Vegas And I

It is like a dream come true for me when I finally “landed” in the city of Las Vegas.  For many suns and moons I have been hoping to see the bright city lights as shown on television and movies and all those years, I have never thought that my dream would come true one day.  This is one vacation that I have enjoyed the most and most of the time during my holiday, I have been thinking about them and wishing that they were together with me as well.  We would have lots of ideas for activities they would enjoy especially in the resorts I was staying, something like old Vegas.d Vegas. As much as we love the high-end Vegas resorts, there is a definite benefit to the old resorts, too. There's an easy kind of low-key civility in the older posh hotels. The pace is slower. The people seem friendlier. The clientele is chiefly made up of Vegas veterans, experienced travelers and locals.

Experienced Vegas visitors know the best spots. This helps the established Vegas hotels retain a lot of their own flavor. At Tropicana Las Vegas, for instance, our rooms were big and comfortable with adjoining rooms.  Parents with kids will love these and I am sure my kids will enjoyed themselves tremendously too!  It was a short walk to the Tropicana pool, often voted the best Las Vegas swimming pool. The pool area takes up two acres filled with lush tropical landscaping.  While kids can enjoy themselves in the swimming pool, adults like me will feel comfortable leaving them at the  poolside while I could venture out elsewhere for a while. The pool area is well-supervised. The security is evident but not obvious. Upon our returned, we found him still in the cabana area. It turns out he had enjoyed a couple of hours investigating the tropical ambiance within the landscaping.

Other older hotels have their own individual personalities and charm. They each retain a unique piece of old Vegas. Some have distinctive landscaping, transporting the visitor to somewhere far away. Some have the old Vegas flavor to their architecture. Still others have activities that don't involve gaming, such as wonderfully lavish showrooms. Each hotel, old and new, is an attraction in and of itself. No two hotels are alike and all welcome visitors, though some attractions are reserved for hotel guests.

I had a wonderful vacation with my family members, all of us had an awesome time looking at the bright lights and spectacular sights along the strip. Even my young teenaged nephew enjoyed himself tremendously, he told us that he found so many other things for him to see and explore. On our last day, we attended a show that was a tribute to the Rat Pack era, one of the many Vegas heydays. Still, that's the thing about Las Vegas. No matter how many years may pass, it never gets old.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
