While Singaporeans like bee hoon, pau and other local delectables for breakfast, I had a little surprise!
An hour drive out of Las Vegas and you’d get to Mount Charleston, where you can find snow and ski during certain times of the year. I was really lucky this time, because the weather still hasn’t warmed up yet. We wanted to head to Grand Canyon initially, but because the weather was unexpectedly cold and I had no warm gear packed, we decided to do something else instead. Not that it’s any warmer here at Mount Charleston, but at least there are lodges where I can hide!
I was really excited because this was going to be the first time I see snow!!
Something happened to my memory card today, so most pictures are taken with the phone. I managed to get myself a new memory card but when it comes to products like that, we get them a lot cheaper in Singapore.
Everything else, especially food, comes in big portions so even though we might pay the same price as do in Singapore, it’s actually cheaper because we get more.
I love supermarkets, but this day, I went to the Whole Foods Market, where you get a good selection of organic/healthy options. There is such a great variety, I don’t mind becoming a full-time cook!
There are no intentions of touring LA just yet, since we’d be back towards the end of the trip. I had a nice workout at the gym this morning, followed by a really delightful buffet breakfast, which had a great fruit selection of strawberries, blueberries, grapefruit, oranges and the usual watermelon, honeydew and pineapple. Berries aren’t as expensive in this part of the world, so I was happy with the unlimited intake of antioxidants. No pictures because I didn’t bring my camera to the gym.
After that, I did a little shopping at Barneys New York at Beverley Hills and then we made our way to Vegas. Hopefully I get to go back to that street again to take some photos because that’s where Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Ave and Barneys stand side by side. I’m fascinated because my understanding of these places are pretty much limited to their online websites!
It has been a long time since I updated my blog. Here’s a glimpse of what happened while I was gone.
A lot has been going on for me, and my body clock has just been turned upside down. I do hope to share with everyone my trip and experiences soon. Meanwhile, for those of who aren’t following me on Twitter, you might want to look for me there, because updates are more frequent as long as there’s internet connection. 🙂
Take care and have a good weekend!
