It’s such a fun oasis in the city — great pool, yummy food, well lit lobby. Some parts are zen, some parts are bustling like Grand Central Terminal.
I’m filled with warmth for the kindness and good there is out there.
When I’m away on my travels my favorite parts of home that I miss… 90% of that is deeply rooted in Brooklyn — my family, my grandmother’s garden, biking to V’s in BedStuy, late nights at Crown Inn with Jenn. Check out The New Regulars for a glimpse of the place I call home.
Joined by two foodie girlfriends, Raquel and Katie, I ventured to Chinatown restaurant Nyonya, one of the few places in NYC specializing in Singaporean & Peranakan food. I guess that’s the amazing thing about living in NY huh. It being such a cultural melting pot, there’s usually someplace that can satisfy your cravings.
Koreatown is in another stage of evolution now, becoming a real foodie destination with cuisine and dining experience to be reckoned with. I can’t think of a better example of this than the restaurant we chose, Her Name is Han.
I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Earlier this August, I took a 20 minute cab ride from my place in Brooklyn into seemingly another world.
With the sun shining and the temps in the 70s, I accompanied my friend Jennifer to Brooklyn Flea to pick out a few things for her new apartment. More on that later, in the meantime, I’m pretty pumped I got to break out my Salvatore Ferragamo oldie but goodie for the first time this year. In an extreme mix of high & low, I paired them with H&M sneakers and had some BK fun. Don’t mind the bandaid: I took a small tumble this week, eager for my favorite Indian restaurant. Bare legs, fringe and sneakers! Tis the season. Get my look with some picks below!
