A brief post about Spring Break New York

Haha... I know this was ages ago, but here's my day two trip of my favorite city.

I took this picture at 6.30 in the morning before brushing my teeth and getting ready for the day. Manhattan city... owhhlala...

First stop was the famous Ellis Island that we learned so much about in American Studies during the ADTP days at Sunway University.
We passed by the Liberty Island on the way to Ellis Island but we didn't make a stop there since we can't go up the statue anymore.

Here's Ellis Island where all the immigrants from all over the world came over to the United States.

In the halls where thousands of people lined up to get into the country.

The old glass frames that I can imagine people peeking through just to see how the city looks like back then.

Crystal and I with the bunk beds behind us.
I just can't imagine after spending weeks in a ship, just when the immigrants think that they can get on with their lives, they're stuck here in the immigration waiting and waiting, and waiting....
People those days really do live through hard lives.

Information on Ellis Island.

The Star Spangled Banner

With faces of the immigrants behind.
Up to this day, many still go back to Ellis Island to trace the roots of their ancestors to see if they passed through the Island.

Next stop, a very ugly picture of me at over looking Ground Zero (use to be Twin Tower) at the Financial Trade Centre.
Can't believe I was so close to it. What if 911 happened right when I was there taking the picture? Gosh, so creepy.

I kinda think our Malaysian Pavilion was inspired by the Financial Trade Centre because they had almost the same architecture, including the big step area.
Don't have a picture of it though...

But I have a picture of this......



After touring around the area, we grabbed dinner and watched Lion King the Musical!

So excited!
My first Broadway Musical

Day Three at the city.
It was our only free day and it was probably the best day too.
We got the chance to take our own time to explore the inner parts of the city.


First stop.

Never had the chance to see anything like that.
Gosh, it was more like public pornography.
I kinda felt embarrassed watching different varieties of 'educational sex' in front of everyone else.
There were different videos play at every booth, from lesbian sex, to gay sex, to revolutionary movie scenes, to etc.

Nuff said? :)

Most of our time was spent shopping in Chinatown, and my very satisfying 30$ haircut.
Here's Crystal, Lynn and I at a Malaysian, Singaporean Restaurant.
O Chein, Laksa, owhmigosh..... closest to home food, especially when I'm not going back this year.

We camwhored a LOT.
Bel's supermodel picture.

In front of a small cathedral.

I thought this picture was funny.
Everyone was camwhoring, and everyone was taking the picture when one person was comwhoring.
This was a candid picture. I swear.

ehe... *shy*

Lagi shy :)

My obnoxious crazzy sister
I love you!

We had the famous John's New York style pizza.
*love it*


Finally, the Donkey Show is done and over with. (that's why I have more time to blog now)
But, more auditions to come.
Back to memorizing.

Stay tuned!
