Melbourne, oh, Melbourne.
I had heard of this city since I was in primary school. And here I am, placing my first ever footprints in Melbourne.
Friends are moving here one by one. The latest friend to join in the migration crowd is Kim.
It was more than a trip of work and play for me in Melbourne, even though it only lasted approximately 72 hours. There’s so many eating outlets and I would love to try them all. There’s no particular Aussie dish since the community is kinda diluted. Not to mention the influx of Asian immigrants here. What I enjoy most would have be the Italian cuisine.
It was just simply enticing and mouth-watering.
With such a short time period, I definitely could not discover more. I will probably come back with my own savings. Save, save, save! I have yet to experience the Koalas and Kangaroos, Mt Bhuller, Great Ocean Road and et cetera.
Nevertheless, the added advantage of this trip was being able to catch up with friends I don’t see frequently.
This trip also allowed me to experience Planetshakers’ church which is located at Dallas Brooks Centre.
I grew up listening to both Hillsong and Planetshakers, so being able to experience how a usual Sunday service goes was definitely enriching. I’m going to share a 1.5-minute video of the first song during the praise & worship with you through this youtube below:-
The last time I attended a PS Conference was back in Dec 2006 and the team did drop by at City Church KL for a visiting Sunday in April 2008. Gosh, that was so long ago. Most of all, I was more than glad to tag Kim along, and a liberating moment came when Kim re-dedicated her life to God.
Many thanks to Sunny as he took me for a quick tour around La Trobe University.
Well, that’s my university. Actually, I never had a chance to study at this campus, but completed the degree at the Nilai campus.
My heart sort of like melted when I saw the scenic landscape around the institution. The question kept popping in and out of my head “Why didn’t I have the chance to experience the education here?”. Oh, things do happen for a reason. Not by coincidence, not by human chance or luck. It’s already pre-destined by our heavenly Father. Well, maybe I will have a chance to further my studies in near future. I’ll never know what is in store for me.
Truth to be told, I just can’t get enough of the eclectic Melbourne.
How can 72 hours be enough for such a beautiful place? The chilly weather is simply revivifying for me. I have always been in awe of temperatures between 8 – 18 degrees celsius. Oh well, the grass is always greener on the other side, isn’t it?
As I mentioned, I have yet to touch and see real Koalas or Kangaroos.
Thus, I will be back, no doubt.
