Travelog: Uptown Girl, New York City!

Can I tell you something? I am not a morning person. I have never been one. Unless you count mornings as being up until 4am, then I guess that makes me a morning person LOL. But if you’re talking being up at 6am for the daily grind, then I am really not a morning person. At all. I don’t do breakfasts unless I am required to attend breakfast meetings. And when I do, I usually find it inexplicably excruciating to tear myself away from the bed to do that zombie walk to the bathroom. I don’t get it, really. I used to wake up early in the morning for school. For years! You’d think I’d have already gotten used to that morning routine. But noooo. Once I began working and my work required me to be at the office at 11:30am onwards, that was the beginning of the end of my days as a morning person 🙂

But when I travel for leisure (well 90% leisure), I find myself getting out of bed mighty early to have breakfast. And when in New York and faced with a morning view of the Central Park, I was more than excited to jump out of bed to get ready– just so I could take morning walks there!

After all, it’s not everyday that I’d get this chance! So realy, special thanks to my DB who booked us in a really lovely place uptown, we all had views of the park!

The last few days here in New York have been nothing short of amazing, not just because my work meeting went incredibly well, but also because I have been spending a big bulk of my time with family. You know, as you get older (ok I speak for myself here), you will find that time spent with family remains the most precious of all. I have very busy siblings and we all have our own lives to live. So when we are all able to sync our time and be able to spend them together, it is really golden. Ever since my father passed away, my family has become so much closer. My father’s death also made me realize that family time is truly something that needs to be treasured. It is sacred.

During our time together in New York, all we really did was eat LOL! I will share more food photos and restaurant reviews/ recommendations in another post, because I have soooo many photos and I need to post them individually to give you all the full experience. While in New York, we also watched Hamilton, a critically acclaimed Broadway musical that has been sold out for months– thank you again DB 🙂

I won’t lie, I am not a big fan of rap, so I struggled to like Hamilton during the 1st half of the show. I also had a difficult time grasping the dialogue (by way of rap), which added to my difficulty in comprehending the show (ok call me stupid, you have my permission LOL). But the 2nd half of the show won me over. By curtain call, I was “woot-wooting” loudly like the rest of audience inside the packed theatre 🙂

I am writing this entry while on the road right now and my internet is becoming rather spotty, so I think I will end this post now before I lose everything 🙂 But I promise to keep you all more updated as soon as I get a more stable connection!
