The most intriguing city ever also had the most diverse and delicious food ever. All I did was eat and site see the entire time. When I was eating at one spot, I would already start thinking of the next spot to eat at, no lie. Walked about 20 miles each day and still managed to pack on some pounds!

First off, I have to rave about Ladurée in upper east side. I’ve tried so many macarons from all over the country and I just couldn’t fathom why everyone liked it so much. That was until I had the most delightful and delectable macarons at Ladurée which is the only one in the U.S. Their macarons are flown in straight from Paris and made such an impression on me, especially the pistachio ones!

Another winner from my amazing trip had to be the Pork Belly Buns from Ippudo. This is a very popular ramen place in East village and the line was already 100 deep before the place even opened. We were so lucky to be the last table seated before the place was maxed out at the time of opening. The ramen was delicious but had I just ate the pork belly buns alone, I would’ve been just fine.

Finally, one last 5 star rating goes to The Halal Guys. This food truck stays busy at all hours of the day and they do not disappoint. Not only do they serve delicious chicken over rice with CRACK sauce (famous white sauce), but the portions are very generous and the price was the cheapest meal I had in NYC. Their hot sauce was very deceiving (but still good) - eat at your own risk!

I have completely fallen in love with New York. Weird for me to say that because I never really wanted to go there or live there. I guess at this point in my life, a city like New York is exactly what I needed to experience. It was unlike any other city I’ve been to. It may sound ridiculous but I was so proud when I took the subway alone and hailed a cab all by myself. Coming from a small town gal, that’s pretty big! Haha

The people are surprisingly nice even though a lot of people I met there wasn’t originally from there.

Food was amazing but we shall get to that in the next post.

City views were amazing, breathtaking, extraordinary… Nothing like it.

These are just a few photos opps during this past weekend’s NYC “friendcation.”

TUMBLR FAMILY: 

PLEASE, stop what you are doing and pray for my beautiful friend Valerie Hutauruk. She is currently battling cancer and has been in the intensive care unit on a ventilator. She is only 24 years old. She still has the rest of her life to live and I’m asking- no begging all of you out there to spread the word and pray for her and her family. They mean so much to me. 

If you have a Facebook, she has a community page named PRAYERS 4 VAL. LIKE IT, SHARE IT, and SPREAD THE WORD. She will come out VICTORIOUS!

Los Angeles is such a different world to me. I’ve been there probably a hand full of times and yet I feel like I barely experienced an ounce of all that’s out there. “Milk” on Melrose has become a tradition for me, more so because my lovely friends like to bulk me up with their amazing desserts (my favorite is the macaron ice cream sandwiches and blue velvet cake).

Following the pictures from Milk is pretty much the happy hour menu from Yard House. I LOVEEEE their truffle fries.

A well-known habit of mine is that I stop and say “hi” and pet every dog I see because I absolutely adore them (I have a beautiful, spoiled French bulldog named Zoey). The dog picture above was as big as me and almost intimidating looking but such a softy at heart. He was leaning against me like he knew me, which made me miss Zoey even more because she does that all the time.

Ah~, yes and of course the famous “Urban Lights,” at LACMA. My friend JG captured this shot with his new fish eye lens. I can only hope I become half as good as him when it comes to photography.

And finally, FROSTY’S. This lovely piece of work is Italian ice with custard ice cream. My friends told me this was one of their favorite spots so I just had to try it out for myself. It was BOMB.
