junio

From driving along the four lane Jalan Loke Yew to work at 30kmph with hordes of motorbikes driving in between lanes, they will honk you and give you death stares if u so much as turn on your signal to change lanes. 10km journey takes 45minutes at best (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

To driving on the four lane M1 highway here at 90kmph. I dont see ANY motorbikes at all =) And if u change lanes people give way. Takes 35 minutes on average to go 25km (Melbourne, Australia)

From listening to Hitz.fm and Mix.fm to listening to Fox and Mix.fm. There is a Mix.fm in both countries.

Then i started listening to B.fm in KL... where they talk interview CEOs and financial people.

Lately i've been listening to Triple J in Melb. Love the issues discussed. The condom advertisement on a billboard featuring a gay couple. An employee was suing the employer for being sacked via sms. Live cattle that is exported to Indonesia are inhumanly slaughtered there. Arguments for and against the ban of live cattle export to Indonesia have good points

Today as i was enjoying my walk along Bourke Street and noticed a campaign! People approached my friends and i to sign petitions for the ban on live cattle export! I know these things are common here, even in my short visit to Perth in 1999 I witnessed some of it. But still, the voicing of opinions surprised me!

Pic 1: Hardware Lane
Pic 2: Yum cha (Dim sum) in Rainbow Restaurant. Food is cute but taste is just average
Pic 3 & 4: A black girl was trying on the dress in a shop, it looked so good on her, i tried one on myself. We both bought it!

In Spanish, junio means June. And you are supposed to write the days and months without a capital letter =)
