NYC Beauty Blogger Part Deux Update

A few of us went to karaoke the night before the meetup and didn’t open up to everyone since I wasn’t sure how many would be there and not everyone likes karaoke.. haha. The main meetup was for Sunday at Golden Bridge Restaurant for some yummy dim sum and it was definitely easier to talk to everyone without shouting through the loud music. haha.

Karaoke at Maru
Billy, Katie, T’s cousin, T, Jinah, me and Fuz

OMG! I’m so glad Katie took me here bc Bon Chon chicken was TDF!!! My mouth is just watering thinking about it again. mmmmm. The bartenders there were so nice too! They gave us drinks while we waited for the wings but since I don’t drink, I gave mine to Katie’s bf. =D Also, I found out from Fuz that there’s one right in our backyard!! haha.. well Annandale, VA is technically 20 miles from my work and yes I drove there for lunch today to pick up a large.
FYI: Don’t touch your eyes after eating the spicy wings. Even after washing hand with soap, my eyes stung a bit after taking my contacts out. Oh and also don’t eat the wings while driving bc I had to wait awhile to get back for waterrrrr.. hahah.
The ladies at dim sum!

Lily was such a sweetheart and made everyone mini decorative cheesecake creations!! It was yumm!! So yum, Mona took 2 more with her and wanted to marry Lily! haha. AND she has the most longest natural lashes I’ve ever seen on an Asian person which also makes Mona want to have kids with her. haha.. sigh.. that girl’s too funny!

Mona not waiting to finish her dim sum and just went for the cheesecake. haha.
We head to Soho to do a little shopping. Mona insisted we had to take pics at the MAC counter.

I purchased my Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask from watching Queenie’s vid. haha. I did use it when I came home and will do a review on this for sure. =P

Then we went to Sabon which I’ve never been. It looked like a more upscale Lush and IMO definitely better. I don’t like Lush just bc the scent is overwhelming to me but products at Sabon, I can definitely do. Not to mention that we get a mini spa ritual by washing our hands in their scrub and lotion – both scent and the experience was heavenly. haha. I had to get it! My hands never felt this smooth. =P I also got the mini bar soap in Kiwi Mango – omg, so goooood! This one will be for hubby. hehe.

It was getting a bit hot, so we had to stop off at Pinkberry’s =)
Ok seriously, Melanie is a pretty common name, but why on earth do I get it misspelled?! I had Melony, Melany and now Meloni. Sigh. Just bc I’m asian, doesn’t mean I would spell it any other way! If all fails, please stick to the common way of the spelling. haha.
Me and Lynnie
Jenn and Mona

Annie and Lily
