So my friend, who I’ve known for over 10 years, decided she wanted to immigrate to Australia, the land “Down Under”, and live with her boyfriend as well as the kagaroos and koala bears. Its such a long haul flight of 24 hours with a 2 hour stop in Dubai, it’s absolutely ridiculous! I thought Hong Kong was a long enough flight! I would really love to visit her but I would need to save up and wait till she settles in her new home and has a place for me to stay.
She has already planned this since last year and has even had a long holiday including an internship at a designer PJ company. It was so exciting listening to her stories :) She arrives tomorrow and I’ll miss her very very much. I will have to resort to using Skype or Facebook to keep in contact. Boo~ she is the second friend whom is dear to me to be going to live overseas; it makes me wanna go too…
To say our goodbyes and farewells, I organised a girlie day out filled with good food and shopping in London. Our original option was Brighton but the rail works were operating that day so London it was!
I took her firstly to Marco Pierre in Sloane Square for a 2-course steak lunch with champagne cocktail. It was delicious and she loved it! I would totally recommend this restaurant but please be warned about it’s price; I was lucky enough to have a Groupon voucher at the time.
Afterwards we took a gander around the shops at Oxford Circus and Piccadilly. We didn’t find anything we liked but had tried on so many outfits we would never have bought or be seen wearing! It was very funny. Ended up waltzing into Primark since we felt like we wanted to buy something but didn’t want to part with too much money. Tee hee.
Wish you a very safe flight Eva! <3
Do you have a friend or family who has moved abroad that you miss very much?
