Thanks to those of you who made it to my leaving drinks on Sunday.
It hardly seems real, but already I've been to my University, bombed the entrance exam, and done my enrollment. I hope to get my chinese language to a decent level (eg. would be good enough to study at University) in the next 6 - 12 months.
My "magic phone" (VOIP SIP phone) just worked like ..err.. magic, when I plugged it in here. So if you are in Perth, email me for a local number you can call me on. We're in the same timezone, too. If you're not in Perth, and can figure out SIP addresses, drop me a note.
