Australia: Arriving in Melbourne (Day 1)

So I have arrived safely in Melbourne. It is super freaking cold here...!!!! 

Bloody 9 degrees. Can't be compared to Sydney's 20 degrees (according to Yahoo today).

Bought this at the duty free shop ar thr airport on my way in. I will probably get more when I leave Australia, but this is for the mates whose place I am staying at.

The officer didn't question much on what I wrote on the border immigration card, though trying to decide whether to tick 'I am migrating permanently' or as a 'Return Resident Visa' is a bit confusing. 

One thing about travelling on Air Asia, if you can afford a bit more, try to get the seats nearer to Premium and in the Quiet Area. There were at least three babies screaming at the top of their lungs at 3 am in the dead of the morning. Drove me nuts!

So I have arrived safely now. Took a two hour nap. It takes roughly twenty mins from Caroline Springs via bus and another forty mins via train directly to the city. Fare is roughly 7Aud for a daily rate for Zone 1+2 on the MYKI transport card.


I am now at Max Brenner, having just ordered my large hot chocolate with crunchy waffle balls. (About 6.50Aud).

The National Library in front of Melbourne Central station.

Last but not least, is my purchase from David Jones this evening. Aud122 for a total of five full sized products!

Until tonight... Laterz!
