Late Post: At Bryant's Park

The other day, EJ said "I wish we can go back to New York." I nodded and whispered to myself, I wish that too. Which reminds me, I haven't finished writing about our trip to NYC last Christmas. Not that I have to, but I want to because it's nice to reminisce about old trips with pictures and words. Lately though, either I am very busy or I am lazy to write a post in this blog. Today, I have a few minutes to spare so let me post some pictures of ours taken at Bryant Park.

The skating rink is at the back of the boys. The line was long, maybe even longer than the one we saw at Rockefeller Center.

{It was a really cold day!}

{Resting and taking in the view}

At that time, Bryant Park was full of different shops all together called the Holiday Market. We just went around the shops and watched with envy the people skating on the rink before we went to find a coffee shop.

Restaurant in Phnom Penh: Yoshinoya

My favorite Japanese food chain is in town!

Last Friday, EJ and I were in the airport to pick up the husband (he was in Hongkong for a conference for 4 days). I was pleasantly surprised to see Yoshinoya!

I checked right away if they were open. Haha! I was dying to eat their beef bowl. The staff told me they just opened the day before (meaning Thursday). How lucky was I? 

When hubby arrived, I asked him if we could have dinner at Yoshinoya. Of course he said yes. He loves Yoshinoya as much as I do. 

{I had beef bowl and EJ had teriyaki chicken and karaage}

I am happy to hear that they will open two more stores in town soon. One in Aeon Mall (mall is still under construction but is set to open this June) and the other one along Sisowath Quay.

 Yay! Our tummy's getting bigger but it's definitely happier! Haha!

Afternoon High Tea at Intercon Hotel Phnom Penh

Last week, I was particularly craving for some scones. Then, from a magazine I saw an advert about a high tea at Intercon Hotel. I called to make sure there were scones in their high tea. One couldn't be sure, right? They said yes. Perfect!

I dragged EJ along with me and off we went to Intercon last Friday. Their high tea is served in their lobby lounge from 2pm-5pm. It's $10++/person.

{I chose green tea}

I only ordered for 1 person because even at my gluttonous state, I don't think I could finish all those sandwiches and sweets. And besides, I was there for the scones only. The rest I shared with my willing companion. I just ordered additional mango shake for him. 

EJ didn't quite like the sweets so I reluctantly shared the other scone. Haha! The sandwiches weren't the best either but I was satisfied with the scones.

I'll try other afternoon high tea available in town for comparison sake.
