Re-visit Antarctica Penguins

The last time we went to Melbourne aquarium to see the Antarctica penguins were 6 months ago. We didn’t have any plan for the day so we went to check out the penguins! ^_^ In addition, we tried to utilize our one year memberships.

Our journey started with a yummy breakfast! We had our breakfast at Central Place which is located behind my apartment. There were a few caf├ęs serving breakfast in that street and it was hard for me to choose which one to go to as their menus were almost the same! Hence, I decided to simply pick one!

I miss the hollandaise sauce so I ordered a breakfast that served with this sauce. Well, they were yummy and I am satisfied! = ) I read an article that a person who eat breakfast will feel better and perform better at work. It is not a good idea to skip breakfast as eating a good breakfast will sets the tone for the rest of the day. So, breakfast is very important!

Oh yeah! This is my favorite!

We reached the aquarium at about 10.45am and the feeding time was at 11.00 am. You can see most of the penguins were swimming in the pool. According to the staffs, the pool had been closed for few days and the penguins were so excited to have the pool back again. The penguins know it was lunch time so they walked towards the staffs who were carrying a bucket of fish.

Lunch time!!!
Come come... eat the fish!

"Hmm... we were satisfied with our lunch! Let's have a walk!" :P

"Oooh... it was so hard to climb up there... "

See, the stingray was smiling to me! (*o*)

Eating out - Japanese Restaurant IV ~Teppanyaki

Friday night! Had teppanyaki with Chai Hoong and Harry at this Japanese restaurant – Ginza. The food was average and the portions are very small too. The teppanyaki set included yakitori, prawn, fish, beef, bean sprout and fried rice. When I looked at the menu, it seemed like a lot to me but actually all the food were just a piece each. (>o<)

Waiting for the chef to show up



A prawn

A fish

A beef (they cut into small pieces)

He was trying to show how well he can cut the eggs and thrown at the customer. (Not sure what is the point) Oh the only point that we can think is wasting the eggs! Also, he thrown the egg pieces to us and we had to catch with our mouths. Everyone managed to catch except me. The egg hit my face! Hmm… embarrassing huh. Hehe :P
Last meal was fried rice. The fried rice was really not good. Hubby said there was no taste at all and Harry said he can cook better. So, you can imagine how bad the fried rice was. He served the fried rice by throwing to us! (This is part of their entertainments for the customers) Everyone managed to catch it nicely but just me again. My fried rice nearly pours out from the bowl when I tried to catch it. Hmm… not a good day. :P
