Last year for Christmas, I was lucky enough to spend it with my family in Brunei AND my Canadian family (in laws) who were there for our wedding. We had 2 dinners (one was pre wedding dinner at my home w my extended familia), multiple santas, snow made with soap bubbles, a visit to a few Mosques and an awesome pool party at Uncle P’s.
This year is another great Christmas! Met up w the family & bestie in VEGAS!!! After 4 days of indulging in amazing food & drinks, I conclude that this another great Christmas and awesome way to end the year.
On Christmas Eve, we started off with Brunch at Bouchon w Bestie & fiance.
After Brunch, we met up with the family for some retail therapy at the Outlets!! Followed by dinner at Fleur by Hubert Keller in Mandalay.
Bestie’s first ever chocolate souffle and Fleur did not disappoint!
After dinner, we caught the Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson Immortal Tour.
The show lasted for a good 1.5 hour or so~ As we left the show w mixed feelings, we decided to head over to Burger Bar for a “snack”. I have been raving about the Nutella Milkshake at Burger Bar, so Meep kept harping on how he wanted one. To satisfy his needs and my own hunger, we headed over to Burger Bar for some milkshakes AND a Salmon Burger.
The night ended with a lot of gambling, a short visit to the Foundation Room at the Mandalay Bay where we saw Vegas from high above.
By then it was officially Christmas Day!!!! Oldest SIL & I checked out Marquee for a couple hours while Meep hit the tables before we called it a night at about 3.30 am.
Christmas Day!!! We started off Christmas day a little later; everyone decided to sleep in and do their own thing before meeting up. Meep & I had brunch at Cafe Vettro in Aria then met up w the family in Plant Hollywood~ I won myself a little Christmas gift on the Top Dollar Slots!!!
We then head over to Bellagio to check out their Conservatory (I love that their elaborate efforts at changing it up to fit every season/holiday).
The newest (ish) addition to the family – Youngest SIL’s favourite S makes us all look ultra tiny and Asian!! ^_^
Finally it was the long awaited Christmas dinner at Mon Ami Gabi w EVERYONE!!!
Us with Besties & Fiance
Christmas Day could not end in a better note~ Found a place that sold $1.99 Foot Long hot dog and an additional 89 cents to top it off with chili!!!
That’s it! Christmas 2011 came and went a little to fast… 2011 has been a spectacular year, I could not ask for more BUT hopefully 2012 would be just as awesome if not better~
