Cuti-Cuti Dubai 3

Friday 21112008
Al Qasba, Sharjah

Ermmm finally baru ada masa nak masuk blog sendirik. Real busy bawak the tourists explore Dubai. So yesterday, after Maghrib, as usual babah's spontaneous/adhoc plan; took us to the Eye of Emirates in Sharjah.

A resemblance of London Eye n our Malaysian pride 'Eye of Malaysia', the place is happening during weekends. It becomes Sharjah's most visible icon next to its super famous signature of 'stilled bumper to bumper congested traffic' (real jammed macam KL kalau kena banjir kilat kat Federal Highway). 'The Eye of the Emirates will be highly visible feature of Qanat Al Qasba leisure hub and ideal for family outings. Mommies yg daddies ada overseas assignments tak join kami, so kami 3 families with 12 children dah cukup buat visit kat sana kecoh and happening.


The children, boys and girls accompanied by Uncle Fadzil took the ride on the ferris wheel. Mama and babah 'gayat', so dok bawah jerrr with aunties brok brek2 killing the time.

Standing proudly on Sharjah's Qasba canal, the Eye of the Emirates has become a main attraction at Qanat Al QasbaThe eyes of Emiratesl feature 42 fully air-conditioned passenger cabins, or gondolas, attached to its external rim, with each gondola accommodating eight people at a time.The children really enjoy the gondolas ride and enjoy the panoramic view of 25-30 miles, including breathtaking aerial views of Sharjah and Dubai. It is beautiful tho.




Mommies posing-posing

During winter one can stroll along the canal sandwiched with many food outlets, coffee cafes (Caribou cafe) and other attractions. The main venue has lot of restaurants, among which Lebanese, Indian & Chinese we have noted. There are live musicians too.

Later rasa lapar. ermmm memang asyik lapar je lately masa winter ni, so nampak Lemon Grass Restaurant at an open area overlooking the the scenic Eye of Emirates. Order tomyam and Thai food; beef with chillies and cashewnuts, kailan ikan masin and nasi goreng for the children. The tomyam is superb, cukup rasa and the PMSed mommies mmg craving for tomyam. Yummy!Bagusnye PMSed mommies ni kalau nak sampai 'waktu tu' jenis takde mood swing cuma idea nak penuhkan tekak banyak jerrrrr. Uncle Madi and Auntie Riri , Thankssss. Penattt... balik... tido.


Thursday
997, Al-Qusais Fire Station


The EE Club mommies (Emirates Excursion) or (Emirates Expats) organised a field trip to the fire station with the aim to expose to the children "life of a fireman/firefighters. WE were there with Su FND as early as 4.15 and joined by other mommies.

Unfortunately the officer incharged was unavailable but with the courtesy of another pakcik bomba ni ( he speaks Arabic so has to be translated by Miss Hannan), has the purpose of providing emergency response to conduct educational fire station tours on behalf for the anxious little tots. He took us around showing off his office, explanations on their duties and routiens but the children were only interested on the fire trucks!!!! (they are not red... they are YELLOW). Explanations, firefighter gears exhibitions and putting off fire demo completes the session. The children were happy and really enjoy the show. Thank u Mr Firefighters!!
