I saw this photo of Rockefeller Center on my Instagram feed recently, and did a double take:
Why, you may ask?
'Cause it looks SO SO different from the Rockefeller Center that I saw in New York! :O :O :O
SEE?? Same location, same angle, same view... SO DIFFERENT. And it was only a month plus ago??
Another view. Right opposite is 5th Avenue, and you can just FEEL the energy of New Yorkers bouncing off! :D
The place was covered with colorful blooms and cherry blossoms, and the ponds (previously they were ponds!!) were filled with neon pink rubber duckies.
You heard me right. NEON PINK rubber duckies. I love how pretty and random everything looks!
I repeat, now it looks like this. #mindblown
Couldn't resist to take some nice OOTD photos with all the cherry blossom background:
Ruffled eyelet slip dress: AZORIAS (Also available in Pink)
Black pumps: Forever 21
I love this dress, which is inspired by Self Portrait! Looking back at these photos, I regret not wearing the pink version, it will look so nice with this awesome pink background-- rubber duckies and all! :P
A little more about my day, other than our Rockefeller excursion, haha.
Spent the earlier part of the day by myself, 'cause the boy had to work. Felt like a local New Yorker 'cause I carried a coffee in my hand while navigating around Manhattan LOL.
I honestly thought I was so smart, 'cause it was really cold and I honestly believed that holding a hot cup of liquid in my hands would keep me warm. Why else would everyone be carrying a cup too right?
WRONG. 'Cause hot liquids will turn cold too wtf. And it was so cold that my coffee literally turned cold in 3 minutes. -_- USD4 down the drain FML.
Queuing in Momofuku Milk Bar.
THIS is what I came to New York for! *hearts in eyes*
When planning a NYC trip with my sisters in the past, one of the top to-do in my NYC bucket list is to eat this famous cereal-topped soft serve from Momofuku Milk Bar. I came to know about it from Instagram, and many of the New Yorkers that I admire all rave about this. Also, if you know me well, you will know that I am a sucker for anything milky. So I was so dead set on trying this at least once in my life!
And I did.
I seriously felt like a hundred of emotions running through my veins while licking sloppily on this milky heaven. Deliriously happy and touched was the main emotions! :D
Also ticked another must-try food off my list. Because when in NY, you have to have street food! And the Halal Street Guys come highly recommended.
It doesn't look that appetizing, I know. But it's really good value for money (USD7 for the biggest pot of rice ever wtf), and very yummy too!
Tip: Ask for extra white sauce. And add the red sauce with caution 'cause it's really spicy!
Finally finished off our day out with take-away cupcakes from Sprinkles, which is supposed to have the best red velvet cupcake.
Wait till you see Sprinkle's cupcake ATM!! :O
Wait till you see my eat red velvet ice cream with toasted red velvet cake toppings! :O
Ended the night with cupcakes in bed and the most aching legs, but with a heart that was bursting with happiness and gratitude. :D
