Great Ocean Road 17/12/2007

Simply refused to go to there by tour/bus. Convinced i had to DRIVE there or be driven there. Along came the chance to drive there when my father insisted that we could all do Great Ocean Road AND Phillip Island in a day.

We took the road less taken. Started off from Frankston at 7.30am. Drove the car onto a ferry at Sorrento.

E and i, taken by sis. Sis and i, taken by E. E and sis, taken by me!

Bro was a smart-ass and didnt bother peeing in the ferry... shortly after driving off the ferry and when we were on our way, he HAD to use the toilet. We stopped at Barwon's Head.

Its a tiny little old school airport! So cool, really felt like we were in some olden day American movie! HAHA. One plane took off! These planes are for rent to view the Twelve Apostles too!

We stopped by Bells Beach, its a surf beach, but that day didnt seem to be a very good day to surf. The surfers were waiting and waiting for waves that never came.

Pic of E and i! Damned pissed that between my camera and my mom's, there is not ONE family picture at Bells!!!!!!! Geramness

Aussie roads are different! Look at this!

Cars/buses/lorries that are driving slowly are to turn out there and let the (faster) cars behind pass!!!! And people are so considerate! Many of them let E drive pass!

There were also signs with arrows telling people that u are supposed to drive on the left hand side of the road! HAHAHA, a reminder for Americans who drive on the right side of the road?

As navigator in the front passenger seat, i read every single sign board on the road. Saw on tht says Historic grounds or something. We stopped.

Shipwreck! And pretty scenery... wud be nice to go snorkeling there... but kinda scary cuz 5 people died trying to retrieve sunken cargo, what if they want me to take their place in the deep blue sea?

Finally we got to Apollo Bay where we had lunch. Wasted time there. Shit. Sigh. Then it was my turn to drive!!!!! Yayyyy! But my route sucked! Boring winding forest roads.

It was rewarding seeing the tip of one of the apostles though! I was like "Is that it?!!!!!!"

And it was! The 12 Apostles... Pretty pretty picture! Sunny windy day, the best for photography! But the flies ruin everything!

How can rocks look so beautiful?

It was so picture perfect, it looks like we are standing in front of a card board print out! HAHA

On the way towards the Geelong, i had this REALLY straight country road to drive through... i went 130kmph =P Some of the views were magnificent but too much of the same thing gets boring. Which made me wonder at times, why the hell did i wanna drive there so badly?

Aussie roads have taunting signs convincing me that i was too sleepy to drive. They say things like "A micronap can kill". 35km before Geelong, i gave up, i surrendered to those signs, admitting defeat and fatigue and asked E to drive.

I slept for an hour and got up when we got to the city. I had to help look at the map. We took a turn. We were going really fast since time was not on our side. When i look up from the map, I'll never forget the fear i felt at the sight of the stationary cars not far ahead. We were not slowing down. I panicked and yelled at E to stop! Thank god the car is this powerful high tech thing that managed to stop inches away from the red car in front of us.

Made it to the penguin parade JUST in time!

Thankfully it wasn't too crowded, had decent seats. So on time that we didn't have to wait in the cold for long. Those little creatures began to show themselves. CUTE!!!!!! And they are so unafraid of humans viewing them

Stole a picture of this little guy! Forgive the bad photo quality... we weren't supposed to take pix =P

Aussie is full of cool signboards! So cute!
Got such thing wan ar, penguin under ur car? I'd kidnap the cute lil thing!

Maps of our journey!

Took a pic of a travel brochure and edited the regular route to Great Ocean Road =P We used Melway some of the way

and when we drove OFF the Melway map and we actually used THESE kinda maps to know which major towns to head to till we got there!

The right side of the above map in detail:

On the way back, we took the same roads back to Tooradin and from there we headed to Frankston, entirely using the map. Melways are pretty good stuff, and girls (me me me!) can navigate! =p Hehe

More on the driver's side, take a look at E's blog!

Totally unrelated...

Pic of me! HAHAHA, home alone today so i drove to the beach! So damn beautiful and so full of people. Cropped this picture for msn display but it looks shit when its small, so it goes onto the blog! =P

Watched Ps. I love you on the 27th cuz i read the book. Took me AGES to complete reading the book cuz i kept on crying! To my bestfriend its sweet, but to me its sad! Everytime i started crying, i had to STOP reading! LOL

Needless to say... i cried throughout the whole movie. Never have i treated 10 pieces of tissue paper like gold. I dun think the movie is that sad (and its also VERY different fr the movie. BTW its the FIRST movie i've watched after reading the book), i cried cuz i remember crying when i read the book! =P

Visit Malaysia 2007

When the Ang Moh cashier taught me how to wash the toilets in the restaurant, she was like "Gross gross!" And i was like, WAIT till u see Malaysian toilets!

When the manager told me to grab the dustpan, the broom, the Mr Degreaser spray and follow her to the toilet, i was like SHiT, what kinda mess do i have to deal with? It turned out to be just TWO pieces of paper on the toilet floor!

She then complained smelly, i was like, WHAT smell? Hello, thats nothing like the toilets in my beloved beloved Malaysia!!!

Can u guess where i'm working at by my uniform and my chilli name tag?

I'm happy.

And check out my new boyfriend!

Laptop Theft Warning

Spotted a lady tearing off the identification number of a Dell laptop on the Frankston train from Melbourne Central.

She couldn't log into the Novell system. She was smsing with her left hand and pressing keys such as Enter with her right hand. All to no avail

She put the laptop back into a laptop bag... and pulled out another one. This one didn't have the torn identification number above its screen. Again she couldn't get pass the screen that prompts users to log in.

She receives a phone call. Then she asked another passenger something. Can't understand her accent. She then asked E whether there are any trains back to the city and she got off at Toorak train station.

We found that really suspicious and went to the police station to give a description of what we saw. E even took a photo of her. The police on duty asked E to keep the photograph for a few weeks.

Our report would ONLY come in handy if someone makes a report. So if your laptop ever gets stolen, you SHOULD make a report! The police wouldn't act unless you make report.

Also, don't EVER say that leaving ur laptop alone for 2 minutes is okay, they don't even need 2 minutes, trust me. E lost his laptop that way, and so did my family.

God Them Tired

Notice the error in my title?

E read it before i deleted it and laughed at me like shit...

Decided to put it back up cuz that shows HOW tired i am

Done with my first day at work. Screwed up and messed up a bit but looks like i'm forgiven. Work's not bad at all. Time flies and i don't think i yawned at all.

Oh and free lunch!!!! Smiles! Hehhe, dunno if its just for today or a regular thingie

So dead tired... Looked like shit as i walked home eating my fries and wrap. U know how shit is always surrounded by flies? That would be me as i walked home. The flies here in Aust are STUPID, they rather rest on my face than on my food...

Gonna sleep now

Holiday too Long

So messed up la my bank account n my spending... lost count n so stressful to make it balance.

No time to blog really... there are some pictures but no time to select and blog.

Starting work tomorrow. Just part time in a fast food joint. Not a permanent job yet, had to add that cuz when i started my internship this time last year, a senior started her permanent job in the same company n department as me...

Spent 60 bucks applying for the work permit and 40 bucks buying shoes for work today... the whole week's worth of pay would be to merely cover expenses. Suckyyy

Somemore, its training n trying out for the work tomorrow... possible that i dont get the job. Wish me luck!

When i think i do ok for a law subject, i end up getting a credit for it. Happened 3 times and yet again with Taxation Law, my favorite subject this sem.

When i thought i'd do badly in the other law subject, possibly an NP (near pass, which is one grade below pass but also one grade above failing)... i got a distinction for International Trade Law.

Well at least i finally got my distinction in a law subject...

And i'm glad to graduate right on time!
