I was fortunate to have been given an Australian visa once again last year. The visa is valid for 3 months stay with no work, no further stay but with minimum of study for 3 months.
Since my sister and her family is having a vacation at the end of year last year, they booked my flight last Nov. 22 and I flew immediately. I was so happy to be back again in Australia after 8 long years since I have been here. I love the country, the people, the way of life and more.. so I was excited that my visa was approved.
It was my first time to experience Christmas and New Year in Australia and it's very different from what I am used to in the Philippines. I can't say that I love it because it was just like an ordinary day except for the joy in opening of the gifts.
With the 3 months that I have been here, i have explored a lot of places like beaches, churches, restaurants, shopping malls and more and I love it.
Wishing there will be another year that I will be here. I love Australia and I will dearly miss it very soon..
