This is my first time to write a "Blog" and I feel like to write this to release the stress I have right now. Actually we just arrive and we are back in home sweet home.. Just this morning we woke up aroung 7:30 AM and decided to go to the beach here in our place in Sharjah..It was my wife idea to bring our son to the beach but for me it was not a good idea since I am lazy to wake up early in the weekend and drive to the beach.. for me, it is a waste of time that it is my time stay long on the bed sleeping and waking up late. After a long weekday, waking up 5:45 AM. but today, it change my mind for the sake of our son because he is having cough and a runny nose. Going to the beach this time will help me a cure for his illness. So, there I am, waking up early and driving all the way to the beach.
When we arrive in the beach, there were already some people enjoying the sun swimming in the beach. I aprk the car and bring the
mat and the umbrella. I and my son, went to the water to soak and swim. But sad to say, my son does no like the beach. I don't know why, coz during my days, at his age I was really like to soak to the water. But I remember that his mother has the same attitude. From the mat where we put also the umbrella, we change and both of us (my son) went to the beach to soak. My wife stay as she doe not want to soak or get wet.. (see i told 'ya, my son got that attitude from her...) As we both go on, our son is telling that "I don't like beach, Papa.."
Poor young fellow nothing to do but to follow his father. Still he keeps on saying the same words but I don't mind him as I know this will be for his own good.
And then, here we are on in the water and he was now crying.."Papa, I don't like beach"..
He is still crying but then again, he can't do anything to stop me in soaking hin in the water. He was the only kid who is crying
in the water. I soak him and he was still crying and making it louder.. So, I decided that we will go back, anyway we soak our body and for maybe 15 minutes we there..tsk tsk tsk... I feel that I hurt my son. That if only he can punch me right through my face, he will do it. My heart sank as if I am guilty.
I send him back to his mother and I go back to the water and swim for another 15 minutes on my own then I told them that we should go home as both of us will be going to our offices.
We got home and I and our son took shower while my wife prepares our breakfast.
Sorry but there was no picture that I took. :(
While in our car driving to our offices, I told my wife, what if we go to Mall of Emirates bringing our son giving him a treat and to give him a break (after all staying inside the flat during weekdays making him like a prisoner) and that will help him ease the illness that he feels. So, to make the
story short we agree and we went there.
THIS IS THE START OF THE MALL OF EMIRATES EXPERIENCE.
We left the the house at 2:15 PM as we are going to pick up our friend Ariel.
When we arrive at the Mall of Emirates, we decidedd that me and our son will be trying the "Ski Dubai" for a new experience. While our friend and my wife decided to have a window shopping.
As we are going inside the place, my son again said, "Papa, I don't like snow"..
again and again he is saying these words. The only word that change compare earlier was the "beach".
But then, I can't say "NO" since we have already paid AED 150.00 for our fee. for one thing, I really wanted to experience this as I am in my 7 years in U.A.E., just now I have experience the "Ski Dubai" and shall I say the "snow". Not just snow but snow in the desert. From where in the world you can find a snow in the desert??? Yes, there is snow in the desert and you can find it in Dubai in
Mall of Emirates particularly. It may not be as a natural as what nature brings in European countries or in North pole but the coldness was very cold. I am not a type of person whom can be affected by coldness of the weather but today I did. Due to our technology today, it seems there are no impossible things right now. The snow was due to the chiller or cooler that makes the place cold as if you are really in the places where there are snows. We saw penguins also inside. There are people who do skiing, riding in the cable, riding in the zorb ball, snowboarding, kids riding in the sleds, etc.. We are in the winter wonderland but my son did not enjoy. The only time he enjoyed was when he saw the penguin slide and swim.
After that, I let my son's wish to get out in the place as I feel that I am the only one enjoying. We left the place, change our clothes and I called my wife that we are done. She asked "why?" and I told her that this young fellow is not enjoying and she just laugh and
said our AED 150.00 is finished. :)
We waited for both my wife and our friend.
While waiting for them, we saw a two little girl with their nanny. My son booze up some energy as I caught him playing with these girls. So, I feel good as he is now back in action. There he is running around chasing the girls here and there. My wife arrive and she saw us and happily greeted us. Seeing our son playing with these little girls. These girls are also waiting for their Mom. Good thing these girls are nice to be with as they are not the same with other kids who are not willing to play.
Finally the Mom arrive and we have to say bye as they are heading somewhere in the mall.
Also, we are hungry and we look for a restau who serves pasta as we are craving for pasta to eat. We saw the place name "Paul" but it was crowded. So, we deceided to find some other place within the mall and we found the "Bielle" a fine dining italian restau. We ordered for a pizza, alfredo pasta and a drink
While we are waiting for our order, bread was serve. Bread has an ingredient of olives but the taste is good. It was serve as sliced and the texture just like muffin. Finally, our orders serve and the pizza taste is also good and same with alfredo pasta. By the way the pizza flavor was "Polo el funghi" hope I wrote it right. For me the drink - mojito was not enough for me. I mean compare to other restaus which I've been they serve is more compare to this one.
At 5:55 PM we decided to leave the mall. And at almost 8:10 PM we arrive in our place.
Thanks God for a safe journey for the day. This experience is another tiring experience but different one.
