Memorial Day

IMG_4293-001


Hi folks, how's your weekend? I had a really nice one :)

Saturday, i woke up late and the degrees had dropped down to 9℃!!
i couldn't believe that cause it's already the end of May. How this happened?
anyway, i cleaned up my room and looked around blogs...
and i met with my friend, Miyu at Think Coffee in Union Square.
i haven't met her since i came to NY in winter break. so it's been a while!
We talked a lot! That was so much fun! it was raining and pretty cold though...

Sunday, i woke up so late... it was almost 1:00pm
but the weather was great! warm and sunny... and it just made me feel "wanna go out!"
so i went to Bedford, Brooklyn. Miyu told me "you must go there!"
But unfortunately, NO L trains between Lorimer St. and Manhattan..
so i had to take shuttle bus from Lorimer St. to Bedford.

Once, i got there i saw so many nice cafe and full of people around the avenue...
yes. it's Sunday.. family, couple, and friends... but me.. you know i just went there by myself.
I don't mean i don't like being alone but i just wanted to share my feeling with someone.
like.. "look at these! so cute!" or "omg that's hilarious!!" something like that.
so i just kept taking photos to share the feeling with you all!

"LOOK AT THIS SMALL DICTIONARY!!"

There are bunch of vintage stuff.
books, cameras, toys, buttons, and something we don't even know what that is.. lol

then stopped by a book store, called SPOONBILL & SUGARTOWN.
i think i had been there almost an hour..
i was trying to find a book that i can read... like easy to read, something about art, not small letters..

and i finally find a book!
i can read that on the train...
but i'm not sure i can finish that or not.. I'll try!

and walked around again...

But i haven't eat anything since i woke up... so my stomach started growing...
so went to a cozy cafe next by the book store.


IMG_4258


called VERB CAFE..
i ordered medium latte and a bagel with tomato, pesto, and cream cheese.
it was good and the great thing is they have free wifi!
so you can find people with macbook staying there for hours on end.


IMG_4282


but i'm the one...
i stayed there an hour or something but without macbook...lol
i was just watching people passing by...
i do that all the time when i'm alone.
i just love it... creepy huh?

anyway, after that i looked around...
and got a new bag and cute tops at some vintage store..

IMG_4304

i just needed to put bunch of photos on my laptop.
so it's taking long time to post all of the photos... sorry about that.

But today i'm gonna post about Disney land in Anaheim!
It was really hot day... like burning! actually i got sun burned a lot!
you cannot imagine... no more white skin that i used to have...
I should've put sunscreen on me, especially my face and neck...
but it''s ok we had fun!

When we got there and saw the castle, we felt like it's small...

A New Life just started...




Hi folks, how are u doing ?
well it's Friday! and u know what? Monday is Memorial Day in US.. which means 3 days off! 
yes!! i can sleep whole day! i'm not gonna do that though... lol

well, I'm in NY right now and i'm staying with my host family in Brooklyn. 
and i just started my full-time internship yesterday.
well, it's been going well so far, i worked just 2 days though...
The first day, which is yesterday, I was completely overwhelmed.
Everything is new to me and I'm learning lots of stuff, so I'm pretty tired right now.
But it's interesting to know about publishing which is related my future dream.
and fortunately the place is really closed to the Grand Central so probably i can explore around Manhattan... but now I don't have enough space in my head... so later :)


ps: Subway in NYC just reminds me of busy days in Tokyo...
but i can say subway here is not that complicated like Tokyo's one..
But it just smells so bad... omg... 
seriously i can't imagine subway in summer, i think it's gonna be worth.. ugh...


anyway, 3 days off! 
take a rest little bit and walk around!
cause it's NY so many things to see, feel and EAT! lol




oh! i'll def post LA-day3- later!! 




well good night :)


See u again!!! xxx
