Happy Three Month Anniversary!

On November 30th I celebrated three months living in the UAE! Time is flying! I was lucky to head to Abu Dhabi for an American Thanksgiving dinner at my friends place. The dinner was delicious, my friend ordered a turkey with fixings from the Hilton hotel. We all brought a few dishes and I made an apple crisp that turned out really well. 


We then headed to Dubai for a few nights, we stayed at the Majestic hotel  in the Bur Dubai area, we had a stunning view of the city. I tried to post a picture, but it doesn't even do the view justice. 

We had dinner at Elia a Greek restaurant in the hotel, it was absolutely delicious. I had the moussaka which is like a lasagna with no pasta, just meat (lamb), cheese and eggplant.


We then headed out to Barasti (which is it's Arab backwards) a club on the beach by the Meridien hotel. 


Saturday morning we headed to Dubai mall, there is an iHop there and I had never been.


Breakfast was delicious. 

I have been to Dubai Mall two or three times already and every time I go I am in awe.  



The view from iHop. The large building in the middle is the Burj Khalifah the tallest man made building in the world. 


This is a waterfall located in the mall. The silver men are statues that look like the are diving down the waterfall.


As we approach December the weather here is still holding strong at AMAZING! The morning and evenings are cool, but the days are still super hot.  I do not miss Montreal weather at all. I do not miss snow, cleaning off the car, wearing boot. Some of my friends say they miss the snow and the cooler weather. I on the other hand do not. 

Saturday night we headed to 360, a club that is near the Burj Al Arab, the tallest hotel on the world.



The club is out on the marina and has a 360 view of it. Stunning.

Today we are heading to Global Village and then back to Abu Dhabi for a National Day festivities.
