MARKET

メルボルンといえば、火、木、金、日のでっかいマーケット。。
野菜が1キロ80円くらいで買えちゃう驚きの安さ!!
食料も底を突きはじめたので火曜はマーケットに。。
うってるおじちゃんの威勢がいいこといいこと。

ちょっとグレープでも買おうかしらってグレープに近づいたら最後、
おじちゃんが血管浮き出しながら、
"2 kg !! 2kg!! lady!! フゥ~(@'3')/ "
とかいいながらノリで早くもがっさり袋に詰めはじめてしまった、、、
はかりに乗せたら、なんと3キログラム。!?
一体私はどんなにグレープが好きなんだ、、、??
”そんなに食べれないから減らして!”
って言ったら、
気に入らなかったらしい。
1.5㌔以下にする気がどうやらないらしいので、それでおれてしまった。。あぁ~。
こんなにどうしよう、、。

ところで私、もうすぐgoo blogに移行しまーす☆絵文字にやられた。

最近はもっぱらテキストとの格闘で、部屋にこもっている。
よって、ダーウィンやバリでほんのりこんがりしてた肌も徐々に戻ってきてる感じ。
これでやっと日本人に見えるはずです。
バリにいた時は、なぜかよくローカルだと勘違いされてたんだけど、そんな馴染んでたのか?!すっピンだったからか、、、?
私は、中国人をはじめ韓国人、インドネシア人、シンガポール人、果ては中国系イギリス人まで幅広くいけるらしい。
ぜひ、この特性を生かせる仕事を探したい。

もう9月。。

月日が経つのは早いね。。
もう9月です。
バリ放浪ののち、ダーウィンに一時戻り、8月末に真冬のメルボルンに戻ってきました。いつのまにやら。

もういろーんなことがあるんだけど、自分のパソコンが無い今はつらつらと書くのが、めんどうなので、、、日本に帰ってからちゃんと書きます。きっと。

せっかくBLOG作ったのに何にも書かないのは、もったいないから、簡単に日記かこうかな。。今日は楽しかったーとかそんな感じで。

ええっと、
バリにいたときに経験した事の影響もあり、私、自然療法の勉強を始めました!!

偶然!?メルボルンに戻った次の週くらいからワークショップがあることを知って、行っちゃえーー!!みたいな感じで、久しぶりに本気で自分の背中を押してみました。
今見逃したら、いつ捕まえるんだろうと考え出したらねぇ、、、、、
これも与えられてるチャンスなんだ!!と思って噛りついてみました。。

そんな感じで、今日はワークショップ4回目終了。
今日ははじめて瞑想なるものの集まりに参加しました。。。カルトじゃないよ 笑
--------------------------------------
FULL MOON MEDITATION

響きからしてかなり怪しい。。
恐る恐る会場へ、、、
駐車場は車でいっぱい!
入ってみて”どんな人が来てるんだろう。こえー”っていうはらはら感は見事に打ち砕かれました。。
普通のおばあちゃんから、ちーちゃい子までなんか町内集会みたいな乗りできて来てるし。
2時間ぐらいでおひらき。
さらっと。
なんかこれまでもってたステレオタイプが見事にあれ?って感じだったので、がっかり?でもほっとした?

でも日本って自然療法とか、そういうのに対して間違ったイメージが広がってしまっているし、宗教とかの影響を受けて(特に裏で営利を目的とした新興宗教とか)自然療法そのものが持つ意味が上手く人に伝わらない状況ができてしまってるんだろうね。
日本のテレビでスピリチュアル代表といえば江原さん?
色々な派?対立する団体?があるとはいえ、彼や細木さんや、、、えーと、あのー、浮気は男の文化だっていった人って誰だっけ?
ま、いいか。他の有名人はよく知らないけれどテレビを通して、目にみえないもの全般にある人々のイメージがいい意味で変化していくことは、とっても良い事なんじゃないかと。
そんな感じで。
で、
オーストラリアって自然の力とか、勉強するまでもなく皮膚で感じられる場所だから人々のそういうものに対する態度の柔軟さにビックリだよ。
でも、それはそれで、違う問題も起きるみたい。
たとえば、リラクゼーションとかマッサージとかの学校がたーくさんあって学びの環境に恵まれているぶん、それを職業として始める人が多い。
でも、たーくさんのひとがちょっと学校に行っただけでその後すぐ開業しちゃうから、本当に経験を重ねて技術を持った本物を見つけるのが難しいんだって。
だからここオーストラリアでも、そんなのいんちきだよーって言う人もやっぱいる。

今週もテキストに噛り付いてやりますよ。
今日は長い一日でした。

"KAKADO, LITCHFIELD, KATHERINE NATIONAL PARKS"

I have almost forgotten to talk about the tour to the 3 national parks in Nartern territory.
It was 4 day tour in a rush!!
I saw crocodiles, birds, rock arts, waterfalls, and swam in some of the pools.
We slept outside in swags under the stars.

My favorite spot in the tour was the top of "jimjim falls"!!
It was just beyond the word.....haa---.
It took us 2 hours to get to the top, which was quite hard but the view was worth it!
It was thrill to swim in the pool which has a note saying "beware of crocodiles" eventhough I knew that it was safe in the season.

"FREE ACCOMMODATION"

I have been working at the hostel for free accommodation on Saterdays and Sundays.
sweeping and mopping in the rooms and changing the sheets and pillow cases of checked out beds.

17 th of JULY, 2005
This hostel has many colorful sheets and pillow cases. the color range is from black or white simple design to pinky pretty one.
On this day,
when I was working I found a pillow case with flower print on it and another one with fringe around it...

"so cute, really cute (a bit too much, on the edge...), but still alright, within the acceptable range." I thought to myself.

But as I tried to put the cover with fringe on the pillow, I realized that it had particular strange shape.
It didn't fit on a rectangular pillow at all......
So I checked its shape really carefully.......
and found it had a SHAPE OF HEART!!
I couldn't keep myself concentrating on my work confronting this unacceptable fact.

I know it is far beyond my business what desigh to choose for pillow cases, but I dare say

a pillow case with fringe in the shape of a heart


is too romantic and fairy design at least for backpackers in Outback Northern Territory.

"CARWASH"

I had worked for a car detailer as a carwasher from 8:00 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon on Monday to Friday from 28th of June to 14th of July.
I had washed over 30 cars everytime under the sun which raised the temperature to over 30 degrees almost everyday.
frankly, I am happy to finish the work.

REASON 1 : HEAT
the heat over 30 degrees almost everyday.
you can experience the real "Greenhouse Effect" inside the car.


REASON 2 : PAY
It was only about $340 per week after tax.
that's almost noooooooooooothing.


REASON 3 : MANAGER
I know that his favorite word is "fuc****"
He can't finish his every sentence without the word "fuc****" in it.
You can hear him say sometimes scream the word over 100(?) times in a day.

EX,>> Q. kakko wo tekisetuna goku de umenasai
.

" It's ( ) hot today!! I'm ( ) sick of this ( ) heat!!
Have you got the ( ) phone call from ( ) blah, blah, blah,
( ) great.
( ) shit, It's already ( ) 12:00. Let's have ( ) lunch."

I'm just telling you the pure fact, mate.
I have learnt" Too much is Too much "

17, JULY,2005 "CAN BOAT RACE @ MINDIL BEACH"

There was an event in which some companies make their own boats with a large number of cans and compete in the race!

Winner can receive a prize to the value of $1,000!!
My friend took part in the race as a member of the biggest club in Darwin which he worked at.
I missed the race, but he just said,"We came last."
Don't worry, Be happy.

Indigenous music festival

It was the festival about aboriginal culture and their traditional music and dance, which was great!!

But not a few aboriginal people at the festival were shouting and quarreling in their own language.
Since I came to Darwin, I think I have seen many aboriginal people having quarrels on the street.
I don't know if it has something to do with their nature or I was just in the spot at the time by chance.

Anyway, what I enjoyed most was watching my friend who was really mad about dance music, dancing and completely traveling in his own world among aboriiginal people.
I think you can imagine easily how brilliantly he danced in the spotlight, if you know him!

"INDO FESTIVAL"

Have you ever seen Indian dance performance??
It is amazingly hypnotic!!
I was thoroughly in a hypnotic state during the performance.

There were many dance performers from around Australia.
A theme of one of them was "the fusion of HIPHOP and INDIAN style"It seemed really cool.
But I think I expected too much.
One of the guy in the group was alright, doing ROBOT MOVEMENTS hitting all the points in the music he remixed.
But honestly, I far prefer
"KOROKKE (croquette)
--a Japanese comedian

who is really good at taking robot movements in his jokes.
Good or bad,
The guy just reminded me of a Japanese comedian.

things had happened in darwin so far in brief

1,JULY,2005
"FIREWORK FESTIVAL"



On this day, people in Darwin are just crazy and lose theirselves in shooting off fireworks litarally everywhere in Darwin alllllllllllllllllllll night!!
Not to speak of beach, they were setting off fireworks on the street, in the bush, and even under the electric wire!!
absolutely crazy!
In Darwin, people are allowd to set off fireworks only once a year on this day, so it is natural for them to be so crazy and celebrate the special day to the maximum.
but to me, it just seemed like a riot raised by all the citizen in Darwin. I hope that no one have got injured during the day......
