So my friend Pam and I meet regularly in Chinatown for lunch. She works in the financial district, I live on the lower east side which puts Chinatown in the middle.
Thursday a lot of places were closed for the New Years, luckily our new favorite Malaysian place (New Malaysia Restaurant) was open and halfway through dinner this happened:
NYC is, even after all these years, filled with the unexpected, not that a dragon dancing in your restaurant at lunch time during Chinese New Year is so out of the ordinary, but it made my day.
After almost 29 years of living here I love that I can still be surprised and delighted. Which is my #1 thing about living in NYC that has kept life here so exciting, interesting and unpredictable, everyday something else is going to surprise you. It’s a guarantee.
