First Things First

Since this is not my 1st time being alone in a foreign county, I kinda know what to do once I arrived Perth. 

The reason why I need to get a sim card first is because I need the 3g internet! I need my GPS! 
It took a long time for me to figure out where I was going before I could find the phone store. 
Of course I asked some random people there, but somehow they're not much of a help. Here some photos I took while wondering around the city.
Eventually, I found a Vodafone store, and bought $29/month deal with 500MB internet. Although the 3g is 10x slower than the ones in Brunei, but atleast the map's working! I had to be super patient though..

And immediately I used my phone to make appointments for house viewings. 

With my google map working, I was then capable of going to the Uni without the need to ask anyone. On the way, I made a friend with a very cheerful Canadian girl :) She made my day. 
I was captivated by the beautiful campus upon my arrival to UWA.. 
Notice the giant 'breathing' flower in the middle of the pond, I thought it was the wind that made it looked like its alive.

Went to the International Student Centre and Student Support. Thought the staffs in the Housing Service will help me find a home, but all they did is giving me a thick guide booklet and led me to the computer room for me to use the net to find an accommodation myself. But that was to be expected anyway. 
I spent hours and hours in the computer room day after day searching for accommodations close to UWA. 

It's been nearly 10 days since I arrived Perth, 
but no luck finding a place near Uni. 
I was only allowed to live in Townsend Lodge for a week, so I was worried at 1st. 

So where am I currently living now? :) 
Wait til the next post.

The uni looks gorgeous! A pity that the uni hardly helped you at all with finding accommodation, but good look to you! Hope you'll be able to find a nice place close to uni soon!
