240109 Leehom Concert in Las Vegas

I flew for an insane amount of time to HK > LA -> Las Vegas.

Thank god for inflight entertainment.
2 Woody Allen shows + Alfie = too much sex on a plane, of too many goodlooking people.

moving on.

this was my first glimpse of civilisation!

Strangely, the last time I was here was 10 years ago,
but I remembered the place very clearly...

My favourite place was the Bellagio,
watching dancing water, listening to Frank Sinatra.

This time round, I didn't have much time to go near to Bellagio.

The show was at MGM Grand,

which housed a Lion Habitat

@ the Arena :)

band room!

Photobucket
drummer Brendan Buckley stood in for the show,
he looks... a tad like leehom!

Photobucket
Traditional lion-dance before the show started -
I thought that was pretty cool!

After all, the arena housed a mini-Chinatown,
and in the spirit of Chinese New Year,
I believe it was a great celebration and time of bonding for the Chinese to be at the concert!

Photobucket
The fans! :)
People from LA, Hawaii, Venezuela??

I enjoyed hearing Leehom speak mostly in English for the concert -
and it only occurred to me later that,
it was the first time that Jamie (guitarist) and Jingles (bassist) knew what leehom was talking about throughout the show!

Photobucket
Our post-party lasted all the way till 630am...
just in time for sunrise...

Photobucket
and i tried my hand at blackjack,
first time playing at a table in a casino!

Photobucket
i slept for a bit, and then, enroute to Harley Davidson Cafe :)

I couldn't stay longer cuz I wanted to be back for the New Year,
and honestly I shopped little at the Premium Outlets...

I got some BCBG dresses, Ed Hardy sneakers, FCUK tees, a Kate Spade wallet...
no Coach! haha.
I don't really like Coach.

I'm planning to (finally) get a car.
So no more frivolous spending!



I've also been thinking about my constant travelling, my irregular nomadic lifestyle,
my dreams to carve out a singing career,
my motivation to expand Yours Truly (my wedding & events company),
my ideas on writing for my own album...

...and my future lies before me like a desert, a huge expanse of nothingness.

I can take whatever route I want to go,
everyday I wake up and rethink my direction.

Somewhere in this desert, pulsates the treasure of a city that is Las Vegas,
the metaphor of megalomanic success.

I'm still looking for it.
