Backdating an entry after finally getting to use a computer.
02232007 (Following US convention) 1130
So much for UA, we had totally NO entertainment
Reached Chicago at 1130 and was stuck at the custom for like more than 1.5 hours and in the end, we missed our flight to Indianapolis. We had to wait for another flight at 4 Chicago time (14hrs slower than Singapore). We roamed about in the airport and was amazed at how stupid customs was. Take this off and so on and so forth. From the way it looks, even if we crossed customs at 1230, we would still miss the flight. Had a subway kind of burger for late lunch.
The scheduled flight at 4 was eventually delayed and we had to wait on the stupid plane while they do their repairing outside. In the end the 1 hour flight bacame a 2 hr one with the wait in the plane for roughly 1 hr. Tsk!
It was very cold when we reached. Our seniors got us a cab but we waited for a long time before it came. By the time we reached the apartment, it wsa like 8 plus. We were cold and hungry :( Luckily, they bought us mcDonalds for dinner.
Bedtime was like 2300 hrs (12 pm 02242007 in SG) for me and I dozed off after suddenly feeling lonely in this foreign land.
Day started with trip down to the supermarket to buy some stuff for use. Had pizza for lunch and went to the downtown mall for shopping. On our way back to the apartment, there was light hail. First time, I see hail. It does hit the face hard. :P But I guess the wind factor makes it colder. (now here typing and still deciding the specs for my macbook. To those who smsed me, yes I reached safely. Not much cuties here except for ang mohs and well it is a zzz place)
