Day17 - End of Trip


What day 17 means? ... It means I am leaving Australia.

What start to day?... I woke up at 7 and I lie on my bed… go on YouTube and watch the videos which I left last night. When it’s 8, I took a shower and start to pack up my stuff, then is time to start the journey of my Last day in Sydney.

Old tag has  been removed, the new tag is going to put on

First station. Church. Just go on a Sunday Mass, a bit late but still not yet to the mercy thing. During the mass, I do look all around and find a guy who I met two weeks ago in the church, but just did not get him.  It’s a sad thing for me… it’s the last day in Sydney and the bad luck is still with me. Whatever it was, it has pass… hope I will meet him next time on my trip to Sydney…. But………I just know he called “Luka”…nothing more… that’s sad. Maybe Jarryl could find him for me…No idea…

Then, went back home get all the stuff into the car… all the way to city, to Stacy home. It’s her birthday party!! We go on and have food, watch the boxing game together. See? Even the kid want to play with us!!

Did take few hours there, then we went to Bondi at 1530. It’s not too far from her home to Bondi. It takes about 20mins drive in Sydney… cause there’s traffic.

Bondi is really a nice and beautiful beach. It’s long and smooth sand; big waves which make many surfer love this place. I have attracted by this beach. Maybe it’s because I go there late, the “Bondi Rescue” has already off patrol, not really much people but some of the surfer. It’s really a nice place. The water is clear and the wind do make comfortable. Although the sun is going to set but it still shine on me, it warms me.

After the beach walk at Bondi… I went to the shop “Between the Flags” which is selling “Bondi” brand stuff. Got two shirt, one for Angus, one for my teacher, but both of them are medium, so I dun think my teacher could wear it so I just take it!! LoL
I do buy one more T. for my cousin too. I think she will like it… cause its beach.

There’s a girl which work at that shop, actually there’s just one staff… She is a Italian, we do talk for a while, when I am going to pay at the counter. She even forgot to tell me the price of all item. As always… I got infinity topic all the time with Most of the people. I have take a photo with her, she is really nice, cause I dun know the size of my cousin, I afraid that she might not fit that shirt and she said if I got any problems or want to change another size, I could send a email and notice them, and mail the Tee back so that they could mail the correct size.

Then it’s time to the airport. Mr. Fernandez is here. Thanks all of you. Although there’s a little problem during the check in…. like my luggage is too heavy. The permitted weight is 23kg. And mine is 27.x kg. So it is not qualified. The lady at the self-check in drop off counter told me to take off few things out then I took out the magazine, the shoes, my brasar and one of the jacket. Then it ran down to 23.4kg I think. Then I put on my shoes on top my luggage, and it showed 24.6 kg… I couldn’t imagine that my shoe is 1kg heavy. So I asked her: could I put on 1kg more? Cause my hand carry is too big and I dun want to bring my black shoe. And she said: Yes, 1kg more only. Then I put my shoe in there, bring the luggage back to the counter, it is 24.5kg… and I’m like… Thank God! She said: ok [here you go.

Then I got the brooding pass and walk to the departure gate. Say goodbye to everyone, say goodbye to this lovely city. Sydney.

Get into the custom, when I am writing the form which given by the Australia IMMI, I meet a woman who came from Korea, she do not know much English, so I taught her and help her sons to fill up the form

The kid are Siuwo and......

Then I took her to the gate, cause our gate is just next to like my gate is at 32, and her was 31… My plane leave 5mins before hers, and while her line is almost end, I say goodbye to her and walk to my gate, and I just find out that, there’s only 3 passenger not yet go on board. 1 Economic and 2 Business class passengers.
That’s Cathay. They work really fast… so I just ran to get on board …

Do not really know what’s going on. Cause Cathay has changed my seat again… and it’s a window seat AGAIN!!!... I hate window seat, especially Long Haul Flight. There’s a man sit next to me, the first sentence I say to him is :Do you want to have the window seat?...He says… No… I prefer an a seat the corridor… after take off.. I am not really comfortable with my seat, so I walk to the back to the Galley, and talk with the staff, I told her I want another seat which located at the corridor... but seem the plane is full, they said there's no spare seat. Although there are no spare seat but the Flight Attendant still help me to ask the IM of the plane, so that I might have a seat on the cabin crew rest area.
Thanks a lot!!! also her =.=...someone who asked for appreciate order to give thanks to them... I have wrote a comment letter. got it for two pages long...
I type in on computer to check out wrong words and grammar mistakes first, then I wrote it on.

My flight (CX138) arrived at 0529 just take a few steps to the immigration counter,
go on e-way. I am the very last customer came out from the flight, cause I need to pack up my stuff.
when I arrived the bag collecting,

it is just 0543 

very soon my luggage came out grab all the stuff went out to the arrival hall,

OMG... it is just 0548... That's Cathay, That's Hong Kong.

It's always that quick and convenience. Going out to the arrival hall, got no sign of my parent's,
... dun really know they are coming to pick me up or not...and my phone has broken...
so I couldn't reach them...
Suddenly spot that the Flight Attendant has just came out to the arrival hall...
I ask for their help, to let me make a call!! Thanks a lot!!
Maybe that's Hong Kong... We are always that helpful!

It’s a pretty good day!!
Today I’m going to Eastwood to meet Suzanna and we have Skype yesterday night and meet today at 1240.
My host dad have drive me to Eastwood… that is really great like is 25mins drive to. It makes more time for me and also have no need to take trains at Parramatta and have interchange… We leave home at 1150 and we arrive at 1215… It’s bit early than the time we make… but I do have a call to her to let her know~

So she came at 1235…. It’s 5mins early… but she says she is rushing to and changing fast…. Couldn’t imagine that how would that be if I did not came early and she did not rush~~
After I met her we have lunch in a Korean restaurant

… It really makes me full… we couldn’t finish all of it ~~ but still thank you to Suzanna cause she buy me a lunch!! : ]

a bit guilty for me like buying me a meal,  so I buy a drink for her afterwards… It makes me feel better
LoL… Then, she shows me around Eastwood. Then I take trains at Eastwood station on 1545 (an express train to Central, just one station between… Strathfield),,, so I could arrive Central at 1610… then I have go on tram… u won’t know what happened… I have a free ride on tram!!...

This is the girl who sells ticket and there’s also a man…
When I am on board, the man has come over and I told him I am going to Paddy’s market, then I take a $50 note to him, he look over to his money bag, there’s enough of money in his bag, but the thing just happen unexpectedly~

He said: Did u have a bigger note?
I said: Yes, there’s a hundred dollar note~~ that’s all I have
He said: It’s all right…………. Don’t worry, enjoy your trip…
I said: Thanks~~
Before I left the tram
I said: I have seen you before, like when I am here last August~~

Then I head to China town…Why?
 Last night we have dinner at home and Maria, Jarryl mother has make a dish for us, It’s something like Beijing peeking duck~~ but he got the wrong wrapper so I am there to find a right for her…
So I asked a girl working in the restaurant and she said, we got in this restaurant…but that’s with the duck and hot… I have ask more, she taught me the way to the World Square which is located in the George Street, so I go on there and ask few more people for the location super market which selling Chinese food~~

After I find it, I go on outside and buy two box of sushi~~ it is just $5 per pack~~so I get two of them

~~ Afterwards I go on and get two postcards and stamps too!!
… That’s not yet the greatest thing of the day…
Afterwards, I get out from World Square and heading to find the bus information which the bus from Parramatta to my home (Baulkham Hill)…
a waste lots of time but I couldn’t find it!!
Before I go on to waste time, I have a great show just at the corner of George Street!! They called "The Wildhearts"

Hope that they have a longer show since they must take a break for the weather problem! It’s raining!! The sunny day with Suzanna has gone... what comes is rainy night!

Then I go on to the Monorail

because I want to have the bus information at QVB… It’s just one station between the QVB and the ????... I dun really have enough time so I just go on for a circle like
World Square à Galleries Victoria àCity Center àDarling Parkà Harbourside à Convention àPaddy's Markets àthen all the way back to World Square
finally… I could not find it so I just go down and go to the Central station to get the train to Parramatta at 1851but before that I do really want to go to toilet, but all the toilet is on un paid area… so I just ask the woman at the gate that could I go out and have a toilet~~ she say “Yes, just come back here later” so I just went out to toilet and going back on the same gate… and walk on to the western line platform…

at the platform, I meet a woman who was working at Manly, she is now a writer and she is going to publish to book (she said), then I go on board the train and sit at the top of the train… start to write this blog entry… but I did not finish it… cause I am writing this NOW at home!!

After I get off the train at Parramatta, the train is like 5mins delay so I run to the bus station… lucky I did not go to the wrong bus stop cause there’s two bus stop at the bottom and top of the train station~
When I am in the tram I type this too… like it’s a long entry today!! I do walk a long way after I get off the bus station, I do walk a long way home… it’s like 35mins walk… it shouldn’t take that long, it should be just 25mins…. But I get few wrong turns!
What’s at home? They had have steak for dinner… but I am late, so I just eating alone~!!

What’s going on Day 6??.... If there’s great weather, there will be a Golf day~~
