I’m Back From My Honeymoon!

By

Yes! Finally, I am back from my 2 weeks honeymoon and I just can’t wait to share with you the adventures I had in USA!

It was surprisingly fun in USA and quite frankly, I didn’t really expect it to be this way.

I always have a fear of traveling too far away as I hate jetlag.

The furthest flight I have taken, was to London, which was many years ago.

The 14 hours flight was horrible and I needed 2 days of sleep to over come the jetlag.

And since then, I have never taken a flight of more than 7 hours until my honeymoon.

But when my wife told me that she wanted to go to the US for our honeymoon, I almost ‘flipped out’.

But after much hesitation, I gave in to her but on one condition.

The condition is that we’ll have to take the “Business Class”… so that I can rest better to fight the jetlag (Since it’s a 20+ hours flight, I fear that it may be worst than going to London).

So we checked in on the 30th April.

And I slept almost through out the whole flight.

When I landed in New York, I felt fine (all thanks to the 10+ hours of sleep that I had).

We checked into the really cool psychedelic hotel in Times Square.

And we spent most of our time visiting the major attraction with a little bit of shopping.

This is my first shot of NYC.

One of the main attractions that I like is the Madam Tussauds.

We don’t have that in Singapore and it’s kind of fun taking photos with all the well know figures.

In fact we took so many pictures that I have specially created a video montage for this.

Here’s the rest of our activities in NYC.

And of course not forgetting the highlight which is the Statue of Liberty.

After spending 4 nights in NYC, we took a 4 hours bus ride to Washington DC to catch up with my buddy Daegan Smith in one of his private workshop.

Picked up a couple of really cool ninja strategies to increase my sales. Will be implementing them over the next few weeks. Let’s see how it goes.

After the workshop, we hopped onto the double decker tour bus and took a day off to sight see.

We visited quite a number of monuments and we took alot of photos.

We went to the White house, Arlington National Cemetery, Jefferson Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Lafayette Square, National World War II Memorial, The Pentagon, Vietnam Veterans Memorial and my favourite Lincoln Memorial (Why is he my favourite… maybe it’s because he is featured in some of my favourite movies like Night In The Museum and Transformers)

Here’s the rest of the photos in Washington DC.

After 3 days in DC, we took a 7 hours flight to LAS VEGAS!

Now this is the fun part.

There are simply too many things to do in Vegas. So many casinos to see, so many places to shop and so many shows to catch.

I just hope that we have more time in Vegas.

We stayed in a hotel call “Treasure Island”. The hotel was pretty okay and it was close to all the main hotel attractions.

The first thing we did was to check out the Premium Outlets there.

We spent a bomb there and in just one day, our total damage was $3000.

We brought so many things that we have to buy a new luggage just to fit all the new purchases in.

Beside the shopping, we also catch 2 shows.

One is the Blue Man Group.

And the other one is the world famous David Copperfield.

I enjoyed David Copperfield performances alot as I didn’t expect him to be so active with the audiences.

He was getting everyone involved in the performances and you can see that all the audiences love it.

And by the way, here’s my favourite shop : Affliction

I love their clothes and we brought 16 items from them.

I just can’t shop enough and I literally had to tell myself to STOP!

Vegas is definitely a place that I will go back for it’s shopping and shows.

I am not really into gambling but I love the shows and performances in the casino.

I would want to be back soon.

Here’s the rest of the fun photos in Vegas.

After Vegas, we rented a car and took a 4 hours drive to Los Angelas, Santa Monica.

It was pretty exciting and scary as this is my first time driving a left hand drive car.

The drive was pretty smooth and easy to LA.

When we are in LA, the first time we did was to visited Hollywood, Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills.

It was quite interesting to see how Hollywood is like.

The next day, we went to Universal Studio Hollywood and we had a lot of fun there.

Luckily their Universal Studio is different from our Singapore version.

I get to see a lot more stuffs that I can’t see in Singapore.

I visited 80% of the attractions and my favourite is the Universal Tour where they bring you around the studios and show you how movies are made.

It was excited and they even try to mimic the movies.

Here’s a scene from the movie ‘Jaws’.

And here’s some of the highlights from our Universal Studio adventures.

Overall… after visiting 4 states (New York, Washington, Las Vegas and Los Angelas), my overall favourite place is Los Angelas, Santa Monica.

It is the combination of the activities in New York and the calmness of Washington.

I totally love this place and our hotel is directly opposite the beach (which add in the cool factor).

Looks like I am going to head back to the US sooner than I expected.

We took an all Business class flight home and we slept throughout the flight.

When I finally arrived home and I login to my Paypal. I saw this amount of commissions waiting for me to withdraw.

Ahhhhh!!!!!!

Life is good!

HOW ABOUT YOU? HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE US AND DO YOU ENJOY IT? OR HAVE YOU BEEN TO ANY GREAT HOLIDAY PLACES THAT YOU WANT TO SHARE? LET ME KNOW BY COMMENTING BELOW.

    Great photos Jaz! I haven’t been to the US but would like to go there, and Asia as well. Going to Singapore in a month which I’m really looking forward to.

    Great travelogue Jaz. Yes NYC remains my favourite city to date. It’s a city where the positive vibe is something I cannot describe in words. I love the morning jog from 53 East to the local Korean deli to pick up b’fast & my favourite New York Times to start the day.
    Ya I agree with you, after visiting Universal in LA,Singapore’s Universal seems to pale in comparison.

  3. Peter says:

    This is cool !!!!

  4. Muhsin says:

    Hi jaz,

    I’ve never been to US.
    I don’t really like traveling far but maybe
    one day I will go to Vegas.:)
    The furthest that I went was to Korea for
    my honeymoon last year.

    Anyway hope you have enough rest to
    conduct your workshop this weekend.:)

  5. Jaz Lai says:

    Good to hear that David. Hope you have a great time!

  6. Jaz Lai says:

    Muhsin,

    My throat wasn’t good at the moment but I will try to rest as much as I can before I see you on Friday.

    I don’t like to travel far as well thats why I go mostly to Asia countries until I don’t know where to go anymore.

    And US was a good experience.

    Hi Jaz, a belated congratulation to your honeymoon. Now then I know the reason why you have to defer the training to this Friday. I trust you still have the stamina to coach for the three days. See you on Friday morning! By the way…does your wife has a name? (huh, huh, huh…)

  12. Hey, Jaz:
    Congratulations on your wedding. I have never heard of anyone going to the US for their honeymoon, but it looks like you had a really great time. Awesome.

    Hi Jaz,

    Welcome back! ^^

    How are the people there? Are they friendly by nature?

    The psychedelic hotel in Times Square looks awesome.

    Best part of all, the commission waiting for you when you are back from your honeymoon. ^^

  15. Kat says:

    Wow, you had a great US trip! so glad you like US. Of course, this is more motivating to get on-line business running. thanks so muchj1

  16. Desmond Ang says:

    Hi Jaz : It must be great to be in the USA for the first time.

    What I like about your blog is when you get home you had $4964.77 USD to withdraw from Paypal. Do you know from yesterday’s Digital life – you can now walk in to Epicentre Wheelock and pay for your favourite Mac stuff thru Paypal.

    Wish one day , I can be like you , go for a long holiday and come back to find lots of money in Paypal waiting for me. That’s what I call Financial Freedom.

  17. Jaz Lai says:

    Lovenus, I had a great time in US. The people there are actually quite friendly and nice. It was good

  18. Jaz Lai says:

    Haha. Peter, my wife is call Regine

  25. Jaz Lai says:

    Desmond, I am sure you can be like me. In fact, you are doing great right now.

    Just need to focus and manage your time properly as there are too many things you have to take care of at the moment.

    I am sure you’ll be there very very soon.
