About a month ago, I went to NYC with a friend to visit our bestie who was there for a few days. The timing worked out perfectly that we only needed to take a friday off for this much needed vacation :D On Thursday, we took the Megabus overnight from Toronto to NYC. When we arrived at the city, it was already around 11 am. We crashed into our friend's hotel room, freshened up, grabbed lunch at the cafe downstairs and we headed to Jersey Garden for some serious damage! I already blogged about my haul in my previous post, check it out if you want :)
After all the intense shopping, we decided to go out for some partying. We were so tired that night from all the traveling and shopping, we called it an early night and went back to our hotel room to gossip and get some serious girl's talk done :D
On Saturday, we headed to MoMA Museum. And again, we got tired from all the walking and art gazing so we sat down at Terrace 5, a cafe located inside the museum, for some snacks. The Flourless Chocolate Cake tasted AMAZING! I'm intrigued to learn how to make one myself :D
I took the chance to visit my dear friend Sonya who's studying at Parsons right now. She has been my university roomie for the longest time during our undergrad studying math day and night, but she decided to chase her passion in fashion to New York. She's my greatest inspiration. I sometimes wish I could be brave like her! I miss her so much, especially when I'm studying for my exams nowadays, I just wish we could study together like old times! But as long as she's doing what she enjoys now, I'm truly happy for her :)
We decided to go to 萩 Sake Bar located near Times Square at 49th and 7th street for dinner. The place was packed! We had to wait at least an hour to get a table. The restaurant was quite small, but cozy and the food was yummers!
On Sunday, we took the MegaBus back to Toronto at noon. Going back was way more tiring because it was during the day so I couldn't sleep on the ride. I had tons of fun during the trip. There was way too much to see, but too little time! Oh and I later on learned that Winnie arrived at NYC the day that I left for a very similar reason that I went for! We even stayed at the same hotel! I was in awe when I found out, what a coincidence! Next time I have any sort of traveling plans, I'll be sure to check with her so we can have some sort of meetup!!
And there you have it, my really short and sweet vacation to NYC! It all ended so fast, and on monday, I was at work again =_=
