Global Village – Saw the world in 4 hours ;-)

Last night, we took my cousin to Global Village. It is this major tourist attraction place, where different countries ( China, Greece, India, Yemen, Austria, Phillipines, Morocco, Spain, Pakistan, Qatar, Kuwait, Thailand, KSA, Africa, Vietnam, UAE, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Jordan, and many more)  from all over the world have set up their pavilions and they sell and display the stuff for which their country is most famous for. It is really an amazing place to visit. You learn a lot about different people, their culture, clothes, food and their styles.

My cousin and I freaked out on the food!!!!

We had Baraf Golas there from the Pakistan pavillion!Baraf golas are basically crushed ice balls, soaked in different syrups. Syrups with a variety of colours and flavours sprinkled all over it! It is appealing and mouth watering to all age groups!

We had asked the Pakistani bhaiyya to put rose and lemon syrup on the ice! it was simply delicious!!

We also bought waffles, they were called ‘Holland waffles’ and we asked the cute Dutch guy with amazing grey eyes (Seriously, we both were in love with him 😛 ) to put maple syrup, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.

The waffles were heaven!!

Apart from these two, we also ate caramel popcorn, Kulfi icecream, potato sticks, tasted different types of honey from the Yemen pavilion and ate yummy Shawarma’s for dinner. And we broke records by seeing the whole world in 4 hours 😉 lol

We also saw this lady who was making beautiful rugs, with her two hands on a hand-loom. She even showed us how to do it. It was amazing to see how fast she was making it. Normal people like us would take months or years to make this!!

In the second photo, she was showing me how to make the knots, thats why  the 4 hands!! 😉
