Dubai Part 1: Warwick Hotel, Dubai
Dubai mall is the second largest shopping mall opening in retail history behind West Edmonton Mall. With about 1,200 shops trading inside the mall, although we spent time nearly 5 hours in there, still cannot cover the whole thing. So so enormous. Dubai Aquarium, Ice rink, Dubai Dinosour and an excess to Burj Khalifa, they are all here in one place. Plus Dubai fountain, which is set to light and music performances that is visible from every point on the lake promenade and some shops. Performances take place at 1:00pm and 1:30pm also every 30 minutes from 6pm to 10pm on weekdays, and from 6pm-11pm on weekends.
It was too hot waiting outside around the promenade, therefore we got in to one of the Japanese restaurant on the second floor. Nicely seated by the window waiting to watch the fountain while having some lunch too. We waited and waited, the water doesn't even make any movements, until we finished our lunch. By then it was nearly 2pm, the waitress then mention that in some occasion, they will actually cancel the fountain show. What a shame!!!!

If you are a sweet lover like me, you will definitely gone mad with all the sweets here. Plenty to choose from, European desserts like cakes, chocolate, ice creams or more toward middle east where they have petite sweets made from marzipan that beautifully handcrafted, dates that covered with chocolate and so on.
Most of the shops are stylish, elegant and quite luxury decorated. I really don't know where to begin honestly.
