Looking for gold

Few days ago, Melbourne experienced yet another earthquake that measured at 5.2 at the Richter scale. If I'm not wrong, this is the 3rd or 4th time Melbournians are experiencing earthquake in the last few years. So, what does it indicating??? End of the world??? hahaha

Well, I hope the shifting of the ground might bring along something! Could there be gold which used to be buried deep under and now got pushed upwards???? If there is such thing, probably I'll go get a metal detectors gold and go try my luck eh? Who knows....

Medication over the counter

The difference between Malaysia and Australia when it comes to seeking medical treatment is purchasing medicines. In Malaysia, each time we go for consultation at the GP, we will be prescribed a list of medications which is included in the cost. However, things are different here in Australia.

In Australia, the GP will only give a prescription by he will never include the medication. We will have to bring the prescriptions to the chemist to purchase whatever we have been prescribed by the GP or if we are just suffering from normal cold or flu, just get any of the over the counter in the chemist. So, there is no particular brands to go for and we will normally go for the generic brands.

I guess for convenience sake, we can purchase our medication from online pharmacies which can be cheaper at times. Like, if you want to get phentermine, you can go to It is convenient and safe.

Winter in Melbourne

Winter in Melbourne this year is destined to be wet and cold! Brrrrrr....

On most days it is gloomy and it rained most of the time so getting the laundry dry is really a huge headache. Luckily hubby got a gazebo over our laundry line so we can keep our laundry away from the rain...

Sometimes, it is so cold that the water vapor will turn into water droplets and wet my laundry! *sigh*

Finally the upgrade is done

There is an intersection here near our place which has been going through an upgrade for the past few months. It started a month before I popped and it was not completed even after I completed my confinement. There were many traffic cones on all the sides so we have to drive at 40 km/h along those cones.

I am so glad it is completed at last so we don't have to drive at snail speed since the traffic light turns red real fast!

Being at the right place and at the right time

We are so glad that hubby managed to get a job just 1.5 months after we moved here. The job market has been really soft lately with many companies laying off staff. Really blessed that hubby has a job now else he will be feeling so sick sending his resume off…

One of the thing he was glad about was attending some courses which help with resumes writing especially for new migrants. Also, he was lucky too to be picked by his current employer during the course as they were sourcing for staff at the institute at that time.

Well, it was a matter of being at the right place and at the right time!

Looking forward to our nest hunt

House pricing has been dropping lately and we are getting really excited as we are nearer to our dream of getting our dream home. We are hoping that it will go further down and we’ll start to hunt for a place. We already know what type of houses we want but the only thing is, should we get a resale or a brand new one?

Hubby preferred brand new but I am contented with a resale if the house is nice and the location is good. Hubby wanted something more contemporary so he was hoping to get a brand new house but I am fine with any. I don’t mind even if the house are fitted with metal switch plates.

Can’t wait to go for viewings!!
