Top Leaders Circle in Gold Coast : Day 3 – Sea World

It has been awhile since the last TLC Travelog on my Gold Coast Trip last February 2014.  I can only blame that on the fact that I was too lazy to edit and choose the pictures from the trip.

Anyway, here goes…

Our group’s itinerary for the 3rd day in Gold Coast was to enjoy ourselves at the Sea World!




There were various shows running at different time slots throughout the park.  Since we were in a large group, our tourist guide advised us to watch all the shows first before exploring the park on our own.

It was typical of us, the Top Leaders Circle, to defy our tourist guide and sempat pose everywhere before the poor guy had to rush us to the auditorium.

The first show of the day was the Fish Detectives Sea Lion Show which runs daily at 10:15AM and 2:30PM.  It was about  cheeky sea lions ‘Buddy’ and ‘Clawde’ and ‘Big Al Baloney’ in a fishy tale.

They actually sell this thirst quenchers at AUD15 per bottle, which is refillable throughout the day in Sea World and Movie World.


There are also snow cones, which is a welcome in the hot summer weather in February.


The next show that we saw was the Imagine Dolphin show that runs at 11:15AM and 3:30PM daily.






After the superb dolphin show, we break for an all-you-can-eat buffet fish and chips lunch at the Sea World Resort Restaurant.

After the heavy lunch, we headed towards the final show in our agenda, The Jet Stunt Extreme, which features some of the world’s best jet ski performers.  We took the Sky High Skyway from the resort toward the main entrance where the jet ski was to be performed.



Right after the show, we split up into smaller groups to explore Sea World!  Sambil jalan we bumped into Patrick and of course we didn’t miss the photo opt when we see one.


Next it was the time to feast the thrill seekers in us.  We jumped on most of the rides, but this one, the Storm Coaster, left us with 1001 memories. Ada yang dah nak naik tetiba nak pegi toilet la, ada yang memang kecut perut from the start la, ada yang pura-pura takut la… and many more…


This picture says is all….


We survived the ride!!!


Before we left, we made a pit stop to the Shark Bay where you can actually touch the sharks! No, I didn’t have the guts to even get into the capsule.




Most pictures are courtesy of CDM Al-Faath as all my pictures in my phone got wiped out when my phone went dead a few month after the trip (another reason why I delayed the update).

We had to rushed back to the hotel early for the day to clean up for the Gala Dinner that very same night.  Will update about the dinner separately.

Top Leaders Circle in Gold Coast : Day 1 – The Departure

It has been over a month since the trip, however the memories are still vivid in my mind.


My very first FREE trip with the Top Leaders Circle…


Happy sangat because this was our first trip since we got kids.  So kira macam 2nd honeymoon la after almost 6 years of marriage.  And it was FREE!

We were scheduled to depart from KLIA to Brisbane via Singapore on the 13th of February 2014 at around 10pm.  After sorting out the logistics for our kids, we finally left for the airport at around 5pm… Yes during the rush hours…


Alhamdulillah sempat sampai airport by 6pm at the time scheduled by our Tour Guide to collect the itinerary and travel details.

Monopod time…. This is the trip that introduces me to the meaning of “group selfie”…

The trip from KLIA to Changi took about 45 minutes and this time around we were booked on the Silk Air flight that was code sharing with SIA to Brisbane.

Hubby and I didn’t manage to get our dinner at KLIA and was so thankful that the Company had arranged for everyone on the trip to receive a SGD20 Changi Airport voucher that entitles us to redeem it at any store in Changi Airport. Alhamdulillah… I was seriously shocked as never in my 10 years working life that the companies that I had worked for actually gave me vouchers/pocket money for me to spend during airport transits. Mind you I had travelled quite a bit during my time in one of the GLCs and had spent quite a number of hours in Changi Airport… but I had to spend my own pocket money la kan…

Since there were 2 of us, so we had SGD40 to spend. Unfortunately, our connecting flight was due to depart in an hour time.  Hence, there was no time to spare to roam the mall, though I wished I could peaked into the Pandora store or even all the other great stores that they have in Changi Airport Mall.  So we just spent 1 voucher for iced coffee and sandwiches and saved the other for our trip back home…

Our connecting flight to Brisbane was a Singapore Airline plane.  I super love flying with Singapore Airline as their service is top notch.  I remember the time when I flew on Singapore Airline to Japan to visit my sister and they actually served Haagen Daaz ice cream for dessert! And during another trip to Istanbul few years back, I had the privileged to travel on Business Class as it was a company paid trip.  The meal served on board during that trip was fabulous!

It was actually great that the Company had arranged for a night flight as we would be able to start the next day fresh and ready to discover Gold Coast.  I was made to understand that all the trips are arranged as such to maximise the time for the tour. Memang best and untung sangat travel with the Company.  Everything has been arranged for us from the flight, transit, transport, accommodation, food and also programs. We just have to follow the timing, bawak baju and duit for shopping aje… I LIKE!

Wait for my next entry on Day 2 in Gold Coast, Australia…

Till then, enjoy the video…
