Happy In Brisbane

6 July 2008

Here I am in sunny ol’ Brisbane! Compared to the Irish accent, the Australian one is definitely a lot easier to understand… but it still takes a little getting used to.

Landed at about 9.30am yesterday morning and got through immigration and custom without much hassle, even the queue was bearable! Custom and quarantine checks was a little slow-ish, but that was expected (anyone coming to Aus would have heard of it’s custom, I think). Finally got through everything an hour later and met Linda, Zen, Linda’s car.. and oh, the one driving, Adrian. ;) It was absolutely wonderful meeting those three after a long time apart. The last time I saw Linda was like… uhh… 2 years ago! What’s even better is that there wasn’t that distant feeling that sometimes happens when friends meet up after a long time apart. I was whisked from the airport to a local shopping centre… muahaha… the shopaholic in me loved it! Nevermind that I didn’t manage to sleep much on the flight here, I still managed to buy a couple of things.

The first thing I learnt about this place is the water restrictions that is in place, I was duly informed about 4 minutes baths and the impending droughts… while sitting in the car as rain was falling outside, no less. O_O Now, that is going to be tough. One of the first things that popped to mind was “thank goodness Ray’s not here… him and his 30 minutes showers will break all water restriction guidelines! Heh. Thank goodness I’m not one for excessively long showers!!
