Omigosh!!!!!!!! You will NOT believe what just happened….. Not in a ZILLION years.So I’ve decided to let you in on it. Guess what?? Mum has committed a HUGE error. We are not taking off tomorrow… We are leaving TODAY!!!!!!!! I mean, not today, today, but practically today, because we realised that our flight is taking off on the 28th April…at
midnight!!!!! I mean, our flight departs at 12:05 tomorrow, but, come on!!! We have to be at the airport today, right?? I was so looking forward to spending a whole day relaxing at Sabu’s place, but, sadly, that is not to be.
And, get this! Just because we are departing tonight (or, to be more precise, tomorrow morning) my trip with Andrea (one of Sabu’s nieces) to the House-Of-Horrors is officially cancelled!!! N And Iwas SO looking forward to it. Andrea (who has been there before) says that they narrate a story the beginning and then they put you in a scene where it feels like you are IN the story!!! How cool is that????
Too bad I’ll NEVER be able to enter. 😦
Sabu cooking our (probably) last meal in Dubai…
So today, we went to the Dubai Dolphinarium, with the intention of nabbing four tickets to the eleven o’clock dolphin-and-seal show. But, as my sister woke up at ten thirty, that plan didn’t exactly happen. So, as we were already there, we booked coupons for the three fifteen show instead. Our next strategic plan was to stroll around the park and then attend the show which was going to take place in the next couple of hours.
That was the plan, anyway. What actually happened is a whole different story.
We discovered the MIRROR MAZE which just opened, and so my sis and I paid the admission fee and went inside. But it was quite (I wouldn’t say scary) confusing. Not that confusing, though. I mean, we ended up leading a bunch of Japanese girl to the exit and then searching for the entrance again. Just for the heck of it, you know??? Anyway, after the maze, we (sis and I) watched a five minute 5D movie, Dead House, which really spooked me. A lot. So much so, that I couldn’t look into another the cupboard the res of the day. Honest.
After the film, we crunched up three tubs if popcorn and then decided to go outside for some fresh air before the show.
I was rambling around the gardens when I spotted a pair of swings. I asked mom whether I could “play” (or whatever) for some time and she was like, yeah, sure. So I went that and hung around for about an hour. After sixty minutes, I started trotting back to the picnic spot my mum and Sabu chose to rest on, but they WERE NOT THERE!!!!!!!
I didn’t freak out or anything, but I went to a nearby shopkeeper and asked him for the way to the Dolphinarium. He directed me to it, and so I wentthere, thinking they (mum, Sabu and sis) would eventually come there and then chance upon me, as (duh) they would come there at three for the dolphin show.
So I entered the Dolphinarium’s lounge and promptly dozed off. I woke up with a start as the weird guy in the shark costume began approaching me. Dodging startled people, I dashed outside, only to see mom.
Apparently, mum, Sabu and sis had begun panicking when they noticed my absence and quickly set off to search for me. Mum said that we had twenty minutes for the show to begin, but she was starving, so we grabbed a quick bite and then head off for the show. I have two words for the dolphins and seals. FAN-TASTIC!!!!!!
Now I am at Sabu’s place, and mum and she are trying to choose something for us to do tonight. tomorrow we are going to the cinema…… so THAT’S settled, then!!!!!!
I can’t believe that day aft tomorrow, at this exact same time, I will be getting ready to leave for the airport. When I reach the airport, I will be packed in a jet with three dozen other people (like sardines in a can) and parcelled all the way to… To INDIA!!!!!!!!
I feel like sobbing my face off. I mean, I am missing home and stuff, but COME ON!!!!!!! I mean, I’m going to crave for Dubai every night before I am tucked into bed with my teddy bear. But, you know what?? It isn’t a lose-lose situation. Because I will FINALLY be resuming my karate after a whole month. Yeah, baby!!!!
Three days. The days left for me to depart from this beautiful place, Dubai. I kind of feel, right now at least, that I have the best of both world at this kind of situation, because I have my karate to look forward to upon reaching home, and I really miss my family and my home.
Plus, I have come to a conclusion. (Which is rather irrelevant at the moment, come to think about it) Dork Diaries, the series of books about unpopular teen Nikki Maxwell, is just a cross between Wimpy kid and the Princess diaries series. It doesn’t even have a very nice back story. I mean, the whole book is really predictable. But, whatever. That’s just my opinion.
I was introduced to Dork Diaries by Shanelle, my mom’s friend’s elder daughter. Shanelle gifted me the first two Dork diary books. 🙂
Shanelle’s younger sis, Serena, is too cute for words. Seriously.The whole time we were at their place, (w went there day before) we played on the wii and just hung out. Oops, mom is bellowing for me. More later.
Today we explored the whole of IKEA again (though I was browsing the book store while my mum and sis were at IKEA). We also want to City Central, a nearby mall. At CC we shopped for clothes and grabbed a quick bite from the superstore at the mall.
To get back home, we caught the metro for the second time this week. That’s about it, actually. but I’m really feeling sorry for myself because there are only five days left. Time flew!!!! But I guess five days is a lot, isn’t it??
Mum says that we’ll be coming back for many a holidays again now that we know about what a “beautiful place Dubai is.” That’s cool!!
Sabu, mum and Tikka relaxing after a hectic day of fantastic surprises!!!!!
This is the LARGEST garden on earth. Take a look!!!
As my mom is in the shower right now (and not using our iPad mini) I have decided to grab te opportunity to display some of the photos my mum and I has captured of our trip so far. Flip through and ENJOY!!!!!!
