I still vividly remember my weekend in New York last year as I stopped over on the way back from North Carolina – it was a lucky break from a business trip with my previous job. First on my American travel menu – FOOD.
I remember wondering about the place as I wandered around the place – elevating myself to The Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center (apparently a much better view than the Empire State building?), eating as much yummy streetside snacks as I could stomach, and the late night catch ups for cheeky drinks with new friends and old… when I wasn’t being stuck in endless yellow taxi traffic jams..!!
(With Ben at SKY ROOM – was a lot like Singapore’s Lantern/One Altitude/Overeasy – great views and good after-office crowds.)
Heavenly meals could be found in Hell’s Kitchen, and late night supper at K-Town was everyone’s plan after partying.
One weekend in the Big Apple was barely enough, yet enough to win my heart! (I won’t list them out but) I fell in love with all the things that I did, and felt a fiery desire to return one day and try everything that I didn’t before.
For firsts, NYC had the best brunches and this big city was all about the finest food galore.
(My cousin brought me for a swank Soho brekkie at Sanctuary T. I adored the brie cheese toast and a green tea magarita helped to kickstart my morning motor.)
But then, there was time for theatre, shopping strolls, walks in Central Park…
I relished the grandest church I had ever seen, right within the lighted delights of Times Square.
The city didn’t sleep, and neither did we!
