Week 24 – Cash and Guns

It’s another week of new boardgames – I’m really enjoying this way of spending weekend nights with friends πŸ™‚

This time it was all about being part of the mafia! And as the name of the game suggests, there was cash, and guns involved πŸ™‚

Super simple concept – get a bunch of friends together around a table, each person is assigned a player and places that character in front of them. The godfather then counts down from 3 and everyone then points their gun at someone they wish to ‘kill’.Β Those who haven’t been shot are then given the chance to pick loot out of the kitty which is placed in the middle of the table… and the person at the end with the most money (and still alive) is the winner!

Easy peasy and so much fun! πŸ™‚


Week 22 – Bulgari Resort Dubai

One day while searching online for an iftar that I could book for my company to attend, I came across an advert for an iftar being held at the newly opened Bulgari Resort.

The hotel is incredibly swanky, yet the iftar was not ridiculously overpriced, so I figured this would be a great opportunity to get out to the hotel just for the sake of seeing it and pretending to be swanky and posh for a night… so I made a reservation for J & I to enjoy an iftar at the Bulgari Majlis.

I don’t really have much to say about this (shocker, I know!) so I’ll rather just let you see from the few photos I took on the night πŸ™‚

And because my photos don’t really do the hotel much justice, here are a couple taken from Google:

Week 21 – Dubai Frame

It’s Ramadan at the moment, which means shorter working hours, and so I’m trying to utilise the extra hours in the day to be productive… and that productivity comes in the form of either getting myself off to gym in the afternoons, or finding a ‘something new’ to enjoy πŸ™‚

And last week, I decided to spend one of those afternoon being a bit of a tourist – I headed over to the Dubai Frame.

Wikipedia has this to say about it:
The Dubai Frame is an architectural landmark in Dubai, and has been described as ‘the biggest picture frame on the planet’. The frame stands at 150m high, and 105m wide.

It was quite fun walking across the glass floor, and of course it’s always great to see the city from high up… but it only took me about 20 minutes from the time I parked to the time I was back at my car. This is a good attraction if you’re looking to just fill up a bit of time in the afternoon or evening, and want to look out over the city, from the old and the new sides.
