A Taste Of American Football

My first American football game! No kidding! Americans are SERIOUS about football! The stadium was packed! People camped outside the stadium a night before the game just to get good seats. People paint their body. What can I say? ORANGE POWER!!!
I got there 3 hours before the game and all the lines at all the gates were already so looonggg! And we were waiting under the hot scourging sun 😦
Anyway, it was really worth it cause we got good seats!
And this is me and Jessie before the game 🙂
There were more than 50,000 people in that stadium and there’s no reception! Ugh!
And here comes the cowboys warming up
That’s me and Laura with our painted face.
And the AWESOME OSU Marching BAND!
Pistol Pete came in shortly after that!
And us singing the Fight Song! Ride ’em Cowboys!
OSU cheerleaders!
Finally!!! The OSU COWBOOYYSSSS!!!
Boo, Washington State!!
Half the gang! The rest were too into the game!
And of course, WE WON!!!! 65-17!
Go POKES!!
It was a really good game! And I learned so much from my tutor- Laura! It was a really really awesome experience and I’m glad I got Season Tickets cause there will be 6 more games to go!

Work Hard, Play Harder!

First week has been crazy hectic– especially with the tight school and work schedule I have, I barely have time for myself. I usually get home at around 5-6pm, prepare dinner then go out to socialize (it’s apparently a requirement!). At the end of the night, I’m so exhausted and just don’t want to do anything else. Anyway, in the midst of my busy schedule, I’m still have fun with my besties. And here are some photos of what I have been up to lately 🙂
Trying to get Asia and Jessie out of bed so we could go to the party at Bennett Lawn!!

Mini pool fight. It was cute 🙂
Da gang!

Bingo night!
Calling out numbers
Jessie, Asia and I not having any luck! Until Asia won a boardgame! Dang it!
Me in Pistol Pete and Asia getting shot
Bingo lingo! It’s free and if you’re lucky, you get to win stuff like Wii, Xbox, PS2/3, Nintendo DSi, boardgames and etc! I LOVE OSU!

Start Of Something New

Summer 2010 was GREAT! Went back home to Malaysia and did what I planned to do- well, except studying for GRE and taking piano classes. Apart from that, I enjoyed myself soooo much that I actually felt homesick when I arrived in San Francisco on Monday.
So, yes! I’m back in America for my FINAL semester of my bachelor’s degree! Happy and sad. Happy because it’s my FINAL semester. Sad because I think I will miss uni life, and especially Oklahoma State University! Blah aside, let me blog on my recent trip to San Francisco.
People have been telling me how GREAT San Francisco is and it can be rated as one of the best cities in the world…. NOT!! So, Davod and I decided to travel together and I went on the trip without expecting anything cause I did not want to disappoint myself. However, even with the least expectation I have in the city, it fails to impress me to a certain level.
Firstly, there are sooooo many homeless people around. If they are minding their own business, that’s fine. But they are harassing me and all that everytime I walk by. I need my own space, for goodness sake!
Secondly, people blaring horns like it’s the end of the world! Such impatient drivers just drive me nuts! And the ambulance, firemen, police seems to be always on the roll ALL the time!
Thirdly, I was just walking around downtown and there were some streets that are soooo dodgy! It looks so dangerous and people were screaming here and there. I felt really unsafe and I felt like someone is gonna gang up with their friends on me and rape/mug/kidnap (San Fran has the HIGHEST kidnapping case btw!) me anytime. So, I literally ran to another street 😦
Moreover, shopping in San Francisco is nothing compared to New York City 5th Avenue! I miss New York 😦
HOWEVER, there are some good sides of San Francisco- but not in downtown. My friend from OSU- Evi, is from San Francisco. So she brought us around outside the city center.
We went to the Golden Gate Bridge..
.. and to the Fisherman’s Wharf @ Pier 39. That was probably the HIGHLIGHT of my trip.
And oh.. I also went and see WICKED the musical. It’s SO AWESOME!!! I had an overall okay trip, despite the jetlag and feeling unsafe in the city and all. I also had an awesome travel companion- Davod!

Rodeo

So my American foster family- Bill and Esther Clair invited me and my friends to a rodeo at Guthrie. We were so excited cause it was our first time seeing a rodeo. How exciting! So, they picked us up and it took us about an hour to get to Guthrie and the it was AWESOME! Spotted some hot cowboys and it was overall a pleasant evening.
This is me, Essi and Elli
Me and the Clairs’ at the rodeo

It got so cold and rainy in the late evening.
Thanks, Esther and Bill for the great American experience!
Word Of The Day: Berkuda (Malay) = Rodeo
