So i went Australia on the 9th-17th sept with the school!
To brisbane and gold coast!
was hoping to meet my cousin over there but apparently the place he was at is an hour airplane ride away from gold coast D:
nevertheless i had fun there even though i missed home like crazy :'(
dearest mummy drove me to the airport :D
mini snack before boarding ze plane!
It's the first time being on a plane and the air stewardess never told us to switch off our phones or to put it in airplane mode!
So i didnt LOL. used my 3G until i lose the signal :(
LOL i still think it's pretty hilarious, not sure if i'm easily amused or everyone else is weird :P
Food always tasted better when it's eaten on the plane up in the air
even the ceiling haz decorations! cho priiiiidddddyyy!!!!!!
reached brisbane and this is what greeted us D:
WHY SO CHEAP?
mind you, it was FREEZING.
checked in and that's the end of our day 1 in aus :B
Started the second day off with a yummy breakfastthe poached egg tasted awful though. the yolk was HARD and not runny at all D:
so we set off to University of Queensland
fell asleep countless of times because i only had 2 hours of sleep D:
imagine reaching aus at 1am aussie time [ aus's two hours ahead of sg]
and then waking up at 6am later on. [ we slept at 4am because we're hero just like that]

We left gold coast and went back to brisbane
where we stayed at ibis hotel again!
head over to the museum on the last few days of staying at Brisbane because we're such arty-farty people
look kinda like singapore with the ferris wheel and all D:
home sick home sick home sick!!HAHAHA appreciation of the arts indeed.
The figures and buildings that Walter has painted are straightforward too just like his choice of colours. Looking through the fog they become shapes without much details.
This painting also has a secret second picture in it. If you turn your head sideways to the left and look very carefully, you might be able to see a face in the water, just in front of the boat on the left of the painting. The artist used this canvas for another picture - a portrait - before he decided to turn it sideways and make this painting of the Thames River."
Because my memory is good like that.
nah kidding, i snapped a picture of the description hehehe but you really can see the face if you look at the center of the painting. gosh.
