Dubai trip - first 2 days

Heeeeeeeeeeyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! I am back...did u all miss me???im here with a short update about my ongoing Dubai trip.....so here i go...

after a flight that got delayed for 4 hours...i finally reached Dubai on 11th night at 9.30pm...my bhaiya n bhabhi (my bro and his wife) were here to pick us up from the airport..we were welcomed to awesomely pleasant weather in dubai with a slight drizzle...and as soon as we came out...the cars were a feast for the eyes...i mean Audi...Porsche...Bentley..u name them..n they are here...not tht they arent there in India..but just the sheer numbers....amazing...newaz we drove back home in the new Cadillac Escapade that my bro recently got for his wife...reached home...we all had diner...and then all of us..me n my family..my bro n his family..all of us sat together and just gossiped late in to the night....

woke up late the next day...and ate a hevy breakfast..and we decided to venture out on our tour of Dubai..the first place we hit was the Mall of the Emirates...its awesome...really amazing...huge huge mall...all international brands...totally cospomolitan outlook..and hot chicks with hot numbers on them..and i mean hot numbers...lol...newaz...so shopped around a bit...got ourselves amazing chocolates from Patchi...and the day just went by and we didnt even realize...in the night...my bro took us out for dinner to this place called Meddinah de jumeirah( i hope i got the name right or i ll change it later)... for thai food...the way to the restaurant frm the entrance is thru a boat ride...and it was so amazing...to sit in a boat n roam around thru beautifully lit buildings to reach the restaurant...had amazing thai food..dumplings...rice...and lots of more thai dishes..lol......by the time we finished n reached back it was like 1.30am...so again gossiped into the night...and slept off...

our plan for today was to take a tour of the city...go checkout the palace of the sheikh..the museum..the wafi city...and all...but then the best surprise of the day happened...Bush uncle has come to UAE from Kuwait..so the city's got closed down because of security reasons...(why Mr Bush..why at this time...)....so we went to another mall called Ibn Batutta..n trust me u have to be here to see the architecture of this mall..its amazing..its a whole magical city inside...so we spent alot of our day here..and then we went of to this market called Kamara...where u get all the fashionable stuff at low cost...so got some stuff from there..and we headed back home to celebrate Lohri...Lohri is a north Indian festival celebrated to mark the end of winters n all..i dont knw the exact story...but celebrating lohri today outside India with the family was a great moment....and after that we came back home... Happy Lohri everyone!! and its 3.52am now...n im gonna go doze off :)

I ll put up the pics later once i get back to delhi :)..till then hang on ....n keep visiting :)..detailed post to come later :)
cheers!!

What beautiful imagery in this post. Am I going to see a photo of a real sheikh palace? Squee. Hope so. I read sheikh romance books. Kate Walker is one of my favorite authors and a dear friend.

Hugs, JJ
