Since the orientation finished on Tuesday, and nothing to do on Wednesday, we decided to visit the South Australian Museum, which is just next to the University of Adelaide, which is just next to the University of South Australia.

So in we go to the museum. Contrary to the Sarawak Museum, this museum have three floors, and.....lots of pathways. We were lost in there. When we entered, there is a bunch of aborigines inside the aborigines arts center, some being interviewed while some looked around. Another performed some natives songs that can be the hit in the radio station anytime.

Next, we all walked around the building. I feel lazy to write about everything that i see, so i will just post photos, with some description of the things i'm showing.

Giant shark.

Colourful minerals.


Ancient statues.

White wolf.

You know, i have a feeling that i will be a great tour guide.

I guess it's been to long since i last update my blog. Been busy with exam, then packing, then settling in a new place called Adelaide, Australia.

Yup, this is a new chapter of my life. Definitely something that is different from my previous experience.

So currently i'm staying in an international student lodge, where international students like me stay..duh. It's about 20-25 minutes bus journey from my uni, but it can be quite slow if there's traffic jam, especially in the morning. Just met a few Malaysians, especially Sarawakians in the kitchen, when i decided to cook something to eat.

One bad bad bad thing about the lodge is that it only provides 1.5GB quota for internet usage per month. How am i gonna survive like that??? This is like asking a 150Kg man to eat only half a bowl of rice!

Been around the city with my cousin and his housemates, and then had orientation these 2 days at Uni. Sorry no pics yet, din occur to me to take some pics. Hopefully there will be some soon.

I guess that's all until i visited more interesting places. Tumoro will be going to museum, and probably do something else...

Here's a recap of my Chinese New Year break:

Went back to Bintulu on Friday, arrived at around 1.45pm. since most of my friends only came back on Saturday, so i spend the rest of my day at my grandma's house. Nothing much on Saturday and Sunday, except a badminton outing with a few of the old gang.

Monday afternoon went for another badminton outing (what's with me and badminton anyway?) , and that night is the 5s4 gathering at Ice City. Obviously, we had ice at Ice City. After that we went to the brand new Park City Mall and within half an hour, we finished all three floors of the mega-small mall. Still got time to spare, we went to some malay stalls to have some drink and catch up with each other till 11.30pm.

Tuesday morning, had our routine basketball game at Taman Li Hua basketball court. Terrible shooting percentage, but got 4 blocks against the same person. He never learn...have to head home by 9am, coz of a dentist appointment at 10am. I was scheduled to only have a check on my teeth, so the dentist cannot fit any teeth cleaning session for me. Waited for about 20 minutes, enter the room, dentist use the mirror to look at my teeth for 5 seconds, and then said "OK, ur teeth is fine". WTF, i wasted the chance to enjoy myself with frens after the basketball match juz for a 5 second dentist visit?

The dentist then scheduled me for cleaning on wednesday at 10am, and during the buzzing and sucking and spitting and rinsing, the dentist and nurse keep on saying my teeth is in tip top condition. Weird, are holeless teeth uncommon? I do brush my teeth, but occasionally i do forgot to do so. I blame it on ADD. But the way the nurse is talking as if everyone bound to have a hole or two in their teeth, and my teeth is amazingly....crater-less. So yea, my teeth is still perfect, just like my eyesight.

Wednesday is New Year's Eve, so went to my paternal grandma's house for dinner at 5pm. This year my family is not in Bintulu, plus my uncle from Miri is not coming down to visit, so it's a relatively small crowd of 13 people. Then my father's eldest brother send me back to my maternal grandma's house, where i had another dinner. This year the celebration seems not as grand, with the fireworks and firecrakers showdown only lasted for about 15 minutes.

And finally, the first day of the year of the rat arrives! woke up at 6 to go to church, and went back home by 8.30pm. Unlike previous years, nobody came for bai nian until around 12pm. Usually by 10 oclock, my grandma's house will be packed with distance relatives, family friends and church members. The first group consist of a Father from Miri (forgot his name ler...), Bintulu's own deacon Peter Khoo, and a couple of alter servants. Around that time also, my auntie and family arrive from Miri, and the church community from Miri met again in Bintulu.

Then around 2.30pm when i was about to have my much needed sleep (wake up at 6 everyday for church or basketball), another group arrive. The whole house is sleeping, so i have to wake my aunties up. Visitors are family friends, who never failed to visit my grandma long as i remember. Then my paternal grandma and uncle came for a visit, and asked me to go over at night. Unfortunately i cannot make it, since their house is quite far away, and nobody wanted to go visiting with me.

Instead, that night, my cousin invited everyone to have a game of blackjack, so i joined him, my aunt and my cousin's husband Vinh (Vietnamese, cool huh?) for some money earning games. My capital is RM10, and i made profit. Huge profit! my investment rewarded me with a 330% return! that's RM23 nett profit! Woohoo!!!

After my biggest winning of gambling ever, we cousins decided to go have some roti canai. So my two bro cousin, my sis cousin with her husband and i went to a roti canai shop near the old Bintulu airport. If you're familiar, you'll know what the attraction of that place is. Want to make a guess of what the picture below is?

After we filled our tummies, it's time for some sleep. Due to lack of space, i migrated from the room i stayed at my grandma's house to the new hotel called New World Hotel above Park City Mall to spend the night with my cousin. Supposedly the two brothers stayed at the hotel, but because my aunt and uncle steal my room, and my sis cousin and her husband slept at my grandma's house too, I have no choice but to sleep at the hotel, while the elder of the two brothers slept with their parents.

The next day is one of the most boring 2nd day of Chinese New Year ever. for the whole day stayed at home, watching TV, sleep, play games, do assignment until night falls. Then at night, went to watch CJ7.

Funny movie, but should have watched KungFu Dunk by Jay Chou, because CJ7 doesn't have much story line in it. Overrated, if you ask me.

Day 3 of the new year is by far the best moment of the CNY break. As you all know, we 5s4 students tend to do crazy stuff, becoz all the studying had fried our brains. This year is no exception. Our bai nian group consists of no less than 15 people, visited no less than 21 houses, which started from 8am till 11pm, non-stop. Although the many houses visited, ang pao money is not that much. Not complaining, in fact I understand, as price hike of stuff and the large group of us, of course not many can give much for ang pao.

Leaved Bintulu For KL on Sunday, same flight with one of my cousin back to KL. One of my friend missed the plane, so he had to take the later AirAsia flight back. When touchdown at KLIA, my cousin bro treated me to a dinner at Eden, a chinese cuisine shop at the airport. One of the best food I've ever eaten, everything is cooked to perfection. This justifies the Rm40 for a small dish of lemon chicken.

Overall, not that fun of a CNY compared to previous years. Reason? family not around, weighted by assignments and test on Monday, and not that much feeling of a chinese new year. As if very solemn. But i should be thankful for being able to celebrate CNY, as compared to some who have to stayed back for studies, or like my family, have to work and study so can't come back.

After a few weeks of useless posts and also one which caused quite a debate, I have decided to do something meaningful for a turn.

On the 25th January 2008, the whole Malaysia is shocked by the death of a first year medic student by the name of Lee Nian Ning, who was killed when the bus she took from Penang to KL crashed at Slim River, Perak, with two other passengers. The bus driver is already facing 13 summons, yet he was not screened by the bus company and was still allowed to drive buses. Now, I won't start another flaming comment, or it will beat the purpose of this post.

Anyway, not only did we witness the lost of a bus passenger, but also the lost of a future doctor who can save many more lives in the world, a talented swimmer, and also a blogger.

I know that it is quite impossible for us to visit her personally now, but i would urge all the readers of my blog to visit her blog HERE as a sign of paying our last respect to her. This is the least we can do for someone whose life, future and passion were robbed by an individual from a minority group of reckless and irresponsible people.

Deepest condolences to her family members and friends, and may God bless her soul and keep her near His side.
