Packing

short-talk:

It's true that many times we shape our words from our mouth without realize another truth which is, those words will actually shape us back.

That's how powerful and impactful of the one word you utter. "The power of word and the power of silence."


--------------------------------------------------

Behold, i'm here to clean up the spider webs and mushrooms germinated in my blog!! *wipe wipe*


There is just so much to prepare and settle before i can fly off peacefully and properly. For the past few days or weeks, i have been so packed up in getting my medical check up done and visa prepared. Hostel registration. Timetable allocation. Shopping. Internship write-in and so forth.


On top of that, i have done some early shopping and managed to purchase some of these items:
Winter Coat

Winter coat. My friends in Melbourne have already forewarned me that Melbourne is in winter mode now! I assume it to be in 10-16 degree Celsius. Skinny people like me for sure cannot withstand the polar climate and chilly breeze. Gonna have a good and first exposure to this season though!


No worries, I will try my very best to keep my health in good shape and avoid from any normal flu in Melbourne, in case i might be suspected of having H1N1 and get quarantined for the next 6 months! *1 metre away from any Caucasian*


You guys better don't curse me to have H1N1 in Melbourne arr....hmph! =P


Luggage

I bought a giant ELEPHANT sized luggage bag and a small sized portable luggage bag. Initially, i thought that the maximum allowance baggage weight for MAS is 30kg. But after checking through the weight system, it states only 20kg! *long piak* Hopefully i will not exceed the allowable weight, which i pretty sure my ELEPHANT luggage will overreach it by then.


Moreover, I really thank God that i managed to grab the low fare flight to Melbourne which costs me around Rm900++. Kinda cheap though if you compare it with the exact flight price. Also, i finally went for teeth scaling after a long wait of six months. All in all, i have a new set of fresh looking teeth now! *grin*


This just an example la...not mine. =P

Exactly 7 days left before i depart for my exchange programme. As for now, i feel both enthusiastic and reluctant to fly off. Enthusiastic in a way to really get myself a broader exposure of the tertiary culture at the other land, and feel kinda reluctant of letting off my care group and ministry for the next 6 months.



Perhaps, this is really a part of growing in life. You just got to the good go, in order for the better to come.

*preparing*
