where the trade happens

Wall St., Financial District, Lower Manhattan 

New York Stock Exchange

The Charging Bull - as you can see, clearly very popular, for a bit of luck in the 'Bull Market'!

Trinity Church fighting its place amongst the skyscrapers...

may peace be with you

Survivors' Stairs
The Slurry Wall
Twin Tower 'tridents'

They say "a picture speaks a thousand words", however in this case, no such picture can fully express the feeling during the visit to the memorial museum in NYC

...a tour through the Upper East Side
The Empire Hotel
Inside the Empire Hotel
New York's one and only Cupcake ATM!! Sprinkles
Candy wonderland - Dylan's Candy Bar
Hot dogs, sweet!
Entering Dylan's is really like entering a house made of candy, here we have the floor made of candy

I want my floor to look like this! Even better if you can open the floor and have a piece of candy :)
Celeb candy boxes, filled with their favourite candies

Giant lollies, taller than me!
Every girls' dream - Harry Winston

Living the luxury life - Henri Bendel
Disney, Times Square (not quite upper east side glamour, but it's Disney! and a very very large Disney store!)

Went through the Upper East side with On Location Tours - Gossip Girl tour, this is a brilliant way to explore the city and the Upper East side, and if you're a fan of Gossip Girl, then this is a must attend tour tracing the footsteps of Blair and Serena!! 

And we'll have to finish with a Blair Waldorf quote, it's only appropriate for a 'glamour' post:
"whoever said money doesn't buy happiness didn't know where to shop"
- Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl

the land of opportunities

Have you ever seen another plane while on board of your own flight? If I was just a few minutes quicker, then the plane would be at least 5 times larger in size! Quite extraordinary especially after just waking up and seeing a large plane by my side! 

Lady Liberty is possibly the best symbol of the USA, just like the people in the queue in this picture, all those years ago, this was the beacon of hope for many people coming to the land of opportunities eager to fulfil their own American dream...

 ...and now, the people have created this vibrant, energetic and beautiful city!  
New York City, USA
