USA Work & Travel Week 2 (24th May 2010 – 30th May 2010)


Notice: Dear reader, please note that most of the photos in my blog are currently not available.  They are currently held hostage by Photobucket (which requires me to pay $399USD/year). I am in the process of re-uploading the images on a different host and this will take some time. If you have any burning questions about my post, feel free to leave a comment. Sorry for the inconveniences caused!

For this week, I was only scheduled to work on the weekends (Fri-Sun). What a waste, seriously, but obviously I won’t let the other 4 days go to waste!

24th May 2010, Monday

after very last mintue decision, we decided to catch the bus and fly to jersey shore premium outlet. gosh, it was a total of $8.80 for both ways using public transport. had to go asbury park or something to change bus. I guess, with iphone, with google maps, i can’t get lost 😀 No where is too difficult for me!

but it doesn’t look that fantastic anymore because I kept on wearing it when I was in US.
there was a very pretty sunset on the way back. This was taken when I was on the bus. argh, another regret. not being able to view a full sunset while i was there =/

nothing interesting. it was just stoning. cooking, oh, forgot to mention that we barely had an internet connection throughout this whole period. i think it was more of watching movies on my computer then.

this was the morning i woke up so so so so so so early. just for, someone who i never knew existed because i never watched american idol. i just decided to go, because he was famous. oh wells. ha.

also, i won my domo that day too.
had to work in the evening. it was a busy busy weekend the memorial day weekend. don’t ask me what memorial day is. i asked the locals they didn’t give me an answer. it was just, another holiday.

29th May 2010, Saturday

i was starting my addiction to the arcade. needed to get enough tickets to exchange for my carousel.
can’t find a clearer photo of it then. i tried to google to see if i could buy it but i guess i couldn’t. i shouldn’t reveal how much money i splurged on arcade in exchange for this. but it was video poker all the time, and deal or no deal. the super stressful games. by the way, i needed 18,000 tickets. so, just imagine.

we had chicken wings and rice for lunch. i didn’t prepare it though. i remember i was preparing it halfway then late for work. how smart of them to take my camera and take photos of the final product. ha. there’s a reason why i have the most number of photos. zomg.

30th May 2010, Sunday

had to work full shifts on both Saturday and Sunday. Oh, and on 30th May 2010 at around 8pm (US time) i sneaked to the toilet to check my results which were released on the 31st in Sg. signed up for push sms. never knew it was that early. oh well. i refused to put my handphone in the locker. it was in my pocket all the time, despite the rules. i guess they knew but they never scold. i’m an alien after all. we are all know as aliens with legal working documents. oh wells.
it was a busy night as 31st was a public holiday(memorial day) i can’t remember if there were fire works. hmm.

well, on good days, we get some free food somehow.
this is damn damn damn nice :D and it is free! strawberry ice cream waffle with soft serve vanilla ice cream! photo 29045_444959811208_1379982_n.jpg
peanut butter waffle sandwich! the waffle is burnt. ahaha, but it is free photo 29045_444959821208_4454628_n.jpg
this was the corn fried rice we prepared for lunch. with 3 slices of pork because we had to ration the meat.
corn fried rice with 3 pieces of pork. meat-rationing. ahaha. photo 29045_444959831208_5847576_n.jpg
this was part of my job scope. making chocolate dipped strawberries and charging them at exorbitant prices.
