NY part 2

While we were in NYC we had to go visit the Nintendo Store! I heard at one time it was a Pokemon Center. Boy oh boy the store is pretty! The store was more focused on Mario Kart 8, Mario plushies and Pokemon. I just wished they had more items of Zelda or Animal Crossing items! We got lots of Street passes on this trip – not as many as Disney World but a good amount. Most of them from France – random!

We also went to an art exhibit that showcased pieces created from lego pieces! At the end of the exhibit they ask you to write your name on some legos and the artist will create a new piece from the signed bricks!

Back in 2004 or so, my middle sister had many foreign exchange friends in high school. One of the friends wasn’t an exchange student but moved from Korea to our little town in Texas. He quickly became family and was my sister’s best friend through out their high school years. We always called each other family, he refers my mom as his ‘mexican mom’ and we three girls as his sisters. He lives in NYC so we met up! He was so nice, he bought me cupcakes since it was my bday and paid for starbucks. It was the first time my husband got to meet my little brother. He has grown to become a man! Kinda weird to see him so grown-up.

Other things to note: FOOD! We ate at Totto Ramen! So yummy, Houston is finally getting a ramen scene in the city. We also had some Scottish food, NY Pizza, and on the last day an awesome deli! Here are some random pics: Scottish Burger, yummy ramen and photo of me with Bill Heck (in CABARET).

    I love the Nintendo Store! I feel like I have to go there every time I visit NYC, haha. The first time I went, I actually found it by accident!

    An art exhibit with legos sounds so cool. I love some of the detailed and large things people build with legos.

    That’s cute that your friend calls you guys his sisters 😀 I’m glad you were able to meet up while in NY! All of the food looks yummy!

    Ugh, I’d love to visit that Nintendo Store!!!! It looks such an awesome place. Also, the lego exhibits looks amazing! I’ve been a lego fan since I was a kid and huge lego structures and creation always amaze me.

    Ah your NYC trip is awesome. I’m really happy for you and your husband!

    I think all the nintendo players I’ve met happen to love animal crossing ahaha.. it’s a cute game but I couldn’t find myself too engrossed in it, not sure why. Pokemon, though, will always be my obsession. I’ve always been a pokemon kid and I think I’m not gonna stop being one til I’m old 😉

    I’d probably buy plushies of my favorite pokemon if I were you… I really want a gengar doll or a treecko doll or a charmander one (or all of them! LOL)

    Oh hey wow that’s a biiiiig starbucks there. is that the size above venti?? 😮 because it looks like it’s more than uh… 22oz? I really need that size haha venti starbucks doesn’t justify my caffeine overdosed habit anymore and I tend to finish it in like less than 30minutes

    I’ve always wanted to go to NYC :s I really wanna see all the lights and the busy cars and stuff… and i also wanna try out some food trucks 🙁 you’re really lucky and i’m really jealous! xD

    p.s: i moved my url ^^;;

    Sounds like you had an amazing time in NYC! I haven’t visited in about 5 or 6 years and I’d love to go again. My family’s actually going so I’m very jealous X_X

    The Nintendo Store was a Pokemon Center but then they changed it for some reason! I remember them having a lot of awesome Nintendo merch (like Super Mario boxers).

    It’s pretty awesome that you were able to meet up with your little brother!

    I just came back from NY too, but I was just visiting parents and Long Island!! I haven’t been to the Nintendo store in a long time, I remember the last time i tried to go I forgot where it was and ended up going to the NBC store lol. Glad you had a good time 🙂

    BTW, where is that Lego exhibit?
