An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

Las Vegas

If you’re planning to visit Las Vegas or are planning a relocation, this page might be of interest to you. Other than the information in tourist brochures and prepackaged tours, what else is there to do if you don’t want to watch a big musical, party and puke, or throw down any money for expensive designer goods on The Strip?

Everyone knows the WELCOME TO FABULOUS LAS VEGAS sign even if they’ve never been here. It’s like I HEART NY logo, all sorts of touristy memorabilia are stamped with it. I didn’t really know or like the idea of Las Vegas before I moved here but since permanently moving here in the 3rd quarter of 2013, my eyes have opened and views have changed.

My husband T and I live in Southwest Las Vegas, in an up and coming master planned community called Mountain’s Edge. While our house is on the edge of the desert, we’re only a 20-minute drive to the nearest premium outlet mall and 30-minutes from The Strip. Nevada is large and empty. I’m kinda glad we live in Las Vegas, which is the state’s largest metropolitan area, but also get to be surrounded by nature. It doesn’t hurt that we’re only 4 1/2 hours’ drive away from Los Angeles, California and drive up there often.

Here are the posts I’ve written about Las Vegas – summaries of visitation from friends and family (and where we go), restaurants and places of interests etc.
