it’s always nice when families come over. we can make them take care of the boys while mr. khairul and I go on our rare date nights and movies! haha.
my sister-in-law was here a couple of moons back. she was back in malaysia for a short break in feb and stopped by dubai on her way back to cairo (she is studying dentistry there). her *ehem* other half syafawi also tagged along from cairo for his first-time experiencing dubai.
abang long and adik kecik. both bike-enthusiasts.

where did we take them?
my sis-in-law teh was practically dubai-an haha having been to dubai every year, since our first year here – she was here for 2 months during the arab spring in egypt – so, very seasoned already lah! but this was pawi’s first time in dubai, so it was all about taking him sight-seeing around dubai, since he was very helpful when mr. khairul was in cairo for an exhibition last time.
took them makan-makan and the usually tourist spots – palm jumeirah, atlantis, burj arab bla bla bla.

we took them makan-makan at our new favorite eating haunt – afghan khorasan kebab with the most delicious arab bread ever! (click here for my review of ‘afghan khorasan restaurant’) and who’s that in pink tudung? I’ll save that for another posting ya!
..and we went to dubai global village – an annual event not to be missed when you’re in dubai during winter!

…and of course, while she’s here, hanging out with big brother on his harley is a must! one day she wants to own a superbike herself!
