I’m officially joining the bandwagon. I’m joining the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge starting this week.

This week’s theme is INDULGE. I couldn’t help but think about food when I hear this word. So here goes my post –

One of my parents’ favorite Chinese restaurant in the Philippines is CHOWKING. It has branches around the world, and so they were glad to find one inside Dragon Mart in Dubai.

Sleepy waiting for the food 🙂

Wakey, wakey… the food is here!

Pancit Canton, Spring Rolls, Chicharap,  Siomai and Rice

Braised Beef Rice Topping

Buchi

 Some more Siomai!

Sago Gulaman

Iced Tea Milk

Mouth-watering! Delicious! I’d love to come back 🙂

It’s the year of the Water Dragon!

And because of this, we visited DRAGON MART!

Dragon Mart is a huge shopping complex located in Dubai. The 150000 square meter dragon-shaped structure has 3950 shops engaged in the wholesale and retail trade of a variety of Chinese products.

At 1.2km long, Dragon Mart is the largest Chinese trading hub outside of China. Built like an enormous pink dragon, it includes showrooms, shopping areas, restaurants and warehouses that house no fewer than 4,000 enterprises dealing in Chinese products. Although it’s divided up into various sections such as clothing, hardware and furniture, often these are quite mixed up and you never know when you may stumble across a ridiculously cheap pair of comfy shoes, a slinky silk embroidered gown or an authentic-looking set of pearls.

The Dragon fountain by the entrance

 …some more water dragons!

Some red Chinese lanterns will welcome you when you enter the building. Notice the huge UAE and China flags.

We came here for cheap toy cars. But we also found these… vintage toy cars!

… Dad said they are NOT for playing! They are intended for display only. I don’t like them then 🙂

Checking out CCTVs. Hey, is that us? 🙂

Lunch at Chowking

A quick stop for Gelato-Divino ice cream.

…yummy!

I loooooooove toys !

Yesterday, we visited the GLOBAL VILLAGE in Dubai.

dubaichronicle.com

Global Village  Dubailand is claimed to be the world’s largest tourism, leisure and entertainment project. It is the region’s first cultural, entertainment, family and shopping destination. Every year, it has 6 million visitors over an area of 17,200,000 sq ft (1,600,000 m2).

Global Village started out in the form of a number of kiosks in 1996 located on the Creek Side opposite to Dubai Municipality. It then later shifted to the Oud Metha Area near Wafi City for 5 years.Today, Global Village has 6 million visitors at its current location in DubaiLand. (wikipedia)

This is how it looks like from afar, during the day, 30 minutes early before the gates opened.

At the entrance, with Mom. Can you see me? I’m sitting on the stroller 🙂

Global Village has over 26 pavilions each representing different countries. My parents and I went around the village for 4 1/2 hours try to sample each country’s culture.  It was like going around the world for 4.5 hours!
