24th-26th Feb 2013
Feb 24th: Brooklyn Nets Vs Memphis Grizzles
So Kris’s parents (I now call them Maaaaa and Pop!) are in town chilling with us after the wedding so we took them sight seeing.
So today I’m grateful for going to yet another NBA game, I’m liking those professional basketball games I’m tellin’ ya!
Hee Hee. Kris’s dad is a huge sports fan, so he was very happy. However, like Kris he’s very even keeled and you couldn’t see the enthusiasm, if you didn’t know him well. Very interesting to see how Kris is really very much like his father, but yet very similar to him Mom in other ways. I would say that Kris is an even mix between the two.
We walked around Brooklyn/Williamsburg during the day and passed by Borough Hill where all the Hasidic Jews were celebrating Purim. It was very interesting to see such a different culture. I wasn’t so pleased when I saw a sign that said, ‘Women’s entrance’ on the backdoor and the Men’s on the Front Door. But every culture is different, who am I to judge?
I’m just glad I was born a woman in Singapore!
Feb 25th: Central Park/Ichiro Sushi/Salmon Fish Dinner
Today we relaxed a little, (Kris’s parents) They went to the Museum of Natural History in the morning and then we had a nice walk to Central Park before going to Ichiro Sushi. I
forced/coerced them into suggested Sushi because its my favourite foods. I’m happy that they liked it after all!
Then we came home at night and I made them a nice dinner. My own mother would be pleased that I’m carrying out my daughter in law duties dutifully. She has been asking me if I do take care of my in laws when they are here. I guess in the Asian culture, it reflects badly on the parents if their daughter doesn’t serve their in laws. Haha. I’m so glad I got American parents! No expectations of servitude whatsoever!!!!! Then again, that’s a very antiquated way of thinking even in Singapore, most modern parents don’t expect that anymore. Or so I think!
Feb 26th: Laundry + Chillax day
I just got back from the train station after sending my new Maaa and Pop to Penn Station. It was wonderful having them over and I’m glad we got to spent lots of time wandering along the streets of New York together. Its a lovely city, I’m falling in love with this city a little more everyday!
I’m so grateful to have such a nice home in the city!!!! You know how you sometimes get to a place and after a while take it for granted? Well every so often you have guests that come here and be so amazed at the view and the city that I’m reminded of how lucky we are to get this opportunity to live here.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I’ll get to live in an apartment so high up, in downtown Manhattan, that I get a totally unobstructed view of the Statue of Liberty.
What can I say? My husband is very capable!!!!
Feels awesome saying that I have a husband! I have came up with several names!
Shall end of the entry with our wedding cake pictures!
