Well it's my last week here in NY :( Can't believe that I've been here for six months already... I'm excited to see everybody again, but still: I don't wanna go home yet! There are so many things I still want to do/see/eat! Good news is that I'll be returning with my cousin Wing Ni (she's here since 19th September, her birthday!), which means I've got someone to accompany me on the flight and someone to help me carry all my stuff ha!
Although it was Wing's birthday that day, she was pretty knackered from the flight, so we just had some udon at Udon West in East Village.

Cute little sake bottle: what's inside it, is pretty good too ;)

The next day we went to Chinatown and Little Italy, where they held the San Gennaro festival that weekend. With all the food stands, it looked a little bit like Koninginnedag in NL. We got home pretty late, but still decided to go clubbing haha. First we went to Thor, which looked really nice, but it was more a place for having drinks. Then we went to La Caverna, there were a lot of cheesy people, but we had a good time nonetheless.
Last Saturday we had brunch with all the roommates (minus Raf), because Jeremy got back from Tanzania earlier. We wanted to go to Cafe Habana, but unfortunately it was packed, with the waiting time to be an hour. Since we were starving, we went to Cafe el Portal nearby, where we started with margarita's at 13.30 (a NY brunch isn't a brunch without drinks haha). After brunch Wing, Jeremy, Ryan & I went to have another drink at L'Orange Bleue ;)
That night W & I went out in Meatpacking. Went to One, but it kinda sucked. After walking around, we randomly stumbled upon an Asian party at Earth ;) We met some great people there and when the club closed, we all went to Koreatown for some karaoke, haha good times...

Went to Highbar last Wednesday. It's pretty small, but has a nice view (which you'd be able to see if my camera didn't suck...)

Mac & Cheese kroket. I prefer the normal kalfsvleeskroket.

Poutine:Fries with Canadian cured Cheddar cheese & Chicken gravy from Pommes Frites. Bit too salty for my taste, but not as bad as it sounds/looks...

US Open

Went to the quarterfinal match of the US Open between Andy Roddick and Novak Djokovic last Thursday! My seat was located in section 307, on the Lower Promenade. Which meant that I kinda sat in the 'Nose bleed section', but surprisingly I had a good view of the court. Prior to the match, Michael Chang and Todd Martin played an exhibition match, which Martin won by 8-4. Djokovic won the match by 6-2 6-3 3-6 7-6 (7-5). Roddick had an off-day, as he made a lot of errors. I was pretty dissapointed when he lost the second set, I feared the match wouldn't last very long (I wanted to see a five-setter!). Luckily he came back in the third set and almost got the fourth set, but I guess he choked again and Djokovic was just too good. It was just an amazing experience, to actually go and see an US Open match. What surprised me though, was how rude (a portion of) the crowd was. Sure, I get that the majority was rooting for Roddick, but some people just couldn't keep their mouth shut when Djokovic was serving. After the match he managed to piss the crowd off, by saying something to the likes of:"Andy said I had 16 injuries in the last match, obviously I don't right?" Resulting in boos from the crowd.
