Mall of the Emirates

I reached Dubai today for meetings with our software vendors. They’re located in Media City. We went and checked in at Hotel Radisson Blu at Media City.

It’s also pretty hot in Dubai. I went down to Icon Bar for some beer.

But the bar wasn’t serving alcohol as it’s Ramadan time.

They said that alcohol is served during Ramadan after 8.00 pm. Anyway, I sat down there and had a cup of black coffee.

To pass the evening time, I took a cab and went to Mall of the Emirates. The mall was opened in 2005. On November 2005, it was named the World’s Leading New Shopping Mall at the World Travel Awards in London.

The mall also hosts Ski Dubai — the Middle East’s first indoor ski resort and snow park.

I was just enjoying window shopping and walking with people around. Then went to an Italian restaurant — Emporio Armani Caffe and ordered for fried shrimps with calamari along with cappuccino. Fried shrimps and calamari were very delicious.

I returned hotel after having an ice-cream from Baskin-Robbins.
