Winter In Dubai




Winter dah ke kat Dubai ni? Yup, the day is shorter now and the temperature has fallen besides at nite it is now quite chilling. Taking the children playing and cycling at the piazza was nice n we like it. Iman kept on asking me bila nak snow as children always associate the vocab 'winter' with snow falls and everything is buried white underneath and it is all white as one's eye could see. Ermm takde snowlah sayang! Kat Dubai ni rasa sejuk jer... then she pestered babah dia for snowy trip... not to ski Dubai but somewhere really snowy. The last time we took Iman and Intan to Beijing to experience snowy adventure was when Iman was only 1 year plus. Don't think she has any vivid pictorial memory on that trip at all. December will be her school holiday and the children from Malaysia pun cuti sekolah so planning for a vacation for our family. It has been so long the we didn't go for vacation before we had Ilham n Irdina. So we decided to go to Iran taking her and our other two growing anak angkat (Anwar n Intan) to Iran plus Ilham and Irdina of course. They are actualy mama's nephew and niece. More updates on Anwar n Intan later.




Dizin Ski Resort - cantik kan? and too good to be missed! Iman, Intan, Ilham, Auntie Riri, Sofia, Yasmeen and Alisya and the rest dah pasang angan2 nak guling-guling atas salji click-click crazy!!! hahahah takdak rezekilah tu. Tapi takper biar Auntie Nor n auntie Moi gi dulu.Kena tunggu the chidren besar baru dapat pergi semua.


Dizin (Persian: پیست اسکی دیزین) is a ski resort situated to the north of Tehran in the Alborz mountain range. The huge Dizin ski resort has a reputation for excellent snow, because of its altitude and the north facing slopes. The high altitude, also makes the ski season in Dizin last longer than European ski resorts. The highest ski lift reaches 3,600 m (11,800 ft), making it one of the 40 highest ski resorts in the world.Dizin ski amenities including two hotels, 19 cottages and 5 restaurants, cheap and beautiful villas and private apartments around the Dizin ski resort accommodate thousands of people every year. With only two hours of driving away from Tehran many people prefer not to stay overnight.

Went googling on the ski mountain in Iran (Dizin Ski MountainResort) was our priority as closer to Tehran... looks wonderful and has been visualizing drama winter sonata). It gonna be fun!!! for the children. The excitement mounted and did necessary search.

So asking for quotations from several travel agencies... semua kata they don't do trips to Iran (tak famous konon compared to other European countries) hampeh betullah until we got the info from our Malaysian Tourism Officer here that it is not advisable to overnight at the ski resort for families with children below 3. Hopes shattered for Iman (mama pun) , she seemed to be frustrated as has planned to play snowballs and making snowman. Nasin baik dah bawak depa pi Dubai ski earlier when we first arrived in Dubai. Well SERUPA tapi TAK SAMAkan. But we have to consider the other two as well as it would defeat the purpose if we were to go to Iran and to the ski mountain only on a day trip basis but not putting up a nite there and to miss to venture the excitement there. RUGILAH kan??? Takpe malam-malam nanti mama discuss the vacation issue later kay darlings. Sure and InsyaAllah we will go but somewhere else !!! Tunggu. (Any suggestions?)



Then cari balik gambar Iman, Ilham n Baba kat Dubai Ski. At least at that time Iman n Ilham were enjoying themselves and really had a great time. Mama and Baby Dina dok kat luar relax-relax watching them. Dina was only 7 months then. Kenalah pulak bawak Si Abg Anwar and Intan ke Dubai Ski when they are here - Cuti-Cuti Dubai.


Ilham cute, eventhough at that time she was onlt two but because she is tall; the counter boy releasde her masuk dalamdubai ski, though at the gate the guy was suspicious that she was not 3yr. Memang pun!! tapi rezeki, Ilham dapat masuk.
