Wonderful Wednesday with Oh My Heartsie Girls

The first week of 2018!
May 2018 be bold, joyful, adventurous and blessed.

I am so full of hope and also prayers for my late father-in-law, our wonderful Datuk Lukman, who passed away a couple days ago. May he rest in peace.

As for 2108, we are embracing another period of big change in the family as we are moving back to Indonesia in July 2018 after being assigned in NYC for more than 4 years. Well, a lot of adjustments are in the horizon but we'll nail it, insha allah, if God permits. 
And let the journey and adventure continue :)

First days of 2018 have been a melangé of grief and excitement indeed, 
but we are ready for 2018.

We were out to Times Square on the 2nd of January 
and the place still has the celebration vibe.
And packed as always.

Saying hi to 2018 with big furry, cuddly friend :)

Giant Ferris Wheel in Times Square

You might be wondering where exactly this giant ferris wheel is in Times Square.
As if Times Square is not crowded enough with those huge billboards, blinding lights, street performers and constant noises. Times Square indeed ..
The intersection of the world :).

We finally got a chance to try it in one of the long weekend days we enjoyed some time ago.
Originally, I promised Bo et Obi to get Sponge Bob's toys, but then we ended up lining up for this lovely giant ferris wheel in Toys' R Us Times Square. 

Yes, Ferris Wheel :).

the giant ferris wheel
We have come to this store many times but never really tried it.
and we realized that it would be fun indeed to try it.

So, we went to the lower floor, bought the tickets for USD 5 per person (kids 2 y.o and under are free) then lined up waiting for our car.

the ticket

There are several cars in there, including toys story, megablocks, fisher price and my little pony, Obi's favorite. She really wanted to ride the wheel on that car but we couldn't choose the car. So whatever we had in front of u will be ours. That's the rule.

At that time when we lined up, it was not very crowded, so the kids were okay and not really that crancky for queueing too long.

While waiting, we were looking at those cars and hoped for the little pony one. But I have said to Bo et Obi that whatever  car we have, that's what we'll take.

Once you are hopping to your car, the staff from the store took your photo that you can purchase after the ride. Perfect for souvenirs for those who just come to NYC, I suppose.

colorful cars..

We managed to get the M&M's car and it's super cute as well :).
Once we buckled up, we were ready to go up ...

Bo was slightly nervous when we were on top but I said stop looking down and tried not to move around. It was a bit wiggly, but if we stayed still, it's pretty nice and safe.

These are some snaps from above :)

Obi was enjoying the ride :)

cheeers....look at Bo's face :)

Hellooooo Mr. Superman :)

Do you like Ferris Wheel as well? or you prefer other attractions?
