Still being caught for flight!

Just came back yesterday night. Thought Tuesday was my last day standby and they won’t call me anymore, but unfortunately office still called me for flight. Some more can asked me to choose which flight I want. “I have Melbourne and Sydney, which one u prefer?” Aiye… I am so tired to go for flight lar! Since the flight time for Melbourne and Sydney is more or less the same, and both stations also single night stop, so finally I picked Sydney as its allowance is slight higher than MEL. This flight is “MUCH MUCH” more easier than the crazy Madras flight which I did on Sunday. Pax are nice plus light load. And the set crew also very nice, very ideal to do a long trip with them. But however this flight overlapped my roster and taken off my 2 off days. Suppose I have 11 off days in this month, now become 9 days. I want my off days back!!!

As per usual, since it is a midnight flight, so right after reached hotel, 1st thing I did was shower then went on bed to “charge battery”. It is very important to restore my mind and energy. Slept until 3pm, woke up and heading to SYD downtown to buy something and kill the time. Winter will be over soon in Australia, so the weather now is just so nice, not that cold, temperature in between 10-18 degree celsius.

Went to Chinatown 1st to feed my stomach, surprisingly noticed a restaurant opened by Malaysian Chinese named Mamak! Haha…. A place where we usually hang around during night time in Malaysia. But this mamak is not like our mamak which set along the road side, it is under the roof and fully air-cond. The foods which they offer also more or less same like mamak stall, such as roti canai, roti planta, maggi mee goreng, teh ais etc… very fascinating!!!

After my lunch, did some shopping in Chinatown, quite a lot of shops which opened by Hong Kie in Chinatown, so getting a Hong Kong stuffss are quite easy here. You can even buy or rent a latest tvb series over here too.. Haha.. After Chinatown, I went to Town Hall, which is a very busy area in down town Sydney, more or less like KL Bukit Bintang area. Lots of shopping malls and arcades around that area, Sydney sales was just over last month, so nothing much can be grabbed cause without sales, the stuffs are pretty expensive compare to KL. Since no sales means nothing can buy, so I went to Woolworths, a supermarket which is very famous in Australia which sell a lots of foods and daily use products. Able to get some junk foods and bring it back to KL. Haha…. The sky was dark, wish to “jalan jalan more” but I was very tired and sleepy, since I will have 1 more Sydney flight end of next month (on the Hari Raya eve, shit! Cannot enjoy the Raya public holiday!), so maybe I buy the things that I left out when I come to Sydney again next month. So after Woolworths, I went to “tabau” something to eat before going back to hotel. Then slept for 11 hours til next time morning before coming back to KL. Wow! I think this is the 1st time I slept for 11 hours in this year!(Can imagine how tired I am). Normally I sleep not more than 8 hours a day.

Gosh!!! Tomorrow morning London again! I am so tired and lazy to go! I don’t want to work during weekend, I want to go clubbing!!!
