traffic here in LA is not around in any corner here. So impressed with the clean and green.

I just don't like the food. My stomache can't accept it. My fiance is worried coz I'm saying I'm gonna die. I just drink water at all times.

Hope I would be able to get used to the foods here soon.

No security guards everywhere...



It depends where you live in america, here in Miami there are security guards even in the beach, school, and in the hospitals etc, its remind me of the philippines though.

yes, there are lots of obese people here and most of the restaurant here they serve a huge amount of food, im tired and sick of these and decided to take one order for the two of us instead of ordering for two.

just want to add;

People at the restaurants, malls, and stores are nice and friendly, they would always ask, " How are you?
Gasoline stations does not have workers to load gas in your car, you do it by yourself
Houses, buildings or establishments has huge bold nos., so easy to locate
Empty beverage bottles and cans can be returned for a refund
Yes, everything is big even the dogs and cats biggrin.gif
