NY: Day Five

Ang haba ng Day Five.

The night of Day Four, my mom + Ate Diday traded rooms with me
because their aircon wasn't working. (I already said that my mom
needs for the temperature to be at 16 degrees, so a broken aircon was a no-no)

It was a win-win situation though, because this was the room
I really wanted!!!

Had to dress up extra early that day because Ate Diday ordered
some groceries online and she didn't my help bringing everything
upstairs when the orders arrived.

French fries!!!

The lobby called us up at around 10am, so we went down to get our stuff.

There was a bag of frozen peas that didn't belong to us
and we didn't know what to do with it...

On other news, I organized all of the shopping bags we used so that we could
use them to wrap the steaks that Ate Diday and Kuya Dennis got from Costco

And theeeen, it was off to brunch. (Kuya Dennis is posing and Ate Diday doesn't get it)

He looks like an ad for whatever it is he's drinking

In the cab on the way to Sarabeth's, I took out all my coins and asked what I should do with them.
(I don't use my coins because I haven't gotten the hang of understanding
what a penny or a dime looks like and it would take me years to pay for something)
ANA: What do I do with these coins?
KUYA DENNIS: Ibigay mo kay Jackie Chan.

He was referring to this guy, who yes, is not Jackie Chan at all.
We'd been laughing about this video since we arrived in New York,
because it's always what they show first when you get on a Cathay flight.

We had two kinds of omelets at Sarabeth's, then I got out my pen and drew
this on our table (I love paper table covers)

Kuya Dennis went his own way and Ate Diday promised to take me to SoHo,
so we got in the first cab we saw.

CAB DRIVER: Ok sit here I just need to go to the bathroom

HE WAS NOT KIDDING - He disappeared for the next ten minutes.
We found it so funny that I had to draw it right that second

Yes guys, he came back. He drove us (pretty recklessly) to SoHo
and as usual, the first stop is Urban Outfitters!!! Hay naku the place I love the most

We didn't get to explore SoHo that much because it was already lunch time
and Mom was expecting us, so we got in a cab and look!
We found a whole street full of bead shops! My mom would have freaked out if she was there

We were pretty unlucky with the cab drivers we got that day... The one that took
us back to the hotel was giving another car the finger for getting in the way

Got Mom at the hotel and then walked to place-I-can't-remember
where Kuya Dennis, Ate Diday and I barely ate because we were still full from brunch.

Kuya Dennis was making me pick between space, a battleship, or history.
I chose battleship, so he said he would take me to the Intrepid Museum.

For some random reason he suddenly wanted to go there
through the subway, and he was very decided about it,
so I just followed him :-))

 "Tara, magsubway tayo!!!"

I took this while he was trying to understand the map
so we would know which train to take.

He didn't understand the map.

"... Cab nalang."

Lol we were down there at the subway station for around 3 minutes total


That's Matt, our tour guide

Look at this super sad edit I did hahahaha -
Guess where I stitched up the two photos!!!

These two materials can absorb really high temperatures, and
were used to cover Enterprise! We got to touch them!

Matt showing us a photo of a lady with that same material on her face
with a blowtorch on the other side

Tiny space shuttle for three people
(This was safer than Enterprise though, he said!)

Here's another photo of Enterprise. It was huuuge

On top of Intrepid, there were a lot of fighter planes

But this was the COOLEST.
It's called the Blackbird and I want it

There were a million more things in Intrepid but I don't want to talk about it anymore.
When we were done, we couldn't find a cab, so we decided to walk until we did.

That lady on the right shouted "Hey!" right after I passed by her and took her photo.
I thought she would get super enggry, but when I looked back at her,
she said, "I like your shoes!!!"

Ay! And a pigeon was crossing the road
(Apparently it knows how to follow the stoplight)

I found a crispy leaf!
I love stepping on these.
(Hallo Carlos :-h)

Blah blah blah can't remember what I had for dinner fast forward to after that -
WE WERE GOING TO WATCH ANNIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dad made me watch Annie when I was a kid and I super loved it
and I loved the songs and I was so excited to see it as a musical
and the little girl was so cute and THERE WAS REALLY A DOG
and Kuya Dennis was sleeping during the play!

Bawal magpicture inside the theater, ok?

Walked to a Duane Reade because the brothers were hungry

And theeeeen back to the hotel
Bryant Park was my sign that the hotel was near, ok
