Video: Blogging Fails & A Bus Ride Through Brooklyn Chinatown

So lately I've been meaning to write more "Hey look at this cool stuff out the real world" posts. I do live in New York City after all, and some people consider that to be an interesting place - go figure. A week or two ago I went to Fei Long Supermarket in Brooklyn Chinatown with the intent of documenting the experience, but when we got there it was like this:


Packed to the gills, yo. Who wants to be the jerk in everybody's way just because they're trying to take pictures of bread with funny names? Not me. We did end up buying groceries (always a good thing to do in a supermarket), but alas my photography efforts were a fail. So instead I took a rather melancholy video of the bus ride home:


Those rain stains on the window represent my TEARS. (OK, maybe I'm exaggerating.)

Have any of your recent blogging/photography efforts failed? Should I try to visit Fei Long again and document the experience? Is rain how the sky expresses its feelings? THINK ABOUT IT.

  1. OH. No wonder you know so much about New York...


    It's kind of interesting that every Chinatown looks essentially the same. Like... China... OTL (I would definitely be interested in seeing more about your life in New York, though!)

  2. Haha yes, living in New York does increase my knowledge of it somewhat. What you say is sort of true though... the storefronts in most Chinatowns really do look similar. The biggest difference is usually the width of the roads, strangely enough!

  4. I never noticed that before until I took this video! Not sure if it's been there a while or what... there are so many shops that it's easy to overlook some of them as you pass by.

  8. They could be tears. I understand the feeling of being excited about a post that doesn't turn out as hoped.

  9. It's actually not very far away at all, but the bus has to make a million stops so it does end up taking a while, haha!

  10. It's an excuse for me to go buy food again, so I'll survive. I think I enjoy grocery shopping more than the average person...
