Another Family Visits

March 21, 2010

I forgot that last time when my parents came to visit, I didn't even blog about it. I was so occupied and tired that I totally didn't have time to blog. Anyway, here are some photos from my aunt's visit last week. I'll guide you from here, on each event.

Until today, we already had 2 families visiting, my parents in December and my aunt, last week. Well, I am the tourist guide. I drove them around here and took them everywhere, so they get to spend everyday, 'jalan-jalan ' all the time.

Visit to The Walk in Dubai Marina, is a must. I took them here too. Except the kids went to play on the beach before more walk on The Walk.

ape yang anak beranak ni tengok ye?

Ice cream at Cone Street? A must!

Ice cream at the Cone Street Gelato.

Atlantis, Palm Jumeirah also a MUST! :) Admiring the architecture and the big tank inside it.

That is one BIG fish!

see, how big the tank is..?

And then there goes the Tawassol Restaurant. Eating the good mandiy rice is a MUST! 'Rugi kalau tak try'!

The souvenir hunting in Gifts World, Karama. Well, I usually take them out to Karama during working hours. It's easy to find a parking spot and less crowded.

My aunt said, Ibn Batutta Mall and all other big malls in Dubai make all the malls in Malaysia looks puny. She said that when we were at Ibn Batutta Mall. They were fascinated by the architecture, and how big the malls are and how this people could design such thing just for a mall.

Really big!! This is China Court. One of the 5 parts of the mall. Which are, China, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia and India

And then there's the Burj Khalifa with it's signature Dubai Mall. With a beautiful view and musical fountain show that starts at 6pm, every 20 minutes, every day. I took them here too, because it's a MUST when you visit Dubai.

And then, the photography session by the Burj Al-Arab. You can only go in by reservation only. Without any reason, you can't go in. Even a high tea cost you more than AED350 (RM300 ++). Expensive? Of course, it's the only 7 stars hotel in the world.

Not to missed, Bur Dubai. Bur (means, kampung). Is an old part of Dubai. This is the place where you can see many people and cultures. Not the modern Dubai, instead you can see other foreigners from Pakistan, India, Africa, etc and it's really different from the city. It's where you shop for abayas, 'jubah', 'kain' and many other stuffs that you can get with a really cheap price. I took them to Naif Road.

Shop for 'jubah sulam'

The Ski Dubai. Skiing in the middle of the desert?  My parents kind of, 'it's ok, tak try pun takpe.' but not my uncle, he came here for the ski experience. So are the kids, for the snow and it's in Mall Of Emirates (MOE), which not far from my place, took less then 15 minutes to arrive.

Well the journey doesn't stop there. I mean, we didn't just travel around Dubai, but we took them to other places.

Qanat Al-Qasba in Sharjah

The kids sure love it

Jump, kids! Jump!

Hey, it's not fair! Wait for me!

We took my aunt and her family to a place in the desert where you can rent a quart bike and go around the place for 30 minutes. Besides that, there's a quart bike for the kids, and camel ride for anybody who doesn't want to ride the bike.

The guys in action, Fadzil and my uncle.

'jalan-jalan naik unta'

Show off!!

Well, that's all there is on their visits. My parents, and my aunt. 2 separate visits. They didn't stay long though, but we are happy they at least came to visit us, plus 'jalan-jalan' Dubai. I hope more of our families will come.
