Christmas at Hamleys at Dubai Mall!!

I wonder who has more fun at toy stores...Adults or kids. Wanna guess?
So Michael was so excited about the opening of Hamleys in Dubai and off we went on another adventure! It was so much fun.

Dubai Mall was decorated nicely with a huge Christmas tree and all sorts of glittery decorations. We also visited the aquarium which really turned out to be massive. The fish are so big, I have never seen anything like it before.

Formula One Power Boats Championship!

The crowd gathered up over the weekend, restless to watch the championship. The conditions were just perfect. The teams travelled from all over the world with their fancy high tech boats, ready for the challenge. You can even hear their engines reving up across the land! Fantastic...I wish my brother can see this, i am sure he would have loved it.

The Dubai Mall:

You really have to see it to believe it. This place is HUGE, I mean humongous! It is one of the largest malls ever containing 1200 stores, a giant aquarium and an ice rink! It is a city by itself. We have not been there yet but we are looking forward to check it out soon.

It received the Guiness Book Record for having the largest acrylic panel made yet.
The aquarium is a proper large size, containing a large variety of exotic fish and even a alrge turtle!

Creative Friend:

This is a great picture which a creative friend took a while ago and I would love to share it with you...

Happy Holidays:

Hello, we hope everything is peachy and lovely with you. We hope that 2008 has treated you as well as it did with us. So many life changing events happened this year. We hope that you are not so badly affected by the economy fall and we hope that you are in good health with good warm company this holiday.

Michael is successful & happy at work. His job is less stressful than the last one. He always comes home on time to play with Skye, give her a bath and read her a bedtime story. He even has time for the gym and he is still a non-smoker…Hooray!

Our flat in Dubai is still under construction. They ‘say’ it will be ready in January, let’s see. Actually, it was promised last April…

Myself, I am still not working; we decided that I would go back once Skye goes to school. Motherhood is fantastic and so much fun. Oh, and yes, full of surprises. I wake up everyday and wonder what will happen: a new tooth, a new laughter? And the list goes on. We got rid of her evening feeds long time ago. I thought I would never say this!
I am driving these days, it gives me my independence. I am braver on the roads now. I am also back on my windsurf which is a fantastic feeling being blasted by the wind and the wave spray! I am also updating my blog, not so often with a baby but it is alright.

As for Skye, she is enjoying every moment of the day. She is 9 months now and learning how to crawl. She has 4 teeth and loves to grin at everybody. She is a good eater and a healthy one too, hates jar food and loves daddy and mummy’s cooking: salmon with carrots, spaghetti bolognaise, braised beef…We go to a mother and baby group every week which she enjoys and she gets to interact with other babies. We also go to the beach almost everyday but we don’t swim if it is cold. We just play by running away from the waves which makes her giggle like crazy!

This is her first Christmas and Santa did not scare her like the rest of the kids. Instead, she was intrigued by his white beard. I am sure she is too young to understand fear. Hope it stays that way. Skye’s face lights up every time she sees a Christmas tree. She is such a character!

I guess that is all for now…But, we hope you spend a magnificent Christmas and a Happy New Year surrounded with family and friends. Cheers!
