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.

RealMadridCafeDubaiI done different exciting activities during my recent visit Summer Vacation in Dubai. One night I went for a walk to Dubai JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence). I saw different new restaurants and stores opened in JBR. Real Madrid Cafe Dubai is one of the cafes impressed me. 

RealMadridDubaiThe cafe got a mini Real Madrid store were you can find the team uniform, accessories and items. As well you can take your own photo, plus watch the photo gallery and get more details about the team. The first floor of the cafe got huge sitting area to eat, drink coffee or have some desserts. I loved the store and cafe idea, which I recommend for Real Madrid fans to have a look one day.

KuwaitiKidEid AlFitr is over now. I really haven’t enjoyed this Eid, especially most of our family members and friends escaped to start their vacation early this time. However, Eid AlFitr is were all muslims gather up after ramadan. Kids enjoyed Eid AlFitr the most, by earning the most “Eidiya” to buy what they need.

Last week I watched Blended Movie at Grand Cinema – AlHamra Tower. I saw the trailer video on YouTube before I booked my seat. Blended is a 2014 American romantic comedy film directed by Frank Coraci and written by Ivan Menchel and Clare Sera.

The movie is about an a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.

I liked the story, but as you know the regulations in Kuwait. Almost half of the movie is cropped and you can find it difficult to match the scenes and story together.
