First trip to downtown Chicago


Jeff organised a trip to downtown Chicago the Sunday after CIM week – some 20 odd Chinese students trotted into Phoenix at Chinatown for push cart dim sum!

We then took a walk starting from Millennium Park all the way to Hancock Tower.

At Millennium Park, we spent some time having fun at the Cloud Gate – see our reflections!

The troupe:

A lot of kids were playing at the Crown Fountain – like in Sg! :p

(We bought instant noodles from Chinatown, heh...)

The walk to Hancock Tower was uneventful and some of us left the group cos we weren’t keen to go up the observatory level.. Sito and I went window shopping for winter gear. The actual shopping would happen the next day, which was Labour Day, when we went to Gurnee Mills with Jeff and Yvette – we bought a lot of clothes! But all wintry stuff; need to buy more regular clothes :p

Anyway, digressing..

After the window shopping, we had dinner with Wenhong who was in town for his e-MBA. The steakhouses were all full so we settled for Mexican :) The portion was manageable so we continued with ice cream at Ghirardelli!

Next we go downtown, we will have Morton’s! :)
