So last Saturday Ryan and I decided to go visit New York since its been such a long time since we’ve been there. Crazy how 4 months have gone by so quick already.
We just decided to go visit and hang out at the places we usually would go to when we were still living in New York. I say the biggest thing that brought back memories of NY was getting a metro card and riding the underground trains again.
LOL, Ryan looks like such a creeper in this photo, because his eyes are out of his glasses. HAHA
Here you go! This is much better LOL ^__^
We were headed to Korean Town. K-Town is great because they have The Face Shop there and also tons and tons of restaurants!
One of our favorite spots to eat in K-Town is the Cafeteria, because they have Red Mango there and also many great selections of food. ;)
We ordered some Soba Noodles, or as I call it “Cold Yummy Noodles.” ;)
If you guys have not tried this then definitely give it a try they are so good.
So for those of you who never had this dish before, what you do is simply dip the cold brown noodles in the sauce that is at the top left corner.
For me I only dip the cold noodles half way in the sauce because I think it’s a little too salty for me.
The food that is in the small containers are the side dishes that you would eat with the cold noodles.
To finish off my sweet tooth we got some frozen yogurt from Red Mango.
This is a mix of green tea and mango frozen yogurt. For the toppings I like it fruity so there’s watermelons, strawberries, and blueberries.
A picture with my cute Rilakuma phone case. Well sadly I guess these are not the real legit ones from San X but they look really similar to it so oh well. xP
Honestly this phone case has saved my iphone from so many damages, because I dropped it at least 3 times. There were 2 times when I dropped it on hard cement floor and 1 time on wooden floor. This phone case is very durable and catches the fall nicely since its rubber.
I’m surprised my hair turned out nice since I had to wake up at 7am to do my hair and make-up real quick and leave for NY. xD
Here’s a NG picture that sorta turned our okay LOL, was getting ready for the picture shot when Ryan just snapped it. Out of all the pics we took he said this was his favorite LOL. “A natural shot of you sweetie” - Ryan
HAHA I swear taking pictures with Ryan is so funny because he can be such a dork, every time I’m like hey babe lets take pictures and in the end they turn out like this, LOL his lurker face or sometimes his Derp Face.
So I guess if kisses and hearts were able to be seen this is how Ryan would receive them from me LOL. <3 xoxo
Alright I guess that’s it for the camwhore pics LOL
Funny thing was when we were walking back to the train station from K-Town I saw this poster.
HAHA, I laughed because this brought back so many memories of my childhood. Yes I was an H.O.T fanatic. So first thing was “OMG, babe its Kang Ta haha” Ryan didn’t even know what I was talking about LOL. Well for those of you guys who don’t know H.O.T was the DBSK back in the 90s they were the most popular boy band back then when I was a kid.
Man they are still HOT today. Sadly I can’t attend this party since its only in 3 locations. Well for those of you guys who are going have fun partying to awesome songs from the 90s ^^.
OOO so for those of you guys who don’t know, I am a huge fan and totally in love with the TV series (How I Met Your Mother).
I’ve seen mostly all of the episodes but I still need to catch up on season 7.
Well as most of you guys know “How I Met Your Mother” is based on the main character Ted (guy on the far left) who is narrating the story of how he met his wife to his two kids a girl and a boy who are in their teens. His ex/good friend is Robin the girl next to him. Then there is Barney the AWESOME womanizer. Last we have Lily and Marshall the cutest and funniest couple ever. (Ryan Loves Marshall HAHA, thats his favorite character.) For me my favorite character would have to be Barney.
He is such a talented actor, WHY? because in this TV series he play as a womanizer but in reality he is actually gay and very open with his relationship to his fiance. They both have 2 kids. ;) I honestly didn’t know that he was gay until I did some research of the TV series. This is when you know that someone is a really talented actor when they can play a character that is way beyond who they really are in reality. I gotta say, if it was not for Neil Patrick Harris this show would not be AWESOME! and LEGENDARY!
So this story takes place in the Big Apple, New York City, well preferable in Manhattan. The bar that they always go to in the story is called MacLaren’s, which is actually based on a real bar in New York called McGee’s. So when Ryan and I was in NY we decided to look up this bar and pay a visit to it.
Awesome part was that you could come and watch the new episodes here every Monday.
When you walk inside you could see a lot of pictures of the cast. Sadly this one didn’t have Marshall. =___=
I couldn’t help but get this shirt. LOL Barneys Awesome line from the show.
I didn’t have time to take a picture with me wearing it, but I will post up pictures of it later. The size is perfect, fits nicely because this is a girl shirt.
We eventually got to meet up with Sai, (Ryans good friend).
This was when we were in ChinaTown sipping up bubble tea from Kung Fu Tea.
Their bubble tea is really good, I would recommend this place to anyone who has not been there before.
We were so hungry after so we headed over to Ryan’s old work place, YOKOCHO.
Bim Bim Bop was yummy but a little too spicy after I added loads of the sauce to it LOL. HMMM Chicken gizzards are the bomb. So frekin delicious.
Alright, now its time to rave about what I bought.
This is the Black Pearl Mask from My Beauty Diary. I have been using face masks for a while now and I’ve got to say they are amazing and now I wonder why didn’t I start using this before. xP Well for best results you should use this at least 2-3 times a week. I use at least 2 face masks each week. One on Sunday to start off the week and then the second one on Thursday. I also have Korean Face Masks too so I switch off different face mask types.
This is the Korean Face Mask that is from Dabo, I bought these from a Korean Shop in Virginia. These face masks are more sticky so they stick more on your face than the Japanese ones. The Japanese ones have more liquid to them than these Korean ones. Overall I like both but the think about these Dabo face masks is that if the serum gets into your eyes it burns! But don’t worry if that happens then just get a wet cloth and wet it with cold water and tap that on your eyes, that will ease the burn and also make your eyes feel better from the sting.
If you guys are wondering where in the heck can you guys buy these if you don’t live close to any Japanese or Korean beauty store then no worries there is always the internet for that. ;)
Here are a couple of online sites where you can buy these face masks.
Pretty & Cute sells the box as well as the Single packs.
I say buy the whole box because it’s worth it and your going to be using more than 1 each week anyways.
Well last time I checked on ebay if they had the Korean ones and they did but for some reason I can’t find them anymore. =___= Well always search up these face masks on ebay and amazon first and see if its legit and then buy it from them because its way much more cheaper. ;)
So I’ve been late on my videos and such so I’m gunna be working on those now. ^__^ Hope you guys try out these face mask because your going to love them. ;)
Talk you guys later in my next blog. <3 xoxox
