First destination : Elis Island/Statue of Liberty Ground Zero

Trying to figure out how to use Subway is interesting and confusing. But somehow from Penn Station, we ended up in World Trade Center.

Looking for Ground Zero

Some artsy stuff in the middle of the city

Found it! But didn’t wanna pay to get in. Don’t wanna waste money. I’ve seen the tribute online.

The first destination made me realized that lots of Italians and Swedish comes to NYC for holiday.

2nd Destination : Elis Island/Statue of Liberty

Finally, we figured how to use Subway. We traveled Downtown to South Ferry to hop on a ferry to Elis Island and see that girl. Unfortunately…NY 012

The q was too long and i don’t like wasting time. So we took the more expensive one and doesn’t let you get down to Elis Island. Why not? Haha..

3rd Destination : Canal St

In the search for Malaysian food, we went to Canal St. We were looking for this Restaurant called Nyonya at Grand St. But couldn’t find it, until we’re gonna die of hunger, we found another Malaysian restaurant.

NY 075

Canal St is actually Chinatown, like Petaling St in KL. The whole street sells fake bags and perfumes.. Exactly like Petaling St.

This is one of the coolest thing in Chinatown.

And i found something for Christine!

Visiting the city made me feel like a JB-ian visiting Singapore..

I kinda like New York. It’s an amazing place, such a small place, with so many population, compact and underground compact too.. And i am having sore throat too. Hope it’s not Swine Flu/Cough.
