Second year post graduation and now practicing medicine without restrictions. You know what that means… we can finally apply for Australian permanent residency! The downfall? It’s SO EXPENSIVE. Like, thousands of dollars. Not including the few hundreds of dollars we had to pay additionally for the mandatory health check (and a 1.5 hour drive)!
At least we got fancy disposable gowns for our chest x-rays and nice bandages for our bloods tests 😛
And that evening, we enjoyed some good BBQ from Up In Smoke!
4 options available: beef brisket ($18), pork ribs ($17), pulled pork ($15) and mini sliders ($16). Each are served with 2 of the following sides: creamed corn, coleslaw and roasted sweet potatoes.
Our favourite was the beef brisket – tender and moist with good flavour. The pork ribs were unfortunately just too dry and didn’t fall off the bone. The sides, as you can see, were nothing spectacular – particularly the sweet potato which were quite wet!
With that being said, good value for the price! And yes, we would come back and try again!

For all you who say, “No you’re not!” whenever I say I’m literally going bald… believe me now? It’s for real!

Jess & Jin treated us to something we’ve been meaning to try for a while – 3 in 1 Kitchen. In particular, trying out their Vietnamese subs ($5.90) and fruit smoothies ($5.90-6.90).
As promised, their smoothies were fresh and delicious. You have the option of picking up to 4 fruits and the staff are happy to offer suggestions.
Some of my readers might know, but my mom and aunt used to run THE BEST Vietnamese sub shop in Ottawa. With real, freshl, daily baked crusty Parisian baguettes and every single ingredient (all the meats, garlic mayo, pate, pickles, etc) homemade – 3 in 1 subs just doesn’t compare. I’ve been way too spoiled my entire life. However, for the option of having Viet subs in Rockhampton – these are not bad! They are just no where close to being the best Viet submarines have to offer 😉
Would definitely come back to try their other Asian options including hot curries and noodles!

Homemade burgers at Chez Jin’s! Yummy yummy in our tummy 🙂
For dessert – gelato at the newly opened Gelatissimo at The Terrace! No complaints here!

Drove down to Gladstone today for my first wedding dress fitting! Who would’ve thought a size 0 (zero!) would be too small for me!? Needed to have it taken in more at the waist and of course, hemmed for my height! I mentioned previously, but will be doing an entire wedding series to share my wedding planning experiences and reviews of my vendors – tell you more then!
