The 30 Days Blog Challenge, Day 13: “Start spreading the news…I’m leaving today!”

Day 13 – Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.

Any one close to me can blurt out in a second the one place I’d love to visit… NEW YORK!!!

I sure do!

I sure do!

One of my life goals is to go to New York. It seems a little petty to categorize it as a life goal; but you see, I haven’t been out of the continent of Asia plus I’ve pined for NY since I was a kid. Blame it on the movies and books which I’ve watched and read through the years; most of which was set in New York. Blame it on Lea Salonga and “Miss Saigon”. Blame it on F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Blame it on my love for twinkling lights, people-watching and wonderful chaos.

Apart from the moolah, the only thing hindering me to buy a ticket and fly out for NY is the fact that I don’t have a US Visa yet. Yikes! I’ve started to research about it and will be applying for one soon. I’m crossing my fingers and praying that it would be a smooth process.

If I finally get a chance to step on the hustling and bustling streets of the Big Apple, I’d:

  • Go watch the sunrise with Lady Liberty

  • Stand by the infamous Times Square and be mesmerized by the twinkling lights
TS at night.

  • Watch broadway plays.
What to watch?

  • Ride a bike crossing the Brooklyn bridge

  • Lose myself in a book in the Grand Central Library

  • Walk around the Greenwich Village and hunt for the F.R.I.E.N.D.S apartment
The FRIENDS apartment!

  • Watch people come and go in the Grand Central Terminal.

  • Sit on a bench underneath a tree in Central Park with my pen and journal, scribbling whatever pops into my mind.
Park.

Park.

  • Ride the subway going anywhere.
Mind the gap!

Mind the gap!

  • Wear a pretty dress and drop by The Plaza just to see what the fuss all those romantic comedies want to show
Ain't life grand?

  • Indulge in the best pizzas in New York
From Lombardi's Pizzeria.

  • Go up the Empire State building

*sighs*

There are still a lot more to discover in New York. I’m still going through the guidebook my boyf gave me as a present before. Leafing through its pages, the guidebook has been my source for my wonderful imagined adventures in NY.

How about you? Where would you like to go? 🙂
