weekend snapshot #10

Posted by Kero at Wednesday, July 16, 2008
The heat is on and temperature is soaring to 49 degrees celsius. Beaches and parks are impossible to visit these days so people are all heading to shopping malls to cool off. The city made extra effort to keep locals and tourists coming back to the malls by creating Dubai Summer Surprises. Aside from retail therapy, there are shows, games, exhibits, and concerts all for free to keep young and old alike entertained everyday until August.

And we feel extremely lucky last Friday when we visited the Mall of the Emirates and chanced upon water-borne ballet. Swimmers from the famous Aquasync group splash it out in a specially constructed pool. Take a peek of their choreographed movements and athletic leaps.










Thank you for the visit everyone and for your comments. It will be my turn to visit your entries later. Take care and enjoy the rest of the week!

10 sweets for Kero:

if the weather was that hot, i think i'd jump into the water with those performers =). it's been hot here too, but it seems nature has a way of making you sick whether it's cold or hot. i've missed three days of work already...sigh.
