The Invasion of the Wombats

i've been updating my facebook status with a couple of "wombats" coming to visit. for the clueless, the wombats are my younger sisters, coming to dubai for a holiday - scheduled to arrive, tonight!

why 'wombats', you may ask. i guess our family have deep affiliation with the aussie animal! abah, syida and i are all ex-melbourne students. we've made holiday trips to melb, sydney and the gold coast - it just seemed like something all of us are attached to.

and it's cute. w o m b a t. say it. it's cute!

sigh. i'm excited beyond words.

me and the wombats

ok, budak-budak busuk, these are my plan for you guys. subject to change. with additional fun stuff and lotsa good food.

  • MAKAN, of course! all those postings on nasi mandi al-tawasol will be relatable to you guys after this because that's the first meal you guys are going to get once in dubai!
  • we'll take countless stroll at the walk, dubai marina - and visit its many cafes, coz this time it's easier for me to walk around with two babysitters in tow!
  • we'll visit the creek, and the bastakiya - so that you'll have an idea of how dubai was like back in the days
  • abg khairul would drive us to the atlantis - where we would have ice-cream at one of our favourite ice-cream stops - coldstone creamery - where its specialty lies on its staff's amazing ability to baling-baling ice-cream into the cup, very accurately!
  • you guys would wanna take a second visit to the burj al-arab, since our first trip with abah in 2004.
  • we'll go to the dubai global village where you'll feel like you've visited saudi, zimbabwe and nepal with all the wondrous of each country!
  • we'll hang out at the biggest malls in the world - the mall of emirates and dubai mall - each with its own specialties! MOE has the ski dubai, and the dubai mall has the biggest aquarium in the world! also, it's right next to the soon-to-be tallest building in the world!
  • saving the best for last - we'll lunch and munch at central perk cafe! woohoo, you crazy nutty f.r.i.e.n.d.s fan, you!
we eat and eat and eat lah. and jalan-jalan huha huha.

ok, where else do you wanna go?
what else do you wanna do?
what else do you wanna eat?
