Chi-ca-go

chicago, one of the few major cities that people all over the world want to at least set an inch of their foot on, is after all not all heaven and no hell pit...read on, i'll tell ya' on the way...

first thing to keep in mind, never ever ever think about going to chicago during winter...dont even plan about going there either...while the temperature might fall to -7C, however the real temperature is wayyyy colder! my guess? -20C...at least...what does it feel like? try to put a piece of metal in the freezer overnight, and then put it into contact with your cheek...the same pain but not only on the cheek, but all over the body...

the metro bus system here is as expected of the metropolis city...it will get you to wherever you want to go...but the bus driver ain't that friendly...you'll have to rely on google map and gps...

summary:
************************************
Food




JJ Fish & Chicken - great shimp and catfish...awesome fries...worth every penny... 5/5 star



Giordano Chicago-style Pizza - extremely thick pizza...hard to eat, but every ounce of cheese stuffed in those pizza will keep you wanting for more... 4/5 star





KFC near Devon Avenue - the feel of having halal fast food is unexplainable with mere words...when you're in US, you'll understand... 6/5 star

***********************************

Lepak Spots



Downtown Chicago - with a great view of the city and affordable accommodations, downtown is a perfect place to kick-start your chicago-experience...





Sears Tower - formerly known as Sears Tower but now is Willis Tower, this is the tallest building in the world so far...for as low as usd 16, you can have a breathtaking view from the 103rd floor!



Harpo Studio - where oprah makes money $$$



Union Station - the "perhentian pudu" of Chicago...



The Bean - odd bean-shaped work of art...



Navy Pier - IMAX theater, firework display for new year countdown, cheap souvenir shop, and boring mall...



Millenium park - the bean, outdoor ice-skating arena, architectural wonders...
