I dont want to use internet everytime to install common application like vlc, etc.. Is there a site for portable apps for ubuntu ?
You just have to download the file ,then make it executable and Run it!
You could download its .DEB package file, copy it to a USB pendrive or CD, and then install at your friend's house, even if he doesnt have internet. Its as simple as double-clicking the .DEB file. It will open a windows telling you about the program, and, if all dependencies are satisfied, you can click "install". Simple as that.

Most of Ubuntu (Linux in general) software which has no specific (read lack) dependencies may run from your home directory (or USB stick). Several steps to follow:
a) find an archived version of software you need,
b) unarchive a software to you home folder or USB stick,
c) set 'executable' flag in properties of main executable file,
d) just run an executable.
It should be running with no complications.
