Relief For Heel Pain

All those hours of walking and shopping during my vacation, my feet began to show their tiredness especially the heel.  Though I was wearing some soft padded shoes, my right side heel still ached, I couldn't imagine what my feet would feel if I wore something else.  My sister and I went for a feet massage but it was only a temporary relief.  To treat heel pain, I found out that we need to seek out this website for more information.

Jack In The Box In Nevada

On the very third day morning in Las Vegas, we set out for a day trip to Hoover Dam in Nevada and Lake Havasu in Arizona.  It was another long drive for us and I want to compliment my BIL for taking over the wheel throughout the long drive... he is really fantastic!

Before we set out, we dropped by at this fast food outlet... Jack In The Box...
Jack In The Box
(but I don't see any box nor Jack... )
I had this for my breakfast.. 
waffle pancake with beef and cheese!!
how many calories??   shhhhh.....
BIL brought us these from the convenience store next door...
 
Gosh... so so sweet!!!  I couldn't even finish one of them!
After our breakfast and filling up fuel....
it was back on the road again....a long straight stretch of road...
BIL drove endlessly.. he is really good actually...
no complaints of tiredness..
while the rest of us either dozed off 
or eating junk food in the car..
Along the way, he would tell us the "history" and "geography" of each place we pass...
But I think he would be very disappointed in me if he reads this..
Cos I couldn't remember much of what he had said...  LOL...


Agriculture Land

Along the freeway, I passed by many green fields and I was told that Sacramento is one of the largest agriculture land in California.  I could see acres and acres of land covered with corn and grapes among others.  The land must be very fertile for farming purposes and I could see herds of cows and horses grazing in the fields.  I am sure this kerrits website will come in handy for horse lovers...

Tahiti Mai Tai Make Me High...

The weather in Las Vegas is very hot, I have never experienced such heat but then it is dry, I didn't sweat at all but I could feel my skin like being "burn".. so sunblock lotion is an very important item.. never leave home without it... I kept applying the cream on my arms and try to cover my face as much as I could... not surprising if more pigmentation appearing on my face now that I am home...

No wonder my BIL didn't want to join us during that afternoon to the strip... instead he invited us to go to Tahiti Lounge for a "Mai Tai".... I looked at him with a "questionably look" but followed all the same....
he took us to Tahiti lounge... and ordered ...
"Mai Tai Cocktail"
Mai Tai translates from Tahitian means "Out of this World." 
A glass consists of rum, lime juice, orange, orgeat syrup... 
nice dining lounge...
but I prefer to sit here and joined in the crowd... 
he ordered some spicy chicken wings with mango sauce...
*out of the world too*
Cheers!!  
Half way through, I felt that "I am out of the world...."
Mai Tai.... you made me high!!

Mirage And Trump Hotel In Las Vegas

From New York New York, the shuttle bus took us to Mirage Hotel... another amazing place I was told that I must visit... in fact all the enormous hotels along the strip are worth going into... when it is nightfall, some hotels display spectacular and colorful sights for the public to behold...
The Mirage...
On the way to the Mirage, there are awesome sights to admire... 
something "golden" caught my eyes...
wow.. so Donald Trump has his own hotel here in Vegas too!
according to my sister, the hotel rates are not expensive... 
there are so many of them.... 
love their landscaping... 
inside the Mirage lobby....
we spent half hour at the Mirage hotel..so much to see... 
at the lounge showing the "Beatles"
at the Secret Garden inside the hotel...
I heard from my sister that there is a "volcano eruption" at the entrance of hotel...
but too bad I didn't manage to watch it...
After the half hour tour with my sister, we caught the shuttle bus
which took us back to Tahiti Village Resort...

New York At The Strip

After a good night rest, I was awakened by the smell of bacon and eggs! Many thanks to my BIL for preparing american breakfast for the whole family.... how blessed we are!
 busy preparing... he doesn't want anyone to "disturb" him... 
that is fine with me.. LOL...
My first time with bagel and bacon!
After our breakfast, we didn't want to waste time and 
off we went to New York, New York along the strip...
New York! New York!
Sexy, Fun and.... Acrobatic...
we were contemplating.. which to watch... 
in the end, we chose neither of these... 
 and we walked around... in awe...
reminded me of Gentings indoor theme park... 
tired... rested awhile in front of the dobi shop...
ooopss.. toilet also didn't escape from my camera....
clean and nice...
soon it is time to satisfy our stomach...
and these sirloin beef caught my eye... really looks good!
eventually I settled for a fresh oven pizza!
while some went for the roller coaster ride, 
me and my mom continued to linger around taking pictures...

The truth is, a lot of us don’t realize the damage our chosen lifestyles are exerting on our health and bodies.

We sit in office chairs that may not be conducive to good posture, or we spend hours bent over our laptops just to finish some work.
