Dumpling Festival 2009 in NYC

The Dumpling Festival was the past Saturday and it took me this long to blog about it, I'm ashamed! Anywhose, the festival was fun... fun in the rain. The rain was on and off and was driving me nuts but they had giveaways at the end and we need to be there to get the prizes. There were so many yummy dumplings, I was too busy eating to take any photos >.<

But I did get a shot with the dumpling mascot, big head, kept knocking me further away! Oh, plus that creepy dude that smiled for the camera also. I would crop him out but it wouldn't be that funny/queer/scary. lol

Then there's the dumpling eating contest which you have to eat as many as you can within 2 minutes, I've never seen a food contest before. I mean I saw it on TV, especially the Fourth of July hotdog eating contest. Boy does it look scary. But the people here makes it look so nice and formal, except for...

...the dude in the black cap that's worned backwards. He's like washing his face with the dumplings! He ate 52!

See that girl with the shades and the hood on, she was the winner last year. Only ate 33 this year and was beaten by the girl to her right. The russian chick ate 40, beating her record last year! The asian chick is crazy tho, the way she ate and her method, I would say pretty smarttt.
She put 1 dumpling in her mouth, bites it in half swallows. Puts in the 2nd one, does the same and then takes a sip of water. And she repeats that method STANDING UP! wowzers... then everyone started standing up lol

Big guys here, number 37 won it again this year. He wanted to beat his amount last year of 66 but only did 53, just enough to win it from the "washing the face" dude. lol

Truly a good experience, minus the rain that is. The best part, my boyfriend won the Kindle that cost like $260 on Amazon. Top prize =] I would love the pan/wok but I wasn't that lucky. Better luck next time.

How's everyone doing? It's raining insanely here in NY for the past 2 days and tomorrow is gonna be nice and sunny? The weather is messin' with me, trying to get me sick here.

El'Haul: Bracelets + Macys

The past week I got some new things, more like I got the bracelets in the beginning of the week and the other two things like one day after the other lol I apologize for not responding to you Stacieee about receiving the bracelets. I totally forgot my boyfriend had my camera charger, and I just got it back today so here are the pictures.

The bracelets and love note I got in the mail from Stacieee, such a sweetheart <3

Here's the Black Diamond Triple Crystal Bracelet, I love how the 3 bracelets look together sooo chic!

This is the Soft Sunset Pearl Bracelet, I love pink and this caught my eyes right away. And both bracelet fit my wrist perfectly, thank you Stacieeee!

Just 2 days ago, my boyfriend and I went to Macys to try and get the DVB (David Victoria Beckham) perfume/cologne. They were giving out this black tote and messenger bag along with the fragrance purchase. Since DVB is soooo hot I pretty much convinced my boyfriend to get it with me. Unfortunately they didn't have the messenger for my boyfriend so we're gonna go back sometime soon and get it.

The tote is humungus, and I mean huuuuuge. I can so use this for school, my boyfriend said I got too many bags. Please, there's not such a thing as toooo many bags hahaha

The packaging is so sexy, elegant, and classy. Gosh, I love them! David and Victoria Beckham are such a hot ass couple.

And who doesn't like freebies, the salesperson felt bad and gave me another DVB signature perfume, I thought she was gonna give us the men fragance not women -_- but she did give us the Ed Hardy sample for men and women lol

Omg, I did not know that Macys got MAC cosmetics. Call me slow or whatever but yea I just saw them there. Just shows how long I haven't been to Macys *shameee. This is also my first MAC products, I can finally try out their oh so powerful cosmetics lol

I got 2 of their blushes as starters, I'm sure I'll be getting more since it's at Macys now.

A blush in Mocha and a bronzer in Harmony.

The lighting might be deceiving and it doesn't come off that dark with one swipe. I had to pack on a lot to have that color showing in that picture. The texture of both are very smooth, now I know why people invest in MAC.
