Brisbane: Day 03

I am meeting up with Summer today!

Quoted by the boyfriend, ‘It is just so weird to meet up with your long lost friend in another country’.

Dang! I love his big mirror in his bathroom. Plus, there is a bathtub omg!

The boyfriend has his first final exam paper today. Fyi, it is Saturday! Not common to have an exam during weekends, huh? Or maybe it is just me.

Therefore, we took a bus to the city together – his lifestyle here. It took us 40 minutes to reach the city. We (Summer and I) agreed to meet at ten. It was around 9.40AM by the time we reached at the designated place.

DSCN6516 While waiting for her, we dropped by Starbucks Coffee. Can you believe it? The boyfriend purchased a drink from Starbucks! For those who know him well, I believe you know what I am trying to tell you from the previous statement lol

And that’s not it. He had his breakfast there since he was hungry and Summer has not arrived. Oh ya, trust me, the drinks sold in Starbucks here are completely different from what you have in Malaysia. Like totally different! 

Places that she brought me to:

Later, we took a break at La Dolce Vita Caffe. We had a hot chocolate here, recommended by one of her colleagues. She was told that the hot chocolate here is very thick that even the spoon can stand inside the middle of the cup.

We tried and it does!

When it was around lunchtime, we took a bus to Toowong to claim my free buffet lunch at Sizzler.

 Treasury Casino. Was recommended by Summer to come here at night.

That night, it was one of the boyfriend’s brother’s buddies’ be-early 30th birthday. To put it simple, it is a friend’s birthday and we had steamboat for dinner at his place. The boyfriend was very excited and he was able to meet his favourite purebred dog breed, Corgi.

Yeah, you should come. There's good and bad for coming over. The good is you get to experience nice and clean place. The bad is the place is nice and clean that made you realise that M'sia is ugly -_-

Tolanic: Hehe. Thank you! However, I did a bit of basic editing -- to make it brighter and such :)
