I'm sooooo excited! I actually wasn't planning to go to New York so soon. I mean, I had plans in mind to go in the fall when I find a new job after this current one ends. Originally I was suppose to go on a family trip during labour day weekend in September but that got canceled because my mom is currently receiving EI and she wouldn't get paid if she goes on vacation. Then my friend asked me if I wanted to join her New York trip in August and since I'll be unemployed for awhile and have been working non-stop this whole summer, I thought I should treat myself to a well deserved trip! I am going from August 15-18th.
Here are some of the places I want to visit during my New York trip.
TIMES SQUARE. Of course will b a must see and visit place!
I also want to visit this love sculpture located in the midtown of New York. This love sculpture has become a new icon sighting place for travelers! I've been seeing sooooo many pictures being posted on instagram and it makes me want to go too.
Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller are also the main sight seeing places in New York!
I also want to visit the TOYS R US store in Times Square and ride this ferris wheel!
And lastly I want to visit this Japanese supermarket called "Mitsuwa Marketplace" that is actually located in New Jersey. It is the LARGEST Japanese supermarket in the United States with 9 stores located in different cities. One of the main reason why I want to go there is they sell everything from Japan from food, home essentials, skincare products and makeup, books and magazines and just about everything! They also have a mall there with some Japanese stores that sell various unique things and it's just like as if you're in Japan! After doing some research online, there is actually a shuttle bus that I can take from Manhattan that will take me there and the bus ride is only 30 minutes! Ahhh...I can't wait to go. I'm gonna be buying LOADS of Japanese skincare and makeup products there. And maybe some sweets, candies and snack food too! =D
Some of the food and little restaurants that they have at the marketplace. *DROOLS*
There is also a Kinokuniya bookstore and Shiseido store nearby the marketplace as well.
