Yes, i've been in Australia for four days and already, i'm sunburnt and fat *sobs* haha... A few peculiar things i've encountered so far...
-most old Aussie houses don't
have locks on their doors.. yeah, no locks on toilet doors either *whoops*-apples, nectarines and rock melons and figs are actually really juicy fruits.. you wouldn't have guessed after eating all the dry-ish ones back home.
-you can slop on layers of sunscreen but that'll only save you from being sunburnt.. you can still get windburn *blek*
and there's nothing much you can do about that.-the sea may not be crystal clear but for some reason, it's still blue like crazy..
-Outback bush tomato chutney
rocks my world...-it's harder to get a cheap aussie/western meal than a cheap asian meal near where i'm living in Sydney..
-some parts of Sydney are more asian than asia
.. (seriously, where else will you find vietnamese, thai, chinese, taiwanese, japanese, korean, indonesian, malaysian, singaporean and indian shops next to each other in a row?? *weird*-there may be more than 6 platforms and more than 12 tracks in a train station in Syd but each track will still have more than 2 diff trains to diff destinations running on it.. (bye bye days of just finding the right platform and hoping on the next train, now i actually have to count the minutes to the right train *grr*)
now for a bit.. meeting up with Zahra
soon me hopes! haven't seen her in a a while.. she needs to take me shopping real soon.. i'm having withdrawal symptoms ;p
Been round only to the outskirts of Melb so far, not really the city centre. Drove down to Geelong
today.. Mmmmsss fresh fish and chips at Princess Park
by the beach was lovely.. the deep fried scallops, butterfish, prawns, calamari rings (sotong la but so big) and chips...mMmmMmMsss!!.. heaven wei... they say that Melbourne is the fashion and food capital of Australia.. i'm determined to prove them right :D
