My trip back yesterday was a smooth one. I was expecting a long and slow drive back as everyone was taking leave and also rushing back to their hometown.
Got up 5am plus to start our journey as last year we left a bit later and the traffic was heavy and was a pace of average 70km per hour and it took us about 6 hrs where a good smooth trip will usually take about 5 hrs.
Our first stop for breakfast was on of the RnR (rest and recreation) area along the highway.
Food to buy and if you noticed, early in the morning people were already eating rice with dishes to select from.
I was kinda lucky as the traffic was smooth.
Reaching Ipoh for our next RnR stop
This is a new building built next to the highway where the highway user can stop and buy fresh groceries.
Agromall; it is still new and not many stalls slot utilized.
It also has toilet rest area and also a prayer place for the Muslim and a small playground for the children
This is one of my business trip and this time was to New York, USA back in Nov 2009. I had took the opportunity to all travel around the area where I went and take as many photos as I could. Over here are just some of it. This is my first part of USA which I will share; New York.
How’s the flight? It was one of my longest flight ever; KL – Singapore (transit) – Frankfurt (transit) – New York. It was close to 24hrs trip. This is the kind of trip I wish I was on business class but well… no luck then to be upgraded from economy class.
My first transit was in Changi Airport…
… then it was to Frankfurt, arriving at 5am…..
a beautiful sight of the clouds from the window……
Landed in JFK International Airport in the early morning and rented a car to drive to Poughkeepsie which was about an hour to an hour half from New York City. It was suppose to be beginning of winter and I was told that there would be snow but I was lucky and it was nice cool temp. No snow at all.
Below are some of the pictures I managed to capture driving around Poughkeepsie during my weekend there.
Cute scarecrow along the roads.
Stay tune for my 2nd part of my drive around Poughkeepsie.
