MONICA’S TOP TIP
Check out the hydroponic farm on the beach AND do check out the very sophisticated Library Bar!
Meeting fabulously family friendly Mr Modesh at DSS
He’s Mr Modesh as he’s 20 years old this year! Known to all us Dubaians as the symbol of DSS the family friendly Modesh is back at Modesh World. Take the kids along to experience this perfect activity and experience for our current weather!
Imagine a small, indoor theme park designed with kids in mind that provides fun and games throughout the summer. There are pop up events and workshops held during the week and a good selection of eateries too.
Don’t forget Modesh has very recognizable friend – Dana too, so look out for her. Of course DSS the Dubai Summer Surprises festival is a time when all kinds of offers appear throughout the mall, events happen and there are lot’s of chances to win super prizes every day. You might be lucky!
Re food do check out the Polish ice cream place that they also had at Expo!
ENTRY FEE IS FREE but some pop up workshops and shows may be chargeable
VENUE for MODESH WORLD is The World Trade Centre Sheikh Saeed halls 1, 2 and 3
TIMINGS Open every day from 10 am till late from July 1st till August 28th
Some moody theatre depending on your vibe this weekend at the Courtyard DXB
Do check out some theatre this weekend depending on your mood, who’s going and which day you’re free! So Saturday sees a fabulous performance of the play Oleanna written by David Mahmet originally in 1992.
This is a 2 character drama centering around the evolution of interactions between a student and her uni professor. Many issues and problems are generated by miscommunication, political correctness, and what constitutes appropriate and inappropriate behaviour. Good Question, right?
So the themes around the play still resonate very strongly in our society today. I reckon it will generate a lot of discussion and food for thought. If Monday is when you’re free and you’re in a lighter mood then go along for some very funny improvised comedy sessions called This Is Impro and you the audience have a role in determining the themes around the comedy that’s presented! So go along, have a laugh or take the mic and make us laugh!
OLEANNA – SATURDAY 9th JULY
THIS IS IMPRO – MONDAY 11th JULY
Both events are FREE EVENTS but you must call ahead to register beforehand. And do get there at least 30 minutes before hand to ensure you get a seat!
NEW FOR SUMMER! Monica’s Travel Tips
Take Advantage of the Biometric Path – Get Out Faster!
The Smart Tunnel is a world-first for passport control, whereby passengers simply walk through a tunnel and are cleared by immigration authorities without human intervention or the need for a physical passport stamp. All it takes to register is a quick photo at check-in to capture facial data. Travellers can check-in, clear immigration, access airport lounge – only one of our lounges in Concourse B, and board flights at selected gates purely by facial recognition or using your boarding pass.
Home check-in Service – Easier, stress free travel to the airport, no need to book a big car!
Emirates home check-in is an Emirates service available in Dubai and Sharjah, fulfilled by DUBZ. DUBZ agents complete the check-in process in your home, hotel or office and take your bags to the flight while you enjoy the rest of your day and breeze through the airport later. Book and pay for the service at least 24 hours before your flight and you may proceed to the Airport check-in up to six hours before your flight departs. When you book First Class, the home check-in service will be complimentary.
