Isn’t it almost Christmas again? Yesterday I started talking about my Christmas trip for the last three years. In the last issue, we talked about Morocco (if you are interested, you can read the previous one). I have never heard of it, but when it comes to Dubai, almost everyone knows it. Let me talk about the relationship between the two. The UAE is the full name of the country, the United Arab Emirates. It consists of seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Umm al-Qaewan and Ras Al Khaimah). The composition of the country is very special. It is neither a federal system nor a republic nor a constitutional monarchy. They are independent except for military and diplomacy, so some thieves are rich and poor. I have been to these seven emirates, because there is no need to go through the interoperability and the other emirates except the boss Abu Dhabi and the second Dubai are too small and very backward and barren, and can run all over the country in a day, even the third largest country. Kari contains Ajman, and Ajman is connected to Umm Gai, hahaha! And 47% of the entire UAE is desert... One can imagine how much effort and money they have put in to become a world-renowned tyrant. Last year, 2019, seemed to be the most frequent year for me to come to the UAE. I came here three times throughout December, both for personal reasons and work reasons. Last Christmas I planned to go to Israel again, because I had a Sabbath and a Rosh Hashanah in Jerusalem before. The religious atmosphere shocked my soul. Do you think the stables where Jesus was born? Cave) The Nativity Church in Bethlehem, Palestine, and the sights I usually go to are all moving, so Christmas must be particularly spectacular! But in December, I suddenly received an invitation from the Dubai Tourism Bureau to participate in the first Dubai Christmas Desert Carnival, so my original plan was stranded and returned to Dubai! On Christmas Eve on the 24th, I was invited to stay at the Summer Palace of the Jumeirah Castle Hotel (now translated as Jumeirah, called Jumeirah is the private business of the chief of Dubai. For example, the Burj Al Arab hotel that we are most familiar with, the real name is Jumeirah Arabian Taberz Hotel), I used to stay at the Yi Palace on the small wooden boat wharf (I spend my own money and live at a cheaper price, haha) and the top room types are in the He Palace and Summer Palace, this time I don’t spend myself Money is so happy (the house price of Summer Palace will be over ten thousand a night)! The tourism bureau of the local tyrants is not short of money! The Christmas decoration here is different from the red and green style of European countries, but the solemn Christmas tree green and the Arabian gold of the local tyrants, which look atmospheric and not exaggerated! What I am most interested in is eating. There should be 70 or 80 restaurants of various sizes in the Castle Hotel, but my favorite is the buffet restaurant at Yigong. The environment is so good that you can just open the glass door and go out. I can see the Burj Al Arab Hotel, there are turtles cruising in the artificial canal below, but mainly because there is a Hong Kong chef who specializes in Cantonese and Southeast Asian dishes, which suits my taste, hahaha! This time I entered the restaurant and held a fancy cake show to celebrate Christmas. It was very interesting and added to the festive atmosphere!
Pad siew - the worst attempt at Thai food15 mins wait for food at mall of the Emirates. Did not taste anything like the dish should! Staff appear to be very disinterested
The environment of this restaurant is very good. I like the free shrimp crackers. The green papaya salad is not delicious, but the others are okay. The biggest highlight may be the singing and dancing show. It feels like I have come to Thailand.
There are many excellent restaurants in Madinat. There are two Asian cuisines, and the other Asian cuisine is not complaining. PaiThai is still a representative with stable production, covering dishes, and comfortable environment. Especially the brunch on Friday, you can eat the entire menu at once. There are three kinds of packages, soft drinks, normal alcohol, and champagne as usual. This brunch is self-ordering, and the waiter will ask if there is anything you really want to eat, otherwise the recommended appetizer, main course and last dessert will be served directly. You can order anything you like in the middle. Personally, I like fried shrimp, green curry, and "ruby" dessert (coconut milk and tapioca flour wrapped horseshoe). From the hotel to the restaurant, you can walk, take a golf cart, or take an Abra boat to cruise the river to see the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The only disadvantage is that flies are easy to catch outdoors. Overall it is well received, you can go again.
The restaurant mixed with our Chinese taste surprised us very much. Must be satisfied and praised
