A week ago we went to the Big Apple! I, for one actually think I was born to be in New York City. Seriously. It eats me up inside that I am not yet even there living and struggling. That’s not a joke. I want to learn how to independent and even though I kinda am right now, I just want to live like majority of people my age and trying to figure out their purpose in the world. I’ll get there. I just wish that I can be awesome and get to meet the right people when I do.
Lower East Side and Chinatown. This is where my uncle lives and I’d like to say, this is my neighbourhood y’all! I’ll most likely end up in this area when I eventually find a place. I love how affordable stuff are! I even like the vibe of this junction.
Day 2: we went to visit the ONLY Jollibee (a Filipino fast food chain that is ever famous for its chicken and spaghetti) in New York. The people there were unusually warm and welcoming. Or maybe it’s just me. I am made of stone:( We ended up taking the subway to Queens going there and it was quite a long ride! It was raining but nonetheless we ate and we were able to cross that off our checklist. I have to go there again to embrace the vibe of the area. After that we hopped in the train again to go to the Grand Central Terminal. My only reference to that station is the movie Friends With Benefits. Go figure. I loved seeing people constantly take photos of the whole place. There wasn’t really much to see but the feel that you’re there is definitely a life goal come true.
Day 3: We went to Central Park! Gloomy weather but definitely better than our Queens trip. Here we saw that one place we always see in the movies, that long trail where people walk and there were green benches on the side. Yeah that. We also discovered that area in The Avengers movie, the one with the fountain downstairs! Very cool! There was some sort of a performance from a group of guys, they made everyone laugh and kinda scared afterwards because they mocked themselves and people actually slowly believed them. I won’t elaborate.
Times Square! I knew I had to go back here again and take the perfect photo. But sadly that didn’t quite happen! It was too crowded and there were construction going on and stuff. Nevertheless, I got to see it again and it felt all too real (again). God I would love to work here.
Some cool stuff I saw along the way. I’m a chronic sightseer and I just like to take anything colorful and interesting. SoHo is the place to be for fashion & arts people (I’d like to believe I fall in that category). I walked in that area and I didn’t want to leave! It was everything! This graffiti on the 4th panel was from a wall in Little Tokyo (that place actually exists!), it was really cool. The sticker wall was from an organic food store, I just really had to take a photo.
So there you have it! I actually have a lot more photos but I’m afraid I’m taking too much space up! Of course your time too. I could go on and on but there’s a limit to that. I have another NYC-related blog entry involving a Golden Globe winner that I met on my last day staying there. Sounds cool right? YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
