Longest Record....

It is the 1st time for me to leave at a hotel for such a long time...it has been 2 weeks and 3 days...which is also the days since i arrived at houston...I was always thinking that staying at a hotel was fun...but I was wrong....it is dam frustrated...it really is getting on my nerves....I hate it when I am sleeping and someone comes in...or whenever there is room service...I hate it when I need to wait for the room servive to come and do their work...it gives me a little of space to do my own things....there isn't even a proper table for me to study the materials for the stupid test....I look forward to the day we move into our own house....peace will come to me soon...I hope...

The journey to my dad/mum friends.....

Today afternoon we were invited over to my dad or mum friends which is at the same time my sis friends back in the days at Norway....so I know them also...hahaha....after 8~9 years we finally meet again....We had quite a hard time reaching their house as we didn't know the way....we had to use the GPRS to take us they....it was just bought today.....luckily it was very helpful and we didn't lost our way during the journey....it was quite a long drive as their house was on the west side of Woodlands....we were on the east side of Woodlands......



When i reach their house, I was like oh my gosh.....it was so big and beautiful....it also had a swimming pool in it....hahaha....I also want 1 ......( dun hav the pictures of the pool as the door was lock )....>.<....
This was the inside of it which consist of the staircase, kitchen and dinning table....it is only a part of it...




This was my sis friends personal car...nice isn't it....she was just 17 years old...haha.....the driving liscence in USA is 15 years old will be able to obtain their driving liscence....haha...so shuang de.....



After leaving her house, we went to the Market Mall and saw this Pink Limo....haha quite colourful.....I think it is for the kids from the shop....


Today we had our dinner at The Cheesecake Factory...the scene was very nice and comforting....they are selling many types of cheesecake....woh it was large....I had my tummy stuff tightly...if continue like this, I will surely be fat in not time...when we eat, there were 4 families celebrating birthdays and the people working there sang birthday songs for them which was very nice...they made the song into acapella.....nice man....thunbs up <3......


This P.F.Chang was 1 of the chinese restaurant there....I think we had our 2 dinner at there upon reaching houston....the food was very nice...but quite salty as well...haha.....the horse nice?


This the night view of the place where the shopping mall and the restaurants are located....beautiful....can u see the beatifull moon and all the lights...there are just so nice....

This is the main mall in Woodlands which is also called 'The Woodlands Mall'...this is the front view of it....



This are the 2 laptops bought from Malaysia and from USA...the smaller one is from Malaysia which cost around RM 2k+++ which has a ram of 1.75gb and dun noe how memory....it is a window xp.....The larger one is bought from USA.....my dad friend help us to buy...it cost around 700$ ++....it is 4gb ram and 300 gb memory in it without any additional hard disk....it is window vista which I cant really get use to it as I had use window xp for so long....nid to adapt to it somehow......it is really fast and fascinating....combine with the ultimate internet speed which is wireless from the hotel which is 11mb/s whereas my home only gives out 1 mb/s which is way slower.......which is I guess very fast....good for normal usage, playing games and online...hahaha....


Well the black one is the smaller one...haha...and the larger one is of course now my personal lappy...muahahahaha....nice...easy for assignment and other things....

Finally got the pictures...hahaha....

This is the front view of my hotel ( resident inn )....

and the condition in it hahahaha.....

This is the rented car that I talk about in it earlier...
well it is a very nice and comfortable car....
haha....
much nicer than my nissan at my home.....



My dad standing beside the car...
it was after our meal at chilli's......
I think there is also 1 chilli's in KLCC if I am not mistaken....
the food serving is also very large...
but i manage to finish my meal....
the foods in houston are all either salty or sweet.....
if anyone is not use to it...
u will definitely have a problem with the food...
for me is quite ok.....
used to it already way back at home....



This is 1 of the small malls that is around my hotel....
it is quite big but still consider small when comparing with the main shopping mall.....
'Best Buy' sells many elertricity components...
like TV's, Blackberry phone, Apple laptop, GPRS, and many more....




This is a regular car park for the malls...
isn't it nice....the trees haha......




As I have said, there are many BEAUTIFUL cars in houston, texas.....
I guess all around USA u can also see cars like this one....
it is 1 of the nicest car that I have seen so far....
it is a Porche Carrera....nice man.....
I wan to have 1 of it...T_T~~~~.....
haha...dun noe nid to wait how long for it.....=(.....

The super big difference between my hometown and houston, texas.....

I just found out recently that there is a lot of difference between my hometown and where I am now....my sickness now left with sore throat and flu....yippee.....dun hav headache and other stupid stuffs anymore...wakaka.....my father just rented a car today....it was very nice and comfortable...the picture I will put it later on bah.....now haven got a picture of the car.....hehe.....

The food serving in USA is already normally larger than my hometown......but in Texas is even larger than American size.....i ordered a regular ( medium size ) bread and it stuffs me up very much....the proportion was so large that it felt very scary....my sister ordered a small serving and nearly cant finish it.....OMG.....1 more thing is that the drinks...we didnt say nid what size and she gave us 4 big cups to get ourselves the drinks....I think many know about the size of a large big gulp from 7-11...wel the drinks here are much larger....even my dad and I are unable to finish it.....next time whenever we go out and eat....we must be specific on the food serving size....

The weather here for spring is very nice....windy and warm....sometimes a bit cold....during spring the weather range is from 10~20 degrees celcius.....so it is very comforting to walk around....^-^......not like my hometown eveyrday sunny and hot other wise rainy all day long....so boring....

They isn't much people who are walking in Houston especially in Texas....u might be in the hospital next moment.,...according to my memory....the avg speed of each car is around 60~80 kilometres per hour.....if I am not mistaken...but the avg speed in Texas way faster.....80 miles per hour....is MILES and not KILOMETRE.....OMG...can u even imagine that how fast is the speed...u can get knockdown any minute if u try walking around....the roads in houston are amazingly beautifulllllllllllllll.....many straight and long roads....that is 1 of the main reason why the speed is so fast....the trees and flowers nearby makes the whole place more beautifull....the place that I am staying is Woodland......my dad always call it as ' Land of Wood'...u can roughly imagine how it is.....u go anyway will be surely see many trees and flowers....which makes it very nice.....not like my hometown go anywhere the place also 'botak'....hahaha......the pictures I will need a longer time to upload....haha.....not now of course....

There is 1 more thing that fascinates me a lot...the car here are all quite new and nice.....i mean good looking....not like my hometown...all "Protons and Kancils'......only a little bit of sportscar and nice car....even new cars are also limited....as for here....going anywhere can also see new cars and sport cars....randomly can see them...there is no nid for me to purposely go search for it...hahaha.....nice indeed....I was still thinking if I can drive 1 of those then it would be perfect....the draving liscence in USA is way harder than to get than my hometown....the qualification is more tough and more things are required...sad.....

Have to stop here....when i got chance i will keep updating my blog....haha....
