After a tiring albeit time well-spent in the Bay area catching up with old friends and family, we were ready for yet another fun-filled weekend in VEGAS.
A friend of a friend was celebrating his bachelor night there (as expected) so that was reason enough for us to take an hour flight down from SF to Sin City.
The sun was blazing hot but thank God it wasn’t humid so we weren’t sweatin’ our asses off. Also, people don’t really give you disapproving stares if you’re wearing very little clothes because it’s VEGAS!
What happens after this might be a little inappropriate and unnecessary to share on my blog but the best way to put it is… “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.“
Unlike here in Asia (like in Bangkok, Singapore and KL), bottle service and table reservation are only for the high rollers. A table by the dancefloor can easily set you back at least 5 grand (US dollars). A bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label is about USD500 while at most clubs in Asia, it’s about USD100.
We literally partied until the sun came up. After XS, we went to Drai’s, an after-hours club. If you like hiphop, this is the place to be… But you better know someone who can hook you up otherwise you’re likely to be waiting in line for an hour.
By the time we got home, it was already 8am… Slept for a few hours and dragged ourselves out for lunch a little bit of shopping.
We probably would’ve partied again on Saturday night after watching the show but not when we have an 8am flight the next morning. So instead, we walked along the strip, and went back straight to our hotel to rest.
Another long journey back to SF, Tokyo, Bangkok and then home in KL…
So I just turned a year older on August 2nd (holla if you’re a Leo too!) and spent my actual birthday at nice, intimate dinner with a few good friends in KL.
So Charles and I actually made it to the wrong hotel. We were supposed to go to The Marriott WAIKIKI Edition but went to The Marriott on Waikiki Beach instead. They were totally on opposite sides of the map but on the flip side, at least I got to try the delicious pineapple water.
I gotta warn ya, I know this is a health & fitness blog but I’ve got tons of food pics in this post so if you think you’re going to start binging, please click away. If you have strong willpower, continue to scroll down.
We managed to get some shut eye during our 7-hour flight from Honolulu to San Francisco and we arrived in SFO at around 9am. Dropped our stuff off at Charles’ mom’s house in San Mateo and quickly chowed down some Mexican food at Poncho Villa Taqueria before heading to the city to see a GIANTS vs PHILLIES game.
