So I went back to Gold Coast for my final stop before I flew back to Malaysia. Finally, I was getting restless to be honest, and I couldn't wait for my move to Thailand after my Australia trip.
This time I met up with Jon, a charming 18 year old that looked like a 21 with a quirky childish and funny personality.
We took a drive to the pier to feel the chilly wind and watch the sunset.
Saw some people caught octopus with fishing rod, which was a first, for me and them.
It was pretty cool until they took a knife out and sliced the octopus in half cause it was sticking everywhere.
Gold Coast was a great place to do any sort of water activities, one of the most intriguing (at least to me) water sport was wind surfing,
if not for the weather, I would have been the first in line (and probably the only one) to run down the beach and ask those beach hunks to teach me how to wind surf on the spot!
(I told myself back then: If I ever had the chance in the future, I am so going to pick up wind surfing, after snowboarding)
Anyway, I am going to write about this building that Jon took me, which was supposed to be iconic in Gold Coast. Most people who've been here would know about Q Deck, but I supposed not all has been up there before.
What I liked about this building was that it claimed to be the World's Tallest Residential Building.
The claim, in my opinion, was really priceless. I mean, it's funny how people can find almost any statement just to sell. Like how Malaysia claimed our twin tower to be the World's Tallest Twin Towers, like duh, how many really tall twin towers you can find out there anyway.
You know what? I bet any randomly picked millionaire can build his own World's Tallest Decaplets Residential Pink Towers, nay, make it easier, Pink Polka Dot Houses.
Which could could be what? Made of 2-storeys? Heck I can even create my very own world record which consists of toothpicks and dog's fur.
That day I was at the Perth's airport and I saw the duty free claiming itself to be Perth's Largest Tax Free Shopping Destination at the duty free area. HA HA. Like they have a lot of competitions to start with anyway. -.-
Ciken I can even claim to have the biggest man-made chocolate pool in Melaka, which could be the smallest pool you've ever seen. Just let me find a really big laundry pail.
Ok, enough being mean.
It's still pretty impressive. *though it doesn't look that tall to me* *cough*
But I have to give full credit to its lift, which claimed to be one of the world's fastest lifts, and I was really impressed/shocked by the speed the lift was able to go up.
First we got two tickets.
Then we got in the lift
The speed of the lift was so fast that even the camera couldn't capture the number on the display screen in time.
The number was increasing ever so fiercely speedy it was impossible to catch just one number at a time.
And then we were on the 77th floor in a jiff.
View of Gold Coast atop was beautiful.
Well, surfer's paradise to be exact. (it's the name of a place in gold coast if you think surfer's paradise is a metaphor here)
I like the fact that the city was so close to the sea, side by side, next to each other, civilization versus nature.

If you must know, kangaroo, wallaby and the Tasmanian devil are all under the Marsupial family. And they're Australia's most iconic animals.
Firstly because they're everywhere, other than Tasmanian devils because they're mostly found in Tasmania and was populating the place like rats to sewers until a plague years ago which nearly wiped them to extinction.
Despite their stereotypes from Looney Tunes, the Tasmanian Devils are really cute animals that made a lot of noisy sounds and are really timid. Scare them once and they'll run away. LOL.
