Is there anything missing? Well there is, a big part of my heart, left behind in Bangladesh. Yes, I’m in Canada
now! Miss everything that I had back home.
I was supposed to fly on Friday but due to some problem with Air India we had to cancel their ticket and buy a new for Cathy Pacific. Flight was scheduled for Thursday night. We (my father and I) managed to buy new tickets, get new endorsements in a day. We still had a lot of packing up remaining. That we started on Thursday morning. I was really happy when Tithi (my fiancé) came with her mother and sister to visit us. They stayed for a long time and Tithi stayed with me until I reached Air Port.
Well it was a very long route to Canada and must say was not a good one. It was very bad and hopeless service at Cathy Pacific. I traveled with Singapore, Thai, Malaysian, British airways before but never had this kind of bad service. Anyway when I first saw my brother after 7 years it was a good feeling. I really missed him a lot. When we left Air Port premises and entered the city, it felt like I was back to Australia. Everything was alike Melbourne. The weather is cold here. But not for my brother but for us it is.
BTW, I’m using my new laptop. Dell Inpiron I6400. My brother bought it for me before I came here. Its an awesome laptop. Here is a small configuration detail:
Intel Centrino Duo T2400 1.83GHz
Windows Home Edition SP2 (Windows Vista capable)
15.4 Inch Wide Screen
1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz, 2 Dimm
80GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive
8X CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with double-layer4 DVD+R
128MB ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1300 HyperMemory™
Dell Wireless 1390 802.11b/g Mini Card (54Mbps)
…any few other stuffs….
And what can I say about internet connection! Back home I used to be happy when
at some point I got 4/5 KBps speed. It was a dream comes true. I remember when
I first downloaded Yahoo Messenger 8 at a speed of 2/3KBps it took me around
3/4 hours (probably more). Here I downloaded it in less than a minute! I’ve
just checked the speed and it gives me download speed of 192KBps and upload of
around 55KBps. Great isn’t it? I’m using wireless connection. Life is lot
easier here if you have a good job and good money. I hope to get a good job
soon. I’m just getting ready to apply for jobs.
Anyway besides all the good things I’m blessed with here in Canada,
I still miss my time in Bangladesh.
I know my country has a lot of problems, but the root belongs there. I will
hopefully go back to Bangladesh
