Movenpick Brunch & The Al Qouz Street Night Show …

So on Friday Perry and I went for Brunch at the Movenpick Bur Dubai with our friends Stef and Bas … we had a great time with them and their little girls … they are so adorable these days … they have found their legs too so after we had eaten all they wanted to do was run around the place constantly …

The food was all pretty good really … and the place had one of the prettiest salad bars …

20140125-093259.jpgLater that evening Perry and I headed to Al Qouz for the Street Night Art event … it was the first one in Dubai and the organisers had part of a road blocked off from traffic … had set up large boards for artists to come and paint/graffiti/do what they do … for the evening … it was interesting to see and some of the works were amazingly detailed and intricate …

20140125-093625.jpg 20140125-093615.jpg 20140125-093318.jpgThere was even a pop-up art studio set up in the middle of everything which looked to be a great hit with the kids …

20140125-093556.jpg 20140125-093544.jpg 20140125-093528.jpgIt was one of those events that I had heard about but was a little wary as to how good it would actually be … sometimes these things turn out to be great and really interesting and other times it can be a bit of a dud … thankfully this one was one of the more interesting ones …

In either case it was a lovely way to spend a Friday evening and even better that it could be held outdoors … makes a nice change from the crowded malls …

That is it for this week …

Till next time …
