First greeting from US
Hi Hi~~~ everybody. Finally I can blog from my room freely with high-speed internet in my own apartment. Woo hoo!!
I am in US now. ^_^
Yeah, after 24h (not including waiting time for transit), I reached my new destination safely last night.
Nearly couldn't catch the flight at Narita as when one old guy was feeling very sick, the flight have to go back to let the man and his luggages off from the flight. Had a nice talk with a lady from Colorado that sat beside me during the flight. She told me quite a few useful information. Thanks!
Well, I took United Airlines this time, as it was the cheapest during this peak season. Well, the experience was ok. Not as horrible as the one I had with North West Airlines. Food better, service not too good and the seat was more comfortable. Too bad, it was a full flight.
My boss fetched me up at the airport with his wife. Beautiful and very nice wife. Lucky him. Ok, my boss is a handsome guy too. Man, I look so short in between them. :P I know I am going to be lucky work under him. ^_^
Then, my apartment. That was a great surprise for me. Instead of giving me the studio type room that the officer said earlier, they gave me a 1-room apartment. One thing unique about this 1-room apartment is the size, it is even bigger than normal 2-room apartment in this dormitory village. It is the size of 2 studio!!! Geee... too big, now I need to feel headache on keeping it nice and clean. I will (promise to myself). Many cupboard, rack and cabinet for me to keep my things. I really like. Ok, it was quite old, but it is nice. I am only paying US$30 more if compare to a normal studio. Heeee...
Well, my busy day started this morning. After a canned wild rice soup for breakfast, my colleague brought me to open a bank account before we went to lunch at Bojangle's. The lady that helped me with the setting up of the account had a nice talk with us. She just got her US citizen last week. She was in US since 10 years ago. She and her husband only applied for it this May, and they were accepted in 4-month time. Bojangle's chicken was good. I'll put the pictures of the food in my next post. Today tired, no energy to edit.
Did a lot of shopping today at Food Lion and K-Mart and a shop selling all kinds of Japanese food. Still a lot of things to buy. I am going to my workplace for signing contract etc tomorrow.
Oh yeah, my diet programme is coming really soon. I need to get that US$100. Hmm!!
To do a relaxing start, I am cooking brown rice risotto with skinless thigh meat and a lot of veggies. How do that sound? :P
Man~~~ 1 lb of skinless breast meat = US$4.99 and 1 lb of skinless thigh meat = US$2.99. If you were me, which one would you buy?
