The Adventures Down Under 2


Woke up early in the morning, again, today. And Melbourne air is really eating up my energy. Feel so tired, and sleepy all the time. Lips are dry, and peeling like orange skin. Is it me, or is it Australia?

Well, Mornington was the destination today. Started off with some cherry-picking. Interesting, because I get to eat as much cherries as I want. And mind you, not those dumb bad-tasting cherries on cakes back home, but real, authentic, juicy, mouth-watering, dark-purpled, sweet cherries. Oh yeah. That's what I'm bragging.

Next, was a place called The Glass Blowers, where people make really beautiful glasses. Oh, the skill and the art. Fascinating. And after that, the day went down hill. Went to some rose maze thingy, which was full of nothing but plants. Absolutely nothing to do with me. But oh well, it was better than looking at plants back home. Few randoms shots all around.



Now to the food. Had charcoal chicken for lunch, which was really tasty. Some seafood and egg salad and drank coke. Nothing really special but wait till you hear more. Evening, we went for some icecream in a place called Strawberry Ridge. Fascinating. Smooth, sweet, icecream. Nestle will probably go bankrupt back at home if these were to be commercialised. And lastly, for dinner, before i go on, let me warn those with weak hearts not to continue reading. I ate crocodile, emu, and kangaroo meat, all in on dish called Swag Game or something. Boy, were they tasty, especially the crocodile meat. I'm feeling wild, baby! And of course, mouth-watering oysters, mmm, which I can't have enough of it. Ate three, which was pretty much satisfying.

Australia is a beautiful place. Scenery, food, and of course the people, especially the chicks. Oops. Did I just say chicks? But if you were to ask me, would this be a destination I choose to further my studies, it would be a hell no. Man, I bet there are many more countries that are way exciting out there. The world is just too big and I've gotta explore. So, for the moment, it's a no-no to Australia. As I was standing by the piers this evening, looking down the beach at the horizon, my mom made a statement that made me ponder. She said that we're really so far from home right now, and there's a teeny weeny bit of homesick feeling. And as I sat on the beach, I ponder on the words of my mom, and I realised, I'm so far away from everyone back home. Separated by oceans, and mountain ranges, I miss all of you. Goodnight, dear all.
