it's been a week here in Adelaide. Many new things I managed to catch up and I still have to learn a lot from people that revolve around me. For starters, the weather here. Thank goodness, I arrived at this new place at the end of summer. But still, it's a something new in the chapter of my life. On top of that, when the autumn commences, I figured out that I would be cool man to be able to endure the coldness of the surrounding. Unfortunately, the ambient temperature around wins the bet. Oh my good! It's chill here, and I tell you, I'm not joking mate~! The startling facts are that, the temperature can't be predicted, even the weatherman never rights about the climate. In the very morning, temperature would drop to about 13/14 C , and when noon approaches, it's scorching hot, up to 29/33 C. That's a little experience from me that I can share with you from the Autumn climate here. How about winter? Oh, that's gonna have to wait and I hope I can still able to write a piece of information to be put here, not to mention the extreme coldness that I'm gonna have to bear with.
I'm very thankful to the lots of blessings from Allah for what I have got and achieved now. Many unpleasant moments happened before the fruit of happiness and success can be experienced. It's a once in a life opportunity to be able to study abroad. I know many people want to enjoy what like what I'm enjoying now. But, please, it's not a vacation I'm doing now. It's a commitment and a responsibility for me to perform not just a fantastic academic results, but also being a person with lots of experiences and knowledge to be shared to my beloved home country, Malaysia. I really hope that I am good enough to catch up with the pace of study in the University. But, good enough is never enough as sponsored student like me should be excellent when I come back to Malaysia. On top of that, technology here is very up-to-date, particularly in the University system of education, everything is told at the system, and every university attendants have to check to their account regarding their particular lectures, tutorials, workshops and etc.
On top of the above stories, here a one of the good piece of experience that I think best. A week living here, I judge from the very bottom of my heart, and I give an utmost respect for Australians behavior on the public transport particularly bus. They are very gentlemen! I tell you, when an elderly hops into the bus, young people or middle-age person, regardless of their sex, would happily offer their seats without demanding even a thank you. It's a very kind of them! Seriously mate! You've opened my eyes for good value here.
Next, I am excited to tell you that, the speed limits here in Adelaide is just 60 km/h which is absurdly slow compared to the speed limits in Malaysia, am I right? Yes, and I would like to do a joke about that, unfortunately it is a fact. For all the transports ranging from motorcycle and lorry, the speed limits applies for them all. If any obstruction of limits occurs, a fine would be charged without excuse mate, and it's very expensive!
Well, enough for this post. I have a class to attend this morning. For you information, it's early about 2.30 hour in Adelaide compare to Malaysia. I hope we'll meet again on the next post. I tag along a few memorable pictures for you, my following readers to enjoy :)
