Helloooooo…this space seems a little quiet. I know It has been too long since I’ve blogged and I hope that I’m back for good. A lot have happened since my last post. One thing to update is my major life transition, I’ve been studying in the city of Brisbane, Australia, for almost four months now and it has been great. To be honest, before moving here I had certain doubts about my own emotional stability judging from the fact that I got REALLY depressed the last time I was away from home for long. But since I got here I haven’t been experiencing any symptom of homesick (except the sickness for home cook meal by my super mum. Does that count?), so all is great. I am loving Australia. The people are seriously and genuinely nice. My facial muscle got used to smiling so much to pretty much everyone that I come across. I’ve also made awesome new friends who it has been a blessing to get to know. I’ve found a church and a connect group that feels like home. My university rocks, I can skip lectures and watch them later at my own pace (how awesome is that? CHULA you should definitely consider adopting this policy). I’m so excited to explore the café culture here and have already made a list of places to go and all, yay! And above all Australians seem to be really into healthy and organic way of living, which I am all in for. So I am all good.

But still, this country is the complete opposite to Thailand where the city lights, shops and restaurants live on for several hours past midnight. Here… supermarket closes its doors by 4pm! I guess that is the only things that got some getting use to. Oh and the fact that everything costs pretty much 300 times more than it does back home. So yeah maybe I do miss Bangkok. Okay I should just stop this doing this comparison thing or I might just get homesick right here and now.

Back to my happy self. So yes 4 months in Australia and I’ve already been to three cities! Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Yep that’s three destinations cross off my “Places to see in Australia” list. I’m excited to cross them all off within the year that I have left.

Right now I have a week to go before my 3 months summer break begins and I cannot wait. I will definitely blog more often especially about all the cafes and restaurants I will visit during the break. Here are random photos of my journey in Aussieland so far. Enjoy ☺
