I remember the reason why I started this blog.. It’s because I’m starting a new journey in life, in New York City. But duh, I’ve obviously been slacking off and this blog is collecting dust. Not literally ahem.
Since I came here, I’ve develop deep feelings for Broadway musicals, the latest one I watched was
My ticket wasn’t the most expensive one but I love orchestra seats so I chose the cheapest one which is right at the back. When someone says orchestra seats, I’d think “ooh, the seat wouldn’t be too bad, the ground is slanted anyway, right? Everyone gets a good view, huh?” But nooo.. it didn’t cross my mind that I’m a small Asian girl in a big city so for this musical, the lady sitting in front of me was so tall I could barely see anything, even when I moved my head side to side, it was difficult to get a good view.
Thankfully two ladies came in late and they were supposedly seated to the right of the lady in front of me and it was too much trouble to move in and out so the lady in front of me moved inside and turns out the late lady in front of me wasn’t that tall so yay me! This really was a blessing.
I loved the show so much! It was so full of energy, the songs are so catchy, the performers are amazing! Never thought I’d see flips on a Broadway show, that just means that I haven’t been watching enough huh lol.
Anyway, if you haven’t watched this show – it’s definitely worth it! You’ll be bopping your head along with the music and until today (3 days later), I still have Sex Is In The Heel stuck in my head. It’s one of the songs, by the way.
Sunday was the funny, exciting day! A couple of weeks back, I came across a Meetup event for Lazy Hikers, it’s a 13 mile “hike” from Tarrytown to Yonkers which take approximately 6 hours.
The funny part comes:
- Reached Tarrytown at 1030am, given a bathroom break at 7-Eleven til 1045am before we start our journey
- Turns out the line was super long so a couple of us were actually left behind
I wasn’t part of the bathroom line but I had to wait for Phatty. Thank goodness I met two Malaysian girls and got their numbers so one of the girls helped us out after
- The girl was sending me their live location and we were trying to catch up with them
Yes, getting left behind even before we started. Managed to meet them at 12pm, an hour later when everyone was having their lunch break. Phatty joked that our “journey” after that was boring, now that the challenging part of trying to catch up with the group is over lol.
We were walking along the Old Croton Aqueduct trail which is basically walking along people’s backyards. It’s nice being out of the city, everyone was willing to get up at 8am to walk 6 hours just to get out of the city, that’s how much city people appreciates nature.
Phatty and I are still obsessed over Westworld so we were joking about it the whole time
Wish I took more photos, I looked pretty bad, with my sweaty unwashed hair so I didn’t wanna take photos of me ugh. I gotta learn how to hike in style.
We managed to take the 504pm train back to Grand Central Terminal and that was when we felt our jelly legs. Phatty didn’t give a shit where I wanted to have ice cream (it was so hot I had to have ice cream), he just needed to sit haha.
In conclusion, this weekend was amazing. Enjoyed the musical, started the hike getting left behind and meeting two Malaysian girls (what are the chances, huh). Definitely looking forward to a weekend like this again!
