Looking back......

I am not at all productive this week, spent so much time re-decorating another room, so maybe it is a  good time for....

Looking back

New York City - August 2012

There is so much of New York to take in, even I lived there for 8 years and went back to visit again and again,  I still can never tired of this wonderful city......

on this trip, hubby and I totally want to be tourist again, took the New York Water Taxi from South Street Seaport and went to the Williamsburg Flea by the East River.

got a gorgeous sight of the Brooklyn bridge on the ferry

and saw Frank Gehry's building from a distance, and the Freedom Tower was still under construction at that time

Williamsburg Flea is part of Brooklyn Flea

Dough - I heard they are good

I had these instead, fatty pork belly just looks good to me

old stuff, nice stuff

it is lucky that I always travel light and have no space for these stuff

other wise, will burn a big hole in my hubby's pocket

did get a box of these for 5 bucks though

we took a 45 minutes walk to Green point, where my favorite bakery is

Ovenly has the best sea salt chocolate cookies, yum!!!! If you are in Brooklyn, do stop by, they do sell these yummies at Joe's coffee in Manhattan

the park near Ovenly, great view of the Manhattan skyline

on the same trip, I also met up with Lauren, where I treated her at Alice Tea Cup on the upper west side for her birthday meal

Look! Lauren came with a plan too, we are going thrifting in the city together

and here are some of the goodies I brought home from NYC

a really really cool cookbook from the 60s, with real pink pages

ok, I gotta go, lots to do today, have a great Labor Day weekends my friend in the USA and for my friends overseas, have a fun one too!
