Default Travel to US Part 2

Ok, this is my second time flying to US again. Probably this time, there's less photos (well, so far ). Mainly because I couldn't book any window seats on all my flights.

Anyhow, I will make it up during the wkends when I travel around....

Here are some on Day 1 (24/9/06):

While waiting at McD and having b'fast, I got worried when I saw the line, but later realised that it's the non-Malaysian passport holders, so finished my b'fast slowly


Here are shots of the plane that took me to SFO.




Immigration before the waiting lounge to HK was extra tight.... I had to take off my boots!!!

I thought the Immigration at HK would take extra time, but they had more than enough officers to firstly do a full body patdown/search. Then you had to move on to the next area, where they fully searched all your carry on luggage.

I even saw immigration officers walking into the airplane.... Guess they had to do a through check.

No other shots so far, unbelievable, huh? Was too tired to take anymore Didn't sleep well on both the flights.

More to come later.

Wow..how nice, you're off to SF again, RF. I remember you said the last time you're going to bring your softie along for this trip?

Why can't download and recharge batteries? No charger/adaptor??
Take lots of pics....there should be some good ones to choose from the whole lot, right? Depends a lot on the weather too I guess. The colour of fall (at this time of the year?) should be beautiful.

kris,
Already exchanged email with RF and was told that his softie wouldn't make this trip, so I think RF should be free to "roam". FYI, fall color hasn't started yet!
OT

RF,
Do you plan to rent a car and drive to places yourself? Please email me, if you want the 50% discount coupons to the Six Flags (Magic Mountain) or you intend to wait for your softie on the next trip?
OT

KF,

I will take the famous landmarks and basic facilities....

Kris,

OT's correct, softey(?) didn't follow cause she had other commitments and we're going to holiday in HKong on my way back. She'll meet me there. Also, no fall colours yet, all the same

In the park, I don't think there are power outlets and I don't plan on carrying my laptop(extra weight) as we're hiking from Fri evening till probably Sun afternoon.

OT,

Thanks for the rental and coupons... I wont be needing them this round. Car will be paid by company and I'll probably do the 6 Flags another time. We'll need to pay for our own gas.... Do you have discount coupons for that ?
