Alone I went

So yesterday I decided to do some american junk food ‘grocery’ shopping at Waitrose Supermarket which is in Dubai mall, pretty far away from I live. But yet again, I had to. I took a cab only for the next station stop near my Hotel apartment and from there I guide myself with the metro maps, bought a 20 dirham metro card and off I went solo.

The supermarket has a space for non-muslims.  I bought Pop-tarts, Oscar mayors hot dogs, ham, american butter, pancakes!! (not Aunt Jemima but at least is Betty Crocker), snack bars, Hot Pockets, BACON! well yes, I did a junk food shopping, very expensive but guess what? I don’t care! 3320822079_2cc70ebf32_zMy soul was craving for these kind of food! I was so tired of eating lamb and chicken and now finally I have pork chops! I am so not going to leave the kitchen now! Since I have Puertorican seasoning those pork chops are going to taste so good!! aaahh!! delicious!!

After the hilarious shopping, I went to eat at Macaroni and Grill. The service was terrible and I even lost my appetite for the dessert, that’s something that I’m going to write at Tripadvisor though.  The metro is very easy and there’s a space for women and children, so it’s less crowded and it feels more secure. I really don’t trust when people say that Dubai is safe, no criminals and so on. Safety for me is first. I’m living alone in a forever strange country, thus I have to take care of myself and not trust Dubai. Although the metro is pretty safe, I like to be careful and know my surroundings.
