New York, New York

my dad took us to NY, parked our car. da parking in US is really expensive, today, its 12 USD for da whole day, which is considered cheap. other days its about 10 USD per hour! pay until we 'lut fu'! after dat, we walked around NY. its flooded wif ppl everywhere. first thing we saw the tallest christmas tree in da world at rockerfella center (father's place). its about 20 feet tall! and theres an ice skating ring nearby which is da center of attention. there r lots of broadway shows going on, n my! da queues r soooo long! we grab a few samples of food on da way, which is quite good. then we passed by a haunted house, which also has a long queue. i wanted to see, but my dad wouldnt allow, hes not a fan of horror. guess wut? madam trussaue's is there too! but we didnt go in as da line was also long. went to see time square in da morning. hmm, nothing special. oh ya, trump hotel n buildings r like practically everywhere! if u see the apprentice, u should noe who donald trump is. later, we went to macy's. the biggest shopping mall. it had 9 floors, and very very big. da store soncept is like jusco, stuff all around, but neatly placed, no individual shop outlets like wut m'sia malls haf. hmm, shopping heaven!

later, we went down to china town by train. there r lots of chinese, but most of them r mainly from mainland china, so their slang is diff, when they speak chinese, i sumtimes gotta take time to understand wut they r trying to say. for dinner, my dad took us to a m'sian restaurant, where they serve m'sian food like nasi lemak, roti canai, kangkung...well, i gotta admit m'sian food in m'sia is still da best. its not dat nice over here. aww...i really miss m'sian food...

went back to NY, to see time square at night. wow, it was breathtaking and beautiful! lights everywhere! too bad i dun haf da pics to show ur coz being da 'big head prawn', i 4got to bring da camera along...but i promise i will take it wif me next time i visit NY! its getting late now, i better go n sleep, peace out!

refridgerator

brrr,its cold in here, feels like im living in a fridge! no, make it da freezer! its 4 degress here, dat means i hafta wear 2 shirts n 2 pants to keep myself warm, n dats just in da hse! thank goodness i haf no jetlag, i sleep throughout da nite, so im feeling good now. had cranberry juice wif biscuits toppped wif cheddar cheese n jalapeno pepper cheese....mmm mmm, scrumptious! (fattening too!) well, its ok to indulge once in a while, can i hear an amen to this? took a walk wif my mom to a grocery shop nearby, n u'll b taken aback by da prices. spring onions n coriander ( cong n yim sai) here costs 1.79 US dollars each! back home they were dirt cheap! garlics here r 1 US dollar for 3! expensive!!! but they haf sales every now n then, so i guess we can cut back on other stuff...btw, my mom didnt put on weight, its da camera's fault, adding pounds to her pic, n my bro's almost as tall as me...hmp! oh ya, they haf 200 channels over here, n r currently showing some of da latest movies! cool huh! dis is haven for me. no need to spend $ on pirated vcds anymore!

just saw a show called 'Date My Mom'. a guy has to date 3 moms to select which dawter they wanna go out wif. most of da time, da guys r hunks...2day it was a cute guy, who can sing! a double bonus! da moms would go out, haf fun, tok about their dawters, n hope their dawters get selected. then my mom who was sitting bside me asked if i would ask her to do me dis favour. oh no, puh-leeze, im not dat desperate...i blif my prince charming on a white horse would come riding and sweep me off my feet when da time is rite. cheers!
