Last Vegas post! For now! 
Our last Vegas thing was to go to this dessert restaurant called Sweets Raku that wasn’t too far from China Mama. It’s in another tiny strip mall with a very small parking lot (bleah). We ended up parking across the street in another lot. Sweets Raku is a sister restaurant to Raku, a sushi restaurant in the same area. I thought it was next door, but it was in another part of the strip mall. Sweets …

I got two more Vegas posts left in me! Actually, three, but Jake is supposed to write the other one since it’s basically his whole experience and not really mine. But that’s for the future (are you curious yet?). For now… let’s peek at more Chinese food!
I always want to eat things I can’t get at home and excellent Chinese food is something that is seriously lacking in San Diego. I didn’t even realize until recently that Las Vegas even …

Back in 2012, my friends and I went to a little place inside of a hair salon (yes, you read that right) called Great Bao. They were kicked out of the salon shortly after our visit and I’ve kept tabs on them over the years. When we decided to go to Vegas again, I tried to see if they got a new location and I was very happy to see them up and running in a proper restaurant under a …

We played around with some ideas for breakfast the next day in Vegas. Should we do a buffet? Should we go on the cheap? In the end I decided to try another off-strip restaurant called Jamms Restaurant. 

Jamms Restaurant is way, way off the Strip in a strip mall. No oversized casinos and flashy lights here, folks. When you get away from the Strip, Las Vegas starts to look like a “normal” city!
The item that really caught my eye while browsing …

Ahhh, Las Vegas. It’s pretty much a rite of passage for all young adults in Southern California to make a pilgrimage to this unholy land of neon lights, cheap alcoholic drinks, gambling, and staying up all night until you pass out and wake up in a hotel room with at least five other people. You do this at least once a year (maybe more) until you get a little older and the allure of Vegas starts to get a little …

Before I forget and get TOO lazy, let me wrap up my desert trip from May! (PS – Can you believe it’s JULY now?!)

On the last day of our trip (which was on Memorial Day itself), we headed up to Pioneertown which is not too far away from Yucca Valley. There’s a road that leads up to Pioneertown. The town is located just up over the hills in the distance of Yucca Valley. It takes about 10 minutes to drive …

On the last day of our desert trip, I wanted to get up early to see the sunrise. Well… more like I accidentally got up early and figured, “Might as well go watch the sunrise since I’m awake.” The light starting filtering into the bedroom quite early and woke me up! 

Someone else didn’t quite wake up as early as I did but I figured she was the easiest one to wake up.

“Can’t I have five more minutes?”

I went right outside …
