Day Five and Day Six in Gold Coast

29 Nov 2014 was our second last day in Gold Coast. It was a Saturday so Swell Resort's reception closed at 2 pm. We had to settle any outstanding balances on this day as we would be departing in the early morning on the following day (Sunday) when the reception would not be open. We also got the reception staff to do an advanced booking of a cab for our departure the next day.

We spent the morning and early afternoon at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. In the early evening, we went to the Swell Resort's outdoor swimming pool. The swimming pool also had a heated spa so we stayed in the spa pool for the whole time because the water was warmer and the depth was suitable for Sera. We brought our own towels as the reception was already closed by then, so it was not possible to rent a beach towel from them.

The next day, 30 Nov 2014, we woke up at 5 am so that we had enough time to clear the rubbish and do some last minute packing. The cab came at 6.15 am to fetch us to the airport. This cab driver helped us to load the luggage into the cab and helped us to unload when we arrived at the Gold Coast airport too :) .

I was surprised to see my friend at the Gold Coast airport in the same check-in queue as me. She too had come to the Gold Coast with her family and we were taking the same flight back to Singapore. Such a coincidence! 

After checking-in and passing through the central security checks, we had breakfast at the food court inside the departure area and shopped at a souvenir store. At 8.25 am, we proceeded to the international security check-in and then through customs. After passing through these, we passed through a duty free store. I found the moisturizer and serum of the brand that I normally used. They were sold as one set at a much lower price than if I were to buy them separately, so I decided to buy them.
