Travel: Snaps and Stories around Manhattan

Manhattan's really one of my favorite places. It's very busy, sometimes stinky, beautiful and grungy all at the same time. And I love it more due to Central Park. So this summer when we went to NYC I asked by family to go with me around the park, but my companions didn't want to walk the long way back to our hotel. So we just ended up going to the Brooklyn Diner after around 30 mins of walking :)
The place was located halfway from Times Square and Central park and they had a long line for breakfast. We waited for around 20 mins. When we got inside, the place was  super packed!

It's apparently really popular with the theater crowd.
The waiters forgot to serve one dish - so they gave us free dessert instead! 
This was really good and the portions- for the other food we ordered- were huge.

IMO, they have great customer service - 5*

We met up with family after going around the city and they brought us to this hipster burger place near Penn Station - which I forgot the name of. Ill edit this later. They had fancy schmancy burgers and an atmosphere suited for yuppies. haha.

The next day, my sister and I wanted to go downtown/ the chinatown area just to check the feel/ ambience of the place. We took the bus from the NY Public Library and the traffic was really bad. While there, we went to check out Casey Neistat's studio (fangirls haha) and got Ice Cream from the Chinatown Ice Cream Co (apparently, you pass by a police precinct/ jail and we saw a man in cuffs being brought in by the police)

After, we just took the subway to Times Sqaure to watch Matilda, which was really good. The actors were great, especially the kid who played the lead. If you get the chance to watch it you should!

I'll try to upload more pictures of the Lib in a separate post :)

Travel: New Orleans pic spam!

New Orleans is a place where you go to eat, see sights, and eat again. haha.
Our driver recommended Deanie's as it was one of the best local restaurants in the French Quarter for him. And he was right. The food was really was delicious. The seafood was great, the service was great - everything was yummy! Tip: Ask locals for the best food recommendations, when you do, they'll probably also share really interesting info about their city

First Meal in NOLA: Deanie's Fried Seafood


Our last night we decided to find the best chicken in the New Orleans. The best one was a taxi ride away and we didn't have the energy to go there just to eat. So looked for the best one in the French Quarter instead. 

The best chicken DAW in the French Quarter. Meh. Tastes like fried chicken marinated in toyo and calamansi hehe
