"Dave", but not really.

Took the boat out today for a couple of hours. What a treat!
Way more fun than any amusement park ride!
Got home 2-3 hours ago and I’m still tired. Trying not to doze off though coz I’ve managed to perfect my sleeping schedule since getting here. Believe it or not, I wake up by 8 nowadays. In the morning!!!! FOR REAL!

Last weekend

Left for the airport Sunday evening. 
Gave my fiance tons of see you soon kisses.  
Left Malaysia.
Monday morning, Perth. 
And (left) one of the reasons why I love being here with family.

Leaving on an airbus

All packed. Less than 2 hours til I leave the house to head to the airport. That’s 3 in the friggin morning. I’m generally up through the night so the plan was to just stay up til we leave. Get some sleep in the car. Then in the plane I guess. But I fell asleep at 9p.m. after I finished packing so I’m all fresh now. 12 plus hours of travelling before I’m back in my room. Yes, the Perth – KL flight is only 5 hours, give or take. But my connecting flight from KL – Penang is at 4. Which means an extra 3 hours in transit. 
So I guess my last post from Perth should be about what I’ve learnt in the 2 months I’ve been here. Or what has changed. But I don’t think I’ve taken the time to really sit down and think about the entire trip. I’m slow when it comes to digesting those sort of things. Normally takes some time before it even hits me that I’m in a different place. It’s my coping mechanism, since I move around so much. I guess you can expect a long post about it a week from today.

For now, I’m just glad that I’ll be getting off the plane and stepping into warm weather. Being here in winter has confirmed what I’ve always suspected. The cold and I do not get along! I’m tired of applying lotion to dry skin. And having to put on layers of clothes to go out. And freezing my ass off because I forgot to put layers of clothes on before going out. I want to go back to only worrying about which deodorant to use before heading out because it’s warm and I might sweat. Haha. Yeah.

Malaysia, here I come!

Sandy Toes

I love the beach and the sea. It’s the only time I don’t mind being in the sun and would even look forward to getting a tan. I like laying my towel out and reading a book or listening to music. I even think that waves crashing into the sand is one of the most calming sounds there is. 
Ideally, I would have loved to visit in the summer and spend half my time by the beach. Too bad it’s winter now and the weather’s pretty chilly. Didn’t keep me away though!


Went to Ravenswood for lunch today.
Nice big place by the river. Unfortunately it was too windy and cold to eat outside.
Challenge of the week. Lol. I actually looked at the menu, looked for the “snack” portion of it and ordered a hamburger, thinking it’d be just nice for lunch and I wouldn’t walk away feeling stuffed. And THAT’s what they served me. Only managed to gobble down a third of it. The rest of it is sitting in the fridge now.
Mum’s appropriately portioned meal.
