The Dubai Diaries: 5 Key Ingredients For Planning The Perfect UAE Adventure

Regular readers of my blog will know that I love to explore the local surroundings. However, we all enjoy visiting new countries too, especially as international travel is more accessible than ever. Dubai is one destination that I need to see, and I’ve already started planning.


I’ve yet to book anything in concrete, but the plans are already in place for when I do. So if you’re looking to visit in the future, this advice will hopefully help.

#1. A Great Place To Stay


The first thing to look for in Dubai is the right choice of accommodation. The climate means that a comfortable room at night will be vital. Meanwhile, the opportunity to enjoy an unrivaled sense of luxury means that a great pool will be on the agenda also.


After visiting jumeirah.com, I’d love to book a few nights there. That’s probably little more than a fantasy, but Dubai boasts a long list of fantastic hotels and holiday apartments. And that should be the foundation of a great vacation.


#2. Great Food


Anyone that reads my blog on a regular basis will know that enjoying great food is a continued ambition of mine. I would imagine that great food wouldn’t be quite so high on everyone’s list. Nonetheless, it is a crucial element that goes a long way to creating the perfect holiday.


My research shows that Dubai has plenty to offer in terms of great restaurants. However, I’m most excited about the prospect of eating by the backdrop of beaches, sea, and bright lights.


#3. See The Desert


Dubai is well known for its great shopping and immense luxury. On the other hand, it also boasts a number of enchanting natural rewards. Quite frankly, a trip to the UAE without visiting the Arabian desert would be a missed opportunity.

As well as the incredible scenery, visitors can experience camel rides and a variety of activities. VIP tours at myconcierge.com underline how unique and enjoyable this part of a Dubai holiday can be. Regarding excursions and activities, this is top of the list.


#4. Do A Day On The Beach


Dubai is one of the Middle East’s most popular destinations, and the beaches are one of the most important factors for that popularity.


Even if you love being active, it’s hard to resist a day spent on one of the many great beaches. It’s a chance to relax, top up the tan, and maybe a play a few sports. Given that a holiday is a perfect chance to recharge the batteries, a day at the beach sounds like a winner.


#5. Shop Til I Drop


I’m probably not the world’s biggest shopaholic. But with one of the world’s biggest shopping malls on the doorstep, it seems almost impossible to resist. In truth, simply visiting thedubaimall.com has got me excited in anticipation.


Aside from shopping, the massive venue boasts ice skating and an aquarium. With cinemas and other cool features included too, at least one day will be spent here. And, yes, I will be trying out some of the food establishments also.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
