Fruits and Vegetables Market as a Weekend Theraphy

(by : Rosye Beadle)

Visiting Dubai Fruits and Vegetables Market

There is no doubt that fruits and vegetables provide so many advantages for human body. Not only is a healthy food/diet, but also help to reduce some diseases. In my experience it was more than that. It’s been a quite long ago since I visited such a huge fruits & vegetables market. So on weekend I decided to visit Dubai fruits and vegetables market. I often passed this market anyway, but never stopped by. Finally I made it. It was my fun number one. By the way it is located in Ras Al Khor industrial area, about a couple kilometres from Dragon Mart.

Fun number two, The place is huge with various options of fruits and vegetables for wholesale and some retail. My third fun, the prices are cheaper than at supermarkets. Perfect!  I felt like I was at home, buying fruits and vegetables with friendly price. Which is in Dubai, friendly or cheap price is quite difficult to find.

Anyone who wants to buy loads of fruits or vegetables do not have to worry as there are men with carts who offer their service to accompany buyers while shopping with some tip as a pay back. There were sellers that display their price list and some were not. I preferred to visit them with price lists on.

paid less than AED160 for all of these
paid less than AED160 for all of these

As considerations, they sell in a medium to large box/bag of fruits and vegetables, to be honest consume them not more than a couple of weeks. Anyway before I started shopping, I browsed the whole block (one retail block) twice, which was good for me. Be ready with small amount of money such as AED5, AED10 and AED20. Buying fruits which unwrapped by plastic ease us to check the possibility of the unqualified one. Communicate in simple way while buying/bargaining.

Seems like it is one of my weekend therapy. I hope this is useful especially for expats in Dubai

Fashion and Style at Atlantis the Palm

(by : ELizabeth Borneman)

We all know that luxury and style go hand in hand with fashion, and that combining these three elements together makes for an experience you’ll have a hard time forgetting. Fashion inspires not only those intimately involved with the process of creating, but those who can use and see the products as well.

Fashion is a collaborative effort that pushes the boundaries of how we see the world. From clothing to furniture, cars to buildings, the designs that create the world around us all attribute to the style and fashions that appeal to us the most.

We’re all involved in the fashion world to greater or lesser degrees, and whether or not we like it! Every time we go shopping for new shoes, clothes, or even things to fill our houses we are making fashion choices. From practical fashion choices to some of more fantastical offerings seen on the catwalks of the world fashion is everywhere.

When fashion meets luxury you have a recipe for style unlike any other. Atlantis The Palm Resort in Dubai is one of those places that seems bigger than reality, from the extraordinary architecture and location on the world’s first man-made island to events and amenities they have just for the fashionista in all of us.
