About a week ago was one of the best week ever. Having five days in a row of public holiday leave. That's like the longest public holiday i ever had in the Middle East. Well that's because most of the time my company forced us to work on alternate days during the holidays. Jon and Ben came down to Dubai for a short getaway. Me and wifey instead head down to Abu Dhabi for a short getaway. LOL. Of course we took turns, so that we could chill together. The rest of our buddies went back to Malaysia, betrayal! Activity 1 - Having Brunch at Leopold's of London
Wifey Cant Decide Again
We headed down to Abu Dhabi late in the morning. Had our brunch together with Jon and Ben at Leopold's of London. Since they are well-known for fresh ingredients and great for breakfast.
Imperial Roses (AED30)
Leopold's Breakfast Board (AED82)
Leopold's English Breakfast (AED80)
Their white tea was a pleasant drink. Wonderfully fragrant roses, pleasant light sweet taste. Definitely a hearty breakfast. English breakfast was lovely, homemade braised beans topped with veal sausages, veal bacon, vine tomatoes, slow roasted mushrooms and poached eggs on your choice of toast. Breakfast board definitely an interesting one. Thick cut smoked salmon, avocado, poached eggs, slow roasted tomatoes, shaved bresaola, fruit yoghurt and choice of sourdough or wholegrain bread. Activity 2 - Abu Dhabi Heritage Village
An interesting place that i have wanted to visit since two years. Been here the third time now. And still failed to visit! This time it was closed, probably due to public holiday. But was not informed in the website! However we did take a walk inside, only following a barricaded walk path towards the restaurant. Well... i will be back!
Walking towards the Restaurant
Facing the Sea
Activity 3 - Marina Mall One of the best mall in Abu Dhabi. Having interesting features such as raining sound effects. Lovely place. Nice for having a leisure shopping and chilling. Having many restaurants and coffee shops.
The Raining Ceiling
Activity 4 - Golf Time
We headed to the Al Ghazal Golf Club driving range for a round of golf. Darn... my skills got really rusty! Felt like a beginner again. Gotta work it out more. We came here as they have a really good Korean Restaurant just along the driving range. Dinner Time!
Activity 5 - Dinner at Madang Korean Restaurant
Private Seating Area
Definitely one of the hidden gems in Abu Dhabi. Hidden along the golf range but well known to many. Usually packed with diners. Having full Korean dining experience set in a traditional surroundings. Food was authentic and delicious. The End Lovely day! We headed home after dinner. The journey will take us about an hour to reach back Dubai. On the way me and wifey was not satisfied, it was holiday, we have plenty of time, hence, we stopped by the new Outlet Village Mall! Which was on the way. Gone broke this time. Will be posted soon.
