A picture is worth a thousand words. Why don't you guys put some photo too as well.

In case someone dont know how, here's the procedure quoted from I-Qing post:

now for eg if you want to upload ReCom banner to this thread...

right mouse click the banner and click Properties

it will display the address (URL) of the banner or picture..
copy the address and insert it to the following HTML Tag

<.img src=ADDRESS.>

for example Recom banner... the Address is http://recom.homelinux.org:8000/~rec...ges/banner.gif

insert it to this tag

<.img src=.>

becomes like <.img src = http://recom.homelinux.org:8000/~recom/themes/Blue/images/banner.gif.>

There are no dots . before and after < and >.. i put it to disable HTML effect
no space between src = and the address... now try it with your pictures u upload in the gallery...

<img src=http://recom.homelinux.org:8000/~recom/themes/Blue/images/banner.gif>

Here's a recommendation of a photo hosting website: http://photobucket.com

Talking about nice places, I went to New Orleans last Spring Break. I think that that place is extraordinarily eccentric in its own way, and is a good choice for travelling in the USA.

I was there for 4-5 days. I stayed at the Frech quarters. I was expecting to hear people speaking French there but nope, only the road names are in French. Sometimes you can hear people talking to their friends and family in French on telephone, but not on the street.

Nawlins is famous for its European taste in architecture and food too. Cajun food is uniquely New Orleans' original taste. You can get stuff like blackened fish or shrimp, Po Boy sandwiches etc. Try 'em all..they are pretty interesting. For girls, I suggest that you share your food with a friend because their portion is big, big, BIG!

There's this one caf? called Caf? du Monde. They have the best caf? au lait and french doughnut called beignet. Me and my friends, we like to chill there every evening. Like mamak i tell you!

Go for the ghost, voodoo and graveyard tour. Even though it is too clich? and people will definitely recognize you as a tourist, those tours are pretty fun. Since it is the law that French Quarters must remain the same from the outside (you can change ownership and redecorate the inside of the buildings), so every story that they have for you, you can actually see and touch the place..

At night, French Q is as lively too. The famous Bourbon street is pretty scandalous at night. And yes, even if it's not Mardi Gras, you can see girls and boys gone wild once in a while. I dont go to bars so I dont know what it's like there. Should be fun for you guys who do.

For those who seek night life minus the bars, try checking out the House of Blues concert schedule. I was lucky because NERD and Black Eyed Peas were having a show..

Weather there is perfect too. Plus minus 60F (in Spring). It is a bit smelly in and around the French Q. Thanks to the drunk people who vomit and pee at their pleasure.

Even though it sounds like everything is in French Q, you have to venture a little further to see the real people of New Orleans. Big ol european style mansions and caf?s are nice to visit. There's a museum that I went to. If you like museums, you could check that out.

There you go.

^bump

Anyone want to share their experience here? This land is so huge, and so many Malaysian studying in the US, there has got to be something.

p/s: Someday, I would like to make a road trip to the Grand Canyon. If anyone had been there, do share it here.
