entry GC Day 3 will resume insyaallah tmrw
.
.
ok...i received a comment at my previous entry...from ms/mr Anon...
"...Anonymous said...
just a Q; is mud crab considered halal?
May 28, 2009 1:25 PM..."
.
.
terkejut jugak i after reading his/her question as above...as i mmg mengaku i nie sangat jahil dlm banyak bab n segi ;(
so when i read that question, i jumped...as i thought mud crab nie seafood n same like our normal crab...dalam hati "erksssss...i dah consume somethg yg non-halal ke???"...
n alhamdullillah now with just a click away, u can know the answer...
i referred to JAKIM official website
.
.
to clarify mr/ms. Anon's kemusykilan
"...Ketam Nipah bukanlah daripada jenis reptilia dan amfibia, tetapi ia adalah dari jenis rustasia iaitu sama golongan dengan udang dan kerang.
Keseluruhan edaran hidupnya adalah di dalam air dan mempunyai sistem pernafasan melalui insang dan bukan paru-paru. Ia bernafas menggunakan oksigen dalam air sebagai pelarut.Kehidupan ketam Nipah di darat hanya dalam tempoh masa yang singkat sahaja iaitu lebih kurang 2 atau 3 hari, kerana dalam insangnya mempunyai satu ruang pintu yang boleh ditutup dan mengandungi sedikit air.
Ia menggunakan air tersebut untuk pernafasan dan sekiranya air itu kering ia akan mati.
Oleh itu dari segi hukum Ketam Nipah adalah binatang yang boleh dimakan..."

n thanx to Anon for bringing up the matter...
n alhamdullillah JAKIM is well prepared w the answer...

Our GC Trip Day 2!

arghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
its the CRAB MONSTER
!!!
.
.
hehehehhehe
NOT
!!!
thats the captain for our
CRUISE TOUR
!!!
@
.
.
the 2nd day started with a brekkie at one of the 'tepi jalan cafe'...
seriously sunday morning at surfers paradise sangat lengang!
only few cafes je yg bukak...so its quite hard to find halal breakfast...
we stopped over @ McD, but nothing fancied us...the only breakfast meal that we can have was the pancake ;p
then we proceed abit further south to find this small cafe...the "Australia Carvery" its located near the junction to Conrad Hotel...
they serve quite a variety of veggie breakfast n other big american breakfast...
so we opted for baked potato & veggie pasta
.
.
perut dah kenyang baru boleh enjoy the trip eit!
;)
.
.
once arrived at the center, there were only 2 cars...
so we thought it was only a small group...
dalam hati, hmmmm "takde la glamour sangat this catch-a-crab cruise nie"
then i started to snap away!
in between 10-15mins ade la one mpv and another car masuk...
and suddenly we saw a BIG tour bus entered the center!
and there were about 40 more tourist (taiwanese) joining the cruise!!!
terus telan balik kate2 i!
hahahhaha
in total about 55 people on board!
sangat havoc and chaotic ok!
and definitely FUN!
.
.
we managed to get the front seat together with another chinese malaysian group of 4
they were ALL fun n happy spirit group!
.
.
after for about 15mins cruise, we were given a bucket of fish to feed the wild seagulls and pelicans...
seriously agaks horror, since i takut they bite my hand ;p hahahhaha
the seagulls infact flew just about an inch over my head in the attempt to get the fish!
serious tak takut punye seagulls!
they will just grab it out off ur hand in miliseconds!
.
.
so after all the fish dah habes, then the pelicans n seagulls dok diam!
.
.
then we stopped at this river bed for the hunt of YABBIES!
seriously that was the 1st time i heard of it...
so pegi la 55 org turun mencube nasib mencari ape itu yabbies...
termasuk la penggali berjaya dibawah nie...hehehhe
bile dapat je SEKOR (not ours), pergh kecoh nye bukan main lagieeeeeeeee!!!
tengok2 it was actually baby yabbies!
and those above were the fruits of penggalian orang lain...
OURS?!?!?!?!
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
hanya lah SE-EKOR BABY MUD CRAB yg tak cukup baligh lagie!
hahahhahhahahahha
cute tak?!
n sangat pathetic kan ;p hehehhe
.
.
then we proceed with our cruise and 15mins later we stopped for the main highlight for the day!
CATCH A CRAB
!!!
mr.doc volunteered...
i thought catching it with bare hand, but i was wrong...they actually set a trap and mr.doc helped them to pull em up ;D
and our trap managed to catch 2 BIGGGGGGGGGG MUD CRABS!
small!?!??!?!?!
HOW ABOUT THIS!
its hugeeeeeeeee!!!
the claw sangat sharp n cepattttt je nak ketip2...
so they taught us the correct way to hold em...
(note : did u know that the force of the crab's claw is 500psi!!! dalam erti kate mmg confirm hancur jari n putus tangan!!!)
thats as per their claim la kan...
but i do percaye!
;D
.
.
next activity was kesukaan mr.doc...
FISHING
!!!
mmg confirm dapatttttttttt!!!
in just 10mins, mr.doc managed to catch 3 ekor!!!
if collect kan satue cruise nye hasil tangkapan boley la bukak pasar ikan!
hehhehehehe
happy sangat cinta hati ku itew!
mr.doc with the captain!
n thats the end for the cruise...all in all, it took about 2.5hours!
to those yg dah booked crab lunch will be served at the center...
(pix from the official website)
and seriously all the mud crabs yg ditangkap tadie was actually our lunch!
they cooked it on spot (atas cruise) and turun2 je lunch already served...
mr.doc ordered "Seafood Basket"
.
.
ladyverde nie hantu CRAB!
seriously i korek sampai no more, i repeat NO MORE isi!!!
and i was indeed the last person to leave the table!!!
hahahahhahahaha.
.
and darlings...I TRIED THE OYSTER!!!
FRESH OYSTER yeeeee!!!
n I LOVE IT!!!
;D
seriously
i thought i couldnt consumed it, but I DID!!!
it tasted like kerang rebus!
thats how my mouth interpret it
hehehhe
mr.doc siap dah prep kan the oyster with lemons...byk jugak la die letak coz he thought i will throw up once it touches my tongue...
so now i can strikethrough one of my 'list-to-do' before im 30!
hahahahhaa
.
.
so thats it for our "CATCH A CRAB" Cruise Tour
those yg interested to experience it on ur next trip to GC, can get the details n visit thru their website at http://www.catchacrab.com.au/
a rather different experience...
something new that we never done before
;D
how much does it cost?
AUD 55 per person for the cruise
& AUD48 for the Seafood Basket
(they have quite a variety of lunch set jugak, n price die lain2)
.
.
we left the center around 1.30pm...
on our way back, mr.doc drove to Robina Town Center
did some groceries n shopping there
;D
.
.
sampai je surfers paradise, we had another round to the center n mostly strolling down the designer boutiques!!!
n that night itself i experienced somethg new...
the "1st time experience in my whole life"...
Thanx Darling!
and what was that?!?!?!
'BIAR LAH RAHSIA'
HEHEHHEHHEHEHEHEHEHE

Our GC trip Day 1!

hey there dudettes...
as promised...
so here goes the pix for our previous trip to Gold Coast...
pic from here
.
.
being us, we rather opt for free n easy trip...
not that we dont like going for package...
but for countries yg easy to go about, no communication barrier we rather venture on our own...
plus no time constraint, not that hectic, no stress as we can take our own sweet time...
.
.
i'll go by day yah
so here goes
.
.
DAY 1
....................
we infact booked for our flight almost a year ago...
just to grab the promotion rate...
alhamdullillah that time we only paid RM900 per person for the full return flight ticket with AirAsiaX
our flight was at 9 somethg at night...
i even went to work that day...silly me...i should have amek cuti so as not that terkocoh2 n gelabah excited...hehhehe

but alhamdullillah...
being frequent travellers, packing main campak2 je the night before...not that efficient n effective la tapie...belasah je...alhamdullillah mr.doc is excellent n brilliant in packing stuff ;D
things that would take me about 2-3hrs to pack, he can finish it off in 30mins...thats why slalu nye its me that needs to sort my stuff dulue n put it aside once im done n mr.doc will finish it off!
hehehhehe
we arrived the next day around 7.20am...the trip took around 8hrs...touched down kat Gold Coast Airport, Coolangata
personally mr.doc n me dont fancy the comfortness through out the flight...maybe becoz we r big size n big frame couple, so its quite uncomfortable...and then, the seats cannot be reclined...it can only be slided down right which will then reduce the leg room pulak ;(
owh well...with RM900 return rate sempit sikit pon sempit la kan...ehhehehe
.
.
owh yah...at the custom clearance, we didnt encounter any problem...yes we do head down to the red lane to declare food stuff that we brought with us...
we declared :
49 chilli sauce sachets (lepas!)
ice lemon tea 3-in-1 sachets (lepas!)
tid bits maruku (lepas!)
tid bits popia kecik inti serunding prawn (lepas!)
and
2 cadbury chocolate 3-in-1 sachets (CONFISCATED!)
hahahhaha...
mmg dah tau tp saje nak test...
but fret not darling...
mr.doc actually dah spread the rest of coffee n chocolate 3-in-1 dlm luggage n we actually declared 2 packets je...
so yg lain tue selamat lepas...
alhamdullillah!
further more its for personal usage...nak minum pepagi bangun tido before head down for breakfast n some hot chocolate drink before off for bed!
.
.
after custom clearance we head down to the meeting point where we were told by the car hire company...
since my brother has been to GC a month before our trip, they suggested us to hire "East Coast Car Rentals"
they also cover melbourne, cairns, brisbane...
very reliable, very efficient, no frills and above all, among the cheapest car hire agent in gold coast...
we were brought to their warehouse about 5mins from the airport...convenient!
ramai jugak la org hire...about 6 cars were taken mase we registered...dlm internet mcm cikai je company die...but looking at how professional they work and handle customer, i rest my case ;p
.
.
we opted for an auto compact car...as per internet we picked toyota yaris (2-doors)...alhamdullillah our rezeki, they upgrade it to a compact 4-doors toyota corolla at the same price...
all together with insurance premium coverage, 5days hire : AUD307!
no extra charge for over milage, kire milage unlimited...no catch whatsoever!
highly recommended!
.
.
so after dah settle all the documents, we head downsouth to tweed river...nak confirm booking for our "catch a crab" tour...
quite a sunny n beautiful saturday morning!
we stopped over at Hungry Jack's for breakfast...
mr.doc had his much awaited pancakes! n tea...and the lady had vegie burger meal!!! n apple juice...hehehehhe puas hati sedap die!
after settled our stuff at the "catch a crab" tour, we headed north balik to Surfers Paradise for early check in to our hotel...
we booked
The Courtyard by Marriott Surfers Paradise Resort
we opted for this hotel since it was a strategic hotel smack right at the center of surfers paradise!
turun bawah je ade shopping mall (Centro Mall), ade woolworth (where we can get our groceries), ade hard rock cafe, 2mins walk to DIOR, Ferragamo, Tiffany&Co., 5mins away to the famous Surfers Paradise beach, 10mins away to LV, Prada, Hermes & Gucci!
hahahhahahha
harus la itu criteria yg paling penting kan...hehehehe
.
.
we had the city view...
price wise quite reasonable jugak...
5 nights, kingbed, small pantry area n basic necessity cost us AUD500 plus...then the whole evening we spent by strolling down the surfers paradise n jln2 dlm the centro mall...
.
.
for dinner
we opted for malaysian cuisine!
hahahhaha tak sampai 24hrs dah rindu nasi!
hehehehhe
so malaysian!
so we headed down across the hotel about 4mins walk to 'Maharani Seafood Restaurant'
mr.doc had lamb briyani and for the lady, i had nasi goreng kampung...
look simple tapi sungguh yummylicious!
mmg sebijik masakan melayu...owner pon actually melayu but dah PR kat sane...my nasik cukup pedas die, cukup belacan die...fresh shrimp byk tak lokek!
mr.doc's lamb briyani pon not bad!
price wise jgn cite la kan...sal dah lapar nak nasik sangat, we dont mind paying extra for that kind of hefty n delicious meal!
.
.
after perut dah kenyang suke hati, ape lagie...jalan2 around town to burn up the calories balik...
but unfortunately terjumpe mcD n ordered myself a Frozen Coke!
goshhhhhhh so brain-freeze-slurpy drink! lupe nak amek pics...
.
.
and then we headed to hard rock cafe...bought some stuff then trus balik bilik...here certain days the shops close around 5.30pm -6pm...but for friday n saturday abit lambat sket...n friday n saturday la most of the shops tutup lambat around surfers paradise!
dear, night life die till 3-4am!!!
seriously!
mmg penuh be it tourist n locals...all the cafes, bars, eateries penuh!
.
.
that night itself, we got ourselves a Hard Rock Cafe Surfers Paradise fridge magnet cum bottle opener!
kewl ade gamba kangaroo
and mr.doc and me fall in love with these two fridge magnets...mr.doc pilih the fish...and i pilih yg sea horse!
tho takde tulis ape2 but we were mesmerized by the diamante!
somethg unique that we didnt have yet as a fridge magnet ;D
.
.
so thats all for DAY 1...
we ended up asyik terjage2 mase tido since the night life kat bawah hotel sangat havoc n meriah! hehehhehe...till 4am then everythg was quiet calm n peaceful
;D
gotta wake up early tmrw for crab catching!
