In Australia

14 Febraury 2007 - Was a very sweet valentine but if u ask me to go through it again, no thanks. I had food pisoning and E was manja-ing me all day. At night i went for dinner with him and his parents since i felt somewhat better. Totally forgot about the horrid valentine day rush... i was even sicker after the extra long dinner. Plus i puked out all my dinner

My father is not taking a day off to see me off, so Wednesday night was when i said goodbye. I cried and he kissed me on the forehead like he used to when i was a kid.

15 February 2007 - Got up at 7 am, feeling better and started rushing my packing. Had a long way to go, didn't pack well... My luggage was 2kg underweight!!!!!! =( i have not enough clothes! I regret excluding many things. Sigh. I kept visiting the toilet in the plane.

16th February - Arrived in Melbourne, Monash sent a really nice luxury car to pick HS and i up. We forgot to wear our seatbelts in the back seat =P

My aunt's place - our temporary accomodation was really small and my aunt's extended family, whom i do not know were living there too. Felt damn out of place and like such a burden there...

And the weather was soooo hot. And there are no fans. Nor airconds.

We ate out for lunch... meals are expensive, a simple meal costs $7-8. I looked at the menu and felt like crying. After converstion, that price could have gotten me my gourmet cheese baked rice at Kim Gary.

I saw my little cousin and she reminded me of my lil sis cuz they played a lot together in December and i felt like crying...

I didn't want to message E, I didn't want to talk to my father on the phone too much cuz any reminder of home triggers the tears.

Missing home will be hard. I would say try to call home as much as you can cause once school starts you won't really get the chance. Believe me. I been through all these for years. You will not able to shake of the crying. But you will adapt to the change as time passes. Have courage in yourself :)

sakurablossom said...

I mean shake of the crying easily...

What you going through is also called independent. Not depending lving with family anymore but learn to live the life of your own and also learn how the world actually are and the worse thing is have to juggle the finance.
