Travel Diary: Times Square, New York

Travel Diary: Times Square, New York

I guess you’re wondering where I’ve gone to, disappeared, hidden and concealed myself from this beautiful blog. Trust me, I’m as hurt as you.

I’ve been trying to set up myself for graduate school and believe me, it was a looong process. I had to take a hiatus from blogging for a few weeks but I’m so glad to be back!

I finally got my student visa and travelled so my family decided to stop by in New York for a day before transiting to our next destination.

In my previous travel post, I mentioned that New York is somewhere I would love to visit again! I last came here in 2008 so I was extremely excited to visit again.

I wanted to see Times Square again because the picture  of the place was imprinted in my brain from the last time I went there and it’s such an iconic place.

Times Square….

Times Square is in Manhattan and it’s mostly known for all the brightly adorned electronic billboards and massive pop up shops below. It’s also super close to where the famous Broadway shows are played!

New York City is chaotic, crowded, a little dirty and full of life. There also seemed to be a lot of larger-than-life personalities here. I saw a lot of interesting things and strange people while I was in Times square.

As I mentioned before, there is no place I’ve ever visited that’s like New York because it’s so different! It’s also one of the only cities I know that becomes even more busy at night.

It’s such a peculiar city, I’m so sad I couldn’t see more of this place. I will come back again one day because I still need to see the Statue of Liberty duh!

Without boring you further, here are some of the pictures I took at Times Square! All of these pictures were taken on my iPhone! Gasspp!!

A New Beginning 

I’m starting a blog! This is so exciting! For some reason I wasn’t as nervous starting a blog as I was when I started a YouTube channel.

I think the allure of hiding behind a screen drew me to blogging ultimately (The introvert force is strong with me). I can finally live my dreams as a couch potato…until my next YouTube video.

I wanted to start a blog to express a different side of me, doing Pearl things, creatively, in my own space, for everyone.  I feel this is the right place.

So here’s some little facts about me:

  • I just finished my final year in the University of Salford, I studied Biomedical Science
  • I love watching movies – I watch almost every movie that is showing in the cinema.
  • Music is an integral part of my life – music is capable of provoking strong emotions in me or carrying me through mundane things like reading a book
  • I love travelling to popular tourist sites and doing basic tourist stuff.
  • I am a natural hair and makeup enthusiast. I’m always trying new products and techniques to get the best out of my hair and skin.

That’s it! I hope this kicks off the blog and any suggestions are highly appreciated!
