SPRING BREAK A week in New York with… 

SPRING BREAK: A week in New York with my dear friend Nina. Stayed at her lovely apartment in the Upper East side, a two blocks from Central Park. It was so beautiful, you could see the trees peeking out amidst the buildings from her living room window! Did so many things & saw so many places, and of course ate ate ate! Went to MoMA, Met, Times Square, Central Park, 5th Ave, 30 Rock/Rockefeller Center, watched Avenue Q, Jersey Boys, celebrated St. Patricks!!, visited SoHo, World Trade Center, and ate at Les Halles, Shake Shack, Ippudo, Buddakan, Rice to Riches, Momofuku, Artichoke Pizza, Sushi of Gari, Spot Dessert bar, chicken + rice cart… It’s been too long, I barely remember all the places! WordPress is slow with uploading pictures and ever since taking photos with my DSLR, ive been shooting in RAW so the files are really huge. Explains why I don’t upload onto FB/Wordpress! :( That’s the sacrifice you gotta make for quality I guess :] Here are a few of my pictures!

MoMA

SHAKE SHACK. mmm. Better than In-n-out!

Top of the Rock

Shopping in SoHo

Times Square

Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup Cans'

Night-in watching movies--of course, while sipping Nuvo & snacking on Shortbread cookies!

Spot Dessert bar. The best cheesecake I've ever had!

The Met


With Nina

What else this semester? Back in LA, went with friends to watch Bill Cunningham’s documentary at the Nuart theatre! Also met Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) & Garance Dore (Garance) for a casual symposium/ meet and greet held at USC! They signed my coffee table book too, which I was so excited about :D

Garance

GRADUATION: Finally graduated from USC! It was such a beautiful day out, definitely LA weather that I will miss in the future. I wish I took more pictures and saw more of my friends, but it was just chaos that day. Can’t believe four years of my life has gone by just like this. I’ve met some of my best friends here at SC, and together, we’ve formed memories and transformed my college experience into the best four years of my life. I love you guys.

Inside of Town & Gown. Chandeliers were a gorgeous finishing touch :)

And now it’s summer! I have so many things to see/do/eat in LA that I want to cross of my bucket list! Yet here I am holed up at home studying for the MCATS and working on my medical school application. Besides research, I barely venture out into the outside world. Haha, so please check up on me every so often to make sure I’m still alive and healthy. Just kidding…but really ;)
