Vegas is HOT…what??

27 Aug

Well, I’m back from my Vegas and Japan trip! And It’s been much too long since I’ve last updated my little blog. I guess you could say I was busy, or I loafted…or whatever the case is, I slacked. Not much else to say :S I guess you could say today’s post is going to be a little summary of week in VEGAS!!

 

So, the first place we actually ventured to was Buffalo, which we stayed for a night. Then the next morning we flew to Vegas for our one week stay!

 

^The sandwich factory. Okay, actually I’m not even sure if it was called that, but it’s basically like… there’s a paper bag and you…basically CHECK OFF what you want in your sub/sandwich…. to speed up the process of creating “diy-type” sandwiches! Pretty smart huh! But still airplane food is damn expensive….

 

 

^I love having the window seat because I love clouds

When we arrived our first thought was “WHAT? WHY IS IT SO HOT??” Let me tell you, I thought I was in an OVEN!! Who knew vegas was so hot?!?!?! (Later I told boyfriend, he said “what did you expect? you’re in a freakin’ dessert…”) It  was crazy I’m tellin’ ya!

 

^Me posing with a statue iguana at the airport in Vegas! Very cute if you ask me ;P

 

^Guess what we see right at the airport…. =.= for the record and my female readers. NEVER I repeat NEVER trust a man who gambles… or marry him for that matter! If they’re addicted it’s like a recipe for disaster and either way it’s terrible for trying to finance a family. Boyfriend told me to try a dollar or a penny in the slots, but I’m still underage T_T

 

 

 

^The car we used during this week. I’m not exactly sure which car it is, so I’ll leave it to you car experts to figure it out!! It was quite spacious and I liked this car a lot ^^ Maybe boyfriend will consider getting this car HAHA ! Joking, I think it’s quite expensive to buy T_T

 

^…of course America would. Bacon in everything, if you ask me I think that is DISGUSTING. Who in the right mind would eat SUCH A MONSTROSITY????

 

^Look who we came across! The Mario brothers in Vegas! who would have guessed???

 

Some pics from the Vdara suites! Very beautiful and I was super impressed! They also had very good wifi so I could skype my baby muffin with clear quality! #highqualityhotelperks

 

^The kitchen, where we ate. Erm… a nice kitchen? you can’t see in this picture but to the right of the fridge, there is actually a WASHING and drying machine! In a room! How many places have that I ask you? Not many! Horray for vegas having nice places to stay!!

 

^Our “living room” where some of us slept on the pullout couch bed hehehe 🙂

 

^Bedroom! That bed is actually VERY comfy! Squishy and nice… but to be honest I myself prefer sleeping on hard floors (like I mean futon-type things) hehehehe….

 

^The beautiful bathroom! Every night I took a bath in the bathtub, while texting/kiking people! Very relaxing and I can understand why people in Japan do this often ^^

 

^Hitting the swimming pool!

 

^Let me tell you… people in Vegas are crazy! Getting tanned and shit while swimming… THIS IS HOW MY SISTER AND I DO! Hot tub therapy without the crazy sunburns!!

 

^Beautiful chocolate statue of a woman inside the neighboring hotel…. err I don’t quite remember the name of it :S Imagine devouring that all! #fatlife

 

^The beautiful chocolate fountain!! Who that random lady is, I’ll never know. All I know is, she decided to sneak into my shot… #RUDE

 

^A beautiful garden within one of the hotels! Almost a utopia-type feeling! What, with the merry-go-round and the sphere and giant bees in the air? (fake, of course)

 

^Visited the red rock canyon! Quite the drive… It was nice, I mean… rocks and all. Majestic… (not sure of sarcastic or not myself… #youngpeopleproblems)

 

^Me pretending to gamble. I don’t even know how okay -.-

 

^I won a domo from the UFO catcher game!! On my first try too!! Cute pink domo yess!! Very happy with myself that day ^^ kekeke

 

^Welcome to the famous Las Vegas!! 🙂

 

^Snapped a quick pic of the pink Cadillac + fake Elvis at the sign’s parking lot to show my boyfriend because he likes Cadillacs I think! Or so I thought, when I showed him all I got was a “lol”… T_T

 

^The light show in… I’m not sure where. I think you guys hate me because I just don’t pay enough attention to what my Dad tells me when we go places… BUT it was a beautiful light show along with the song that goes “byee byee miss american pie” I forgot what the song’s called too, sorry I’m not old enough 😦

 

We then ventured to Phoenix, and my Dad’s friend Alfred (THE cutest middle aged man in the WORLD) took us around to see the Grand Canyons and whatnot! While in Phoenix, we stayed at the Walking Stick… or maybe the Talking stick resort. I’m not sure which one it was, but it had acceptable wifi access, so it was good! And they had nice smelling soaps and shampoos #plus

 

^We visited Hoover Dam!! Apparently it is one of the largest Dams ever and was like… instructed or something to be build by Herbert Hoover! o: #anniethemusicalreference

 

^One of Alfred’s many cats! I loved visiting his house because there are so many cats!! I love cats!!

 

^Grand Canyons!! Not going to lie though, I was SO SCARED… I mean it was definitely majestic and beautiful, but I just COULD NOT take much of it, I was too scared!!

 

 

^Beautiful garden #2!! Can you believe how pretty it is, and how it’s maintained in the 40+ degrees dry climate?!?!

 

After Phoenix, we returned to Vegas to spend our last night. My father booked a night at the Palazzo! It was so grand I can not even describe how good it felt to stay there… even though I ended up being the one to sleep on the floor….I took some pictures but my pictures did the hotel NO justice whatsoever as you can see from the below photo:

 

For a better idea on how  it was, check out the actual site: HERE

 

I believe if you go on other “Auction” type sites, you can get these rooms for about 100 or a bit more! That’s what my Daddy did 🙂

Then we were off to Japan!

 

 

^Matching outfits with my two sisters! We were identical going on the flight (except for our shoes…) hehehe.

 

 

^Last kik message exchange between boyfriend and I before I left for LA connecting flight to Narita (Tokyo Airport).

 

Anddd that was it for Vegas!! 😀 hehehe Quite an adventure we had!

Kat’s Prom 2012

29 Jun

Wow so me blogging has become way overdue! Things have been really hectic with me being a senior and all with graduation and final assignments/tests and whatnot 😡

Today I wanna just blog about my Prom experience, since Prom (to me, at least) was a pretty big thing. For my boyfriend it wasn’t really a big deal apparently -.- but to me it was pretty important! (I mean, it’s prom! Once in a lifetime prom!)

Okay wow. hmm. Where does this story even start? I was pretty stoked about Prom ever since my grade 11 year when my grade 12 friends went, and they took pictures and whatnot. I mean, what’s not to be excited about? Formal wear, dancing, pictures, princess-feeling… Of course, back in grade 11 I scoffed at the idea of having a date. I thought multiple times, “No… what if we break up and the prom pictures goes to waste?” and didn’t even speculate that I would be going to prom with a date; of course I was wrong. *Cue Mr. Leo*

So, after awhile of Mr. Leo and I dating, I found out he did not particularly have much interest in attending prom. I didn’t want to push him, but I wanted him to go with me. (I mean, we need prom pictures to show our children….) LOL After some small drama (which isn’t really worth mentioning), we decided to attend prom together.

*ehem*

Promposal (n) – the act of asking somebody to prom in an elaborate manner. A combination of the words prom and proposal.

I feel like, many girls dreams are to get the perfect promposal… am I wrong? ahaha. I honestly though, did not think my boyfriend was going to prompose… like, I felt almost as if it was just a given that we would go to prom together… so I didn’t quite expect it (although I can not deny I wanted it…)

Sooo it came as quite the surprise when my boo boo muffin decided to prompose to yours truly. He called me randomly one night as I was helping his cousin with her homework, telling me to look outside. What did I see?… let me show you, rather than try to explain what him and his friends did…

It was so pretty! I was so happy about this! It was so sweet, and he also gave me a bunch of flowers… which him and his friends apparently obtained in an *cough* interesting manner XD hmm… too bad I didn’t take a nice picture of them… they’re still on my desk but they’re dry flowered.

Any-who, so time passed and finally, prom tickets were being sold. 85$ for “early bird” tickets, and after that the tickets were 90$. (I know, I thought they were mad expensive too!…) Mr. Leo and I contemplated just using the prom money to have our own formal night, but in the end we decided (well, I…) decided to stick with going to Prom… I mean we could always go to formal nights any other time, but Prom? Prom is only once! And… I need those prom pics ahaha. So we decided to attend prom. We rented a limo with like, 18 others.

Our prom was held at Arcadian Court, in downtown Toronto. Er… the theme? Midnight something? I don’t quite remember #guilty

Enough with the talk. PICTURES!

^Me and my very handsome boyfriend, Mr. Muffin.

^Take 2

^Inside, the tables we sat at from a floor higher.

^A group shot we took for prom pics!

^ Boutonniere and Corsage 🙂 Mr. Muffin got them so pretty! They are not dry flowers sitting on his desk at his house… unless he threw them out :S He better not have!

^A dolly-like picture of me ! Taken courtesy of Mr. Leo.

^A very characteristic photo of my Lion baby.

^Look at all those people! And guys, this is not even half of the attendees…

^What a romantic candle right? 😛

^Our table for the night. We had a hard time determining which pieces of cutlery belonged to who… I need to brush up on my table manner knowledge.

Now let us move onto the meal of the night shall we?

^The meal listing for that night

^The bread with butter. Everyone thought the bread was too chewy/hard, but I kind of liked it, if it weren’t for my annoyingly pained jaw…

^Meal #1, the salad piece. I personally liked it, especially the crispy things. Quite a delightful salad, and I liked devouring it like the hungry monster I was.

^Dish #2! Chicken thing… okay. The chicken bit was delicious, the meat was tender and nice, but I didn’t really like the items beneath it. Mashed potato.. gravy and whatnot? It was a bit too Swiss chalet for my liking. The herbs on the chicken  were phenomenal though!

^Me with the food! #bloggerthings

^The dessert piece, which I was extremely disappointed about. I mean it was just a cupcake! Something I could probably find in my super market!!….

^Nonetheless, I decided to promptly camwhore with the top cherry piece of the sorry excuse for a prom dessert.

^The delightful drink we were able to obtain at the drink bar 🙂

^KATCEPTION!!

^Cheers!

^Just a bit of blog PDA no biggie right? ;P

^When the dance music came on and people started hitting the dance floor, we decided to sit for a bit and camwhore in the lighting. Made us blurry! Probably because of the dark 😡

^Me, taking a reflection picture from the top of the limo 😡 I was so tired!!

^The only close-up you’re going to get of  my eyes 😛

Last picture for this post! It’s actually a picture my friend took for me of my Muffin and I slow-dancing. The song was “I don’t wanna miss a thing” by Aerosmith! I love this song!! Anywho, this next picture is one of my favourite!

Well, the original was just the picture, but I edited it a bit 😛 Just some filters and lighting adjustments, that’s about it ^^

After prom is a whole different story for another time 😉 hehe. You can probably guess what went down though.
