Chambers of the Mausoleum

Ack! I'm a horrible blogger.
Or maybe my Life is just too boring to write about...

Anyhow, my birthday is on Saturday. I've been planning a party for it for a few weeks now and it just so happens that I came down with a cold on Tuesday night.

I'm now on a mission to get better in 24 hours which includes round the clock meds and spicy lemon grass soup.

On another note, I'm still trying to find the direction for this blog to take. Mostly I've been using it to review places I've gone to or things I've tried. I guess I could stick with that but I haven't been out as much because October has been a rough month for me. Hopefully I'll something interesting to write about soon...

Last Fun Place I Went To:

Coffin Creek

I love Halloween Time because it's my FAVORITE holiday and right next to my birthday. I love all the spookiness of this time of year so I can't skip going to a few haunted mazes before the month's up. One maze that was a local attraction was the Chambers of the Mausoleum. It used to be located in Riverside but got moved this year. It's now turned into Coffin Creek which houses more mazes and a haunted hayride. I went in a group of 5 and we all purchased wristbands to be able to experience all they had to offer. The Chambers of the Mausoleum is STILL the best attraction, it has amazing movie quality effects and a different way of walking through it than most mazes. If you're a local, I definitely recommend checking it out. A wristband costs $30 and includes 3 walk through mazes, 1 haunted hayride, and 1 comedy show.

Fancy, Shmancy-ness

Well, a lot of things have happened since my last post but I won't bore anyone with the details. To sum it up, I'll just say that it definitely hasn't been a smooth road and things are still on shaky ground. But one thing I'm learning from my BIOL 5 class is that stressing about Life can be dangerous for ones health so I'm trying to live in the here and now.

This past weekend, the Boyfriend and I spent two nights in Las Vegas. It was on business but we still tried to have some fun while we were out there. We had lunch as this super fancy (and expensive hehe) French cafe. It's called Petrossian Lounge and it's located in the Bellagio. We'd been there once before because I have a fondness for cultural cuisine and they have pretty decent Caviar.

Boyfriend indulged in a cigar and I had the Caviar Waffles. I don't know what kind of Caviar they use, probably the farm-grown kind, but they put it on top of little waffle squares with some red onion and creme. It's actually really good if you like Caviar in the first place.  

The best thing about the place? Great live Pianist and it's super cozy. You can sit on couches if opt out on chairs. And it's the perfect place to people watch when you're feet need a rest!
