Long Island

Colder day than the day before. Sunny and around 50°F. Went to Long Island to continue visiting geocaches around Yaphank, Middle Island, and Ridge, after first finishing a few new geocaches that got listed since the last weekend. Because of the time change, I woke up an hour earlier so that I would still have the same amount of geocaching time before sunset. In other words, I made no change in my sleep/wake schedule and it would've been simpler not to adjust my clocks until Monday.

Anyway, everything went smoothly, although I still found myself running short of time towards the end. I rushed through the three caches at Prosser Pines so that I could be out of there before dusk. Only the last cache, at "Kee Pout Park" (I hear it's French :) ), was found in the dark. Then I headed back west to Flushing Chinatown.

Because dusk was so early, I had time to do some shopping in Flushing before dinner. So I walked around looking at all the various stores and mini-malls within stores. As I was wandering around, I came across two Malaysian restaurants on 40th Road between Main St. and Prince St. I'd never seen these before so I figured I'd try one on this trip and the other on my next trip to Flushing. The one I went to this time was Restorant Malaysia Inc, which is a rather generic name for a Malaysian restaurant. It's a hole-in-the-wall place, narrow and packed. I checked their menu and prices are around 20% lower than Sentosa. Their cooking style is different though. It's more like a Chinese interpretation of Malaysian food. I had satay chicken and nasi lemak.
