Picture taken at Pod39 Rooftop
New updates on the New York front. Basically more rooftop porn to sink your teeth into in my most recent facebook adds. Started out the afternoon with a little retail therapy at the usual suspects (Forever21, Sephora and Urban Outfitters), continuing on after to Haven Rooftop for lunch. I’ve gotta say, hands down, best truffle fries EVA. The view was aright. Not as great as Le Bain, but I had no complaints. To be honest, I was very surprised a place like Haven even existed in Times Square. With the incessant hustle and bustle of the city, it was nice to find a quiet spot like Haven to escape. Definitely will return.
After lunch, we then walked down a couple of blocks over to Pod 39, which was also another rooftop establishment. I’d been meaning to check this place out for months and was so excited to finally see it. When we got there, the bar downstairs was absolutely packed and if you weren’t already on the guestlist, you had to wait like everyone else. They were at full capacity at that point, and weren’t letting anyone up until they had some vacancies. The woman at the podium was extremely accommodating though. Initially she told us we had to give our names and phone numbers and that she’ll contact us when they’re ready. I explained that we were from Singapore and didn’t have an American number. She realized we were obviously not from here, and decided to bump us up to the top of the list saying, “Come back in 20 mins.” And true enough, she stamped us in shortly after. I was so happy to escape the nightmare of the crowd I tipped her a 20.
A friend of mine named Julian who, funnily enough, I met last year in New York on one of the nights I’d gone out clubbing, came and joined us for a drink. Was great catching up! Always nice seeing familiar faces on my travels over a couple of beers and gin and tonics.
We ended the night around 10? On the way back, we walked past a psychic and since I was a little intoxicated, I figured, mehh why not. So I got a tarot card reading done and paid 20 bucks for it. Being New York and all, I obviously didn’t get much out of my session, just a lot of generic statements and stuff about my aura. David thinks I’m nuts. First astrology, now psychics. Boys just don’t understand.
Anyways, New York’s been fantastic. Not looking forward to working back, but I guess its safe to say, I am missing my man. Just booked my free ticket to Brisbane so David and I get a couple of extra days together. We’ll be leaving for Brisbane once I get back. Glad its all worked out. I always get excited whenever we travel together. And even though it’s only a week, I’m just happy we get to spend more time together before having to succumb to long distance again till Christmas.
Alright well, this post has gone on long enough. Time for a power nap. Gotta start getting ready for work in an hour. Just shoot me.
Peace in x
