Looking out from plane

Fiji Airways
Air Pacific has been renamed to Fiji Airways and the plane is really quite new. Clean and fresh, and sitting at the exit row is a joy. The plane was quite empty and no one sat next to me. The food itself….well, abit small. Anyways, during the flight, I enjoyed looking out the window and seeing the clouds. The clouds are so different in Australia & New Zealand. I miss this fluffy clouds.

Bananas

Bananas
These were at home waiting for my consumption :D. Bananas in Fiji taste so much nicer, and also cheaper. This is one bunch from the market. Pineapples are sweet, not sour.

Seller: How many you want? $1.50 then
Mum: ummm…
Seller (counting): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9…9 here
Mum: 9 too many. We’ll get 6

Thought we’d give this a try after Carmen mentioned it.
It was a bit hard to find as it is one of a few shops in the building. The coffee was so so, but the brown rice congee is quite nice and filling.

Chapter of the mosman job

Ka boom. Finished close to 3.6 yrs working at this job. Although I was only a parttimer, I felt I contributed more to the work than the full timers. It’s all good and time for me to move on and take over the world now.
