Bright lights, yellow cabs and street signs

I’ll try and keep up with my posts, so I hope it’s not too late for me to share my New York experience. Yes! I’ve been to the big apple again, for the 3rd time. I had a few days to spare before going back to the Philippines and I had an amazing time with some of my Hyatt friends.

Exploring the big apple without any schedule to follow is a whole lot better than joining city tours and thus, having limited time. It was a great opportunity for me to just walk around a take photos.

Here’s my black and white collection.

   We also had the opportunity to dine at the famous Jean Georges restaurant that nestles near Central Park. Me and my friends had a lovely experience and i’d love to go back there again. We were given an amuse-bouche, because it was our first time in eating in the restaurant.

I got the veal for my main course and my friend tried the salmon entrée.

It was absolutely delicious, and I don’t say this a lot. The price range was also quite fair (Tip: It’s cheaper during lunch!) For dessert I had the caramel platter, which is a combination of three different caramel goodies.

Walking the streets of New York was truly overwhelming. Taking the subway, hotdog stands almost everywhere, and as Alicia Keys mentioned, the streets are mean. We got to visit Chelsea Market, it was a haven for food lovers.

One thing you need to do in New York is to have breakfast in Central Park (this was our alternative for Breakfast at Tiffany’s because we didn’t have any time to look for Tiffany’s lol) escaping from the rustle of the city, a nice walk in Central Park is very much needed.

It’s was a bummer that I didn’t get to see NYC in its white christmas state. I’m going to be honest and say that 3 days was definitely not enough for us to explore the city. I still wanted to go to a lot of places.

Finally, an NYC experience wouldn’t be complete without enjoying the skyline on Top of the Rock. 


Concrete Jungle

Yup, the city that never sleeps…New York. I was most excited for this part of our trip. My first visit was back when I was 6 years old and I couldn’t remember much. I’m lucky enough to be back here again 🙂

a New York experience wouldn’t be complete without watching a Broadway Musical. I finally crossed that off my bucketlist. We decided to watch The Phantom of the Opera because I really adored the story of this one. I’d make a  long blog review about this one but i’ll just describe it in one word. AMAZING. The production was beyond great and the orchestra was just amazing okay.

We also got to ride Circle line which took us to the Statue of Liberty and a tour around New York.

and for a better view of New York, Empire State’s observation deck is the place to be.
