We took this trip during the first school holiday this year... 13 th March 2005 to 18 March 2005.. This is my dot's first oversea trip.. she was very excited about everything... the whole process of getting/booking the tickets, making all the arrangements i.e. shopping for appropriate clothes, getting the passport and using it to go through the automatic custom/machine. She was very proud of herself when she managed to go through the machine without a hitch. The whole ordeal made her confident about herself and she told us that she's not going to be shy with people anymore.

But... just before boarding, she was greeted by one of the friendly MAS staff... asking her 'adik nak gi mana?' or in english it means 'young lady, where're you going?'. With all the excitements, she answered 'Malaysia'. All of us couldn't help ourselves but laughed at her answer. What a 'cruel' thing to do to a six years old... luckily her spirit was up again when she saw the tv/game on board the MAS777 to Sydney... she has forgotten about the incident.

14 March 2003
We arrived at the Sydney airport around noon... passed through the custom check point without any problem. At first everything at the airport seems almost like backhome to Alliya except when it's time to freshen up. The restroom was clean and sparkle but the only problem is... there's no water pipe attached in the individual bathroom... she had her first culture shock. So the next few minutes... that was all that she could think about... questions like... 'mom, why there's no water pipe/hose in the toilet?' or ' how do people here clean up after themselves?' kept pouring out of her mouth. We had to give her a 'crash course' on world culture.....then only she realized that there are other people outside Malaysia not only with different looks but also different 'cultures' and lifestyles.

After freshening up, we decided to take a bus to the city since we still have a few hours to kill before our next domestic flight to Gold Coast. The weather was sunny with occasional light drizzle. Alliya was smiling from ear to ear when she first sighted the Sydney Opera House... all the clips that she remembered from the movie 'Finding Nemo' rushed through her head. But after all the excitements had subsided... she asked 'is this all?'.
