Tim Yap "Upwards" Birthday Party | 71 Gramercy

My friend Tim Yap threw a print on print themed Birthday party at 71 Gramercy (which we all know is the highest point in the metro) perfectly appropriate I think as the the venue suited his new mantra for 2014 which is “Upwards” or as the birthday boy would like to say “Yapwards” Really fun […]
