Abu Dhabi/Dubai Trip Part Dieux

Spent Wednesday night at Il's house in Khalifa city (yayyy for electricity and airconditioning :D). I know I sound like a fob but really, after 10 months in Karachi with frequent power breakdowns and water issues, the developed world is like... wow! LOL.

We ate Il's delicious date, banana and walnut cake and watched How I Met Your Mother. Then, we headed to Festival City. I think we were going at 130 miles/hour when there was a hissing noise and the car wobbled... headed to the side of the road and 5 minutes later, a shurta showed up with a big grin on his face. We followed him to a gas station, got the tire fixed and headed towards Mall of the Emirates instead of going all the way to Festival City.

We had lunch at Al-Hallab... great food and pretty reasonable (the fettoush is good). Then, started hard-core pre-wedding shopping (except I ended up mostly buying gifts for my family :)). It amazes me how comfortable I am with a Moroccan, a Palestinian, an Egyptian and a Lebanese girl but I can barely relate to most Pakistan females :O.

We bought lingerie and sleep wear except, I know I'm going to feel super, super awkward wearing it :P (any tips for getting rid of stretch marks and cellulite in 3 weeks?).


  1. Aw, Masha'Allah you sound like you're enjoying it!

    Oh, you'll be surprised at how many imperfections everyone else has *cough* Girls still end up the prettier and more perfect partner, hehehe.

    Erm, keep the lights dim? hehehe :-)

  2. Sniff Sniff... Rainbow colors. xoxo Polari Buch
