Hello all, today I want to share my favorite Chinese restaurant in NY. this Szechuan Mountain House in East village is the best Szechuan food in the city. My Chinese friend took me to this place, one night and I am not kidding, I needed to go back there next day.
Hello ! I went to the new observatory in NYC, “Summit” in January and I never wrote about it and I was able to take some amazing pictures and wanted to share with you.
The experience of Summit was overall great. This building was beautifully done and collaborated with nice art works that it was more than just an “Observatory” experience. People were taking pictures and upload them on Instagram, Facebook, it was 360 degree photogenic look. You definitely need sunglasses, walls are all mirrored that the sun kills your eye! If you just want the overall NYC view, maybe the downtown one “One World” was a good view I believe. This observatory is in the middle of buildings that you literally feel like you are floating in the center of the city.
For anybody who wants to compare the view from the One World observatory, I leave some pictures from a few years ago. Not a good picture though 🙂
I recall that the “One World” observatory was more touristic attraction in a good way. It was a lot of sound and movie effect.
I was looking for picture of the Empire State building observatory but couldn’t find. .. It was like 7 years ago I went ? People say the Top of the Rock has better views because you can see the Empire State building. Please leave comments if you have your favorite observatory in NYC !
Lastly, I am putting my selfie ! Covered by mask and sunglasses. lol
I visited Shakuff showroom in Brooklyn and wanted to share the experience.
I went to Industrial City in Brooklyn where Japan village is. Once in a while,I need to have a Onigiri from Sunrise Mart food court. They are so good… After that I was walking around and saw “Shakuff” showroom. There are many furniture showrooms in the Industrial City, but I have never seen this one and immediately walked in ! I actually knew the name, but never really knew that they have a showroom here.
They have these all custom made chandeliers and sconces.
The greatest thing of this lighting manufacture is that they can make any size, quantities and lengths of the lights. That is unbelievable helpful when you have a big space like lobby, foyer, staircases or any public spaces. Designers spend hours and hours to look for the correct size lighting sometimes !
Is it true, or joke. So are we excepting beatitude aurora in the sky tonight ? Or are we expecting all pure soul New Yorkers looking at the sky and nothing will happen ? lol
Unfortunately it is pretty cloudy today. Well, most of the weekends are all rain and cloud in NYC, which happened last few months. Then this articles might be true, because you won’t make a joke for something that it won’t definitely happen because of weather. We may really just miss out the aurora because of this nasty continuous cloudy weather in NYC ? Anyway, we will find out in a few hours 🙂
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. My name is Mariko Semba Martinez. I am originally from Japan and live and love New York City. I am an interior decorator, have established my company in 2015 to decorate apartments, houses, events, as well as drafting works, blue prints, furniture drawings and and also still have a contract to work for another interior design company.
I also love traveling ! Experiencing new things and meeting new people are absolutely my passion. I can’t wait to share things I see and connect to the world and you guys.

I visited my job site today, this is for the interior design company I have a contract with, so it is not only my personal work, but I am one of the manager for this project.
I loooooove this job site, the reason is because I worked with everybody before, so I know everybody and how they work, and everybody is so respectful and professional. Ah I love it so much.
As you can see, it is major remodeling, it is a pre-war building in upper west side, currently framing and working on electrical work. I personally like this part of the remodeling because you can see the new layout coming along.
I am going to order some wedge lights and down lights for new dropped ceiling, tub, etc.
