NYC: Central Park Tradition meets Technology

Zoë: May I take your photograph with you holding your cell phones?
Three Jewish Guys sort of upset: WHY??!!
Zoë: Because the juxtaposition of tradition and technology is so great!
Three Jewish Guys: Well, OK.

NYC: Great Mothers Day

On Mothers Day I got to sleep in. Then Rob made breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast AND cleaned up the dishes.

By noon I was getting cabin fever so I suggested to we go to Central Park. First we stopped at the plaza hotel to visit the painting of Eloise like I always did when I was a kid. Then just because I've never done this, I suggested we go on a horse and carriage ride through Central Park. $34 for 20 minutes. Then we followed Maya as she lead us on a loop through the park. We stopped at a playground, climbed a big rock, listened to some live music, walked past Strawberry field... We were going to go boating but I decided that since we were running out of time we might be better off going to eat at one of my recent favorite restaurants - Fatty Crab's - Malaysian food. It reminds me a little bit of Singaporean cuisine.

NYC: Lula's Mothers Day Ghost Story Painting

Ghost Story by Lula Barracano.


There was a ghost drinking blood and the ghost was a girl.  She was wearing pink clothes and she was walking to the playground with her kid.  Her kid was named Charlotte and they walked up the stairs to the playground and then her and her kid were heading home after the playground and then when they got home they made some lemonade blood.  It was pink.

Their house, on the inside of it, is covered with pink blood.


And they had pink flowers on the pink blood.


And then they ran to the F playground by Aunt Josephine’s.

The end.

NYC: TriBeCa Film Festival

After watching everyone else in SoHo go to TriBeCa film festival parties, I got the bug and told Rob that I wanted to go to one too.
He told me to call Isen who invited us to go with him that night. There was also a Belvedere Vodka party on the ground floor of our building that I got invited to since we live here - but we ran out of time to go to that one. The TriBeca party started at 10pm and was in SoHo. We went promptly at ten but were told they weren't ready yet (my sleepy clock was ticking). I introduced myself to the door men Jeff and Christian and when we returned there was a crowd but they waved us to the front. By chance we ran into two friends of Rob's and I got to pull them in with us. I felt so IN. The party had LIVE artists painting and haircuts (extremely slow ones). The music was fun and the drinks - as long as they were alcoholic, were free. I had a blast. We asked a guy doing an event photog gig into taking a photo of us. Afterall, its not often that I get dressed up to go out these days.
