BUT I still got 2 chips left, after walking around, decided to head back to the Wheel to place one chip on a second last longshot, 23 to 1 odds (longest was 47 to 1). KAA-CHING!! Longshot worked, I won back my $$$ and I figured I better stop while I'm ahead. So I pretty much broke even on my first nite at an Aussie casino. ;)
BUT that's not the end of our casino adventure! The casino restaurant was having a members' special, A$9.99 lobster meal. Non-members pay A$19.99. So guess what, two of my friends decided to join the casino! Yes, just for the cheap lobster meal, hah! Membership was free and instant too so they signed up.
I thought of not ordering the lobster since I couldn't get the member price but luckily our waiter explained that we only needed one member at the table for everyone to enjoy the offer.
On our last nite, we grabbed dinner at the little restaurant down at our apartment cos we needed to head right to the airport after that. I had the baked pork loin in macadamia nuts. The skin was nice and crispy, thanks to the nuts. Was almost perfect cept that a huge chunk flew onto my sweatshirt while I was cutting it. I changed my outfit immediately but I still can't remove the stain till today. :(
Oh yah, my regular caffeine intake was taken care of with my orders of Flat Whites wherever I could find them.
