3 Weeks!!!

It has been 3 weeks since I arrived and I feel like I've been 'imprisoned' in the campus...gosh...I can't believe that I haven't even been to downtown Huntsville yet!!! We had a long weekend last week because of the Labor Day holiday and at least I've finally got out of the campus...woohoo!!:)

31 Aug 2008 (Sunday):
Uyanga's birthday was supposed to fall on 30 Aug, same day as my eldest brother (Happy 25th Birthday to 大哥!!). Dragan & Aleksandar called us to go over to their room to give a surprise party to Uyanga...almost all sponsored students were there to celebrated her 20th birthday. I was the first one to celebrate my birthday over here 2 weeks ago but I didn't have a party like this...too bad...hehe!!

Happy 20th Birthday to Uyanga!!

30 Aug 2008 (Saturday):
I followed Anna & Daniel to their grandpa's lakehouse at Smith Lake and it was indeed a nice trip! We don't have lakehouses in Malaysia so it was something new for me...the scenery was nice and the surrounding was tranquil and relaxing! I had a great time meeting their family, eating delicious food, swimming in the lake and enjoying every bit of the scenery over there!! Their grandpa wanted to bring us around the lake in his boat but too bad the engine wasn't working...maybe next time...haha!! I'm glad that Anna & Daniel invited me to tag along...hehe!! I came back and realised that I didn't take many photos....aargh!!
On the way to the lakehouse...about 1.5 hours journey

Nice scenery!!


Didn't managed to go for a boat ride...took photos instead lo!!

Enjoyin' the sun in the lake

29 Aug 2008 (Friday):

Fiona suggested to go to the Asian market to have a look so we followed Michael's car to a Japanese/Korean shop nearby. They were selling all sorts of things from Japan & Korea but since I don't need to cook, I didn't buy anything...haha!

Along the streets in University Drive


Asian market where they sold all Japanese & Korean stuffs...


We went to Books-A-Million too!

Usually, Friday night over here means party night. But we didn't go anywhere...instead...we had a small 'party' in our suite. Anna's brother, Daniel came over from Birmingham and spent the night here. Uyanga, Sabina, Emil and Drew also came to our suite and it was kinda fun havin' more guests in the house...haha!! :)

Daniel....'leng chai' bo??

Finally, I've got photos of 2 of my lovely roomies!! Anna & Cristina!! Another roomie, Danielle went home during the weekends...so didn't join us.

The books that I bought for the Fall semester...super expensive!!

Chatting with mum & dad.....and my snacks...haha!!

More photos of our campus....nice or not??

There's a lake too!!
