I spent the last days of the year with my good friends in between work.
Beginning of the month we went to The Irish Exit for Yanise's birthday. Pretty much all the girls on top of the bar. LOL I was up there in the beginning, but as I got more and more drunk I refused. I knew I'd be the one to fall off that thing.
Taking pics/video in the purikura booth. Sadly the puri shop is closing down :c a new one is supposed to open closer to my home, in Brooklyn... no clue when and where exactly though
Some of the finished results:
Then after, Rose House :3
My 3-tier tea meal that I split with Susan. bologna + green pepper wraps, ham sammiches, more rose custard, scone with rose jam, cream puff, black&white cookie, cheesecake, coffee ice cream and some sort of flourless cake/mousse cake? I forget how it tasted. It was some sort of citrus maybe
Will probably be my last visit to Rose House. Had a lot of good times at that teahouse, but with rising prices and increasingly-less-than-satisfactory customer service and quality, I think I'm pretty much done with them. I'll stay closer in the city from now on
Another day after work and Christmas shopping, I went with my boos Laura and Yanise to see Japanese group Trippple Nippple in a barplace down on the LES.
I only remember Trippple Nippple on Tokyo Rising, a documentary with Pharrell Williams and his trip to Japan after the earthquake happened. I never really listened to their music until that night. It was pretty chaotic-crazy sounding, but cool in it's own unique way. Especially the way they dress up and perform.
Then one day after picking up my paycheck the week before Christmas... I decided to walk the Brooklyn Bridge by myself.
Rarely am I able to just wander and wonder anymore... I try to take slower steps, and have more thoughts, but with work and everything else, I can't do it as much as I want to anymore. It's pretty depressing.
It was a good night that night though, to see the city lights and see the groups of people cuddling, or viewing the sites and enjoying themselves.
Best dessert I've had this year: Nutella eclair from Financier. It seemed to melt in my mouth omg.
Then after Christmas, I met up with my boo Jesika from Florida <3 ended up buying lashes, going for Korean BBQ at Koreana, and then going for purikura.
You can see most of our shots on her blog lol. Disliked most of them, wish I wore my regular bra than my push-up make-my-Ds-look-like-Es bra LOL oh well
I loooooov u Jesika ; w; come back soon bby
Purikura... tea... drinking... concert... wandering... reflecting... I wouldn't have 2011 end any other way.
Actually, getting the Holy Ghost was the best ending to 2011 for me :3 I literally got it the morning of New Year's Eve. The joy I felt as I entered into the new year, with a clean slate and no more negative thoughts... as time goes on this month I'll discuss it more.
I hope everyone has had a good 2012 so far. I hope you remembered to leave the past behind, and all the drama and the stress and the tears, so that you can use this year to completely turn around into the most progressive time of your life so far.
Here's to hoping for an extraordinary year!
