Mar16 - Preparing the big move

To prepare myself for the big move, there are a few things that needed to be done.
Somethings you know that you have difficulty finding in a foreign country, and things that would prepare you for the coming months.
Get back my registration deposit from dance schools
I've been learning my pole class with Viva Vertical via Talent Hub. 
Clearing stuff? Try Cash Converter....though truthfully, they give quite crappy returns. 
See your favourite dentist, White Zone Dental at PJ State
Pulled out my other wisdom tooth (while I can still claim from my company).
Read review here
Clear your tax....let's see how did i do it
Since I was leaving in Mar, I got my 2011 EA form from HR. Declared my tax (got return =p).
After that I got estimate amount 2012 EA form from HR.
With the printed 2011 tax forms & the 2012 EA form, I went to the Taxation office.
You have to go to the office that has your records. Dunno where? Call them.
When u get there, just say u wanna do Tax Clearance. 
Dingdong dingdong, u'll be given 2 letters. One for HR to state can release my last month's pay, another to myself. That's it!!! 
Eat your favourite food...mine was Bak Kut Teh in Puchong.
This shop has Chinese Rice Wine/XO in the soup (upon request)....I simply lovvveee it 
My weekly routine to the night market aka pasar malam.
Sometimes I don't have anything to get. I just want the environment.
Imported colour contact lense is so competitive these days.
Got a pair for only RM10....w prescription too.
Saving it for one of those dinner occasions. 
Don't forget your medical checkup.
Yes, I'm an athlete but that doesn't mean I'm realllly healthy.
Especially when you are a Woman. 
There are special checkup for us such as pap smear & breast ultrasound. 
Changing your money to the right currency.
Been going to this money changer for sometime.
Don't forget to negotiate for a better price especially when changing huge amount. 
Aussie dollars is so high right now. My stack of Ringgit has just dropped to so few. 
Appreciate your love ones even if they are animals.
Handsome from KS's actually a female...oh well 
My baby Tara. I realllly reallly miss her much.
My family, I can easily talk to. Gotta try to video skype her.
Everyone asked me what's going to happen to her & why don't I bring over.
Well, she'll be keeping my family company plus I found out to bring animals over to Aus, they'll be quarantine for 6mths. 
Last but not least, the packing. 
Try to do as much as you can before you leave.
I wouldn't wan to burden my family. 
Packed & label everything accordingly.

That's wat I did in 2weeks....

Let's not forgot an important thing for frequent & "carry lots of stuff" traveller...a digital luggage scale
