The Mirage, Vegas

I’ve always associated myself with the word Mirage, thus the name of this blog. What’s a Mirage?

  1. An optical phenomenon that creates the illusion of water, often with inverted reflections of distant objects, and results from distortion of light by alternate layers of hot and cool air. Also called fata morgana.
  2. Something illusory or unobtainable.
As I once said, “In life, there are things that would be just an illusion, no matter how near they may be.” It’s a fitting description too for one of the expensive hotel-resort constructed in history, The Mirage, a hotel-casino at the Las Vegas Strip. There, on a business trip or vacation, one can forget the worries of everyday life and experience the ephemeral joys of easy life (albeit spent with a high price).

 

Mirage, unobtainable, yet in a fleeting moment one can enjoy the luxury life has to offer in this grand hotel. Sleep soundly in a comfortable room with quality service and have a view of the wonderful nightlights at the strip before you dose off. Their buffet tops the ranks among the strip, not only with quality service but with fresh and sumptuous food at very affordable prices.

 

If you are one who enjoy playing online whether puzzles, strategic, role-playing games, or card games such as poker or betting games like those offered by bingopalace.com, you can enjoy such at The Mirage. Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Ultimate Texas Hold’em and a lot more are what you can expect to play there.

 

If like me you are one who does not gamble, here are some of the things you can do when you visit Las Vegas.

 

Shop. As with other hotels around the strip, The Mirage offers an array of brands to choose from. You don’t need to go far to buy your new pair of shoes and a dress to go with it. There’s the Watch Boutique which showcases the finest watches and assorted jewelry from around the world. There are also shops for snack items, Godiva chocolates, logo merchandise and plush toys that would be great as giveaways to family and friends when you come back home.

 

Relax. Spend a quiet hour or two relaxing and having a massage, a scrub or facial treatment or the whole package and enjoy your stay even more having that feeling of ease. Pamper yourself – your nails and  even your crowning glory at the best Salon, the Strip has to offer.

 

Swim. The Mirage pools interconnect through lagoons and has a magnificent cascading waterfall, so picturesque. Enjoy sunbathing or have a leisurely swim in its crystal clear waters.

 

Enjoy. Golf, Gardens, Dolphins, Aquarium. Boredom is a word that doesn’t exist here so enjoy whichever you fancy, from playing golf to having a stroll at the lush gardens or from watching a dolphin show to the viewing the most colorful fishes around.

 

Enjoy your stay at The Mirage for it is a mirage after all, you’d only know it’s gone after you come back to work the next day. ^_^
