We ended our chat and quickly got ready so we could meet Yuka at the Melawati campus (the elementary school).
Success!! We actually made it somewhere without getting lost, turning around, the car breaking down or almost hitting a scooter.
We pulled a few minutes after ten. We met Mr. Yew the mechanic, who took the car for a test drive. Turns out the car is fine... especially when the emergency brake isn't engaged! It's just an older car, so we have just remember it will be a lot louder than what we are used to.
I am completely overwhelmed by where to start in my classroom. It is a weird feeling to come into a room with a ton of things left from the last teacher. I am not sure what to keep, throw out or organize. I have a few weeks to get it in order though. I just wish I had some fellow friends from the hills there to help me!
Once the car checked out, Yuka offered to show us the way to IKEA. We followed her without any hiccups and finally made it!!
We decided to pass on the prawn and opted for more of the comfort food option. All of that for about $8 USD!! What a deal. The little dessert next to the juice is called an egg tart. We just saw them on Samantha Brown's show on TLC. She was in Hong Kong and went to a bakery where all they made were these little treats. It was good; just a simple crust and it tasted like custard.
