We have been to Walmart’s a few times buying things she wants for the apartment and herself. Elena enjoys how the store has so many types of items including a food market.
I asked her of her feelings about Las Vegas. Her comments are: “Las Vegas is WOW.” The streets are so wide with many lanes. Even when traffic is bad, it is better than in Philippine cities. There also is a view of the mountains
With the free taste, samples we tried some Tri-tip beef and she was amazed how tender. We did buy a package of 9 mangos. They were from in Mexico but Elena told me how sweet they are. She is also enjoying all the types of apples here compared to the pulpy Fuji apples back home.
The other evening we went to Applebee’s and we had a nice and friendly Filipino waiter. They have a special (promo) running where you get one appetizer and two entrees for $20. We shared an order of spinach and artichoke dip with chips, then Elena ordered a 3 cheese penne pasta with chicken and I had a steak with baked potato. Elena’s eyes opened when she tasted the steak,for the price, the steak was so tender.
There is a site online, ShowTickets4locals.com where you can get free tickets to shows since if a show is not sold out, they like to have “Seat fillers.” Yesterday I ordered tickets to see “Divas” where Nightly Frank Marino is the world’s most beautiful female impersonator, drag queen as Joan Rivers with others impersonators’.

Don’t get too excited guys, these are men.
Before the show, we walked across the street to Caesars Forum where there are some high-end shops and restaurants. Elena enjoyed how beautiful the outside and inside was decorated.
Overall, Elena is enjoying the city, the different tastes of foods available and the large quantizes and varieties. The only problem she has so far is because of the dryness with the low humidity her skin is dry and we both have a cough.
As I asked her what else she feels about Vegas and she said the best part is, she is with “Her husband and he takes such good care of me.”
The flip side is she misses her friends and family but she daily talks, texts and chats with them online. She is also craving many Filipino foods but is enjoying the foods here.
