We of course ended the night at CICF with ice cream! Saturday nights in Chinatown can be kinda awesome!

Like every other girl on the planet, I love flowers. I’ve gotten flowers from this shop a handful of times. More times than that, I’ve bought the flowers for myself. (It’s called being an Independent Woman. ) =)
I am a huge fan of their multicolor rose bouquets. They also do local deliveries in Chinatown. (So, if you want to send me flowers, please do so!)
They also have some small house plants for sale. Moms usually like those too.

Happy Express Café is a HK style eatery. It’s kinda like Komba or M Star Cafe. It’s a good breakfast joint because the food is yummy, fast, and cheap. I like their versions of breakfast sandwiches. The chicken over rice is also yummy.
They also have hot and cold drinks available. HK style coffee is a must.
NEW MALAYSIA RESTAURANT
I like to ask my friends what their favorites places to eat are. A common answer that I’ve been hearing is the New Malaysia Restaurant.
It’s a place that I love too. It’s no frills dining. The food is really fresh, yummy, and affordable.
Malay food is one of the more popular cuisines in our Chinatown. The New Malaysian Restaurant isn’t written up nearly as many times as it should be. It’s our local secret top pick.
Most of us just call it “the tunnel”. It’s one of a series of restaurants that lie within the tunnel that connects Elizabeth and Bowery streets in the middle of the block.
I recommend the seafood and chicken dishes here.

When I go to work and put on my Tokidoki watch, it is a good day. I’m simple minded and it takes very little to make me happy...
Today I dropped it on the floor and shattered the band and thought…”crap today is going to be a shitty day.”
Lucky for me; CICF is right across from the “Watch Repair Man”. For $5 bucks, he pieced together my watch and saved the day. The Watch Man is definitely a superhero in my book!

Foot and back spas have been popping up all over the place. On Bayard Street alone, there must be at least 4 places.
Foot Long Live is definitely a no frills place. It's a dark walk down which at first scared me. After going down, I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the place. The decor isn't much but the massages are good and the prices are pretty low.
