How lucky can I get? Of all the days I could’ve visited, we came at the peak of New York Fashion Week! We voyuered, of course! Paris Hilton, in a classic Hollywood fashion, in the flesh, in New York, paparazzi, bashers, body guards and all, walked in neon orange-spotlight-myself ensemble! Oh more cherries on top of this trip, pleaaaase!! That Travel Expo hardwork has definitely been made worth it at this point!

How many boroughs are there in New York? Our tour guide asked like a quiz bee master. The answer is 5, Staten Island being the 5th with Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.
Libertas was France’s gift to the United States built by the same guy behind the Eiffel Tower. It is an apt sight welcoming immigrants from wherever they “escaped” from.
The First Date is my record holder first ever broadway show and it was awesoooome! Just about the perfect first show. And then the second one was The Phantom of the Opera. This, though, went downhill after the All I Ask of You song.
Well hear me out. I’m not a classic/period kind of person to begin with. And then the show came after the whole afternoon of walking around New York, the last stretch being at Central Park. So imagine the scenario after sweat and pumped up heart beat and then cold comfy theater seat and lullabyes. Yes. I bid the world good night in one of broadway’s longest running shows. I’m not proud.
No cash. They are not fond of cash in here.

Shooting scenes in New York, specifically at Times Square is common. Wouldn’t be shocked if the old man is actually David Letterman.
Ohh Central Park, you’re everything they said you are!
New York, you’ve been a dream! If there’s only one state I can go back to, it’s got to be you!
I never really understood why New York was the only US state in my bucket list. Now I know why.

(Thank you for the time, Popo, Ramoses, and most especially Kookie for being my official tour guide around New York! I will be back and we will be NYFW-ready this time!)
