Chattanooga Weekend

In a few more days, it'll be my 3rd month being here in the US. That means...7 months more to go before leaving...arghh...i hate to think about that!! :( I was talking to Uyanga few days ago and realised that we've already been here for almost 2 months!! Gosh...that's way toooo fast!! I've been enjoying every experiences here so far and met many awesome people, all these will definitely make me feel sad when I'm leavin'. Juz put these thoughts aside first, I'm gonna enjoy myself to the fullest for the next few months!! ;)

I've been sharing a lot about different activities & different places that I've been to through my blog and facebook. My friends back in Malaysia said that I seem to be paid this scholarship to come here to experience the American culture & have fun instead of studying. Hehe...i'm indeed having fun but make it clear...I do put in a lot of effort in my studies too! Juz that I didn't mention much about it coz might bore ya'll...haha!! :p

So I'll juz briefly recap about my progress in studies so far. Advanced Financial Accounting...scored 90 for my first test and juz had my 2nd test laz Thurs. Investments...scored 98 for my first test and ranked 3rd in the StockTrak game now...not bad huh!! Biz an A for my individual project (very happy coz the teacher told the class that even though i'm not from here...I did very well...coz i think only bout 5 ppl got A in our class). Japanese...scored at least 90 for quizzes & homework and juz had first test laz Wed. So...proved that itz not juz all play & no work yo!!

28 Sept 2008 (Sun): Chattanooga Trip
The international office brought us all for a trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee last Sunday. It was the first time for all sponsored students to go on a trip together. We went to the Lookout Mountain and the Tennessee Aquarium. Overall, it was a pleasant trip and we enjoyed ourselves seeing the nice scenery at Lookout Mountain & visiting the aquarium. We were all busy snapping pictures & killing our cameras. I took quite a lot of pictures too so had to combine all of them together...juz click on the photos to see clearer ya! Hope that we'll have more chance to travel around together! :)
2 hours journey from UAH to Chattanooga...picturesque view along the way.

Yeah...finally i'm appearing in more pictures...woohoo!!

Picturesque view of 7 states from the Lookout Mountain

26 Sept (Fri) - Hang out with Rachel & Friends

Rachel & I have been talking about meeting each other even before we came over since we're the nearest from each other. Finally, Rachel managed to come to Huntsville with her friends. It was nice seeing someone familiar so far away from home! We went to Bridge Street and itz nice to go to this special place again, I really like the place! We then went to Coleen's house for dinner and hang out with her friends for the rest of the night. It was nice meeting Rachel and her friends from UNA! ;)
