Watched 7 films in cinema this month! Guess that fandango deal (2 tickets for $9) on Livingsocial has contributed quite a bit to box office.

X-man: first class
Pirates of the Caribbean 4
Kungfu Panda 2
Super 8
Midnight in Paris
Hangover 2
Transformer 3

more yet to come...

Save more on travel

bidding on has been my best pocket saving strategy when planning a trip. To save more, I would collect more useful information from other sources to help bid.

This site provides cash back if you click links through their site, for priceline, it's 2% cash back. So click through, bid your room, and get 2% on top of what you've won.

Hotwire works as a preference to how much you are offering on Priceline. Usually you should price lower on Priceline than Hotwire's offering. If you can't get a better deal on priceline, then buy it from Hotwire.
These two sites provide successful bidding information on Priceline and Hotwire. So before bidding, just go to these two sites, and check what other people have won and how much they are paying. The bottom line is, you shouldn't be paying more.

My trace in May

Having lived in Gainesville for two years, I kinda like the way life is. Going to school is routine, having my own room with independent bathroom, which I would've never thought about when I was back in college in China. Comes weekend or study break, I could just drive my car to the beaches or to the cities for fun. Shopping is easy, everything can be purchased online, and I'm enjoying seeking deals whenever making a purchase. All these little details keep bringing me the hope of an even better life here. Going back to China is such a long way. From the time I got on the plane to the moment I got off the third plane in Beijing, it's about 24 hours. Followed by a wonderful month of adventures.
