Greetings all! It's Friday and it means weekend is just around the corner! =)
But as a mom weekend doesnt mean anything cause I gotto work still....... :(
Anyway thats not what I wanna talk about today. This is the continuation of my US travelogue and also the first post of New York City (NYC)! ;)
We stayed at NYC for 3 nights and basically it's more to shopping. Many of us keep the money at the beginning of the trip and wait til we reached NYC to spend! Haha!
But of course apart from shopping we visited some of the famous landmarks of NYC, such as the Wall Street, financial district of NYC.
Wall Street is famous for its Wall Street Bull! The Bull is situated in the middle of the road hence we have to be careful when taking photos here cause vehicles are coming from 2 directions
Hubs and I with the Bull. Very hard to take proper photo with it cause too many tourists!
We dint mean anything bad by posing this. Just for fun *shy*
It was a cloudy morning. Temperature around 3'c
See the number of tourists!
This man pratically knows every country's national anthem. We told him we are from Malaysian and surprisingly he played our Negarakku!
We walked around Wall Street and that's the George Washington's statue behind me. The building is called Federal Hall, its the first capitol building of the US
That's our tour guide Ann in black sweater, she is originally from Taiwan
Behind me is the New York Stock Exchange
The Trump Building
NY double decker bus and yellow cab
So many yellow cabs! Love this scene!
You know I never thought I'd come to New York cause to me US is too far away (not to mention the cost to travel here) and all the visa thingy seems hard for younger people (well that's what I heard la).
But actually the visa application now is slightly easier already and basically easy to approve. As for the cost and pocket money, I must thank my FIL for his generous kindness <3
It was snowing the day before we reached NY
Besides Wall Street, another main attraction of NYC is of course its glamorous Times Square! We stayed at Hilton Times Square and this is such a strategic hotel! Just walk out from the hotel entrance and all beautiful lights are here welcoming you!
This is the morning view of Times Square
Not too happening cause its early morning
Needless to say, the night view is more awesome! Very very crowded and happening!
The beautiful signboards
I can see police are everywhere here
Woohoo! York Mei is finally here at New York! ;)
Smurfs! There're alot of cute mascots here waving to take photos with you. But of course its not free la!
It is very crowded here regardless of time. Times Square is truly a city that never sleeps, photo taken at nearly 12am but people are everywhere. Some stores here open til midnight.
According to the tour guide, Tokyo has similar big signboards and they are nicer than Times Square. But to me, everything is already so wonderful here at Times Square! I cant imagine how beautiful things are at Tokyo! ;)
I can walk here all night, seriously. Just to feel the atmosphere and taking photos of every corner =)
