NEW YORK CITY 2017 WINTER: WINTER STORM STELLA

Anyone here whose name is STELLA?

Going once? Going twice?

LOL.

Anyway, yeah on 3/14/17 Stella paid a visit to the Northeast and she dumped a huge pile of snow for us here in NYC. Actually it was not as bad as Jonas last year — Jonas forced me to stay local that day 😛

So I decided to go out anyway since the R was actually working (yea yea some above grounds train were not working) even tho it was a pain to walk here and there with the rain boots. Some businesses were open, some were like ‘screw this, we are closed’, some decided to open after 4 or 5 pm.

And you know what? The storm itself was not that bad. I actually enjoyed it! HAHA! seriously people, if you are afraid of a mere 6-10 inches of snow then I guess those New York Upstate weather will break your bones. And don’t even speak of Canadian snow 😀

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy this last round of winter storm video 😉

Yours Truly 🙂

THE FOODIE DUOS: 2017 VALENTINE’S SPECIAL

Hello everyone, how you doin?

Sorry for the uber late post and update. I have sent the gifts to all the Christmas giveaway winners so if anyone of you have receive them, let me know in the comment box below. I hope you guys enjoy the gifts!

Speaking of gifts, how’s your Valentine’s day this year? For me, this year’s Valentine was a semi special. Why? because at one point BB had already prepare a special night out at this nice Southern place but we were stuck in a horrific traffic so we had to cancel it. And what sucks is that it was on a Sunday afternoon! We were swearing like crazy in the car consider how packed up the highway that day!

But of course there was a sweet ending to that! BB gave me the best Valentine’s gift ever. Nope, not a diamond, not a car, but something that we would cherish for the rest of our lives.

Those were lovely but not those. LOL.

Curious enough?

Ok. Ok.

A night with Michael Bolton.

Yeap, there ya go! Michael Bolton’s concert on February 19th 2017.

For those of you who do not know me that well, I am gonna spill a secret. I have been a fan of Bolton since I was in elementary school. Yea yea, I am an old school persona and I still think he’s hot even at the ripe age of 64! Ok, don’t tell BB that LOL but seriously he still has the voice, the charm, and the… (ok enough :P). And that Sunday night concert prove it.

BB lookin dashin handsome (as always!) 😉

The same dress I wore to Il Trovatore in Oct 2015 LOL

Bolton and his back vocalist, Sam Fly (or so I have heard :P)

Ay, even at 64 he is still lookin hot! 😀

So Bolton sang most of his 80s and 90s hits including How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, When A Man Loves A Woman, Steel Bars, Said I Loved You But I Lied, How Can We Be Lovers, Sittin On A Dock OF The Bay, as well as his songs from his latest CD “Songs of Cinema”. BB and I really enjoyed the concert although I must say I was sorta bummed because he did not sing Go The Distance because I have been waiting for him to actually perform it. Another bummer was that when he performed When A Man Loves A Woman. Bolton always surprised his fans during his concert but this time around he only came from one side of the guest entrance (not from the middle part of the seating section) so I could not take a much closer picture with my camera. Unlike Singapore’s concert in 2009 which I also attended, he basically just stayed in one side then went back to the stage. This left most of the viewers on the other side (including me) blocked from seeing or taking pictures of him. I was also surprised that he did not sing songs from his 2009 album “One World One Love” but I guess it was understandable consider he needed to prioritize his latest album first.

Despite those glitches, BB and I really enjoyed our night out together and I eventually made him like Bolton now. LOL. The day did not start smooth but the evening concert really paid off. Oh and btw, don’t expect too many pictures or videos from the concert because I am not the type of person who would glue to her cell or camera from beginning till the end. When I go to a concert or Broadway play or Opera, I want to enjoy it as much as I can. Bolton did not mind the audience taking videos or photos tho but to me I’d rather take couple of mementos and hear him sings because hey, the show is not free! 😉

 

Yours Truly 🙂

P.S.: incase you are wondering, we only went to a small Bar and Grill to eat before the show. Nothing fancy really just a pierogies and Jamaican pork sandwiches with fries.

The Foodie Duos Trip: #thefoodieduostravel – Introduction

Before i begin, i apologize in advance for the lack of updates. I have no idea why i am in a lazy mode lately. I had tons of ideas months ago on what to write but it never seems to be written down on drafts. Never mind about writing down, i have tons of videos that i need to edit and upload on Youtube.

So why the delay you may ask?

Honestly, i don’t know.

I have been dealing with family issues and trust me, it’s not that simple to resolved. Especially when you have someone who think differently than you and starts to mock up some stories in order for you to believe. And then you have another version of story from another person. And so on and so forth.

See, another rambling.

Anyhow, if you follow my Instagram then you probably already knew about my summer break trip to the countryside in Pennsylvania with my beloved boobear. Even tho it was short and kinda in a rush (i tell ya, 4 days getaway is not enough!:P) but we had a blast. It was a very needed break from the big Apple. Don’t get me wrong, i’m a big city woman and i love NYC but there are times when i just want to escape the hecticness of the city. And surprisingly, this trip has won this woman’s heart on living her future life someday in a small town.

Ok that seems very very early but yea lol.

So boobear and i discussed on this trip and possibilities on some places to go around 1.5 months ago. The planning however did not begin until like 3 weeks ago before the 4th of July. He suggested Lake George in Upstate NY, countryside in Pennsylvania, and many other places on the East Coast. I have been to Lancaster PA and the surrounding towns about 3 years ago but haven’t really explored that much because i went there during the winter. We were like glued to the computer to what it seems like eternity until we finally settled on Countryside trip in Pennsylvania. We also did some thorough research on where to go, where to stay, what to do, etc.

The stories will be written into approx. 4-6 posts. I will try to put as much information as i can but it will take me lots of time to upload the pictures, the videos, and write down the words. Please bear with me and stay tune for our Day 1 Trip!

Yours Truly 🙂
