New Office! Jamaica! Twitter!

I have TWO pieces of super exciting news and ONE piece of silly news.

First the exciting!

EXCITING NEWS ONE
I moved work offices! I left the real estate group I was with (but stayed in the same company) to expand my own business.

My new office is in TRIBECA at 90 Hudson Street. I have not formally mentioned it here, but I am a real estate agent with Prudential Douglas Elliman. I took after my super nice mom who is in real estate. She is a partner with the Prudential Hawai’i office where it’s called Prudential Locations. If you ever need real estate assistance or know of anyone who does…whether it be in NYC, Hawai’i or anywhere in between, please let me know! I do residential sales and high end rentals ^_^

Oh! And my new office is two blocks away from Corton and La Colombe, and one block from Locanda Verde. We are located directly across the street from Chanterelle, and a two-minute walk to Bouley Bakery and Grandaisy Bakery. So if we ever work together (which I hope we will!), there will be plenty of food involved, heheh.

ahh, happiness at felidia’s

EXCITING NEWS TWO
Zubair and I are (planning) to go to Jamaica at the end of October. We have not been before. Any suggestions? We’re coming with big appetites. We’ll be there five days and plan to eat, dance, and nap on the beach a lot ^_^

SILLY NEWS ONE
…has to do with this crazy thing called Twitter. Considering how much time I spend on the computer, I don’t know much about technology. On the right side of your Twitter homepage is a line that says “@name.” Mine is “@kathyylchan.” If you click on that, you see all the instances in which someone has mentioned you in a tweet.

I DID NOT KNOW THIS FUNCTION EXISTED (until Kathyrn pointed it out yesterday ^_^)

This is why I never responded to those tweets :/ including this one:

“danimop@kathyylchan just saw you have breakfast at locanda verde!! I wanted to say hi but I was too shy. I hope you enjoyed your meal!”

So I want to apologize and say Hiii Danielle!! Thank you! You must have seen me with Robyn. Breakfast was awesome ^_^

That’s all the news for today :) Hope everyone is having a happy week!

    Yea, I'm always curious how come you don't pursue a culinary-related career or you just have a passion for real estate as well. :)

    Congrats.Next, download Tweetdeck. It's a free application that makes using Twitter more intuitive (and useful).For example, it will let you view separate columns for All the folks you follow, mentions of you, direct messages to you from people you follow, as well as for search terms like "real estate" or "brunch" or "Manhattan" that you may want to chime in on to expand your network. Hope that helps. Barry

    for jamaica, make absolutely sure you try Ting. It is a white grapefruit soda that goes perfectly with anything spicy :)

    i've encountered so many people who don't know about the @yourname feature on twitter — it's a lifesaver. anyway, congrats on the job. it's always funny to learn what people do in real life. the jamaica trip sounds great.

    Congraz on the move! I wish I could be there too. Lower Manhattan is so much more fun! PS, you got me addicted to Abraco and the magic pastry lady there! :)

    Jamaica! So exciting. There is so much to see and do in Jamaica. I have a feeling you will be in Mo Bay or Negril both beautiful places. If you have time try to stray of the resort and enjoy pan chicken (only comes out at night, chicken grilled in an oil drum that is converted into a grill) and go to Juici Pattie and get a cheese pattie (beef pattie with cheese baked in)Both of these items are cheap eats but very good none the less.

    Some Jamaican foods you need to try are ackee and saltfish(our national dish), curried goat, mackerel rundown, hardo bread, fried plantain just to name a few. Enjoy your trip.
