Finding myself back and forth like a crabby crab.....

...This title does not make sense as they walk left and right, i felt like involving a crustacian in my blog since ya know they're cool, not-to-mention the fact that my magnetic crabby on my desk jiggles with every slamming type I make on the keyboard. LOOKIT HIM GO MA!

Yesh, I is back. Back from where you ask? EVERYWHERE. Specifically, New York. The land of a thousand meals, sights, sounds and purchases. It must be noted that I had a might fine time, seeing the two specifics I wish to see in all countries:

1. Zoo

2. Natural History Museum.


Before I ramble about both of these places, I should probably mention that the entire atmosphere of New York was just a totally awesome, bodacious place and they have, like, the BEST and most HUGE pizzas :P It was fantastic long weekend (Not enuff time plz anufa wk plz, k thnx!) with so much packed into it. This is also to say it was spent with awesome-tastic company, that were luckily not bothered by my constant photographic addiction.

I have spent like, two days editting/uploading photographs, so I will give you the highlights :D

St.Patrick's Cathedral. It was SO hard to pick my favourite photo from this place, as the whole structure was so astounding! I had to wedge inbetween two structures to get this.

Photobucket
This maybe a regular day-to-day experience for most New Yorkers, but for me it was pretty interesting; The Subway :D

Central Park Zoo! Of course, one the major stops that must be made, I mean, it had Tamanduas AND Red Pandas, how awesome is that?! There were also polar bears and rolling seals for show. Not a huge zoo, but definitely worth the trip because of the layout, enclosures and selection of animals ^_^

Disney Store New York! Of course, a capital of the world has to give something special to the Disney fans out there. I flailed my limbs like a crazy person when I saw the shops sign and dived right on in! The decor was amazing, like a minature Disneyland, with an added third artist floor. This is where you can find fine art paintings featuring your favourite tales and characters; I fell in love with the Beauty and the Beast one that is above. There were many other classics and even a chance to get your photo taken with Donald and Mickey - JOY!

Rockerfeller Building at night, ok, I need a drum roll for these next pictures because they are hella rockin'!

Beautiful, no? The big ol' purple building is the Empire State Building. When I stepped out I gasped and heck, maybe even a little eye waterage, since I thought I'd never see something like this in my life. Made me feel all giddy and schtuff ^_^ Now for some awesome mood lighting photos featuring people faces!
