Happy halloween everyone! hope u guys had a great one.i spent mine in bed feeling all sick from all the puking and diarrhoea 😦

Image

i headed to chelsea market again to try out the lobster. apparently, this lobster craze has become a “must do” for the crew.but it turned out nothing fantastic , just steamed lobster at an affordable price.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

since we are at chelsea market. i brought them to high line. my second time to high line, i realize that views are much better in summer compare to  the winter season.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I made a trip down to central park this time round. LOL. Like finally. it is within walking distance from my hotel and yet i just wasn’t motivated to head there in the past. oh well, it is a nice huge park right in the middle of the city.we did not managed to cover the entire park cause the weather is just so freaking hot. i think i looked a shade darker now!

Image

Image

it is quite a rare sight for me to see so many people suntanning in a park and not by the beach!

Image

Headed to central park with lindy!

Image

Image

Image

So relaxing isn’t it???

Image

Image

i just cannot resist having the ice cream in such hot weather in new york. Even though it cost me freaking USD$4 for a cone ice cream. wth.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

then we settled down at a nice small cafe , had our lunch and people watch. these are moments where i love my job!

Image

maybe my next trip to new york i will do a post on soho… it seems like the place has transformed to a even better shopping paradise.LOL.

i just came back from new york this morning, but i just can’t wait to edit those pictures i took of chelsea market and high line park. So without heading to bed yet, i settled on my bed and started editing those photos and now i am done editing them. So here are the pictures.. 🙂

Image

Image

Despite my countless time to new york. i have never been to chelsea market. the place is so nicely done up and is filled with food outlets mostly bakery and seafood.apparently the seafood there is pretty good, i will give it a try some other day. 🙂

Image

there are some shops there that sells some pretty cool picnic stuff.so tempting to buy them!!Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We “ta bao” some sandwiches and drinks before we head to High line park. we wanted to relax one corner at the park and eat our sandwiches under the sun and with beautiful sights around! Life cannot get any better than that huh!

Image

Like i said earlier on my previous post, High line park is an elevated park built on old train tracks starts from around 14st all the way till 30st. we started our walk from 14st ….

Image

Image

Water!!

Image

then we saw this guy selling ” American style ice kachang.” LOL. it is actually shaved ice with fruit syrup. it is quite a rare sight cause the guy is shaving the ice manually without machines! Many people actually stopped to take a look at what he was doing.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The place has got some interesting art installation and designer buildings along the way that makes the whole walk so interesting and fun to visit!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Nice building huh?

Image

Image

Then the search for the plant of the week. LOL. and we found it!

Image

A permanent naked poster guy waving at us from inside one of the building! remember to watch out for these fun installation along the way! LOL.

Image

And they build a high line zoo at the backyard? hahaa.so funny!

Image

Image

then we settled down at one of the benches to have our sandwiches!

Image

Image

I really enjoyed the walk with zenn. the sights are so interesting- a combination of nature, arts and architecture. Maybe singapore should do something like this at the KTM railway tracks. 🙂

Hope u all enjoyed the shots as much as i do… Next post probably will be on my trip to central park  with lindy! 🙂

alright time for me to sleep after an 18hrs flight. good night all.

omg. i went to High line park yesterday( Thanks to zenn for bringing me to such a nice place), the sights were amazing along the way.

The High Line is a public park built on an old rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. They are pretty awesome to come out with such an idea, i enjoyed taking the walk there. if u are in New York do give that place a visit, u will love it! i did and i think i will be back there again ( cause according to zenn who has been there quite a few times, said the place looked different when she went at different time of the year).

i jus can’t wait to share the shots here, so this is just a preview. more photos will be uploaded once i am done editing them. LOL.

Image

headed to Alice ‘s Tea cup 2-3weeks back in new york, walked a couple of streets from our hotel and we could get to one of the Alice’s Tea cup outlet. Had higher expectation of the place since almost every crew had been there except me.hahaha… the interior was a little average ,not what i would have expected but the buttermilk scones were great though!

Image

Image

Image

Image

they had a really wide selection of Teas. a whole list to choose from. i had the ALice’s Tea. pretty good.
