    • Shibuya in the Spring
      Today we take a photowalk around the Shibuya area on a sunny Spring day with the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Starting off at Tower Records. CD's are still popular in the land of the rising sun and probably one of the few places left on earth where you can walk down a street and still see CD retail stores. Back when I used to buy CD's, I would ri […]

Despicable me. +Outing in the city.

This afternoon, me and my friends went for an outing in the City.
First grabbed a animation movie – “Despicable Me”, Coming back home, was quite pleased to find out that this weekend it topped box offices with $60.1 million in sales – twice, what the produces expected!*
Movie is really great, highly recommend! Just please take you time, while you at the theater – ending credits are hilarious!

Way to build a snow mountain.

Back overseas I do remember snow being loaded on trucks and taken outside the city to melt. Here, shovel trucks and huge tractors just pile it all up somewhere in the corner. Here’s one of several gigantic snow mounds on the parking lot of a local shopping mall.

And then it really started to snow.

It is true what they say: “Be careful what you wish for.” In previous article I was elaborating on how we finaly got some snow this season. And here we have it, and whole lot of it. Was literaly digging out my car this morning.

Night in the City.

Well, seems like it had become a habit for me to go out to the City almost every weekend. Not like I don’t like it, it’s just uncommon to me. And just this afternoon we finally got snow in New York City, it started snowing around 2 o`clock in the afternoon, we’ll probably get around 1.5 to 2 centimeters of snow tonight.

Window shopping in the City.

Once a month every Tuesday New York Exchange User Group Meet takes place at Microsoft offices on Manhattan. Couple of months ago I had a pleasure of becoming a member. Haven’t closely used Exchange server in any of it`s versions ‘till senior project came along and I had to deploy one in production environment. It was somehow easy to master, though it is so much more to learn about it’s livers.
Clocked out off work early this morning and went to the City to see Christmas decorations, specifically Lord and Taylor store windows. It has become a tradition for Lord and Taylor, Marshals and alike, to decorate their windows with holiday themes.

Halloween in New York City.

Saturday, October, 30th. Halloween eve in New York City. Crowds of dressed up locals, mixed with tourists scowing all around Manhattan. Frankly saying, living in NYC  for five years that’s my first going out dressed in Halloween costume. Day was just great sent to a karaoke bar in midtown, then to a small restaurant in Korean district. It’s a pity that rain, that started late in the afternoon spoiled all the fun. It was drizzling when we went to a Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. So we had to skip it and head home. An hour later, just the time I came back to my place it started raining cats and dogs.

Overall I had lots of fun, thanks to the blokes that invited me…

Yours truly, Al-Tank.

A Day in the City.

During the week it was decided to go to the “City” – Manhattan it is. Frankly saying, I’m not a very frequent guest there, been to a different parts of the City here and there couple of times. Personally, I fancy driving more than taking subway, considering the fact that it’s anywhere from hard to impossible to find parking in the City the only unpleasant option remains to take a subway. Sometime I’ll elaborate on New York transit system, but for now just a brief review of today’s trip.
