Once In October

Thanks to twitter and other media tools that spread the word in June 2011 of Kim Kardashian coming to Dubai and she finally did in October. So, she was in town for the opening of the yummy fatty milkshake bar "Millions of Milkshake." The concept of this milkshake bar is simple - customers design their own perfect milkshake with over 50 delicious toppings to choose from. Any of these toppings can be blended with a choice of ice cream (yum), non-fat yogurt or non-dairy ice cream to make their own custom shake.

It was Kim Kardashian weekend to be honest. On the 13th of October we attended a press conference in Atlantis Hotel, The Palm, Dubai. Kim Kardashian, her mother Kris Jenner and Sheraz Hasan, Millions of Milk Shake owner, were the main speakers of the event. Questions from the press were very expected as usual and the number of questions were very limited. I didn't have the chance to ask her my question. Never ask what was it, cause I remember nothing. In all, the event was well organized.

Thanks to UAE exclusive franchise holder Emirates Hospitality Group that gave us the opportunity to meet Kimmy! Ya, and she was happy to visit Dubai! (she kept repeating that for like million times)

Enough questions, time for some yummy Kim Kardashian signature Millions of Milkshakes shake! (its the most expensive shake on the menu!)

Hello Kimmy! She's super gorgeous!
