Had a blast with boyfie last week on our road trip to New York. We got there around 10 in the morning and headed straight to see Lady Liberty. We actually picked the perfect day to arrive in New York. The sun was out, clear skies. Perfect time to do a short day tour.
The ferry heading to the Statue of Liberty had to stop by a nearby island called Ellis Island which was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States. It was used as an immigrant inspection station from 1892 to 1954.
Old suitcases displayed inside the Ellis Island Immigration Musuem.
Spotted a bunch or girls in their wedding gowns. They all look so cute!
Statue of Liberty during sunset. Beautiful!
Anyone who visits New York should never miss a chance to try out their local food carts. You can find them at almost every corner on every street in times square.
One of the best food cart meals I have ever had.
I took so many photos I don’t know which one to share to you guys! I can’t just pick one.. Hehe!
The famous red steps on Times Square.
Oh yeah, Cake Boss! Not really a fan of cakes for dessert but their cheesecakes were uh-mazing!
Now who would want to eat these? Look at it! It looks too good to be eaten. Hehe!
On the 102nd floor observation deck of the Empire State Building!
This was on our last day in New York since we got lucky the sky cleared out after 2 days of non-stop raining so we decided to visit the Empire State Building.
Uh! So beautiful I almost cried!
The New York Times building is sooo pretty!
The famous New York City yellow cabs! =)
At the Rockefeller Center.
“Fools Rush In” starring Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry is one of my old favorite movies and that’s where I first heard about Gray’s Papaya hotdogs.
This is what we had for breakfast. Me and boyfie had 2 hotdogs each! Hehe!
A whole wall of colorful M&M chocolates!
And of course, Serendipity 3. Hehe! You know what’s funny? We actually saw Serendipity 3 in Las Vegas but I told boyfie that I really have to try the one in New York where the actual film was shot. Haha!
Yes, I’m a sucker for chick flicks! Hehe!
By the time the waiter approached our table and asked what we would like to have he was already suggesting that we order the Frozen Hot Chocolate which was obviously what they are famous for.
It was so good! No wonder people line up outside just to get tables.
A miniature Lego replica of the Rockefeller Center! So cute! I even saw Darth Vader playing golf on the roof top. Haha!
So that wraps up this blog post. New York has always been one of my dream destinations since I was little. I literally cried when I first saw Times Square. I was having a hard time taking it all in. That I am finally right in front of something I have only seen in the movies. Haha!
Okay, I’m starting to sound like a loser. Lol
Have a great week guys! Mwah!
