Takashimaya Department Store

This photo was taken from the 6th floor atrium of the Takashimaya Departmental Store on 5th Avenue and 55th Street. My friend and I were there for afternoon tea last week and decided to shop around afterwards. Most of the stuff sold here are very expensive so I left without buying anything.

So what did you buy recently?

Lovely shapes and colors. Today, I bought a small loaf of sourdough bread shaped like a crab!

A very nice shot! Of course, you can imagine that it must be expensive over there!

I bought a nice linen shirt, size L as usual. Kevin Klein makes them differently. I had to change for a XL; now the sleeves are too long! I will buy a cheaper one next time!

Nice view, Ming.

Just wanted you to know I stopped by. Sorry for lack of comments recently. I have an update on my blog about my surgery and why . . . .

Happy Spring!

Beautiful composition.

Bought today: New MacBook. Daughter dropped the (not-so-)old one. It died. Bless her heart!

Very nice view! It looks pricey. Yesterday, I bought cream cheese and sour cream, and taught my daughter how to make her grandmother's cheesecake.

I've never been in that store, but it does look interesting.

The last thing I purchased were groceries and essentials at Walmart (upstate NY) where the prices are 1/2 those of Manhattan.

I absolutely love that store. It's a pleasure for the eyes, not for the purse! I especially like their flower department: it is so beautiful. I need to go back, just to steal some ideas! ;)
