Girls + DC Day 1

last week was a blast! it was my second time around in DC and this time it’s for an official business. anyways, just to make life easier, try picturing Sheraton Hotel, 2 double beds, plasma TV, a laptop, 4 girls, 1 big city, free shuttle to mall, Malaysian food, cherry blossoms, crazy taxi fares and one goal-scholarship.

1. Boston Logan International Airport. i was waiting to board at the terminal. anxious to meet with them girls. and then i got a text message from eva saying that she’s also boarding soon and that we’re gonna have asian food tonight! that girl, haha…i was thinking, where in the world are we gonna get asian food from? munched 6 teeny weeny peanut butter crackers while waiting. yum yum!

2. American flag flying high. one thing i noticed here in the States is that the Star-Spangled Banner can be seen almost everywhere. proud nation, wished more Jalur Gemilang are being put up. even the Toyota car dealer here has a flag put up. symbol of pride i guess.

3. i was seated in between 2 grown man who were both tall and big. the flight was so packed that no seats were left. i was lucky to be able to book it cos when my host mum did the booking, it was the last seat! i chatted a bit with the man on my left and he was very nice to me. helped me with my luggage and all. overall, good flight. cotton candy clouds and blue blue skies!

4. in the cab from Dulles Airport to meet the girls at Sheraton National. sarah loaned me this purse and i really like the size and design. thinking of getting one soon since we didn’t have enough time in DC, not to mention cash too. lol. called diane and texted eva. they were both waiting for me at the hotel lobby and i was excited to get there!

5. still on my way to Sheraton and i took a lot of pictures to fit in my ‘on the go’ folder. this was in a tunnel. love brightly lit tunnels. somehow, i don’t know why. and i was also relieved that my flight from Boston to DC went well.

6. my first encounter with cherry blossoms! how amazingly beautiful. and after that i continued snapping more photos of cherry blossoms for the rest of my stay cos i just can’t get enough of it. haha. i think this is when eva says “cos i’m awesome like that”. lol.

7. this is what greeted us after our flights and some misconception. i freakin’ went to the wrong sheraton. when i was there, i didn’t see eva or diane and i was starting to think that something’s wrong. i asked the front desk and they printed me a map of the correct sheraton national cos there seems to be a few sheratons around. the cab driver told me that this happens all the time haha, so it’s not my fault! cos i showed the driver the correct address. i asked for a second cab and they gave me a limo! silly me didn’t realize that too except for the fact that it’s gold and wicked huge! haha, quite obvious isn’t it? and then i met eva from arkansas and diane from indiana. we checked in our rooms and chatted while waiting for nilo to arrive from connecticut. when we met her at the lobby, she gave us a big hug. aww…

8. when i found out from eva and diane that we can hop on a free shuttle bus to pentagon city mall for dinner and the rest of our stay, i was so happy + excited! shopping in DC? c’mon! aww, eva’s not in this photo cos she snapped it. this is the third attempt and everyone was looking at us girls taking photo with the shuttle bus. lol.
