Friday Brunch Hunt - Fusion @ Ghaya Grand Hotel

Food Counter

Craving for some delicious buffet. Looking forward for our favourite friday brunch buffets. This time we decided to try Fusion as it is close to home. So why not. The friday brunch here cost AED125 per person as is considered on a budget side compared to other hotels. Usually around AED200-AED400 per person. Further includes all kind of drinks(except alcohol), well served especially cocktail and hot beverages.

Enjoying our Friday Brunch

The restaurant have an interesting concept with 5 live station. With asian noodles, indian tandoori, japanese sushi, chinese dim sum and italian pasta/pizza. So provides plenty of freshly cooked food for you to try. Only down side is the lack of variety. However, staff are very friendly. A plus point.

Yum. Naan with kebab.

Location : Fusion, Ghaya Grand Hotel
           IMPZ, Dubai

Time     : 12.30pm to 3.30pm (Friday Brunch)
           6.00pm - 11.00pm (Dinner)
Cuisine  : International

Rating   : 3.5/5.0
Critics  : Buffet Service was very poor. "Expensive" dishes are usually empty and take ages to get refilled. Not sure if it is on purpose or just bad service. Sashimi always gone missing.


Will i be back? Maybe.

The Green Planet - DXB

The City Walk

Adjacent to City Walk, i have noticed a very strange building. Definitely stands out from the rest. Unique. Wondering what it was... checked... and it is called The Green Planet. :D Something new to do.

The Green Planet

Very curious what they had inside. Did a little research on the net and definitely getting loads of information. A Green Planet. A Rainforest's. Nature at its best. Can't really imagine how they have a unique beauty of another world in there. So we decided that this weekend was the time we pay it a visit.



Arrived in City Walk, while heading to The Green Planet we noticed this game store with our favourite Marvel Supper Hero, The Iron Man. Just gotta stop and take a pic. Respect.


The Green Planet
AED95 for adults and AED70 for children 3 – 12 years.

Opening Hours

Open Sat - Wed 10am - 10pm
Open Thurs & Fri 10am - Midnight

The Mother Tree

Just entering. Was like "wow". Huge constructed tree structure which carries and support the wooden bridges and walk paths on top. The Canopy. Like a huge green house. A rainforest's where trees, plants and animals are everywhere. Also known as the world's largest indoor man-made and life-sustaining tree.


Heading Up the Canopy

Good thing they have a lift that brings you up all the way to the top. So you could explore the rainforest's while heading down level by level slowly.

Canopy

Really a interesting bio-dome. Everything was well structured and designed. There are many staff which are very friendly and very professional. They will explain to you everything you need to know about the rainforest's, flowers, insects, animals, birds and etc.


The Rainforest's Creatures

Every level we explored. There are different things to see and do. Unique bird species are everywhere flying freely, uncage. Insects and reptiles are definitely caged. Fortunately.

Feeling Good

Enjoying ourselves. The Green Planet was definitely astonishing and we had not expected it.

Cockroach!!

We are discriminating. We don't touch our home cockroach but we touch the ones that looks much good looking. The Madagascar Hissing Cockroach.

I Luv DXB

Had a great time discovering the wonders of the tropical forest, designed as an enclosed ecosystem. Fascinating flora and fauna. Go see it!

UAE LIFE

Living almost three years in the UAE. Time flies. Throughout my time here definitely many things have happened. In such short span living in Dubai, trying to tick as much items in my checklist as possible, making use of time here. 

Like learning how to make "Siu Yok" Kidding but that's true. Working global was definitely part of the top list. Had my dream food the "beef wellington" (slightly disappointed though, feels like beef pastry). Finally visiting Abu Dhabi. Always wondering how Abu Dhabi was, as we usually make the "airport transfer" here while we are on flight to the United Kingdom and Europe. Finally got the MAC Book. Wow thing, able to watch the world tallest tower fireworks display during NYE. Finally gotten my first video recorder the GoPro (definitely a waste under my use). Got my first own car (second hand though, budget lah). Visiting the deserts! Having my big travel to Japan, United Kingdom and Iceland. Learning how to cut my own hair! Been doing so! Learn snowboarding! Biggest ever achieving this three years, my marriage proposal! And of course, our Registration Of Marriage =)

Year 2013

If you remembered correctly i was in Dubai in year 2013. Now it was like 2016!! Look how time flies! Just by comparing the top and bottom picture!!

Year 2016

My project is coming to an end. Erm.. more like finally completed! Beautiful 5 star hotel by the elegant beachfront of the Palm Jumeirah.

Overlooking the beautiful Palm Jumeirah
Overlooking the beautiful skyscrapers of the Dubai Marina

You can see the few tall towers, that's the world tallest apartments at Dubai Marina.

Okay, i am so gonna buy this VILLA! ermm...AED35Mil?
The World Largest Glass Cube

Have you seen the Apple Glass Cube in the United States? Now you get the world largest glass cube here in a hotel.

Staying Home, Having Prax's Delicious Takeaway Boxes

Feeling the desperate need of seating on the comfy sofa. Holding and eating some delicious comfort food while catching up with some entertaining English and Hong Kong series. The Flash. The Green Arrow. The Walking Dead. Come Home Love Home. Etc. Well definitely Prax's is a good idea.

Prax's Open Kitchen Concept

One of the high rating takeaway boxes restaurant in Dubai. Probably one of the best Chinese food when comes to reasonable price. They do have few selection of starters, salads and main courses. And their signature "go freestyle" by simply putting together your own unique combo. Selecting  your base such as egg noodles, jasmine rice, soba noodles or etc. Choosing your protein type such as pawns, chicken and etc. Next sauce of black pepper, red curry, chill basil and etc. Lastly toppings (3picks) such as cabbage, mushroom, broccoli, red onion, corn, bak choy and etc. Simply mix all together and placed in the takeaway boxes!

Time to Chow!
Four Boxes for Two Please! LOL!

We had the Sweet and Sour Prawn (AED38), Red Curry Beef (AED38), Green Curry Chicken (AED32) and our own mix for Green Curry Chicken (AED32). Depending what you pick the prices will varies. Love their curries, very tasty and not spicy. Probably a little spicy will be much better and more flavourful.


Location : Prax's
           Jumeirah Beach Road, Near Marcatto Mall,

Critics  : Poor seatings and interiors, more like a takeaway concept. Lovely food however, lack variety, perhaps something you would get bored quickly.
