    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.

    ... shark underwater viewing gallery. It was a giant tank with huge sharks, stingrays and an array of multicoloured fish, all swimming around in brilliant blue water. I could have stayed there most of the day! We left a good hour at the end of the day for the girls to go on the smaller fairground style rides. This was a good move, as the girls had the rides pretty much to themselves and went on each ride 2 or three times. We finally managed to prize Alice off the carousel and I ...

    ... we hit some really beautiful countryside and in this setting was the house. Some white man came out to greet us all and I was rather surprised he wasn't Chinese! Turns out he lives there with his mum and they were hosting this lunch for their friend's birthday. There was no BBQ in the end! But I ate a lot of food, mainly dessert haha I think I had about 4 helpings of it. I had a nice time sitting amongst the Cantonese and ...

    ... afternoon we went into Brisbane City to meet Terry and took the Catamaran up the river during daylight and back down during nightlight so was great to see the sights in different light. We then met Terry's son Julian and his girlfriend and went to Vapiano (an Italian where you queue up and the food is cooked in front of you).
