I’m supposed to post this post the morning I depart but was too busy repacking.
I’m sure many of you still don’t know about this, I’m composing this mail in KLIA while waiting for my connecting flight to Adelaide, Australia. Flight delayed for one hour, my very first flight delay but luckily not that long.
This is my very first time leaving home for an extended time. From now on, I’ll be updating about my life in Aussie instead of Kuching. Gonna come back about 15 months later. Well… Maybe I’ll be back this year end, we’ll see how.
In case you’re wondering what I’m doing there. I’ll be doing my post grad studies at UNISA. Likely to find a part-time job there too to cover my entertainment and travelling expenditure. It’s gonna be a new phase of my life. Will I stay back there after my studies? I’m not sure yet. I’m just letting it goes as the flow. Many joked that’ll find a husband there hahaha… It’s possible, nothing is impossible. You’ll never know ;p
I’m too pampered at home, anything I need, I can obtain easily.Now I’m on my own. Everything I have to do it myselfSo this is a good way to train myself to be more independent.
Frankly I’m quite blank. I’m still not sure how I will cope with life there. Things are very uncertain. I have only about one year to experience this whole thing so I will do my best to embrace it to the fullest.
Sometimes I’m thinking to myself, “What the heck are you doing?!?! You are living like a princess at home and now you want to go out there to torture yourself?!?!”; sometimes I’ll think, “WEEE! Finally can see the world out there and do something I”ve never done before. Finally my dream comes true to study overseas.” So fickle minded.
Anyway, business is still running as usual, it will resume once I settled down. Now, just treat it as if I’m going for a holiday. Basically, I’ll be a tourist in Adelaide for the coming 2 weeks before my orientation starts.
Actually, I kind of regretted flying off so early, should fly on 28th, at least still have one week to stay in Kuching and save one week of expenditure there. Oh well… What’s done is done.
Continuing this post… Finally got Internet but it’s pitiful. 4GB quota per month! -.-” Oh well… What to do, can only use mobile broadband. Now using it, the speed not so bad. Hope I don’t jinx it.
I’m feeling kind of overwhelm now and clueless, don’t know where to start but it’s just temporary because I’m new here and many things not settles yet. Not yet get my Aus number, wanna sign up just now but system crashed so I didn’t want to wait because I’m feeling exhausted. Body is aching. Might be due to all the heavy luggage and lack of sleep in the plane.
The weather cloudy and raining on and off today. The wind too, one minute windy, another minute no more wind. For the record, I spent about AUD135+. Luckily there’s clearance sales going on and I managed to get some expensive essential stuffs very very cheaply else it would be more.
Will update more once I got more photos as I didn’t take much photos today, wait till I’m more familiar with the place. I was just loitering around this afternoon. Luckily I have 2 weeks to settle, really not that easy. Room is in a mess too, will show you the before after when I got everything arranged ;p
Signing off for now.
Bye bye Kuching, Hello Adelaide.
