My Week-End Pig-Out in Dubai

It is summer time in Dubai!

In the Philippines, summer time is beach time! However, in Dubai, if it is summer, we hide in our rooms, turn on our laptops, and switch the air-condition to full blast. Since it is too hot to go to the beach or even to just go around the streets, what option do we have left but to EAT! EAT! EAT!

First stop - Thursday evening - Golden Fork (A Chinese/Filipino restaurant near Al Ghurair Mall)

After this humongous dinner, we should have been full, right? But no! There was something missing... we didn't order dessert. So what do we do? We stop by a grocery store and buy some ice-cream! woopeeh!!!

We had no chance to eat breakfast the next day since we woke up at 10:30, just enough time for a coffee and a few episodes of I Am Legend (a Korean telenovela that we are watching) before preparing for church.

We had a beautiful, blessed service followed by a meal of chicken and fries with coleslaw. Then off to the grocery again to buy some snacks, in preparation for the continuation of our telenovela marathon.

Friday Evening:
After a short snooze while watching the Korean program, we decided to go out so we could walk for a while and stretch our muscles --- then get some pizza from Domino's.

I was actually still feeling kind of full because of the late heavy lunch and snacks afterwards, or so, I thought...

When we got home with the pizza, my mouth only stopped chewing when my tummy couldn't take it anymore. Why o why is food so tasty?

Now, you don't have to tell me... I know what you're thinking...and NO! We are not gluttons, we just have healthy appetites

Enough of the heavy meals! I was home-alone and it wasn't fun to pig-out by myself so I only had coffee and a slice of pizza for breakfast and lunch, topped with beef sinigang and rice for dinner.

And that, for me, is a very satisfying week-end. BURP!
