|旅行風景|從前從前,在紐約… Once Upon a Time in New York…

上週和日本同學奈都小姐說走就走的紐約行,讓我見識到不同於盛夏充滿綠意的大蘋果。冬天的曼哈頓天際線以枯樹枝為畫布背景,聖誕節慶的櫥窗為畫筆,將城市大筆一揮改的熱鬧繽紛。

My Japanese classmate Natsu and I had a New York weekend getaway. Different from what I’ve experience before in summer, this time Manhattan in winter is like a Christmas wonderland with holiday magic. You just can’t help but feel festive everywhere.

奈都小姐是我在班上很談得來的好友之一,也許是我們彼此都去過對方國家很多次,多了幾分親切感;也或許是我們剛好是分小班教學時班上僅有的亞洲人,更多了幾分東方臉孔的熟悉,所以很自然常常聚在一起討論報告兼講同學八卦

很可惜我的日文已經忘得差不多了,只僅剩下偶爾我們不知道怎麼用英文表達語彙時,會以漢字或假名取代的能力。當然同為留學生的酸甜苦辣更是班上的老美很難體會的,也讓我們有了很多共同話題。

 

Natsu is one of my closest friend in Boston. Maybe because both of us had visited each other’s country for many times before, or maybe because we have the exact same class schedule this semester, it’s just quite natural for us to become friends. 

It’s interesting to communicate with her. Since Taiwan and Japan share similar cultures, we sometimes type or write Chinese characters to each other when there is something we don’t know how to say in English.

和同學一起出外住宿有種好似畢業旅行的錯覺。奈都小姐熱愛黑色,鞋包配件等清一色都是如墨一般的濃黑,中間穿插幾分毛茸茸的外加毛領(例如灰色款黑色款、和鑲有寶石的這款)中和黑色的冷酷: 

Traveling with a classmate is like a graduation trip. Natsu is obsessed with black pieces and she usually wears fur accessories to give a feminine touch for her look.

這次承蒙同學的福借住在親戚家一宿,第二晚和同學幸運用Hotwire.com標到五折的W Hotels, 房間內冷冽的現代設計風格,就像W的logo一樣極簡俐落:

Thanks to Natsu that I could stay at her relative’s place for one night. And then luckily, we booked W hotels with 50% off on hotwire.com. I love the sleek and modern interior style of W hotels. Just like their famous W logo design, it’s simple yet powerful.

晚上從Rockefeller Center看完聖誕樹後,再繼續走到Saks Fifth Avenue看光彩奪目的燈光大秀,配合著名的耶誕櫥窗裝飾,今年以童話”An Enchanted Experience”為主題,用現代手法重新詮釋大家耳熟能詳的故事。聲光活動俱佳的秀精彩非常,我們著迷到早晚都各去一次欣賞不同時光的美景。

The Christmas windows at Saks Fifth Avenue are simply amazing. The whole “An Enchanted Experience” show includes fairy tales scenes which are rendered in an Art Deco style, video projections, light display and music. Everything is unbelievably spectacular.

譬如灰姑娘的櫥窗在設計團隊的巧思下變成:

The window of Cinderella depicts a moment when she arrived at the Saks Fifth Avenue Ball. 

“Once upon a time in New York, Cinderella fell madly in love with a pair of designer shoes.”

還有我最喜歡的睡美人櫥窗,上面是這麼寫著:

And here comes my favorite Sleeping Beauty window. 

“Once upon a time in New York, the Sleeping Beauty had a trouble adjusting to the city that never sleeps.”

另外這次也觀賞了出乎意外好看的音樂劇Matilda,在TKTS購入打六折的Matilda, 在零度低溫下的冷風中排隊半小時果然還是值得的。

We also watched the fantastic Matilda musical in Broadway. It was totally beyond my expectation and I almost burst out into tears at the end of the show. Waiting in line at TKTS for 40% off tickets for 30 minutes at 32ºF was worth it.

最後以品嘗Lady M的千層派結束吧!招牌抹茶口味清爽不膩,濃郁的栗子口味也頗討人喜愛,不管哪個口味都綿密柔滑如絲綢,一入口就在舌尖處融化,讓人回味無窮。外帶可以省去小費不無小補,叉子也做得很有質感。Lady M目前在紐約有三間分店:

The Lady M mille crepes ended our little trip perfectly. Both the green tea and maroon flavors tasted like silk and melted immediately right on the tip of my tongue. There are currently three Lady M stores in NY that you can purchase their famous mille crepes.
