::: Daisuke's Farewell Desert :::
日曜日の朝、大ちゃんがシェアハウスを出て行く。
One of my housemate Daisuke is leaving on Sunday morning.

ワーホリVisaが切れて、しばらくの間、ビザナシ生活だったのだが、
申請中だったSeasonal Work Permitが9月末まで降りて、
友達のPaulさんのところを経て、ファームワークに出かけるのだ。

His visa-less life has finished yesterday.
He finally got a seasonal work permit until end of September so he is leaving to the farm work after visiting his friend Paul-san.

数週間のラウンジ滞在のはずだったが結局約2ヶ月に。。。
When I think back, Daisuke stayed more than 2 months in a lounge...

本日はお休みだったため、大ちゃんのためにチーズケーキを作った。
I had a day off today so I made New York Cheese Cake for him and ate with everyone.

::: Great Grandma's 101 years old Birthday :::
I rang home to see how my great grand mother is.
And my mother told me that I was right.
She got better and could walk again, could eat and could go to the toilet by herself again.
I was so happy to hear that.

Because my mother was so serious last time I rang her and said even the doctor told them it can happen anytime...

Well I was so surprised but so happy that my great grand mother made her 101 years old birthday this year!

I am really happy for her.

I told my mother that I am going to Perth in August and she just said, HAVE FUN GIRL.
So nice.

::: Going back to Perth in August :::
8月に一度パースに戻ることにした♪
I have decided to go back to Perth in August.

親友のTitaneがモーリシャスからGod's Stuff画集出版パーティーのために戻ってくるのだ!

My best friend Titane is coming back from Mauritius to publish for her God's Stuff book's in Australia.

「NZにきてよ~」とラブコールしてみたけれど、
家を引き払ったり、パーティー準備などで忙しいらしく、

「無理」とのこと。

I send her love letter saying come and see me in Auckland but she said she wil be busy preparing the party and for cleaning up the house.

ということで、本日チケット予約+購入しました♪
(日本にいるママにまだ言ってないけど・・・)

Anyway I booked and paid for the ticket already.
I haven't talked my mother in Japan...

8月19日より数ヶ月パースだ~!!!
またみんなとキャッチアップ出来ると思うと楽しみです♪
今度はJaneのお姉ちゃんJulieの住んでいるお家にお世話になることになります。
Jonoも実家から引っ越してくるとのことで、楽しくなりそうです。わ~い♪

I will be in Perth from 19th of August for few months now.
I am so excited about catching up with my friends.
I will be staying at Julie's place (Jane's sister) with Jono.
Jono is moving in there. It will be so fun!

My friend Mizue and I went to have dinner where I used to go in Perth.

We ordered the salmon pasta and focaccia.

b0038810_9222311.jpg

The service was bad and taste like a shXt.

Anyway I wouldn't go back there anymore.
We still had fun together talking.

After dinner we walked to Symonds St bus stop together.
I took a photo at the trafic light just in front of St Pauls Church where I had my graduation when I was at Art School Student.

::: Great day with Host parents :::
Gayle organised lunch with her old friend Wendy.
We picked her up from the hair dresser and came home.

b0038810_921720.jpg

We had a great sandwich together.
b0038810_965572.jpg

I haven't seen her for long time and she hasn't changed.
Recently Wendy lost so much weight but everything else was the same.
We enjoyed talking over things we used to do.

Wendy's husband Graham came and joined us after after when he came to pick Wendy up.
He hasn't changed either.
Always making us laugh from the begining to the end.

Dad(Graham too) is always quiet.
He just lost his mother recently.
It must have been hard for him she was a great lady always happy and had sense of humor even she was OLD could joke around!!!
I miss her smile too.

After Wendy and Graham's gone home, I helped her with computer and went for dinner at Dad's Sister Barbara's place.
Gayle bought my favorite Caramel Mud Cake from Cheese Cake Shop to take with us.

I bought 2 bottles of wine to take with me.
It was great.
Look at the dish!

b0038810_995760.jpg

Barbara's Daughter Wendy and her husband and daughters were there.

::: Host Parents' @ Connifer Grove :::
I visited Gayle and Graham's place where I used to homstay for a year.

It was a great one hour bus trip from the city.

As far as the bus goes, it gets colder.
Off course the air is much crisp and fresher compare to downtown.

I couldn't recognise some of the area but off course things changes in 12 years.

I have asked the bus driver to drop me off at the entrance of Conifer Grove where I used to get off the bus.

I remembered how I get to their house from the bus stop.
It was great trip.
We had takeaway dinner together with red wine I brought.

Talking to Gayle and Graham for long time.
Nothing changed, they were the same as before.
I felt how lucky I was to see them and still have friendship with them.
