Term starts in Australia
Huge boxes (probably filled with Maggi Mee) and tons of luggage, parents hoarding around the trolleys and eager young faces (and some looking fed up with parents fussing over them(.
It can only mean one thing – students are heading off overseas!
It’s nice to know that the economic crisis has not affected the dreams of many young Malaysians to pursue their degrees abroad. Or maybe it is because of the crisis that they are taking AirAsia X.
I am in queue at the LCCT at this very moment, waiting to check in for my flight to Perth, Western Australia. It will be my first time back since 2004 (if I recall right) after having left in 2002 when I completed my degrees (yes, more than one).
I am just chilling here in queue – after all, the rush is for boarding. Who cares what time I check in.
I am excited for these kids tho – I have fond memories if Perth and I’m sure someday, they’ll be queuing up the way I am now thinking back of the good old days.
For now, I just can’t wait to see some of my friends and revisited the city that was home to me for over 2 years.
It’s homecoming. :o)
