We had a 1.30 reservation for lunch and we had to give our reservation number to the guard outside otherwise u will not be allowed to enter unless paying a fee of around 70 usd. We then proceed to take the lift to the 27th floor. The hotel staff were really friendly and so does the restaurant crew. They were all professionally trained and we had a very good service.
Our menu on that day consist of fish n chips for the kids, starter or scallop and lobster terrain, main course for hubby veal fillet with mushroom and barramundi fish topped with caviar for me and for dessert cappuccino and café latte with ice cream and chocolates. I have to admit the meal was good but the portion is small but hey..what do I expect? It is a fine dining restaurant after all..the westerner would have ordered a 6 to 9 course lunch but we..malaysian just ordered a 3 course lunch..hahaha.
Apart from the OTT Expensive price of the food we had a once in a lifetime experience. Hubby on the other hand had to fork out Aed 1300 or equivalent to RM1300. We were not at all shocked cos we knew even before making reservation that is the price u have to pay for wanting a treatment like the king and queen of Arabia..hahaha..
After much photography session we took a cab to Dubai Mall and meet with Mr Wahab from Pakistani who were kind enough to provide us with his villa while in London. We went back to the hotel at around 10 and ordered Chix Beriani for dinner. Well the lunch did not last us till breakfast the next day.hahahaha.

We went to 3 different shops and once I’m done the next item on the menu is ‘MAKAN’..food..food n more food. Alif thoroughly enjoyed his makan time too..i’ve never seen him so happy to get his food..hahaha..it’s a miracle!!! We were all so happy cos the beriani was superb!!! And yes I used to eat here too..our joint whenever we flew to dubai..the visitor restaurant is a must visit. Killer beriani and the juiciest mango juice ever!!!
After which like the malay proverb says ‘Gendang Gendut Tali Kecapi Kenyang Perut Suka Hati’. We left at around 11pm back to hotel.

We board our much awaited trip simply because we are traveling on board Emirates A380. and my jaw dropped upon seeing the super sized jumbo aircraft in front of our boarding gate..yup it was huge!! I was ecstatic n excited. It was my very first and hopefully not my last. During my flying days I wanted so much to travel on the Concorde and sadly that dream of mine..never happen!!! Hahaha..but anyway..god is always great..he gave me the chance to travel on one of these!! It’s amazing and ‘Alhamdulillah’
Once on board I had the much awaited movie marathon as Allysha slept throughout most of the journey and I get to watch 2 movies..which one??? What else if it’s not the Confession of a Shopaholic and Brides Wars..yeahhh..chick flicks!!!
Finally at 2.30 am we landed at Dubai International Airport, took a taxi to Oasis Court Hotel Apartment and went to bed half past 4!!..i dreamt of BERIANI, CHIX TIKKA, AND MANGO JUICE. Arrgghhh heaven on earth..hahaha.
