Many of us have the dream of visiting Dubai, I'm not too sure why either. Maybe cause it is a modern and beautiful city. Everything over there is over-priced! Dubai is a BIG contrast from Egypt. Everything here is clean and modern with skyscrapers and man-made desert, beach, snow and etc. I had the experience of a lifetime here. Worth visiting at least once. To sum up my trip to Dubai. =)
- Went to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. Sat the World’s FASTEST roller coaster and drove a Ferrari car!
- Went to the World’s LARGEST mall, Dubai Mall. (Took me an hour to walk from one end to another end!)
- Saw the World’s BIGGEST water fountain. (the lightings were pretty!)
- Climbed the World’s TALLEST building, Burj Khalifah and recorded the sunset.
- First time camping in the desert! (Celebrated a poor Christmas as a nomad)
- Went to a 7 star hotel, Atlantis for the waterpark. ( The hotel located on an island with the shape of a palm tree)
- Went dune bashing, camel riding and sand skiing!
First day: Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi!

It's time to go back home. SEE YOU NEXT TIME DUBAI. :)
Our first stop is to the Egypt Museum. I only took pictures outside the museum as cameras were not allowed inside the museum. Inside the museum, we saw many artifacts, monuments, coffins of the Pharoahs and Cleopatras.

|Broken nose :O|
After the museum, we passed by Tahrir Square. They were having a demonstration at that time. So scary :O
Next stop, LUNCH! :)
|Their famous nan bread|
After our meal, we headed over to the Pyramids, the main attraction for coming to Egypt. How can one visit Egypt without visiting the Pyramids? All the Pyramids have a history that dates back 2000 years ago.

After dinner, we came back to the Great Pyramids to watch the sound and light show. It was super duper cold and windy during the night time in Egypt.
Light and Sound show
On the second day, we visited Egypt's famous mosque.
Apparently, the mosque has a dome-shaped roof because during ancient times, they did not have microphones. Dome-shaped roofs help to concentrate the voices of the father.
Next, we visited the churches of the Cryptic Christians. The first church was Abu Serga church where this church received the Holy Family 2000 years ago. I think It was my first time taking pictures inside the church.
|The route of Jesus and his family had taken to come to Egypt :)|

|Look at the big sail up there! :D|

Finally, we also visited the Pharaonic Village. It is good if you are studying for an exam of Ancient Egypt. A great place to visit for a memory refresher for your exam!
|Bro bought a Papyrus boat!|
|Rich man's car!|
|making fire with just a stick :O|
|How they buried the mummy. Just for show. Not a real set!|
|Ideas on how they built their pyramids.|
However until today, how Ancient Pharoahs' build their Pyramids is not known.
|October War to regain Sinai!|

This shop's matcha ice cream was awesome! I really love it! <3

Welcome to Taiwan! A place where food is available at every corner! :) It was during the Raya Holidays (26th Aug to 31st Aug ), my family traveled to Taiwan. We took JetStar airlines from KLIA to Changi Airport, Singpapore. Spent roughly 4 hours at the airport chilling, shopping and also eating. Then, by China Airlines, we flew to Taiwan and touched down 6 hours later. On that plane, we had individual screens! I watched some movies and played some games. Here are some pictures me and my sis took when we were bored.
|Acting cute eh :P|
|Our comfortable hotel after walking for more than 10KM per day|
From the Airport, we took a bus to Cosmos Hotel and went off for supper.
|Some dried tofu i think|
Then is back to hotel for a good nights rest! :D Thank God for watching over us, allowing us to arrive safely.
Wake up early in the morning and had buffet breakfast in the hotel. They have lots of variety but sadly every single day they will serve the same food. Imagine staying there for 2 weeks man.
|Food. Food. Food|
After breakfast, we walked to Xi Men Ding. The whole street was super quiet in the morning. (Taiwan-ians wake up very late). Most of the shops were still close.
|This is how Taiwan look around 10-ish am.|
