I know that i have not been posting for 2 weeks now, until there's speculation surfacing saying that i'm dead due to being suffocated by big Aussie momma. That is not true. Because i'm posting here. Or i may turn out to be that big Aussie momma, hacking into his account.

Anyway, as a compensation for the long absence, I'll write about my Easter weekends. It start off with Holy Thursday, with the mass at 8pm. The Cathedral of St. Francis Xavier is one of the most beautiful cathedral i've ever seen. built since 1881, the cathedral managed to maintain most of it's originality.

After Thursday, we went for the Good Friday mass on Saturday Friday. The cathedral is crowded, but unlike Bintulu, it only started to get crowded towards the last 10 minutes before the mass starts. Back at my place, if you dun arrive at least 45 minutes before mass, you'll ended up with nowhere to sit.

The bad part is, you don't get to see many young people in the church. Most of the people in there are elderly people. 90% of the young ones are Asians, who are more "unmodernized", i could say.

Anyway, after the mass, we went back and did nothing. What can we do? It's Good Friday! What, go clubbing? Sheesh.....

Friday goes to Saturday, and we have Easter Vigil that night. We were supposed to go with some friends to a club to hang out, but me and another two friends went to church, and said that if we're still in time, we'll join them after church. But halfway through the sermons, i felt my stomach churning. I went to the toilet twice during the whole mass, and i would not elaborate more because it is rated 18SG (Super Gross) and some of my readers are still underage.

Besides that, i forgot to bring my passport as proof of identification. So with that, my plan of going to a club is gone. We met a friend of my friend, and we went to China Town to have some drinks and some chat. After we're done, it's already 12am. We waited for the bus, and we stupidly turned down the last bus for that night, thinking there are other buses. We waited and waited and waited until 1am, before i cleared my tummy again at the public toilet (21SSG), then we walked all the way back to our lodge.

the whole journey took us 1 hour, so we arrived by 2am. What a bad night, missing a night at the club, had bad tummy ache, and had to walk for 1 hour in an autumn night.

And i suspect the cause of it is the curry my friend made.

On Easter Sunday, my cousins asked me out to have buffet with them, so i enjoyed all the good food at an all-you-can-eat restaurant. Then that night, my cousin brought me to a bar to watch Man Utd play against Liverpool, the matchup between two arch rivals.

There were supporters from Man Utd on one side, and Liverpool supporter on the other. The Reds' supporters signs their hearts out, worshiping their club and taunting us. It never felt better when we scored 3 goals against Liverpool. There's this drunk MU supporter started to taunt the Liverpool fans, and things almost got ugly until someone pulled that fellow away. And it happens just beside me.

Then Easter Monday arrived. It was so bored, my friend suggested we go to the beach. So we go to Henley Beach.

It's not the beast of beaches you can see, but it's definitely better than Tanjung Batu. If only the shore is a little bit wider and bigger, it would be a good beach with people sun bathing, playing volleyball or hot chicks in bikini more.

We walked all the way from the place the bus stopped to the jetty. People are fishing there, maybe one day we will start too, because fish are expensive here.

Before going home, we bought 8 pints of Vodka Cruiser for 18 dollars, which is $2.25 per bottle. It's even cheaper than back in Malaysia!

So that's my Easter weekend, before going back to my crappy schooling days again.

Adelaide is hot. It's so hot, that a new record was set, which is the most number of days with temperature going above 35 degrees. As of today it is at 10 days, but it was predicted the number of days can reach to 14 days.

Anyway, look at the picture below, and tell me at what time was that picture taken?

The University had a trip to Victor Harbor, a small seaside city with beautiful sceneries to view last Saturday. They charge AUS$10 per person, so we followed the tour since it's our first time and had nothing to do, anyway.

Before reaching the city, we stopped at a wineyard. You can see that there's acres of land over the hills that are planted with different kind of grapes. Supposedly we can buy wines here as well, but they have changed management and thus, not selling anymore. Too bad...

After the break, we continued our journey until we reached Victor Harbor at around 1 o'clock. The first thing we did when we arrive is to go to the information centre and ask about...where the famous fish and chips restaurants are. So we went in search of those restaurants, only to find other students have packed them. So we have no choice but to dine at a hotel's restaurant, which fish and chips are more expensive, which costs AUS$9.90 compared to AUS$6-7.

Then a friend of mine and I shared a bottle of wine for AUS$6 per bottle.

Fish and Chips with wine, now that's a proper lunch.

After filling our tanks, we decided to visit Granite Island, which is a short walk from the city. Just before we crossed the bridge linking the two piece of land, we saw a horse trying on his new shoes.

As the horseshoe is being fitted onto the horse's leg, you can actually see smoke coming out, meaning the heat is actually burning the horse's foot. Don't worry, the horse won't feel a thing.

Only then we walked to the island. There's a bridge connecting the island and the mainland, with horse tram carrying passengers also using the same bridge. We decided to walk, because it costs AUS$4 just for a ride.

After walking for several minutes braving the freezing winds, we arrived at Granite Island.

The reason the island is called Granite Island is because it is made from granite stones. If it is formed from limestone, it would have long gone, being eroded by the waves. Basically, the only thing to do on this island is to view it's sceneries from the top if it. The view is so beautiful, that you can use the pictures taken by me as wallpapers.

Click HERE if you want the full resolution picture.

The top of the island is like a desert, which make it looks like you're lost in the middle of nowhere. We walked the island while taking silly pictures (because i was stuck with 2 camgigolloes) , until around 3.45pm, when we went back to Victor Harbour. Then I bought 2 doughnuts for AUS$2, which is processed directly after you make an order. Hot doughnut on a cold windy day, now that's heaven.

The bus departs Victor Harbor at 4 O'clock, and halfway back to Adelaide, we stopped at somewhere that i did not know of. Things to see here include:

Tree with a bunch of white parrots.


Vintage car.

After that, we all went back to Adelaide, and live happily ever after. The End.
