New York Part 2

Amado pretty much had our trip planned out. As far as he's concerned, as long he knew what was for breakfast, lunch and dinner then everything is good to go.
The only thing I asked him for was a day at the Met. A day is not enough to enjoy this gigantic museum and I loved every minute of it. I would definitely love to come back to this place as well as
 MOMA, Whitney and Guggenheim.
Too bad we missed the Kusama's Fireflies at the Whitney.

Blair minus her minions (back in high school).

He forced me to smile, ACA-awkward (If you've watched Pitch Perfect then you'll get it).

That one time Tim Gunn took us to the Met for inspiration for the avant-garde challenge.
Yeah, I pretended I was with them.

I took my time looking for the "perfect" stranger to take our photo.
I rarely let people use my camera but I really wanted at least one photo of us together.

Seems like New York is so much greener than California.

Dowager Countess of Grantham, is that you?

Yes, per Amado we HAD to visit Dean & Deluca for lunch.

Day three was the day when I started to miss Juku and Kami. We kept on seeing dogs walking by us.
I said "Hello" to every dog that we saw and I might have made a couple of the owners feel awkward doing it in my "talking to a puppy" voice.
And a chic lady riding around on a scooter with her Prada bag while on her cellphone wearing heels. Werk!

Another one that made me miss our girls. He looks like a bigger version of Kami.

Amado's lunch, my chicken pot pie didn't travel so well. I still enjoyed it though especially with Amado's $7 chips. That's right, $7. I would have settled for a vending machine but I was with Amado and there's no point trying to convince him. We took our food and found a spot in Central Park to enjoy our meal.

And another one!

Here's that shot of Amado.

See, its the littlest things that makes us happy.

Tomas Saraceno's Cloud City at the Met's rooftop garden.

We brought other pairs of shoes but we pretty much stuck with our Free Runs.
I still swear by them that they're the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn.
I just need to find me an all silver 2.0s and I'll be a happy camper.

We stopped by Laduree for some French macarons before heading to a Starbucks to charge our phones. 
We did that several times during our trip. Once we met up with Makoy, we headed on over to Jeepney for dinner. Again, Maharlika and Jeepney, we need one in LA!
My Bicol Express with SanMig and Amado and Makoy's Chori Burger (Longanisa meat!).
Also made a pitstop at Van Leeuwen for some ice cream.
What? We were in the area and I NEEDED ice cream.
