Re-visiting New York & DC ~ 16-19 March 2009
Whoops...I'm lagging behind on my updates...AGAIN!!! :p Nothing much have been goin' on with school lately, juz usual routine. It still takes me forever to combine my pics...haha...took too many pictures. I really love my new camera!!! :) Spring break was 2 weeks ago and most people went to the beaches, but I traveled up north to New York & Washington DC for the chilly weather instead...haha!! I've been to NY & DC last December but the main reason this time was to attend the World Learning Global UGRAD Re-Entry Workshop in DC.
I am a city lover. I love skyscrappers & the hustle & bustle of city life...but of course there're still some aspects that I don't like. I've been to big cities like Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, LA...and New York City!! I love NY and I was really excited the first time I went. I don't know why but I wasn't as excited this time, I guess itz coz I've been to most attractions already. As compared to NYC...DC is a nicer city.
Me, Uyanga & Htet flew from Huntsville to DC Ronald Reagan airport...transit at Detroit.
Arrived Washington DC & walked around Chinatown.
Chinese food for dinner...we ate as slow as we could to kill time while waiting to board our bus to NY at 11pm...hehe!!
Grand Central Station at 8am rush hour...women & 'men in black' suits...looked so pro...this is NY!!
St. Patrick's Day Parade...the marching bands were much better than the ones I saw during Mardi Gras.
The Apple Store in NY...I want everything here can ar...so cool la!!
'Over-working' my awesome camera in Central Park...such a nice park in the middle of this big city...me likey likey!!
"Pretty woman...walking down the streets...pretty woman...JULIA ROBERTS~!!" Oh yeah oh yeah...I can't believe we were soooo lucky to see Julia Roberts at Broadway...she was there for the 'Late Show with David Letterman'...that was sooo awesome!!
Dim Sum for brunch at Chinatown...it was sooo good!! 6 items for $36...equals RM126...for 2 person only...OMG~~!!
It took us more than an hour to walk across Brooklyn Bridge...coz we stopped every 5 steps to take pictures...hehe!! :p

Walking around NYC on nasty rainy day...introducing the 'latest fashion for 2009' in front of Times Square NYC.
I've only managed to finish combining the NY pictures...still lots more updates for the Re-Entry workshop in DC. Stay tuned! :) Time flies...it is now the last month of our program and most of my friends in UAH will be flying back home on Apr 30. Feels like it was just not long ago when we 1st arrived...doesn't seem like 8-months have passed by...wow!! This month-end is gonna be filled with mixed emotions...this UGRAD journey have been a fulfilling experience for everyone of us. :)
