    try to take Cathay.. you wont want to take a crappy airline to go such a faraway place.. im talking about more than 20 hrs of flight!

    not a place to shop but defintely to chill out and great sightseeing. happy holiday!
    I've decided on China Airlines, cheap lah, no choice. Lay over at Taipei for one night so it isnt straight flight anyway, wont be that horrible. I've taken China Airlines to Taipei before, it wasnt that bad

    Yes, its 15hrs diff.. I always have hard time chatting with friend over there on msn

    Vancouver is one of the nice small city to hang out, especially out around Robson/West End at night.

    No, it's not like Orchard, nothing like it in Singapore.

    Why do you want to go half way around the world and go to places just like home? Might as well stay home then?

    well not sayin is the same.. I am just saying it as a reference.. as robson is the downtown area of Vancouver and is one of the most busiest streets in vanvouer... so I say its similar to orchard...well.. don't want to start an argument for this topic lah... maybe I am the one that is wrong..

    Cheers

    Btw, Thanks for the comments you gave me on my post... I really appreciate them

    Robson is one of those street, you can feel life flowing through.

    Not wanting to argue, but I really really do not like Richmond

    I stayed in Richmond during my last trip 2 years ago. Can't really get used to it especially since I don't speak Cantonese.

    As for downtown Vancouver... can hardly remember what it's like liao. The last time I was in the city was in 1994. *sigh*

    Planning for any trip isn't easy. But I had my fun creating my own itinerary for my Cambodia trip earlier this year. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Now, I'm stretching my mind to plan my self-drive tour with a GPS, Mapsource and a handful of guide books. Looking forward to the implementation phase. It seems like Jas has a friend there, so she'll probably have her trip well-planned by a local. Lucky.

    Long to back for wintering, may be next Jan. Have you check Eva ? Transit times is about 6-8 hrs with meal coupon. Used to be S$1550 inclusive tax.

    Whistler's BlackComb is nice to hike.

    Seattle, where Starbuck at every corners.
