Hello DINOSAURS! Washington D.C

Jaime drove us to Washington D.C again and this time, to visit the National Museum of Natural History where there are dinosaur fossils and many historic. She wasn’t familiar with the direction to the museum. Connor who was also in the car sensed that and asked his mum if she had lost her way. He couldn’t join us for the museum tour as Frank wasn’t free that day and he wanted to capture the excitements of Connor’s first sight at dinosaur exhibits. So we had to tell a little lie to Connor as he kept asking if we were going to see dinosaurs.

Shopping Spree in Virginia Outlets!

For the last three days, we were crazily shopping at the nearby Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets (or factory outlets, er… not like Singapore Factory Outlet hor =P). The famous brands were cheap and nice! We bought from Polo Ralph Lauren, Nike, DKNY, Coach, Esprit, Levi’s, Timberland…couldn’t recall more.

We also went to Tyson’s Corner Center, the largest mall in the D.C. area. I exchanged my Coach bag for a different model after I realised that I was not used to hand-carry bag. No question asked and their customer service was so good. We bought many chocolates from Godiva and they were a lot cheaper than those in Singapore too!

And we love the big and yummy cheese cakes at The Cheesecake Factory!

Leaving USA back to Singapore

We woke up at 4:00am and Jamie drove us to Reagan National Airport for the 6:30am flight. We had to fly back to Orlando International Airport because in our tour package, our last destination was Orlando and the return date was extended but the departing airport remained the same. From Orlando, we flew to Newark Airport again, then to Detroit Airport and crossed the Pacific Ocean, the world’s largest ocean, to Narita Airport in Japan. All in all, we took eight flights to and fro between Singapore and the U.S.

At Orlando International Airport – The “Disney Airport”.
