Wife helped a lot in packing and the whole Friday morning was a pause and rest from the road trips and preparation for the traveling back to Malaysia. I went to the mosque on Preston for Friday prayer. The khutbah talked about being patient, “Fasbir, wassabri jamiila,” roughly translated to “Be patient with the most excellent patience.” If you think you’re going through hard times, be reminded of the hardship and calamity that Rasullah (p.b.u.h) went through… and we should follow the true example of Allah’s messenger.

On the way to Vic market, I saw a graffiti all the way up on the building. How did a graffiti get that high?

We were looking for kangaroo shoes again by request from dad. Surprisingly to me, these kangaroo shoes are hard to find. Maybe for normal types shoes they are. Kangaroo skins are normally in the form of football or soccer shoes. The hawkers told us that the European pay so much more for kangaroo products. No wonder. We found a pair but I wasn’t sure if dad would like it.

Much later, we were at the professional bookstore for my wife’s final semester books. 12 semesters are quite a journey. I only had to do 8 and 3 or 4 short ones.

Next stop was Next Byte since I needed to purchase a Mini DisplayPort to DVI converter. They had the cables in stock now but the price was not AUD$25 as labeled on others. The price tag of AUD$45 was exactly like the ones we saw in Chadstone.

The library had this tour on Shell origin in Australia. Apparently, Shell had helped with mapping then and even producing Braille map along the way.
