This is going to be one post where I am deliberately not writing much. I want the pictures to convey it all! An amazing day – a real break away from the city’s manic lifestyle… lazing on the mat, surrounded by the greens of Al Badia Golf Club, and the famous cityscape at the backdrop… this was a real picnic – a perfect picnic, a posh picnic, a must-do picnic, a can’t-wait-to-return picnic. I have never experienced such a relaxed day out in the city which boasts of as many different kind of brunches as the number of nationalities that make up the city’s demography! On top of that I hear that the picnic brunch is being extended to a Moonlit Picnic on the Valentine’s Day (priced at AED 580 per couple, inclusive of food, soft drinks and a bottle of sparkling beverage)… please can someone offer to baby sit the Z-Sisters so that I avail this offer? For now, enjoy the Dubai weather as long as it lasts… and go out on a picnic… it’s that simple. Trying to match the dictionary meaning of the word picnic with the experience that we had – yes, a match made in the greens of Al Badia Golf Club!
