Day Trip to New York-24 August, Sunday

I was terribly jet lagged when I arrived in USA on Saturday morning. By the time I checked into Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, I was dead tired. After checking my emails and running downstairs to buy a cup of coffee and a stale cheese croissant, I plonked onto the bed and fell into deep slumber till 11pm. By then, it was too late to go out for some food and I reckon the hotel's room service will bring up terrible tasting food grudgingly (Room service ends at 12am for ordering food). I was too lethargic to bother about my whiny stomach, took a shower, planned my New York trip a little and went back to sleep. After all, I needed to leave my hotel at 6.20am for the train station to catch the 6.57am service to New York's Grand Central Station.
How I looked for the day: (Believe me, this is the only day I bothered to take pictures of myself in the room. Yes, I am this lazy).
I wore a mustard yellow Forever 21 tube dress with crochet trimings. It's a little dressy though. But hey, it's New York. I changed into sensible flats before getting out-which is one of the most sagacious decisions I have made this year. ;-)

The train station at a Dunkin' Donuts counter where the half asleep duo serve coffee, donuts and muffins with faces more sour than their sour cream bagel. I settled for a bland latte and a putrid looking blueberry muffin (of course I didn't finish that!).

And here are the rest of the trip to Grand Central-in the form of a slideshow. I will continue my Sunday in New York entry tonight.
