..bERRa bErrA viA cAnbErRa..

it's now the time to announce...our first excursion of 2010......(drum roll....)..B.ed TESOL Cohort 1 Canberra Excursion!!!!..
this is the first event as a cohort and lectures go out and have some fresh air (out of kinda-tired-pack-first-few weeks..)..hehe.
departed from MUV on Saturday, 2oth March around 7.00 a.m..phew..(boys are much earlier than girls~~)..very excited for the journey, first stop at R& R somewhere we do not know..haha.. beautiful scenery along the way to Canberra and damn tired..it's 3 HOURS yaw!!!!

arrived at Parliment House around 11.00 a.m, we were taken on tour across the whole building..from the ground floor till the top, from the authentic pattern of decoration till the significant of aborigines, from the concrete to abstract, and from the Parliament hall to gift shop..the most must-visit part was rooftop view!..all i can say that it's awesome!..we can see clearly the view of Canberra on top of the parliament house..pretty cool huh?..hehe..

we continued our excursion to National Museum which not very far from the Parliament house.
having our lunch by the riverside, we explored the museum just about 1 hours..it was splendid views that we can see lots of aboriginal stuff that remind us to Australia movie..(the one that Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman acted in..)..bought some souvenirs and postcards from the gift shop, and then we continued the excursion to the War Memorial..

not much time we spend at the War Memorial, just a brief photo stop before we continue our '3 hours' back to the university..

it was a memorable experience with Pamela, Dulcy and Sue..lots of things we have learnt about Australia and absolutely looking forward for the next excursion with them..till then, adieu~

If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job.
