San Diego Harbor Exursion Made Me Yellow

Back to my overdue "cruise post" ... we took a two hours deluxe harbour tour on the bay of San Diego... this two hours tour covers Harbor and Shelter Islands, Point Loma, Cabrillo National Monument, North Island Naval Air Station, the Submarine Base, as well as the Coronado Bridge and more...

Two hours cruise.. I thought I would be very bored and sleepy... but no.. I was very awake surprisingly... As usual, I let my pictures tell the story..…

Dinner At Chin's Szechuan Restaurant In San Diego

After checking into our resort apartment, it was almost time for dinner.... and I was most excited and happy when I heard that we were going for Szechuan food instead of western food!  Phew... that is really good news to me ...not that I don't like to take burgers and stuff but because I am a rice lover... I must have rice at least once a day or once a week if it is not too much to ask... LOL...



One of my sister's friend is working in this Szechuan restaurant called Chin's…

Michael & I - MJ Live Tribute

The following night after the heavy downpour, it was a time for another excitement, this time it was not as "threatening" as the previous night but a time for a "thunderous" one... an event I was looking forward to since the day I arrived in Las Vegas!



The only SHOW I wanted to go and watch is none other than a tribute to Michael Jackson and he is none other than Michael Firestone!  Upon checking into the resort, we quickly booked tickets to the MJ Live in Rio…

It Sure Rains In Las Vegas...

Soon it was dark when we reached the outskirts of Las Vegas... in fact, it was going to pour and it did!! With the lightning and all, I was quite nervous about the heavy rain and wind... furthermore, the radio kept announcing that those driving to Las Vegas got to look out for flash floods and take a U-turn out from the town....

I think "we" brought the rain to Las Vegas...

according to my BIL, it seldom rains in Las Vegas..

as in the song "It never rains in…

Mai Tai Cocktail Made Me High

The weather in Las Vegas is very hot, I have never experienced such heat but then it is dry, I didn't sweat at all but I could feel my skin like being "burn".. so sunblock lotion is an very important item.. never leave home without it... I kept applying the cream on my arms and try to cover my face as much as I could... not surprising if more pigmentation appearing on my face now that I am home...



No wonder my BIL didn't want to join us during that afternoon to the strip...…

** Seeing his grandma in the buff apparently doesn't phase my son in the least.

** Hot flashes and sea sickness don't mix well with a pirate ship cruise.

My Nice Experience In US Embassy

It was still dark when I was there joining in the queue at around 7am in front of the US Embassy entrance. My appointment was fixed for 7.40am, I guess the earliest slot for the day. Initially the queue was quite long but when the guard announced that those with appointment at 7.40am were only to queue up, the line became so much shorter.



After handing over my ID to the counter, I was given a security pass and I have to join another line again,…
