Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...

Westgate Is Our Vacation Stay

FROM THE AIRPORT, we took a shuttle bus to our car rental place nearby.  Budget is the name of the car company we rented the car from.  Yes, really budget rate, I think it is around $200 for 5 days and we planned to utilize the transport while in Las Vegas.  LOL...  Next, we checked in to our apartment where we would be staying for 5 nights.  It is called Westgate and it is a two room apartment.  We requested for ground floor for easy accessibility, anyway, it has only two floors.  hehehehe... Check in time was at 4pm and we had three hours to go before checking in.  We went to take lunch at a Japanese place in Chinatown, waited half an hour before we were seated and by then, we were super hungry except for the baby, of course.... Once we reached the apartment, I did not feel like going out.... "why don't you youngsters go out and get all the food stuff we need and I stay with the baby?"  Sounds good, eh....  And after that, it was a night of relaxation for me.....  I sle

Our First Flight For 2022

FLYING ON NEW YEAR 2022.... We went to Las Vegas on the 1st January 2022.  The flight was only an hour plus away, it was a short one, just what I like.  Since it was a short flight, I did not watch any downloaded movies, just listened to some songs and spent the time taking pictures of the scenery from the window seat.  Baby was good too, he spent his time playing with his mom's iPad... and another half hour napping before our plane landed in Las Vegas....  These are some of the shots I managed to capture while passing through the desserts.....  Amazing scenery of the mountains covered in snow.... Baby and I before boarding.... And this marked our first New Year flight 2022...

So, if there’s only one change that you wish to implement in 2022, upgrading this setting is the answer.  It may seem like a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Simply learn to focus on the five factors below and a positive transformation will be assured. Let’s get started. #1.

The day my Nintendo DS stopped working

I had a ton of free time on a particular rainy Saturday afternoon. It was a perfect day to be lazy in the chilly weather. I decided to first warm myself up with some food. I cooked some hot soup and braised some pan-fried tofu, having them over freshly cooked white rice. It was just perfect for the day as I warmed up over lunch, making it more comfortable to stay in and laze around. I took out my Nintendo DS from my drawer and headed for the couch. I made myself comfortable and then started the only game I have played on the DS over the past year, Cooking Mama. Cooking Mama is this cooking simulator game where a character instructs you how to prepare ingredients and cook dishes. It is a very casual game that I can just start and not worry about stopping as most dishes can be completed in a short time. I still have quite a number of dishes I have not started cooking in the game and so I got going in my quest to complete the game. An hour into breaking eggs into a pan, stirring ingre
