So what to do on a lazy Friday?
Well, exactly what I did…lazing around the house doing nothing. To make the day a bit productive, I thought I’d blog about the posts I have been meaning to write. Let’s go back to last week.
Part of my living life to the fullest, is enjoying even simple things. Sitting in a cafe, a drink in hand, piano in the background, taking in the whole atmosphere of the place, the calmness…
St.Maxim’s certainly offers that. Away from the busy traffic of shoppers in Mall of the Emirates, and just above the Kempinski Hotel, I found a haven. You can dine here, or simply enjoy a cup of coffee, or even a drink.
Yes, they have a bar in the lounge area complete with live entertainment. A duo, consists of a man and a lady. He plays the piano and she does the vocals.
Listening to the song, in a language I could not understand, but seems to transport me to another world, to a time passed. A time when people dress up elegant. Like Audrey Hepburn. The ultimate icon for such elegance and natural class. Long evening dress, pearls and an updo in the morning, coffee in hand and perhaps a croissant in the other, gawking outside Tiffany’s. Yet she exuded same vibes of class of what we’d consider weird if ever we would see someone else doing the same thing.
The decor, the music, and the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s playing nonstop in the background, ties the whole theme of elegance at St. Maxim’s.
