WW: Imagine Dragons Evolve World Concert NYC 2018

Imagine Dragons is coming to NYC!

Imagine Dragon Evolve Concert NYC 2018

We got the chance to see their concert at Madison Square Garden last week!
It was a blast indeed.

The four of us sang along and danced as they performed all those hits, like Thunder, Demons. and Believer.

Although our seats are quite far from the main stage but we had so much fun!
The performance was top notch and Madison Square Garden is such a wonderful venue for this event. 

Do you like watching concerts as well?
What's your favorite?

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the linky party :)

WW: Michael Arenella's 13th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party

Here comes Michael Arabella's 13th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party

This is the second time my friends and I joined this lovely summer gathering with back-to-20s theme.
Always enjoyable!

This time, the Frakarsas are there :)

It was a lovely picnic with some of our friends and family as well

Enjoy some more photos I took during this party.

My Obi enjoys the day under the sun!

One of the talents! 

Fancy driving a Roll Royce? :)

Such a pretty table arrangement!

Museum of Moving Image, Astoria, NYC

New York City is indeed packed with so many interesting places and landmarks to visit. 
Some of them are one of a kind, something that you can only find in the Big Apple.
The rest are something too good to miss, although most of us are easily overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of this Gotham city.

One of the places that my family loves to visit is the Museum of Moving Image, Astoria, NYC

Have you been to this museum?
I know that op-notch and world-class museums are surely the highlights of NYC, and the Museum of Moving Images is one of the them.

A lot to see, to learn and to try!

I believe movies have become an important part of our lives. 
Not only do they provide entertainment and fun times,  but movies have been frequently used as effective tools for education, culture preservation, as well as social movement and other noble purposes.

So, having Museum of Moving Images situated near our house is really a privilege. 

And it's great to know that this museum is the only one in the United States dedicated to the history, art, and development of moving images, particularly in the US.

Located in Astoria, near Frank Sinatra School of the Arts High School and Kaufman Astoria Studio, this Museum is the home of approximately 130,000 artifacts related to the development of moving images from time to time.

You'll be surprise and surely excited to see those collections of cameras, microphones, wigs, statues, posters, sound and special effects and more properties used in producing moving images, including stop motions and movies. 
Surely there are tons of things to do, as well as tools and skills required, behind the scene before we can enjoy a movie or even a stop motion!

When we went there as a group, we were welcomed in its beautiful and spacious auditorium. There the kids (and the chaperons) were introduced briefly about this museum which was first open for public in 1988.

We then followed the tour where we saw the Behind the Screen exhibition, where thousands of interesting, on-of-a-kind artifacts related to the producing process of movies from different period of time.

remember this?

The mutoscopes from 1899 and 1930s

We saw different kind of cameras and  projectors, mutoscopes (that's the first time I have heard of it :)) as well as all those various equipments for sound recording, as well as costumes (and different kinds of wigs!), models, molds and more.
All of them are displayed with their interesting history and development of those gadgets and technologies all these years.

And don't forget to see the Special Effect section!
Interesting display they have here!
We saw the full-size dummy used in the Exorcist movie, with that scary grin and horrible look just like in the movie! It's one being used to show Regan MacNeil (the girl played by Linda Blair) rotated her head 360 degrees! I know..that famous scene!

Don't forget to try making your own stop motion or try to compose a horror sound effect :).
My kids love them!

Our tour guide showed us how to do it and the kids didn't wait for too long to try making stop motion themselves. It looked simple as we have all the tools needed but I know exactly how complicated it really is, particularly if you combine all those details.

They also have movie screenings. As I read in its website, the Museum screens approximately 400 movies each year, showing a mix of classic and contemporary collections.

When I visited this museum, it was with my kids' school and it costs us $8 per person, with Charlie Chaplin's movie screening. It was great indeed! 

All in all, it was a great visit to a wonderful museum.
Not only that we learned a great deal of new knowledge and information, but it was full of fun and very entertaining as well.

So, if you get a chance, come and visit the Museum of Moving Image, Astoria, NYC.
36-01 35th Ave, Queens, NY 11106

It closes on Mondays and Tuesdays and don't forget to check its opening hours as it has different schedules.

The tickets cost $15 for adults, $7 for youth aged 3 - 17 and $11 for students as well as senior citizens. With NYC ID, I think we can get in here for free.
Go check for more information.

Have fun!

Wonderful Wednesday with Oh My Heartsie Girls

Can you imagine that February is slipping away?
I know, right. It only feels like yesterday as we started the new year and 2 months are almost gone! 

the Bridal Collection Launching with Wardah Cosmetics

So, here's a little wrap up of my week :).

After Anniesa Hasibuan's show at NYFWFall/Winter 2017, she launched a bridal collection as well together with two other Indonesian designers, Mety Choa and Mira Indria. It took place at the Indonesia Fashion Gallery in Midtown Manhattan. You should come and check out its fabulous collections from various Indonesian designers! Plus, we have make-up demonstration from Wardah team, led by my dearest Carolina Septerita, one of the top make-up aryists back home. Ah those flawless make-up I love!

The launching of the Bridal Collection

Then the following day, Anniesa also joined 2 other panelists for the International Fashion and Culture Networking Conference at the Fashion Institute and Technology, NYC. Another cool gig that gave Anniesa the chances to convey more beautiful message she had with her works, passion and talents!

We had Raquel Smith, one of Beyonce's stylist, and Meg Flather from Tatcha Cosmetics, with Verky Arcoa from Latina Magazine. I once again helped Anniesa with her translation and it was a lovely almost-3-hours event :)

But the perk of my week is my son, Bo, being the Student of the Month in his class! So proud indeed!
I just wanted to make sure that my kids enjoy their lovely adventures at school and this is like a lovely bonus :).
Merci ya Rabb..
