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。

"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.

"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......
