all I ever wanted…

about my travelogues, adventures in life, fashion, beauty and the occasional rambling.

Chicago!

I can totally finish this trip in one post and it wouldn’t be extremely long, reason being I was only there for the weekend! x_x Yes it’s kind of stupid, especially since I had to spend close to 2 days in the air but oh wells, we had important things (that I can’t reveal now) to do over there 😉

and the ~20hrs flight x_x

Gonna spam hotel photos now since T’s boss kindly booked a suite for us in downtown Chicago! It was theWit Hotel. I am so glad he booked that for us, because it was just next to where Transformers 3 was set LOL. Probably the main reason why I was excited about the show and did not find it boring like most of my friends.

 

and it was then time to head out! since it was already close to evening time, we decided to just talk a walk around the neighborhood and then settle down for a simple dinner.

 

the evening air was pretty cool and everywhere look serene. except for our dinner place where there were a lot of blacks around. guess we found the wrong place! =/ anyway, just look down and keep to yourself and trouble will not find you. we got a bathbomb from Lush so that we can soak our weariness away.

smells awesome and make our bodies shimmer like Edward Cullen =p

*********DAY 2*********

GOOD MORNING CHICAGO! I was pretty exhilarated that the weather was sooo good =)

 

Famous Chicago River where Transformers 3 was set!

 

Went to Eatt for breakfast, as recommended by the hotel staff. It is a pretty casual place, but not too shabby (like iHop, as T puts it. He says ‘poor people go to Mac and iHop’. *shrugs).

 

after fueling ourselves for the day, we walked to Magnificent Mile to do some shopping with the end destination being Lake Michigan. The Magnificent Mile® is one of the top ten hospitality, fine dining and retail districts in the world, making it One of the Great Avenues of the World. (http://www.themagnificentmile.com/a_great_avenue/)

 

look at how jet-lag T is LOL. yet I remain energetic and still can camwhore in H&M’s changing room. Can’t wait for H&M to arrive in SG. Just 2 more mths baby!

 

see what I mean by perfect weather? Lake Michigan, gorgeous indeed.

 

and that marks the end of the day for me. went for dinner at a steak house near the hotel but I didn’t take any photos because the lights were dim and it seems like a high-class place. Still feeling a bit sore that we can’t go to Mortons or Smith&Wollensky but oh wells, there’s always a next time.

And ta-da, my shopping loots for the day.

and day 3 is nothing much since we met his boss and went to the suburban area talking about how our lives would be like if we really relocate here.

bye Chicago, see you again this Christmas? xoxo.
