I had graduated from OCC a couple of years ago and yet till this day, I still kept in touch with the proffesors. The staffs and teachers at OCC are friendly and helpful. They want to see you excel in your studies and try their best to help you when they see you failing. The school might be small compared to other colleges, however everybody will find OCC one of the friendliest colleges!
When I ran out of ideas to buy gifts for my young cousins, I will stop by Mrs Nelsons Toy & Book Shop to make a selection. They have several items that can be found in big bookstores. However one thing that is different is you can find that the staffs at Mrs Nelsons Toy & Book Shop seems to know everything that they are selling. They make good recommendations and you will feel really warm and cosy once you stepped into the store. One thing though to have in mind is that the items in the book shop is pricier than the big bookstore out there, so don't expect to go to the bookstore and find a bargain! Though you may find it when they have a sale.
Lamps Plus has a wide collectiction of different lightings. Don't be deceived by their name, they also sell mirrors at their store too. They have different price range for the lightings and a lot of designs. One thing I don't like about the store is it is very messy. Stuffs are all over the place and they do not have a lot of staff. So you might have to wait sometimes as they are busy helping other people.
Sonshine Christian Stores are always up to date with the latest release of the books and Christian CDs. I love getting the items here as they are always neatly displayed and easy to find. You can also get gifts or bibles for anyone. They have different versions of bibles and you will be able to find one that you can afford.
Life Plaza is a nice place to hang out with friends on weekends. They have a gift shops and best of all a comic rental place. They have a lot of Japanese comics and they are available for rental based on points system. They also have a lot of Asian magazines for sale. The store is neat and big. When you ran out of ideas as to what gifts to get for your friend, stop by this place, you will definitely find something!
Lily's Bakery has small cakes or breads that you can preorder or buy on spot. Its a great place to get small snacks for meetings or parties. The bread with ham is really good but their cakes can get quiet pricey.
Post Box Plus not only specializes in mail services and also wire remittance through western union. They also have post box that you can rent. The place is pretty small but easy to locate.
Its easy to rent a car from thrifty. All you need to do is reserve it online and pick it up from the location. Fast, simple but not cheap. The cars can be pretty expensive if you comfort is what you seek.
Video 94 has the latest taiwanese and hong kong drama series. The rental is based on a point system. You purchase the points in advance and they deduct it every time you rent a video tapes or vcds. One con about this place or most chinese video store is the video quality is not that good. So expect to see some blurry images when watching the video.
Video Vision has specials on Wednesday where you can rent any DVDs for 99 cents. They are up to date regarding the latest release however I wish they will extend the rental days longer. Currently their policy is to return the movies the next day which is too short.
