Journal Entry: Wed Aug 27, 2014, 6:24 AM



(10 sept '14 EDIT: OOOHHH FUUCCK U PHOTOBUCKET I AM LEAVING YOUR ASS)

BOY WHAT A TRIP. it was a first for me, being in the US! AND GOLLY, NY! HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT IT, ALL OVER IN THE MOVIES, MEDIA, NY NY, BIG APPLE, CONCRETE JUNGLE..... and well maybe London and Tokyo (other city states in various parts of the world) kinda spoiled it for me, lol, but i found New York just okay. probably just isn't to my taste. I ALSO BLAME IT ON THE SEASON LOL whenever im on holiday in another country's summer, ITS JUST UGGHH i put up with summer 365 days a year already, so a vacation doesn't feel like a vacation when the temperature barely changes after 20+ hrs of travel time Llama Emoji-08 (Crying) [V1] ALSO, I GOT THE STRANGEST TUMMY ACHE FOR DAYS after eating a trippy, over-priced ice cream from one of those ice cream vans (why dont ppl put prices on the stuff man, how i know u not charging me extra). IT SUCKED cuz i couldn't even sit up right in the mornings but ok it was bearable for the most part and i was fine after like 3 days!

ANYWAYS here's kinda a summary of the whole thing! (excluding Boston and Canada CUZ IM CLOSE TO 200 PHOTOS IN THIS JOURNAL IM TRYIN TO CUT DOWN) There will be a second part later on, i promise!!

New york trip

woohoo!! THIS JOURNAL EVEN BEATS MY 9-DAY JAPAN TRIP ONE IN TERMS OF LENGTH so look out!
i already made the pics really small so that it won't kill any unsuspecting browsers >.< (/PRAYS FOR YOUR INTERNETS)

the BEST PAINTING x 3!!! IN BLACK FRAMES!! WHICH MAKES THE BEAUTY STAND OUT EVEN MORESO


first colorful thing i saw!! it was really pretty but as always i never understand the significance (/DOES NOT READ ARTIST DESCRIPTION GASSSPPPP SHOOCCKK)


GO ON. STARE AT THE THING AND ACT LIKE U GET IT
lol she probably did get it, i duno.


i didn't bother trying to find the hole
IS THERE EVEN A HOLE OR IS THE ARTIST JUST TROLLING


OOOOOOO FAAAMMMOOOUUUSSSS again


mother father SUPERSTAR of the museum!! BUT NOT as big of a superstar as the mona lisa is in the Lourve (that crowd was INSANE) BUT JUST LIKE THE MONA LISA I DIDNT THINK IT'D BE THAT SMALL AHAHAHAA


I DIDNT SEE THE FACE AT FIRST /SCREAMS


i hope this is an earnest spelling error upon what is clearly a broken WINDOW but hey maybe it IS widow and this is some deep shit i never considered.


a colorful something again before we leave MoMA!!

so we walked down another way back to the hotel towards the NY public library~


(NOT FROM THE PUBLIC LIBRARY BUT)
PERFECT BOOK FOR THE STRANGE N ROOD ICE CREAM DUDE WHO SOLD ME SOME BAD ICE


BABY U SO NICE N COOL WHY U GOTTA DO THAT TO MY GUT.


Bryant paaarrrkk which was so pretty and bright and DAMMNN people actually sitting and playing in parks and doing work and chilling n stuff!!
the weather was so good during our first few days in NY!!


AND DAAAAYYUUUMMMM :la:
WHY SO PERF. in the middle of the park is this shelf filled w books to read and i just :heart:


why don't we have shit like this in sg?? OH WAIT YEA WE CAN'T EXACTLY TRUST THE KIND OF PEOPLE IN PUBLIC ANYMORE SO.


ACTUALLY in the NY public lib which has fantastic architecture inside and out but i am trying to save space by not posting the photos lol!!


OKAY I WILL POST A FEW PHOTOS


THIS IS LIKE HOGWARTS OR SOMETHING, YO.


/CUE ANGELS SINGING


There was also that children's book exhibition thing on the ground floor that i went to check out...

I FEEL U MAX.


I KINDA CAME TO THE PUBLIC LIB FOR THIS AHAHAHAA

GAAA PIGLEETTTT <3


old b/w photos always creep me out no matter what the context!!


AND LASTLY, ONE OF MY FAV CHILDHOOD STORY BOOKS GAAAA :heart:


So we continued walking!! actually, it was kinda nearby (i think) so we headed here first to check out grand central terminal.


THATS THE SCENE IN THAT MOVIE WHAT WAS THAT MOVIE OH WAIT EVERY MOVIE HAA


LINE EM UP. actually, the firemen in NY are WAAY WAAAAYYYYY HOTTER than the police (JUST A CASUAL OBSERVATION)
too bad i didnt get a good pic of actual firemen (I WAS ACTUALLY JUST EMBARRASSED CUZ i was so close to em)

well i think after this we trudged back to the hotel to pass out and wake up to the next day!!


TBH I DONT QUITE SEE THE COOLNESS OF ALL THIS TIMES SQUARE BUSINESS


we had lunch at this cool place called Ruby Tuesday and was served by the cutest gay waiter
ITS FUNNY CUZ IN NY all the exteriors look so simple and like ehh BUT WHEN U GO INSIDE EVERYWHERE ITS A WHOLE DIFF STORY i kinda like that abt NY!! (at ruby tues we were guided to an upstairs section which was way bigger n we couldnt even tell it was there from the outside)


THEN WALK WALK WALK 325672 STREETS TO CENTRAL PARK WHEEE GREENERY
ITS LIKE A LIL CITY ON ITS OWN LIKE WHHHYYY DID THEY MAKE A PARK SO BIG IN THE FIRST PLACE??


HORSSSEEE /FOAMS


the greenery is so fresh and lush and just kinda well-kempt!!
it must take one hell of a gardener team to keep this place in shape!


and like EVERYONE was crowded around this shit taking photos with it (we came on a weekend too), its a damn miracle i even got this pic without humans.


also, there were some good singers doin the Beatles everywhere here


/i am a good photographer i say to myself w a tear in my eye


SHAKESPEAR GARDEN WHHHEEE i didnt know what to expect i just wanted to check out some place that was named after a famous dude.


the EVERYTHING was pretty! very quaint and picturesque at every corner!


and also, little quotes hidden all over from the books.


ITS LIKE SOMETHING FROM A DREAM, I TELL U.


uughhhh /cries at all the quotes i dun even know why i nv even read the books


I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING
CUZ IT'S WHAT IM THINKING TOO.


1, 2... FAAAAMMOOOUUUUSSSS
yea i trekked all the way in here just to get a nice shot!


Hans Christian Anderson thingie.


And duck.


Went to the Natural History exit from the Park! Y'ALL NOT AFRAID SOME KIDS R GONNA PLAY W THIS AT ALL??


SQUIRREL :heart: /SCREAMS


AND YAAYY atraction for the day is Natural History Museum where i actually got pretty excited cuz i have a thing for BONES and just extinct things in general.


some of these bones are so clean n smooth it MAKES ME DOUBT STUFF


huuurrrr. the place had bad lighting so a lot of my shots actually came out weird and blurred..sigh.


POKEMONS EXISTED THIS IS PROOOOOFFFF


and they had another section in the museum w cute stuff like these! I LIKE IT when people display flora and fauna cutely (LOL i duno)


I LIKE DEAD MUSHROOMS.


OOHHH I'D LIKE THESE ON MY WALL. (except the stinky flower)


HARUS!!


AND A BIG ASS MAKOTO!!!!


ALSO, A RIN huurrrr.
if u don't watch free! you're probably like whuuuut.

EXIT the museummmm!! and yea we took the metro back (pic above is from the subway at natural history) where we almost got cheated by some dude at the ticketing machine selling people metro tickets for EIGHT DOLLARRRSSS. YO if i had to pay $8 for a single ride ticket it better take me to freakin KONOHA or some shit.


TIMESKIP NEXT DAY~! we ate macs for breakfast twice cuz WIIIFFFIIII
and the place was kinda cool.


Nearby the hotel, too! MAYBE THIS PLACE WAS LIKE A BIG THING BACK IN THE OLD DAYS but i am sorely disappointed w this dept store!! OVERPRICED SHHIIIITTT and the stuff is not even nice, yo. if you're sgporean this is like...OG. seriously.


FIRST CHINESE DINNER IN NY HAHHAA actually we just wanted to see how they cook asian food.
verdict.....THIS IS A FKING DISGRACE WHAT DID I JUST EAT lol. but errrr EDIBLE, i suppose. AND THEY GAVE US A HEEELLL LOT too so we gave like half of everything to some homeless people I HOPE IT MADE THEIR NIGHT YEA even tho it really isnt the best chinese food u can get here.. oTL;;


I DIDNT GO SEE STATUE OF LIBERTY CUZ SRSLY WHY WOULD I IT'S JUST A STATUE IN EVERY FREAKIN MOVIE EVER.


RAANNDDOOOMMMM at F21! and i did buy it in the end!
i DUNO WHY I AM BECOMING SOME FLORA FAUNA ACTIVIST HERE but i suddenly have a liking for the flowery stuffs.


OH THERE IT IS. the channel that no one watches anymore.


WAHAHAA IT'S PRET.


UMM i guess it's just the major walking around on foot a lot but i found i could eat a lot more than i thought possible lol.


/DESPERATELY BUYS FRUITS TO SHIT BETTER AT NIGHT.


True!

After lunch we were gonna meet my aunt and her bf to walk around and so that they could drive us all to Boston and then Montreal woot~
but before that i did some last minute browsing at Urban Outfitters!! I ACTUALLY RLY LIKE THE PLACE i want one so badly in sg!! (not for the clothes but the funky stuff they have)


I DUNO, i got this to give to friends cuz i thought it was so......LITERAL.


frighteningly expensive and useless merch!!


some actual useful merch!


oh i actually took this pic to serve as like a footer for this journal but now i think it looks stupid out of context ahahahaa


OOHHH SO PRETTY there's so many pretty places in NY i just wish i had the time to SIT AND TAKE IN THE AIIIIRRRR


A GIFT PERFECT FOR AN ASSHOLE LIKE ME.


i will fill my rooms one day w cute plants in cute pots like this i swear.


niiiccceeeee i just kinda forgot what these were.


i went out by myself for a bit to explore the more errr neighborhood-ish areas i guess.
and...OMG.


YAAYYY FRESH PUPPIIIEESSSS :heart:


LITTLE RASCALS!! a BIG BURLY MAN also came up to this window at the same time and we were like cooing together lol it was weird.
 the people who worked here were so friendly n sweet!
which is great cuz u need GOOD PEOPLE to look after these innocent little things!!


AND I FOUND A POOCH WHO LOOKS LIKE MY POOCH!! :heart:


Alrighttttyyyy!! on the way back to meet my aunt and i found a cool tea place!
this one is HIBISCUS GINGER TEA it is overpriced but amazing.


From here, we were walking to West Village!! saw some rad, expensive apartments along the way.


ALSO SAW THIS AHAHAHAA AND I DID NOT EXPECT TO SEE THIS HERE i actually didn't even know it was in NY AHAHAHAA
Flat iron building!!


there are some seriously beautiful shops around here, just NO TIME TO SEE THEM ALL.


AND NO MEANS TO BUY STUFF LIKE THIS BACK.


ALONG THE WAY WAS THE FARMERS MARKET GYYAAAHHHH i always wanted to visit a farmer's market gosh i duno, IT JUST SOUNDS COOL and i expected some fancy fruits.


common fruits but oddly shaped!


TEH COLORSSS /spazz


SO PRETTYYYY i wanted the dry flowers but ugghh i will probably be detained at the airport or smth cuz MAYBE LAVENDERS CARRY SOME RARE STRING OF DISEASE WHO KNOWS.


not that cheap, though! considering this came straight off the farm.


PUURRTTYYYY COLOORRSSS.


aahahhahaa YEA i had to.


FANCCYYYY. EXPENSSSYYYY.


THIS IS CLEARLY THE MOST AWESOME THING EVER.
marshmellow chocolate pizza. how did someone manage to fit 3 of my fav things into one food.


still on the way to Greenwich!! or was it west village..oh wait are those the same things. ahhh /forgets everything


i didnt manage to explore like every little shop here which is kinda a bummer.


but yea! walk walk walk. nice little apartments above, too.


OKAY yup west village it is.


CAN SOMEONE PLS CONFIRM THIS /W ME DOES THIS MEAN IT'S A RESTAURANT RUN BY MAFIA??
THE CURTAINS ARE ALL DRAWN IN MID DAY AND IT'S AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT TOO.
(this was what my aunt's bf told me n im inclined to believe)


granny bikes with flowers EXCITE MY SENSES.


cute little place but i remember whatever they were selling didnt appeal to me at all LOL


what.


i feel you, man.


DON'T TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE, RANDOM GRAFFITI.


NOT LOOKING ANYMORE, I HOPE, mr mugshot.


PICS OF BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE TO SHAME THE REST OF THE WORLD.


oh gawd i seen many pidgeons here but thankfully NONE OF THE REST.


DAT CUTE BUNNY WAS STARING INTO MY SOUL from across the street but shucks we were headed in another direction.


huurrrr. little italy reminded me somewhat of barcelona.


and there you have it in writing.


/EVERYONE STOPS TO TAKE PHOTOS OF THIS, BLOCKING MY VIEW and i simply curse


why all the pretty things don't come to sg /sobs


where we ate that night!


DONT TRUST PEOPLE WHO ORDER A SALAD AND NOTHING ELSE.


first time eating bread with olive oil!! i didn't think it'd taste so good!


sorry for bad pic of Rice to Riches BUT THERE WAS A FIRE TRUCK RIGHT IN FRONT HERE IT WAS CRAAAZZZYY (can u spot the one fireman) and YAS this was where i saw my first fireman UP CLOSE AND HE WAS SO HOT I UUGHGGHGSFHJaklfgdhf


BACK TO THE FOOD.
this is rice pudding(?) AND TASTES SURPRISINGLY COOL. i'd totally find this place again to try other flavors! AND THE BOWL THAT U GET TO KEEP IS TOTALLY CUTE TOO.


MY LIFE PHILOSOPHY


JESUS DROPPINGS.
i repeat, JESUS DROPPINGS.


these were HILAARRIIIOOUUUSSSS i wish i had a poster of all these instead of like $3 per magnetic strip that ive nowhere to place.


YUUUMMMM but i guess the rice-grainy texture might not be to everyone's taste.


SAME.


WELL, on to the next day when i think the main thing we wanted to see was the UN (which was closed lol) and the 9/11 memorial~


NANANANA NANANANA------


WHY IS IT everytime i am faaarrr away from home, some celebrity decides to die and make news and thats all i see for the next couple of days but NOOOO NOT U ROBIN WILLIAMSSSS DD:
i didnt even know he was suffering so bad he had to take his life??


MORE SADNESS.
i duno in NY, but my aunt from canada says she once gave a homeless dude (he was acting crippled) a buck, and the moment she turned away, he hopped off PERFECTLY FINE and into a waiting car. I DONT GET IT YOU'RE JUST SPOILING IT FOR THE ACTUAL HOMELESS PEOPLE DAMMIT.


WHAT IS THIS at the subway?? ILLUMINATIIIII???


here we are! it was such a gloomy and rainy day, too!
A white rose is put on the victim's name when it's their birthday....
/BAWLS MY EYES OUT UGGHH WWHHHYYYY


I DUNO IF THIS WAS ON PURPOSE BUT the mere SOUND of the water pouring down was SO SAD. so SAD. I CANNOT EXPLAIN IT it's like..even tho there were a lot of people cuz its a touristy area, the water flowing down is very prominent and THE FEELS u get from listening to it just....i duno. I LEGIT FELT LIKE CRYING HERE. IF NO ONE WAS AROUND I PROBABLY WOULD'VE.


Okay so it's the last day in NY! we didn't have much time cuz we had to drive to Boston (its like 4hrs to there) so we had a nice breakfast at this awesomely-decorated caffe bene nearby the hotel.


I LIKE THE WAY BAKERIES ARE HERE. even tho i am pretty sick of all the bread already, i just like the bakeries.


this needs a place in MoMA.


ive never been awake so early on a holiday.


WELL, TIME TO RIDE OFF.
AND DAMMIT, we passed by awesome streets we didnt get to see before! MAYBE NEXT TIME!


i took these all from the car so, anyway it said MALE VIEWING ROOMS. i suppose this means male strippers?
imma gonna see one of these next time YAASSS I AAMM.


YAY! and a stopover between NY and Boston! ITS SO CLEAN /W WIFI AND ACCEPTABLE FOOD PLACES (so unlike the stops btw sg and msia gawd)
STAY TUNED for the next entry on Boston and Montreal! =D

to be continued!

OMG this entry totally beats my Japan trip journal from years ago!!

WELL WHOEVER U ARE WHO STAYED ON TO READ THIS TIL THE END, i hope u liked the pics at least!! i hope to get a better cam with much better battery life span and anti-shake next time LOL.

IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO MAKE THIS gosh. i hope SOME of you read it AHAHAA TAKE CARE, YOUNGINS!! til next time! (which is hopefully soon-ish!)

OMG you're adorable! I feel like someone should've given you a virtual tour before the real thing so you'd get why some things are the way they are. But like some of the other replies, it's cute seeing you react to things we're use to. Well, not me entirely as I only get to visit NY to visit family since I live in Connecticut (WHICH I'M GUESSING YOU CUT THROUGH AND STOPPED AT TO GO TO BOSTON! WHICH ALSO MAKE ME SUPER SAD BECAUSE YOU WERE PROBABLY ONLY 30 MINS AWAY FROM ME!!!! *sobs*) But I you can chalk this down as an experience!

Ah!  I live in NY, not even an hour from the city on Long Island, and it's adorable how you would see things differently than I do!  Like, the prices/rudeness/different parts of the city!  It's so cool seeing how you react to something I see as normal (like walking fast, buying sub tickets, or being amazed by Italian restaurants (the one you saw with the closed shades?  It's probably because people live upstairs for cheap)

It was just refreshing to see where I live through someone else's eyes.  I'm happy you had fun!

Lol NY! My mom lived there. One of the busiest places ever! It would be hell for you to go through NYC on New Years Eve O_O Especially when it gets close to letting the giant ball down.

But as someone else said: people walk fast there because of business. There's a lot of businesses there, and a lot of people, so people have to go fast so that they aren't late or something.

I really like that you visited the 9/11 Memorial. Those pictures you took really captured the moment :'3 and omg the Disney store XD
Now that I think about it NY, I think they reopened the crown of the statue of liberty. It was closed down before but it might be reopened for people to walk through

What countries have you been to?

WOW then i think one shd...TAKE A CAB HAHAHAA its p easy to get a cab there right? i mean like 70% of the cars there are cabs O__O ohh our one cabbie from the airport was pretty cool...

yea IM JUST BUMMED that it was raining on the day when we went to 9/11 and theres like not much shelter from the metro to the actual site..and I KNOW ITS LIKE A TOURISTY SITE NOW but i feel incredibly uncomfortable to see ppl taking selfies or group pics there like I FEEL THE MEANING IS LOST on them man lol..all i wanted was like..a moment of silence?? LOL OK I JUST SOUND OLD NOW

uwaa..what countries hv i been to aahhh.../looks at map..tokyo, korea, taiwan, hong kong, china, australia, NZ, UK (bristol, london, wales, oxford, swindon), montreal, paris, barcelona, and now NY + Boston..I THINK THATS IT WOW I BEEN TO ALOT /cries happily/ (oh malaysia too but thats so close it doesnt rly count lol)

Oh it gets so packed you can't drive anywhere let alone walk O_O

They may be plentiful there but sometimes they aren't easy to flag down XD

I can't stand it when people do that. I can understand if they're doing it as a memoriam  type thing, but if it's just to goof off then.. no. Just no. -_-

HOLY CRAP I WISH I COULD VISIT THAT MANY PLACES!!! The only places I have been to were California (I lived there), Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. This was only because I was moving from Cali to Texas. (United States if you're unsure XD but I'm sure you know lol). I am going to Costa Rica this summer though after I graduate high school :D

i think if you're already from a bustling city state, there's no wow-factor LOL just little unknown corners and pleasant discoveries (like most cities, anyway!)

Thanks for sharing all of your photos aaaaa and your captions were perf. Seems like you had a good time here in amurica, hopefully we'll see you again uwu/

Aha yeah I have dear asshole and another booked called a year of living sinfully xD

Omg yeah big cities like NYC are always crazy fast paced. Everyone has somewhere to go and no time.

Lol I felt the same way in London and Paris. I went there for the first time last month and it was difficult ^^; it was even more difficult in Paris since I don't speak French. Being a tourist sorta sucks OTL

What was your favorite part in NY?

ohh same D: i also stayed at Paris once..i dont quite remember much tho, lol!! i think we just relied on maps a lot and so didn't hv to ask locals for directions or even interact x'D

AHHH fav part in NY... I DUNO UMM maybe the natural history museum? 8DD /IS A DORK hahahaa i remember bring rly excited abt the bones and the really nicely arranged displays etc! i just wanted to take lots of bone pics for reference BUT THE LIGHTING WAS SO BAD UGH
