Over Canada’s Northern Territory now

Image

So far had 2 meals and a snack. After take off from Singapore we were served dinner

Salmon salad
Image

Braised beef with rice
Image

Chocolate cake
Image

Then it was time to sleep. I think I did 6 hours, nice to be on a flat bed. When woke up was served a satay snack the peanut sauce was really good
Image

After more than an hour we were served our second meal

Starter is tuna
Image

Seafood beehoon
Image

The beehoon May look normal but it’s rather flavorful while the shrimp paste chili sauce were a perfect match
Image

Ended up with a very nice pudding and cheeses
Image

Mildly sweet pudding perfect for me

So I finally arrived Newark Airport yesterday (Wednesday) at 5.30am

Immigration was a breeze took us less than 5min from queueing to exiting to get our luggage.

Luggage trolley is rather expensive at US$6 and then it was the taxi to take us to the hotel and it costs $95 arriving in the hotel just before 7am. Check-in time was 4pm so we went for a walk around the hotel area had breakfast at McDonalds

Went to the hotel at 9.30am to hang around. The night before the hotel was fully booked so we have to wait for check-outs and cleaning. I asked the hotel manager about car rental he told be there's one just next street at 25th Street a mere 5mins walk.

Was delighted to sort out my car rental on the spot. First is checking my driving license (Singapore and Thai) the staff told me its good both licenses could be use. Staff also told me car is good to drive into Canada and back just need to show the rental agreement. Also insurance is good for both US and Canada so no need anything extra. Total cost of the 10 days rental (including top insurance) was only US$1100, shockingly cheap. So I am basically all set for the trip. Will start driving on Saturday.

Very lucky also at 10.20am staff gave us the room key cards as a room was ready. Didn't go out as we slept in the hotel room till 8pm.

Looks great, I was only in NYC a couple of times, in January 1999 and July 2004. Loved it there.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
