After all the boring rantings. Of course, something interest, something anyone should do after coming to the desert country, Desert Safari - Dune Bashing!
And now, something HoT, checking out the World Largest Mall cum World Tallest Building. The Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifah!

Easy, take the metro, and just head to Dubai Mall Station, it is all connected, indoors! The metro fares are very cheap, say from Dubai Marina Station to Dubai Mall Station will cost you less than 10 Dirhams, return.
What i like about Dubai Mall
|Large Indoor Aquarium|
I love fishes. I always have fresh water fish at home, although they dont survive, feeling guilty*. However, i have made many research in order to give them a good home, i have two pearl gold fish before i came to Dubai, now under the care of my parents. God Bless...

Walking with Dino
Thinking that's all you get? That's not all, one more big highlights, the World Largest Musical Fountain. Beautiful! It plays every 30min starting after 6pm. The musical is always different within the same day. Believe it or not, it can shoot water up as high as a 50-storey building. Throughout my travel to different countries, this is the best.
