Abu Dhabi : Impresi Pertama....

After sleeping off our jet lag a bit, we enjoyed a tasty dinner at Hilton Baynunah Hotel (self-cook..maggi mee!!yeay!!). Our adventure took us to Marina Mall, which is where I got my first impressions of Abu Dhabi. Based on what I’ve been told, checking out a mall seems like a logical first day in Abu Dhabi, so we spent our day at Ikea, Carrefour (kind of like a Super Wal Mart) and checking out the mall.
A few observations:


Generally, it feels like the entire city is under construction as you see tons of cranes everywhere. In fact, our hotel (Hilton Baynunah) faces a giant construction pit, as well as the shells of 8-10 building in various stages of completion. This is of course a ton of fun when you’re woken up at 7am by construction noise.
So far, so good in Abu Dhabi.

6 Hours Flight Complete

Our flight begin from KLIA to Changi Airport Singapore. It takes only an hour flight to arrive. Unfortunately, we have to transit to Changi first prior to continue our journey to Abu Dhabi.



This is my first time flying economy class more than 3 hours (mostly 2-3 hrs flight only to Sabah, Sarawak n Indonesia).



Arriving in Abu Dhabi after the long flight was a bit of a blur, but one thing you definitely notice is the heat as soon as you step outside the terminal for the first time, it just feels like stepping into a sauna. After a small bit of confusion with the driver (since there are no addresses here you basically have to go to the nearest landmark and figure it out) we found our place to stay (Hilton Baynunah) where we’ll be for the next couple of weeks. A pretty nice place for temporary digs. Now if only we could get the internet working…I'll update soon...

Off to Abu Dhabi

I'm on my way to Abu Dhabi tommorow for a month, but it might take a few days to get settled in and start blogging and online on a regular basis. In the meantime, feel free to email me to ask any questions you have about the UAE and I’ll do my best to find answers. I'll share my experience and journey here with you guys later. So, anyone going Abu Dhabi as well, leave your message k, perhaps we can hang out and go sight-seeing together..or anyone who planning to go there (accomodation no problem, you can stay with me...hehehe)

In the meantime, here are other ways to stay in touch:

Eid Mubarak 1431H (Pt1)

Ramadhan berlalu, Syawal menjelma. Tibalah masa umat Islam seluruh dunia merayakan Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Bila tiba hari raya, semua orang akan bergembira. Yang paling gembira budak-budak la..sebab time raya ni nak kumpul duit raya..Bagi yang dah berumur, Hari Raya Aidilfitri digunakan sebagai platform untuk bermaaf-maafan dan menziarahi sanak-saudara serta rakan taulan. Tahun ni aku beraya kat Kangar, Perlis. Raya kat mana2 pun kat Malaysia ni sama je aku rasa..sama meriah, sama berwarna-warni...
