Carnival Cruise Part 1

Went on a Cruise with the family Dec. 29 to Jan. 6 to Mexico.  We also had two Richards and one Cynthia join us on our cruise. This was the my first time cruising with Carnival Cruise. The people on Carnival exceeded my expectations. I wouldn’t mind cruising with Carnival for my next cruise.

Chris and Tyler waiting for the shuttle to pick us up. That was one of the views that we saw before leaving San Diego. One thing  Carnival did wrong was that they didn’t seat us together. They sorta fixed the probably by the next night.  Of Course Tyler had to come visit the cool table.

Since we were on the ship for a couple days.  We had to find ways to entertain ourselves until the ship would dock.  Me and my dad sign up for ping pong tournament. Of Course I lost my match. I couldn’t believe my dad lost too. Cynthia and Richard were chilling in the jacuzzi for most of there day.  My fiancee  and sis  just lounged  by the pool to kill time.

Went to go watch Tyler play miniature golf.  Cynthia kissing her slot machine before the start of the tournament.   Chris also entered the tournament.  Too bad they both lost in the slot tournament.

Just taking some pictures before we head off to dinner.  As you can tell it was formal night.

The best part of formal night on a cruise is the food.  Our group ordered  twice as much as most tables.

Vegas Baby

Went to Vegas for the 4thof July on a last minute decision. Went with couple of friends on Friday morning. We had tons of fun. You always have fun when you go to Vegas. Did a lotof different things in Vegas. Check out how big that piece of corn is compared to a dime. That was the first time I ate at Samba Sushi. The food was okay but it was a good experience. We stayed at Ceasars Palace and we had a great view of the strip. Hopefully I have money to go to Sema this year.

What happens in Vegas stay in Vegas

Went to Vegas last weekend with my family. We had a great time there. We all stayed at the Trump. This is the fanciest hotel I ever stayed at. Now I want a TV in my restroom for my future house. We also ate at this great tasting Japanese restaurant. After the food the guys went to the strip club. We went to Sapphire Gentlemen’s club. It’s the Las Vegas biggest strip club. You should pre-party before you go there. The drinks are really expensive. Just a hint to the guys.

Went down under

I went to Australia for two week in December. I went to visit my grandma and family there. I had a great time there. There weren’t as much shopping as I like. My two cousins help me keep busy so I wasn’t to bored. They have trains in Australia so you don’t need a car to get to places.  They have tons of great food to eat in Australia. Our money was worth a lot more then before so that helped alot. For the guys make sure to visit the beaches. Tops are optional.

 

Time to fly. To bad the flight was delayed and we landed late too. The flight back was way better. I got 4 seats to myself. Just like flying vip.

These pictures are from Bondi beach. It a great place to visit. We just took the train and transfered onto a bus that take you to the beach. Hung out there with my cousins for couple hours.

This was the best shop I found in Australia. The workers were really helpful and friendly to talk to at Espionage. They had tons of great stuff to buy. I bought a pair of Nike Terminator “X-Ray” Lo. I also picked up couple shirt from Kiks Tyo. I haven’t found any of the shirt in the state. They had great selection of shirts at the shop. The shoe selection was the best I saw in Australia. They have two shops. Make sure to pay them a visit if your ever in Sydney.

Found this great Korean restraunt by accident. Just ran into this place when were hungry. Ate there with my cousin. The food was great. They don’t speak much english here. The food made up for it. Then when your done cross the street and shop at Espionage.

 

These are just a couple of the pictures that I took in Sydney Australia.

BONJOUR

I went to Paris this month with my girlfriend.  I went to the Eiffel Tower to get something done. If you look at the pictures you will know what happened.  It was really cold and the line was really long. I’m just glad it didn’t rain. In Paris there were alot of things to keep you busy.  Just make sure you not there on a Sunday. Most of the shops are closed on Sunday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We went to Château de Versailles to visit Palace of Versailles. This castle was huge. It was getting some parts of it remodeled. It was in great shape for how old it was. Didn’t have time to go into the castle. You would’ve taken atleast a couple hours to walk around the whole place. Maybe I’ll get to go in next time I’m there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This area with the Arc de Triomphe was the only place open on Sunday. Not all the stores were open but alot were. My girlfriend was happy since Louis Vuitton was opened. As you can tell with how many bags she had at the end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shopping part of my NY trip

This part of the trip was really fun. We went to tons of shoe and colthing stores. I got to buy some stuff that I couldn’t get here in cali. Wish I had more money to buy all the stuff I saw. If I ever go back to NY for sure I’m stopping by these stores again.

This is the Niketown in NY. This Niketown has 4 floors. These pictures are from the forth floor. This are is called the Nike ID Studio. This is where they have a selection of shoes that you can customize yourself. These are the outside shots of the studio. You must make an appointment before you go or when you get there.

nike-id-13.jpg

There is a nike employ that helps you with customizing your shoe. The hard part is picking all the color and special material they have.

nike-id-14.jpg

This was the final product. I picked a nike dunk low to customize. They let you nake your shoe. They give you a special card with you shoe on it. Then you want 4 to 6 weeks for the shoe to come in the mail.
