The time of year has come for traveling. Everybody is thinking about packing their bags with what they are going to wear, and what accessories they are going to need. However, there is something people tend to forget about – their eye health. It’s easy to take care of your eyes routinely when you are home. When you travel, things tend to get a little trickier, as there is so much to see and do, that you tend to forget about how important it is to think about your health. Imagine having an emergency during your trip, far away from home, because you didn’t take certain things into consideration before you headed out.

Don’t postpone making a doctor’s appointment

You might be thinking that visiting a doctor can wait until you’re home. The truth with every eye issue is that it needs to be taken care of in due time. Eye problems are similar to a lot of other issues – they tend to get worse the later you decide to deal with them. An eye scratch that you get before your travel can turn into an ulcer if you don’t go to the doctor right away to treat it. So, before you decide to head out for your trip, make sure that you pay a visit to an ophthalmologist. Better to be safe than sorry!

Sydney’s nightlife suffered a heavy blow by the adoption of lockout laws, but there are still a few spots around town where nighthawks can make late camp and have their scotch on the rocks – for as long as they do it before the curfew, that is.


Back in early 2014, the New South Wales government passed the Liquor Amendment Act to curb alcohol-fueled violence in Sydney’s main entertainment precinct, and the legislative move dealt a heavy blow to the city’s nighttime economy. The lockout laws envisage 1.30AM lockouts and 3AM last drinks at hotels, bars, pubs, and clubs in Sydney’s CBD, as well as a ban on takeaway alcohol sales after 10PM across the state. Following an independent 2016 lockout law review by Ian Callinan, however, the government vowed to relax the legislation for live music venues by a half-hour and to extend takeaway and home delivery spirits sale by 11PM. Still aggrieved as they may be, Sydney’s nighthawks can now indulge in their liqueur and late-hour entertainment in establishments which managed to survive the two-year dry spell inflicted by the curfew. New in town? Here are the top four spots that promise nightlife to match your highest standards.

Just because I’m Vietnamese doesn’t mean I have an intrinsic love for gambling. Who am I kidding? Of course I love it! I thrive on the excitement, the adrenaline, the competition, and the dream that the next hand or pull of the handle would land me the BIG ONE. It’s no surprise that I’ve been to Las Vegas more times than I can count.

I remember grinding it out with my college roommates in online gambling tournaments – we were practicing to become pros. But the dream would soon be shelved, we weren’t very good.

After a while we found solace in the simplicity of online blackjack and various other games available online for us to practice our craft and even play with real money. And though I’ve always loved the excitement of the tables, I’ve never spent more than $100 on these games.

I might love card games, but I hate losing money. So, I’d spend the $100 each time I’m in Vegas to satisfy that itch or online if I want to play from the comfort of my home, but the adventure has always been the sights and sounds of the city and natural landscapes surrounding it.

So, if you’re in Vegas, here are some things you can do away from the tables – unless the tables are your thing, then I totally understand:
