There is a new Millennium Hotel, Millennium Place, in Dubai Marina and before Ramadan, Trine and I were invited to the opening party. It was a really nice event with tasty drinks and food from the MasterChef restaurant in the hotel.
The staff made sure that our glasses were full all the time and that there was always a food platter coming our way. The beetroot cured salmon was amazing. I think I had 10 of those delicious bite-sized pieces.
Millennium Hotels is one of Chelsea Football Club’s partners, so the Norwegian soccer legend and former Chelsea player Tore André Flo was there to tell us about his career, and after a glass of wine, Trine and I had built up enough courage to go and ask him for a photo, as we had promised our dad. As you can see in the photo, Tore André Flo is about a meter taller than us:)
Trine had an early morning flight back to Denmark the following day, so we left when the party was just getting started, but we promised the nice staff at Millennium Place that we would soon be back again.
Here’s a video from the event:
