A Long Weekend – what to do , lets drive 1.5 hrs to have lunch -fast food burger chain Carl’s Jr. has arrived in Australia and their first location is in the regional , Central Coast town of Bateau Bay. Carl’s Jr. is known for their provocative advertisements featuring Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian and their tagline is also “It’s gonna get messy.”

Well I had the ‘Famous Star with cheese’ – Had the Combo , this had chips -(Fries) and i got the ‘Chocolate Shake’ having had a Carl’s Jr in USA many years ago I wasn’t expecting Much- It was amazing for a fast food burger. McDonalds can be unforgetable , the Chocolate Shake was really nice, it tasted as good as it looked ! My Guest Had the Chargrilled chicken Club it was a Chargrilled chicken, bacon, melted swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a honey wheat bun.his combo came with onion rings and a coke, the chicken was good and thick , other chicken burgers sometimes you can wonder where the chicken is!
They have a great system as its not a huge restaurant , so they worked out a line system. allowing a Few people in at a time and making sure the food has been severed before allowing more people in , our line took 5 mins. This photo is from opening day. Very friendly staff as well ! See below there TV Ads, I guess we might get some interesting TV adds ! Look below
Today went along to ‘The Show’ or as it is known -The Sydney Royal Easter Show, also known as the Royal Easter Show or simply The Show or (to exhibitors) The Royal, is an annual show held in Sydney, Australia over two weeks around Easter. It is run by the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales and was first held in 1823. Queen Victoria, (1837–1901), awarded the society and its show the right to use the word “Royal” in its name. The Show is historically an event where “city meets country” and the rural industries of Australia can be shown and celebrated once a year.
The Show comprises an agricultural show, an amusement park and a fair and combines the elements of each, showcasing the judging of livestock and produce. This comprehensive fair has many competitions including arts and crafts, photography and cookery, as well as tests of strength and skill such as wood chopping. The Show also has shopping, restaurants, commercial stands and exhibits, a horticultural display, a national accredited conformation dog show and cat show, and stage and arena shows. The Show currently attracts more than one million people per year.

Just back from a sample cruise from Sydney to Sydney , what a great ship. It is the biggest ship I have been on in Australia, but not the world. The sample cruise is to give you a taste of Royal Caribbean cruise line. The cruise was good but still prefer princess cruises
There is a great TV show in Australia at the moment called “old school” it stars Brian Brown ( cocktail ) and Sam Neil ( Jurassic Park ) , about an ex crim and retired cop. It’s set around Sydney my home town and it is lots of fun. We have recently moved at work, our old site makes a great police station!
