Living a Malaysian Life

Abu Dhabi & Dubai Mall

Leave a comment

The family have been here for close to six months now and we have only left the Dubai Emirate twice, once for the zoo at Al Ain, and the other was to the Malaysian Island Escapade at Umm Al Quwain. So, since we had not been to the capital of the UAE yet, we decided to take a drive down.

Its around 150km from Dubai, around a two hour trip taking into account the traffic and all. One thing for sure, AD looks a lot greener than Dubai. Linda was not too keen on it as there did not appear to be too many shopping malls around.

The Grand Mosque in AD. A real amazing sight, but it is not completed as yet. The veracruz looks dimunitive next to it, even with the distance.

We did stop by Dubai Mall on the way to AD to visit the Gucci sale. It was 50% off the whole shop, but 50% of a large number is still a large number!

The twins took the opportunity to visit the largest indoor aquarium in the world!

The sharks were a little hard to spot today, somehow they were more in the shadows than normal. Perhaps the warm temp is affecting them too...

Some people pay money (lots of it I might add) to swim with these not so little fellas. Icad thinks that they are so cool!

Other than the aquarium, Dubai Mall also has some pretty nice murals and sofa that is much nicer than what we can afford at home!
