Long weekend just went past and I feel even more tired than when the weekend started.
Ironically I started back up on my fitness classes that week because I thought I was neglecting my body.
Work has been interesting…
Ideally I would love to work from home, I just haven’t discovered a means for it yet…
The past 2 Saturday mornings were spent attending and helping out at the DHAA First Aid Course.
Since a couple of months before the Cambodia-Thailand trip, I’ve definitely slipped up and kind of plateaued off in my self study.
C’est la vie
Time to get back on track…

The thing with working, not only in dental but other fields too, is getting the time-off! Lucky for me I can pretty much pick and choose when I want to take time-off so long as I let the clinic know before hand. Unlucky for me, whenever the clinic closes I’m out of work.
But generally I’m pretty lucky, my friends have booked their time-off up to a year in advance! In contrast, I block my time-off about 6 months in advance. I guess it’s because I don’t have to fight amongst colleagues to get time-off, if I don’t work then there’s no patient to book. yAy!
So anyway, I had already blocked out some time in July – August, but due to changes in circumstances I now have the flexibility to move this around. I had planned on flying to the Eastern states to have a look-see around Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and even check out employment opportunities. I mean after spending ~85% of my life living in Australia, I would have liked to say I’ve been to the other states!
Well it’s not my fault that it’s cheaper to fly overseas rather than interstate!!
I’ve been “busying” myself looking at places to go and things to see, checking out accommodation and flights. I think I’ve caught the travel-bug off my 姐 and 姐夫 who’s going to Japan in a few weeks!

Watching the Olympics and listening to all this talk about Beijing makes me really miss that place! All I hear and see is Beijing this and Beijing that and I hate that I’m not there to explore all the really cool things that they did just for the Olympics =( I even missed out on trying out the new Beijing International Airport by a week!! 天天听着看着中国的旅游 hotspots ，新和旧的东西我全部都想看！非常可惜！
I can’t help but tune myself into the Olympic events everyday, especially now that we can watch it on CCTV! The problem with Channel 7 is that they give a lot of air time to swimming and other popular Australian sports, concentrating on the Australian athletes because that’s what our Australian market demands of them.
But this time around, CCTV gives me the choice of what to watch. I don’t think I’ve ever watched softball, equestrian, weight-lifting, judo， badminton， 乒乓比赛 什么的 during the Olympics before…
虽然我可以看别的运动，我还喜欢看游泳比赛，diving (especially synchronized diving), gymnastics… mainly the sports that involves a lot of gravity defying and/or contortion of the body O_o; The least favourite for me has to be the equestrian competition and the white water rafting.

On a side note, I’m starting to get really frustrated with always hearing 中国加油，《insert athlete name》加油，《insert team name》加油，《insert country name》加油. My goodness, how many times do they have to say “Jia You!” at least mix it up a bit… isn’t there something else in Chinese besides 加油??!
