Queensland Week RACQ Big BBQ

G’day mates! How ya going?

On May 29 to June 6, 2010, Queensland celebrates Queensland Week, the anniversary of their official separation from New South Wales as a colony. And on Sunday, June 6, 2010, they celebrate Queensland Day with the Queensland Week RACQ Big BBQ, a family day out at Roma Street Parkland, Brisbane, from 10:30am to 3:30pm.


It was a beautiful Sunday to spend at the park and though most of the activities were aimed at families with kids, Jason and I still enjoyed chilling out at the park, checking out the gardens, fountains and sunning ourselves on the grass. There was supposed to be a free BBQ but we never found it but that was alright since they had more food stalls to entice my ever hungry stomach. I most definitely enjoyed the churros dipped in dulce leche. Yum! I wish I remembered to take a photo of that yummy little number.

Her bubbles call out to me.

The bubbles beckon me to come closer.

Oh sweet day, surround me with bubbles!

They had all kinds of activities for everyone, even circus workshops and drumming.

Fern Gully was a good movie. They made it into 3D and called it Avatar, that was good too.

We decided to have a walk and explore the rest of the park.

Jason took a moment to take in the park’s natural beauty. That or he blinked when I took the photo.

I thought it was very courteous of the park to provide poop bags for the good citizens of Brisbane.

Oh hello, I spotted my first whale!

And got up close and personal.

It was a pretty exhausting day spent under the glorious sun.

Happy Canada Day

G’day mates! How ya going?

We may be far away but we’re still Canucks Downunder! Jason and I are currently in Sydney, Australia so that Jason can attend Google DevFest 2010. It’s been pretty exciting so far though we are only here for a couple of days, we’ll try to fit in as much of Sydney as possible.

Upon our arrival to Sydney’s Central train station, I spotted someone with a Maple Leaf’s jersey. I cheered and hollered at him “Go Maple Leafs! Yey Toronto.” but he did not look amused at all. I don’t even think he knew what he was wearing. Yet another silliness on my part, but I think it’s just nice to meet other Canadians and fellow Torontonians, even more so.

We hope you all enjoy this glorious Canadian holiday! Until next time, sprinkle hearts!
