celinthecity Finished re-reading The Great Gatsby this morning on my subway ride and it put my mind in a different time ... The #artdeco mural on the facade of the Daily News Building, which I pass everyday on my way to work, fits in with my musings. The inscription comes from a quote by Abraham Lincoln who said, "God must have loved the common man; He made so many of them." 2h

celinthecity Slow tech adapter that I am, while everyone plays with @instagram's new landscape and portrait functions, I've just downloaded #layout and am tripping on the #mirror feature. Can you imagine having 2 #NewYork cities instead of just one? Double the trouble, double the fun! 15h

celinthecity #UNartifact number 10: If you've never had a #Filipino, then you should because #Filipinos are delicious Curiously enough, these come from Portugal and not my motherland (a colleague brought them back after considerable begging on my part). It was quite controversial when Filipinos found out these existed a few years ago. We weren't quite sure whether we should be offended. Now that I've tasted them, I can't really hold a grudge. They're delightful, come in a range of colors, and are apparently better after one hour in cool temperatures How Filipino is that?! 1d

celinthecity I know it's national day but I'll be a rebel and show you a giant #HelloKitty instead 🏽️ This 9-foot tall homage to #kawaii is part of #SebastianMasuda's multi-city, five-year project #TimeAfterTimeCapsule. Kids fill up the sculptures with toys in each city until all sculptures reunite in an uber kawaii sculpture garden at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics! Next time to fill 'er up with memorabilia is this Saturday, August 30 #thatsdarling #myweekoflayers 2d

celinthecity #preach on #wordupwednesday tbh, I'm thinking of this not in the romantic sense but in terms of health because #oldladyconcerns y'know? After a few days of indulging in all things deep fried and fatty, I'm trying to eat more veggies and exercise. Well, at least until the weekend comes around again #protectyoheart #ihavethisthingwithfloors #pursuepretty #postitforaesthetic 2d

celinthecity Lazy #runner tip: If you want to make sure you don't flake out of your morning run, sleep in your running clothes. I woke up this morning wanting to snooze and snuggle deeper into the covers then said, "Oh man" as I realized that I was already dressed to run. Off I went and it was beautiful! Works like a charm every time #tomfruin #kolonihavehus #dumbo #brooklyn 3d

celinthecity As the great world spins, so does this great #globe Famous for its cameos with Clark Kent and Lois Lane, it's sits in one of #NewYork's most beautiful #ArtDeco treasures, the Daily News Building. Take a quick peek the next time you're on 42nd Street! 1w

celinthecity #AboutLastNight: Dinner at #Carbone was incredibly delicious, from the best bread basket I've ever dug into all the way to the boozy Nutella tiramisu! Our #carpaccio piemontese starter was so decadent and delightful 2w
