i'm back like finally and there's only 1 thing, i'm really sick of plane rides. u know we took like 7 planes just based on this trip. 3 to new york JFK airport, 1 from JFK to bufflao and 3 from bufflao to monterey.Places we stopover include washington D.C, atlanta and salt lake city. When we reached NYC, it was pretty cold. we took the subway somewhere near the airport and i can say that it's duper noisy, mrt is still the best. ya.. there's 1 impt thing, the elevator. As eldon and clara tend to sit in their strollers due to the intensive walking,we need to use it. it's super duper ultra smelly!!!!!!!! wat's the worst thing, the elevator in every subway station smells the same! okay, enough of that, i'm puking soon! anyway, for the first day, we went to the empire state building where king kong hung onto it,remember? hmmm.. we went to new york public library too cos it's really pretty like those greek buildings... the m&m and the hersheys store was splendid but i didn't buy any chocolates cos it was way too ex. new york is indeed a vibrant city, especially the awesome lightings.
