Coldplay AHFOD tour & Australia - Melbourne, Canberra & Sydney Trip 2017

Every small things that I remember from both of these trips.

1. Listening to local radio fm while driving from Melbourne to Canberra to Sydney.
2. Breakfast moments in Bangkok with my best friends. We had nice morning talk.
3. Using "ojek"/moped (like a true "rempit", Bangkok style) to this Big C shopping mall in Ramkhamhaeng District before going to Rajamangala Stadium for Coldplay concert.
4. Running in a 8 degree weather at 11pm while it's raining near Melbourne CBD, East Melbourne. Checking in after hours is the worst. Lesson learned.
5. Checking in the Canberra and greeted by a sweet old man who is the caretaker of Canberra Carotel Motel at 9pm with below 10 degree Celsius. After hours check in needs to go to the caretaker's house. Again. Lesson learned.
5. Confetti and lights in Coldplay concert. It was a very well prepared tour. The numbers of songs are just amazing. This is thus by far, the best concert I have ever been in my 29 years of life.
6. Using Uber to Melbourne CBD to get the car that we rented. Supposed to get at the airport but the car rental place closed at 10pm and we went there when it is closed. In Australia, gotta take care of business opening hours.
7. Chatuchak park (I think is new) is really clean. Even though there's some people selling some snacks around the park.
8. Listening to Paris by the Chainsmokers and how it became the road trip song when in East Australia.
9. Sydney Observatory Hill, please if you're going to this place again with your partner and show him the family picture.
10. After the concert is finished, we stayed a bit in the stadium and the guy told us to go since they want to clean the floor. What an ethic. I really love Thailand for hosting the tour there. They're really nice person.
11. Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. It might be a small thing for other people, but it was big for me. Im a fan of Australian Open. Even though the arena is still under construction for renovation. One day, I will be able to spectate the Australian Open.
12. Eating Thai food when in Sydney CBD.
13. My dad drove the car for like at least 30 minutes and asked to change driver because he was sleepy. The freeways between Melbourne to Sydney is boring. It's straight and less curves and everyone is driving under speed limit.
14. Went to a mosque in Sydney, (its in level one, number 56-60 Erskine St) it's a simple prayer room but they have schedule for Friday prayers.
15. Parked in Sydney CBD (mostly wilson parking)  AUD38 for 3 hours. AUD7 for 30 minutes. 
And after working hours AUD8 for night parking.
16. We didnt realize that the check out time for Canberra Carotel is 10am. So we take it slow, 
but the safekeeping came at 10.50am & we had to quickly pack, and it took us 20 mins 
to check out. haha.
17. Eating Angus meat in McD downtown Canberra. I dont know whether to call it meat or 
junk meat considered it came from McD? 
18. Thats all for now. I will add a few more once I remembered. (probably never)


Fit :)

First post, January post, feels like I needed to post post.

I was watching the Black Mirror season 4 episode 2 on Netflix and then suddenly I feel like I needed to write something, so I paused my binge watching. I put on tunein KIISfm 106.5 Sydney, open new tab and typed blogger.

I don't know why at this moment I had to write it out. I feel really grateful for having someone or some people concern of my well being, even though we didn't really know each other. Not in a weird kind of way, you know when people feel lonely or horny, they find people. But in a way that, "you and I have known the feelings of loneliness or brokenhearted before, so we need each other" kind of way. We kept it at minimum, because expectations kill. So it is better that way.

I think I'm ready to say that KL does not suit me anymore. My friend has said something that makes me think. I wanted to live simply, but KL is just not for my kind of people (minimalist) anymore. I always thought that if you want to live here, you don't have to participate…

More on Melbourne Trip

I just remembered.

The moments when my brother was driving throughout the Great Ocean Road, after Maghrib. After we had lunch/dinner at Iluka Restaurant in Apollo Bay. Superb halal restaurant and the Seafood Platter and the Chicken Platter were the best!

The journey through GOR was breathtakingly amazing. Even though it is almost night, by the way sunset was about at 5.30 PM, the coastal road filled with the sound of waves and the Spotify playlist that we listened to.

The thing that I remembered about that journey was the houses by the sea shore. We could see clearly that most of these houses don't have any curtain or blinds. Or maybe they just open the blinds and expose to everything. Grasp! Couldn't imagine the views from these house during the day, when the sun is up to light up that side of the ocean, the Great Australian Bight.

Couldn't take pictures though, I was too tired and the low light setting from the phone and my gopro aren't that good either.

I will come …

My friend asked me to write about him, so here it is.

I won't be telling name. Since I think this guy is quite unique. He liked all my facebook posts which kind of weird at first, but I got used to it so fast. Thinking that it's nothing. Probably he just switched on my posts notification. My mom didn't asked about this one. Last time, there was an Arab guy commented on my facebook post and my mom asked me who he is. laughed out loud.

Anyway, let see if I can write more about this guy. We talked about many kinds of things, places, marriages, procedures on how to convert to Islam, human beings, about female anatomy which he is very interested in. Well, that escalated quickly.

We never met. I don't know why probably the fact that I feel a bit scared. No woman should feel  hostile when going out with a guy isn't it. Or maybe I just couldn't trust myself at this moment going out with random guy that I don't really know. He is cool with it. In fact, he is cool with everything I said. Maybe because he liked me. Well,…
