So did 4 guys on a gaming expedition do anything else besides gaming? Hell yah, we went shopping and eating and gambling!
Of cos we spent a small fortune on games but we also spent quite a bit on grocery shopping and eating well. I spent almost A$100 on Aussie snacks aka gifts for the folks back home. Latte Tim Tams were everyone’s favourite when we tried it one nite in the apartment. We would always open some new snacks when we got back to the apartment every nite, while trying out the new games we bought. Anyway, we all agreed Latte was the best, I think together we bought like over 20 packs over the next couple of days when we re-visited the supermarket.
Day 1 breakfast was the home-cooked sausages and eggs. Day 2 was 5 (or was it 6?) slices of white bread, cheese, Tasmanian pâté and a glass of fresh milk for me. The pâté was excellent. Only the Orange and Brandy mix (the one on the left) sucked. Recommended by one of the guys who studied there. I liked it so much I bought a pack home too, found one without the Orange and Brandy! Still in my fridge, haven’t opened it yet.
Day 3 was a simple pack of instant Indo mee for me. Was pretty good if I do say so myself. Been awhile since I fixed myself a packet of instant noodles. Thing was for these first 3 days, we all signed up for 10am morning tournaments. So breakfast had to be a quick one in the apartment.
But on the last day, we had nothing on that morning so we went looking for a really big breakfast. Found it at nice little Greek place down the road from the convention centre. We were served by a Borat-lookalike, really.
Food wasn’t as cheap as we expected it to be. Cheap steak was something we were looking out for but not much luck finding any. The guys who studied there brought us to some of their familiar food joints like Red Rooster. We just luuuve the gravy.
Next up we got more food and a nite at the casino...
