NEW YORK 2013 - Residence Inn Marriott @ Holtsville Long Island

So after over 33 years of my life, I have finally gotten the opportunity to visit a city in the East Coast of USA which is New York. Well, as I landed in JFK Airport, the place which I was actually going to stay at is in a small town called Holtsville which is located on Long Island. Its slightly over an hour from Manhattan but as with all US places, its not too difficult to drive there as long as you can read sign boards or follow the GPS instructions.
I stayed at the the Residence Inn Marriott which provides a very spacious living space which is more like a studio apartment. The rooms comes with well equipped facilities such as a kitchen, living area, work & dining table, vanity area as well as a large washroom. Well, do check out the photos and I guess I find myself to be extreme lucky to find that the place was covered in white when I reached, which meant that the place had snow covering most things. A sight to behold. The post will feature mainly photos!

This is one of my favorite shot, frosted ground covers against the rising sunlight

Kampai 99, An affordable Taiwanese dining in Penang

Well, more and more dining outlets continue to crop up in Penang and Kampai 99 is another such outlet and this time, brings a new concept where the food is priced affordably and gives diners a chance to savor many different kinds of freshly cooked meals. I was surprised to see the amount of fresh seafood on display at the front of the store, and among them were yummy looking salmons, cuts of different fishes as well as scallops and other shellfish! There were even live fish tanks and this is something that definitely will appeal to those seeking the freshest options available.
So what makes Kampai 99 different? Its definitely in their pricing scheme where most items are priced at RM9.90 which is actually pretty affordable. Well, they have now been opened for about 2 months now thus its good that things are working out well at this place.
