Today, I’ve visited a friend who just came from
. She is having a holiday here for 6 months. She has been here 3 times in Philippines but never meet her before, she was a common friend of my friends who told me she was also in the same state. Actually, I’ve met here in our home town a couple of times and she’s been to our house once. Of how many states in South Australia Australia, what a coincidence that she was also going to live her in for good one day together with her partner. How it feels like in a country like this you know someone who came from the same town as mine in my homeland who is going to reside here soon. It’s just easy to get along or hang around with her because we have few common stories to tell about. We don’t need to know each other well or gaining the trust as a friend but we can get on well in anyways. South Australia
By the way, we only had a contact today on facebook and soon decide that we both meet, knowing the workplace of her partner was only 10-15 minutes away from my house or only 5 minutes from my work. Isn’t that cool? She gave me the location of the workplace but not the exact address, I thought it was somewhere along the main highway but it isn’t. I drive slowly passing some steel buildings, looking the street number she told me and business name of the shop but I can’t see along the road. I was then lost, so I turn left on side street to pull over and look up on gps, lucky when I key in the business name it's registered. It was my guide to lead me straight to the right direction.
I saw her waiting for me outside the shop as I’ve told before I left the house and there it goes we had coffee, a long chat about our common friends, the life in Australia and photo taking. It was a lovely day to spend some time with a friend. It’s only the start, we will still keep in touch and hopefully we will see each other soon with our partners.
