Working Holiday in Australia

This is the list of all blogs I posted while working holiday in Australia. Some are interesting; some are boring. Some are just status update and whinning; some are full of photos. They are in chronical order of the things happened and so is not necessarily in the order of posting time.

no star: no bother, skip it.
one star: a bit interesting.
two stars: worthy of reading.
three stars: Very good, full of memories.

From Taiwan to Australia: In this period(Sydney and Melbourne), nothing special happened. I was just a normal tourist.
