Surprisingly a good handful of colleagues who also enjoy board games!

A Christmas parade in the summer! We have never seen such a thing so took advantage of the evening off. Michael and I had dinner at Nando’s (always have to remind myself never to go there again… just don’t see the appeal!) right by the road the parade was passing through.

Those poor possibly confused kids – we saw over 5 Santas in that parade! 😛

Certainly nowhere near the extravagance of Christmas parades we are used to but still heartwarming to see all the participants in their vehicles and the families lining the streets to cheer and support!

A farewell tea for one of our favourites – Dr Jama! A long term locum who was moving on to work in Brisbane – everyone was sad to see him go! He was the first supervisor I worked under as an intern and certainly one of the best first experiences as a junior doctor!

Michael also had the chance to work with him, I think we are both on the same page! Sad to see him go!

Lucky for us, since November, Dr Jama has since come back to work again as a medical specialist locum – hooray for us!

Past moments in Gladstone & Rocky!

A few more memories! Haven’t been posted but certainly not forgotten! 🙂

Celebrating one of my fav ladies’ 24th birthday (June 17)! A nice meal at Gracemere Hotel and, of course, cake!

Obviously very happy with the company and the cake 😛

The numerous drives back to Rocky every weekend while we were in Gladstone. Gosh, it was always good to be home and sleeping in our own bed!

Ocean visits! Walking along the beach never gets old with perfect blue skies and good company! Especially when it’s so close by!

Celebrating Kon’s birthday (June 28) with cake, boardgames, and wine!

Plus what better birthday gift than a hockey jersey of your favourite team from your girlfriend? 😛

Making it out to Rockhampton River Festival (July 11) – enjoyed some good food and even watched fireworks in the pouring rain!

And only once in our 10 weeks in Gladstone did we have a visitor – Jin coming down to visit Jess!

But it did make for a pretty darn good breakfast out at lightbox. I mean… check out their breakfast special for $23! Easily one of the tastiest breakfasts I’ve had. And for the first time in Australia, when I answered, “I’d like my eggs over easy please,” they understood exactly what I meant!

Good coffees too, thumbs up lightbox!

IMG_4478

The boys played golf whenever they had the chance – I had a lot of time to take photos on the golf course… enough for a whole post on its own!

Not forgetting to enjoy some good homemade food in Gladstone!

Having Jess and Ian (surg PHO) over for some Viet subs, savoury sticky rice and stir fry!

And being treated to chicken curry and spring rolls made by Ian and Jess, respectively! Yum 🙂

Selfie during our last meal together before Ian heads back to Brisbane! Thanks for being good to us!
