Let's talk a bit about my trip, shall we? :) Me and BC have been talking about going for a holiday to USA for the longest time and it has never materialise. Finally this year, we managed to block out our calender, apply our leave away from work and book this holiday. Our holiday destination is none other than the popular Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. :) I shall leave you with some of my favourite pictures from this trip for your viewing pleasure.
Morning in downtown LA
MacDonald's egg white mcmuffin. Singapore should have this!
Forest Gump at Madame Tussauds
You cannot miss this view!
Santa Monica Beach
Hoover Dam (taken during helicopter ride to Grand Canyon)
Finally reached Grand Canyon
Las Vegas shopping strip
You cannot miss Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
I have truly enjoyed myself during this trip (except for the 17 hours flight) which gives me butt and back ache. As both me and BC don't drive, we do not have the privilege of renting a car and driving around. We rely mainly on hop on hop off passes and cabs. We have met extremely nice and friendly drivers who gave us tips on where to go to get good deals and also had fair share of terrible drivers who asked for more tips or even gave us a disgusting look when they feel the tips we gave is not good enough. Well, I'm on holiday so who gives a s**t about them, LOL.
I strongly recommending checking out The Cheesecake Factory, IHOP (International House of Pancakes) and Fisherman's Wharf. The food are amazing and the thought of thinking of them just makes me hungry once again.
My only regret from this trip is that our tour to Alcatraz Island was cancelled due to the US government shut down. I was really looking forward to it and dammit..... it was called off. :(
Would I go back again? You bet but probably not until a few years later. My next destination has got to be Europe or London first! :)
