Come one, come all.

City Bakery (located on 18th street b/w 5th and 6th aves) has been known for hot chocolate for some time apparently, and I was completely out of the loop until Tineey emailed me an image of their Hot Chocolate Festival calendar. A gigantic homemade marshmallow (was there even such thing?) hot-tubbing in a melted pool of chocolate on a cold, rainy day sounded comparable to heaven.

Oh, hello there, pretzel croissant. Yes, the salty, endlessly chewable goodness of a pretzel covered in the flaky, buttery shell of a croissant.

That gigantic marshmallow is homemade, and before this trip I didn’t even know that was possible. What is it, organic? who knows… Give it a few minutes, don’t forget to grab a spoon and it starts tumbling like a melting glacier. Pretty soon you’ve got chocolate soup and there’s no point in pretending that you’ll be able to drink it. Spoon and sip, young grasshopper. That’s the only way you’re getting this in your system.

Oh, and p.s. – here’s the official schedule for the Hot Chocolate Festival at City Bakery. You’ve got a few days left.

    Jinna, I just came across this blog and I love it. I just want MORE!
    It would be great if you could share some inside tips on NYC since you’re living there and it being one of the most popular travel destinations (and also because I’m going there myself next month!). City bakery and top of the rock is definitely on my to-do list!


It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do.

You are living a life full of miracles. Perspective is everything. ??
Hardships only prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. Always keep your head up.

And through this, I grew to know her soul.

Never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. And if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.
Eat to nourish the body. Love to feed the soul. ?
Artists, thank you for your struggle.

Take every chance.
Drop every fear.
Be still.
And watch the world work magic around you.

In a world so obsessed with staying young, I welcome age as I welcome wisdom. Passion gained, dreams chased, love lost, hope found and memories stored in a mind guided by my heart.

Know that your scars are what make you beautiful. To me, you are perfect.

Your life is your message to the world. Make sure it's inspiring. ?
Best cannolo I've ever tasted from the Testacchio district in #Rome, Italy.

1. Always buy a cannolo from a Sicilian.

2. It should never be pre-filled before you order.

3. It should be filled (and dipped if you want) on the spot. This will keep it from getting soggy.

4. You will never be able to have just one. -_-
