Dubai Diaries: An evening at the world’s highest restaurant

Most people who go to Burj Khalifa end up at either of the observation decks – Floor 124 or Floor 148. I instead decided to visit the At.mosphere restaurant which at a height of 1450 feet is regarded as the world’s highest restaurant.

The entry on the ground is through the Armani hotel where the staff at the reception check your booking. With regards to the dress code, the website mentions ‘smart elegant’. I had worn a formal shirt with jeans and it worked fine. Since I had sports shoes on, the guys at the reception gave me a pair of formal shoes to put on before going to the restaurant. But in order to avoid last minute hassles, I would still suggest to follow the dress code to the T rather than having to argue with them at the reception.

The lift speeds up..

The lift speeds up..

The lift goes straight to the 124th floor (in a matter of seconds) and you end up with a popping sound in your ear due to the change in altitude. Once you arrive at the 124th floor, you have to come down the steps to the 123rd floor where on one side is the lounge and on the other is the more expensive restaurant.

And I am here finally..

And I am here finally..

Menstrual leave – To be or not to be?

I must say I came across this concept only very recently when a company advertised this new policy in their organization on Linkedin. As expected from the comments section, the people were divided on whether it made sense or not. As is always the case, there are two sides to the coin and you would agree or disagree depending on the side you are on.

There are days in a month where women feel unwell when they are going through the menstrual period. And this may affect them in terms of their efficiency of doing the various tasks. So a policy like menstrual leave enables them to rest and relax without having to worry about meeting their deadlines for completing a certain task. It also shows an organization’s empathy in understanding the concerns of a woman employee.

So we have already the crossed the first half of the year. As always, it feels as though the months have passed by quicker than I can even imagine. And soon we will bid goodbye to another year gone by.

January started off with me still dreaming about my trip to Moscow and the lovely winter there. There were travel posts galore of the times in Moscow, Kuwait and Singapore. February and March were all about family and fun. I went home for the first time after coming to Kuwait and it truly felt like those days back in Muscat whenever we used to go home during the school summer vacations. There was also the trip to Dubai which culminated in a number of travel posts as well.

Mumbai, the city that never sleeps may seem like any other overcrowded metro in India. But it has a lot more to offer than shopping malls and awesome street food. It is blessed with numerous historical sites, religious places and architectural wonders that will leave you spellbound by its simplicity.

However, one of the most intriguing things about Mumbai that not many cities in India can boast about, is the sheer number of neighbouring hill stations and exotic getaways that it has.
