Our first impression of USA was met with our expectations of it being all spruced up just like the street of Desperate housewives. We bumped into a few Susans, Brees and Lynettes minding their chores or walking their dogs but never a sight of Mike fixing a household. sigh! ;o) I took a 360 degree turn to enjoy the welcoming view of the entire Kampung, appreciating the presence of a friend who like me felt the experience was too surreal. The landscape was preparing itself to usher Autumn, the temperature was decreasing, the leaves were falling and we were freezing.
It was drizzling on the first day at Kampung Bloomingdale. But that did not deter us from trampling on the fallen leaves leaving our footprints on the sidewalks. We dashed to the nearest grocery store, raced to the nearby lake and skipped all the way back. Everything was almost in a walking distance from our hotel but when the temperature dropped too drastically we would take the free shuttle service provided by the hotel. Selepas tahu mengenai perkhidmatan percuma itu, tidaklah kami dengan kurang bijaknya berjalan kesejukan lagi.
We took refuge in Kampung Bloomingdale folks... it was our home away from home.
