I’ve moved to Melbourne! (okay, so everyone knows of someone who lives here)

I realized I’ve been traveling, packing and moving from one place to another yet, all by myself, for a surprisingly fair bit now. It all seemed to start in my Trainee Intern year in 2007; and it is amazing to think that this time, arriving in a completely strange new city, with virtually nil social contacts but a trusty map in hand, can actually start to feel familiar.

But it has been very enriching I must say – as I look back to the places I have stopped over, remember the things I have encountered, and think about the times I have spent alone, and with God. Maybe I’ll write more about some of the life things I’ve learned, next time, hah.

Day 0

Day 3

Day 14

Day 21 - but I'd like to think that my room's not usually this messy

Sorry about the lack of updates here – I was without access to the Internet for a few weeks.

I hope to get back to updating more often now!!

    lol very nice the way your room progressed from tidy to messy to tidy and then finally to messy again after only 21 days!

    Seeing you have so few material possessions compared to my other blogger friends and myself, is very refreshing.

      haha thanks for the comment. the only reason why i have so few stuff is because i keep moving cities every year. it’s funny too how i packed in my artbooks to bring over to Australia but decided to leave my medical reference books behind!

    Hi! I’m Ruth. :) Just came across this post. It may be a little late to reply but I liked your writing on the enriching experiences of moving, times spent alone, and with God. I guess I cannot identify fully as I have only moved alone twice, but still…it is my thoughts in words. Thank you for sharing.
