3R - Rest, Rejuvenate and Relaxing. The spa facilities are also superb! Love, love, love the rounded relaxing room with the infinity ceiling and hoping one day we could have the same room in our house.

Yas Hotel: The Wise Ones

We went to the Yas hotel last weekend. It was our first visit. We've been in the Yas Island once during the visit to the Ferrari World, but we didn't explore anywhere else. Here are some black & white photos inside the hotel and at the Al Ghazal Sculpture.

Kid Friendly Louis Vuitton

Wow! It's a nice kids playing room. Guess where is this.

Hint hint

Yes, this lovely room is inside the Louis Vuitton Mall of Emirates Dubai. There are 3 Nintendo Wii consoles in the room. I can leave my kids there and they love to stay in the boutique as long as possible. It's quite unusual. Haha!

The 1st professional picture above was taken from LaModa Dubai. Excerpt from LaModa Dubai:

"The Parisian luxury brand pays tribute to children as its fundamental and defining value by the opening of the first family room in a Louis Vuitton store and a special collaboration with Nadim Karam who will present The Travelling Elephant, an artwork created between the artist and a group of Dubai based international children, produced during a unique and emotional children’s art workshop at DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates. The art piece will be then donated for the benefit of START foundation in the Middle East."

Of Google+ and Pyramid Scheme

Have you been trying Google+ ? It's an exciting social media which is more reliable and secure than  Facebook. I just been using it for a week and love it so much especially when I can express more about my thought within my circle. 

We have discussed about pyramid scheme in Google+ and I thought I should share this one:

This is all very misleading and nothing more than a common pyramid scheme:

"A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants payment, services or ideals, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme or training them to take part, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public. Pyramid schemes are a form of fraud."

"A pyramid scheme is a form of fraud similar in some ways to a Ponzi scheme, relying as it does on a mistaken belief in a nonexistent financial reality, including the hope of an extremely high rate of return."

"Each joiner is required to buy an expensive but potentially worthless item, such as an e-book..."

The sad truth is that pyramid schemes is still a grey area in Malaysia, meaning that there is no clear law that defines it as a illegitimate business model. However, pyramid schemes are illegal in many countries including Albania, Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Iran, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Nepal, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

This is why schemes like this one blossom under the guise of a growing business. Those who have never picked up an MBA book will easily be tricked into joining this "business" with their "investment" pooled together with money from other "investors" flowing straight into a single bank account. And the price of a "product?" The term money laundering comes to mind. Oh and don't forget the term, "get rich quick."

If you want to start a business, it is far better to educate yourself. My personal favorite is "The Personal MBA" by Josh Kaufman:

You can buy his book or access the information you need for free on his website.

History might always repeat itself, but the wise and well informed know better.

I like this and I agree with him 100% .

Quran Majeed

I love Ramadhan in Abu Dhabi eventhough it's the hottest month of the year. The best part is DH office hour is until 2pm and we get to spend a lot of quality time together. Besides that, the shops will be close in the afternoon and will be open after iftar up to 2am-4am. Waktu malam sangat meriah. Another best thing is when you are going to the grocery shop you will see they are usually reciting Al-Quran while waiting for customer.

Talking about al-Quran, i would like to recommend this app. This is the best app that I've ever bought on my iPad. As you know it's not as thick as the conventional printed Al Quran, easy to refer and also to bookmark.

There's also a few different reciters for you to choose from.

And the best part you can choose the translation in BM for better understanding.

Have a blessed Ramadhan everyone.

Fauchon Paris

Last week we went to try the Fauchon Macarons. Some of the flavours are better from Laduree IMHO. They also have some special flavours just for Ramadhan, eg Dates Orange Blossom, Fig, etc. I love the ambiance and we sat there to open DH latest purchase.

Wordless Wednesday - Juicy Watermelon

Meal Planner

I think I haven't wrote about this. Since it's Ramadhan I think I should.

Remember this post about DH who achieve to score his Mac software (which he coded and I designed *coughing) into Top 10 in US Apps store? 

Well this Ramadhan, I am using this meal planner to plan what I have to cook for iftar. It's really ez pz. Tak payah pening2 kepala nak fikir menu apa nak masak, everything was planned ok? 

Every first of the week, DH will be the first to know what's cookin' for tonite for this week. Let say if he decides to change, I will just add and drop the meal or adjust it to another day. At 5.30pm, I will just execute the plan and cook in the kitchen based on the plan, tak payah nak tanya DH 2-3 kali hari ni dia nak makan apa.

From this meal planner also it will automatically generate the shopping list. So nak beli groceries pun senang sebab dah ada list siap2. 

Now I am in middle of designing a new software. I am hoping that we could find the time to finish up the new software in 2 months time. Wish us luck!

I Wish I Was The Moon

Oh Bill, Oh Eric, Oh Alcide...

Did you follow the latest episode of True Blood? I did! And for some reason I felt really bad for Bill...I know he is still in love with Sookie, but he let go of Eric so that he will be together with Sookie. Now I understand the meaning if you love someone you have to let go.

And the song in the last scene is so beautiful. I love this song and yes I first heard it on True Blood. I don’t know how artists are able to write and sing about the kind of things that’s in our hearts and very souls. They can make the most searing of pain beautiful, that’s just so amazing.

Fashion Giant Is In Dubai!

Last weekends we went around Dubai Mall and found this unique window display in Bloomingdales.
Very creative kan?
Reminded me to Gulliver's Travel.

Then we went to watch Harry Potter.

and also as I mentioned in the previous entry,
We went to eat at the Red Lobster (again)
This time I tried the Lobster bisque for starter

DH ordered the same menu as last week bcoz he was wondering how to eat the crab?

But #hantuketam like me really donch care
I ordered the crab legs and lobsta!

Luckily they gave me this to speed up the eating process but still DH had to wait for me to finish up the foods for half an hour.
Nasib baik dia jenis yang patient. 

And another picture of ketam, which was for iftar yesterday.
And of course ketam masak lemak lagi fulfilling. =)
