Eyes Theraphy In Dubai... :)

Yesterday events would be the most exciting ones. Coming to Dubai is incomplete without a visit to Gold Souk, Spice Souk, and many more souks, and i ended up the day with a visit to the most posh building in the world, Burj Al Arab and Jumeira Al Madinat... What a wonderful journey...

When i was in the Gold Souk, it's awesome but my money is valueless here. But i got my eyes theraphy. THat's good enough. Gold- white or yellow are sold all along the street with all sorts of design. Mind you i found Happy Diamond - Chopard, Bylgary Jewelry - those sets cost you nothing less that 2K but definitely cheaper than the boutique itself. So Zairin must put this Gold Souk as 1st. agenda on her visit very soon. Mate, i got some pictures for you...

Spice Souk is awesome for food lover or cook lovers.. I am so happy that i managed to get here. The spices sold are cheap and fresh.

Then there we go to Burj Al Arab. This time we already picked up a car and i drove from one street to another. Frankly speaking driving in Dubai or in general in UAE is easier rather than taking taxi. But not to those who wanted to go around the city. It's jam packed and lots of crazy taxi driver started to pinch their car honk... that'll makes u crazy.

These are among the beautiful pictures taken along the way towards Burj Al Arab and in front of the Burj. Enjoy it. Will try to take some more pictures of the burj al arab in the daylight... today. Insyaallah..

Soul Theraphy in United Emirates

After few years of dreaming about going to Dubai... Alhamdulillah finally manage to get blessing from hubby & good offer from MAS, return tickets for only RM1600++ on top of forgo my Enrich points & half of hubby's. Travelling for almost 8 hours from KL to Dubai via Karachi was quite wonderful. Being seated next to Finance Manager of Abbot (Pakistan), we spent time talking about our countries etc. Lots of Q about Malaysian History were unable to be answered correctly as am not good in that. Sorry sir. But then again, i wish Pakistan & Malaysia is just next door for his company produces Pediasure, Isomil nutrition milk for kiddies.. and he can get it at staff price.. ha ha ha... I can't afford to buy that in Malaysia.. it'a expensive. Then he's off in Karachi. The next person's coming was another mid age pakcik Pakistani in late 40's. A businessman in Dubai.. He's off to Dubai after coming back for a short holiday in Karachi. Dressed in modern attire with nice suit while 80% other Pakistani population in Economy Class that day were dressed in Shalwar Khamis + all sorts of smells (attar and curries etc) He he...

Shortly after landed in Dubai, Linda (a friend working in Abu Dhabi hospital) came to fetch me. Tell you, taxi rental and food are expensive in UE. Trip from Abu Dhabi-Dubai is cost around UED200. 2nd day in UE - we off to Dubai city from Abu Dhabi by bus (UED20) for sightseeing. Visiting Wafi Mall - a very posh mall with Egypt Design. I can't afford to shop here.. After having lunch and some window shopping, I tried to get my Dubai Planet Hollywood shirt but unfortunately it runs out of stock for the moment. The PH is just somewhere outside Wafi Mall. Then we off by taxi (UED17) to Naeff area to get some cloth or materials in Pulwanis. This shop is so famous for Malaysia. The owner and co-workers can speak well in Bahasa and you'll find the tagline for the shop is 'AIR CREW SHOP'. Once we enter the shop, there are pairs of aircrews inside, doing some material shopping etc. This shop offers good material at good price and it melts RM1300 out from my pocket...Shhhuuuussshhh... :)

But the amount i paid is for 15 pairs of combination chiffon, crepe satin and good cottons... so worth it isn't?

well, that's all till now. will cont..
