This is my pamilya in Las Vegas.
Pamilya means family in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines.
These are the photographs on my first day. This is the lifestyle of my auntie and uncle who has lived to Vegas for at least 20 years.
I asked my relatives, "What was the biggest pot of money you won?" Thinking, you must have learned something living for so long in the state of chance.
"I won $1,200," said my aunt, "that is all."
"What did you do with?" She chucked, " I spent all of it."
After we spend a luxurious buffet at a hotel, she slipped me $20.00. It was my first time on the slots - and, I lost it all. Didn't have the Vegas luck, and I probably never will.
