The Royal Observatory, Greenwich (known as the Old Royal Observatory from 1957 to 1998, when the working Royal Greenwich Observatory, RGO, moved from Greenwich to Herstmonceux) is an observatory situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. It played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and is best known for the fact that the prime meridian passes through it, and thereby gave its name to Greenwich Mean Time. I bought the ticket to observatory from Klook! Just RM50 per person (used all my Klook! credit so the price become RM31 per person 🤫). Frankly speaking, you don’t have to buy the ticket if you want take picture on the Prime Meridian, you actually stand on the line when you are here. Not worth it to pay £15 but if you passionate about astronomy and earth yes you should go and visit!!! Actually you don’t have to queue for taking photo at prime meridian as mention by the officer yet tourist still queue for taking photos 🤭. #royalobservatorygreenwich#greenwichvillage#greenwich#london#klook#ticket#sightseeing#igers#international#earth
When I left work today I walked south on 7th Ave. toward 49th Street. This is my last walk through Times Square, at least for awhile, I thought as I looked up at the neon blinking billboards. After dinner this evening I walked through Union Square and watched the farmer’s market pack up and the skateboarders perform tricks along the stone steps. I looked up at the mysterious series of numbers on a building nearby that rapidly rotate. It always felt like the numbers were counting down to something, especially now: my New York countdown.
I don’t like the thought of being a visitor in New York. The idea of playing tourist in a city that I know so well, that I lived in and made a home in, makes me feel like I’m trying to replicate a time that once was. I have this pang of sadness when I visit my college campus. I expect the passing faces to be familiar. To hear my name called by a friend on the quad. To feel the rush of needing to get to a lecture or office hours and so I feel untethered, knowing my place has been filled in here.
I lived on Cape Cod for a summer and waitressed at a restaurant while interning as a photographer at a newspaper. I spent every day photographing Cape Cod baseball games, strawberry shortcake festivals, and sandcastle competitions. Whenever I go back to the Cape I feel a slight sting, knowing that time was something that passed and will never be again.
You cannot replicate a place exactly. Sure New York will always be here, but my New York won’t. I’ve kept a list of every restaurant I’ve eaten at since moving to this city. Half don’t exist anymore. And it’s only been 5 and a half years. Since moving here, at least five close friends have moved. In another five years, I may not know anyone else here.
I don’t know if I can visit New York for awhile. It’s like a fresh yet mutual breakup. I’m not ready to see her quite yet. It’s too raw. She won’t be the same in a few years, but then again neither will I. And perhaps we won’t be the right fit for each other. E and I may very well find a new New York. And by then maybe, maybe, I’ll be ready to see her again however briefly that may be.
So much #truth. Thank you @theperfectmom for being brave and unflinching in the face of manufactured perfection. Yes, I am destined to be a Pop Superstar but my abs are not cooperating with my desired reality. I wasn't skinny before. I always had a little extra to go along with my 4o inch hips but my stomach was smooth. It had no dips and ripples. Now it has a divet where the muscle tore at the bottom during #PheonixRiverMountainSky time #inutero. There is a 6 inch scar underneath the pouch I keep with me (for warmth I guess. I need a new comfort blanket 😩😔). It's from my emergency c-section with #PharaohPrinceOceanBreeze(cite older posts for that excursion/miracle!). I have a mound from the hernia I got while having the worst sick session of my life (there was blood) 10 yrs ago. I have horizontal zig zag stretch marks all around my belly button. It doesn't help that everytime I make a delicious cornbread, cookies or cake I also eat it...ALL. My children help but breastfeeding a toddler makes me look for an in between snack after I've been depleted and sliver by sliver, crumb by crumb in my tum, straight to my bum #mommygotbars. @jennacantlose is def helping me get back on track with her photographic inspiration, dope recipes and 6pm-11am fasting schedule (I'm working on it!!! 🍕🍝🍜🍰😲🚫 also how is there no cookie emoji?!). I'm not where I want to be physically but with the combination of planking, yoga, more well rounded meals (thank you #PowerQuickPot), consistent sleep-ish, 420, tea and...y'know 😚😲😥 I feel like I'm getting, feeling and being better. My belly may never again look like it did the day my turnt up young mom lifted my shirt when I was 17. "You have a nice stomach. You should show it." she said as we prepared for one of our runway shows down the streets of #greenwichvillage#stompinggrounds. Plagued with demons of past sexual abuses I had become comfortable in baggier clothes and didnt see the appeal for being sexy and girly, until that moment. It gave me such confidence. It's time to reinvigorate that feeling, #tigerstripes and all. Im living that #highwaistedbikinilife and I'm #unbothered. #ilovemyboys#wouldntchangeathing#motherhood

Before and after facial rejuvenation for youthful appearance but without it being obvious. 💉💉💉 Youthful faces have no shadows, think of a young kids 👦🏻👧🏼. As we get older, fat reduces in our faces, giving us a more chiseled but older appearance. 💉💉💉 Subtle HA filler enhancement makes enormous improvements in terms of youthful appearance if placed in the correct spots without having that “done” look. You know what we mean. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 As in turn, people can’t figure out what is different, only that you look better... is it your hair? Did you get your teeth whitened? 🦷🦷🦷 Or did you just sleep really well to look 10 years younger? 😴😴😴 No one will suspect the filler as the cause. .

I always tell myself I’ll post more occasional non-beauty content, but I’m not very prolific in shooting non-beauty content 😅 Anyways, what are you up to today? I’m currently sipping on a green juice wishing I stuck to my original decision to get a chocolate croissant 🙄
