Shopping

Today is my 3rd day in Dallas. My Indian colleague advised me that I should do some shopping like buying chips and drinks and bring them to office instead of buying them from the vending machine. She said Americans love to bring food to work so they save money that way. Otherwise, eating out is very expensive.

Wise words..

So I went Target to do my shopping and I bought a few stuff.. one of them is this miniature 6-pack Diet Coke shown here.

I am not sure if you believe me but the Diet Coke in USA taste much, much better than the Diet Coke (aka Coke Light) in Malaysia. Not sure why but it really taste better. However, I usually can't finished a can and this miniature Diet Coke just fits the bill. Behind the Diet Coke are Starbucks coffee. I bought two boxes - one box contain 4 bottles. The black label is Mocha Frappucino. The green one is Minty Mocha Frappucino Limited Edition. I bought a few boxes of Tamales for Mystic Grey.. bought a dozen miniature Pringles and Lays Potatoes chips. Bought a few boxes of microwave food.. All in all, I spent around US$40 on food, chips and drinks. I hope it is money well spent.

Anyway, the reason you see 7 bottles of Starbucks coffee is because as I was transporting the bags of stuff from the trunk to the hotel room, one bag slipped my fingers. Of all bags, it was the Starbucks coffee bag that fell and one of the bottles broke. Celaka.. didn't even get to drink already tumpah...

If ada chance, go to Atlanta - the Coke HQ - u get to try /taste coke from all countries. Same ingredients, the diff is water source. Last time, when i tried, I hate coke from China ...I also like USA coke the best

I plan to do that this weekend when there's sun. Everyday, I left the hotel at 7am and came back around 8pm. It's too dark to take nice pictures, so I am saving it for the weekend.

My opinion on iPhone X

I'm a huge fan of everything Apple. And yet, I don't have the latest Apple gear. I'm not that rich to buy every Apple gear there...
