As some of you guys may know, I absolutely adore Australia.

I have been traveling there yearly since 2005 and I get withdrawal symptoms if I do not head over to Australia yearly. It seems like this year, I won't be able to travel to Australia due to my current financial situation (need.to.find.a.job.soon).

And look at what I've stumbled on. Nuffnang is currently having a contest and they're giving away 2 free tix to Aussie-land! So here's my contest entry!

I choose Queensland as the state I would like to visit as it's one of my favourite state with its beautiful beaches and scenic nature sites!

The Come Walkabout package that I've chosen is the Pacific Coast Touring Route, a six days package.

The six days would consist of a Brisbane - Fraser Island - Whitsundays - Townsville - Cairns route.

Despite being to Queensland twice, I have never been to those places before and this time if I do win this trip, I'll be bringing my fantastic mum.

My mother despite being in her fifties has to be one of the most adventurous mothers out there. She'll be traveling to China soon and she was my traveling companion during my 2 weeks trains-only trip in Asia after graduation then. Sometimes she even goes clubbing with her colleagues! o.O

She's my Super Mom. 🙂

Since her birthday is in June, I hope to be able to win this trip and bring her there as a birthday present.

Here's what we'll do if we win the package.

We'll eat till we drop with the delish food in Aussie.

I'll bring her to my favourite pancake place in Brisbane.

and we'll definitely gobble down the fresh seafood. We'll savour the seafood there, which is fantastic. My mum ADORES oysters, crabs and prawns and I bet with the experience there, she'll never look at Singapore's seafood the same way again.

We'll visit the lovely animals like the kangaroos and all. Perhaps "molest" a few koalas, tasmanian devils and wombats while we are it.

And we'll try out all of the water sports available! I can't imagine my mom jet skiing but knowing how gungho she is, I bet she'll do an even better job than me! I would love for her to try surfing, there is so many things that she hasn't had the chance to try and I would love for her to try them!

Wish me (and my mum) luck!

I'll ensure that there will be a trip report if I do win!

We had some free time after all the tiring activity BUT we had an obligation to fulfil.

But before that, we said our goodbyes to our fabulous host for the whole Gold Coast-Sunshine Coast-Brisbane leg, the fabulous Jane!

She's really a gem. Always thoughtful, friendly and a joy to be around with. Am so missing her! 🙁

After saying our tearful goodbyes, we had to head over to South Bank Parklands for a LIVE show. (all previous times were recorded!)

The jocks doing their thing.
