Today I’ll be here featuring the 6 days home of us in Gold Coast.
It would be a wise choice if you choose to explore this little town by your own. Everything is convenient which is truly can be called as Free and Easy.
Our Hotel : Backpackers in Paradise
Yen had pre-booked the hotel thru their website, we go for the One Room Apartment, where its air-conditioned, complete with toilet and kitchen.
We arrived in Gold Coast around 8am Australia Time. The airport transfer dropped us right in front of our hotel and we’ve waited eagerly for the check-in. 3 of us feels collapsed but its not due to jet lag , its just that we could not get a good rest in the plane.
Blame AirAsiaX for giving us such a discomfort seat!
Sigh!What to do, you get what you pay!
This is the Apartment that we’ve booked earlier. We got one unit upstairs. It looks more like my grandma’s kampung house. That’s my very first impression.
The check-in procedure makes me feel that Gold Coast does not welcome Asians. The receptionist are mostly young people. They don’t really entertain us, the Asians. From their service attitude, its proven, they are quite racist.The big boobies ladies only entertain those beach boys visitor, while looking at us the yellow-ish skin people, they don’t even give a glance!
The poor thing is we felt like cheated as they told us its now the Peak Season, okay, it’s Easter Holiday, so they have to increase the room rate. They have no right to call the rate without notifying the customers in advance. We have all our booking confirmation, but we are just tired of argument, so just don’t give her a damn! It will just spoil our holiday mood.
Before we could go out and explore this little town, its better for us to get some rest in this kampung house. See, this is the bedroom of Yen & I.Ooops sorry I forget to clean up the bed.
The toilet seems to be very simple, which at first I feel its a little bit unhygiene. Okok. Kampung House, cannot compare with 5 star hotel.
This is the living room, which the sofa was turned into a bed, which is for Eet. Poor boy… but its equipped with TV and Aircond. While we in the room don’t even have airconditioned.
From the other corner, there is the Kitchen equipped with all the kind of utensils. Even if you want to bake a cake also can! At least this makes me feel worth for paying so much.
This is the balcony view, hmm, just the other residential suite next door.
Life in Gold Coast is real bored. I feel myself like an old nanny here. We don’t have internet access in our room, so we have to entertain ourselves everyday. Hmm…
Their TV programmes were mostly news during the day time, I could only catch up good movies at night.
What else, reading my readers digest to kill time, while Yen crazy about her Sudoku..
How about him? He is the TV operator all night long. Getting bored.. getting bored..
One good thing about renting this Apartment, at least we can cook at home. We do have home meal almost everyday!
Tada! This is the best meal , Eggs + Ham, Vege + Maggie Curry (Made in Malaysia). Hmm, don’t play play, at least it saves us a few bucks!
Hey, wait a minute, we do have visitors here in Gold Coast.
Hi, this is MeoW meoW! ~ haha, she didnt tell me her name la..
She is fury and fat! The cats are even friendlier than those receptionist downstair.
Meow Meow trying to peep us, seeing what’s cooking inside. Sorry la, no fish today! We only have Maggie Mee…
Although from the first impression, it was quite disappointing. But after the 6 days stay here, I feel that I’ve get used to it. Although the receptionist are not friendly, but why do I have to bother so much. Just take it easy..
Coming up, I’ll be cover up my visits to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and also the exciting Theme Parks!
This is where I wait for my pre-booked shuttle bus service everyday, but everyday we also miss the bus!
Look, the weather seems so good!
Bah! Catch me soon.. I’m going to catch my bus before it rains!
