  4. Hi jook sing Muslimah. Really nice to meet you here, I've been living in the state before (for few mths), but only stayed in big cities, Hawaii, San Fran, NY ... the Chinese food in the state are really high standard. But I remember when my friends visited me from Minnesota and Massachusetts, they shopped in China Town seriously because their town don't have such things.

    Yes, I studied Deutsch for 2 years, but now almost forget all. I also lived in Germany for few months to test what I have learn. It was a great experience.
