While sitting in the tram on my way home this afternoon, I wondered at how many new things have I come across since arriving in this city two months ago.
Lygon Street = where home is
Swanston Street = where buddies' homes are
Safeway, Aldi, IGA = food supply stores
Brunswick = halal food haven ('coz I normally dine out with buddies and not alone)
BigW, QV = where to buy starting household supplies
Vic Mart = where to buy fresh food like veges and fruits (sometimes at a bargain)
ComBank, ANZ = where allowance will arrive
Tram No. 1 & No. 8 = to city and back home (and everything in between)
Tram = trains powered by electricity, with tracks on roads (together with cars)
Tram No. 19 = to Brunswick
Tram No. 109 = to church
A little bit about school,
Copland (Economics & Commerce) = the building where we have 6 of our 8 Science lectures in a week
Sidney Myer (Asia Centre) Carillo Gantner Theatre = where we have the remaining 2 Science lectures
Elizabeth Murdoch = where we have our 'professionalism' lecture (1 per week)
PBS = our Science subject for this semester. We don't have Anatomy, Biochemistry, Physiology, Pathology, Microbiology, etc... we have PBS. Which is Principles of Biomedical Science (for Sem 1), and it's an all-in-one subject
HP = our 'professionalism' subject, to learn how to become a doctor. It's like ToK in IB, and the chit-chat thing in KMB. HP = Health Practice
These words wouldn't have meant a thing to me when I was still in KK.
Anyway, they are now the most basic words to me I think.
That's all for now.
