Dubai #96: Fun Weekend!

Fun because i enjoyed ice-skating with hubs for 2 hours in DubaiMall. Entrance fee including skate hire cost us Dhs100 (2 pax), cheap! After being in UAE for months, i finally agreed to hub’s constant nagging to skate with him… Yep, he’s a much better skater than i am.

The skating activity went well, fell on my butt only once (yay to my balancing skill)… Surrounded with young kids/ adults skating confidently made me felt tad embarassed, an average learner i sure was. But hey! Hubs commented (with a wide smile) i did well as a beginner, which i thought so too. He was very encouraging and patient the whole time. Love him to bits!

Our brunch, which consists of sandwiches, and my must-have morning ‘English Breakfast’ tea, to satisfy our tummies:

To not think about work, enjoy and spend any weekend without boundaries is bliss! Life is gorgeous!


Dubai #95: UAE Public Holidays

A long Eid weekend holiday in UAE too. I was super glad for this as it purely means no work but rest, rest and more rest. Before i could leap with hooray… Was called back to work.

I just got home and at the same time my weary eyeballs are showing signs of dehydration! Argh.

Was a good day overall at work i would say, but lack of sleep doesn’t do me much good recently.

At least tomorrow, i get to enjoy some me time. Maybe more shopping therapy tomorrow…


Dubai #94: Winter is Here

Light rainfall in some parts of UAE, as mentioned in the local weather news. Base on this first rainfall today, it means winter is here!

The first of the North Westerly cold draughts. Cooler days ahead. Temperature will drop in the next few days. *beams*

Dubai #93: Al Fahidi Fort Museum (I)

After residing in UAE for 10 months, i finally had mini time to do some touristy activity, which i couldn’t ignore. Al Fahidi Fort Museum (in Bur Dubai) was the tourist spot we chose today.
It’s lcoation is very close by to where we live, just a 5-8 mins taxi ride (Dhs 8).

Dubai #92: Weekend!

Yet another weekend. Had a tedious week as usual, working 11-13 hours daily is never a luxury!

Woke up late today due to yesterday’s late night (11pm) movie date with hubs, 2012 the movie was indeed visually dramatic, but was well scripted.

After some power sleep, headed to Dubai Mall for a scrumptious Asian lunch at NoodleFactory, hubs had Indonesian Nasi Goreng,  i selected Malaysian Chah Kway Teow and vege spring rolls to share. Yep, you read it right, those were the exact words spelled in their menu. And the food tasted quite close to Malaysia’s nasi goreng and kway teow, the only difference, it’s served in an upmarket restaurant.

Total bill came up to Dhs 130 including one cappuccino and a soft drink. This restaurant will now be our faves for an Asian dine-in!

Walked around the mall right after… Bought myself 3 tops, a short dress (total Dhs 99) and a Versace Perfume. Was glad the clothes were on a yummy discount!
