Couple of weeks back, I was meeting my old friend whom is currently working in Salt Lake City, Utah. We were high school friends and haven’t met each other since 4 years ago. Ever since I came to the States, we were planning for a trip to meet up, and finally we did it!!!  It was a 3D2N trip, and he handled all of the itinerary, thanks to him, all I need to do is get myself a ticket and fly there.

After we met up at the airport, we headed down to our hotel The Quad in the middle of The Strip. On the way, we stopped by Coke and tasted the famous “Over the World”, 16 different tastes of coke from different parts of the world.

We reached the hotel, took some rest and headed out for a walk in the late afternoon around the hotels/attractions on the north side of The Strp.

For the next day, we rented a car and drove around. We stopped by the South Premium Outlets, then to the Atomic Museum + Area 51 Museum. Both really interesting places, lots to learn and to learn. After the tour to the museums, we headed up to North Premium Outlets to do some shopping. We even stopped by the famous road sign, welcoming drivers to Las Vegas.

When we’re getting hungry and sky’s getting dark, we went to a Malaysian Cuisine Restaurant nearby to Chinesetown. Wonderful food and brought back nostalgic feeling as those food are so familiar to both of us, we ordered steamed chicken, fried flat noodle, roti canai (indian flat bread), and Pasembur (mixture of fried items with peanuts sauce). Satisfied, we went to Downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street. Wonderful place, really happening with it’s world largest LCD dome and great sound effect that puts everyone into a party mood!!!
