See here for part 5.

Getting really tired of not having a proper sleep pattern, I posted about it in the lounge and of course, got the good replies needed and was 'diagnosed' with jet lag. Honestly, as I've mentioned previously, I dismissed jet lag, thinking it wouldn't linger for so long. Dumbo.

So, as per Terry B's and Andrea's recommendation, I took down what I needed to get for the day from the drug store : Melatonin and sudafed.

I left my hotel a little before 2pm and headed to the store in Anaheim Garden Walk where the girl I met yesterday worked at. We chatted for a little while as there weren't any customers at that time and I got an iced lemon tea which proved to be a perfect complement to the warm day.

Here are some shots of my trip to the mall:

(This is the Residence Inn that was a couple of minutes away from my hotel)

Can't say much other than it's a tree.

After getting those shots and talking to my new friend, I headed to a CVS that was a few blocks away and proceeded to get the melatonin and sudafed.

I can't recall which one, but they needed my ID or something like that for notification for one of the products, all because some whackjob decided to make some sort of drug (or was it explosives?) with one of the meds.

<a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/ridzster/3368081286/" title="IMGP0067 by ridzster, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3447/3368081286_ddeb6af862_b.jpg" width="1024" height="766" alt="IMGP0067" /></a>

After that, I went to Food4Less to get some eggs, pudding and some gravy seasoning for mashed potatoes and then headed home.

Later on in the evening, I went over for a nice stroll at The Block and chatted with the friends I made from the other day.

A nice evening and all in all, it was a good day indeed.

That night, I put the meds to the test and took 2 tablets of melatonin per Terry B's recommendation and was knocked out pretty soon after.

It's a frickin miracle drug.

Just keep an eye out for the nausea, feelings of bloating, dehydration, night sweats, tremors, despondency, hives, dry eyes, constipation, impotence, thoughts of suicide and report any erection lasting for more than 26 hours to the Guiness Book of World Records.

Wow I've stayed at that Residence Inn probably four times. Cool place.
I've LIVED there :)

Really awesome place. I always try to stay at either that or a Courtyard by Marriott if it's gonna be a short stint since it won't cost too much. Long term, err, $$$$ !!!


I would have stayed there if it didn't cost almost twice what I was paying for my hotel.
