tickets to USA paid!!

posted by frances_sha @ 11:49 PM  
went down to pricebreaker to make the payment last night...

well.. surprisingly tickets are selling out fast!! initially wanted to change the return flight passing by Hawaii, but the flight is full! wth... this is like 5 months....

anyway hahaha there were no other choice, so in the end we still took United Airlines..

going off on 12 June (Tues) and coming back on 15 Aug (wed, i think)

hahah since gg to my Gu GU's house, so we reach New Jersey first. therefore in the end we increase the number of transit we have again.......... lol now is 6 flights instead of 5.. hahahhaha
1) SIN>Tokyo
2) Tokyo> Washington
3) washington > Newark (GuGu house!!)
4) Newark > LA
5) LA> Tokyo
6) Tokyo> SIN
really never seen such a long long booking list...... everytime we see is a short slip of paper only.....

we will be spending 24 hrs flying here and there.. ok lah not alot of difference with the direct flight since the direct will take about 20 hrs.. hmm wait, 4 out of 20 is like one fifth right? ok.. 20% more lor.. quite ok right? lol

yeah.. so our plans is to stay in NJ for 10 days.. then go LA on 22 June.

places we hope to go during this trip includes:
1) NY (hersey's choc factory & Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory!!!)
2) Niagara Falls
3) Toronto
4) washinton
5) LA disneyland / Hollywood etc..
6) Las Vegas
7) San Francisco
8) Grand Canyon
9) Yoshimite National Park
10) Hawaii!!

hmm.. so we are not going to Tokyo for stopover now.. so sad!! anyway we are out of budget.. yeah.. so might as well.. hahhahah

haiz die.. totally out of budget. the accomodation at LA is freaking exp. the lowest it cost is USD$750 per bed per month! and that apartment lives 6 person.. imagine how much rental that apartment can bring man... then the school hostel one is even more expensive! the cheapest also cost $1300 for 6 weeks, which in the end cost about 1k for one month..

tickets to USA booked!!

posted by frances_sha @ 8:04 AM  
had my MIS quiz yesterday. haiz goneeeee........ 30 marks, 15 marks gone. and its 30% of my final grade. luckily i got 49 out of 50 for my in-class assignments which contributes 50%.. lol...

anyway yesterday after the quiz ended at 2.30pm i met my 3 other USA buddies to go to NATAS travel fair at suntec in hope of finding a cheap air tic to USA. at first i thot it will be impossible for us to get a good deal there since the NATAS fair focuses more on package travel. the air tic to USA are advertising on newspapers at cutting throat prices, but are all 1 mth ticket..

my other 3 buddies went at 10am in the morning! since i have a quiz from 12.30 to 2.30, so i can only join them after that. when i got there i was delighted that they've got a good deal!

had been trying to book online but online booking doesnt allow much flexibility..

yeah.. we had an offer, UA flight with the following destination
1) sin>narita(tokyo)
2) narita > new york (stopover for 6 days)
3) new york > LA
4) LA > narita
5) narita > SIN

total of 5 flights!! first time had such a long booking slip!!!!

its from pricebreaker.com, i think they've got the greatest prices so far.

however......... lingxin's father actually opposed to her taking an American Airlines. but luckily pricebreaker people is nice enuff to help us look for an alternative, maybe cathay or wat.. and would get back to us.

yup.. fingers crossed..............

anyway, went to Aries 21st birthday last saturday. it was held at Frujch!! so cool lor.. bao the whole frujch for her bd...

pictures with bd gal and her cake. anyway it was very sad... cos i din manage to stay till cake cutting... initially had a quarrel with my mum about this coming to aries bd thingy. cos my dad was away on business trip, so left my mum alone. but i had promised aries to go for her 21st bd long long long ago... but...... in the end i still stay at home to have dinner with her before i left for Aries bd party.. and that night, my dad's coming back at 9.30pm.. yar and it was so irritating when mummy called when i just left the carpark saying that the flight had delayed for 30 min. caused me to travel at 50km/hr on the ECP cos i dun want tor each the airport so early, then has to park and all.. so sad cannot eat the cake.. looks so nice and cute and delicious!

first UCLA meeting!

posted by frances_sha @ 6:05 PM  
yeah.. btw according to NTU, i've successfully enrolled in UCLA summer course. so last sat i made my trip down to NTU to meet up with my other 3 fellow summer course mates who will be going along with me.. so one of them is lingxin and the other 2 are guys, Allan and Frederick. I hope we will xiang an wu shi throughout the 2 months eh....

haiz ntu wireless really sucks.. we had our meeting at lingxin hall, which is hall one, at the TV room. i din manage to go online at all.. although they say i shud be able to, and yar last time i did tried connecting to ntu network before and it works actually but was at the north canteen the other time lah.

so with little resources, we planned our departing and return date.

we plan to depart on 10 June and coming back on 10 Aug. 2 whole months!! *yeah meaning i am celebrating my birthday there!!!* anyway we also plan to transit at Tokyo while on our way to LA, and transit at Hawaii when coming back. our lesson starts 25th June so while we are there early, we will probably use one day to settle down our stuffs at our apartment in LA, then maybe fly over to NY for a short tour before coming back to start our lessons. muahahha everything sounds so exciting lor. i totally have no mood for assignments, projects, mic etc.......

yar according to lingxin's senior, he say we have to plan everything down, like which day go where and there for how long etc, and now plan only when we reach there..our routes and everything, from tokyo all the way to hawaii... hahahha but in the end we spent 4 hours and we are still planning for tokyo!! its so tiring lor.... so i guess we gotta meet for many many times before we get everything settled down.. yeah.. so if u been to tokyo or USA, kindly supply me with what ever info you have k!! cos we are bit lost on where to go, how to go etc...

well on a separate note... hahhahaa i drove a manual car to NTU!! it's a small van.. the renault kangoo... yar its so small so cute.. just that manual car is so troublesome. i was so scare when i was driving lah. and in the end i still stall. haiz at lingxin hall. its a slope and there's this metal hump.. yar i was slowing down and i forgot the clutch. yucks. and the car died. lol

yeah... hopefully it will be my consistent weekend car (cos weekday my father's staff gotta use it to deliver goods), then i can go anywhere i want!!!
