1st half of my U.S. Trip

Here is the missing blog that I wrote last week and it was actually written on May 19th, 2007

I LOVE NEW YORK!

well...here I am in the big city writing this blog and sipping my chai vanilla with a blueberry muffin..(which I feel guilty about but..I'm on vacation..sort of...right?)  I'm at this really cute coffee shop in the West village called Grey Dog Coffee.  It's a very cute little coffee shop with a sort of NY feel to it....I came here yesterday with my friend Ajay and they had a really nice omelet...the coffee...was ok...not HOT enough though.  Anyways....my trip this time is especially for my little brother, Harry who will be graduating at USF this week.  I decided that I'd take a trip to LA and NY before swinging by SF....why not?  right?  Well...I got a great deal that only cost me $7,000 HK ..BUT...economy class can be really tiring for my knees....I usually can sleep the entire plane ride...but..there were some struggles this trip.  Luckily, I had my dearest sis with me to chat with when we were both restless.  

My trip to LA was mainly to spend with my best friend Karen because it was her birthday.  We had a nice time together and mostly worried about where to eat...ha!  We did take a nice 7mi  hike in Arroyo Secco...and then balanced it off with some authentic Mexican food!  ...which kept me full for the rest of the day....

Now..I'm in NY and I have only been here for 2 days but they have been VERY productive days.  I started off my day in NY by losing my semi pro digital camera!  I was sooo upset!  I think  that when I was half sleeping on the plane, I reached into my backpack to get my jacket..and it must have fallen out when I did that...the worst part was that when I was leaving the plane...I had this gut feeling that I should double check to see if I left anything...but, of course, not wanting to annoy the people in the line by attempting to go back to where I was sitting...I kept on walking thinking that I didn't leave anything.  DUMB DUMB DUMB!!!!  Anyways...cousin Jean (whom I call xiao ni ni) picked me up from the airport so that I could hang out with her and cousin Jeff..and see my nephew Xiao Jie for the first time...the whole time I could only think about my camera and I think it practically ruined my first day.  This is a lesson to go with my gut feelings next time.  Who cares if I trouble others, right?  

   So..I finally was able to get past my clumsiness and realize that there are worst things in life that could be lost...at least a camera is just money, right?  

   I had a great day yesterday rollerblading in the city...for about 4 hrs!  The weather here is soooo beautiful!  The sun is out the sky is blue (for the most part)...and there is a nice cool breeze in the air....After rollerblading... I even took a dance class with my favorite teacher here.  And at night,  I topped off the beautiful day with a nice dinner with my dear friend Tony Vincent...who is a VERY good singer and performer.  He is currently recording his own album and it's very difficult for him because he too is an indie artist.  It's a shame when you see talent that isn't appreciated like it should be....Oh...and here is a bonus...we were getting off the subway when I realized that I didn't have my phone with me!  Yes....clumsy Marsha does it again!  However, this time I was lucky because we called up the restaurant and I had left it there...so...thank goodness for that!  

So...today I'll take it easy because I think I'm catching a cold....not good at all....I still have 2 shows to watch while I'm here.  "Wicked" and "Jersey Boys"...I'm VERY excited!
