A lot of things have happened at Media One hotel. DEK on 8 is now Coco (read my blog post about Coco here), and the former Crab Tavern has turned into a kitschy-cool Asian restaurant/bar, Mr. Miyagi’s, which was where we decided to go and celebrate Pia’s birthday. On Saturdays, the Lady’s Boy Night deal is 99 AED for 3 courses and all-you-can-drink for 2 hours. I don’t think it comes any better in Dubai. Well, maybe they’ve changed the deal after we been there, because we could drink a lot:)
Courtney from A to Za’atar was invited to come by Carine at Emirates Golf Club and check out their new lunch menu, and she asked me, if I wanted to come along? Of course I would, because 1: Courtney has been on my Bloggers I Would Like To Meet IRL list for a very long time and 2: I’ve finally decided to sign up for golf lessons (yes! More on that in another post). And let’s not forget 3: My previous experiences with golf club dining have been nice but also very predictable, so I was curious to see how Carine had decided to do things.
Wednesday, I was invited to the HTC Vive Pro launch. The event was held at the 112th floor in Burj Khalifa, so the new VR gadgets were competing with the marvelous view over the city for the visitors’ attention. Around sunset, the view won, and most people gathered outside on the open terrace to take photos, but before that, HTC Vive managed to showcase what’s going on at the VR forefront.
Last Friday, the K-Pop crème de la crème all came together in Dubai as part of the 6th SM Town world tour. Korean music is very popular down here, especially among the young generation, and it was fun to see how Dubai teenagers of all nationalities had found their way to the concert. Trine and I had media Fan Pit passes, so we were right in front of the stage along with the most dedicated K-Pop fans.
About a year ago I discovered this amazing breakfast deal at The Scene in Pier 7, and since then, I’ve become a regular. For 35AED you get breakfast with coffee and tea, and if you’re seated at one of the tables outside, you get a magnificent view of Dubai Marina, rising and shining, at no extra charge:)
The other day, I was invited to come by Blaze Burgers and try their new Vegetarian Theme. I’m not a vegetarian, but I’m trying to cut down on meat during the week, and if there’s a good vegetarian option on the menu, I would usually go for that one.
Dongdaemun is the big night market in Seoul. This is where the clothes boutiques in the city go and shop for supplies, but even though some of the malls are strictly wholesale, there are plenty of opportunities for retail customers like you and me to go shopaholic crazy too.
Around Easter, the kids in Denmark make letters with rhymes and riddles, so-called “gækkebreve”. A snowdrop is attached before the gækkebrev is sent to families and friends anonymously. Instead of your name, you just put dots, corresponding to the number of letters in your name.
