9/11 Memorial Museum

Welcome back beautiful readers.

I had take a little vacation from social media for the past 3 months. but I’m happy to be back to bring some helpful tips, to all of you city dreamers.

recently my friends and I went to the 9/11 memorial museum.  and the reason why we haven’t been there before is because of the giant lines outside in the cold. so here are some helpful tips.

The museum will take you step by step about the events that happened that day, make sure to read, and reflect about what you see. WE WILL NEVER FORGET. also the museum counts with a self guide audio tour in so many different languages. you can bring your own headphones or just used the ones they let you borrow at the museum. they also have a small cafeteria in case you get hungry.

information base in the outside and tickets purchase

we bought our tickets online, and that was actually good because by the time we got there they were already sold out.

the ticket we bought was a non time ticket. we bought it because it was the most buy ticket, we figured it was going to be more easer just to get there and go in with the group going at that time, since they let people in every half an hour.

little that we know buying a non time ticket is was going to be our biggest mistake

so they have 2 giant lines one for people holding time tickets and the other line was for non time tickets or if you were going to purchase tickets you also go to the non time line.

we spend three and a half hours on a very very slow line in the cold trying to get our time ticket. that was really no fun at all also I saw a lot of elderly people on the line for hours. I wish they would have done some kind of fast access to the elderly is was brutally cold to be standing in line for that long.

After you get your time tickets you hope that’s it you have finally reach the window and you are ready to go in but NOT….. those 3 and a half hours in line are just to get a time ticket. So before we had tickets but now we have the time on the ticket????? That just didn’t make sense to me or anyone who was in the line for those many hours… After we got our time ticket we were frozen literally. and ready to do another looooooonnngggg line to get in so in total we spend four and a half hours doing lines before we got inside. and when you finally make your way inside you forget about the four and a half hours standing in the cold is really breath taking so much to see, read and reflect. definitely worth the lines. But is always good to save some time if you have the opportunity that’s why I decide to give you’ll these tips.

TIPS.

make sure to BUY a TIME ticket ONLINE, and make sure you are there 15-30 minutes BEFORE the time that is printed on your ticket. oh yeah printed your ticket have it ready. it just makes things more faster. and Don’t be late or you will end up doing 2 lines (yeap) an extra one because your time passed and you need a new time ticket.

there you go hopefully these tips will help you enjoy more your visit to the museum.

*** Thank You for all then love!******

Flushing – Main Street

Who doesn’t  like to travel and discover new cultures, people and places; well what if I say you can travel to Asia in New York, I know what are you thinking you have heard about  Manhattan’s Chinatown. But this time I’m talking about Flushing Main Street. I had talked about this place in my other blogs but it was very briefly so I had decide to make a blog about it.

If you have ever wonder how is too live in Asia, or become fluent in Mandarin or Korean language this is your place to be. Downtown Flushing is known for its Bakeries,  easy transportation into Manhattan and for their  “Most authentic Asian cousin”

The second most crowded place in NYC after Times Square of course.  Walking around Flushing Main Street you might feel you have left the New York. every where you look around in Main Street is not written in English anymore or at least the biggest sings is all about Chinese Mandarin or Korean. I just found that fascinating how a place can change so much, and of course the majority of the population in Flushing is Asian even going to a super market is a totally different adventure, got to say not my favorite but still fun.

I love how Flushing keeps growing with technology and their nice looking scenery, buildings and shops. And most of the food, I would lie if I say I didn’t have some favorites, because every time I’m in Flushing I like to try new things and so far i have never been disappointed. But if you are thinking on going for the first time i will share some of the places you need to try fist.

Queens Crossing Mall on the ground level food court – It’s like entering to a whole new world of the best Asian food. Japanese, Taiwanese, korean, chinese and so much more

The Coop- Original Korean style chicken

The Spot- Most delicious desserts, with a twist of adventure, all for pictures and Instagram posts.

Bubble Tea- they are pretty much in every Corner in Main street, refreshing and delicious drinks with tapioca.

XIAN famous food- Their Lamb soup is just a party of flavors, highly recommend this place. Also if you are vegetarian you will find a lot to choose from in any of this places.

Now you know if you are feeling adventures and want to try something new hop on the “Seven Train” and get of on the last stop Flushing Main Street.

Another great year in this crazy amazing city, this year winter is not joking for sure, its been super cold windy and snowy.  as always during holiday season the city is really busy. Let say that during this season always take me double of the time moving around the city, so many people from all over the world. I like to play with my sister as we talk around the city “guess in what language they are speaking” Something that never gets old is to see the reaction of people faces when they see something in the city for the first time.

the city is getting ready for the special count down in times square tomorrow and for the many who like to go out and welcome the new year in Times Square I will give you some tips: 1- Make sure you get to Times Square early enough so you can pick your spot, and when I say early I’m not joking.  2- make sure you eat good because you might not be able to leave your spot. 3- bundle up  the weather tomorrow it will be freezing,  last but not lease ENJOY every single minute left you have this year. go out of your comfort zone and take the best before you say goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018!

well my friends this is all for this year its been amazing to share my journal with you’ll until next year! Be happy and remember ALWAYS Chase your Dreams

First Date Tips!

Why is so hard to find the right person for you, is it because you are looking to  hard or because there is none? To be honest sometimes us girls don’t really give guys the change to show more. I know what are you thinking some guys need more extra time to be discover but went you pass the “macho man” face you will see “Prince Charming”

so for you beautiful people out there I will give you five tips you might want to try next time you find that special someone.

Things you shouldn’t do on your first date.

1- Don’t ask or talk about you Ex. They are already an “X” on your life so why to bring them back on the topic.

2- Don’t look too desperate, this can be hard sometimes if you have been single for a while, but you don’t want to let the other know that  so play it cool, that’s always the trick.

3- Never lie, lying always end up bad and the true will always come out

4- Listen not just talk about yourself all the time, nobody likes a selfcenter person, let the other person talk.

5- Never think that there is something wrong with you, sometimes you will have to pass a lot of wrongs to find the RIGHT.

DO’s

1- Be yourself, if the persoimg_5615n likes you he/she would likes you because of who you are.
