I was still out cold in the morning of our 1 st day at Dubai and Mom woke me up at 10 am. Gradually, I knew I had to get up. Hey, I did not remember I was in Dubai that time! “Let us order breakfast” Kochakka handed over a menu from “Palm Valley”. I and Mom pondered over the menu for some time. Mom’s suggestion was pepper roast. I was like “Not for me, I rather have a paratha!” Dad wanted idli and Kochakka, dosa. So soon I was gobbling down paratha, Dad was eating idli, Kochakka had dosa and Mom, her pepper roast. It went like this for 3 more days. Mom joked that “don’t forget that we are going back to Riyadh and don’t expect all these from me” It was time to explore Dubai, I was very excited. Kochakka offered me the front seat, it was a real privilege. We first went for a drive, looking and admiring all the buildings and we were all excited to see the Burj Khalifa. It looked totally glamorous while sparkling in the sun and showing off its smooth, silver color.
