Brisbane: Day 20

The boyfriend made a plan with his friend, Sam, to visit University of Queensland together on this day. UQ is a top university in Queensland. We took CityCat, a well-known public transportation on Brisbane River, to the Campus.

I have always known that universities with campus are huge but I didn’t know UQ is more than that ‘huge’. Also, UQ is famous of its Great Court, its Business buildings.

The Great Court and its compound

IMG_1212I was told by the boys that they saw the picture above in UQ’s brochure lol How I wish Taylor’s Business School is something like The Great Court as well. Sigh.

IMG_1218Before we continued to explore more, we decided to fill our stomachs at one of UQ’s cafes.

IMG_1219 Latte, which I dislike *yuck*

IMG_1220 The boyfie’s Hot Chocolate, which I exchanged my Latte with lol

IMG_1222 Our Club Sandwich for lunch—fortunately we shared :)

We went to visit UQ’s lake after we filled our stomachs. But guess what? I didn’t know UQ has more than ONE lake. Some more, they are NOT mini mini lakes O.o

Ain’t the lakes beautiful? I wonder if they are just ONES of the lakes of UQ. There should be more lakes I presume. We did not finish exploring the campus, in fact.

Still, it is far better than having a College or University with just a building :(


Anyway, we didn’t end the day just like that. We went to watch our very first movie in Australia. Yes, both the boyfriend’s and my FIRST movie in Australia. In my case, I understand of me having to watch my first movie in Australia but my boyfie?

Having to study in Brisbane for almost six months and have not gone to cinema to watch movie for once lol

I wonder…

cannot blame your bf for not going to watch movie in aus too. The very last time I went to movie in a cinema was last year and i think it was around April last year.
But I just went few weeks ago to watch Transformers :D

Really? lol!

Looks like Transformers brought a lot of profit to cinemas :D
