As I said, going to New York is always nice, although I always miscalculate the distances, which transforms each visit to NYC into a deathmarch. But it was nice and I had a late lunch at one of my favourite places in Brooklyn, KHAO SARN at 311 Bedford Avenue. Incredibly good Thai food for incredibly good prices.
The only draw back for the day was torrential rain, including thunder and lightening and raindrops the size of a grape. But at least it wasn’t freezing cold, which is always a plus. Here are some snaps:
There is another thing that never ceases to terrify me; morbidly obese kids. How can people let this happen to their child? I saw a woman with a two or three year old daughter and the kid locked like a bloody Michelin (wo)Man. Mom was also packing a few extra pounds, but a kid that age shouldn’t be that overweight. I think this should already count as negligence and/or abuse.
On a different but related note, I saw another girl in the subway who looked as if she was twelve but typed furiously on her Blackberry and apparently came back from shopping at Victoria’s Secret. What the hell is a twelve-year-old girl doing buying underwear from Victoria’s Secret? On the other hand, she could be one of those American Apparel Lolita/anorexic/underage-looking girls… I spare you the vitriol I have in store when it comes to American Apparel’s ad-campaigns, as you probably know what I’m talking about.
