Road to Las Vegas

Today is Martin Luther King's Day. No work for me. I wish I had used these three days more wisely, but with heavy snow on Saturday and very cold Sunday and today, basically I was just curling at home, my warm nest.

Tomorrow, loads of work will be waiting for me. *wipe cold sweat*

On the day before Christmas eve, we headed to Las Vegas.



Photobucket
The street where Mr. Food Guide lives, was empty.



Photobucket
We stopped by at a Chinese Kopitiam for getting our breakfast.



Photobucket
Love the Small Cage Buns. Awesome!! Was going to eat again after came back, but never got the chance. *sigh*



Photobucket
On the way to Las Vegas, we stopped in the middle of the desert for this huge outlet centre.



Photobucket
The crowd was insane, especially in this coach outlet. Mostly Asians. I guess Americans just tend to have their Las Vegas time more during summer.

Not sure whether they are going to do crazy shopping in such way or not in the outlet center. We didn't get much things, except a couple of T-shirts and perfumes from Ralph Lauren. Also, we got 2 Barney bath toy for my nephew and niece. They are HUGE Barney's fans. That already took us almost 2 hrs.



Photobucket
On the road again.



Photobucket
The blues man working temporarily as our Mr. Driver and Mr. Food Guide. Extra income during the holidays.



Photobucket
Love the road in Nevada. So straight, miles and miles.



Photobucket
Unique road name, that will definitely be the last in the road list in U.S.

Also described me aptly... I Zzzzzz most half of the time. It always happening to me when I am not behind the wheel.



Photobucket
The road side was pretty interesting. Desert Nevada style with a huge salt mine further behind, nearer to the mountain side. It was so white. I was surprised when I was told those were salt.



Photobucket
We past through a place called Death Valley, the hottest place in U.S. The temperature goes up to 130 degree F in summer.

We had quite a hard time looking for lunch as it was very packed with people in most of the restaurants. We did not want to waste time for waiting.



Photobucket
Without much choice, my first time eating at Denny's.



Photobucket
Mom was looking tired. Long road trip was not an easy thing for her as she was not used to it. But she handled it well.

Three people...



Photobucket
... two plates of high-carb food.



Photobucket
Pretty bad I would say.



Photobucket
Certain part of the Nevada desert was full of this kind of tree - Joshua tree. Only a small part of Nevada's desert showed sign of small cactus.



Photobucket
We will never see such a long straight road in Malaysia.

The road trip was pretty smooth until this point.



Photobucket
When we were getting near to the destination, long line began to form. It continued for about an hour.



Photobucket
At least we relieved a bit when we saw another outlet which named "Fashion Outlet of Las Vegas", meaning we were pretty near to the Sin City.



Photobucket
Nevada welcome center was closed.



Photobucket
New York New York was welcoming us.



Photobucket
Oolala~~~ nothing more appertizing to see huge sexy six pacs on the road side. Yes, I have a fetish for hunks. LOL



Photobucket
Luxor came to our eyes. A beautiful pyramid from outside.



Photobucket
If anything that I felt regret for not doing it in Las Vegas, definitely was to miss a show by these imported hotties from Australia. I love Australian guys accent... such a turn on.

Another six pacs. *fan fan fan*



Photobucket
Oh~~~ tall buildings...



Photobucket
...with a roller coaster rail built on top of the building.



Photobucket
The Green Lady.

We have arrived to out destination finally.



Photobucket
But before reaching the hotel, it was such a pain with the traffic. Gah!



Photobucket
Finally, we reached New York New York. This was the hotel we stayed for two nights in Las Vegas.



Photobucket
Hundreds of slot machines laid out nicely just beside the lobby.

How not to spend your money??



Photobucket
Our neighbour, Excalibur - looking fabulous like a castle at night.



Photobucket
The night was still young... time for us to explore the area.

To be cont...

lannae : Hehe... lannae, I lost 10 bucks. But having quite bit of fun with the slot machines. The food, unfortunately, was nothing to brat about. Too many people, we were too lazy to line long hr for tourist oriented food, so we just sticked to hunger-solving food. ;)

mamabok : Haha, I think that was actually the only ok thing of that meal.

wilson : Same same to you wilson. Are you ready for a redneck style party? ;)
