NYC + Food Porn + Love Packages

A few weeks ago hubby and I went to New York City.....weekends gets too boring here in our current place and we are craving for some good food....
first stop:
Mitsuwa
595 River Rd.
Edgewater, NJ 07020

Everytime we go to NYC we have to stop by here...we had Ramen for lunch and went to get some groceries and stop by Sanseido bookstore to look for some magazines...here's my loot....

(The Face Shop Post-Acne Night Spot Eraser was bought at NYC's Face shop store)
CanCam May 2010

Creamyaki at Oishinbo
Battery Tunnel around 3:45pm on our way to brooklyn...

then park the car and took the subway to manhattan.....

I had to stop by The Face Shop to get the Post-Acne Night Spot Eraser which unfortunately didn't work on my skin.... then dinner at....

NY Kom Tang Soot Bul Kal Bi
32 W 32nd St, New York 10001
(Btwn Broadway & 5th Ave)

we had what else?korean bbq...I had the Deungshim Gul (grilled sirloin steak) and raymund had
Samkyupsal Gul (grilled slices of Pork), the food was ok....but the service was great, the waiter was so helpful and the funny thing is at first he was talking to us in korean, I was like what???? he even gave us this steamed egg dish on the house and the best thing about it...the price is so affordable....

after dinner I was so excited to go shopping but then hubby told me he's not feeling well (sucks!) so we went back home instead....major disappointment!!!

the next day we went to church with auntie & uncle....here's raymund playing around while waiting.....

then we had lunch in one of our fave....

Nyonya Malaysian Cuisine
5323 54th Street, 8th Avenue,
Brooklyn, NY 11220

this is the best malaysian restaurant in brooklyn in our opinion....we had Roti canai, Curry Beef Stew Casserole, Sarang Burong and Malaysian Style Spareribs and Malaysian Ice Tea...honestly everything were so good!!! They said service sucks here but really I didn't care at all I was so busy eating, hehe....

Homemade Roti Canai Indian Pancake
Sarang Burong
(shaped fried taro stuffed with shrimp, chicken corn, snow peas & black mushroom topped with cashew nuts, oh so good)

Spareribs Malaysian Style
that's it for our weekend....I think I gained another few pounds....

Love Package:
Thank you so much to May!!!for sending me these goodies....Canmake blushes has always been on my wishlist and May was so sweet to send me the cream blush in 01.....she even included some matcha milk tea...which I've been craving for a long time....more masks :D and an elf brush to try...thanks May for being my fairy godmother for a day...I love everything.....

and remember the last time I told you about Diane of Orange to LA's blogsale which in my opinion is one of the best...well, she added some new stuff again and luckily I got her VOV Castledew blush and lipstick first...hehe...when I saw it....I immediately emailed her...and check out the package there's two castledew lipstick in there....she gave me the second one for free....and even added some masks & a sample handcream...Thank you so much Diane....


and lastly I won birkie's early spring-birdy giveaway :D
and look at what I got......
I was so excited when I opened the package....
Thank you Birkie!!!so much new makeup to play with....
and does anyone know birkie's mailing address????

Me and raymund decided not to go to Outerbanks,NC with family this week because of his work so I'm a bit disappointed as I've been looking forward to it.....so the family sent us some pics to make us jealous.... here's my nephew currently enjoying the beach....
jealous much.....:(

oh well, that's it for now.....
have a great week everyone.....


XOXO,
Iris
