I finally went! OIJI- korean restaurant in the East Village, NYC
If you’re in the mood for Korean food and you want a place where you’re given a bunch of free banchan (side dishes), with massive amounts of food… then go to K-town. You can go with a large group, eat until you’re stuffed and throw back a few bottles of soju amidst the loud chatter of the restaurant. You might even run into someone you…
As someone who has lived in New York for about 5 years now… I have come to dread passing through Times Square. It’s busy, crowded, loud and touristy but of course, it is also in the center of the city making it a convenient and a must visit area. Last Friday I was invited to preview the new CitizenM hotel. I had no idea what to expect….
Happy first day of 2014!! Hope it’s been nothing but good for you so far. 🙂 Last night, I was thinking about how last week didn’t quite feel like Christmas for me (maybe it was the odd weather) but strangely, this week, I could feel the approach of the new year in my bones.

The Foods we ate in NY- adventure week continued

It’s only natural that after some adventure she tries new foods too, don’t you think? Besides, getting bullied by the weather and walking quite a bit is EXHAUSTING- we were…

I’m in my room right now writing this post. The same room that never lost power, water or internet the whole time Hurricane Sandy was wreaking havoc on the rest of the city/east coast.

No explanation necessary
You can see the exhibit “Signs and Symbols” at the Whitney Museum after waiting in line and then paying admission but street art is ubiquitous and free, just look around. Here are photos I have taken myself of street art within the past couple of months. (I’ve been really into street art these days) Presenting: my own exhibit of “Sign and Symbols” if you will.
