Visiting the United Nations and watching Beauty and the Beast were our itinerary today.

First, we went to have our breakfast and last preparation before we went to the UN. Yes, preparation. My colleague told me that UN has its own Post Office and stamps, so we decided to send some postcards there. We took about one and a half hour to finish our breakfast, eating only occupied about 15 minutes.

When we arrived, we had to go inside a tent and go through all the standard security procedures, like having your bag x-rayed and you going through the metal detector. People carrying backpacks and big bags cannot enter the building unless they let the security keep them for you.

Once we got inside, there was something that interested us.

There was a shop where you could make your own personalized UN stamps. My colleague and I both ordered some and then posted our postcards with our own stamps.

If you don't want to make your own stamps, you can still go to the UN Post Office to buy the UN stamps.

You can also book a tour to tour around the building. There will be a guide explaining to you the work the UN is doing and showing you some of the meeting halls and exhibits.

As for tonight's musical, it was bravo! It's nothing like what I saw yesterday. Les Miserables is a classic. This one is a typical Disney production. But both win my heart. There are a lot of setting changing in Beauty and the Beast. There are even special effects throughout the whole show. Yes, it's a SHOW. It's a musical that suits the whole family and it makes everyone laugh a lot.

It's a pity that this musical will end on 29 July. However, with its popularity, I think it will be rerun in the future very soon.

Oh, there is one last thing I have to do before I go to bed. I'll go down to the 24-hour store opposite to my hotel to get newest book of Harry Potter.

有自己嘜頭的郵票好過癮呢﹗

Yes, that's fantastic. Hope those who receive my postcard won't think that I'm narcissistic.

You had so much fun on Fifth Avenue today. Did you go to Rockefeller Center today? It is because it located on 5th Ave. too.
Anyway, do you like eating dessert? If yup, I bring to you to go there.
