Downtown Reno

June 2014 Nevada, USA


Reno is known as "The Biggest Little City in the World" and I named it as the "Liitle Las Vegas".  Also popular for their Casinos and Resorts, this little city is located in western Nevada, part of Washoe County and is near the Californa border.

Lake Tahoe: Kings Beach

June 2014, USA Trip


Kings Beach was named after card shark Joe King, who won the town site from George Whittell nearly a century before poker had a cult cable-TV following.  Set against a vibrant blend of colors, flavors and textures, Kings Beach is kick back. In fact, this stretch of North Lake Tahoe wrote the book on mellow kick back.

 It is rightfully known as the north shore’s banana belt, as it stands in the sun’s path from early morning into the p.m. As if basking under the sun’s glow were not enough, this mountain/beach town throws a sandy welcome to all with a signature downtown public beach.

I really love road trips here in the US, an hour trip from Sparks all the way to Tahoe would make your head spin from these picturesque views along the way. I find it really breathtaking; pictures didn’t do justice from its real beauty.

Grand Canyon (South Rim)

07.2014 Arizona, USA

Before the trip, I remember my friend asked me where I want to go.  I just told her that I just wanna see the Grand Canyon and go back to the Strip. I didn’t demand for any other places ‘coz I know she just had a baby and it’s really hard for us to go places.  These two would really make my vacation complete.

I really didn’t know my friends plan until I get back to Vegas. A week had passed and I found out that we will push through with the plans. Weeee soooooo happy, I really wanted to go there. This is actually one of the highlights of my second visit to the US.


The Grand Canyon, is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the United States in the state of Arizona. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Hualapai Tribal Nation, and the Havasupai Tribe. Wikipedia
