Breaking the nutshell

Well, I had been in Perth for about a month now. Things are settling down slowly for me and I settled down pretty quick this time, since I had the same experience while in KDU. I met new friends, new lecturers, of course, a new degree environment.

Coming to Perth really opened my eyes to the world, like a nutcracker cracking a nutshell. I really learnt a lot of things and understood countless difference between Malaysia and Australia. For some reasons, I felt disappointment about Malaysia's progress lately, on how race discrimination still continues; on how poor Malay people are being discriminated by others in the same country; on how naive and stubborn some people are in the government, dying to protect the Malay's rights, only to lose sight of what Malaysia had truly become; on how suspicious people look at every stranger that passes by, fearing that they may be a victim from the stranger...

Of course, I have nothing more to say, as I have lots and lots of information that I do not know yet. Other people take them as 'common sense' and I don't have them. Looks like it's a long way to go for me to learn about the world......

Maybe reading newspaper, watching news online or TV will help. But I'm still in lazy mode due to lack of motivation, so yeah, the irony. XD

Nothing much to say actually. Oh right, I have prepared a letter regarding all my updates while in Perth. Sorry for not sharing it here because there's too many things to talk about. I sent this letter to friends and family out there. So if you would like a copy of the letter, feel free to ask me. Or you can find me in facebook or MSN and chat for hours, I don't mind. =)

That's all for now! Oh, by the way, today afternoon, my Aussie lecturer gave me and my friend, Alex a shock. He spoke Cantonese to us. O.o
