Suk Yin (Selina) Chong
One summer, my father came to New York to visit my family. He lived in Hong Kong and had never traveled to a foreign country.
On his birthday I wanted to bring him to the Empire State Building in Midtown. When we took the subway, he was curious because he had never taken a train that ran underground. Then we went to have pizza for lunch and he enjoyed having American food. Afterwards we shopped in the largest department store in the city. He was so surprised that the store was so big.
At last we arrived at the top of the Empire State Building. He was interested in using the telescope to look in different directions. He said New York City was a wonderful place to visit.
My father and I had a happy day. It was an unforgettable memory for both of us.
