Grace browsing thru the menu and ready to order.
Chef special with bugs, king prawns, scallops and barramundi. A plate of rice at the bottom which simmered with the flavours of the seafood. This was one of the best dishes I had on this trip.
Grace takes the honor of having the lobster.

A wall of awards for this place which I understand why after I have been there.
Day 4 – Mexician @ The Aztec

Day 5 – International Cusine @ Sage
Grace is indecisive of what to eat after having tried so many seafood already.
The food finally arrived. First up, Surf and Turf
and then King Prawns Rossitto
Grace: Come on… Can I start?
Day 5 – Dessert @ Caffee Expresso
I don’t remember what this is as I am not really a fan of desserts. I think it is Hazelnut something, but nevertheless, it looks delicious.
But I think Grace is a fan of dessert thou. She is so focus on the cake.
Grace confirms it taste as good as it looks…..yummm…
Day 6 – Chinese @ Golden Legends Malaysian Restaurant
Day 7 – Taste of the local seafood market
We drove to the local seafood market..(well actually it was on the boats)….in a search of some local fresh seafood. We saw this place on the way to Sea World and on that night we saw on TV that the market actually offers “Last night prawns” where the prawns are catch overnight and sell fresh in the morning. So we headed to the market early for some nice fresh prawns on the last day on the trip.
We asked for 1kg worth of prawns please….
Grace and I holding a 1kg worth of last night prawns
Once we got back to our apartment, we are getting ready to cook
Grace prepares the table….Can’t have seafood without any wines, right?
The most relaxing place to have local seafood is on the 42th floor of our apartment.
A quick lightly cook of the prawns then added ice to chill the prawns to avoid overcook.
and now it is the time to eat, Grace and I enjoy our fresh prawns overseeing the riverside.
and we are done… very satisfy. The prawns were very very tasty.
Day 7 – Irish @ Fiddlers Green
Our selections for tonight are Lamb shanks
and BBQ spare ribs
Me: Which one should I choose?
Grace: Can I have both?
Grace chose the spare ribs, picks up the fork, wet her lips and starts to eat.
While I waste no time and use my hands to dig in.
On the night, last but not least before we leave….. a taste of Australian Mango…
Now this should be my longest blog entry with 90+ photos. Hope you enjoyed them as much as we did.
