12 月是一年最後的月份，也意味著聖誕節的到來，每個城市都有自己的獨特的靈魂，慶祝聖誕節的方式也不盡相同。讓女人迷作者 Louise 帶你看紐約城市冬天雪白的聖誕風景，透過文字和照片，彷如我們也跟著 Louise 在紐約晃了一圈，一路上的迷人的櫥窗佈景、舞台劇的聲光、Lady M 千層派甜而不膩的奶油滋味，彷彿還在舌尖、眼底，那麼歷歷在目。（同場加映：【蔡宜樺專欄】紐約教我的十件事：靠自己，永遠最實在）
My Japanese classmate Natsu and I had a New York weekend getaway. Different from what I've experience before in summer, this time Manhattan in winter is like a Christmas wonderland with holiday magic. You just can't help but feel festive everywhere.
Natsu is one of my closest friend in Boston. Maybe because both of us had visited each other's country for many times before, or maybe because we have the exact same class schedule this semester, it's just quite natural for us to become friends.
It's interesting to communicate with her. Since Taiwan and Japan share similar cultures, we sometimes type or write Chinese characters to each other when there is something we don't know how to say in English.
Traveling with a classmate is like a graduation trip. Natsu is obsessed with black pieces and she usually wears fur accessories to give a feminine touch for her look.
這次承蒙同學的福借住在親戚家一宿，第二晚和同學幸運用 Hotwire.com 標到五折的 W Hotels， 房間內冷冽的現代設計風格，就像 W 的 logo 一樣極簡俐落：（推薦你看：專訪 W TAIPEI Insider 徐新瑜：如果這個工作只讓你感到快樂，你應該離開了）
Thanks to Natsu that I could stay at her relative's place for one night. And then luckily, we booked W hotels with 50% off on hotwire.com. I love the sleek and modern interior style of W hotels. Just like their famous W logo design, it's simple yet powerful.
晚上從 Rockefeller Center 看完聖誕樹後，再繼續走到 Saks Fifth Avenue 看光彩奪目的燈光大秀，配合著名的耶誕櫥窗裝飾，今年以童話「An Enchanted Experience」為主題，用現代手法重新詮釋大家耳熟能詳的故事。聲光活動俱佳的秀精彩非常，我們著迷到早晚都各去一次欣賞不同時光的美景。
The Christmas windows at Saks Fifth Avenue are simply amazing. The whole "An Enchanted Experience" show includes fairy tales scenes which are rendered in an Art Deco style, video projections, light display and music. Everything is unbelievably spectacular.
The window of Cinderella depicts a moment when she arrived at the Saks Fifth Avenue Ball.
"Once upon a time in New York, Cinderella fell madly in love with a pair of designer shoes."
And here comes my favorite Sleeping Beauty window.
"Once upon a time in New York, the Sleeping Beauty had a trouble adjusting to the city that never sleeps."
另外這次也觀賞了出乎意外好看的音樂劇 Matilda，在 TKTS 購入打六折的 Matilda， 在零度低溫下的冷風中排隊半小時果然還是值得的。
We also watched the fantastic Matilda musical in Broadway. It was totally beyond my expectation and I almost burst out into tears at the end of the show. Waiting in line at TKTS for 40% off tickets for 30 minutes at 32ºF was worth it.
最後以品嘗 Lady M 的千層派結束吧！招牌抹茶口味清爽不膩，濃郁的栗子口味也頗討人喜愛，不管哪個口味都綿密柔滑如絲綢，一入口就在舌尖處融化，讓人回味無窮。外帶可以省去小費不無小補，叉子也做得很有質感。Lady M 目前在紐約有三間分店：
The Lady M mille crepes ended our little trip perfectly. Both the green tea and maroon flavors tasted like silk and melted immediately right on the tip of my tongue. There are currently three Lady M stores in NY that you can purchase their famous mille crepes.
