Kak Rose's Homestay, Gold Coast

Our 2014 Eid-Adha celebration is different this year. Instead of having our 'jamuan raya' at Kak Zai's house like we always do, we decided to celebrate it at Brisbane and Gold Coast, with all 6 Toowoomba families.


After Eid prayer, we convoyed to Brisbane, picnic raya at Parklands Southbank. I made pulut kuning with beef rendang. The kids played in the pool and later, we took the free ferry ride along Brisbane River.


Had some chocolaty dessert at Max Benner's:

We reached Kak Rosmini and Abang Daniel's Homestay in Gold Coast at 5 PM. Their hospitality is superb! Meals are included in the package and it feels exactly like spending time in a relative's home. If you are planning to visit Gold Coast and needs a place to stay, do contact Kak Rose by checking out her website:

Our bedroom for the night:


Raya dinner served hot and fresh:


The daddies enjoying their hearty meals - rice with lamb curry, sausages, ikan masin, potato wedges etc...


All six families in the living room, with a total of 14 kids... 90% of them are toddlers!


A little garden in front of the homestay, isn't it gorgeous?

Before, going back to Toowoomba, we went for the compulsory shopping trip at Harbour Town, which is about 5-10 minutes from the homestay and headed to Brisbane to IKEA. Hasben daydreaming:


Had our dinner at a Malaysian restaurant in Calamvale (not impressed with the customer service for the umpteenth time, will probably not go there anymore).

Anyways, Eid Mubarak to everyone! (^u^)~
