To the Land of Promised Luxury


Yesterday, I went for a food review with KY & Grace. Details of the food review will be revealed later but more importantly, was the conversation that goes on during the dinner. You see, we were trying to prove that we can all roll our tongues (for me it's evident in most of my photos) and since everyone could do it, KY wasn't satisfied. He wanted to know if all of us could whistle.


In fact, I can tell you that I can't whistle like a pro but I can still make it sound like a boiling kettle except with a lower volume. So, since Grace & I couldn't whistle to save our lives, KY wanted us to take a bet. We would determine the stakes but then Grace made a very good statement. Why would girls wanna whistle. What would we benefit from learning how to whistle? Obviously, girls don't sit at walkways and whistle at guys when they walked past nor do they need to whistle to get a pretty boy's attention. So why would we wanna try so hard to master something which wouldn't benefit us?!! So the deal was off! We did try to take a bet with KY asking him to post about the review today but he didn't accept it either because he knew that he would loose since he is famous for his backlogs! And the damage would be 300bucks per person.


And back to my trip to The Land of Promised Luxury or even the Land of Oil & Sand, it's tonight! I'm flying off to Dubai at midnight and would be arriving at the Dubai Aiport at 3.30am! It's a 7 and a half hours flight and it's 4 hours behind the time of Malaysia.


I'm there for a workcation (work + vacation) as my company is taking part in The Sweets of Middle East Exhibition at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 3rd to 6th Nov 2008. After that, I'm taking a one week off to stay with my parents in Abu Dhabi as I have not seen my dad for the past 4months. And my visit is his happiness because along with my clothes, I brought him his favourite dumplings, dry meat, meat floss, John Grisham novels, DVDs, The Edge and some cooking ingredients that my Mum requested. I'll be back on the 16th Nov and I hope that I can blog as often as possible. Would probably have to fight with my Dad for the network card because the internet charges there is exorbitant. I heard my dad's company is paying more than 10k a month for internet usage.


Although it's not my first visit to Dubai, I am still excited as I have yet to step foot into the Burj Al Arab and also the Burj Dubai (the last time I was there, it was halfway done). It's going to be my shopping trip (indulging in a world of a shopaholic).....

See you at the Lounge tonight! Cheers....
