The last few weeks in Pictures…

June 3, 2007

Some small updates, nothing totally exciting…
Friend from the UK visited and we did a little sight seeing and hung out at the park.
The weather is getting warmer by the day. Humidity is back and I don’t particularly like it.

That day at the park was gorgeous though, people were playing baseball and the rollerblader/skaters were doing their thing. Extremely warm friendly people, every willing to teach you. Someone told me to bring my rollerblades and join the fun! Cool stuff but I’m not that mad to hang with them.
Then we saw this silly old women with belly dancing belt dancing to a street band. WEIRD people in NYC but its all entertainment.

Little Britain in the Big Apple

May 7, 2007

Tea and Sympathy

Little Britain in the Big Apple

Tea & Sympathy is one of Garth’s haven in NYC for some home cooking just like Singapore Cafe is mine! We went there Sunday for roast and fish & chips and we met owners Nicky Perry and Sean Kavanagh-Dowsett. Sean told us that he made Keifer Sutherland wear a T-shirt in LA and made sure he got himself photographed wearing it for support! He knows all celebs living in NY. We saw Stephen Dourf at their store the last time we were there. Our closest thing to knowing a celebrity.

There’s curry hill which I go to to get my ingredients for my curry. There’s also a Chinatown and a little Italy. So why not have a Little Britain?! They need their PG Tips, Cadburys, Ribenas, HP Sauce… For Indians its a given really we need spices everyone loves a good curry so there’s a need to go somewhere where you can get everything curry related. There need to be a place for the Chinese to feel at home in and so hence Chinatown. My freakin Singapore Cafe needs to be somewhere! The Mafia would crave a bowl of pasta once in a while.

So please vote for a little Britain. At least you’ll know where not to go to avoid the Brits!! hee hee…
