Dubai was a beautiful place. I would love to go back there for the FOOD but I wasn’t fond getting driven by crazy cabbies. Somehow, I find Malaysian drivers are quite polite.
We’ve taken quite a number of pictures of the sand, the skyscrapers, the food and most importantly, the scenery.
We are very serious when we choose our dish for lunch
Noodle Factory Menu which is simplified.. and yes the prices can be a little notch higher
Jake’s Yaki Udon with Lemongrass Chicken & Tiger Prawns
Elaine’s Korean Kimchi with Grilled Beef
And… my Singapore seafood laksa in coconut curry broth
(so, we’ve got Japanese, Korean and Singaporean)
The view from Noodle Factory
Nice to see only
Please find Jake’s masterpiece below.. this picture looks so real and yet it looks like pastel art drawing
Taken at the junction near Dry Docks
(it was man-made to look like part of the docks)
The Burj Khalifa
The musical fountain
Candylicious attracted both the young and the old
At The Top is where we shall go
Dubai strives for inspiration and it really gave me some. Thank you!
We were lucky enough to buy the tickets on-line early. It was sold out on the day we went.
View from The Top but we weren’t exactly at the top. I would probably go weak in my knees if I was on top of the world
There’s still a long way to go…
The names of People who contributed to Burj Khalifa, both physically and mentally
Our amazing view from Novotel, World Trade Centre
Dow Cruise (Dinner + Sightseeing)
It was COLD…..wind blowing cold air.. shivers
DHS 1 to cross the river using this mode of transport
The many skyscrapers of Dubai.. I just love the building designs
SALMONTINI – fine dining (Elena-jakun)
It was snowing inside Mall of Emirates :p
Even the utensils are scaled
I really loved the lemonade with mint leaves
The best seafood soup or should I say broth… EVER!
(can you spot the chunky salmon, tuna and mackerel and dory?)
My dish which was Salmon with couscous and spicy Harissa sauce
(eventually, I surrendered cause I found out I’m not a fan of couscous)
Jake’s Duck with Risotto which was cooked to ‘perfecto’ @ ‘al-dante’
(which eventually became my dish and I would prefer risotto over couscous)
OMG… Fudge Sundae = Paradise
This is the cafe’ for the wealthy.. they rest and have a cuppa and we enjoy the view
Guess what branded stores are these below:
ANSWERS: Top: DIOR, Middle: GUCCI, Bottom: Louis Vuitton
What a fantastic wrap! Bread with mint leaves, bay leaves, goats’ cheese, pickled and condiments
FYI, Sephora will be opening at Starhill Gallery soon! Be sure not to missed it!
On our way to The Palm
Pictures below are of Atlantis, The Palm
For our last day in Dubai, we went for Desert Safari
There were performances too by the locals; belly dancing, fire show, etc.
