Trip back to Taiwan...


小抱怨


因為暑假機位一位難求, 當我三月底訂機票時已經沒什麼選擇了. 所以我飛到洛杉磯AA由轉華航時還得把行李領出來再check in. 其實這也沒什麼, 但是洛杉磯機場真是有夠亂的. 先是AA和國際線的其他班機在不同航廈, 所以我得拎著我所有的行李走出AA航廈到國際航廈. 要租推車的話一個三塊美元, 我一看價錢就不想租了….. 還好走了一小段就看到他們還沒收完的車子, 我也不管三七二十一就拿了一輛. 到了國際航廈在門口就被一個看似服務人員的人問說我要去那裡, 他跟我說明怎麼去華航櫃台後就拿出一個本子說請我捐錢給孤兒. 我想說做善事也好啦就捐了一些. 到了裡面才發現有一堆有的沒的團體在這邊要錢, 多到機場廣播還聲明要錢的跟他們沒關係…. 許是警戒程度又提高了, 因此在你到櫃台check in之前得先把你要托運的行李拿去過X, 而他們只有幾台機器因此光是排那個就排了將近20分鐘, 然後又要到櫃台排check in, 真是夠沒效率的, 排隊的人也亂成一團. 還好要進候機室的安檢隊伍不長, 等到終於到登機門也已經是一個多小時之後的事了, 真是有夠塞的…. 我不禁懷念起卡城小小的機場, 因為登機人數少只要在半個小時前到就行了, 下次訂機票絕對不再這麼訂了….  


 



小高興


我在洛杉磯通關時有個安檢人員跟我說我很漂亮耶!! 還問我結婚了沒有, 害我心情頓時大好~~ 誰會想到我穿著隨便的衣服又沒化妝還會被人稱讚!! 這樣隨便就嫁給Sam是不是太便宜他啦?? 


 


結論


1.華航的空姐真的都很漂亮,我最喜歡她們的制服了!!


2.華航的食物還不錯,最喜歡它們香香熱熱的餐包了!


3.台灣人的購買力真強, 連在飛機上大量購買免稅商品的機會都不放過....


4.第一次到第二航廈,地板真是閃亮!! (還小小上了這一季的Amazing Race耶!!)

It is HUGE!!!!

After hearing about this place for so long and passing it by a couple of times, today I finally got to go shopping at San Marcos Outlet.

 

Although it is only half an hour away from Austin and San Antonio, it took us 3 hours to get here from College Station (Why is it so far away?!). The first thing that came to both Sam and I were: This place is HUGE!! Sam is especially shock because this is the first time he had ever visited an outlet, and in his impression an outlet is nothing more different than a mall. I think this is the biggest outlet I've been to besides Woodbury. It even has a cute Hispanic feel to the buildings~

 

There are actually 2 outlets right across the street from each other, so I will say there are approximately 200 stores total in this area. You can find all the stores you can think of here, COACH (Huge collections), Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Polo are just some of it, they even have a huge Pottery Barn store and Neiman Marcus Clearance store (of course I still have afford anything from this store even the price are marked down...).  We were there for 6 hours and we only went through one of the outlets....

 

I was actually behaving this time and only got a pair of shorts from Ann Taylor, not that I don't want to buy anything, it's just that I have a bad habbit of not liking to shop in a store that is [acked with people. And since this is Mother's Day weekend, there are a lot of people in all the stores. Espacially in Nine West and COACH!!! It was like a supermarket in there!!!! Packed with aggrasive women hunting for shoes and bags!!!

 

Surprisingly, Sam did REALLY well in this shopping spree. We found him a nice dress shoes in Clarks, a pair of jeans, a pair of shorts and we even throw in a belt from CK, and some shocks and some wallet for gifts. We were both happy that he finally found some jeans that he likes. He was always wearing the same jeans and now he can finally sweach them out once in a while....

 

Anyway, my legs are so sore right now and I really feel like to just crash in my bed..... But girls, if any of you want to shop like crazy, you are always welcome to come here and we can do this again!! If only I lived closer to the outlet......
