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!
