Dubai was awesome....and im back home in Delhi....well here are the details abt the last few days...

14th Jan..Bush uncle arrived and Dubai came to a standstill....the desert safari got postponed to the last day...ie..15th..as Dubai was entirely sealed off on the 13th till Bush uncle was doing his sight seeing at our expense.. :(....newaz..so with ntn much to do..my bro took us to the Palm Island..now this island is amazing..its been reclaimed from sea in the shape of a palm tree...if u see the ariel view u ll knw what i am talking abt...alot of development has taken place here..there are villa's, hotels, shopping complexes et al over here...jus amazing to be here...see the pics below..the lanes here where the villas are situated are the leaves of the palm tree...

after spending some time there we again went off to the Mall of emirates...and spend our evening there shopping...had coffee at Starbucks..damn they should come to India soon..bought a new LCD HD TV, the latest one at a decent price :)...its awesome....then we came back home...had dinner..and gossiped into the night :)...

15th Jan - Well it had been raining non stop in Dubai for the last 2 days and it kept continuing...this resulted in the Desert Safari being called off by the organizers...first Bush n then the rain...next time around i guess..so we decided to explore the city...so bhabhi became our tour guide and we went off to a few places..the first stop was Dubai museum...we got to know abt the history of Dubai, its development of late n all..and we took a few pics...lol...

next on went to WAFI City mall..now this mall has been designed in Egyptian style...u can see the architecture in the pics below...a very classy mall...alot of natives and arabic ppl prefer to shop here according to the local views :)...nice place to spend time :)..even Miss Universe Sushmita Sen has a jewellery store here...after spending the evening here...we headed back home..somehow u dont realize how time goes by in the malls at Dubai...we came at around 2pm..and left arnd 7pm..didnt realize that we had spend 5 hrs there..lol....this is there for all the malls of Dubai...lol...came back home...dinned and packed up our stuff...then gossiped into the night...talking about old times et al...amazing time...

16th Jan- Headed out for the airport to catch a flight back to delhi...dubai airport is awesome...n so is the Duty free area...got loads of liquer n chocolates..lol :)..boarded the flight n came back home :)

n now abt the babes of Dubai...well wat do i say...simply gorgeous...i mean gorgeous..whether it was the make up or the new stylish abaya (the dress arabic women wear)....simply bowled me over...even the female who was checking the passport at the airport..she had full make up on..french manicured nails..mascara..eye liner...n wat not..she could ve won any beauty pageant out there...lol...well hats off to the beautiful babes of Dubai :)..lol...
