Without warning, it’s back.
We are having a bit of weather, no not rain, that usual sunny (hot) one again. Last Friday, I wanted to scream, “but it’s still February, dammit!” Temperatures rose to a maximum of around 30C on midday last weekend.
We went to Century and Irish Village for a brunch at one of the restaurants there. The open cafes looked inviting but a good sunscreen and sun glasses is a must. It was glaring hot that day:
~ Irish Village: a singer performing live outside ~
~ Century Village: traditional restaurants along cobbled stone pavement ~
Pristine loved the music so much she wouldn’t want to go home!
~ Pristine hiding away from the sun while enjoying the live performance ~
The midday sun is tolerable with a very cold beer:
~ Irish black beer overflowed at the Irish Village ~
Alcohol is not prohibited there as long as you are drinking within the premises and don’t drive home drunk.
The Irish Village at Garhoud is also just beneath the Dubai Tennis Stadium. The Dubai tennis open will be held on February 25- March 8 here. Next year, I’m going to sit on those bleachers and watch Maria Sharapova play!
~ do you see Maria over there? ~
~ and a couple more female tennis stars on the wall of fame ~
I am getting out of topic. *sigh*
This is what happens when you try to blog faster than your toothbrush time! Anyway, looks like summer is just around the corner here in desert land. Time to take out those umbrellas, sunscreen lotion and hand towels again!
