Before I get into what I did today, I want to show you guys the tie dye shirt my roommate helped me make the other night! It came out really cool and vivid. I kind of want to make more. : )
Anyway, Michael and I drove into Queens today. My old cell phone charm broke the other week, so I was looking to replace it. And what other place should I turn to besides Flushing? It’s a great place to find unique things. We must have visited about eight different “cute and girly” stores before I found one I really liked. It was in Morning Glory on Roosevelt Avenue & Main St. that I found this super cute Hello Kitty charm. Michael was a dear and bought it for me. <3
Doesn’t it look so darling on my cell phone? :3
For lunch, we ate at a restaurant called Chao Zhou – I’ve eaten there three times before with other friends. Although usually crowded, I highly recommend it! It’s located on 40-52 Main Street. It’s the corner restaurant with no English on any of its red signs. Today, I ordered the lunch special of marinated soy sauce duck over rice. So delicious!
We also ordered some bubble tea (milk tea w/ tapioca) from Sago, which is a few blocks away. I came to the realize that the coconut flavor is soooooo good! *drools* We walked around a lot, too, but none of that is really significant. :P Since we were pretty much done with Flushing, we drove to Roosevelt Field Mall because we were incredibly tired of the pathetic Smith Haven Mall.
I really needed a new jacket, since I don’t really have anything warmer than what I currently have, without being as thick as my winter coat. I found the perfect one in a grey peacoat at Forever 21. I was surprised that it was only $34! :o And from what I could tell, the material is warm and sturdy. ;D
I was also looking for a pair of armwarmers, since I hate wearing long sleeves. If I could have it my way, I’d wear tanktops all the time. Fortunately, I found a pair of gloves that double as gloves AND armwarmers at H&M. They’re really soft, and were pretty cheap. Despite what color you see these as in the photos below, they’re actually a deep purple/maroon. They can unfold to become super long!
After leaving the mall, I remembered that my family was throwing a party at my house in honor of the Pacquiao boxing match tonight. It was a pretty spontaneous decision to spend the rest of the evening partying it up Filipino-style. Tons of delicious food, time with family, and playing of Rock Band 3 with the kids. Unfortunately, I have no photos from the party. I just got back on campus an hour ago, and I’m pretty exhausted. I had a great time today, though, and wouldn’t mind making this a regular thing. By that, I mean bringing my boyfriend over my house for dinner every other week. : ) Goodnight!
