Day 0

I boarded the Greyhound Australia bus at the Franklin bus station at Adelaide, South Australia around 7:45 p.m. It is to take me to Melbourne with an ETA of 6 a.m. the following day. We were scheduled to take 2 pit stops in the 10-hour roadtrip. Yes. It was like my flight from Manila to Adelaide. It took me that loooong. It sucked cuz I couldn’t sleep and I thought I was coming down with something cuz I was starting to feel sick.

Day 1

me6 a.m. arrived at the Franklin bus station at Melbourne [it’s funny how they name streets the same way. Hahaha.] a little before six so I had to wait for my friend to come pick me up. I wasn’t surprised to find out that he woke up late. Hahaha. I just walked out of the terminal stood on the curb smoking and conversed about education systems in different countries [mainly about the differences between American and British influences] and the Commonwealth Games with a Uni student waiting for his friend to pick him up, too.

Yes, I was sick. I was beginning to have symptoms of the flu and I had an eye infection. This much I found out when I went to the toilet to freshen up after that long bus ride.

club1It didn’t stop me from going out that night, though. Hahaha. After like a couple of hours in my friends car going from the CBD to the West of Melbourne then headed South East. Errands. He had to take care of some errands. Oh, well. I slept in the car most of the time anyway. We got to the place where I’d staying, we settled in, ate, talked a bit then I slept.

club2First on the itinerary was He wanted to take me clubbing. How can I resist? Ha. He wanted me to see the clubs he DJ’d in at one time or another. First on the list was Chasers. Cool place. Got there around 12:30 a.m. I reckon. It’s not overflowing but it was busy. Hiphop music but mostly commercialised tracks that it somehow annoyed me. Heh. We took our time dissing the DJ and Aussie chicks dancing. Don’t get me wrong, he started it. Hahaha. I just had to agree that it did look weird. Can you imagine a white chick weighing around 130 lbs with thighs, 10″ in diameter, dancing to hiphop and her movements are alternating rotations of legs with hips thrown forward, all done with a steady torso? Sorry. But I just think it’s not right!

club3Anyway, after a bottle of Stella, we headed to a very posh club called Seven. I liked the atmosphere much better. I love the red interiors with all the big lanterns and lounges. There are even portions where lounges are separated by big curtains for *privacy*. Hahaha. Not that they really use it cuz what was it that I saw that night? Noooo. I’m not gonna tell. Teeheehee. It’s not too busy though even if it was just 2 a.m. And they were playing old school hiphop, which was pretty cool in my book. We didn’t really stay long since I’m not feeling too good and he wanted me to check out one last club. Off I went to the cold streets of Melbourne once more.

It’s Platform One. It’s a quaint club, really. Clubbers are mostly Asians, which I really find funny. It has this tunnel look to it. I reckon it was an old train station converted to commercial establishments and this club got to use 2 tunnels. Why two? I really am not sure but they segregated 2 kinds of music in one place. One tunnel dedicated to House Music and the other, to HipHop. Both have their own bars and lounges but they share one entrance. It’s cool but I was vaguely unsettled by all of it. Perhaps I was just sick, that’s all.

When we got home, we were both hungry. Found some left over spaghetti from dinner, heated it and enjoyed every bite.

Hey, I miss *my* stool in that kitchen. It’s mine!

Humor Me.

[…] Okay, today’s like a spill-over from Day 1’s clubbing adventure because I ended up hitting the sack around 8 a.m. then waking up around two-ish in the afternoon with a severe sore throat, headache and was at the brink of a cold-flu outbreak. Uh, I already had the sniffles and cough so I vowed not to touch a single stick of cigarette that day. […]
