New York Photo Diary: Day 1, March 25th

Day 1: Coming from a red eye flight with hardly any sleep, we touched down at JFK Sunday morning, had a light dimsum lunch and unpacked. With no luck trying to catch up on some sleep, we spent the afternoon at Eataly in the Flatiron district, did some shopping, followed by a sumptuous BBQ dinner with cousins at Hill Country BBQ Market, and a nightcap at the ever-so-popular Cafe Lalo in the upper West side. Definitely a full 1st day!

Double Celebration

The past week has been hectic, hence the lack of posts. A and I celebrated our 10th year anniversary with a quick weekend vacay, then came back to ring in Camille’s 19th birthday! (Yup, she’s a Halloween baby!)

I had an extra day to my holiday weekend due to the fact that I was off work on Tuesday following the 4th of July. No, it’s not because I needed a “recovery” day. It was student & parent orientation @ FIDM. As we entered the school premises and were welcomed with this (photo below), it truly kicked in that my pumpkin is now officially a college student.

With all the activities lined up for the day, I took in (for the nth time) everything I could possibly absorb, including the awesome displays and installations along the corridors.

FIDM alum and one of my favorite designers, Monique Lhuillier’s work was one of the many highlights on display.

The library is chockful of reference material, including the largest Vogue collection dating back to January 1938.

I sometimes find myself scratch my head in amazement how the heck has time gone by so quickly. Seriously. None, I repeat, NONE of my friends have kids in college, much less high school. Well, except for my bff’s son (and my godson) who recently started his freshman year in high school. Seeing Camille start on this new adventure brings me so much pride and joy. (Did I really sound that cliché-ish?). Given all the hardships that solo parenting brings, it definitely is worth everything. (And yet again, another cliché!).

Is there anyone out there in her mid-30s going through the same thing?

iPhone Outtakes

My honey & I did the engagement photos of my niece in Laguna Beach over the weekend. In between takes, I managed to snap some outtakes from my iPhone.
