Ten Hours Journey To Las Vegas

WOKE UP AT 6am... Time to start off a 7 days trip to Las Vegas, Nevada... It is a long long drive, almost 8 hours and by the time the five of us got ready, it was almost 8am.  Yes, we are in our gokden age, cannot be rushed even though we planned to start our journey at 5am initially.  But I am glad that the driver did not manage to wake up,at 4am but at 6am instead!  Lol.... That is certainly a great relief to me....

Took our simple breakfast at In n Out fast food diner... I could manage to eat one whole burger by myself, that is very surprising for I never like burgers at all, but only in this In n Out, Imcan easily eat the whole hamburger by myself without sharing.
 
This is the one....best burger I ever tasted...
 
A long 8 hours journey...
 
Stopped halfway to chevk with the tallest thermometer...
 

Very hot weather over here in Nevada...
 
  
Stopped again to take a look at the "aliens" in town....
 
Then it was all the way again to Las Vegas... Reaching our resort at around 6am...
Yes, our journey took around 10 hours on a freeway....
But yours truly was very comfortable all the way....

Homemade Pork Jerky And Meat Prawn Springrolls

WHEN WE ARE NOT OUT SHOPPING, we spend time cooking at home.... This trip is a relaxing one for us, no rush now since we are in our golden age.  :). When it comes to cooking, we plan it one day in advance so that everything we need to have is within reach.  One fine evening, we decided to do some pork jerky again and tgat task was given to me as usual.  And another dish suggested is Lobak with beancurd skin, minced meat and prawns.  Yes, we brought over some beancurd skin from Malaysia....

The night before the cooking started, we marinated our meat somthat they are well seasoned for next day's cooking and baking....
 
All the ingredients added...
 
After all being mixed... The minced meat is very fine....
Into the fridge it goes... Very well marinated for the whole night....
 
Into the oven it goes the next day...
 
Time to cut it up....
 
Turned over to get the right colour...

One pound of pork jerky done...
 
My sister's specialty..... Lobak aka Or Hiang...or Springrolls...
 
Fry them in slow fire....
 
Some parts went missing as the frying was being done....
Test tasting was the excuse... Lol...
 
That was the remainder when lunch was served...
 
Our humble lunch... Springrolls, Kimchi, cucumber salad, ginger chicken, big onion omelette...
Very Blurry picture... Must be due to the hunger.... Lol...

Karaoke Session With The Dancing Queens

WEEKEND CAME AND WE TURNED INTO SINGERS!!! Lol.... 

My sister arranged for a Karaoke session at the KP dine and wine... There are certain packages to choose from, since there were only six of us ladies, we opted for the minimum package of $60. It comes with three hours non-stop singing, two pizzas and two side dishes, fried chicken wings and sausages...plus three types of drinks.  Not a bad deal actually.... And we were ushered to a small room with two mikes, two tamborines and powerful music!  
Not wanting to,waste time, we quickly choose our songs from a big text folder and our enjoyment began... Yes, we took a couple of videos of purselves, singing our voices out and dancing to the rock music... Lol... Not fit to be published here though, I wouldn't want to make my readers "tortured" in a way... Lol...

When our three hours singing session was over, it was so much fun that we started planning our next Karaoke outing again... We are looking forward to our practice again... American Idol... Here we go!!  Lol...
 
Getting ready to be picked up... Lol...
      
With my Filipino and Candian friends....
Looking forward to singing and dancing with you girls again!!
