sixsenseszighybaySix Senses Zighy Bay got really popular this year. Last month, I had a chance to stay in Six Senses Zighy Bay resort for short period. I done my reservations through Six Senses reservation department. To reach Zighy Bay, I booked a transportation service from Six Senses, that took me from Dubai Int. Airport. It is a long 2hrs drive from Dubai to Oman border reaching Six Senses Zighy Bay. But that really worth it.

I was welcomed from the reception, checked-in and walked down to my lovely villa. Six Senses Zighy Bay offers different types of villas, but what I booked is a private swimming pool villa with sea view.

The place is really fabulous. As well as their services, I loved the way they help us with our wants. On the second day, I waked up with flu and called them for assistant. They cooperated with me till I felt well.

At the end, I loved this place and I wish I could stay more than three days. I am planning to be there in mid of March next year.

DubaiSafariWeeks ago, I was in Dubai for a vacation. I had an amazing experience in Dubai Safari Desert. Around 3pm, one of the safari drivers picked us from our hotel and drove us down to South Dubai towards the desert. I haven’t experience this before, but it was amazing. It is a safe 30 minutes safari ride. I actually enjoyed the ride, but at the end I felt bit dizzy and buzzy. Which is normal, but I sat down for 10 minutes and drinking cold water to get back normal.

Information are all included in Dubai Desert Safari [website].

Apple introduced last week iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. With iPhone 6 is larger and yet dramatically thinner. More powerful, but remarkably power efficient. With a smooth metal surface that seamlessly meets the new Retina HD display. With iPhone 6 all made devices are made with beautiful anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and glass. It’s a thousand tiny details that add up to something big. Or in this case, two big things: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The first thing you notice when you hold iPhone 6 is how great it feels in your hand. The cover glass curves down around the sides to meet the anodized aluminum enclosure in a remarkable, simplified design. There are no distinct edges. No gaps. Just a smooth, seamless bond of metal and glass that feels like one continuous surface.

Every day, people take more photos with iPhone than with any other camera. That’s because the iSight camera makes it so remarkably easy. Now, in addition to its large 1.5-micron pixels and ƒ/2.2 aperture, the world’s most popular camera is packed with new technologies to help everyone take more great photos.

To make it just as easy to shoot amazing video, we added new features like the option to capture 1080p HD at 60 fps, 240-fps slo-mo, and time-lapse video. And you can shoot HD video and then watch the stunning results on the large Retina HD display.

It takes innovative technology to make a great camera even better. That’s why we added features to the 8MP iSight camera like a new sensor with Focus Pixels, improved face detection, and exposure control. So you can take the photo and let iPhone 6 do the rest.
Apple Pay will change how you pay with breakthrough contactless payment technology and unique security features built right into the devices you have with you every day. So you can use your iPhone 6 to pay in an easy, secure, and private way. This feature is coming up in October.
They are available now in Apple Stores starting from $199. More information and sources visit Apple’s Website.

Ribs & Rumps New Menu

Ribs&RumpsKuwaitRibs & Rumps opened a year ago in Kuwait. Last week, I received an invitation to taste the new menu of Ribs & Rumps. I ordered mix appetisers, ribs, ribs burger and shrimp pasta. The food was some how tasty, but I don’t feel it is over tasty except the ribs burger. However, the pasta shrimp was also not that delicious, I feel they need to work more on the sauce, condiment and ingredients.

The restaurant atmosphere is expectable and I can say the menu need to be much better. I rate Ribs & Rumps food 06/10

Instagram officially launched Hyperlapse Application to Apple’s App Store. With Hyperlapse you can create amazing time lapse videos by using Instagram’s in-house stabilisation.

Hyperlapse shoots polished time lapse videos that were previously impossible without bulky tripods and expensive equipment. As well, you can shoot handheld time lapse videos in motion, while you’re walking, running, jumping or falling.

After you’re done with recording your time-lapse you can share your videos seamlessly on Instagram and Facebook or save them to your camera roll to share anywhere.

I extremely liked the application features which ables me to record my time-lapse video easily and simply without any settings.

FairmontThePalmHotelFairmont The Palm Hotel & Resort is one of my best hotels in Dubai. If you are going for swimming and chilling next to the beach. I recommend you to stay at Fairmont The Palm Hotel.

DubaiPalmBeachDuring my recent Summer Vacation I booked my room at Fairmont The Palm Hotel & Resort. What I liked from this hotel are hospitality services, location, beach, swimming pool, beach view, lobby, hotel atmosphere, rooms and the royal services.

However, their are things I disliked such as the WiFi Internet Services should be FREE and not paid service. As well, they should add extra services for families, children and businessmen.

FalafelBurgerIn the first night, I sat in the hotel lobby and saw their dinner menu. So I chose this FalaFel Burger it was really delicious and tasty. I really loved their food, meals and buffet.

Finally, Fairmont The Palm Hotel & Resort will be your best choice if you are going for the beach, swimming or family trip.
