Hasimah and I went to the library in the morning to print articles for Academic Writing and also Methods of Inquiry. It was really nice and comfortable to be there..how nice if we could spend the rest of the program here. We'll get a lots of experiences and our study would be much easier. On the way back, we've an opportunity to meet graduates attended their convocation. Then, we attended our Academic Writing lecture in the afternoon (2 - 5 pm.). Prof. Pritchard was very nice, and she took her time to discuss personally with each of us about our writing mistakes in our previous homework/articles. Personally, I've learned a lot from this class..and another assignment coming in..to be submitted next class and also a threaded discussion to be done before Sunday 12 pm...huh..huh..
There's no lecture today. We went to the Publix to buy some groceries. It's much easier now, especially when we knew how to get things done on our own. We really enjoyed the trip and our life getting better here!.
8.00 am. - we went to the Swap Market by town bus. We just need to pay USD3 and we would be able to use the bus service for a day. It was such a long journey because we have to wait for certain buses.. We had an opportunity to see the various housing areas, and most of it occupied by the Black. So many things at the Swap Market..vegetables, fruits, shirts, bags, anything..name it. It was like Petaling Street..too many immigrants and cheap things..but we're a bit sceptical about the quality. Anyway..it was really good to have an opportunity to meet various types of people and to have our first seafood meal (lunch) at the Mexican stall. Wow..the big plate of fried seafood, big fried snapper and rice with green chilli (if belacan is available, it'll taste like sambal belacan!). At the end of the day..everyone exhausted!
8.30 am. - We went to Miami Beach, accompanied by Ronald, CJ and Colleen. We really enjoyed the trip although it was raining at the beach. We spent about 2 hours there before leaving to Sawgrass Mills, the second largest shopping mall in Florida. It was really good to be there and the four hours time given passed by without notice. We just spent our time mostly at the Marshall because we're told by CJ that the price there cheaper than other places. We reached our room at about 5.30 pm. Such a wonderful trip!.
