Thank you @nybg for this incredible honor, and thank you @ny1 . this meant more than you’d ever know to me and my family. the nybg was my mom’s favorite place in the city and she would take me there before i was old enough to walk. she held my 4th birthday party there and passed away a few months later. this meant so much to me and my dad. my mom would’ve been so happy.
the vanda awkwafina is native to singapore, and is now a part of the @nybg ‘s orchid collection and exhibition.
Red carpet!! man, what a magical night.
Happy as a hippo
