well, this is definitely going in the books.

it was my first time to go to a waterpark and obviously my first choice had to be the ever famous YAS WATERWORLD in abu dhabi. the park definitely worked wonders. from the huge waves, the amazing slides, and crazy roller coaster, down to some pearl diving and loads of coconut goodness! it was one fun experience. oh and we had our own cabana too, which made our stay even more comfortable.

one of the reasons why i went over for a visit was to check out their latest SAY YAS! summer campaign. yes, i am actually trying my luck coz visitors get a chance to win up to AED 3,000,000 in prizes, including AED 1,000,000 cash and 3 gorgeous maserati cars. oh and also a trip for four people to the ferrari factory in maranello, italy – including etihad flights and luxury hotel stay. now how cool is that?!
