13pm-17pm MEET FRIEND IN MET MUSEUM
I used google map app to find direction. Before we met, we texted each other to check where we were instead of calling. After we met up, we decided to go to central park first because that morning I saw from news a lot kids were snow sliding in central park. We took pictures there and send to each other through mobile SMS message. While eating in the cafeteria, I chose TAZO tea bag instead of Lipton because TAZO is used in Starbucks. I showed my friend the pictures in my cellphone and camera about my trip to Mexico.
17pm-18:30pm ON SUBWAY TO FLUSHING
That day was Chinese New Year’s Eve and I was invited to dinner at my Taiwanese friend’s. I called them when I was on No.7 train and it’s the only train which has cellphone signal. Before heading to their house I bought gifts (Taiwan and China brand) in a Chinese supermarket. My phone was out of battery so I couldn’t use google map, I asked for help from others instead.
19pm- 22pm CHINESE NEW YEAR DINNER
There were 8 people in the dinner. Most of them are more than 50 years old, so most of the time I just listened to their topics which I am not really interested in, such as insurance, kids, church work, health, etc. After dinner, we watched CCTV New Year’s Gala on TV and talked about the performances.
My phone was dead for whole night and I felt insecure, so the first thing I did after going home was to charge my phone and check messages. Then I turned on laptop to check emails, receive phone bill thorough email and made payment on CHASE website, read FB to see how my friends celebrated the new year and liked their photos. I was going to read news about Taiwan so I went to Yahoo Taiwan website. However, I was distracted by entertainment and beauty news and linked to a beauty blog article which teaches how to touch up your makeup…

Used iphone to watch a video from Tony Award and searched about it. Searched for recipes and read other’s cooking blog.
