They had an apointment with Diktor for fix uncertain problem in his computer today. Diktor suggested that we went to his house first. After then he will tell us what the problem is.

Diktor is one of PVE fellow. He is from Sudan, 29 years old, a very funny guy. His position is pull out the organs and heart, cut the belly and dig a hole from ass. He always makes a joke or yells to somebody"Do you wanna fight!!!""What are you doing that for?" So others always like to make a joke with him as well. you know the job i do is totally boring, but the positions around him always have a good laugh. So, at the begining i wore white apron, i pulled the kidney out beside him. The position was just around him. So sometimes i felt interesting working with him. He made time passed quickly.

Back to what gonna happen today, at the begining, we followed the address which Diktor wrote down on the paper to arrived his house. He was answering the phone, and there was a woman sitting in the car in front of him. And then i saw a baby in the backseat. I was wondering who the woman and baby were. Did they have certain relationship to Diktor. Probably did, in my observation. But i didn't know the exact relationship they were.

We had a horse riding again today,scott and cherry came together with us this time. Cherry was so happy that she got a chance to rode horse. Scott had ridden horse in China before. He is a good rider.

Besides riding, we talked a lot about AQIS this time. There are two vets in the AQIS in PVE. One work for day shift, another work for the night shift. If the vet can't work then the abattoir can't kill the lamb. So Australian government takes it seriously. The AQIS really manages the quarantine and controls the quality.

Besides, there is a area vet manages the north of the NSW. She comes once a month. Everytime she comes, all the staff of PVE become nervous. Everyone is quiet and no more makes a joke. That's very weird, but i feel it's very funny.

i got a thought among these few days. I knew it's hard to change personality. If my personality is getting angry easily when something happen differently from what i thought, can i change my personality so quickly after a big thing happened. As what i said i think it's hard to change personailty, so i think it won't change so easily and quickly.

However, after big bang, something did changed. I hoped it's not just changed on the surface. I want everyone live as who you are. Not pretend everthing is fine or put real what you thought behind youself.

Of course, i still got shadow in my mind. So sometimes i still asked myself "is this will be a bomb" i was impacted by the whole thing that happened before. Anyway, base on the new situation, i hoped it will become better and better.

I live a simple and easy life in this small town. Every weekdays, I wake up in the morning, and then help to prepare the food for the lunch and dinner. After lunch, i go to work at about quarter pass two. And then finish the work at about eleven thirty. When i arrive home, sometimes it's already twelve o'clock ,sometimes even up to one o'clock. And then i eat something and go to take a shower. When i go to bed ,it's always over one ro two o'clock. Day by Day. The life is so simple that make me feel boring. We all agree that. So we think we have to change it somehow.

At the invitation of my friend of RDA, We have a new hobby now .Play tennis.

When i was young, i have played tennis once. i played tennis so bad that moment. Just one round ,my friend's brother didn't want to play with me anymore. i was so sad. i thought i was not a good player.Untill i've came to Oz. i played tennis one more time in Renmark. i was surprised that i played not so bad. i think the reason is due to some play skill transfered from table tennis. So when they invite us to play tennis, i was so glad and appreciated their invitation.

At invitation of fellow, Steve, from AQIS, we got a chance to rode horse. Well, i've never ridden horse before. It's very interesting to ride on the horseback. when i kicked the horse, he went forward.when i pull the rope to the left, the horse went to left. when i pull to the right, the horse went to right. when i pull the rope back, the horse stop. However, their back yard is not big enough for us to ride very fast. so i just ride slowly. Anyway, i was enjoyable.

本週在Tamworth有一個連續四天(7/16~19),名為Hats Off to Country的小型嘉年華會,慶祝今年已經過了一半。在這四天幾乎從白天到晚上都有歌手在一些據點駐唱,包括Pub、俱樂部、購物中心、遊客中心以及飯店,這些表演有些免費,有些則需要酌收入場費。Good,既然知道有這難得機會就一定要好好的把握,更何況我們已經錯過了一月份的鄉村音樂節,這個小型的再錯過的話,我真想去撞牆了。

但既然有這麼多間,那到底是選哪一間去比較好勒!?Scott與Cherry在因緣際會下認識了一位當地澳洲人Max,Max提議去一間Wests Diggers去聽某歌手的演唱,但是到了晚上突然改變行程,Max邀請我們到他們家喝點湯吃點東西,等時間差不多了再一起過去一間名為service club的俱樂部,反正我們也不是很清楚這些歌手,哪一間店的消費如何,反正只要確定是免費的那一定是沒有問題。

club的氛圍果然跟pub有很大的差異,在pub,經常可以看到年輕人手拿著啤酒站著大聲的聊天歡笑,店內的桌椅通常是頂多四人用的桌子,有的店有戶外空間,桌子就可以塞更多人,舞台下方的男男女女則隨著音樂搖擺著,越晚越high越多人,有Band更是High翻天,如果不是因為樂團表演的舞台比台下高了那麼一點點,台上那些人早就被台下那群野獸啃的屍骨無存了;在club則是看到一群中年以上男子坐在舞台下方長排桌椅上小聲的歡談,不然就安靜地欣賞著舞台上方歌手的表演,歌手表演完一首歌,台下給予似乎是鼓勵性的掌聲,just like go go go , one more song, you can do it.整晚的氣氛似乎維持在某個平穩的水準。真是冏,it was a very interesting experience.

我牙齒掉了,我的天呀!這下我麻煩大了!中午吃一顆饅頭的時候突然咬到一顆很硬的東西,想說饅頭裡面怎麼添加了石頭,吐出來一看,是一顆象牙白的鬼東西,心想「很像牙齒,是誰這麼天才一邊做饅頭一邊掉牙齒」,這時突然閃過一個念頭「我的!!!!不會吧!!剛剛吃饅頭的時候完全沒有牙齒被拔出來的感覺呀!」,接著我把舌頭在嘴吧裡打轉「咦!左邊的臼齒好像有點異狀,最好有片鏡子確認一下!」,一到廁所一看,機車勒!真的是我的!這下慘了,在這邊一但跟醫療有關的事情都不便宜,連澳洲人都覺得很貴,更何況是國民所得只有他們三分之一的我們,感受有如聽到天價。之前在達爾文,我的好友Vivi被鱷魚咬一口,大拇指穿了一個洞,跑去診所,光掛號費就60~80澳幣左右,看完之後又收了一筆費用。而就PVE澳洲同事Jemmy看牙醫的經驗,他去了牙醫診所一次,只將蛀牙拔掉就花了177元澳幣,那像我這種希望把臼齒留下需要牙醫先生在我嘴腔裡瞧來瞧去的不就要花上一大筆費用。

今天原本由我負責floorboy的工作,十分鐘左右主管帶著一位在boning room早班工作的台灣人Albert來接替我的位置,我則被叫去做trimming,他之前沒有看過清潔slaught floor的程序,我也只好帶著他大概走一遍。今天終於換到新的位置工作,處理羊身體的部份,這個部份如果我也會做了,就幾乎將所有trimming工作都做遍。希望有機會可以再往上升一級,但是看來很難呀。

Although people in abattoir are very nice, sometime they get a fight for the work. Here is a thing, when we work in abattoir, we do not stay at one position whole shift. We always swap with others. For example , at begining i hook the leg,and the next round i swap the guy who cut the hoof at first round. So sometime i get the hard position and sometime i get the easy one. So  when someone don't want to swap with another guy, they may have a fight. That is very dangerous because sometime they carry knifes when work.The horror.

My friends got a car accident today. They drove out of the road and rolled over on the grass.The second horror. Fortunately, they were safe. Just needed to check their inner body have got injury or not.

We went to waste management facilities this morning. Scott said that we can found something cheap there. Yes,we did. i found a jumper cables and  they found a pot and a DVD player. The jumper cables costed just 4 dollars and the pot costed 2 dollars and the DVD player costed 2 dollars as well. These were so cheap, weren't it. After then, i went to use internet in centre point shopping mall.There used to had an internet server which can quickly download, but not anymore now. But i still could find one for me to use.so i downlaod the software i need for the new laptop. I stayed there from day to night. And then I went to met Soctt, Cherry, Mark and George at Imperior Hotel. We had a drink and had fun that night.

When i woke up this morning, i had no idea what i gonna do from that moment. When i saw them, what they will say to me. Nevertheless, what i can do was faced it.And this time, i was truely touched by her apology. i thought the world would be changed, but it didn't.

In the morning, one of them couldn't stand the situation any more.She talked to her, but the situation still didn't change. Just someone expressed the feeling and thinking to another one. So it even did not close to the communication. Untill the time we went back home, she talked to us and said sorry and made a decision. However, i was so unsatisfied with the decision she made. So i thought i should expressed the anger to let her knew how unsatisfied i was. So then i pulled over the car and got off immediately. However, the situation was out of control. After i got off the car, everyone got off the car also. We just left the car on the road. And then i regretted what i've done, i just wanna expressed how angry i was ,i didn't want the situation out of control.i went back to the car and then follow them.it's dangerous to let anyone of them walked around at night. Althought we still had a quarrel on the road. But it's really too late to stayed there. it would be just fine that all of us got in the car and went back home first. we can talk everything at home. i was hoping after we all calm down, we could have a talk again.

But it's hard to asked her got in the car. She still got angry. she didn't want to see us anymore. she'd like us leave her alone. So all we can do were follow her. we were afraid that she will get into trouble. However, we failed. she got out of our sight in the shopping mall. we couldn't find her and she didn't answer the phone. I thought she might go to backpackers for one night. But in her opinion she won't stay there. instead, she would walk home. And then, it's just like what she said . she was on the way home. so we picked her up. finally, all of us got back home safely. But I had no idea what will happen tomorrow. the worst situation maybe we couldn't live together anymore.

終於,我將注音輸入法安裝完成,我又可以繼續用中文打我的日記了,我前幾天用破爛英文打的日記現在也可以銷毀了,還好那破爛英文日記還沒有po出去,還好。現在麻煩的事是要把他們在翻譯成中文,還好在這邊什麼都不多,就是時間多、讓我坐下來慢慢打,慢慢翻,而且,用英文表達不足的地方我用中文表達更容易,像用「爽」這個字來形容開心"這個「爽」字,我還真的不知道英文哪個單子可以把氣勢跟語氣形容的那麼貼切。

今天趁著早上煮飯時間,其中一個還在睡覺,趕快利用時間進行溝通,因為我很想知道為何對於上次的事情如此生氣,就我而言,蕃茄跟蛋只不過是生活上再細微不過的小事情,因為蛋要魯幾顆都可以,就算這次要魯的食材裡面沒有用到蛋,我也不會覺得應該要生氣。滷蛋沒有一定下九顆的料理方式,類似這樣的事情應該是生活中相當具富彈性的事項,不夠九顆,那八顆、七顆、六顆應該也都可以。如果說,一件事情對於一個人的行為準則有這麼深的影響,這個行為的背後應該有個無法在累積下去或受到牽動的思想,我很知道這個這麼具有爆發性的點是什麼。

The most difficult thing is getting start . It is so hard to speak out when the situation is so embarrassing. I was so afraid to touch the bomb again if I tried to said someting. There might be some bombs in my speaking. But I knew i had to did that or the situation will never be changed. So i did it. That morning, she told me the reason why she got angry. Although what she said did not really convince me, but i was glad that she would like to speak out. she cried when she spoke. It must be something deep indside. Some tears in my eyes. I hoped that will be a good start.

這一兩天他們兩依然沒有講話、氣氛仍相當詭異,很明顯的是這個地雷不是很小,只是移轉到另依個人身上,就像玩大富翁遊戲一樣,踩到地雷後移轉卡立即生效,立刻坡及到另依個人的身上。The real world is so simulative, isn't it?,我想我還不能適應。

今天一早很奇怪,一改往常的態度,竟然是很和氣的請我幫忙煮飯切菜,太奇怪了,這真的太奇怪了,難道是這個地雷很小嗎?不~今天詭異的氣氛是我身旁的那兩位,這到底發生什麼事了。

今天一早,我才知道又踩到一個地雷了,這個地雷是昨天晚餐的用料-蕃茄及蛋。事情是這樣的,昨天晚上Henry做馬鈴薯泥的時候,他打算將手邊的材料馬鈴薯、紅蘿蔔、芹菜煮一煮,混合一起做成馬鈴'薯泥球,因為我覺得將芹菜混進馬鈴薯泥的做法很奇怪,我就建議用白煮蛋代替,所以我從冰箱裡拿出了三顆蛋出來,煮成白煮蛋之後混進去。而蕃茄則是煮義大利麵時,Henry對於食材的用量沒有抓的剛好,雖然他買了一大罐的番茄醬,但是就六個人的份量而言,麵醬煮起來不夠濃稠,因此問我有沒有幾顆蕃茄可以借來用用,我瞄了一眼鍋子,看起來的確有點稀稀水水的,不過只要再煮一段時間,等水分蒸發掉應該就會變的濃稠,但是我又覺得加進新鮮番茄進去可以讓濃湯有多一層的口感,所以我就找了三顆番茄,放進蒸籠蒸、接著去皮後放進麵醬裡煮。哇啦~~~~~兩種食材換兩道料理~~

接著~~~~~~Bang!!Bom!!兩個食材換來兩道料理又換來一顆炸彈,主要是蛋,蛋是今天煮一大鍋魯肉所用到的食材之ㄧ,冰箱內雖然還有幾顆蛋,但是不夠計畫要煮的量,所以就bang bom。

報紙說每個月的第一個禮拜六早上在Tamworth有一個市集,這個市集在The Heights附近,也就是我們之前看到的那間豪宅附近。反正這禮拜也是沒事,閑來逛逛,就來這個市集走一遭,一到這個地方真是令人傻眼,大概兩個籃球場大的小公園,但是只有不到十間的小攤子,我們到的時間將近中午十二點,攤子更是收了差不多,一整個冏。

Henry昨晚提議今天晚上到我們家煮東西吃,下午我就跟Henry到Coles採買東西,他打算煮義大利麵、做馬鈴薯泥、烤雞肉片以及喝點不一樣的飲料讓大家開心開心,我們在coles大概逛不到半個小時,但是買的東西合計竟然高達80元澳幣,看Henry買東西真是很爽快的一件事,眼睛掃過去所看到的材料在幾秒內就下了決定,價格不是最大的決定因素,口味才是,選的差不多都是中高價位的食材,真的是沒有在猶豫、客氣,難怪結帳時可以高達80元。

Scott與Cherry,這對台灣背包夫妻也來參觀我們家,跟我們一起享用Henry的實驗料理之外,也聊聊他們生活上的八卦,陪我們度過愉快的一晚。

在跟Henry交換過想法後,我們倆都同意每天交換工作是最好的安排,因為trimming做一整個禮拜真的很無聊,所以我們打算再去跟主管談一、三、五,二、四這樣輪班。讓我們訝異與興奮的是,主管竟然一口就答應了,完全跟Henry之前跟他談的差很多、我猜主管的心情應該相當不錯,足以用「爽」這個字來形容。

這一周又輪到我當Floorboy。相對於作trimming的工作,floorboy是相當有趣的工作。Floorboy可以隨處走動,想休息其實也可以偷偷跑去躲起來或者晃來晃去,更有趣的是還可以跟工作夥伴聊幾句,加上原本smoker time二十分鐘休息吃東西,之前得急急忙忙的把飯塞進肚子,現在可以悠閒的一口一口吃。怎麼比較我都比較喜歡做floorboy的工作,做trimming真的是太無聊了,一天6~8個小時站下來也沒有什麼人可以說話,羊一隻一隻過來,我就一隻一隻的處裡,看的我眼都花了。但是做trimming的好處是,每小時的薪資除了可以多兩塊之外,還可以鍛鍊一下用刀技巧,說不定改天有人請假,我也可以有機會做更高階的工作,所以我還是想繼續保留做trimming,可以偶而換換工作也是不錯的。

是的。我終於狠下心的買下一台新的電腦,沒有辦法,想想還是需要。雖然覺得將近兩個月沒有使用電腦生的活上反而有更多時間去做其他事情,但是寫日記、看看電影、影集以及最重要的存取我在澳洲生活的寫照,還是不斷纏繞在我心頭。所以,我買了。這台新的電腦是宏碁Acer Eee PC 900HD。小小一台,輕巧方便,價值547元澳幣,對於簡單需求的我而言,應該是值得。
