Sex And Then Some Thai…

I am such a happy girl! Yes, my allergies have been kicking my butt but ayer I had such a great day that I didn’t even notice (well I did but still lol)

I started the day off with some Overnight Oats…which consisted of Oat Bran, Oikos Honey Yogurt, Splenda, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Raisins, and topped with Peanut Butter with my usual Cafe con Leche on the side…


I then did some Bhangra Masala before heading out…

Anyone that knows me in the “Real World’’ knows that I have a slight obsession with Sex and the City! I can recite all the episodes word for word and you can basically quiz me on ANYTHING related to the show and I will know the answer. When I heard that they were making a sequel to the movie, I almost burst with excitement!

I went to the movies with my sister and prima…We got to the theater REALLY early so I got to enjoy some beautiful scenery at Atlas Park before the movie started. If you live in Queens, I recommend going to Regal Cinemas in Atlas Park, it is a beautiful escape.

I spy a Fountain…

After over an hour wait, it was finally time to reconnect with some old friends…

Sex and the City 2 (2010)

If you are a TRUE fan of the show this movie will NOT let you down. I laughed so hard and actually cheered in certain scenes…I won’t give anything away because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but it was a great movie. I already want to go see it again lol.

Side note; If you take your toddlers to the movies in NYC, be prepared to get thrown out by your peers when they start to cry!

After the movies my sister and I headed to Austin Street for din din. We were planning to go to 5 Burros but the wait was too long so my sister suggested that we go the Bangkok Cuisine; Thai Culinary Fusion


I love the atmosphere of this restaurant; the colors are very tranquil….I am a sucker for a Green color scheme.



My pictures don’t do this place any justice; go check out their site and look at their amazing photos.

Bangkok Cuisine has impeccable service…they are very attentive and friendly. We were seated right away and the food arrived just as fast.

We started off with Shrimp and Crabmeat Spring Rolls with Plum Sauce


For her main course, my sister ordered the Rama Shrimp dish which is sautéed Shrimp and Vegetables in Peanut Sauce…


I ordered the Cashew Nut dish which is sautéed Sweet Onions, Scallions, Peppers, Pineapples, Roasted Peppers, Cashew Nuts, and Shrimp


Both dishes came with a side of rice, I chose brown.


The food tasted great, I especially loved my sister’s dish because it was spicy (I heart spicy cuisine). I was kicking myself in the bum for not ordering it myself but the best part of going out to eat with your sis is that you get to share your food! Thanks Jen!

I recommend Bangkok Cuisine to anyone who is looking to eat some delicious Thai food with excellent service!


Today has been a lazy day thus far…I woke up pretty late because I was up half the night with a stuffy nose and coughing. I shared some notes with Jess about SATC on the phone and they pried myself out of bed to run some errands…I then came home and had some Breakfast.

Today my day will consist of studying, working out, baking, and tv watching! Mañana I am heading to NJ to celebrate my nephews birthdays! One just turned 7 ayer and the other will be 9 mañana so today will be a low key day.

How is your weekend going? anything fun? or just relaxing?



  1. I am a total SATC addict as well! I am going tonight to see it with my cousin actually. We are going to have to compare notes once I do! SO EXCITED.

    That thai food looks awesome. Also - Atlas Park is so close to my parents house...I used to go there all the time! The NYSC there was my first real gym.

    Have fun at your nephews bday party!

  2. I am DYING to see this movie and am so happy to hear that it wasn't a let down. I was nervous because the fist movie was so amazing!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I am drooling over that meal. YUM!! Glad you had fun at the movie, girls nights are just the best, SATC or no SATC :-)

  4. OMG I love the name of this post---two of my fave things hahahahaha.

    I can't wait to see SATC! I am so happy to hear it was good and you liked it. I wish there was a SATC channel that would play all the episodes on a loop 24.7. they just automatically put me in a good mood.

    Those spring rolls look fabulous--have a fun time in dirty jersey tomorrow :)

  5. I can't WAIT to see the movie!! I am going with my cousin and aunt in a couple weeks (it's the only time we ALL had free...). I hear it wasn't the best, but I am a DIE HARD fan like you so I know I will love it either way. And bring kids to the movie?? Only losers would do that!!! That's pathetic.

    Have fun in Jersey!

  6. You should get an award for the title of this post.

    I freaking LOVE SATC- I haven't seen the first movie yet (I KNOW, I KNOW!) but am going to soon. For SURE then we can compare notes.

    You can share my food aaaaaaaaaanytime. Just not that there wil never be spice. Ever. Except my spicy power-fu, but if I find it spicy I am thinking you won't.

    No weekens plans here. It's 7pm on Sunday now!

  7. I completely missed the boat with SATC! I never watched the show and now I feel like I need to rent all of the DVDs so I can get in on the fun! The movie sounds like such fun!

  8. That shrimp and veggies in peanut sauce dish looks so delicious! I just got back from a yoga retreat so my weekend was wonderful. Hope yours is fabulous as well!

  9. just relaxing this weekend. nothing too thrilling.

    don't you just love overnight oats? fantabulous!
    I have never seen SATC, but heard from everyone who saw the movie that it was fantastic!!

    looks like a pretty day in the park!

  10. Hee, I have the entire collection of SATC...and yet have not watched an episode. It was a gift. seeing that you're so enthusiastic towards it, I guess I should take a peek at it. :-)

    ooh yummy Thai food! Seems like many bloggers had a similar craving as you!

  11. The Thai looks great. I wish we had some around here. Glad you enjoyed the movie. I really want to see it. I wonder when they will show it on the base. We get movies, but they are a bit after they are out in the US.

  12. I am so jealous you went to see it already! I haven't had a chance to yet and I am dying! Ps.. update on my dog (since I didn't respond on Twitter about it yet) - she was supposed to have surgery last week but they changed it to this week due to a blood problem she was having.

  13. I can't wait to see SATC2! The Thai place looks fab, I love it spicy too! Hope you had a great day!

  14. The food looks SO good!! I'm glad you liked SATC - my mother-in-law and sister-in-law really liked it, but I wasn't so much a fan :( I mean, I still LIKED it, but it wasn't the same and I thought a few things were a stretch as far as "working" in the story line. BUT, I'm glad I saw it! Have a great week, my dear!

  15. i cannot WAIT to see SATC!!!so glad you didnt give anything away! :) I am obsessed as well! (whio isnt?!?!)

    yummmayyyy stirfry!

    my weekend was GREAT! relaxing and took a HUGE technology break!

  16. I had a great weekend! Spent time with the fam, and my best friend got married. It rocked! I wanna see that movie so bad!

  17. If you want to see the movie again..I am there! I need a girl to go with lol. That thai place looks delicious! I walk by there pretty much every day so I must go!

  18. Your blog title scared me for a moment! LOL!

    Mari I have missed loads of your posts, will have to have a "Mari Day" and catch-up with your antics.

  19. I am obsessed with SATC too. I've decided to rewatch the show because I miss it. I love Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha so much. The movie was pretty good! A little cheesy but in a funny SATC way.

  20. I really enjoyed the movie too. I agree that it's good for people who loved the show!
