Stuff You'll Need to do if You Want to Visit New York City

New York. The Big Apple. NYC. The Empire State. These are just a few of the names and nicknames used to describe one of the world’s most powerful and breath-taking cities. Millions of people live in New York, and many more visit this great city everywhere. There is so much to see and do and experience. In fact, many people might argue that the world is run from New York

It might be somewhere you’ve always wanted to go but never had the chance to do so before now. Well, now is the time to take advantage of that urge and go for a visit to New York. There is so much there for you to experience, and you’re unlikely to be the same afterwards. So here is a collection of ideas and suggestions for things you need to do if you want to visit New York.

Get an Apartment
First up, think about where you’re going to stay. Sure, you could choose to stay in a New York hotel as there are many lovely and luxurious ones. However, you might want to get a more intimate experience by staying in an apartment. Get online and check out HouseTrip NYC and their selection of NYC apartments for rent. These will give you more of New York experience, not to mention the extra space you’re going to have.

Walk the Length of Manhattan
One of the things I would recommend you try to do when you’re there is to walk the length of Manhattan. Take a walk from Harlem all the way down to Soho and the East Village. Sure, it will take you a long time, but it’s really worthwhile to get the full New York experience. You can observe the locals, New York chic fashion, experience Little Italy and marvel at Central Park. This is something that you might only get the chance to do once in your life, so what are you waiting for?!

Go to Central Park
I just mentioned Central Park, but I feel I should talk about it in greater detail. This is one of the must-see hotspots in New York and has become a US cultural icon. The park itself is huge, and there is so much beauty for you to see and experience. Check out the horse and carriage ride that you can take as a couple; it’s very romantic! Central Park needs to be at the top of your list of places to see when you reach New York.

Statue of Liberty
When you think of America, you can’t get a bigger cultural icon than the Statue of Liberty. It is a symbol of our liberty and identity as Americans. And that’s why you should seize the opportunity to go see this amazing tourist attraction. Just remember to book in advance because it is very popular, and you don’t want to risk missing out.

New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world and has so much to offer visitors. So, if you are planning on going there, you need to make sure you get the full New York experience. And that means following the ideas on this post and using them to get the best out of your visit to The Big Apple.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
