I am back to the good old US of America! I am a big fanatic for USA! Flying to US was fun and at the same time tiring.
We transit in Shanghai ate few Shanghai-nese “Siu Long Pau” and beef noodles before we departed to Chicago O’hare Airport. The tarmac was covered with snow when the plane landed. Kent was really inspired to see the whole trail was covered with snow. What excites us most was when we notice our favorite diner at the corner. JOHNNY ROCKETS! After 2 and half years we finally get a bite one the fries and burgers. Well the taste is a bit out of our expectation. It’s not the taste we had while we were in Coconut Groove.
Arriving in Chicago Airport
We departed to Greensboro, North Carolina via a jet where it can only occupy less than 30 passengers. It kinda looks like a private jet. It was a cool experience to be in one of that kind of jet. The size of the jet is less significant than a coach.
How the flight looks like. Smaller than a bus.
As we reach Greensboro Airport, we were greeted with a big FAVE FAN WINNERS welcome banners. We were showed to our limo with a big Fave Fan sticker at the side of the limo’s door. It was posh and I felt like a celebrities. As when we reached the hotel, man I was totally amazed. You should check out Gralyns. It was a first manor house I ever lived in. I couldn’t sleep that night I was there to explore the manor house. It was truly amazing to be in it.
Grayln House Manor
There are 9 winners of Fave Fan around the world. We were all treated like Kings and Queens not only in the mansion but everywhere we go. We were greeted by a band, the mayor, CEO of Krispy Kreme, we were escorted by police, cameras, videos, what I love most we have fans and we were on TV news! It was eye opening and I felt proud at every moment.
I get to gain knowledge of and understand the cultural from all the winners, tasted the Moravian pie, I have the comprehension to make doughnut. How a multinational company’s CEO can be that kind and nice. How the organization of a Western company is so much dissimilarity than the Chinese companies. How the first tobacco came to Winston Salem. Identify who RJ Reynolds was. Exploring RJ’s house and discover history.
While in Salem Winston, I visited Reynolda Village and House, Old Salem, few university, renowned NBA basketball court. Then everything and whereabouts is Krispy Kreme headquarters, factory, and etc. I will let some pictures do the talking.
