Living in California, the subtle differences

by on Sep.28, 2009, under California

After living in California for a few week, you start to notice the differences, here I’ve compiled a short list:

  1. Its not a Washroom, its a Restroom (i’ve gotten weird blank stares when i said washroom)
  2. The debit cards here also function as a credit card
  3. The handle for the flush on the urinals are on the opposite side
  4. The merge lanes onto the highway are incredible short
  5. Having said 5, people actually yield to you when merging
  6. Having said 5 and 6 can, no one knows how to drive when it rains
  7. Gas is prepaid here, you gotta pay before you fill (i was at a gas station and tried to fill normally, i kept trying but no gas would come out, after 5 mins of looking idiotic and clueless, some guy came up to me and said to me that i had to pay first T_T)
  8. Its not Pop is a Soda
  9. Having said 8, Drink are bottomless at fast food places and at most restaurant (in fact, at most fast foods, the fountain drink machines is self serve)
  10. Having said 8 and 9, here is the conversion chart for drink sizes here
    Canada USA
    Small N/A
    Medium Small
    Large Medium
    Supersize Large
    N/A Supersize
    WTF Supersize+
    WTF+ Supersize++
  11. 100F is very hot
  12. You want ham on your pizza? Oh so sorry, we have Canadian Bacon
  13. The waiters here always brings your bill before you ask for it
  14. People tip more here, 18%
  15. The sell fried pork rinds here:

Ok, it looks like my “short list” has grown into a large list. I will stop now.

More to come…

Onwards to Santa Clara, California

by on Sep.15, 2009, under California

I guess i really should have started writing this two weeks ago, when I arrive in California, but some many things are going on, I never seem to got the time to really settle down and write something! I guess here we go!

On Friday, August 28th, i hopped on my American Airlines flight to san jose, it was a long flight with connection in Chicago, but thank goodness the 5hr stretch has wifi internet so i can surf the web!

Concourse B at Toronto Pearson Airport:

Chicago O’Hare Airport

My Wifi setup on the airplane!

I’m currently staying at this place called “Greenpointe Apartments”. The place is ok, nothing special. Kinda old though..At least its close to work which is NVIDIA, around 10 mins on bike!

Ok, it looks like ive hit some kind of writer’s (blogger’s) block? Its getting late and my brain cant really compose coherent sentences anymore. WRITE MORE SOON!
