All's good!

  • I got a new, temporary work laptop to replace my sick laptop that needed to be sent to the doctor...woohoo! I am no longer disconnected from Blogland :)
  • I'm on vacation (again!)
  • I found out last week that my rent can't go up this year. Here I was wondering how I could possibly afford another 15% increase, when Sheikh Mo decided that for those who had their rents increased last year, there would be no increase this year. So I won't have to leave my apartment hopefully (unless the landlord decides to kick me out because a "relative" wants to move in....). Double woohoo!

In other news, my cousin (a regular reader of this blog) is visiting from out of town, and although he knows Abu Dhabi really well, Dubai is still foreign to him. So here's a question for you all: if you had some visitors from out of town, and you only had time to take them to one place in Dubai, what would that place be?

Looking forward to all your comments....

Agency Bar in Madinat Jumairah

NZM welcome back!

I'd take him first to Karatchi Darbar in Satwa followed by a drink at the bar on top of the Emirates Tower.

I know it's two places, but it's a show of contrasts and he might like it :)

Cranky...Yeah, the Burj is nice...but I hate the inside of that hotel, it's too showy! I find the Jumeirah Beach Hotel much nicer than the Burj....

NZM, welcome back! Are you here for good?

Jin & Mory....lol!

Anon...I'm a big fan of the Agency too :)

Buj, never heard of Karatchi Darbar...must be an interesting place.

Thanks for the suggestions!
