Dear Diary....while I've been away from blogger.....

Excuse me for my absence...it has been more than a month
and how I miss all my blogger buddies (I'm trying to catch up on all your posts ladies)...
some might be interested to know what I've been up to while I was away....
so this is an update of what my May & June was like....

WEEK 1
We went to NYC!!This was the same day as the car bomb attempt in Times Square...we really didn't know anything about it...until we got home and I'm sure was glad we got home safely....
Beautiful Day in NYC, Me & Hubby at Bryant Park,
Macarons at Koryodang, Central Park with Aunt


This Turkey Burger at Loeb Boathouse in Central Park is oh, so good....

Central Park's Conservatory Water, with hubby & aunt in Brooklyn Bridge....

WEEK 2
We had dinner with some friends in one of our current favorite chinese restaurant
here in Pennsylvania...ASIA at Allentown...
and here's my favorite dish...huge meatballs called Lion's Head


then on our way to a friends house we saw a rainbow and I was like "c'mon lets find the end of it" haha...I know I'm an Idiot....

On Sunday we went to Longwood Gardens...it was so beautiful there....
it's a paradise for people who loves flowers...




WEEK 3
Sister and her family arrived from the Philippines....so I played tourist guide....aren't they lucky? they have a tourist guide & a photographer at the same time...but I had fun....it's been years since I last saw them...and my one & only nephew is all grown-up....
Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, Inside MET with my nephew....

Goofing around at FAO Schwarz, Strawberry Fields,
Times Square with Nieces, View from Empire State Bldg


Hershey Park, Feeding a Llama at Kitchen Kettle Village,
Strasburg Rail Road, Philadelphia


WEEK 4
Gambled at Atlantic City but wasn't so lucky....Visited Family in Maryland......Baltimore....Annapolis.....Washington DC...
I haven't been this tired my whole life.....

Atlantic city beach, Ceasars Palace, Maryland State house, Our Boo-chi boy....

National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, US Capitol

WEEK 5
We went back to NYC and had one last day to be with them before they go back to Cali....so we went out with cousins and had a great time.....

(Clockwise)View of NYC & Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn, Nyonya,
Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, Brooklyn Bridge


the next day we drive them to the airport and my poor sister cried.....:( now I miss them so....

when we arrived home guess what's waiting for me......Dina's Surprise Package........look at what she sent me......I was like screaming when I opened it....so much masks, goodies & the canmake nudy glow lipgloss that I've been wanting for a long time...
Thanks Dina **hugs**and Congratulations...For the whole week.......
I was packing all our stuff as we were moving to a different apartment..
it's just a few blocks from our old one but it's much bigger & better....

WEEK 6
Time for our move to a new apartment.....
and for a week I don't have any net & cable access....so I've finished a book for one day and I've decoupage a plastic drawer....what you can do when you're bored, huh'....haha....

I like it so much that now I'm planning to buy the Fira drawer from Ikea and decoupage it....

that's it for now.....goodnight!!!!
