I’m cold. It’s sunny, but I’m cold. I though that the gold coast would have been warmer. I was wearing a jacket yesterday. Not my idea of a nice warm holiday. Went to Hungry Jacks (Burger King) yesterday and realized that the Burger King in Japan is much better. The bacon and cheese here sucks. Hopefully New Zealand will be better. You cant even drink in public here. Oh I miss Japan so much already. There are so many fat and ugly people over here it’s just sad. Sure Japan has its bad side too, its just everyone does there best to ignore/hide the problems.

The family took some old style photos yesterday. We all dressed up in cowboy style clothes, it was very interesting. One big issue I had with the service was that they wouldn’t provide you with a digital copy. I wanted to photoshop out all the mistakes and so on, but they would only provide a printed photo. There was also a shooting range, but it was way too expensive. Around $90 to shoot a .44 (or .40) magnum with 40 rounds. After the photo shoot we went bowling for a bit. I didn’t do too bad even though I haven’t bowled for a long time. I managed about three strikes.

Other than that, all I’ve done in Aussie is spend too much money (It seems as if the cost of living is higher than in Japan!) and eat/drink. Not really much fun. Hopefully I will be heading over to Movieworld or Dreamworld tomorrow. That should be good. Problem is it’s school holidays over here so there will be a whole bunch of noisy kids too. Damn.

One other thing. It’s freaky that I can understand everyone around me. Upon arrival it felt eerily strange. I even spoke Japanese to the lady at the currency exchange place! Its just so foreign. As the song says “I think I’m turning Japanese, I think I’m turning Japanese I really think so” etc. Freaky. I don’t know if its a good or a bad thing. I think I’m alot more comfortable in Japan. Maybe Japan has made me soft. Who cares? All I know is I just feel a little out of place – at least in Australia. It will be interesting to see what New Zealand is like.
