Classic modern Vegas view

Vegas is one of our favorite vacation spot, we go to Vegas once a year. I love taking lots of picture. Each time we pick a different new hotel to have our little afternoon walk after our big buffet lunch. I would just take picture like crazy. As you know, Vegas changed all the time, any view you see couple years ago could be gone next time you go. Here's a classic modern view of Vegas.

Vegas hotel used the best of the best contractor, designer and they have almost unlimited budget to buy luxury beautiful decor. It look like the world's most expensive house or palace, they take ideas from everywhere that's awesome, luxury, elegant and beautiful. It gives you that "whoa" factor, it makes your jaw drop and wants to take lots of picture. 

Everything is just screams expensive, expensive, expensive! Whoa, I wish I had this kind of room or this kind of house. Even the restroom is awe-----some!!!!!!!

Every detail is amazing, expensive, colorful, blow your mind "whoa".  I just love going to Vegas just walk into different hotels, browsing the stores that you never seen, look at the wallpaper that wows you, go to the restroom that you never thought could look so elegant. 

Each hotel has different theme, some is European theme, some is modern classic theme. Even thought each one is so awesome, they can always be surpass by other hotels, so they want to always come up with a better idea than the other hotels. Color is important, it's not just red, green, yellow, there are many different type red, green and yellow and other color. It's important to mix the right color with the right lighting. It can't be too over, or else it hurts the customer's eyes and they want to leave, it can't be too boring, or else they're moving to the next hotel. The lighting makes you feel comfortable but want to spend money, the decor makes you feel homey but makes you feel you're in an exotic place. 


awesome city - London, England

One of my 2006 Europe trip includes one of the fabulous and expensive city in the world - London, England. It has rich history, royal family and afternoon tea. English is the language but it's totally different from America. 

Buildings and streets has lots of color and character, and there's a lot of  ancient castles. It is a city full of both modern tech and ancient history. 

Also, there's one of the most famous family in the world - the royal family. Think about all the parties, jewelry, and history. 

I happen to be able to go inside one of the castle by the London bridge, here's a funny story. See the below picture of the narrow stone stairway? I climb up to the castle but when I'm ready to go down from the same stairway, the guard told me not to go down the same way. They said it's only for going up and going down because it's too narrow. So I have to go to the other end of the room to find another stairway to go down. What a trip that is, but however, I do found more stuff to photography, so all the extra walking is worth it. 


my 2006 Europe trip - Austria- Vienna

this is another city I visited in Austria - Vienna, the language they speak is Germany, I think I might want to move to Austria in the future, it's a really pretty country but I need to learn the language. 

one of the royal palace the king and queen used to lived. see how big their yard is? how do they get from the end of the yard back to the palace? is this how they work out?

yeab, that's my name on my jeans, I painted my jeans.

this is the "downtown" shopping place. the buildings are in a light color so it made the street look wider and bigger not too narrow, I love it.

Mozart Cafe, by the way Mozart died very young and didn't even have a grave site after he died. his sister however, lived to be over 90 years old.


my 2006 Europe trip - Austria- Salzburg

here's another city in Austria that I travel - Salzburg. it's a beautiful city but different from Innsbruck. 

the building style has some German influence in it, lots of wood, dark wood.

rest stop restaurant by the road.

park with lots of beautiful trees and a small chapel.

here we're at the town, I guess this is their downtown. lots of shops, interesting building. 

famous Mozart the great musician was born in this yellow building. when i was there in 2006, it's actually a Mozart celebration, they have all the gifts and snack that has Mozart's picture on it. 


lots of churches in Europe, so grand so beautiful, such a powerful feeling and so calm, relax and graceful. 

one more slice of black forest cafe, remember I had one in Germany?

ah, taking a break sitting down at the outside of the cafe and enjoying some ice tea while I people watching. remember the yellow building where Mozart was born? it's behind me. 


one of my favorite European city Austria, Innsbruck

One of my favorite country in Europe is Austria, it's so pretty and has an ancient classic beauty, here's the pix.

just like Germany, many old building, it look so pretty especially at night, it give me a sense of poetry beauty. like reading a beautiful poem that you don't understand but you want to keep reading. 


yummy breakfast, buffet style, cool hotel floor.

what? check out this hotel room, awesome, more yellow/orange light, I love this room.


my 2006 Europe trip - Amsterdam

Have you seen Ocean's twelve? it's a cool movie, and part of it is shot in Amsterdam, people living on water, they have water house, water boat, and it look very pretty at night with lights dancing on water.

I love the yellow/orange lighting, and this is the lobby of the hotel I'm staying, so cool, the main color is yellow and orange too. 

visiting their shops, lots of wooden shoes, can't really buy it cuz i'ts big and heavy, why don't they make something smaller like keychain. the thing about buying stuff when you travel is always stick to something small and light like postcard, magnet or keychains. 


my 2006 Europe trip-Germany

So many cities I visited in Europe, next city I want to show pictures of is Germany. It has a lot of big churches and awesome buildings.

look at the details, whoa, how do you build this? this is incredible, amazing, and if you're there in person, it's more whoa. it's very tall and you have to walk far away to take the whole picture. 

this is a town called Heiderberg in German, old buildings, old castles, just lots of history. 

in Germany, drink lots of beer and eat pig's feet. by the way, I made this Tshirt, WD - World Discs is one of my company. 

their famous clock that has birds come out and cute sounds, I didn't get one cuz I don't have room in my suitcase, I went to a small cafe at this town Lake Titisee and get a slice of black forest cafe, also another famous dish from Germany.


My Europe trip - France - Paris at night

Paris is awesome and beautiful in the morning but it's more beautiful at night. The light shines, people dances, even the sky looks like a master painting. I'm so happy that I got to see one of the most wonderful city in the world in the morning and at night too.

so so very very cold, see how much I had to covered myself up? if you're going, be sure to bring sweater, heavy jackets, scarfs, beanies and gloves.


My Europe trip - France - Paris in the morning

In 2006, I went on a trip to Europe, even though this is call At Los Angeles but I thought it would be fun to share these pix with you. Let's start off with one of the bright glamour city in the world - Paris.

I guess I don't have to tell you where I am, this is one of the famous spot in the world but did you know when it was first built, it was consider ugly because the material. Citizens in Paris hated it at first and think it's a bad design and is not fitted for the beautiful city Pairs. As time goes by, people started to accept it and begin to love it and now it becomes one of the most famous spot in the world. It's beautiful in the morning, you can view 360 degree city view, it's more beautiful at night, it shines like a big yellow diamond. What's not pretty about this place is it's hard to go up, you have to wait with lots of people to get on this small elevator or you can choose to climb up and down hundreds of stairs. Ouch! I did however has the "opportunity" to climb down the stairs, whoa, what a workout. 


Lots of palace and lots of museum, who can remember the name? Just enjoy the pix, lots of gold color in the palace to show how rich the Kings and Queens are. Huge self portraits of oil paintings again, to show how rich they are. A lot of museum too, Paris is not only the city of fashion but also the city of art. As an artist, it is awesome to visit such a city, I want to go back many many more times. 

I regret that I didn't eat more pastry, they're famous for their pastry, so how come they're not fat? this is not fair. they're so sweet and tasty and yummy and so pretty just like fashion and art. 

Doing a little promotion here, I'm wearing the company hat "FH0" www.FH0.com, and the black sweatshirt I'm wearing is for the music label "EBBoy" www.ebboy.com, that I made it myself using iron on machine.
