I have a love-hate relationship with New York, most of the time I love it, the times I do hate it is when it’s winter or when the subway station smells like pee. New Yorkers are really generous with their compliments (although I am also inclined to believe that Americans and Europeans are generally more generous with their compliments, Singaporeans just stare. BE WARNED).

Captain America! Hnggggg

Belvedere Castle in Central Park

I had the chance to visit the Met for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition before it ends.

The Met remains one of my favorite museums to date. There were a few Rodin pieces on exhibit along the queue for the Savage Beauty exhibition.

There’s no photography allowed in the exhibition, I did manage to sneak one photo where the camera is at the right height and angle. Tears were streaming down my face as I was walking through the exhibition, if you saw a crazy girl like that, it’s probably me. It was so overwhelming and I was so glad I took the time to go down for it.

Crazy installation made me look pixellised. πŸ˜€ I am easily amused.

NYC is a city with plenty of awesome architecture. I can see why Ted Moseby is so in love with it.

  3. i think it’s an asian mentality to stare. we’re not ones to give out compliments too easily. but speaking of compliments, i really like your wide leg trousers in one of your older posts. wish i could pull it off

    Yeah I agree, I feel very comfortable in Tokyo though. There’re so many outlandish dressers there but it’s so interesting to watch!! I could only pull off those trousers cause I wore really really high shoes! Otherwise, I’d be stumpy looking! Thank you so much for your compliment. :)

    Umm, I got the book from the exhibition itself.

    Those people complimenting you were tourists or transplants. Real New Yorkers are too jaded by life and the other 8 million people living there (plus the odd million or so tourists) to care about little else than their own lives.

    Funny how the tourists are working in Barney’s Co-op and Helmut Lang. Are you from New York? πŸ˜€
