New York, New York… it’s definitely not Frank Sinatra’s famous song. It’s simply, New York, New York– that is: Manhattan, New York. Many know Manhattan as one of the boroughs of New York, but when it’s legally written as in – officially as an address, it really is referred to as New York, New York. Most locals refer to Manhattan as the “city ” hence, we normally say “we’re going to the city” and it means we’re going to Manhattan.
In connection to yesterday’s post, I wrote that it was a “must” for us to go to the city because I had a change of heart. Remember this post when we were in Aruba? Yes, I did change my mind. Good thing is, Louis Vuitton has a very liberal return policy. Within 30 days, for as long as the item isn’t used and is in its original condition, you can have a store credit or exchange the product. Hey, a store credit or exchange is good enough, right? Can you imagine the loss a store like Louis Vuitton would incur if they do refunds?
The only bad thing about the exchange was, we wound up paying more because the tax we paid wasn’t credited back. I kind of felt bad because, we did pay taxes in Aruba(originally, I thought everything was tax free but we found out items like this are not tax free), although taxes there are not as exorbitant as the 8.375% NY tax which we dutifully pay for, on top of the SRP, of almost every item we buy. See what impulse buying does? Lessons…..
It’s when times like this, that I insist on Frank, that he has to get something for himself. Guilty ba? Yeah, I do feel the guilt, but…. So, I get to the store next door from LV, that is Bergdorf Goodman, to get these for him. When I headed next door, he wasn’t even with me as he was having his haircut at his barber in midtown.

Pampalubag loob ba… *lol*.
And this explains why I had the chance to take pictures at the Rockefeller plaza. I had to wait for him longer so I had to pick-up my supply of truffles from Teuscher.
The “cheap girl” in me, why personally go there when I could have gotten this on-line. Well, that’s easy. We saved $15.50 on our tickets, because we didn’t have to pay the additional service and handling charge they tuck on when tickets are bought online. O, di may pang dinner kami.
The day that we’re going to watch will be Lea Salonga’s second to the last day of performance in Les Miserables.
Dinner was at Trattoria on Bleecker St. in the Village.
We didn’t chow on all the food pictured here. Of course, inuwi namin ang natira. Grabe! dami nito. The food was really delicious as always. The sauce of the pasta was really to die for. This is one of Frank’s favorite restaurants in the Village.
Well, that was a long day but it was nice walking around town on a good weather like yesterday.
