Say It Loud. Say It Proud

Funny thing was, I really had no idea when to celebrate the chinese new year. All I know was that it was on the month of February. Lol Anyway, I just realized it by the time we got to Chinatown when hundreds of people came to visit the place and started buying dozens of confetti cannons and popping them right off the streets. I was like, oh my God! That’s right! It’s Chinese New Year! Haha!image image image image

Rarelove Jewelry statement necklace

Another one of the many statement necklaces that Rarelove Jewelry has to offer. This one is my actual favorite ‘cuz of its size and the pastel colored stones around it. 

This is why I love statement necklaces so much. They make every outfit look simply well put together without over accessorizing.

image Perfect timing I must say! So lucky that I got to experience my first Chinese New Year outside the Philippines. It was definitely one of the most amazing experiences I had during my visit to NYC. Me and boyfie had so much fun. We’ll never forget the 2 for $5 confetti cannons. hehe!

So about my look… I just literally had to throw anything inside my overnight bag without thinking on what the weather would be like by the time we get to our destination. Hihi! And of course, being the sweatshirt lover that I am, I had to wear this on the second day hoping that it would keep me warm incase the weather drops its temperature. Guess what? Thank God the weather was beautiful, a perfect day to celebrate the New Year!

That’s it for now guys! Hope you enjoyed this blogpost! =)

Read more about my visit to NYC here.

Hello New York!

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. 

imageimageimage 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.

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!

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!

image

The New York Times building is sooo pretty!

The famous New York City yellow cabs! =)

“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. 

image

This is what we had for breakfast. Me and boyfie had 2 hotdogs each! Hehe!

imageimage

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!

image

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!
