The best bus in the world is...

The best bus service in the world! Reduces joshi's bus trip from home to UQ by a massive 30 minutes! Yes... from an original 10 minute walk to GC, 20 minute bus to the city, 10 minute walk and wait for the 407/412, and then another 20-25 minutes to get to the wrong side of uni, and then walking 5 minutes to the architecture building... Joshi now walks 10 minutes to GC, hops on the awesome 169 (at about 9 - 9:30 with a relatively empty bus) and 18 minutes later, he is about a 2 minute walk away from the architecture building :D

Uni is pretty normal again i guess, except heaps of newbies that i know hahaha... We're already getting assignments! The one we got today is pretty cool... we have to renovate an existing building into an 'ecohome' or an eco-friendly home. Yesterday's lecture was interesting too... about greek and roman architecture. Its really awesome looking at the ancient buildings and deciphering the ideologies and thoughts behind their masterpieces.

Other than that... really tired and stuffed from working 6 full days last week. FiGS was awesome though... first time we had such a full on program... and it was great! Hopefully we can continue on this platform we have begun to build, and really have fun while learning heaps. Also... so much stuff happening lately! Mum went to melb for the past 2 weeks cos of my cousin's wedding! First one from mum's side i think. Last year, we went to malaysia for the first wedding from my generation in the whole family (both mum and dad's side). Now 2 weddings have taken place... both my fav. cousins from each side :P and another wedding in the next month down in melb... and then one (or two... waiting for news... lol) at the end of the year!

What else has happened...? hmmm... last sunday was first soccer game with all the youth around bris. It was really awesome, even though a few randoms rocked up. Badminton is getting a little boring lately... thought i mite still play in the next comp. Hopefully more people and better people will come on fridays and sundays so I can have a good hit out!

Well.. that's all from me... busy busy me :) might take a nap now hehe (look at the time i posted :P)

Norm kicks in again...

Well... after a massive summer holiday... it looks like the norm has kicked in again for 2007. Work has been a real eye opener about how to manage time more efficiently... and I'm probably gonna learn more about that with work + uni combination, and also missing parent(s) for at least 6 weeks this first semester! Been awesome catching up with my best buddy for the past week or so... but now, uni is around the corner and we are really into 2007!

Anyways... have a few funny work stories... (from a computer shop)

1. Customer calls in: "do you guys actually sell computer parts!?!?"

2. Customer calls in: "do you have any 5.25 inch floppy disc drivse for sale?"

3. Customer brings in system that 'overheated'. After technician analyses the system... he finds a piece of plastic melted on the CPU (plastic was part of packaging and customer did not remove it...)

4. Customer asks if CD rom drive can be used as a cup holder.

Proud to be An Aussie

Being Australian is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows ona Japanese TV.

Only in Australia ... can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in Australia ... do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in Australia ... do people order double cheeseburgers, large friesand a DIET coke.

Only in Australia ... do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens tothe counters.

Only in Australia ... do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars on thedrive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

Only in Australia ... do we use answering machines to screen calls andthen have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't wantto talk to in the first place.

Only in Australia ... are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.

58 Aussies are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers.
31 Aussies have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in.
8 Aussies had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumper with a lit cigarette in their mouth.
A massive 543 Aussies were admitted to emergency in the last two years after opening bottles of beer with their teeth.
And finally.... in 2000 eight Aussies cracked their skull whilst throwing up into the toilet.
