Its hard not to develop feelings for a country after living there for a few years. Seriously.. I don't know how am I gonna survive the day I leave US for good. I mean.. I have been living there for the past 2 years and am gonna live there for the next 2 years or so depending where I'm gonna study for Graduate school. Even though I live in the suburbia and I'm a city girl, I have develop feelings for this "secluded" city of California.
Sigh.. everything is really so much more convenient in the US. You don't realize it until you come back to Malaysia and everything is not the way you're used to. Toilets are filthy here. Malaysians want to be civilized and take away the squatting toilet but the sitting one is always too disgusting to sit on. You have to thank you lucky stars if you actually find tissue paper and liquid soap inside the toilet.
In the US, even the toilet in the parks have tissue paper and soap. Those that are used by hippies and gangsters (I'm not being discriminating here!)
I have now became a girl that brings hand sanitizer everywhere I go. Don't judge me. I am just a clean freak now. Sigh..
The insurance system in the US is also different. Maybe I don't really know how the insurance system in Malaysia works but insurances like the Blue Advantage provides everything. You don't have to worry about your medical stuff because its all paid for. Or at least mine is.
I have also gotten used to the medical supplies and the convenience of having "cool" stuff here. Things that I always deemed too expensive but know it is good quality stuff is now my everyday used products here. That's because its soo much cheaper here!!! When you come back to Malaysia, you faint when you see the prize. And you go back to cheap brands.
US have changed me. I don't know for the better or worst. But.. I do know that I miss the US. Not because its great or grass is greener on the other side. But I have just gotten used to it. What am I gonna do.. Ahh...
