I had a tough weekend this week, it's the end of the taxation year (taxation term) in oz and we australian residents, citizens, migrants, wogs, swags, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, yabbies, cockatoos, mates, etc. knew what that means....! It means that we have to go to our tax agents of choice or in front of our computers to pay our taxes before the deadline ends and so i did....
Actually i already went there yesterday but the secretary told me that they were fully booked for that day and she adviced me to come back early in the morning today....
I was expecting that when i arrived early today, i would be like number 5 or maybe 9 in the queue but to my surprise i was in number 63....! It's because the already booked applicants who were scheduled the day before had left and didn't turned up when their numbers was called and instead had returned the next day which is today together with the rest of us new ano ba yan....!
So there i was, set the alarm to 6:30 AM last night.... I woked up in the morning, jumped in the shower, dressed up, even forgot to bring my jacket with me luckily it wasn't cold at all, a bit warm on tops of 21 degrees then i head straight on a two suburbs away journey to the taxation office....
I got there around 9:00 AM and i thought that i was the very first one there coz there's no one queuing at all in front of the door but i was wrong....! Enter the dragon....! Dyaraan....! Full compact, standing room only walang maupuan patay....! But not for long, someone left his seat and it didn't even took me half a blink to steal the throne away, hay salamat at nakaupo rin si ako....!
But all did not end there because i've waited for more than five hours long without breakfast and lunch, scared to leave my seat to have a munch kasi baka tawagin na number ko at wala ako dun....!
I was so bored waiting that i've amazingly finished reading approximately 8 issues of News Week, 5 Time Magazines, 10 New Inventions, 3 Womens Magazines, 3 New Ideas, and 5 Juicy Fruit Gum wrappers ha-ha....!
If only i didn't really need the tax return badly, i won't have to wait that long and probably i would just come back at the very last minute of filing so i will not go through that same trouble again.... I need the money to pay something that AB and i bought in pinas as an investment, and the due date will fall at the end of this month of august na....! Takot ako he-he....!
I haven't saved anything this year....! I've spent every single penny in my wallet on a lot of things, but then i believe that problems and solutions always walk side by side with each other so here it is, solution came just when things are about to happen....! Lucky, lucky....!
All done....! Anyways, at the end of the day i'm happy because i got back a crispy $AU 1,600 dollars....! Mmmmm....money ha-ha....! A very nice consolation prize for my efforts....! Not bad at all for a day's work he-he....! Now, what i really wanted to do is to stretch on my bed and have a nice deep sleep because tomorrow is monday again and i have to start the kayod na naman....! Hope you had a good weekend everyone....! Goodnight....!
