The girls organised a partying trip over the weekend to Las Vegas at the end of June, and while it wasn’t the first time I’d been to Las Vegas [see here, here, here, and here], it definitely was the first time I had gone with the purpose of drinking and dancing like the locals do, instead of the touristy stuff I did at the more populated end of the strip last year.
Day 1: Light Nightclub
Our first night on a Friday was to the much-anticipated Light Nightclub. Lilli had previously contacted a nightclub promoter who was referred to her from her friend to arrange our free entry into the club; it was fascinating to me, since I had never heard of such a thing as a promoter before. Apparently, they’re the middlemen who earn their commissions by the number of girls they get into the clubs that they are affiliated with. I never heard of them back when I used to go clubbing in Singapore donkey years ago. But anyway, here was Day One:
F21 dress + Shop Notice necklace + Cotton On bangles + Dr. Martens boots
Light Nightclub is known for its Cirque Du Soleil performers gracing the dance floor. It was so cool to see them in action! They were everywhere- lining the sides of the dance floor, suspended from and flying across the ceiling… there was even a king who just sat on the throne overseeing the dance floor through the night.
Day 2: The Other end of the Las Vegas Strip
The next day was split into two groups. Most of the girls went to Encore Beach Club, the party that happened in the daytime, while Lilli, Ssen, and I opted to hide under the shade of the Fashion Show Mall opposite Trump Hotel, where we stayed at.
I spied this Starbucks cart in the middle of the atrium, and we loitered around it, wondering what it was for, until they started giving out free bottles of coffee. There were three different flavours to choose from. How awesome is that?
After that, a lady stopped me and beckoned for me to go to her shop cart. Lilli and Ssen were skeptical at first, until the lady proceeded to give me a free nail pattern with the technology that her cart offered. We all got patterned nails!
We later ventured out of the comfort of air-conditioning to get ourselves some tacos of the famed Tacos El Gordo. It was delicious.
And then we decided to pay a visit to Circus Circus, where the arcade games were in Vegas:
We passed by Gordon Ramsey’s newly-opened restaurant, Gordon Ramsay BurGR, at Planet Hollywood.
And a delectable dinner of Caribbean Jerk Chicken sandwich at Earl of Sandwich. Om nom nom.
Day 2: Surrender Nightclub
Day Two was spent at Surrender Nightclub. It turns out that Surrender was the exact same venue as Encore Beach Club, which the rest of the girls had gone to earlier. Lol. Here was my very bling space-themed outfit.
Hanging out with the girls has opened up so many sights and eateries for me in both Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. I’m really glad I was able to spend time in their company. When this has posted, I’d probably have reached Singapore. So let me just say this in advance:
I miss you California! It was an amazing experience and I’d do it again if I had to start over. ♥
 I forgot to mention that we were there in the middle of the heat wave that struck California! It was an eye (and perhaps, pore)-opening experience to be stuck in the desert at 117 °F (47 °C) temperatures.
