I'm back (for now)!!
A lot of things happened since my last post. One major thing that happened - we moved to NY!
Hello New York! Now I understand why people love this city. It's always so alive and it really is the city that never sleeps!
On our first month here in NY, we stayed in an apartment in Manhattan, and boy do I love it there! Everything's just one to five blocks away! Pinkberry, Whole Foods, some fast food, a pizza place, other supermarkets. And a few more blocks of walk will bring me to Bloomingdale's, Central Park, and BonChon! I've even tried walking from our apartment to Times Square and Grand Central Terminal!
Now we've moved outside the city and oh how I've missed staying in Manhattan... I can just go out anytime I want. I'm not saying I don't what the area we're living at, it's actually nice and quiet and most importantly safe. I just can't help but miss the buzzing life in the city.
On the side note, I am always and forever thankful for having this opportunity to go to places I've only dreamed of. Dreams do come true!
I'm back (for now)!!
A few months ago, I started playing this strategy game in my Google Chrome browser. It's called Kingdom Rush by Ironhide Game Studio.
I got addicted to it and even tried harder campaigns/levels of the game!
Now, while looking for new apps for my iPhone, I found out that it's now free!
I think it was previously being sold at $1.99 (not sure). So now that it's free, I downloaded it immediately and here it is in my iPhone:
I will have to start from the first level, but it's fine with me! Happy freebie! :D
I wanted to buy a new case for my iPhone. I've been seeing cute cases and I wanted to try them out.
I saw one on eBay, a silicone case designed as a cassette tape. Cute, right? :D So I bid on it... £0.99 minimum, I bid less than £2.00 (I think?). Eventually I won the item for £0.99 with free delivery!
Yey, right? :D ... Nope! Not "yey!", but "oops!"!
When I received my order, I found out it was for an iPhone 3/3GS! What the...?!?!?! After receiving it, I went back to eBay and re-read the description, no mention of for what model it is for, I just assumed it was for an iPhone 4. The only hint is the picture the seller posted, which was not that big and clear at all!
So what to do with this?! I sold it on eBay. Also for £0.99, but I added the shipping cost. :D I'm just so glad I was able to resell it.
By the way, I left a negative feedback on the eBay seller because he/she lacks putting detailed description on the item he/she's selling. I checked the other negative feedbacks, and they have the same comment... the seller seldom put detailed description on the item. Bad seller!
Next time, read everything! Even the details in the picture!

Another event in history that hubby and I experienced while living in the UK - the London 2012 Olympics!
FYI I'm not a sporty person. Wait, let me rephrase that... I hate sports. But during the Olympics, I found myself switching the channels to the different events. I even accompanied hubby to watch the basketball game. And yes, he rooted for team USA even when his favourite NBA player, Dwyane Wade didn't play since his second favourite NBA player, Lebron James, was there. there's Kobe Bryant too!
It felt amazing and energizing. People's excitements and cheers were so contagious. I really feel happy and blessed because I can say that I have been a part of this. :)

Hubby and I watched a movie the other day, Marvel's Avengers Assemble. Great movie, by the way! Hihi!
Whenever we watch a movie, we usually take the aisle seats, unless it's a 3D movie. That day we decided to just watch the movie on 2D and all the aisle seats were taken, except the ones on the very top. All the seats on the top row were still available. So that's were we sat, at the top seats that's just past the aisle. The seats along the aisle would've been perfect because no one's blocking the view... except when people walk. So... no thanks!
After a few minutes, a couple sat on the top seats that's directly along the aisle. A minute or so after, the girl stood up and sat beside me, far away from the aisle, but the guy still stayed in his seat.
The seats started to fill up, until there were no more seats available on the top row. They also started dimming the lights, and then the guy stood up from his seat, went to the girl and talked to her.
Guy: What are you doing? Why are you sitting there?
Girl: I don't want the seat across the aisle.
Guy: You should've told me, I'd sit beside you.
And then the guy went back to his seat. Anyway, they can't do anything anymore because the cinema was packed up to the front row!
How about you? Where do you usually seat when watching a movie? And what if your movie companion wants another seat? Do you stay on the seat that you want, or move to sit beside your companion? :)
