#898 NEW YORK DAY
The event of the “NEW YORK Fair”
I went to the event of the “NEW YORK Fair” at Hankyu department in Umeda on May 12th. There were many booth shops with came from New York. The customers could buy from clothes to food.
Drawing impromptu on the nylon bag
I stopped by the nylon bag booth. The artist there was drawing on the nylon bag. The customers could choose a bag from variety of colors and they could also request for any drawings from the artist. Then I picked a vivid pink nylon bag and asked him to draw the buildings of manhatton and a cat. He drew them quickly with a black marker.
It was awesome! I liked that very much! He also drew a mouse on the seperate small nylon bag for me. He was so nice and kind. It costed 2160 yen. I think it worths more than 2160 yen because it is very unique.
That is the N.Y. Yankee’s ice-cream!
Next, I bought an ice-cream. The shop lady gave me a N.Y. Yankee’s small plastic cap, too. It was only 300 yen. Actually I wanted the plastic cap more than the ice-cream.
By the way do you know that the audience in the Yankee Stadium can buy an ice-cream in a plastic yankees cap in N.Y.?
The movie “Metgala”
After I left the event, I headed to the theater to watch the movie “THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY”. The Japanese title is “Metgala”. This is a documentary movie of the creation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s. This movie is about a fashion exhibition in N.Y.C. which I found it fun to see many celebrities in it.
For me, that day was New York Day.
That day, I enjoyed it myself because I felt like I was traveling in N.Y. through the N.Y. event and the movie. Also, they reminded me of my N.Y. trip with my cousin 3 years ago. It helped me to bring back all the memories from the fantastic N.Y. trip.
