In The Steps of the Silver Screen: New York Destinations For TV Lovers

When it comes to TV shows set in America, they tend to be in one of two places. Sure, there are variations - Breaking Bad takes us to New Mexico, while Grey's Anatomy makes Seattle a feature. But for the most part, they're set in California or New York.


Often, the setting is a big part of the show. California shows are more out of necessity, with so many established ways of filming in the state. New York, however, tends to be used to reflect metropolitan, busy and confusing lives - and it's all the better for it. Besides the shows, music entertainment is everywhere along the streets, mastering software are utilized for those who love music.


A holiday to New York is on many people's bucket lists, so perhaps there is a way of combining the two? Your love of your favourite shows with one of the world's most dynamic cities. If you want to walk in your favourite character's footsteps, you're only a plane ride away.


Once Upon A Time: ChinaTown

ChinaTown is worth a visit anyway for its bustling beauty, but it has extra significance for OUAT fans. The character of The Dragon was introduced in season two but made a spectacular comeback at the climax to season five. He now owns a shop in ChinaTown, which is visited by fan favourites Regina and Gold. See the area for yourself and explore the stalls and shops offering something truly unique.


Gossip Girl: Take To The Skies


Many pivotal moments of Gossip Girl involved moments before or after a helicopter journey. In season two's conclusion, Chuck leaves Blair waiting for him, a lonely figure at the helipad. It's also where, later on, Nate realises his new love interest is a member of a rival family. Grab a touch of luxury and wealth for yourself with helicopter rides in NYC, all possible even without the trust fund of the characters.


Sex and The City: Yankee Stadium and/or Fifth Avenue

Fresh from a breakup (well, one of the breakups) with Mr Big, the season two premiere sees the four main characters get their sporting fix. Miranda, a devout Yankees fan, is irritated by her friends as they while away an afternoon at a ballgame. Baseball is often referred to as America's pastime, so if you truly want your holiday to reflect America life, it's a good place to start.


If that's not quite your style, then nothing says Sex and The City like shopping. To recount the episodes that involve luxury high-end shopping would take the rest of the year, but start on Fifth Avenue and explore. Just be careful not to lose control of your credit card trying to keep up with the fashionable foursome!


White Collar: Art Galleries and Museums


White Collar featured around former (and some would argue, continued) art fraudster Neal Caffrey and his FBI handler, Peter. As a result, much of the show is themed around the art galleries they investigate. One particular stand out is the MoMA PS1 on Long Island, which was used as the setting for the fictional Hellerman Gallery in season four.


There is plenty more besides, so why not see which of your favourite characters you can share a New York experience with?

  2. My cousin flew to NY to see Adele live, Madison SG. The long haul flight scares me. I think I'll have to give it a miss.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
