A Trip to Las Vegas (Part 4)

So a while back I went to Las Vegas or as some people call it "Sin City". People usually think of Las Vegas as a place to gamble, get married, watch show girls strip, and have fun, but that isn't the only thing about Las Vegas. There are lot's of shows in Las Vegas. All the buildings are like pieces of artwork that famous artists and architects created. It's amazing how people can create such a big and crowded city in the middle of the desert. It's called "Sin City" because of the gambling and the strip clubs there. Guess what? They were passing out naked show girl pictures on the streets. At first I was like, what could that be? I took one and I was like "OH GOD! GET THAT AWAY FROM ME!" LOL Should have listened in my friends warning. XD At least they covered the private parts with hearts and stuff. I had a lot of fun watching the shows... Well the family appropriate shows. LOL Didn't waste too much money either on this trip. HAHA

Some of the pictures maybe a little bit out of order, because I took some pictures with my DSLR and some with my Nokia N97. The naming system is a bit different so Microsoft Windows sorts them out different for me.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos (well most of the photos) you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing here.

Today, I'll be posting more pictures from my DSLR. :D Most of them is during the night. LOL So you can see some Vegas night life today.

The view of Vegas from the room I stayed at in the hotel. :)

Las Vegas

V Theater

Inside the mall. :D Stripper Bar. XD

Vegas has so many visitors...

GREAT DEALS ON CAMERA ACCESSORIES!!!

So many lights during the night. :) It's a pretty view.

Even though it's late at night, still a lot of cars on the streets...

More pictures inside the mall.

The V Show performers.

Monte Carlo, the hotel I stayed at.

More night time pictures. 

And that concludes my pictures in Las Vegas. Yeah... I know... Well I have to be honest here. I don't have any pictures prepared for the next post yet. XD But it will probably be on flowers around the SF Bay Area. :\ I haven't really went anywhere... So yeah...

Pokemon Black and White Mall Tour

Yesterday, I went to the Pokémon Black and White Mall Tour at Westfield Oakridge Mall in San Jose, CA. I think the mall tour was amazing. Especially the free stuff. XD I love free stuff... The mall was crowded with Pokémon fans from all over SF Bay Area I guess. I'm pretty sure they are from the bay. This isn't the end of the article. :) I stuck little bits of the article under the pictures so you won't get bored while reading this. HAHA

Before I get started, I would just like to remind you that I made a Facebook Fan page for this photography blog. You can "Like Us" here. I have also made Google+ and Twitter pages. If you follow or "Like" me on these, you can be updated whenever I post something new! :) Please invite your friends too! I'm trying to get more viewers on here. Anyways, as always, enjoy my photos!

Giant models of Reshiram and Zekrom. :D

According to the flyer I got, there was a station for playing a demo of Pokémon Black and White and you get a free Pokémon pin just for playing the demo. Oh yeah, that leads me to the other thing. I should have read the flyer when I was there. XD I missed a lot of things. Like for the demo, I was like, eh... Who cares. LOL If I knew they were giving out free stuff, I would have went... So I didn't get a pin... At GameStop, they gave out Celebi for your Pokémon game. At the "Pokémon Center", you got a chance to buy Pokémon stuff. I thought they were a bit overpriced and there was nothing I want... Other than that Pikachu shirt, but they didn't have a size I can wear. :\ And it was $20 per shirt. WHAT A RIP OFF... But expected. HAHA

My picture with the Reshiram and Zekrom models. LOL

Miss the event? Here are some of the things they were selling online!


People lining up for the stamps... I'll tell you more about that below. I guess some of them were lining up for the Celebi. HAHA

There was a lot of people lining up for the free stuff...

This was the station where they showed highlights from the new Pokémon movie. I didn't watch. I was busy taking photos for you guys. LOL


There is an "Activity Zone" where you can see the highlights of the new Pokémon movie, take photos with Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott in person, and you can spin a wheel to get free stuff.  There was also free showings of the new Pokémon movie, which I also didn't see because I thought you had to pay. LOL You get an over-sized Pokémon card for watching the movie.

Ad: Nintendo fans, are you read for 3D video gaming? Get your Nintendo 3DS now! More details.


After you get all 5 stamps in your flyer, you get to spin the wheel to determine which prize you get. Prizes included Pokémon plushies featuring the Snivy, Tepig, or Oshawott, patches featuring Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott, cellphone charms featuring Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott, and styluses featuring Snivy, Tepig, or Oshawott. Everyone with the stamps had one shot at it. I'll tell you more about the stamps below.

Pokémon Lover? Check out these great deals. :) Great for Pokémon lovers! 


More pictures of the people lining up for the free stuff. The line moved faster than I thought. HAHA 


There was 5 stations spread out through out the mall (just like the one above). You were to collect all 5 stamps (1 from each station) and return to the "Activity Zone" to get a spin at the prize wheel. :) It was pretty fast because they told you all the locations of the stations on a sign... HAHA

I got a Oshawott plushy and a Tepig stylus. :) I got 2 prizes because my parents was there. :P So 2 prizes for me. XD It kinda sucks I don't have a DS to use the stylus on... Oh well, I can use it with my Nokia N97... The thing you see underneath the Oshawott plushy is the flyer.

Other plushies they were selling. HAHA :) The first one is the one I got for free. LOL


People lining up to see Tepig in person and to take a picture...

So many people... 

Ok... Something is not right in this picture... HAHA Pedo... JKJK


So they had people (Nintendo employees?) dressed up in Pokémon costumes standing there so the fans can meet the Pokémon in person and to take pictures. I guess the little kids got a lot of joy out of that or the pedophiles in the costume..... JKJK XD So many little kids... LOL

The Oshawott plushy and the Tepig stylus I got.

Over all I had a lot of fun at this event. :) It was truly amazing. I wish Nintendo would do more Pokémon events. XD I loved Pokémon since I found out about them. As you can see, I still do, even though I'm all grown up. HAHA I guess age doesn't matter. :P So did you go? Tell me in the comments below!

Some views of Vegas at night. :) The city never goes to sleep. The lights are on 24 hours a day. It's like the sun is still shining on the city. Love it... I think city life is nice... But you really shouldn't live in Vegas. You'll end up going bankrupt. ROFL

Christmas tree. It was New Years when I went...
