Hi to all my friends,neighbors and clients...i know its been a couple of weeks and some of you "lovingly" sent me emails reminding me ! i was away and when i got back i hit the ground running...for such a slow market, we have been very fortunate to still have so much activity in our area...the skeptics are realizing that their favorite house is not just sitting there till it hits rock bottom but instead is selling at a good market value...I'm not disagreeing with the experts that we are in a recession, but the houses in Forest Hills are still much higher in value than they were 5 years ago as opposed to our neighbors in Queens...Like i said before, it's not a Flipping time but time to invest for at least 5 years to see a substantial rise. I still think real estate is a better investment than the stock market...i rather enjoy my money as it grows, than play Russian Roulette with it...
Well I visited Atlas Terminal Mall the other day after a few weeks, and expected the usual tumbleweed to blow through, but to my surprise it was pleasantly filled with shoppers and families buzzing by the fountain...the restaurants were filled and you actually had to wait a few minutes for a table...i was thrilled...so much was invested in this mall for our community and we really should support it...my kids would kill me if they knew i said this but they actually ask me to take them there just so they could run through the fountains...off course they are too old but heck i run through with them and we get cooled off and then go to Orange ( a great little restaurant right in the fountain area)...Another one of our favorite family (and also romantically fun) place is Shiro Japanese Restaurant... you will laugh and eat all in one ! ! You are seated on a table of 10 people (strangers, unless you are a group of ten) then they take your order, the chef arrives to your table with his materials in a cart and the show begins ! ...as they grill they make jokes and perform with the food and utensils...you eat, laugh, and talk to strangers ! ask for the Shiro Card so you could get 10 percent off your meal on certain days...definitely worth a try ! For Delicious Italian Cuisine, and Comfortable atmosphere i highly recommend Pasticcio's Restaurant ! Well i also made another find that was pleasantly surprising...Chico's ....I know, I know... i also thought its a place my mom would shop but i honestly found some really great stuff !! They are having a 50 % off their already 50 % off stuff !!! i got some great linen pants and skirts ! ;for 20 dollars and less ! i know i sound like an advertisement.. hehe..but really they have good quality clothes that are pretty simple so they could be dressed up with anything..it reminds me of the Gap but better quality and you wont see yourself coming down the street on Austin ! hehe... i got simple, solid skirts and pants and dressed them up with my own style tops...i love the fact they are mostly lined.. also they have a funny size system that makes you feel skinny hehe..im a size 1 hehe...sometimes a .5 ! you'll seeeee... the women there must work on commission cuz they are sooooo helpful, i almost had to beat her out of my dressing room..hehe... but seriously, check it out cuz i was pleasantly surprised...happy shopping !
