Bellagio Resort & Casino
3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV
When MomJ first told me that my favorite artist, Jacky Cheung (張學友), will be performing in Vegas, I was so excited. However, I changed my mind when I saw the prices of the ticket, hotel, and flight...hahaha...yups...Buddha Girl is cheap. But later, I realized that MomJ's really the one who wanted to go, not necessarily for JC, but for the "itch" she's been having for months...hahahahaha!
Originally, we were going to meet up with TG owners (also in town to watch JC) for a quick breakfast before we head off to the outlet mall. However, plan changed due to a lack of communication...hahahaha...old ladies! Anyhow, after a poor cafe experience last night, we opted to visit the cafe at Bellagio. MomJ's friends, Mr. & Mrs. Double-F (since both of their names begin with the letter "F") joined us for brunch.
Just like the cafe at Aria, we were served with a basket of bread after we placed our orders. My orange juice was also a good start for the day...Vitamin C!!!
Mrs. Double-F's order #1 - Seasonal Fruit Bowl...not much to say about this except this was $9.50???
Mrs. Double-F's order #2 - Irish Steel Cut Oatmeal...too healthy for me.
Mr. Double-F's The Garden Omelet...no thanks...it wasn't my veggie day.
MomJ ordered the Chicken Wrap...this was good! The chicken was tender and juicy, the tortilla was light, the chipotle mayo and the avocado worked well as the "dressing"...yum! This was so good that I went for a to-go order the same night after the Cirque du Soleil show...hehehehehe!
Hehehehe...guess what...I forgot to take a pictures of my order! I guess I was too busy taking pictures of other people's food. Hahahahaha! I went for the Monday Special - Roasted Breast of Chicken. The chicken was dry, but the "potato lasagna" was quite tasty. Anyhow, I managed to snap pictures of the menu, please click on the menu for larger view.
Bellagio has a beautiful botanical garden and it's often decorated according to different occasions. Since it's CNY, the garden was filled with related decorations. Right in the center was the Fortune God (財神爺)...but honestly...this Fortune God was a bit freaky-looking...so much makeup!!!
Behind the Fortune God, there was a sailboat that symbolized "a smooth ride" (一帆風順).
On the right of the Fortune God was a bunch of bunnies to symbolize the year of the rabbit/hare...whatever you wanna call it.
On the left of the Fortune God...ok now...why would terracotta warriors be part of a joyful CNY festivity? These are funerary sculptures...meant to be buried with the dead...um...HELLO???
