going up. . .?”
We drove around Chicago downtown in the morning to find this good place for
breakfast when in fact the place had already closed down. . . blame it on our outdated Chicago guidebook! In the end we gave up on breakfast and instead went on to our intended destination of Navy Pier, which is kind of a mixture of shops, attractions and theater by the lake.
The lack of breakfast was over-compensated with lunch at the famous Cheescake Factory where we received big slices of cheesecakes of unforgettable flavors. It was so good that you could just go there and eat the cheesecakes on their own. I love cheesecakes!
pretty little lights. . .
After some attempts of shopping at the Orchard-road-inspired Magnificent Mile, we went on to the top of the Sears Tower to get a feeling of what it meant to be on top of the world. Unfortunately by the time we were up, it was already dark. I would have liked to see the view during the day, especially of the lake, but the grid pattern lights and little dots of cars rolling along the expressways was cool too.
Finally, dinner at Chinatown – a restaurant called Penang. All of us just gobbled down the food because it tasted so much like they were cooked in Singapore and then flown over. Of course the prices are higher here but nobody cared. It was our first return to home when we ate at Penang.
