We’re finally in
Wahoo, we arrived in
Pastor Christopher Kee with his church member Margaret and her son Brandon picked us up from the airport last night. We are now staying in Uncle Christopher’s house. He has a nice basement-like room for us. We slept off at about yesterday and woke up at today! We were dead tired cause’ we hardly slept since we left the LCCT airport. Thank God we’re here now and well rested.
We’re staying in
And oh, did you know that if you count dollar to dollar, buying food at the super mart is really cheap compared to M’sia! The muesli bars we bought are just 3$ and the 1 litre soft drinks are only 69 cents. Cereal is just 2 to 3$. And we buy fresh milk instead of powdered milk here. It’s all good – once my parents get a job. Haha. :D The home brands in
Food facts aside, I’d like to admit that the fact that I’ll be staying here and not going “home” still hasn’t sank in. Seriously! It’s funny to think that we’ll be residents here once we find a house and all. But God is good. He has opened so many doors for us. We are praying for God’s guidance and excited to begin new chapter in our lives.
At about (the sun just set) just now, we came back from a very long walk at
We just had dinner with Uncle Chris, Aunty Annie, their 10-year-old son Samuel, Aunty Alice, a church friend Nigel, Aunty Margaret and Brandon. Now we’re playing PS2 in our hideout basement room. Brandon and Samuel are entertaining us with their pure goofiness. Haha. It's funny to think that now the only kids we know here are Brandon and Samuel. One's 15, the other is 10. Oh well, two friends are better than none! :P
So anyway, I’ll post some pictures so you get the idea of where we’re staying and what we’ve been up to. :D
Janna and I. And oh oh, guess who gave me those cool sunglasses as a farewell gift?
Haha, I only opened it when I was boarding the plane. I really wanted sunglasses, you know. So it was a nice and useful gift. Haha. ;) Everyone has one of those here. And yes, they say that the weather's erratic in Melbourne. You can have four seasons in a day. So sometimes its sunny, sometimes its not.
We went for a walk to Jells Park and took turns riding the 2 bikes. And did you know, we actually have to buy bike helmets in order to cycle here. In Malaysia, that might seem a bit funny. Haha. And oh, that's Samuel on the bike. He's 10. And his cheeks are always pink. I think it'll be our turn soon. :)
My dad and mum. And yes, this whole place is the park. There's even more than "this whole place" in the picture! So much land.
SPIKES!!! Yes, its supposed to be one way only! The cars coming out from this road are safe, cause' from the opposite direction, the tyres can just roll over the spikes (it's "retractable", if that's the right word...).
Back from dinner at 8 pm. We had fish head curry! We were surprised when Aunty Margaret told us that the curry was bought ready-made from the local supermart - it tasted so authentic and yummy! Probably even better than back home. They even have durians here, and durian ice-cream, too! Haha.
Haha, it'd be a pleasure to pinch Samuel's cheeks. :P
So anyway, I've got to go now. I think it'll be awhile till I get the chance to post pictures and update. So we'll keep in touch yea. Check my blog every now and then, I'll be sure to keep you guys posted!
Till then, take care and g'day mates (try imagining it with an Aussie accent)! Harhar. ;)
