Yeah I'm only renting in a share house so one months worth of rent is $720, plus I still get paid for two weeks of it, so I guess that makes it a lot easier

you sound like you're restless again anyway SM, maybe a move to the west side ?

Funny you say that, I've applied for a few fifo jobs over there lately, resource prices aren't doing me any favours right now though.

I don't know, I flew jetstar I think.

Bali has changed though. Lots of antisocial europeans there now, heaps of Germans and Russians and they have horrible surf etiquette and even worse manners. They are so rude to the local people, I didn't like that part.

Also they are building an intercontinental hotel in Cangguu, so get in there while you can if you like that part ..

Lawyers, parking wardens, real estate agents and sex offenders are definitely terrible but none of them come close to couriers. Their companies too. Fuck everything about and even remotely related to couriers. Fuck them.

It was an awesome gig for the time i did it, but i was on call basically 24/7 and not really having a life or making the money to justify such time consumption. The cold truth is that you need a network and significant capital, neither of which i have here to really make my own name here.
Plus i just miss the beach and the 6 month summers in Perth. Ive had a good run in canada and regret nothing, but its time to think about the next 20 years for me.

One last summer here to send me off.

I just read an article recently about foreign land/property "ownership" in indonesia being in jeopardy through some potential new policy that has a lot of expats in bali sweating, and they mentioned the influx of bogan and culturally insensitive euros.... Such a fucking shame that a paradise like that is losing it's soul.

If i head back for a trip will definitely be getting away to some remote areas for waves without the bullshit. I have no interest in Kuta any more.

Good time to get out anyway - the Canadian RE market is headed off a cliff, just a bit before Australia.

It's just dangerous because the locals rent out fibreglass boards to everyone, then a big set comes and 5 people dive off their 8 foot boards and they go smashing through the whitewash.

I ended up riding a soft top half the time due to so many people dropping in and I didn't want to injure someone seriously (as people don't mean to drop in, but no one has told them to look inside first)

Anyway,

1st world problems

Yeah mate, trips to the fridge are my main reason for leaving the couch. On the plus side already had a day off tomorrow and a scheduled doctors appointment in the late arvo, so I'll get some medical attention and hopefully I'll be a bit more mobile by then. Still hurts like a bastard though.

Yeah mate it started improving yesterday arvo, I managed to hobble to the car and get to the doctors and it's better today, only walking with a slight limp and back at work. Doctor agrees with us that it's most likely gout. Doc didn't really mention meds at this stage beyond voltaren for the inflammation, just dietary stuff. Reckon I'm off the beers for a month or so though.

Don't worry lads, i'm sure we'll all come good soon, I had to suspend my box member ship for a month due to me skinning my whole palm / various other injuries, pretty frustrating,

finally coming good

also, anyone recommend any gloves to use? I just need to protect the palm of my hand, doesn't need to be fancy ..

My back is still sore after over a month. So frustrating. I probably should get back into the gym though, guess sitting around it wont fix itself. Probably should hit up a physio too...

It is interesting how Aussies view physio's. In Japan the physio (Aussie guys/girls) told me to tell any Japanese person that I was seeing a 'sports doctor', initially I thought they were just pissing in their own pocket but when I mentioned physio to my translated her reply was 'oh good, so you are getting massages as well'

Einen Frau thought I was raving mad for not seeing a 'real' doctor in Japan and just going straight to a physio.

Yet every Aussie with a history of sporting injuries and an ex ARL player thought it was completely normal to bypass the GP initially.

All the gp does is have a look and if they can't diagnose anything medically wrong they just send you to a physio, who's job is to find structural or muscular issues. I'm starting to feel like I may have a disc problem in my back so I probably should get an ultrasound first.

Funny enough my physio questioned me last time as to why I went to see my GP first before going straight to her.

(GP is a sports specialist anyway).

Yep, my only reason for seeing the gp in those cases is to get the Medicare referral.
