I really should be showering some proper updates here before it sorta dies away. It will eventually, but I’m trying to relive it as much as possible, so it won’t seem to be as dead. Hehe. :D
Anyways, Life in Adelaide had been a rough and bumpy one. Everything’s giving me a major headache, from phone plans, to internet and banking. Can life get any worse? : ( Nah, I’m fine, just a lil’ frustrated, but, life still goes on, doesn’t it?
Well, to cut the long story short, everything’s been settled, and Mum has left. Yes, I’m indeed very heavy hearted to let her go, and would do anything at all to make her stay, but I understand that some point in life, I’ve got to learn how to grow up, stand strong and face life. (well, that seems very easy to say huh?)
Anyways, I can’t say that everything here is bad. The environment here is pretty good, actually. They’ve got really nice scenery and well, I love the structure of the buildings over here. : ). Really unique ones, unlike the buildings back in Malaysia. (You know , the same usual tall, steel, rectangular structure I’m talking about? YEAH, THAT! ) And, well, the arrangement and development of the buildings aren’t like the ones we’ve back in Malaysia where it’s all so cramped up and congested, but it’s rather organize and neat here.
Besides, traffic system here is REALLY good too! I mean, the drivers here abide to the road laws and there are certainly no aggressive and selfish drivers on the road. : ) I love the traffic lights and pedestrian walkways too. It’s really safe to walk along the streets and to cross the opposite side of the road as they’re really efficient. : ) Hmmm. Public transport system is great here as well! Nothing like what we’ve back in Malaysia, buses running late, aggressive drivers, etc. They are free trams and bused everywhere around the city which is really helpful as we need em’ to travel to places like Chinatown, the Coles Supermarket, etc. Besides, the bus rides also brings us to the beach and the other suburb areas which I think it’s better than travelling by car. :D The public transports are ALWAYS punctual too!
Weather here fluctuates all the time. Sometimes it’s hot, and at times it’s cold. But lately, the temperature has increased slightly, and it’s rather hot during the day. :/ Sooo yeap! :) But, nonetheless, it’s amazing to have cold breeze brushing through your skin almost every time of the day. Oh, and did I mention that we hardly sweat here which is pretty awesome cuz we don’t STINK! Haha. : ) and, of course that’ll help save the load for laundries as well.
Oh! And MOZZIES! They are huge and aggressive,I tell you! It’s crazyyy! I’ve got like red spots all over my face and body, its HORRIBLE! : ( I look like a monster with swollen lids and stuff like that. Haha. : ) Besides, the flies here are FREAKY toooo! They stick to your faces when you’re walking down the street. Disgusting, huh? Heard there’ll be more during spring! : ( However, haven’t seen any scary insects just yet, and I definitely don’t hope to see one. Oh and btw, cockroaches here are HUGE too! Ugh.
The people here are way different from Malaysians. Some are rather friendly, but well, others are pretty arrogant and unfriendly. Most of em’ thinks highly of themselves, which makes us feel a lil’ discomforted and unwelcomed. But, I guess it takes time for everything to fit into place, or so I hope. *cross fingers*
Well, that’s all for now I suppose. Will update on my apartment and stuff like that REALLY SOON!
