I almost backed out of the opportunity to witness the city that never sleeps. Thanks to people at work and some cousins who made me change my mind. I agree that it would be one decision I will forever regret if ever I didn't go. Liza's family has been extremely nice and accommodating.
The long agonizing wait was finally over. From Manila - Tokyo - LA ...
I enjoyed my stop at NWA lounge then headed to LA. The I-Phone failed me in Japan but thank god it worked in the US or I would have been unreachable for the next 3 weeks. :o While on the plane, when we were about to land, I looked outside the window full of intense excitement. Lights were simply all over. Too bad I couldn’t capture the scene as it was.
I finally reached my destination - New York. =) eeeeek!
Liza and Tito Robert fetched me at the airport that night. I finally got to meet Tia who was the source of joy to the entire house and the rest of Liza's family. I had the chance to explore their neighborhood at Queens / Forrest Hills and even the Austin area. We had to work from 7 till 430. Then the exploration began @ night. Good thing the sun was still up around 5PM. We were supposed to go to Fifth Avenue but ended up in Times Square! I was speechless, in awe, and shutter high at that point in time. What was once a childhood dream all of sudden turned into reality! Woot! =) It was just like the scenes in the movies. I didn't want to wake up from all the dreaming. =)
Too sleepy and jet lagged to type further. We did Battery Park today. Plus we're watching a play tom. Too bad Wicked was still full but I'm still looking forward to the Little Mermaid with Liz!
All about the traveling Queen who wanted to share with the world the little and great discoveries that have brought her joy.
