We spotted our first Whale Shark at Dubai!

Check out this 'aquarium' at the Atlantis, Palm Jumeirah Dubai...

We were mesmerised!

The superstar ... a baby Whale Shark!

The Atlantis, Palm Jumeirah - Dubai

Which hotel in Dubai hosts a ... Harry Winston?

This is ... Atlantis!

Nice eh!

A closer look at the signature chandelier ...

Chint'zy... yes! It sometimes reminded me of Sunway Pyramid and Palace of Golden Horses!

One day ... I wanna dine here! It happens to be 3 Michelin Star chef Santi Santamaria's first restaurant outside of his home-country of Spain!

Home made chicken rice ... With love!

Hmmm, seems one of the secrets of excellent hainanese chicken rice is to use ... ice cold water! bbG plunged the chicken which had been boiling in a big pot, into ice water for about 5 . Seems this would stop the cooking process and tighten the skin! It worked :-)

Lovingly rinsing the chicken with ice water :-)

Bring on the chicken rice chilli sauce ...

The end product! Delicious :-)

More Har Meen from our kitchen!

Har Meen (Prawn Mee) from bbG's kitchen with Sambal ... magic!

Simply delicious! Life is certainly made more bearable in Abu Dhabi with bbG's cooking...

More Reem Island Malaysian food!

Tapowed some food from Reem Island cafe last week, we are grateful for Malaysian food in Abu Dhabi!

Tofu ...

Fu chuk with minced chicken ... really good!

Interesting! Ham Choy steamed fish ...

The "best" dish ... Orange/lemon roast chicken. Delicious!
