East Coast moments - Final Take

In Cornell, with the founder (Ezra Cornell)

In Changi Airport

With Dr. Andrew and family (Im not in the pic ;()

I'm here again for my last bit of the trip. After travelling to almost the whole part of the East Coast, we were ready to head back where we started, Ithaca to start packing up for our flight home. But before that we had a lil sight seeing in Ithaca cause we didn't get the chance to do it the last 2 weeks. We did some last minute shopping in Waterloo Premier Outlet and also visited another university, Cornell University.

I'd visited 4 out of 8 Ivy League unis already, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell and MIT (though I only passed through MIT cause didn't have enough time) but I would say Cornell was the nicest of all. Cornell was so huge I think it was easy to get lost there and the surrounding was so stunning and calming. But my mum said don't go here during winter, it's bloody cold you probably could get frostbite ;)

We had dinner at my mum's Fulbright host house, Dr. Andrew, a lecturer in Cornell. He married a Malaysian and the wife cooked fish curry and rice and apple pie and ate it with ice cream. Yum! After dinner we had to go back to the motel and started packing up. We had 6 luggages that had to be checked in plus another 6 carry-ons. Imagine what our trolley bags looked like.

So then I had to be on the 36 hours plane ride.....again! I'd had enough of plane rides for awhile now. In fact, I'd enough of all means of transportations. Planes, buses, trains, taxis even trishaws! They had trishaws in NYC. I been on all those transports for far too long during my trip that my whole body are so sored by now.

But the East Coast trip had been entertaining and some of the visits inspired me to be better ineverything like the Ivy League unis visits so that hopefully, I could be there again but as a student. Amin. :)

So now it was time to get back to reality back home in home sweet home, Malaysia and focus on studies and PMR. Oh god, PMR. My knees shaked just by typing the name.
