But it was also because there was so much to share I couldn't decide where to start. I mean, JL and I made so many lists to prepare for our immigration paperwork, to offload quite a number of household appliances and furniture, to get to know New York better so we could zoom in to our preferred neighbourhood, to setup banking services there, to single out immediate essentials for the suitcases, near-immediate items for airfreight while leaving the rest for container sea shipment, all these to facilitate our move from 3,600 square feet of spaciousness to 1,200 square feet of Manhattan "massiveness".
When friends learned that we were moving here, almost everyone felt excited and happy for us, with some expressing positive jealousy, and then, some others instantly establishing well-founded reason for a trip here very soon. Thanks, you guys, for all these. We hope when your turn comes (yayy!!), you'll be just as excited getting your all paperwork covered, since there is very little one can do without social security number and credit history (more on that later). We also hope you understand moving here to live is very different from a two-week holiday in the US.
Welcome to America!
