My Fruit Jar #HealthySnack

Choosing to live healthy involves a lot of creativity, in order to keep yourself inspired and keep your morale high.

I made this fruit jar snack ,as part of my food for the day and took it along to the office, so instead of being tempted to go for a chocolate bar , sausage or meat pie you can always keep this handy in your office or home fridge.

You can always fill as many jars as possible with different fruits you like and they don’t take a lot of time to make.

This also motivates others around you to embrace the healthy lifestyle.

#FoodReview – Dinner @ George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant

Today is a public holiday in #Australia, and in continuation of the Christmas celebrations,we went to #Brisbane to feed our eyes and eventually had dinner.

Wifey wanted seafood and i was craving meat (steak, lamb) in fact, any grilled meat will do. No diet this week, that will resume in January.

We have eaten at George’s Paragon seafood restaurant before and our experience there was awesome , so it came naturally on our radar when we decided to have dinner.

We didn’t have a reservation, but the duty manager or staff in charge of bookings, Casandra was quite helpful as she sorted that out and gave us a vacant table quickly. She is an angel.

One quick tip for you , if you are seated in the restaurant between 5:30pm and 6:30pm, it is half rice, yes, you read that right, HALF PRICE !!!. I discovered that today too.

Starters.

We chose hot bread rolls with butter

Tzatzaki with Greek Yogurt

Drink.

We all opted for mocktails since we didn’t want alcohol, this drink was the bomb. Sweet, cold, fresh and quite fruity.

There are lots of options on the menu for seafood and meat, but I settled for the ‘Souvlaki’ which is the name for their grilled lamb dish.

The meat came out tender, fresh, yummy, properly cooked and awesome. I enjoyed every bite and would have ordered for more if not that i am conscious of my weight.

In case you want to try to cook that at home, the ingredients are listed below;

Souvlaki – Lamb, oregano, garlic, onion, capsicum, lemon, olive oil, served on rice with pita bread and Greek salad.

I gave the food a score of 8 out of 10 and will recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for an excellent place to dine while in Brisbane.

We were attended to by a waitress named , Kelly (in training) and she did an excellent job making sure our food came out on time , we never ran short of cold water and was quite courteous and friendly.

Restaurant : George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant

Address: Level 1/45 Eagle St, Brisbane QLD 4000

Reservations quite essential to avoid disappointments.

Clive Palmer (Australian Mining Magnate) plans to build Titanic II

Queensland billionaire mining magnate Clive Palmer has unveiled his plans to build the Titanic II to add to his tourism portfolio.

Mr Palmer said his new company Blue Star Line Pty Ltd had commissioned the state-owned Chinese company CSC Jinling Shipyard to build a near replica of the ill-fated Titanic. The cost is unknown.

He made the announcement on the same day he revealed his hopes to contest the next federal election in the Queensland seat of Lilley, held by Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer Wayne Swan.

Mr Palmer said the companies had signed a memorandum of understanding to build the cruise liner in China, with the ship’s maiden voyage from England to North America scheduled for late 2016.

“It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st-century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems,” Mr Palmer said.

Mr Palmer said the rebuild was a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who constructed the original Titanic.

“These people produced work that is still marvelled at more than 100 years later and we want that spirit to go on for another 100 years,” he said.

The Titanic was commissioned by the company White Star Line and was the world’s largest liner, measuring nearly 270 metres long, 53 metres high and weighing approximately 40,000 tonnes.

It sank in 1912, killing more than 1500 passengers and crew.

Asked today if the Titanic II could sink, Mr Palmer told reporters: “Of course it will sink if you put a hole in it.

He added: “It is going to be designed so it won’t sink.

“It will be designed as a modern ship with all the technology to ensure that doesn’t happen.

“But, of course, if you are superstitious like you are, you never know what could happen.”

A spokesman for Mr Palmer said the cost of the project was unknown.

“A final budget hasn’t been set and I don’t think he’ll reveal the price to be honest,” the spokesman said.

He said the design of the new Titanic would be as close to the original as possible but would have “state of the art engineering” and would run on diesel rather than coal power.

“The technology will be 100 years improved,” the spokesman said.

Mr Palmer said a historical research team was involved in the design of the Titanic II, which would have the same dimensions as its predecessor, with 840 rooms and nine decks.

The only differences would be found below the water line, he said, and would include a bulbous bow for greater fuel efficiency and diesel generation, and an enlarged rudder and bow thrusters for improved manoeuvrability.

“Titanic II will be the ultimate in comfort and luxury with on-board gymnasiums and swimming pools, libraries, high class restaurants and luxury cabins,” Mr Palmer said.

He said the new ship would also include an exhibition room, located in the space of the old coal boilers, which will showcase Queensland and its abundance of opportunities to international passengers.

The Chinese navy has been invited to escort the Titanic II on its maiden voyage across the northern hemisphere from England to New York, he said.

Mr Palmer owns the Sunshine Coast’s Coolum Golf and Spa Resort, and the Gold Coast’s Robina Woods and Colonial golf courses.
