Pik-Nik at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi

I woke up this morning with the sun peeking at my windows sill. I jumped out of the bed to take a look outside and it already stopped raining. It was raining for a couple of days but today is bright and sunny.  We usually have an unlimited perfectly painted blue sky like this every single day here in Dubai and since we are already in November, there's a hint of winter in the air.

When my sister came to Dubai for another training, we seize the opportunity to catch up over dinner at the charming The China Club in Radisson Blu Deira Creek . Each corner of The China Club is balanced and relaxed, something so distinctive to every Chinese restaurant. Yum Cha is an eat all you can dim sum experience which got our dumpling cravings covered. It's not just all about dim sums though, there's a lot more and for just 99 dirhams per person with free flowing iced tea infused with fresh fruit juices. We started off with some hearty hot and sour soup for me and chicken and corn soup for the rest of the family and some individual serving of cold noodles for
