We caught the game live.....26 June 2004....... but left half way through cos i think most of us were asleep.

So, starting with yesterday mornig, we went to a flea market in Grand Prairie where i got some cool t-shirts and accessories! it was fantastic...not everything was texas/usa but they were really nice. So, that was a couple of hours, of which 60 mins of it was raining, we went for the game. Parked somewhere not too near the stadium where it cost us 10 bucks! I was told the stadium was called ameriquest.....took some pics.

we were definitely trying to get the whole experience like buying hot dogs (which i couldn't cos they were beef - so i got nachos instead) and a giant giant soda.....the only thing i realised was that there is no sales tax at the stadium. plus we got free texas ranger hats.....who wants? Kinda like my already existing fisherman's hat! It lokos cool, i may give it to my sister.

We also bought candy floss which cost 2.75!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read that right! It was shared around but we couldn't really finish it in the end also.....bleah...all sticky and gooey! So we left three-quarter way through the game (don't know why so many people think it's a great date place!) and got home all tired and sleepy.

Last night I watched Jerry Springer and it was stupendous as usual! 'Pregnant women get back at their cheating men'. followed by 'Eye for an Eye' which is even more mind boggling than Springer. The people who feel like they need to invent situations to get their 15 minutes of fame.......

Tthis Sunday, woke up for breakfast and decided to go to Grapevine Mills (yes, the outlet mall - where there's like factory outlets - as from a previous excursion). We had to get a cab over which cost 20 bucks for 5 of us and shopped from 11am until 5pm! I think I spent way too much money getting gifts for everyone......They also had a store with a closing down leather sale. saw a beautiful tan leather jacket for 49.99. It fit me very well but I don't know where to wear it to.....

Also tried on cowboy boots!!!!!!!!! Wanna buy a kids one....50bucks. Oklah since the adults ones cost 100 overs.......

Ok, got a test tomorrow at 'school' so gotta study tonight.

It's the end of the weekend and tomorrow will be a workday from the shuttle to office at 7.30am until the shuttle scheduled back to the hotel at 5.15pm. Sounds like a real long day doesn't it? Hope all goes well, especially since my name will be on all the reports!

So, I have already bought a cool cool pinstripe suit cos we went shopping at Grapevine Mall today. It has all the outlet stores that sell brand names cheaper. Saw some other cool stuff, like attitude t-shirts, but I think I will save them for when I am sure I have money left. Cos the western stuff has all NOT been bought yet and time is so short with so much to do. I don't know if we have covered all of Lewisville but there are a whole lot of fun family chain restaurants here that we have definitely not tried yet. I really wanna check out Jack In A Box cos I've never had that! Same goes for Taco Bell.

Also went grocery shopping today at Target and I tried on lots of XL sizes......from the Children's Department. COOL! Really saves my dollars although I must say the best thing that has caught my eye thus far are the attitude t-shirts. They have smart ass phrases on them and I saw 'Princess' with a cat, D!!!!

So, everybody's getting along very well and we're gonna cook a Malaysian dinner for everybody from office....well, the two that we have lots of contact with anyway! AND, we met this really nice man, Douglas, who's a trainer too, on loan here in Texas from Michigan!

He was so kind - found out where the mall was, drove us there in his car, spent a couple of hours walking about with an ice-cream so we could shop. And!!!! he's even found out about a rance where we can go ride horses and meet cowboys and do Texas-exy stuff! Hahahahhaa.....he's wanting to introduce his 6'4" blond haired son to us who can show us how to twirl a gun from the holster (I'm sure it's meant to be draw and something but twirl sounds like it describes the motion pretty well). We've also got Six Flags in mind and definitely Western shopping!

Breakfast has been pretty good but I seem to get hungry again in the middle of the afternoon even though I ate a pretty heavy breakfast - today. And in the afternoon about 5-7pm, I think everyone naps. You just can't help it!

Well, hope all goes well tomorrow and I love that this hotel has free internet which seems so far, touch wood, to be readily available whenever I want it. Should try to get Yahoo messenger loaded on here so I can chat!

Ok, I am now in lewisville, texas! It's looking alright as of now. Lot's of flat land and my suite is fantastic! Homewood Suites people. If only I had an apartment like this back home. I shall take a video and save it somewhere for you guys to view.

So, just had our first breakfast here and I am feeling so thirsty already. Yesterday's high temperature was 95 degrees Farenheit. It's HOTTER than Malaysia, can you believe it.

Shopping is next on the agenda and souvenir shopping. Had a little fiasco at the airport - involving pepper spray(!), don't know if it's legal to talk about it! But it's really susah to get in here lah! The flight was too long - been travelling since 7am 18 June and arrived here at the hotel at 2am 20 June. Way too long and people who are coming in, make sure your transit hours are good and long enough if you're catching a connecting flight!

Anyway, enough for now. Will update later. Brain too fried to think.
