Dear friends,

Clearly, i did not fulfill promise of finishing my update in the previous post. I was lazy. Gracious, i'm still blogging. I just wiped out the old one 'cos ... it was time to do so. Therefore, i shall begin the update now, with what little adrenaline i have left.

After spending two nights at the Comfort Inn in Harrisburg, mom and i flew down south to meet a family friend in Tennessee. We spent all 4 days shopping at the outlets and lotsa visits to TJ-MAX. We even went to the Biltmore Estate in Ashville.

My only touristy venture thus far. It's pretty clear to me now that i don't appreciate western history as much as i used to. This venture also marks the only time i've snacked on American soil. I shared some waffles and ice-cream with mom.

Share sumore. Tengok la betapa takutnya aku. Takut jadi gemuk macam orang kat sini.

After Tennessee, we went back to Harrisburg and our international correspondence picked us up from the airport.

Introducing, CINDY!

That's my mom. In her rented car. I think i've increased my chances of getting a heart attack by a few years. They drive on the left here. And well, this KL driver who won't slow down when turning hit a curb before she learned her lesson.

To make things short since the blogging mood is dispersing, we shopped till we dropped for my stuff. Sheets, books, hangers, everything. We spent an entire day dedicated to getting everything and yet we missed quite a few =.= No one remembers you need to get your own clean-ex/tissue 'cos you're so used to having it with you everywhere back home. Geh.

That's my bed for now. I thought the sheets were cute. I have filled the drawers behind the bed but the cupboards at the back are still pretty spacious. So, can still buy MORE THINGS! ^^

I've met many people. No one i took pictures with. Haven't whipped out the camera for a while now, actually. Just proves i'm not photojournalist. I've met many people whose names i've probably forgotten.

To those who remember Anna Yong, CBN 2005, 5A, Christian Fellowship pianist...

I go to school with her brother now. Andy. The only other Malaysian on campus. We are a rare breed apparently. It's interesting to know that no one comprehends Malaysian English when we converse. Even if we don't throw in any slang or chinese/indian/malay/etc.

Orientation's been good to me so far. I hope it will only get better, or at least remain the same. I can only pray that i haven't overstepped any boundaries of social conduct yet. Sigh. It's so hard to go through orientation again =.=

I hear that there's another English proficiency test i have to take. Just like in ADP, Taylor's. I'm nervous. Sial.

So, i'm fine. For now. Call me on skype or msn if you want further updates. 'Cos... i'm far too tired to do anymore than this.

Heh, i realize that there aren't any recent pictures of me up anywhere XD. No worries, i'm still the same. Just imagine me wider. And uglier.

Day 1 : Harrisburg

So, things have started anew. Therefore, i've refreshed this blog to chronicle the next very different couple of years.

I've just arrived at the Comfort Inn (don't know which one) in Harrisburg, PA. I'm not gonna lie and say it was a very pleasant trip traveling with my mother. It was not.

(to be continued later - i'm dead tired to think of something remotely witty for even myself to read)

Note: Sini banyak orang gemuk la. It was a horrible sight. Geh. Not a single kurus person anywhere. The tv lies.
