30 Nov 2009 – Last day in Nov
CBR, Australia is actually the capital; looking forward to explore it tomorrow. Arrived Sat via Brisbane/BNE and believe it or not, had to pay A$5 for the train from BNE International Airport to the Domestic Airport (just 1 stop). Connected with QantasLink to CBR. Bought back memories from late 1980s when I worked in Orlando/Florida for Delta Commuter/ComAir.
But all worth it to see grand-niece Kiera CHUA at the airport. Patricia LAM & Albert CHUA now lives in CBR where he is SIN High Commissioner. Such an honour to be their guest. Ivy is also here visiting and had a wonderful weekend. Sat: dinner at and Italian restaurant Mezze Lire*** Sun: fantastic shopping at Old Bus Deport Markets set in an old industry building with a variety of hand-crafts & gourmet food and fresh produce. Lunch at Lambert Vineyards** poor service, food & wine so-so; but when in the good company of family, anything else are minor issues!

What a shame I didn’t know you were coming via Brisbane – would have popped out to the Airport to say hello.
Yes, paying the $ to get from one terminal to another is “quaint”. 🙂
hope your visit is fun.
What a great blog. I spend days on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an amazing post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.
Thank you and hope that you will continue to enjoy reading http://amylamsg.wordpress.com
