    I didn't bring ANYTHING to decorate the walls in my room. I bought a scarf from Morocco and a furushiki (scarf for a lunch box) in Japan. This time, I'm bringing lotsa posters. "The Crow", my fishies, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
    Also, bring a nice outfit. Not a work outfit, but like a cocktail dress or something. You can buy one there, but there may be a nice dance for you to go to. I had my parents bring it down when they came to visit.

    I'm actually about to go babysit julia...I rest my case! i fought boredom and boredom won!

    You will need a sweater and most likely a jacket too. it gets cold at night and in winter, but also air conditioning there is FREEZING!

    New York is a city on the east coast of america. huge big city with the best shopping ever! But there are loads of places to shop in florida. and a lot of clothes shops are affordable!

    oh. you guys are talking about the capital New YOrk ICty. haha. of course. I know what it is and where it is. But I have NEVEr thought of going from Floida to NEw York ICty as it is sooo far away. My fd who will be working in Virginia may not go to New York CIty though Vir. is much more close to NYC compared with Florida.

    Melissa! CHILL!!!! lol If clothing is cheap in HK, buy it there, if you will need anything else or forget to bring anything you can still buy it in Florida. There are many cheap places. NYC is not that far away if you fly there. I went for only 4 days and it was sooo much fun!
    You will need a few sweaters for the apt., as it can get very chilly with the a/c. BUT you are only staying for three months, so you shouldn't worry yourself that much. You will be fine, believe me. Just take the stuff you would take for any vacation and everything else you might need....they will have it in Florida for a reasonable price. And yes, bring an umbrella for sure!

    Rain was not always fun to have. especially because all the guest will run into the shops and restaurants, sitting on the floor, talking loud and complaining about the prices... u u have bad luck u might have to stay outside at the carts when it starts to rain, then u will be wet, wet, wet and u gonna freeze inside because of the ac :mad: i remember one evening when all my roomies came home and we had 6 pairs of shoes in our tryer ;D because it rained so much and we had to use them the next day... :)
