Custom Aquadecor 3d background in, 2 Fx6 cannister filters in the cabinet, 2 Aqueon 250watt heaters hidden behind the rocks, White eco-complete Cichlid sand in place, water currently cycling. Can't wait to put the fish in!
Only there for two days but saw a lot of sights like the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Garden by the Bay, Merlion, and more! Check out more pictures in my travels page here! Singapore Vacation
Credit to Aquadecor for making a very realistic looking rock custom 3d background for me. Build time was a week, ship time about 2 weeks (international and had a little mix up with the post office) and finally arrived here a few days ago. It comes in 7 separate sections that fit together like a puzzle. I had to silicone each part to the back glass of the aquarium. Just waiting now for the silicone to cure before I add my substrate (white sand) and water and start cycling my tank. For those that don't know, cycling means I need to build up the beneficial bacteria before I can put fish in the tank. That will be another update when I start cycling. Thanks Aquadecor for an awesome background!
Mr. Chopstix is a hidden gem of a restaurant, very similar to the Noodle Man restaurant on Rainbow. Both from the outside, it seems like a fast food generic Chinese restaurant. But once you go inside, the clean, modern decor convinces you otherwise. With an open kitchen, you can be sure the dishes are clean. Only about a year old, they serve Taiwanese/Chinese food and have a wide variety of tasty authentic menu items. All the things I tried were very flavorful, delicious and heavy, but just a bit oily. Good and attentive service, pricing is fair, and they also serve boba! Will definitely come back here to try their other dishes.
First year of Springfest right where I work at Boca Park. Fun and games and food and rides! Except the basketball game is rigged. Don't play that game.
One of the few Filipino restaurants here in Las Vegas. And on top of that, one of the best ones. Got off to a slow start however, as the coffee we ordered was cold, service was a little shaky, but soon picked up as I believe the waiter was new and still training. I think the manager of the store took over and was very nice and helpful in ordering the food. If you want large portions, come here. The lechon was pretty much the whole leg of a pig and delicious. The dishes were all flavored very well, and also had a selection of sauces for everything. The decor is modern/urban with a bar right in the center with a good selection of beer. Very clean and spacious inside, and also a karaoke/dance/live music area. Seems to still be a new restaurant but looks like it's picking up. Will definitely come back here with more people. Solid Filipino restaurant here in Las Vegas. Check it out at 2131 Rock Springs Dr.
Not sure about this restaurant yet. I will have to come back and try some other dishes. The reason I say that is there seems potential to be great, but there is just something off in everything I tried. The xiao long bao was steamed well, juicy inside, good amount of meat inside, but when dipped in their sauce, the flavor totally changed and didn't quite match. The squid ink fried rice was good, but was not able to taste the squid ink as much as I'd like. The beef rib noodle soup was very good, and unique as it came with a large rib instead of your usual cut up meats. But there was nothing particular special with the taste. From the dishes tried however, it definitely is authentic Chinese food, fancied up. All in all, good restaurant with a lot of menu options so I'll be back! Find it at 3400 S Jones Blvd Ste 16.
