Arrived at New York 4 days ago (Friday). wasn't that cold when I got here. Gabi na so we just proceeded to our rented place-- Ok yung place, we each have our own beds. Alvin's bed reminds me of Ge because he has the same sheets! Haha. Yun nga lang, walang internet..The best thing though about our place is that we have our own TV. yahoo!! Gossip Girl resumes tonight at 8PM!!!
The next day (SaturdaY), bought my metrocard (subway) for $81 good for a month. Met up with Sandee in Manhattan, tried to remember all the transfers and trains I should take (sana di makalimutan). Went back to Queens and ate breakfast at a pinoy restaurant operated by our foster dad. Hehe. Then we're off to Tanger Mall--the shopping heaven of New York!!!! Super discounted items in the outlet stores. There's bath and body works, anne taylor, coach, the dressbarn, nine west, liz clairborne, esprit, aldo, gap, etc etc etc!!!! Went crazy at aldo and bought two shoes and 1 bag, all for $46! Isn't that greaaat? I also bought some pasalubongs for my brother and batchmates. And yeah, i bought a dress for our anniversary. :D
Sandee slept over because we finished dinner late. Had dinner with our foster family, we ate too much red meat (steaks) and drank heineken! Haha. after eating nag-SGD kami with ronnie's tito. yeah, SGD. like we were asked kung anong specialty gusto namin, we talked about healthcare in the Philippines, here in the US, malpractice issues, etc. SGD eto!
The next day (Sunday) was spent around Central Park. Took lots of pictures, bought some souvenirs. Lakad lang kami ng lakad ni Alvin Chu while waiting for Sandee. We must've walked like 10 blocks or more!! Super cold yesterday, i was "forced" tuloy to buy a thicker jacket at Zara. Discounted, i love it!!!!!
And today (Monday), we're officially starting our elective. We're here at the Mount Sinai Library, reading these modules on their health privacy laws, issues, etc and answering required quizzes. The hospital looks like a museum!!
