First day in Mobile, Alabama

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, March 20, 2005
Woke up at 6:15am this morning. CT couldnt sleep and said he needed to get used to waking up early. So, I woke up together with him and had maggi noodles for breakfast. CT spent whole morning getting the internet by making calls to establish a connection. I was busy channel surfing on TV as there are about 70 channels on cable TV. They have a golf channel, food channel, lots of sports, news and movies channel, cartoon channels,Game show channel as well. Spent the rest of morning to unpack and arrange it nicely into the various cabinets.

Went out 12 noon to walk about in our area and went to JS place as a meeting place. We met up with everyone and was brought around by the 1st batch. They took us to a Chinese buffet place called Chinatown restaurant for lunch. It was yummy and cheap! Costs about US$8 per person plus tax. The buffets here are cheap. After lunch, we were driven around downtown and to the USS Battleship park. Awesome and big ship!

After that, we shopped at Walmart Supercenter and a place which sell electronics called Best Buy. It is all along Airport Blvd Rd. After that, we went to Winn Dixie for another round of grocery shopping. Heard they sell fresher food. It is very reasonably priced as I used the discount card. After shopping, we went for another buffet dinner at a western place called Barnhill's buffet. It was not fantastic as there were a lot of fried food. My brother would love it. Costs about US$12 per person. Dinner is usually more expensive.

After dinner, we went back to our apartments. Had a great day of shopping and looking at the place. Mobile, Alabama is a pleasant city. Not congested at all even downtown. They have a lot of supermarkets and shops-huge and spaced out. You would really need to own a car to be here as I have hardly seen any public transportation around here.
