Oh Yeah! It’s Friday!!!
And I think it’s the best time to tell a little story about my 24-hour-Vegas-experience :)
This is a lengthy post with lots of pictures! Here we GO!
Catch the earliest flight to Vegas from San Francisco. (Part of my Sweet Escape Route) Oh, I can hardly open my eyes…
And this is the sort of scenery you’ll see out of the window…
I was so super sleepy, but the bride-to-be sitting next to us and her Bachelorette Party gang was sooo hyper. They kept cheering and spoke in excitements. Then I thought, maybe it would be super fun to have a bachelorette party in Vegas~ Can I have a second one?
Breathtaking isn’t it?
And we we arrived, woah~ we were stepping right into a casino!
No kidding. This is the Vegas airport!
And the first thing we did, lost in Ethel M Chocolate boutique in the airport!
Besides having my initial “E” sticker on the packaging; the chocolate tastes like heaven! Next time when you are in Vegas, I would recommend you to get some before you start all the fun :) Caramel crunch is my favourite!
Hello Las Vegas!
In my bag was a scroll of world map to mark our Round-The-Globe tour :)
Then we arrived our lovely hotel: The Venetian
We have been to the one in Macau. They look equally impressive and exquisite :)
I instantly felt so elegant… Keke…
And our little suite \(“O)/
Still a little bit dreamy, I told myself this is too good to be true…
Every details is so beautiful and delicate… I feel like I am living a high-roller dream…
So after a short nap, I showered and put on my “Vegas look” :)
Super short hot pink skirt and flamboyant eyelashes~
And after our late lunch, I decided this look is definitely not for me. THE EYELASHES WERE SO HEAVY, I CAN HARDLY OPEN MY EYES AND SEE ANYTHING! Salute to those who can…
Over a cup of coffee, I quickly switched back to sweet-demure-Eryn-look :)
Let’s start rolling!
The water reminds me of beautiful Bora Bora~
Random people on the street will kindly offer us to take a picture for us. And we sort of return the favor everytime when we see couples and offer them to snap a picture for them too :)
I felt so blessed to have worn a pair of sparkling flats… Heels will certainly kill me here.
And we had a game or two until the sun set. Nightfall is when the City of Light shines.
We walked hand in hand on the hotel strip and amazed by this dynamic city full of people, energy and everything nice and expensive.
I got compliments from strangers on the street on my dress. Which made me very happy and glad that I did not come out with the pink mini skirt and heels. So, point to think about:
Suitability (short skirt and sky high heels in Vegas) and comfort (one shoulder draped long dress and flats) really depends on which one you can carry better :)
Watched the musical fountain in front of Bellagio!
You will be mesmerized as the water takes on a life all it’s own and dances in perfect synchronization to broadway favorites and opera and everything else in between. Best of all this show is FREE.
We had our buffet dinner before catching a 10:00p.m. show:
O by Cirque du Soleil at Bellagio.
Cirque du Soleil® weaves an aquatic tapestry of artistry, surrealism and theatrical romance in the timeless production, “O™.” The international cast of world-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and characters perform in, on, and above water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theatre reminiscent of a European opera house.

If you happened to be in Las Vegas, make sure you catch a show. There are hundreds of different shows going on in different hotels, you’ll definitely find one that you enjoy :)
Gaming is definitely part of the classic experience in Vegas.
I must say the Goddess of Fortune was not with me that night…
After a few rounds of pokers, we found this beautiful little lounge Le Cabaret with live entertainment and nice specialty drinks.
After one too many cocktails… We realized it’s 4:00 a.m. in the morning…
I sang and danced our way back to our lovely suite.
24 hours is too short to see the fabulous Las Vegas.
Unashamedly bright, bold and brassy, Las Vegas is designed to create a cocoon in which you’re wrapped in your own fantasy world. It’s an experience of conjuring exotic destinations, mystery and romance. In 24 hours, I reinvented myself, lose all sense of time and get swept away in the sheer, unbridled, outrageous extravagance of it all!
Till the wake up call rang in 6:00a.m., I was completely indulge in this magical colourful dreamy fantasy~
