Default NYC/Arab Gulf/Malaysia "American Style"

The headline is just a stereotype joke but true but not always true - just wanted to add a disclaimer before a debate gets started! You all might know already that I'm very green to traveling halfway around the world, and didn't factor in travel time, and also hate my job and am using all the vacation time I've accrued so far, which isn't much. And there was a deal. Damn you, Travelzoo!!! With that said, I give you....

THE INCREDIBLE 12 DAY VACATION!!!!!
  • Chinatown Bus to NYC (Dinner with my cousin and crash at her place...)
  • Etihad Flight to UAE
  • Full Day in Abu Dhabi
  • Middle of the Night Flight to Kuala Lumpur, Arrive Mid-day
  • KL All Day
  • Morning in KL, Afternoon Flight to Kota Bharu, Kelantan
  • Kota Bharu
  • KL All Day
  • Singapore Day Trip (Night train there and back...)
  • KL All Day
  • Goodbye KL + Evening in Abu Dhabi Duty Free!!
  • Arrive in NYC and Get Connecting Flight to DC

It's one of those things where it completely dawned on me that I didn't have enough time at all to do everything or just chill and figure it out when I got there. So I decided to see snippets of a few things that seemed interesting to me and within reason.
