What Happens in Vegas

Posted on Thursday, December 29, 2011 | 14 Comments

Like I was saying two posts ago, while in vacation in Las Vegas, the air was dry and the water was hard. The first shower I took when back home in Vancouver felt glorious!

After unpacking my luggage and getting through the hectic holiday known as Christmas, I've finally found time to sort through the multitude of photos I took!

At some 5:30 am, we left Vancouver and drove down to Bellingham to fly to Vegas. On the way to the airport, we stopped by Jack in the Box for breakfast and I gotta say, it was rather disgusting. All the menu items were ridiculously greasy--even the breakfast! I felt gross after we finished there.

A few hours later when we finally touched down in Vegas and entered the airport, lo and behold the first thing we laid our eyes on: slot machines... Aish, only in Vegas I suppose LOL.


After checking into Planet Hollywood and setting down our luggage (I'm so glad my luggage wasn't lost like the time I went to Hawaii earlier this year!), we went exploring in the mall connected to the hotel and ate lunch. The malls are pretty cool in Vegas--the ceilings are painted like the sky! At one point during lunch I swear there was a bit of lighting and thunder as well! Totally reminded me of the ceiling in Hogwarts ;D


After food, we ventured outside and walked around a bit more~

Tori and I, with David and Lyle who managed to sneak into the shot and ruin it >: 

We made it to Jean Philippe Patisserie at the Bellagio Hotel, were we came across a chocolate fountain! o_________o Apparently this holds the title of the world's largest chocolate fountain in the Guinness World Records, measuring 8m tall and circulating 2 tons of chocolate!

The sweets sold there were also amazing! A bit on the pricey side but boy where they delicious!


This was outside Planet Hollywood: Jackie Chan's hand prints! I now know how big my hands are relative to Jackie Chan's. There's a cool thought 8-D


During our trip, we had to do the tourist-y thing and visit the M&M and Coke stores. Gotta say though, the M&M store brings back some unpleasant memories wherein I became separated from my friends and got lost like a kid in a department store! :( It was a long while before I was rescued ><"

 

There was a little fast food thing inside the Coke store where you could order a whole bunch of different Coke products. We ordered an Around the World, which consists of little samplers of Coke products around the world! Most of the drinks were rather disgusting though! 

 

Went clubbing with my friend Tori--our guy friends were to lame to come with--and I finally got to wear the dress I bought from wholesale7! I totally have to find more occasions to wear this dress to ;D


Had a super interesting dish at a Japanese restaurant called Kabuki: green tea soba with clams. Total yum! We also happened to be there during happy hour so there were mugs of Sapporo beer for $2! Score!


We went to a restaurant called Beijing Noodle No. 9 (which totally reminded me of #9 restaurant in Richmond) where there were hand-pulled noodles! :9 I've never tried that before~! The interior was also super cute. A very modern theme with goldfish... lots and lots of goldfish! :3

 

A picture of buildings on the Las Vegas Strip at dusk. Looks like a dreamed up toyland--I thought it was pretty cool!


We also went to see Cirque du Soleil's "Ka" as well which was suuuper awesome. It was my first time seeing a Cirque du Soleil show! No pictures of the show unfortunately, since they didn't allow any photography :(

Note for those planning a trip to Vegas:

  1. If you're gambling in the casinos, drinks are free! You just have to tip a dollar to the ladies that bring you your drink. I only learned this on our last day there from Ana, our dealer at the Texas Hold'em table--she was nice :)
  2. Just a warning for everyone: almost the entire population of people in Las Vegas smokes. I felt like I was gonna die from all the second hand smoke @______@
Well that's it from me. Can't wait to do some more traveling in the future! >w<

Amicably yours, 
♥ Emi

  9. Oh my, that's some trip! Freaky coincidence too, because those are the three major trips/vacations I've been on! I'm not too sure what kind of things you'd be interested in, but I listed what I found to be the top three items of interest :)

    1) Watch a show. It can get pretty pricey, but it's worth the money, imo. If not for the show itself, then for the experience and being able to say you've seen one. I hear "O" by Cirque du Soleil is incredible and it was highly recommended, though I can't ascertain that fact.

    2) Go clubbing; again, if only to say you've been clubbing in Vegas where it's all about the parties. I got two separate recommendations (one from my sister and one from a guy working in a retail store in Vegas) for Tryst nightclub at Wynn hotel.

    3) Shop til you drop! The shopping at the outlets is amazing! I bought quite a bit in Vegas, so you may want to pack light ;)
