First Birthday in Dubai

Over excited !

On 21 NOVEMBER 2008 we celebrated the birthday of Muhammad Adrin. It was a very happy occasion for my wife and I and a new experience for both of us too. Because it was the FIRST birthday anniversary of our son ! and in addition to the happy note is that we celebrated it in Dubai !

Adrin woke up very early on his special day at 5.00 a.m. My wife and I tried to get him to sleep but he suddenly laughed and clapped his hands. Then we realised that it was his birthday and he was ready to celebrate. So after breakfast we went to the Mall of Emirates and bought him gifts and cake.




His idea was to touch the fire, not to blow it.


Confused on where has the fire gone



Adrin was waiting for his birthday gifts from this store


Last weekend, we went to visit Dragon Mart in International City. Dubai claimed that this is the biggest shopping mall with all Chinese products under one roof outside China. Well I can confirm that this shopping mall is VERY big and you can get all sorts of Chinese products from toys to forklift inside this mall.

This boy was having a good time loitering in front of the Dragon Mart


My wife like Dragon Mart very much simply because she can get the right size t-shirt for herself and she can bargain the price. My 2-cents advice when dealing with Chinese products... never ever buy their electronic goods. Or if you still want to buy, do not expect it to last long and covered with warranty (yeah I wrote like this but I bought a remote controlled fan from Dragon Mart..very cheap Dhs75 only). As long as it has no mechanical parts inside it, buying Chinese products may worth your money (make sure you got it cheap). As an example, we are still amazed with the fact that we could buy a 10 dirhams t-shirt in Dragon Mart. That was the cheapest bargain we ever got here in Dubai.



Couldn't resist the temptation

The store at the back was selling all kinds of neon lamps


This store provides a lot of towels to choose from


Adrin and his new winter jumper (part of his birthday gifts)

And for me, I like the only Chinese restaurant inside Dragon Mart by the name of Sun Tour Restaurant, obviously because they serve delicious foods that suits my taste budds.

Cheers...

Pasal apa muka anak kau tak rupa kau? Kenapa anak kau macam rupa melayu? Kenapa kau tak buat muka anak kau macam Tamil Tiger? Kenapa kau cuba melupakan keturunan kau? Kenapa kau menderhaka kepada Tamil Tiger? Kenapa kau tak letak nama anak kau Muthu atau Samy?

p/s kenapa tak de gambar chics?

Cohong,
Kan aku dah bagitau lama dulu, muka aku yg sebenar memang kulit putih dan hensem. Itu yg tumpah ke anak aku tu.

Hermzz,
Gambar chics ada, nanti aku email kat kau privately lah, malas la nak tunjuk kat cohong.

Mahas,
Begitulah keadaannya di Dubai sekarang ni, semua orang tengah takut dibuang kerja terutamanya sektor perumahan dan pembinaan. In fact rama Malaysian expat dah kena retrenched dan kena balik Malaysia segera. Sedih juga dengar nasib diorang. As for legal profession, surprisingly we are getting more works out of the contractual dispute by parties who are affected by the recession !! No wonder ppl hate lawyers. hehe

Wahyun,
Itu beruang kutub patut lepak dalam Ski Dubai, tapi mengulau la tu. Good to know you have started pupillage. Now you know !

Mon,
Hang memang pandai teka. Sebab tu aku malas nak taruk gambar aku yg close-up punya nanti kantoi yg kat leher tu wahahaha...

Thanks everybody !!
