The Reuben with Fries $15.50
The thing is massive with layers of Wagyu Salt Beef, swiss cheese, pickles, sauerkraut, mustard mayo squished in between two fat slices of rye bread. A**** wasn't that hungry and I was starving so eating half each was perfect and he polished off the fries.
With a full stomach, I was energetic again and pretty much skipped all the way to the Art Gallery of NSW for an exhibition that I was dying to see.
Art Gallery of New South Wales - First Emperor Exhibition
Art Gallery of NSW
The First Emperor Exhibition showcases 120 rare artifacts and objects found in the tomb of the First Emperor in China; Qin ShiHuang. 10 terracotta warriors are also displayed which was the highlight of the exhibition.
No photography was allowed so I don't know how much trouble I'll be in if they found out that I posted this on my blog :(
The terracotta warriors were arranged according to rank with The General in the front followed by Officials, Soldiers, Crossbowmen, Archers, Chariots, and two types of horses in battle formation.
Every terracotta warrior have their own unique look, facial expression, clothing, hairstyle and position which is pretty amazing because there are 8000 of them! When they were first discovered, they still retained their vibrant colours but soon lost it due to oxidisation. :( The Chinese government has stopped unearthing them unless we can find a way to prevent that from happening.

Something for the blokes to see...
The exhibition is truly amazing and there is activity sheets for the kids to take home. I personally took some back myself...*cough*. It was a paper armour set which I had difficulty squeeze in cause of my big head :P
***The First Emperor Exhibition finishes on 13 March 2011 so go fast!!
