Today was probably the most fun I had because I was able to visit the place I was most anticipated about, Times Square. Before all that happened, we went to the Transit Museum, where the history of all the trains in Manhattan happened. It was super fun and interesting to see the trains from mid-1900 to today’s trains develop. I had the best time there, taking a bunch of pictures of me, modeling my transit rides from each period of time. I think the thing I remembered most and was most fascinated by was the development of the transit tickets. It went from some special coins to paper tickets and I was able to see the actual thing!
Next, we head to Flushing, where all went off to the New World Mall. I was once again surprised to see that everything looked just like modern day China. Even all the shops inside the mall was exactly like the malls we walk to in Macau. While I was walking around, I came across the food court and my God, everything looked so good. We all bought so much food, but I got to say the best I had was the Xiao Long Bao, or soup dumpling. I would even say that this was the best Xiao Long Bao I’ve ever eaten in my life and let’s just say that I had quite a lot of these too.
Finally, the thing I was most excited about had come. We all arrived at Times Squares and separated into groups to explore off on our own and we had our free time. Of course, when you’re in Times Squares, who doesn’t shop? Roaming around the busy streets, I went to stores and bought quite a few things until I finally sat down to rest. It was quite exhausting walking so much in a day and I have concluded that going to Times Square once or twice was probably enough for my lifetime.
