Day 3 - Movie World

[updated on 11th Nov. 2006]

Gua sungguh the kiasu. It was already bright at 6am yesterday, so I forced myself to wake up an hour earlier this time.

Gold Coast Sky
Ooohhhhh... Niceeeeeeee!

Just like yesterday, the bus picked us up at 8.55am and then dropped us off at Warner Bros. Movie World. It was really nice going back to the childhood memories, watching cartoon characters walking around and hearing all those theme songs being played on air. We took pictures with Batman & Robin as well as The Justice League. We did not go for the rides again but we visited the Looney Tunes Village, Wild West Falls and The Official Matrix Exhibit. We managed to watch almost all the shows like The Police Academy Stunt Show (Oh, this is a MUST!), Looney Tunes Musical Revue, All-Star Parade (featuring Looney Tunes, Willy Wonka, Scooby Do, Shrek, Batman and Catwoman, Police Academy and Austin Powers), Marilyn Monroe Tribute and Bonnie & Clyde. We bought lots of souvenirs from Warner Bros., Superman and Batman shops. We even collected our "Take One" photo frames (which came with our travel package.. Nice!).

Movie World, where movie magic happens everyday

The weather was oh so lovely, too lovely that we got really tanned by the time we took the bus back to the hotel at around 3.30pm. Left our souvenirs in the hotel room and went for a stroll by the beach again. We saw lots of blue coloured jellyfishes and corals washed up to the shores.

Fantabulous time at the beach

After a good long walk, we stopped at Billy Baxter's for a scrumplicious dinner. I was tempted to ask for the kids' menu again even though it was stated that the menu is only applicable to children age 12 and below. But I asked anyway. The waiter looked at me from top to bottom, asked a fellow waitress who also looked at me, and then asked a supervisor who had also looked at me, they finally agreed to let me have the kids menu. It was so funny! Inspector ordered Snitzel Paragiana (basically chicken with lots of cheese and fries), iced lemon tea and VB beer. I got the Mini Pizza with Fries and hot chocolate with marshmallows. It was just nice for me. *Grin*

Yum yum!

On our way back to the hotel, we saw an 'Elvis Presley' singing on the sidewalk (with a basket near him to collect donations.. Hehe..) in front of Hard Rock Cafe. He looked and sounded so much like the real person! He was really entertaining, singing those top hits like (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear (it is now my fav song), All Shook Up, The Wonder of You, Love Me Tender, It's Now Or Never and so many more, got us all dancing or tapping our feet along. There was this moment when a guy walked towards him, took a picture of him and left without donating, so 'Elvis' sang a line or two and added the word "cheapskate" while looking at the guy. Hehe..

The story behind the picture of 'Elvis', the girl and her father was that there was this other girl who accidentally let go of her balloon and she was pretty upset watching the balloon fly into the sky. This girl was so generous, she had 3 balloons with her dad, she took 1 of them and handed to the other girl. All of us went "Aaawwwwwwwwww....". It was really touching. See how naive and innocent children are. If only adults are like that too, the world could be a much better place to live in.

It was yet another lovely and enjoyable day. It will be shopping spree for us tomorrow!
