Just the same

(Dear English reader, please scroll down to find the ‘click’ for English translation)

回来多伦多约一个星期了。 这阵子我都与时差的不适'战斗'着。多伦多与吉隆坡的时差为十二个小时。这里的中午十二点即吉隆坡的午夜十二点。 所以,我在中午会很疲倦,会睡上好几个小时。晚上呢,就会睡不着,或早上四,五点就爬起身来。这两天,好了些。


只是,心情有点不同了。上次来此,算是放自己一个长假,也是为了尝试多伦多的生活,见见Ed 的家人朋友。这次,这里变得熟悉了。而且,完成了在墨尔本的学业,也变卖或捐赠了在墨的一切。现在,没了这些牵挂。也许,算是新生活的真正开始吧。

可是,还在等着加拿大的永久居民证,暂是游客身份。再说,我还要再考药剂师的执照,才可以工作。加上,Ed的工作形式多为合约式。我们可能会再搬到别地也难说。听起来有点困难重重。哈! 这证明爱情有多伟大,把我从老远吸引过来 ! (或也是盲目的 😉 )


现在, 我只想要好好享受多伦多夏天的阳光。这也是我要早点回来的原因。上个冬天把我冷得怕了。虽夏天已过了一半, 可我就喜欢现在的阳光, 不是熨人的热, 只是懒懒地温暖。 Ed也已迫不急待地为我编排了一系列的节目。:)

I have been back to Toronto for almost one week. Unfortunately, I was struggling with jet lag for the past one week. There are 12 hours difference between Kuala Lumpur and Toronto. 12 noon in Toronto is 12 midnight in Kuala Lumpur. So, I would feel extremely tired in the afternoon here and ended up sleeping for a few hours. Then, I would have troubles getting to bed at night or would wake up at 4 or 5 in the early morning. Anyway, I am getting a little better for the last two days.

Although I had left Toronto for about 4 months ago, things are just as the same when I left, except the seasonal changes. I guess the only difference is I feel slightly different now. My previous arrival in Toronto was for a long vacation, checking the city and to meet Ed’s family and friends. This time around, instead of feeling new to this city and people, I feel familiar. On the other hand, I had finally completed my studies and wrapped up everything in Melbourne. Without such worries and attachments, I started to feel that this is my true new beginning of life.

However, I am still waiting for the approval of permanent residency in Canada, hence I am still only holding a visitor status in Toronto. Moreover, I have to resit the pharmacist registration examination and redo pharmacy training in Canada in order for me to start working as a pharmacist. Also, nature of Ed’s job is contract base and there is always a possibility that we have to move to somewhere else. Well, all sound too uncertain and challenging. I guess this prove the power of love (for me to come all this way) ! Or it is blind love 😉

Anyway, I don’t want to think about it too much now. Life always have its own path. It will slowly evolve and unfold. I am interested to see what this will take me to.

For now, I just want to enjoy the summer in Toronto. This is the main reason for me to return here earlier than planned. I had enough of winter ! Although there are only a few weeks left for summer, I love the sunshine during this period. It is not burning hot but comfortably warming. I really enjoy it. Ed has also planned many summer weekend away for me. 🙂
