni. There we saw pretty flowers, climbed funky trees, took pictures in front of a my beautiful building house and petted super smooth bamboo. We then proceeded to South Bank to watch the much anticipated The Dark Knight Rises. Our group left the cinema with mixed reviews but I thought it was a great movie! Although I do think Batman should not be allowed to qualify as a superhero – he clearly does not have any superpowers. Ended the night with sushi train dinner at Ginga – satisfaction!

FADU: Korean Food and Emergency Shelters

July 17, 2012

Spent a few hours at Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre, then headed into the city for Korean dinner at our favourite – Madtongsan II. My brother treated us all to $0.30 ice cream cones from McDonald’s for dessert… bless his soul! On the way home, we stopped at King George Square where the Emergency Shelter Exhibition was being displayed. More info on that HERE.

FADU: Rugby Union and Park Playing

Gosh, I’m nearly a month behind… how embarrassing. I now have to base my memories on pictures we’ve taken, thank goodness I have those!

Checked out our first Rubgy Union game – St George Queensland Reds v New South Wales Waratahs! And we won! Dinner? Chicken tacos and drinks – yum.

July 15, 2012

Hit the Windsor Park close to home with Tan and Christine for lunch and some fun in the sun! Too windy for badminton but soccer certainly had us panting for air! Such a gorgeous day! In other news, my brothers toe nails are blue courtesy of my mom and sister.

Dinner at home: Gnocchi with garlic bread and eggplant tempura – mmm!
