Shopping Spree + Cooking

Since the food in campus is seriously yucky and expensive, my housemates and I decided to take the weekly shuttle service to Tesco to buy raw food to cook some meals. So, 3 girls happily went to Tesco with 1 ultimate target behind-- prepare to food for a week!

After merely 1.5 hours, we managed to get salt, oil, oyster sauce, tomyam stock, chicken thigh, kubis, siew pak choy, carrots, eggs, bread, rice, onion, garlic, apples, mihun, meesua, milk, pepper, pan set, soy sauce, tauge, frozen buns, plates, butter, chocolate spread, tuna fish, spaghetti, sauce, mixed veggie for fried rice, cheese, kitchen cloths, sesame oil, pillow, and the list goes on..

3 girls with so many stuff, so it was pretty tiring to board the bus.. Sin Lee nearly lose balance n fall as she board the bus, haha... Finally we got home! These are what we have bought!
We spent less than 1 hour to cook, eat and clean up.. Our 1st self-prepared meal in EduSquare-- Tadah!! Fried Bee Hoon.. Super nice weh!! This pot fed 4 girls.. costs us less than RM1 each.. haha.. So happy!

My New Squatting Place-- EduSquare!

I am finally in EduSquare, my off-campus accomodation in University of Nottingham! It is a 2-storey bungalow with about 14 single rooms, with ensuite bathroom. I am sharing bathroom with another girl. So far there are 9 girls in my house already, 7 from Malaysia, 1 from China and 1 fro m UK.
I am very satisfied with this place! There are bed with thick mattress, study table, wardrobe, ceiling fan, dressing table and air-conditioner at seperate charge in my room. Microwave ovens, stove, fridges, rice cookers, kettles are available in kitchen. Sofa set and LCD TV are also given in living room. There are even dining tables and chairs.. Cool!
Guards are always on duty, just to guard about 10 houses in my area.. haha.. so nice right.. On Day1, i even asked the guard to kill a gigantic spider in my room!

My house is just 10mins walk from the campus, but there are no trees around the area, so basically I will be grilled under the hot sun as i walk.. One more problem here is.. THERE IS NO FIXED PHONE LINE! So.. i wonder if i can subscribe to Streamyx or any other stable and fast internet service at reasonable price.

There is shuttle bus service that goes around campus, EduSquare, Semenyoh Town, Kajang Town and all the wya to Kajang KTM. I m pretty satisfied with the service so far. There is no hawker stalls, mamak, or restaurant within walking distance. So, the only choice i hv nearby is cafe in campus which serves expensive and yucky food... Urgh.. but seemed like there is catering service at reasonable price. Hopefully it s good, so that i will still b chubby.. haha..

看了很多很多的房间,还上了一个3个小时的forensic science lecture。
加上身边的朋友真的几乎全部都已经上大学了,可以很光荣的说“我今年大一!”,我开始向往大学生活了,虽然朋友都说大学生不简单,当初初级学院是老师说的什么“熬过A level上大学就简单多了”都是骗人的。。
