Fourth of July

The weekend started with a gift.

Cindy wanted an iPad for some time now, for both fun and work reasons – she has a lot of video lectures that she needs to watch, so she needed some portable device she can use for that. And because I like nothing more than seeing her happy – and I of all people know how happy one is when getting a cool new gadget – I got her one.

Not without some trouble, ofc, since the darn thing is completely sold out, even 3 months after its release. It’s like everybody in New York City wants one. So after trying every single Apple store in the city I ended up ordering it online. It took 2 weeks but I finally got it.

Should go without saying that my girl was extremely happy with her gift, and spent most of the time we were home playing with it. Which wasn’t that much actually, since every day we went out.

Sunday we met some of Cindy’s friends for brunch. After – since they wanted something refreshing to drink – I took them to a bubble tea place. Where we ended staying for more then 2 hours, because right when we were about to leave I met up with Linh and another friend who were craving some as well. So we switched the group of friends and had some more with them.

Later we stopped by a small “beach” on the edge of the East River for some drinks and a nice view of the sunset. The place was crowded since there aren’t many places in NYC where you can get sand, beach towels and… fake coconut trees.

On Moday afternoon Cindy had a surprise of her own reserved for me: she booked a cruise on a sail boat around the New York bay area while being served sushi from a famous chef. We were on the boat for about two hours enjoying the great view and – of course – the fish. After the sunset – which we watched by the Statue of Liberty – they took us back to the city.

Here are some pictures from that great weekend:
