before I tell more about Sydney, let me refresh some good old times with my family members at the airport. (don't remind me of the day I burst in front of you guys haha)
Mi familia - well obviously I don't have everyone in the picture, cause it will not fit the lens. ramaiiii gila special people in my life!
I miss these kiddies muchoz. rindu dengar dorang bising2, suruh dukung, suruh belanja. haha Girls, do you miss your Aunt Min here? hehe
with Aliah, my coursemate, she sat next to me dalam plane.
Inside plane story
honestly, I don't sleep much. ada tidur kejap-kejap, tapi paling lama pun was just 2hours long. I've always enjoy flying. So I think it's a lost kalau tak enjoy the journey (tapi memang tak nampak apa2 pun dari atas, sebab malam). Alhamdulillah, the flight journey was fine. takde turbulence ke apa ke. cuma, I don't feel comfortable in that lounge suit. Cause I had been wearing them since 3pm the previous day. rimasss! lebih 12 jam dalam baju yang tebal, besar, londeh (okay, dan masam). tak selesa!!
untuk elak kebosanan (dan ketidakselesaan), I walked back and forth to the toilet. couple of times. sampai kawan2 pelik 'apasal ko pergi toilet banyak kali'. haha to be frank, I don't really 'do business' dalam tu. (faham2 je la ye haha). pergi sebab betulkan tudung. pastu, pergi lagi sebab basuh tangan. pastu pergi lagi sebab bosan. pastu pergi lagi sebab amik air semayang (Subuh dalam flight). pastu okay. memang seriously, pergi toilet banyak kali. hahah
the best part was, Abang Ali (my brother-in-law's brother) was on duty - in the same flight! hehe. mula-mula tegur dia.
me: Abang Ali kan? adik Abg Ma.
Abg Ali: Ha ah, mana ko tahu?
me: Adik yong laaaa
Abg Ali: Laa yong tak cakap pun ko fly malam ni! okay ko dok sini diam2 dulu.
lepas tu, few times dia datang bagi hot milo, extraaaa food and first class travel kit (ada lip balm, hand lotion, hand wash, socks, toothbrush, macam2! best sangat! sempat juga sembang dengan dia.
Arrival - touchdown at 9am (11th Feb 2010)
Alhamdulillah, we arrived safely in Sydney. It was around 10am lepas kitorang lalui imigresen semua kat sana. Luckily, they didn't check my luggage satu-satu, sebab dia cakap 'You are here to study, it's okay love, go through'.
Pastu our co-ordinator was there (Dr Pamela) waiting at the bus to bring us to our accommodation (and uni!). We pass through the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The first time I see it, I was like --- 'I'm really here, Sydney, and that's not a postcard pic' --- I was stunned.
these pictures were taken from inside the bus. *ignore the NO SMOKING sign haha
I think that's all for now. So the journey from the departure day has begun. It feels like yesterday that I left Malaysia. and left everyone I love there. But trust me. You are always in my heart.
Love you all, family! :)
*dah genap 2 bulan min kat sini :D
