New York! New York! |纽约!纽约! | 紐約!紐約!

San Francisco to Hong Kong to New York in less than a week, not fun. Specially the heinously long flight from HK to NY. That sucked except that I ran into Russell Wong and his wife(yes, that Russell Wong) at my stopover in Seoul. He gave me a Chinese taxi service number that I ended up having to use when my arranged ride from JFK didn't show up. Thanks Russell and Flora!

Been here two days and am just settling in. Walking rocks! I love walking around, something I don't do in HK anymore. My legs and back are sore as hell but it's awesome gettting to know the city this way. I haven't even used the subway yet but plan to do that tomorrow. New York is so rad.

Can't figure out how to turn this upright(web guys,help?) so tilt your head to the left. This is one big ass piece of meat. I've seen these at shwarma joints before but this one is big!! I walked past it and had to do a double take.

This is my best-friend from architecture school Dan. He designed that place in the background. It's the Aveda institute. Looks cool on the inside, too bad it wasn't open. We went to some crappy bar to watch the De La Hoya- Mayweather fight. We paid $20 to get in and there were no chairs or air conditioning in the joint. We were stupid and forgot there were undercard fights so we stood for 3 hours watching lousy fights before the main event. When we got out, we were sweatier and more tired than either De La Hoya or Mayweather.

Overall, I am liking New York a lot. It definitly kicks LA's ass.

|不到一周的時間從三藩到香港再到紐約,不好玩。尤其是香港到紐約討厭的長途飛行,除了在漢城轉機時我跑去找王盛德和他妻子(是的,是你說的那個王盛德)。他給了我一張中國出租車服務的號碼,這樣我從 JFK機場沒有找到預先租好的出租車時剛好用上了。謝謝 Russell和 Flora!

呆了 2天,才剛安頓下來。散步真舒服!我喜歡到處走走,在香港從沒散過步。我的腿和背痛得不行,但這是認識這座城市的極好辦法。我沒坐過地鐵,但明天打算去試試。紐約真的太棒了。

不曉得要怎樣把這張照片豎起來(網站的朋友們,幫個忙?)要不你把頭往左邊側著看吧。這是一塊巨大的肉。我曾經看過 shwarma大塊肉,但這個更大!我路過之後又退回來好好看它。

這是我建築學校的最好的朋友 Dan。後面的 Aveda學院就是他設計的。裏面很酷,但很可惜今天沒開。我們去了一個很差勁的酒吧看 De La Hoya對 Mayweather的拳擊賽,付了 20美元進去,裏面連沒有椅子和空調都沒有。我們太傻了,忘了這是拳擊賽,我們站了 3個小時,在正式比賽前看噁心的拳擊。出來時滿身大汗,比 De La Hoya和 Mayweather還要累。

總的來說,我更喜歡紐約。比洛杉磯強多了。

Hey Dan, I fixed up the images and links a bit. They weren't quite showing up at first post. Next time you see Russell and Flora tell them howdy from me. Russell and I used to train together with He Jing De back in L.A. a few years back. (Not that you'll be seeing him anytime soon .... )

Summers in NYC are similar to HK, aren't they? Also the grime and noise and people to land ratio (ok, not sure about that one). There's no reason you wouldn't feel very much at home. You're probably going to spot a lot of Hollywood celebs, so please keep a running tab and tell us who you see. The Olsen twins (haha, like they're hot), Gwynnie, Jaky, Natalie; they're crawling all over the place. Tell us how the first day of class goes. To be critiqued by your peers, performing exercises e.g. show how a flower grows, etc. haha.

NY weather is UNPREDICTABLE! it was COLD yesterday....probably warmer this week! "When we got out, we were sweatier and more tired than either De La Hoya or Mayweather." <--tht CRACKS ME UP!!!! LOL!!!! don't use subway. enjoy the daylight above the street as much as you can in NY. it's ALWAYS beautiful. subway can be as sweaty as your bar experience!!! i don't know any place in West Village to recommend for sports game, but i usually go to Billiards in Chinatown to watch the NBA playoffs. 2 plasma, few billiard tables, and nice sweet pretty fun bartenders!!! the place is huge! but they don't serve hard alcohol. mostly sake and wine. beer of course. (wondering...will i bump into you?? hahaha!!)

Not sure how long you'll be in NY but you'll never get bored for sure. There are tons of things to do and eat in NY. You should definitely see some broadway shows when you have a chance.

Wow so much travelling around. From SF to Hong Kong to New York. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun, though. Also that's one voluminous piece of meat. It has the same shape as a lotus root. haha

you think walking in NYC is tiring?? i actually think it's more tiring walking in HK. my friends chauffeured us around when we visited NYC so we were able to skip out on a lot of walking and plus they had taxi everywhere. in HK, i tried hailing a taxi, but most of them are taken. of course, you're prolly used to the special treatment of having a driver pick you up most of the time or you drive yourself. i cannot live without a car!

That's a gyro bro. I can't eat those anymore. Maybe when I was a teen. It looks like you were walking around Sullivan Street. They place looks somewhat familar. One of those kebob stores. Also, how did you avoid the pot dealers around the entrances? Somehow I seem to attract them. Don't know why...
