I ♡ NY

Finally, I visited 
New York City!!

Day 1 

I have never been, but always talked about going.  Like I always say, I love love NEW York, but I have never been.  I was in love with New York and it was my favorite city even before going.  ( Blame the media.)
 Landed by myself and went to Cousin Xai David's apartment.  I didn't feel like I was in New York until the subways and the people.  Buildings are definitely just like big cities in CA, but the people are nothing like Californians. 

Went to breakfast with Seinfeld.  Cool little place, super friendly! 

Strolled around Central Park by myself.  The Girls (Lee and Yer) didn't arrive til later in the afternoon and Cousin Xai went to work!  The park was quiet, and boring.  Still cold out so not much to do, everyone was still inside keeping warm and it was in the morning, people were out and about their daily routines.

Not so green,, wrong season, but still all worth going and people watching!

A little sight seeing with the Ladies!!

Lunch @ Schnipper's

(Time Square, Forever 21, Grand Central Station, Cake Boss Bakery)

Went back to the apartment to get ready for
dinner with the amazing and cool Cousin Xai David!!! His favorite pizza place and all of ours, of course,  after we ate two whole pizzas!!! TWO! By the way, there is only one way of eating pizza in New York.  
And we ate it the New Yorker way!  

We got a little of the Brooklyn Bridge and their little lock of loves.

First night out in the BIG APPLE!!! 
(beer pong and a cool bar.)

New York, please have public bathrooms, peoples' bladder cannot hold too much!
I am laughing and thinking about this night, no names shall be named. 
Whatever happens in NY stays in NY!

Who leaves the subway to go back to a bar and use the restroom? 

It was only our first day and the time felt like a week.  Almost, but not quite ready to come back home!

Day 2 was easy, we decided to go to the Bronx Zoo.  Due to NY's cold Spring, the animals were not ready to come out yet.  We saw a few animals, but plenty of PEACOCKS.  They roamed the Zoo freely and was probably one of the best highlight of the day!  

Got on the subway, not really lost, but a few subway mistakes here and there.  Finally got to Chinatown to eat the Famous Vanessa's Dumplings!  Sooo cheap and delish!  We spent like 20 and got meals for days! 

Later that evening was dedicated to a comedy show!  hahaha 

 Walking from Chinatown to Washington Square was an adventure within itself.  Tried to stop at every bar and take a shot...Good or bad idea?  If u ask me, I say good.  It was super cold walking and as we drank more, it got warmer, even too warm at our destination place.  (FOUR FACED LIAR)

The Ladies and I were meeting up with David.  David is Cousin Xai David's Roomate.  I know, I know, confusing, so many DAVIDS...There's more... There is a big David, a medium David and a little David.  That is another story for another time!

We got out $$$ worth of laughing!  The few guys were pretty funny.  Oddly seemed like they were with us the entire trip cause they be capping jokes on us or our conversations.  
(Double Chins, Getting pulled over, Depends)

Leaving the show, it poured and poured.  We were troopers and went at the rain like we owned it!
The DAVIDS were troopers, stayed and chatted until the weeee hours of night time and they both work in the AM.  Good times fellows!

Day 3 with the Statue of Liberty.

Went to do the whole Staten Island and tourist things down south Manhattan. 

Saw Ground Zero.

Finally had time to tour the rest of Chinatown and got some goodies. 
Chinatown = SAME SAME in every city!

Round 3 of outing in the BIG APPLE.
(Gaslight. So much fun, didn't make it anywhere else.)

 Zabeth and Mo came out on a THURSDAY NIGHT.  Officially adopted a little NY brother, Mo.

NY cannot handle us CA Ladies.

To be continued....Part 2.
