Aussie Bloggie

I hope I don't develop an accent...... I would kill myself.

I've been here for 3 weeks. The weather is cold. I haven't seen the sun for days. My queen size bed has become a single. I'm starting to pay my own bills. AND I'M LOVIN' IT!!!!!!!!

The worst part of my trip here is that my mum tagged along for 2 weeks. Ahh!!! But now she's gone back and I'm finally without parental supervision. FINALLY!!! That means I've only begun living for about 1 week :D And I finally remembered about my blog....

Some people I met at the airport.
On the right, a Vietnamese exchange student and the left is Ace's senior at UCSI
And a random ah moh at the back
Australia is weird in some ways. People there greet by saying "Hi, how are you?" You think they are all very friendly until the 10000000000th Ang Moh greets you the same way. I eventually learned that their 'Hi, how are you ' greeting is as meaningless as body soap.

Trams and cathedrals. Definitely not Malaysia
In my 3 weeks in the land down under, I have come to appreciate to maze that is KL. I have lived in Malaysia for 18+ years and still find it hard to navigate through the city (not counting walking from one mall to another :P). But I can walk in the city of Melbourne without getting lost using 3 weeks of knowledge. It is THAT organized!!

Even their train stations are cooler!!!
The weather here is nuts. There is 4 season weather EVERYDAY. You never know when it will rain, be sunny, cloudy or be freakin cold. Everyday I leave my room I must bring an umbrella and a coat. One time, it went from 29C to 17C in TWO MINUTES!!!!!

Weather like this is short-lived
And the food!!!! I cannot stop eating!! Tim Tams, Shapes, Brie Cheese!!!!! So much cheaper than back home!! I bought some and am still enjoying it!!!! I'm missing Malaysian junk food but I think I can handle it :X

Look familiar?
 The thing about Aussie. A kg of drumsticks is cheaper that a kg of whole chicken. Fruits are fresh, veggies are not. Snacks are cheap, canned soup is cheap, milk is cheap, bread isn't cheap. They sell Kanga meat.

Read: Kangaroo Mini Roast.
I'm living in a place where it is near both the city and the uni. Lucky cause the public transport system here is a nightmare (EXPENSIVE!!) The room is half the size of my room but I don't feel it cause the bed is half the size of my bed. It already has the Nicole touch (Messy) and is comfy!!!

I'm actually happier that I look....
I'm loving my life in Aussie but I won't stop missing Malaysia. I won't stop missing roti canai and teh tarik. I won't stop missing my schizo friends. I won't stop missing eating roti canai, steamboat, Papa Johns with my crazy retarded gang.
