A Special Visitor

Well, most of you know that I had a special visitor last time I was in Darwin and he was the reason I failed to update my blog during that time. Yes, Kasun FINALLY came to Darwin, after much begging/sulking from myself.

We both had a lot of fun and it really was great to see him again after 4 months. Time didn't drag or go too fast, so we managed to do quite a few things. I will list what we did because it's easier for me.

What Kasun and I did when he was in Darwin:

  • I arrived back home from the airport after work, and had a quick dinner with my parents and did some last minute cleaning. I then went to bed and decided to wake up at 12.15am as his flight was due at 12.50am.
  • When I was backing out of my driveway at 12.30am my phone starts ringing and indeed it was Kasun asking me where I was. I expressed shock at him arriving so quickly and told him I'd be there in 5 mins.
  • Kasun knew which car was mine in the airport carpark which impressed me. We then went home.
  • On Thursday we mainly watched TV and Kasun had about 3 showers before 12 noon. I then took him to Casuarina Shopping Centre and watched as he marvelled over the fact that, yes, we have a pretty cool Shopping Centre!!!
  • On Friday we watched Sri Lanka kick Australia's ass in the cricket.
  • During the break we went for a walk on the beach - we also had a running race which I will speak no more about.
  • We then went to Alayne's birthday party.
  • Kasun got to meet my Darwin buddies and see how nice/strange they are.
  • We went to town for a bit and then went home.
  • On Saturday we went to Crocodylus Park with my parents and saw some of Darwin's wildlife. I also took this opportunity to threaten Kasun about being pushed into the croc pens if he annoyed me.
  • That night we all went to the wharf and had fish and chips.
  • The next day Kasun and I went to the Rapid Creek Market with my Mum and bought greasy spring rolls and chicken satays for breakfast.
  • We then watched Sri Lanka lose to Australia and went to Amy's and Adam's and watched a DVD. Kasun was attacked by her cat Blitz (which was funny).
  • On Monday I took Kasun to Holly's and watched him play with Jasper (which was really cute).
  • We then went to town and had lunch with my parents and Sashani.
  • After that we met Mira for coffee at the Deck bar.
  • Then we went to the museum and had a look around.
  • That night we went to the Casino with my parents for dinner and then we had a go on the pokies. I won $20.00!!!!!!
  • On Tuesday we went to Casuarina and did some last minute shopping. Kasun bought me a rose!!! Aww, how sweet!!!
  • We then went home and watched as Australia posted a record total.
  • That night we went to the 'Hanuman' restaraunt for dinner. We decided to order a glass each of champagne. However, we were presented with a bottle, which we still finished off. The food was great, but I felt a bit sick after eating so much butter chicken. It was VERY romantic though and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
  • We then went for a walk along the Esplanade (where I used to eat my lunch when I worked for DEET). That was nice. We both felt a bit sad there because Kasun was going back to Sydney that night and I was going back to McArthur River the next morning.

So, that's it in a nutshell. I was so tired on my first day back at work as I had been to the airport at 1am in the morning and then again at 4.45am for my flight, but it was honestly worth it.

Thanks for coming Kasun!!!!!
