howdy there people!

just arrived in tasmania couple days ago! finally am here and startin my course in two days time. nothin much to do there except go on tours and site seing around launceston. the school bout 55km from the city and will be pickin me up on the 7th. no free broadband around here but have internet cafe near the hotel. nothin much to do at night and the sun sets round 9ish at night! imagine at 8pm its still freakin bright  :D plus its three hours ahead of m'sia cause of the daylight savin time cause of summer.

warm durin the day but chilly at night cause of the strong wind blowing at night, dont know how beauty point will be..... well, cant wait to begin the course and get it done asap!!! :)

cheers! and happy new year to all!!!!
down deep... really deep!
